In most part, such booming progress is due to the increasingly wide availability of online commerce services. People now can easily shop and order services via smartphones (with apps like Uber, Amazon, etc.). And over the last 5 years, this tendency has grown from 16.2% to 53.2%
of total mobile traffic (which was measly 0.7% back in 2009).
This steady growth doesn't mean, however, that owners of online marketplaces
and stores can sit back, relax, and watch the profits flow in on their own.
The market competition grows along with the sales numbers. In the struggle of keeping up-to-date and in demand, all market players without exception have to progress and adapt. That means adopting the latest, trendiest eCommerce solutions, both in terms of backend performance and frontend user-conversing powers.
The following eCommerce trends, in our opinion, will dominate (or continue dominating) the market in the nearest future and help you keep your customer audience motivated and engaged for at least a couple of upcoming business years.
