Internet retailing plays a dominant role in growth for retailers in Europe. No longer just books and music but in almost any retail sector the web creates more growth than any other aspect. UK and Germany are the leading countries but Internet itself fades out many traditional geographic borders. Logistics and payment services are offered on European scale and fuel further internationalisation.
In some sectors Internet retailers put heavy pressure on physical shops and sectors like books, footwear and consumer electronics are under heavy pressure. Best strategic solutions are combinations of store and webshops.
Our database with over 4500 European retailers (and over 2500 outside Europe) today includes >1900 webshops with full company details.
Our tables are split in "pure" Internet including mailorder, and tradional retailers with physical shops and webshops. Tables are made on country by country and sector by sector basis
