Comscore M-Commerce Data Shows Mobile Added $7.3 Billion in Q1 SpendingComscore Chairman Emeritus Gian Fulgoni to Present Overview of Q1 2014 E-Commerce Trends in Upcoming Webinar
RESTON, VA, May 13, 2014 – Comscore, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCOR), a leader in measuring the digital world, today released its estimates of Q1 2014 U.S. digital commerce sales. Q1 2014 saw desktop e-commerce spending rise 12 percent year-over-year to $56.1 billion, marking the eighteenth consecutive quarter of positive year-over-year growth and fourteenth consecutive quarter of double-digit growth. M-commerce spending on smartphones and tablets added $7.3 billion for the quarter, up 23 percent vs. year ago, for a digital commerce spending total of $63.4 billion in the first quarter.
“Q1 e-commerce and m-commerce spending growth have seen a modest acceleration versus the fourth quarter, which is a positive sign in light of overall softness in consumer discretionary spending across the broader U.S. economy during the early part of the year,” said Comscore chairman emeritus Gian Fulgoni. “As we look ahead to the remainder of 2014, we hope that signs of improved consumer sentiment and a strengthening job market will help further bolster digital commerce. In addition, with several key consumer tech product upgrade cycles and new product introductions expected in the back of the year, there would appear to be continued momentum for the market throughout the year barring any unforeseen economic troubles.”
Other highlights from Q1 2014 include:
