From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed Feb 17 2016

Internet retailing recorded strong current value of 15% in 2015, with sales in the channel rising to Ä2.8 billion by the end of the year. Internet retailing is consistently becoming an integral part of the multi-channel retailing strategies for many of Irelandís store-based retailers as they seek to enhance sales. Technological progress in terms of improvements to broadband speeds and the updating of Irelandís mobile telecommunications networks to the 4G standard have also played a role in boosting growth in Internet retailing. Many Irish consumers are becoming more accustomed to shopping online, particularly as delivery times are improving, with many retailers using courier services to ensure that deliveries arrive on time.

Competitive Landscape Inc remained the leading player in internet retailing in 2015 with a 5% value share. The company has a reliable reputation among Irish consumers and offers a diverse range of products, which it has used to attract consumers for many years. In addition, Amazonís e-readers brand Kindle and its music downloading service remain popular amongst Irish consumers. Amazon has the potential to develop much further in Ireland if it were to offer a dedicated site for the country and enable Irish consumers to resell products on its site.

Industry Prospects

Internet retailing is expected to continue experiencing relatively strong growth over the forecast period, with a value CAGR of 9% expected in constant 2015 terms and the channel is expected to achieve Ä4.3 billion in value sales in 2020. There is set to remain strong demand for online selling during the forecast period, with more store-based retailers likely to move into this channel. However, it is envisioned that Irelandís leading store-based retailers will maintain a physical presence as many consumers do prefer to go physically to a shop and buy products that they can see and touch for themselves.
