Online Retail Market in the US: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges
The growing seasonal and holiday sales is notably driving the online retail market growth in the US, although factors such as transportation and logistics may impede the market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the online retail industry in the US. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.
Key Online Retail Market Driver in the US
The growing seasonal and holiday sales is one of the key drivers supporting the online retail market growth in the US. For instance, from November 1 to December 24, e-commerce sales in the US increased by 11% in 2021, when compared to a massive 47.2% growth in the holiday season of 2020. E-commerce sales made up 20.9 % of total retail sales in the holiday season of 2021, slightly higher than 20.6 percent in 2020. Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday are the days that see a high amount of online shopping. Apparel, footwear and accessories, consumer electronics, computer hardware, and toys are the largest gaining product categories during the holiday season. Consumers in the US spent $204.5 billion online in November and December 2021, up 8.6% over the same period in 2020. Such exciting sales and offers are driving the market growth.
Key Online Retail Market Trend in the US
Omni-channel retailing is another factor supporting the online retail market growth in the US. It is rapidly becoming the norm for many retailers in the US. It offers consumers the option to shop online and pick up the merchandise from the store nearest to their location on the same day. Retailers are observing a high web influence on their in-store sales. For instance, Best Buy is integrating its offline and online stores to boost revenues. As a part of its omnichannel strategy, the retailer is utilizing physical stores as distribution centers for online purchases. According to Best Buy, 40% of its online shoppers prefer picking up their purchases from physical stores. Best Buy also challenges online and discount retailers with its match-to-price strategy, claiming to offer gadgets at or below the price offered by competitors. Such strategies are expected to boost market growth during the forecast period.
Key Online Retail Market Challenge in the US
Transportation and logistics are some of the factors hindering the online retail market growth in the US. Product procurement or sourcing, shipment of ordered items, and delivery to customers are the three major processes where the intervention of transportation and logistics come into the picture. All these processes require a high investment of both time and money, which challenges the efficiency and effectiveness of retailers and their costing strategies. The higher cost incurred from transportation and logistics reduces the margin of retailers, and most of the time, retailers are unable to break even. Between rising fuel prices, driver shortages, as well as a governmental and societal push for increased digitization and sustainability, transport and logistics will continue to be under a lot of pressure. Such factors will negatively impact the market growth during the forecast period.
