DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/xdp8sq/uk_b2c_ecommerce) has announced the addition of the "UK B2C E-Commerce Report 2012" report to their offering.

Number of Online Shoppers in the UK continues to grow

Hamburg-based secondary market research specialist yStats.com presents in its latest ""UK B2C E-Commerce Report 2012"" interesting findings related to the British B2C E-Commerce market. Aside from trends, revenue figures and market shares, the report covers the most successful product categories, Internet user and online shopper figures and the top players dominating UK E-Commerce.

In the United Kingdom, not only does the number of Internet users continue to grow, but also the number of online shoppers. Whereas in 2010, two thirds of the British population ordered products and services online, in 2011 this figure increased to more than 70%, compared to an EU average of less than half of the population making online purchases.

Key Findings:

- As online shopping becomes more and more popular in the UK, it is expected that almost half of physical stores will be forced to close until 2020.

- B2C E-Commerce sales in the UK are expected to experience declining growth rates from 2013 on.

- Clothes, Sports Goods (41%) was the leading online product category among individuals in the UK in 2011, followed by Travel and Holiday Accommodation and Household Goods.

- Amazon.co.uk was the B2C E-Commerce website in the UK with most traffic in May 2012, followed by Argos.co.uk and Tesco.com.
