The national e-Commerce closed 2013 with revenue of R$ 31.11 billion, according to the forecast of the Brazilian Association of Electronic Commerce (ABComm). The result indicates an increase of 29%, in relation to 2012.
The year ended with 53 million e-customers. Fashion and accessories, home appliances, health and beauty, electronics and computers were the most outstanding categories of the period.
“Despite the slowdown in the economy and the increase in the Brazilian personal debt rate, the national e-Commerce gained ten million new customers in 2013, which contributed to maintain the industry’s average growth rates of recent years,” says Mauricio Salvador, President of ABComm.
The prediction for 2014 is that the industry will reach R$ 39.5 billion, an increase of 27%, in comparison to last year. “The World Cup should mainly leverage electronics and sporting goods categories, which are already strong in e-Commerce.” Moreover, investments in infrastructure and the arrival of 4G will bring new consumers to e-Commerce.
