Retail categories with high mobile traffic

Automotive parts and accessories retailers get roughly 60% of site traffic from mobile devices, the highest among all retail categories tracked by Internet Retailer.

On the other hand, office supplies retailers get the least share from mobile devices at 27%. This may be because consumers don't browse around as much for office supplies, and because they purchase these products when it's top-of-mind, such as back-to-school season or when they're in their offices (near a desktop).
