B2C E-Commerce in Western Europe shows strong regional Differences

In its latest "Western Europe B2C E-Commerce Report 2012", Hamburg-based secondary market research company yStats.com has compiled interesting facts and figures about the B2C E-Commerce market in Western Europe. Aside from trends and revenue figures, the report covers market shares and successful product categories, as well as Internet and online shopper figures and leading players in the B2C E-Commerce markets in the UK, France, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, and Belgium. Furthermore, the report includes information about the entire Western European region as well as the countries Portugal, Ireland and Luxembourg. For Great Britain, France, Spain, and Italy, separate reports are also available.

The Western European countries UK, Ireland and France have the highest retail website penetration, clearly surpassing the European average of approximately 80%. With regard to M-Commerce compared to all B2C E-Commerce activities, the Western European countries UK and Spain are two of the top three Western European countries.

Food and Fashion Items important British E-Commerce Product Categories
While in 2010 almost two thirds of the British population ordered products and services online, 2011 saw this figure increase to more than 70%.
In the first half of 2012, online shoppers in the UK spent almost 35 billion GBP. "Fashion and sporting goods" were the most popular product categories in 2011, followed by "Travel" and "Household Items". In the UK, online food and fashion purchases are also becoming increasingly popular, along with the use of daily deal websites. Almost half of all consumers make at least one fashion purchase per month. Mobile shopping is another growing trend in the UK.
In the UK, Amazon has the highest number of unique visitors in 2012, clearly ahead of mass merchants Argos and Tesco, which have fewer unique visitors combined than Amazon has alone.

Growing B2C E-Commerce Revenue in France despite decreasing Transaction Value
Although B2C E-Commerce revenue in France increased by nearly a quarter in the first half of 2012 compared to the same period in 2011, the average value of individual online purchases decreased. In 2012, more than half of all Internet users in France intended to book "Travel Arrangements" online, followed by services and cultural products such as books and music. Approximately one eighth of all online shoppers in France have previously made purchases with their mobile devices and another two thirds intend to do so in the near future. Meanwhile, online shopping via Facebook is less successful. Less than 5% of all Facebook users intend to make purchases using this social media portal.
In the first half of 2012, almost half of all online shoppers in France made online purchases from mass merchant Amazon, followed by travel agency website Voyagessncf and consumer electronics outlet Fnac. In terms of unique visitor numbers, generalist La Redoute comes ahead of the competition.

M-Commerce and Social Networks increasingly important in Spanish B2C E-Commerce
In 2011, more than half of all Internet users made purchases online, spending more than 800 Euro on average. The most popular products in 2011 were "Holiday Accommodation" and "other Travel Services" as well as "Event Tickets". Online food shopping has yet to successfully establish itself in Spain, whereas the popularity of mobile shopping is soaring. Aside from mobile shopping, social media sites also spur B2C E-Commerce in Spain. Almost 50% of all social media users in Spain read product and service reviews on social networks prior to making a purchase.
In Spain, computer and consumer electronics retailers draw the highest numbers of visitors. Movistar, Orange, Apple, and Vodafone are four of the five most successful companies there.

Daily Deal Revenues contribute to B2C E-Commerce Growth in Italy
In Italian B2C E-Commerce, a mid-range double digit percentage growth is expected for 2012. This can be attributed to the soaring popularity of daily deal websites and private sales, as well as to the increase in mobile shopping. Despite the growing use of mobile devices, in 2011 they only accounted for 1% of all B2C E-Commerce revenue.
In Italy, Zalando is ahead of Amazon when it comes to the number of unique visitors. IBS, an Italian seller of books, music and films, is also very successful in Italy. In 2011, it increased its revenue to 70 million EUR, the majority of which was generated online.

Travel-related Online Purchases very popular in the Netherlands and Belgium
In the Netherlands, product-based E-Commerce increased by more than 10% between 2010 and 2011, even if the average online shopping basket decreased slightly. Travel-related categories accounted for the largest share of online revenue generated in 2011. The online retail websites with the highest number of unique visitors are mass merchants Bol and Wehkamp, clearly ahead of fashion retailer Zalando in third place.
The number of online shoppers in Belgium is growing proportionally to the confidence in B2C E-Commerce safety. According to forecasts, B2C E-Commerce revenue in 2012 is expected to grow by almost 10%. "Event Tickets" and "Holiday Accommodation" were the most popular online categories in 2011. Mass merchant Unigro and fashion retailer La Redoute are the leading online retailers in Belgium, measured by the number of unique visitors.

Internet Use more widespread in Luxembourg and Ireland than in Portugal
In 2011, only slightly more than half of all consumers in Portugal used the Internet every week, mainly to research product information and other topics. After completion of online research, "Consumer Electronics" and "Gardening Equipment" were mostly bought online. In Ireland, more than 40% of all people shopped online in 2011, with travel-related arrangements accounting for the majority of purchases. In Luxembourg, both the number of Internet users and that of online shoppers were clearly above the EU average. "Books, Magazines and Newspapers" and "Holiday Accommodation" ranked as the most popular product categories.

Overall, B2C E-Commerce is widespread in Western Europe, whereby the number of Internet users and online shoppers is lower in Southern countries within Western Europe.

Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
The 3rd International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that its Call for Papers is now open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
An entirely new security model is needed for the Internet of Things, or is it? Can we save some old and tested controls for this new and different environment? In his session at @ThingsExpo, New York's at the Javits Center, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, reviewed hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal a new risk balance you might not expect. Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, has more than nineteen years' experience managing global security operations and assessments, including a decade of leading incident response and digital forensics. He is co-author of t...
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, will examine why IT must finally fulfill its role in support of its SBUs or face a new round of...
One of the biggest challenges when developing connected devices is identifying user value and delivering it through successful user experiences. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kuniavsky, Principal Scientist, Innovation Services at PARC, described an IoT-specific approach to user experience design that combines approaches from interaction design, industrial design and service design to create experiences that go beyond simple connected gadgets to create lasting, multi-device experiences grounded in people's real needs and desires.
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Bit6 today issued a challenge to the technology community implementing Web Real Time Communication (WebRTC). To leap beyond WebRTC’s significant limitations and fully leverage its underlying value to accelerate innovation, application developers need to consider the entire communications ecosystem.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
Cloud Expo 2014 TV commercials will feature @ThingsExpo, which was launched in June, 2014 at New York City's Javits Center as the largest 'Internet of Things' event in the world.
