yStats.com reports double-digit B2C E-Commerce sales growth across Eastern Europe

The fourth largest region worldwide in terms of B2C E-Commerce sales, Eastern Europe is home to several emerging online retail markets. However, despite the double-digit growth rates of these markets, Eastern Europe’s share of global B2C E-Commerce is predicted to remain unchanged for the next four years, due to more rapid expansion of the Asia-Pacific region. As shown in yStats.com’s report, B2C E-Commerce sales accounted for only a small one-digit share of the total retail sales in Eastern Europe in 2015, less than half of the shares in North America, Western Europe and Asia-Pacific. This is an indication of the potential for further online retail growth in Eastern Europe, supported by increasing Internet and online shopper penetration in its leading countries.

Russia was by far the largest B2C E-Commerce market in Eastern Europe in 2014, according to the research findings of yStats.com. Though both in Russia and Ukraine unfavorable economic conditions and devaluation of currencies over the previous two years had a negative impact on the consumers’ purchasing power, B2C E-Commerce sales in local currency continue to grow rapidly there, spurred by improving Internet penetration and increasing interest in making purchases over the Internet.

In other major markets of the region, including Turkey and Poland, online retail is also evolving. Important trends include the growth of mobile and cross-border E-Commerce, yStats.com finds. Smartphone penetration is growing across the region, with countries such as the Czech Republic having already surpassed a 50% smartphone penetration rate among the mobile phone users. Another interesting trend is the popularity of price comparison websites, especially in Greece, Romania and Hungary. Moreover, local B2C E-Commerce websites have to cope with the growing popularity of Chinese online marketplaces, such as Alibaba.com and JD.com. However, the positions of national leaders, such as Allegro in Poland, Alza in the Czech Republic, Hepsiburada in Turkey, Rozetka in Ukraine, and Ulmart in Russia remain strong.
