According to Statista, revenue from eCommerce in Spain is expected to grow on an annual growth rate (CAGR 2020-2024) of 7.6%, resulting in a projected market volume of €22.9 billion by 2024.
This is also shown in other figures: 7 in 10 Spaniards between 18-65 years old bought online in 2019, which represents almost 20.3 million people.
Although the computer is still king, is the fact that the use of mobile for eCommerce grows steadily year over year and it is already being used by 53% of online shoppers (VI Annual Study of eCommerce in Spain, IAB Spain and Elogia, 2019).
