Global 2020 Ecommerce Report

Download the Global 2020 Ecommerce Report for an in-depth analysis of online retail around the world.

In great part thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, it has been an extraordinary year for the ecommerce sector. As countries went into lockdowns, more and more consumers around the world turned to ecommerce to purchase goods they could no longer buy in person. Even when restrictions have eased, the evidence is that consumers do not return to previous purchase patterns. For this reason, the sector has changed over months at a pace that would normally take years.

As well as highlighting numbers that show these changes, the Global Report offers in-depth coverage of different ecommerce regions and countries, ranging from developing nations in Africa to mature markets such as the USA.

We also speak to retail professionals from around the world and consider some of the issues that will affect the sector in the years ahead: from increasing concerns over sustainability to the way that governments struggle to regulate the biggest technology companies.
