Online Retail - Different routes to development create global online retail boom

Summary

Even in mature economies which have enjoyed the benefits of online retail shopping since its inception in the 1990s, it continue to grow at rates most other markets are incapable of. Emerging consumer societies, such as those in China and India, have forged means of shopping online unique to their societal and geographical features, whilst latecomers such as Canada are experiencing rapid growth as technology gains influence over consumer habits and companies change strategies to take advantage of a changing business environment. Online shopping shows little sign of deviating from the seemingly inevitable future of retail domination around the world.

But some countries have been much slower in development than is often presumed. Canada, for instance, only recently began to get the bug of online retail and is now experiencing rapid and significant changes in consumer culture.
