ECOMMERCE ON THE RISE IN NORWAY!

ECOMMERCE ON THE RISE IN NORWAY!

Posted on Juli 11, 2015Categories Ecommerce

I started working with eCommerce in Norway around 5 years ago. At that time the big brands had their webshops up and the smaller shops were just creeping in. Some of the people i worked for did not believe much in online sales and put much more effort into the retail outlets. But deep down i always knew this day would come when sales in outlets drop and online sale start to soar.

I was happy to see the new figures out for the beginning of 2013 that came out a few days ago from Bring and eHandel Norway. The lighter pink shows the advance of the eCommerce age and the darker pink shows the decline of retail. Although i doubt that retail will ever totally disappear but its fun to imagine a world with just online shopping, although it does have a downside!

The next graph is quite obvious. When eCommerce is on the rise it usually electronics and apparel thats dragging it up. Whats interesting to see is that books are in #4 on the list. Something that looks like a very profitable niche for the future with very little competition at the moment.
