Australia - E-commerce - Consumer Statistics and Analysis

Synopsis

The hype has passed but the reality is positive and figures show increasing numbers of Australians are shopping online. The Business-to-Consumer (B2C) market holds great promise for many industries where convenience and ease of use are priorities for consumers. The consumer market is more driven by fulfillment rather than by advertising. Some projects have seen the Internet and electronic communication as another communication medium and distribution path, while some other projects haven’t. This report on B2C e-commerce collates revenue figures and con, and notes some e-shopper profiles and buying behaviour.

Purchase with Confidence

As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.

Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.

The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it.

Greg Combet, Former Minister for Climate Change, Industry and Innovation
