2022 Top 500 Report
Call it the little guy’s vengeance. Or the new normal. Whatever you call it, the 500 largest online retailers in North America couldn’t beat the web sales growth of the next 500 largest retailers—a sharp reversal from 2020 growth figures.
Over the past year, the Top 500 fell dramatically short of the previous year’s performance—growing 2021 web sales by only a third of the 45.7% growth experienced in 2020.
But while 15.5% growth is not an underperformance, and the Top 500 still managed to both maintain and add to their collective pandemic gains, this pattern of slowed web growth is making many wonder: have ecommerce sales hit their ceiling?
