E-Commerce & Internet Retailing - Coverage Report Q1 2019

Q1 2019

The E-commerce & Internet Retailing market has experienced heightened traffic, increasing 14.5% year-over-year through Q3 2018, according to the US Census Bureau. The positive correlation between rising real disposable income and e-commerce sales has fostered significant growth and expansionary opportunities in the industry. Healthy consumer confidence and wage growth throughout the year, most recently indicating a 3.2% wage increase in the December US jobs report, have resulted in personal consumption expenditure growth of 2.8% YOY in November (US Census Bureau). Heading into 2019, an unabated US economy is poised to bolster consumer spending growth and subsequently present acquisition opportunities for leading retailers to acquire e-commerce businesses in an effort to capture market share.
