Bray Predictions for 2021

Happy New Year All! With 2020 behind us, we hope that 2021 will be a brighter year. 2020 taught us a lot and put plans on hold for 2020, turning these plans into goals and ambitions for 2021.

What do the statistics for 2021 say due to COVID-19?

Forecasts show that UK consumers will spend £141.33 billion ($180.39 billion) online this year, up a massive 34.7% from 2019. This significant increase will see ecommerce account for more than 30% of total retail sales in the UK for the first time. In 2019, that share stood at just 21.8%.

This pandemic bump will not carry over into next year, though, and a more regular cadence will resume through the end of eMarketers forecast period in 2024. In fact, as the market rights itself, 2021 could see up to a 6.3% decline in UK retail ecommerce sales. It will take a few years for the retail ecommerce sales total to reach 2020’s height. But when they do in 2023, the numbers will be well more than anything pre-pandemic, at £143.51 billion ($183.17 billion).

Habits that UK consumers formed during lockdown, however, look set to endure.
