It’s no secret that eCommerce is a market trend that's only getting bigger. In 2018, 10% of all retail goods were bought online. In 2020, only two years later, that number jumped to almost 50%. With that said, about 14.5% of all retail spending will be via eCommerce this year and they’re projecting that by 2024 that number will grow to almost 21%. When you’re talking about the level of retail goods processed in the United States, that tremendous of an increase is staggering. One of the most surprising numbers is that 10% of all groceries this year will be bought online.
