As Amazon continues to expand, new customers are joining every day. Here are some important Amazon stats you need to know in 2021:
Amazon Prime has over 150 million users worldwide, with over 45% of US households having access to Prime.
The most popular categories on Amazon are health and household as well as beauty and personal care.
Amazon boasts over 2 million sellers worldwide, with around half of all sales coming from third-party sellers.
Amazon has been a customer experience trendsetter for more than two decades. While the company was not the first to sell books online, it was the first to offer free shipping on all orders and the first to empower customers to share reviews of the books they bought. These innovations have helped Amazon grow from a garage start-up into one of the world’s most valuable companies.
Amazon is also a global leader in cloud computing services and artificial intelligence. The company was also an early adopter of voice search technology. All these factors are coming together to create a seamless shopping experience that will continue to be a game changer in 2022 and beyond.
Currently, Amazon has a market capitalization of almost $1.7 trillion. It commands a 48% market share in the US e-commerce industry and is expected to hit $514 billion by 2022.
Amazon has changed the face of online retail forever, and there are some mind-boggling figures that prove it. Here are some current and projected Amazon stats that shed light on its huge influence:
