The UK: King of eCommerce

Having spent time in the UK launching a US company’s UK and European software operations in the late 1990’s, its no surprise to me just how much the UK has embraced the internet.

The Boston Consulting Group reports the following regarding eCommerce in the UK:

  • In 2009, the Internet contributed £100 billion to the UK economy. That represents 7.2% of GDP.
  • The UK is the number one country in the world for e-commerce and is a net exporter of e-commerce goods and services, exporting £2.80 for every £1 imported.
  • The Internet economy is expected to grow by 10% per year.
