UK online shoppers lead the world

Research from Ofcom has found that Britain spends more money online per head than any other developed country. On average, UK consumers spend almost £2,000 online for goods each year – around 50% more than the next-highest valued market of Australia, according to the communications regulator. Kester Mann, analyst at CCS Insight, said: 'There has been a traditional strong propensity for catalogue shopping among UK consumers and this appears to be translating also to online.' Separately, research by the Local Data Company has found that the rise of internet shopping has hurt out-of-town retail parks more than the high street. Retail parks have the highest percentage of premises vacant for three years or more, and many may never be reoccupied, according to an analysis of over 1,500 UK shopping sites.
