Consumer shopping is the engine that drives the U.S. economy. Over the past 5 years, consumer spending has accounted for roughly 70% of the total spending in the U.S. One just needs to look at the staggering amount of effort, budget, and research that goes into the marketing of end-user products—from new cars to personal electronics—for proof of the consumer’s spending power.
Another interesting trend: consumers are shifting their shopping activities to the online realm. Online shopping has drastically reshaped the way we purchase products. Savvy retailers have acknowledged this and have adjusted accordingly; they have fewer brick-and-mortar stores and have heavily invested in building their online infrastructure and presence. All this to accommodate the new generation of shoppers who compare prices and product reviews all at the click of their fingertips.
In 2002, consumers spent $72 billion dollars on e-commerce. In 2011, they spent $256 billion dollars. Cyber Monday alone raked in $1.25 billion in 2011. With this huge explosion of growth, we are predicted to increase that spending to $269 billion by the year 2015.
