Online shopping has become a global trend in the past three years and the U.S. and China are the top two e-commerce markets in the world. In the U.S., e-commerce as the share of total U.S. retail sales increased from 10% in 2019 to almost 15% in 2022, and the U.S. e-commerce sales share is expected to continue to grow to almost 25% of total retail by 2025 (equal to over 930 billion USD in e-commerce sales).

In China, e-commerce already makes up 30% of total retail sales, mostly driven by high mobile-internet use (the number of online shoppers in China rose from 460 million to over 840 million in 2021). China’s e-commerce market is the largest in the world with a total sales volume of over 2 trillion USD per year.

Therefore, retailers in both the U.S. and China will be wise to continue to invest in their e-commerce experiences to maximize sales.

In the U.S., e-commerce leaders like Amazon and Ebay have already set high expectations for shoppers. In China, Tmall, a spinoff from Taobao, represents over 60% of transaction share.

It’s important for online retailers to ensure their homepage makes a positive first impression. A customized and reliable experience is critical to e-commerce success.
