Online retail, growth ahead

The good news:
Online retail is still estimated to grow, despite the global economic crash-landing the financial markets performed last year.

The bad news:
The growth from previous years is not sustainable, so you'll have to put up with single digital growth very soon!

This all kinda makes sense as its not possible to grow a market beyond the total possible number of potential customers. (See http://www.emarketer.com/Article.aspx?R=1007142 for some US-centric info.) However, its obvious that the mad days of the eCommerce teenage years are now changing into something more like maturity.

Hurrah!
