Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/25/2014 -- Internet retailing has become a matter of course among Germans, especially younger and middle-age consumers. However, the over 50s are also increasingly discovering the benefits of internet retailing. It would appear that the initial barriers to online shopping among this age group have now been broken down. Furthermore, the convenience factor remains essential as online shops are open 24 hours a day and can save the consumer both time and money. In addition, many consumers appreciate that they can find more individual products online that are not available in stores or catalogues. Accordingly, they are no longer limited to local offerings, while product prices and features can also be compared, something which is especially important to price-sensitive German consumers. Additionally, purchases are being facilitated by product reviews and advice from previous buyers.

Amazon.de GmbH remained the clear channel leader in Germany in 2013 with a 27% value share. The company continues to record high year-on-year value growth rates in a competitive marketplace. Amazon's strong growth can be attributed to very competitive pricing and a wide product range. Furthermore, at the beginning of 2013, it launched the largest model of its e-book reader Kindle Fire HD, which has been very successful. Amazon dominates sales of both e-books and regular books in the internet retailing channel. Moreover, even negative publicity about the treatment of its temporary workers has not affected its sales figures.
The internet retailing channel in Germany is expected to become even more competitive over the next five years, while at the same time margins are expected to shrink. All major store-based retailers already have an online shop or are in the process of opening one and taking share from small players. This trend is expected to continue. Furthermore, the impact of internet retailing goes beyond value sales and margins as it influences economic policy decisions. Topics such as urban planning and logistics due to a growing number of delivery vans in urban areas, payment security, data privacy and consumer rights will in future continue to be of great importance.
