Online sales now represent 6.5 per cent of the nations overall spending.  This is up from 5.8 per cent in 2012.

Online Clothes Shopping is Growing Fast!

Posted on 30 July 2013 by admin

Research from secondary market research company yStats confirms the popularity of online clothes shopping worldwide, revealing over one third of all internet users made or intended to make a purchase in the last financial year.

The report, Global Clothing B2C E-Commerce Report 2013, analysed spending patterns across the major world markets including America, Europe and Asia Pacific.

In Australia, clothing was the second most purchased product category in B2C e-commerce, following electronics in 2012. It is expected to remain the fastest growing product category in online retail throughout the next five years.

In Japan, clothing has become the most popular product category for online shopping. In fact, several US retailers have commenced rolling out sites over the past two years.  Online clothing spend is also popular in South Korea, however single-digit growth figures in 2012 indicate the market is a mature one when it comes to the etail space.

In contrast, China has recorded booming growth rates with three quarters of the female population having purchased clothing online. It’s unsurprising major global brands such as Asos, Macy’s, Inditex and Levi Strauss are pushing to secure a foothold in the market.

NAB Online Retail Index 2013

Posted on 15 July 2013 by admin

NAB have released their annual online retail checklist that shows a massive growth in online sales 27% compared to a paltry 0.4% growth in traditional retail sales.   It’s not surprising that NSW is by far the largest state when it comes to purchasing online.  But perhaps what is surprising is that Queensland doesn’t lag far behind Victoria when it comes to online purchasing power.  In fact Victoria disappoints in the online shopping states and many online retail sources have expressed some surprise at the small percentage of sales that Victorians contribute.  It seems that a concentrated population with a strong traditional shopping cultures struggles to join the online rush.

The 35-45 year old age group continues to rule the online roost, which seems to indicate that purchasing power is the main driver for online sales – the same as it traditionally.

Australian online shopping market and digital insights

Posted on 01 July 2013 by Jessica Murray

In 2012, 9.6 million Australians aged over 15 years will make online shopping purchases, according to the latest research by PwC and Frost & Sullivan.

Over the next 12 months, 88% of online shoppers in Australia are expecting to maintain or increase their online expenditure, indicating that there is solid momentum in online shopping uptake. This continual rapid growth in Australia and offshore is driving structural changes in the traditional retail model.

What is driving the growth of online shopping?

The factors stimulating growth and usage include:

  • Greater variety/choice of goods
  • Consumers seeking greater value in their purchases
  • Rapidly increasingly usage of mobile devices
  • Continued strength of the Australian dollar
  • Increasing level of sophistication and comfort amongst consumers across all age groups
  • Use of social media by both consumers and retailers to drive brand awareness and
  • Proliferation of group buying sites.

More than 50% of Aussies Now Shop Online

Posted on 20 June 2013 by admin

It’s official. The number of Australians who shop online has tipped over the 50 per cent mark for the first time.

After over a decade of consistent year-on-year growth, internet shopping finally reached mainstream status in the first quarter of 2013: for the first time, Australians who don’t buy something online in an average three month period are in the minority.

The figures, revealed as part of the Roy Morgan Research State of the Nation report earlier this month, has confirmed again that online retail is a growing force.

The report, compiled by conducting over 50,000 interviews a year, aims to examine how digital technologies are affecting consumers’ habits, attitudes and behaviours.

To be exact, the study found that, some 50.3 per cent of Australians had shopped online in the last three months, with the average internet shopper spending $285 online per four week period.

Travel, Entertainment & Leisure, Electronics, Fashion and Food & Beverages were listed as the top five categories by expenditure.

According to the latest consumer data from Roy Morgan Research, Australians (aged 14+) also spent $24.3 billion online in the 12 months to March 2013, an increase of 11.9 per cent from a year ago.

The report, which has a special focus on online retail, also indicated a 12 per cent growth in the sector overall in the past year.

So – where does this leave bricks-and-mortar retailers in the scale of things?

According to the study, as more and more products, brands and services become available to buy with the click of a mouse button (or tap on a screen), shoppers who bought online in the last three months are increasingly less likely to go to an actual store.

In total, 23 per cent of online shoppers go to stores less often now, compared to 10 per cent in 2003.

However, according to Roy Morgan Research CEO Michele Levine the online retail beast does have an achilles heel.

“Despite the significant growth, security and trust are still unresolved issues for online retailing. Fifty-six per cent of all Australians do not feel comfortable giving their credit card details online, and even among those who have bought online in an average three month period, nearly two thirds say they only buy from retailers they know and one fifth only buy from Australian online retailers,” he said.

Will this be enough to even out the odds and give physical stores a fighting chance in the future?
