Home Shopping Market Report 2013

  • Published: January 2013
  • Region: United Kingdom
  • Key Note Publications Ltd

Despite the ongoing economic difficulties that have been experienced in the UK over the past few years, the home shopping market continued to observe year-on-year growth between 2007 and 2011, growing by 26.7% overall.

The main driving force behind this growth was the e-commerce sector, which has continued to expand at a rapid rate in recent years, with Internet sales increasing by an estimated 35.9% over the past 5 years. In contrast, both general mail order and direct marketing witnessed declines during the review period, due to increased competition from e-commerce retailers and restricted marketing budgets during the recession. Meanwhile, the direct selling sector appeared to recover in 2010 and 2011, following a downward trend, with renewed interest in party plan events driving growth within this particular market category, as people look to host entertaining and inexpensive events in their home instead of going out as a way of saving money. High unemployment in the UK has also resulted in a greater number of people applying for direct sales positions, which often provide flexibility and a commission-based salary.
