Europe B2C E-commerce market reached $272.5 billion in 2019 and will grow by 7.2% annually over 2020-2030 owing to the growing adoption of mobile technology and online shopping amid COVID-19 pandemic. The major factor driving the growth of the Global B2C E-Commerce Market is the paradigm shift from offline shopping to online shopping platforms. Wide product availability, easy purchase and return, larger product discount due to absence of retailers, whole-sellers and agents are some of the factors, favoring the market growth. In European markets, consumers’ preferences for online purchase in 2020 mostly were for “Fashion, shoes & accessories” and “Consumer electronics”. Overall, home goods, food/beverages and health/beauty were among the fastest-growing online product categories in Europe in 2020, according to a survey in a new yStats.com report. However, when examining the markets more deeply individually, the pattern differs in each. For example, in the U.K., more than 50% of respondents in 2020, on average, bought clothes, shoes and accessories online, which was the leading product category. In Germany, however, the fashion and accessories segment ranked second, following consumer electronics, which accounted for nearly a quarter of total online sales in 2020. Among the important trends spreading throughout the region is the development of mobile shopping. M-Commerce is driven by growing smartphone and mobile Internet penetration. In countries such as Ukraine and Turkey over 40% of smartphone owners already have experience with mobile shopping. Another important movement is cross-border B2C E-Commerce. For example, in Slovenia and the Czech Republic close to half of all online shoppers made purchases from foreign online stores. Looking at payment methods, the report finds that cash on delivery still predominates in the majority of B2C E-Commerce markets in the region, as it is the most used payment method in Russia, Greece, Czech Republic, Ukraine, Hungary, Romania, Slovakia and Belarus. However, for cross-border purchases, credit cards are often used. The fast-growing markets of Eastern Europe have attracted the attention of international B2C E-Commerce players and investors. The region's largest market, Russia, drew hundreds of millions of dollars in B2C E-Commerce investment over the past several years from companies such as JP Morgan, Kering, IFC, Tiger Global Management, Naspers and others.
