Development of B2C E-Commerce in Russia Varies by Region

The “Russia B2C E-Commerce Report 2012” by Hamburg-based secondary market research company yStats.com provides information on B2C E-Commerce in Russia. Aside from trends and revenue figures, the report also covers the share of B2C E-Commerce on total retail sales in Russia, as well as product categories, Internet users, online shoppers and leading B2C E-Commerce players in Russia.

 

Hamburg, Germany, November 30, 2012 –(PR.com)– From 2011 to 2012, B2C E-Commerce in Russia grew by almost 30 percent and mobile Internet use still continues to increase more and more. However mobile shopping has not been very popular in 2012. In contrast, online group shopping continues to gather momentum in Russia.

High Growth Rate in Russian B2C E-Commerce until 2015
B2C E-Commerce continues to grow: by 2015, revenue is expected to be twice as high as in 2011. Between 2012 and 2015, the strongest growth factors for B2C E-Commerce in Russia are predicted to be an increasing number of Internet users and online shoppers, and a higher average income. In 2011, B2C E-Commerce accounted for less than two percent of total retail sales and only slightly more than one percent not taking services into account. The number of Internet users is expected to amount to nearly 60 million by 2012, 40 million of whom are projected to access the Internet daily. Working and learning were expected to be the main reasons for the Russian population to access the Internet in 2012, with more than ten percent of all Internet users using the Internet to submit orders. While in 2011, approximately one-fifth of the rural population shopped online, online shopper penetration in “Moscow and the surrounding Area” amounted to about 50 percent.
