Over the last few months, the retail sector has grown in unprecedented ways. In response to COVID19 and changing lifestyle habits among consumers, many retail brands are recording a dramatic increase in online revenue.
Retail sales in the 3rd quarter of 2020 showed an estimated revenue of almost $1.5 trillion USD in the US alone. That’s a 12 percent increase from the 2nd quarter, and a 36 percent increase compared to the 3rd quarter of 2019. Interestingly, online retail sales from eCommerce platforms accounted for 14.3%, or about $200 billion USD, of the total retail sales.
