    B2C E-Commerce: Comparing the International and Italian Markets

    €110.00
    +vat
    Taking as a benchmark the major European markets (UK, Germany, France and Spain), the USA, and the major Far Eastern markets (South Korea and Japan), these show markedly higher penetration rates for e-commerce than Italy, and slightly lower growth rates. Compared to the emerging markets (Brazil, India and Russia), Italy has a somewhat higher penetration rate and a generally lower growth rate. Italy occupies an anomalous position, having a growth rate in line with more mature markets, but a penetration rate only slightly above that in emerging markets. In other words, a market that is neither very dynamic nor very mature, but holding as yet untapped potential.

The Observatory, in this year’s research, has worked on the evidence, models, tools and proposals that enable and accompany this digital transformation.
