Czech Republic is fastest growing European ecommerce market but UK still runaway leader, says report

The Czech Republic is the fastest growing ecommerce market in Europe as mature markets such as the UK, France and Germany begin to slow down, according to a report.

 

The 2019 Global Payments Trends Report by J.P. Morgan projected a compound annual growth rate of 16% for the Czech Republic between 2017 and 2021, the highest of the 34 countries analysed.

 

Italy and Spain, with growth of 14% and 13.5% respectively, were the next fastest-growing ecommerce markets.

 

The report found that the UK’s ecommerce market continued to dwarf those of other European countries, with a total size of €178.5 billion and growth of 9%.

 

This was followed by France and Germany, with respective market sizes of €81.7 billion and €73 billion and growth of 10.5% and 7.3%.

 

The report also highlighted the phenomenal growth of mobile as a shopping method. The Czech Republic also had the highest percentage of ecommerce spend over mobile at 54% of the value of transactions. The UK followed with 51% of ecommerce spend taking place over mobile.

 

“Ecommerce growth as a whole across the European region remains strong. It is slowing slightly in more mature markets such as the United Kingdom, France and Germany. However, a number of smaller markets present compelling opportunities.

 

“Of the 18 European countries we examined, 10 are projected to enjoy double-digit ecommerce market expansion between now and 2021,” said Catherine Moore, MD and president for Europe at J.P. Morgan Merchant Services.
