Data behind e-commerce food leaders

The online food industry grew 26.5% in 2017, nearly nine times faster than the 3% growth of total food sales in the U.S. While the e-commerce market for food and grocery is growing fast, 2017 online sales were $31.39 billion, a fraction of the $1.0 trillion U.S. food industry.

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. The high mobile traffic may be because shoppers are comparison shopping while they're in a store or auto shop. 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).

Growth in Groupon's physical products division, Groupon Goods, has slowed since the merchandise and voucher company began selling physical goods in 2011. It may be one reason why Groupon is reportedly looking for a buyer. Groupon's stock share price fell more than 80% from the peak after their 2011 initial offering, including a 15% drop this so far this year.
