"Internet Retailing in Australia" is now available at Fast Market Research

Internet retailing continues to move from strength to strength in Australia as consumers enthusiastically embrace new entrants into the channel. Traditional store-based retailers continue to report weak performance as they struggle to compete against the price advantage that online players enjoy. One reason for this price advantage is the strength of the Australian dollar, which has encouraged consumers to shop at offshore sites. Similarly, internet retailers avoid many of the costs associated with a physical store, such as rent, labour costs and insurance, and are able to pass these savings onto the consumer and offer lower prices.

Competitive Landscape

Global international players continue to lead internet retailing in Australia. EBay Inc and Amazon.com Inc were the largest two players in internet retailing in Australia in 2013. EBay Inc accounted for 18% value share whilst Amazon.com Inc accounted for 17% value share. International players still enjoy a first mover advantage over domestic players, as these sites were quick to establish themselves several years before domestic players made significant investments in establishing online retailing operations. Since many of the international online retailers operate across the world, they have significant buying power and can consequently pass on these savings to consumers and undercut domestic and smaller players.
