U.S. Tops In Worldwide E-Commerce Sales

Driven by an improving economy and higher consumer confidence, the United States is tops worldwide in online retail sales, according to A.T. Kearney’s 2015 Global Retail E-Commerce Index.

In 2014, worldwide online sales increased more than 20% to nearly $840 billion, largely the result of e-commerce retailers continuing to expand into new geographies and brick-and-mortar chains expanding their online presence.

“The boom in e-commerce has brought challenges— both brick-and-mortar leaders and major pure-play online retailers are learning that the future of the industry is not merely online, but rather in creative omnichannel offerings that link online and physical shopping,” said Mike Moriarty, A.T. Kearney partner and co-author of the study.

Rounding out the top five countries in terms of e-commerce sales are China, United Kingdom, Japan and Germany.
