NPD: Both Brick and Click Are Exceeding Pre-Pandemic Levels Amid…

Published

“Clearly, the e-commerce growth has not impeded opportunity for brick-and-mortar to grow,” said Marshal Cohen, chief industry advisor, The NPD Group.

U.S. discretionary spending on general merchandise continues to be healthier than expected. Dollar sales for the week ending June 12, 2021 rose 15% over the same period two years ago, continuing at a pace that exceeds the 9% growth over last year, according to “Retail Early Indicator” data from The NPD Group.

E-commerce appears to have reached a level of maturity, at least for the time being. Following huge growth during the heights of the pandemic, data shows slippage in online sales growth for the first time.

  • Online sales accounted for an average of 29% of dollar sales for the 13 weeks ending May 29, 2021.
  • The latest e-commerce results were a decline from the 38% weekly average during the same time in 2020, but still elevated compared to the 21% average in 2019.

Brick-and-mortar results are a bit more unexpected. Physical store sales have not only rebounded, they have exceeded pre-pandemic levels.

  • The average weekly discretionary general merchandise dollar sales at U.S. brick-and-mortar retail for the 12 weeks ending May 15, 2021
  • The recent in-store sales were $1.7B higher than last year, and $400M above two years ago.

“Clearly, the e-commerce growth has not impeded opportunity for brick-and-mortar to grow,” said Marshal Cohen, chief industry advisor, The NPD Group. “This dual-channel growth demonstrates the need to link digital and in-store experiences. Consumers want a multi-dimensional retail option, and retailers and manufacturers need to speak to needs in both environments.”

*Source: The NPD Group/Point-of-Sale Early Indicator Report, NPD Universe, 2021.

(Discretionary retail includes the following industries: accessories, apparel, auto parts, beauty, consumer technology, DVD/Blu-ray, footwear, housewares, juvenile products, office supplies, small appliances, sports equipment, toys, video games)

eCommerce Experts Share Predictions on Post-COVID e-Shopping Behavior…

Published

on

As governments introduced COVID-related measures in March 2020, Google searches for the term “delivery” doubled overnight in the US and the EU. The following months saw a steep rise of online shopping followed by mass business migrations to the digital channels.

A leading eCommerce platform Shopify, for instance, reported a 94% general merchandise value (GMV) growth in Q4 2020 alone.

While online shopping is poised for continued growth in 2021 and beyond, experts have struggled to predict consumer behaviors as easily.

DesignRush, a B2B marketplace connecting brands with agencies, leveraged its 9,000-agencies-strong network for quick insights – or “QuickSights” – on consumer behavior predictions for post-COVID future of eCommerce.

DesignRush’s network of top-rated eCommerce experts highlighted X consumer trends online businesses should follow:

1. A TEMPORARY DIP IN ONLINE SHOPPING ON THE HORIZON

With the easing of social distancing and other measures, eCommerce marketing experts at Evestar predict that consumers are likely to temporarily shift their attentions away from online and onto the brick-and-mortar retail.

  • “We expect e-shopping behaviors to stay relatively strong even though the nostalgia of in-store shopping may see some momentum after shoppers being locked out of their favorite malls and physical stores for over a year,” said the company’s Partner and Chief Digital Officer Jonathan Gosper.

Gosper also warned smaller businesses that the industry is “entering one of the most challenging eCommerce seasons this second half of 2021,” as big brands shift investments online, the space becomes more crowded and marketing platforms tighten their policies due to privacy concerns.

2. MORE ONLINE SHOPPERS TURN TO MOBILE & VOICE SEARCH

Director of Fullestop Rahul Mehta highlighted the key technologies consumers are shifting to as well as come to expect from their shopping experience.

  • “Our recent study indicates a dramatic shift to mobile commerce,” said Mehta, adding that with the use of mobile, consumers are increasing their use of voice search and voice assistants in their online shopping process.

In terms of expectations, Mehta highlighted that consumers have come to expect at least some degree of personalization in their buyer journey, recommending that businesses invest in “personalized shopping carts to deliver a superior experience to the shoppers online.”

3. ONLINE SHOPPERS INCREASINGLY RELY ON SOCIAL PROOF TO BUILD TRUST

eCommerce designers and developers at Calvin Seng found that more consumers rely on reviews, testimonials and other kinds of social proof in as they make their purchasing decisions.

  • “Social proof coupled with AI for enhanced customer experience is important to close the gap from booming marketplaces,” advised Calvin Seng himself, the founder of the eponymous agency.
