[infographic] Are We Moving From Ecom to Mcom?

Most of us know that mobile ecommerce is becoming increasingly important. But did you know that since 2010 mobile ecommerce has grown from $221 million in the US to over $12 billion? Just five years ago mobile accounted for less than one percent of total ecommerce sales (0.59%) and as of 2014 it accounted for 18.6 percent.

Naturally, as the total number of mobile transactions increases, retailers need to rethink their digital strategy to make mobile a more integral part of their sales channel. A primary area of concern is performance. According to Web Performance Today, mobile consumers can experience up to 26 percent more frustration and become 8 percent less engaged with a performance lag of just 500 ms.
