Growth in Global B2C E-Commerce Sales, 2016 | Ecommerce Foundation

Global B2C e-commerce sales have increased since 2010. The growth rate was quite harmonious over the last few years, as shown in the charts below.

However, experts are not expected that this trend would continue in 2016, as a growth rate of 17.5% is forecast, which would result in a global B2C e-commerce turnover of $2,671 billion. Although this rate is still significant, its decrease can be seen as a first sign of the global B2C e-commerce market becoming more mature.
