Forbes Takes an Early Peak at E-Commerce in 2016

As you know, more and more people are accessing the internet through a smartphone. Hence, it’s pretty much a given that come next year, the number of those doing their shopping on mobile will continue to improve significantly. In fact, the percentage of “thumbtop shoppers” is expected to increase from 34% to 40% globally by the end of 2015. However, that doesn’t mean that the more conventional desktop e-commerce will become obsolete any time soon. It’s just that e-commerce will have to create space for the rising powerhouse, while retaining the old. The old technology will have to adapt, though, in order to keep up with the new kid on the block.
