297 million European e-commerce consumers! 

The number of European e-commerce consumers has grown steadily in recent years  and they are now 297 million. One important reason for this growth, of course, is the coronavirus pandemic, which left its mark on all European countries. 

When it comes to online shopping from abroad, 216 million European consumers  made cross-border purchases, a marginal decrease compared to the previous year. This is also an effect of the pandemic, due to delivery problems and national lockdowns. Cross-border purchases are expected to increase gradually as  pandemic-related disruptions diminish. For cross-border shopping, China was again  the favorite country to buy from for Europeans, followed by the UK, United States and Germany. 

It’s clear that the pandemic has aided growth in e-commerce in most European markets, but will this situation last? In this year’s survey, we asked consumers if they  planned to increase or reduce their online shopping after the pandemic.
