Australia - E-commerce - Business Statistics and Analysis

Synopsis

This report looks at the business-to-business (B2B) e-commerce market. Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) data presents authoritative statistics on the overall industry, while the Yellow Pages Small Business Survey presents data for the SME sector. Overall, in excess of 650,000 business order goods or services online, with about 25% of all business ordering online. This compares to less than 10% who receive orders online. SMEs still lag behind in their take-up of e-commerce. For all sectors, the success of e-commerce will be based on marketing skills, not on having the best possible knowledge of the technology. The Government’s Best Practice Model was being reviewed from November 2003.
