One third of online shoppers in Europe bought from mobile
Europe is the global leader in terms of mobile broadband penetration, though by mobile shopper penetration on online buyers it was behind such leaders as Asia-Pacific and the Middle East and Africa. One-third of online shoppers in Europe used their mobile phones to shop last year.
In the UK, the share of M-Commerce sales via smartphones was below that of tablets in 2014 and is forecasted to decrease further in the coming years. Both in Germany and France the share of M-Commerce was a small double-digit figure, and mobile shopper penetration on online shoppers in these two countries was also similar. Meanwhile, both in Russia and in Italy M-Commerce sales were estimated to double last year, while in Spain they more than tripled. In Poland and Turkey, smartphones were ahead of tablets in share of online shoppers using the device to make purchases over the Internet.
Europe-based international E-Commerce merchants take part in the mobile commerce boom. Cnova, a public E-Commerce company controlled by the French Casino Group, saw a double-digit share of gross merchandise value of its Cdiscount unit coming from mobile in the last quarter of 2014, an increase of over 50% compared to a year ago. Meanwhile, another prominent international player, Germany-based Otto Group, announced investment of a double-digit million Euro figure in tech startups, including those working in the mobile field.
