Market study

EHI and Statista ascertain the status of the e-commerce market based on 1000 online shops. In the German online market we find a high level of concentration with a few top providers. The new market analysis, "Der deutsche E-Commerce-Markt" (The German e-commerce market), from EHI and Statista, establishes the structure of the online market and analyses it. For this purpose the 1000 biggest online shops in Germany were subjected to a detailed analysis for the first time.
