November is arguably the most important month of the year for internet retailers and brands alike. There is “singles day” in China, which reportedly generated US$9 billion in sales this year, and, of course, the shopping weekend mayhem that is Black Friday and Cyber Monday at the end of the month. Despite Black Friday and Cyber Monday principally being a US phenomenon, with revenues reported at US$1.3 billion this year, they have been expanding into Europe and, specifically, the UK, which has the highest penetration for beauty e-commerce among mature markets at 9.1% in Tweet-This2013, while the global average remains below 5%.

However, the phenomenal rise of social media platforms that are hoping to turn their popularity into a commercial opportunity means that they are looking at the beauty industry as a good entry point for social commerce.

Internet Retailing Increases by 25% in South Africa

Online-Retail-Banner

Internet retailing continues to see growth in value terms across South Africa. The main growth driver has been the increasing number of internet users in the country mainly because of greater internet accessibility which in turn boosts the value sales of internet retailing.

In previous years, the disparity between incomes in South Africa has had an impact on the performance of internet retailing. The high costs of bandwidth did not allow low-income and middle to low-income consumers to have access to the internet at home. As a result, only 11% of the total population had access to the internet.

Christy Tawii, Research Analyst, says “Internet retailing has seen a 20% - 30% value growth mainly because of the convenience, expansion of digital devices such as tablets and smart phones and increased competition within the online retailing segment.”

Sub-Saharan Africa: The Next Retailing Frontier

Sub Saharan Africa The Next Retailing Frontier

Retailing in Sub-Saharan Africa, with 10% CAGR for 2008-2013, showed the fastest growth globally, driven by socioeconomic factors, such as rising GDP, consumer expenditure and increasing urbanisation.

Panorama de retail en Latinoamérica ¿estaremos realmente tan afectados?

El desarrollo del retail va muy de la mano de la economía. Actualmente la economía global está pasando por un momento difícil pero la industria de retail se mantiene estable en Latinoamérica en general con tasas de crecimiento de 4% anual en términos constantes para los próximos 5 años, según datos de Euromonitor International. La región se compone de países cuyo mercado retail está más desarrollado como Chile, México y Uruguay y países donde aún hay muchas oportunidades de expansión como Bolivia, Guatemala y República Dominicana. Por su parte, el crecimiento de la clase media ha ayudado a impulsar el mercado. Aunque los efectos de la economía aún no se han materializado en el retail, se puede esperar que en el futuro las tasas de crecimiento sean más moderadas.
