FTI Consulting has produced our annual U.S. Online Retail Forecast since 2010. This research initiative draws data from consumer product categories including music and videos, books and magazines, toy and hobby, consumer electronics, sporting goods, and apparel.
Our Report has historically provided valuable insights about the state of online retail in the U.S., and the direction in which the market is headed. And, because Australia generally follows U.S. online retail trends, typically with some lag, it provides reliable predictions for Australian pure-play and multi-channel retailers. This year, our report also highlights a number of nuances between Australia and the United States.
