Key Highlights


- The global lockdowns during the first wave of the virus caused online penetration in 2020 to spike, and many consumers got used to purchasing online. Though online penetration will fall again in 2021, levels are forecast to be significantly higher than 2019 levels as consumer behavior has changed in the long term.
- As consumers increasingly spend more time on mobiles, and functionality and continually develops, the use of mobiles for retail browsing and purchase will catch-up with, and possibly overtake, laptops or computers.
- Sustainability was set to be the most important theme in 2020, and though COVID-19 created a distraction when the pandemic was at its height and retailers had to react quickly, consumer demand for retailers to introduce more sustainable options and offer greater transparency on the ethics of their practices did not wane.
- The global online apparel industry is dominated by the US and China, with market shares in 2019 of 31% and 26% respectively, but as online retail markets in Western countries become saturated, the ecommerce giants will rush to grab market share in emerging digital economies, such as India and Africa.
