Mobile accounted for 11% of ecommerce sales in 2012

With more consumers packing the power of a smartphone in their pocket, or a tablet in their bag, mobile devices are becoming a key, and popular, shopping tool. New research from eMarketer reveals the impact of mobile on last year’s shopping behavior.

American consumers spent a healthy $25 billion via mobile transactions during 2012, an 81% rise on 2011. Along with social networking, gaming and emailing, shopping has become one of the top mobile device activities.

While $25 billion may sound a lot, it’s but a fraction of overall e-commerce sales in 2012 – 11% to be more precise.

As smartphone penetration increases and the retail sector catches up with the channel, coupled with the inevitable adoption of mobile payment technology, mobile’s share of e-commerce sales will continue to grow.

Experts expect mobile to account for 15% of e-commerce sales this year. By 2016 that figure is expected to reach 27%, or $87 billion, with shopping on tablets more prevalent than via smartphones. (  source: BizReport : Ecommerce : January 10, 2013)
