In 2008 online sales accounted for 8.6% of all sales in the UK and by 2012 that figure had risen to 13.2%. That’s a little over a 50% increase in 5 years, with 14% increase being seen last year alone!
According to research carried out by the Centre for Retail Research, in 2011, online sales in the UK accounted for £50.34 billion. For 2012 they expected that figure to increase to £57.39 billion, so as the volume of online sales continues to grow year upon year, it's clear that eCommerce offers enormous opportunities.
