Amazon will own half the total U.S. retail market in 5 years

19 May 2017

From CNBC:

Amazon can’t and won’t stop growing, according to one firm that upgraded the stock on Monday.

“We believe Amazon’s established dominance in U.S. is sustainable with Prime, mobile penetration and third-party growth,” Needham analyst Kerry Rice wrote in a note to investors. Further, Amazon Web Services will continue to be a “key driver” for the e-commerce giant to grow its profits, he added.

. . . .

Over the next five years, Rice said he anticipates Amazon to grow its U.S. market share by 16 percent, which would make the company a majority player — dominating more than 50 percent — in retail. Needham estimated Amazon’s 2016 market share in the American retail sector to be 34 percent, based on gross merchandise volume.

  1. Only half? Get your act together Amazon! 😉

  2. Felix J. Torres

    The end times are upon us!!

  3. Huhwhat?

    Walmart is a $500B a year company.

    Amazon does somewhere under $100B a year.

    And US retail measures in tens of trillions of dollars.

    what are they smoking over there?

    that’s ecommerce retail, not total retail. Ecommerce is about 9% of total retail, so that would put Amazon at about 5% of total US retail.
