In 2020, the company accounted for approximately 57% of all eCommerce sales in the US. The company’s revenues skyrocketed by 67.5% in two years, from 2019 to 2021. This surge in sales was partly because many consumers shopped from home.

Its share of domestic retail has doubled from 28.1% in 2014 to 56.7% in 2021. Amazon has even surpassed Walmart, whose retail empire includes an enormous brick-and-mortar infrastructure, to seize the lead in total US retail sales by 9.4% compared to Walmart’s 8.6%.

That’s nearly $2 in $5 spent online, together, the following 14 biggest digital retailers will make up just 31.0%, with the remaining 29.5% of the eCommerce pie going to everybody else. This year(2022), Amazon will pocket more than $400 billion of the country’s roughly $1 trillion eCommerce sales. The retail giant will also rake in more than five times the digital sales of its closest rival, Walmart Inc., and see those sales grow by 14.6%, faster than the overall US eCommerce market, which will expand by 14.1%.
Amazon has 2 billion monthly visits in the US, the most visited online marketplace.
That’s almost triple the monthly visits of eBay, which trails behind at second place with close to 700 million monthly visits. Amazon is way out in front, even considering eBay is a pure-play marketplace, while Amazon’s marketplace accounts for 55% of its total sales. Consumers prefer to buy from Amazon over any other retailer (online and in-store).
Nearly 50% of all eCommerce purchases in the US happened through Amazon.
There is a common perception in the US that Amazon is the only online marketplace to be taken seriously, and that is with good reason. Between groceries, home goods, health supplements, electronics, and even furniture. There really isn’t anything you can’t find on Amazon anymore.

Amazon started as a small-time online retailer in the nineties. It is now one of the most significant and valuable corporate structures. That said, you must strategize proactively and borrow a leaf from the Amazon market model.
There is no doubt Amazon provides an established customer base, but for increased acquisition, you should advertise strategically, implement new technologies, and price more dynamically. I hope you’ll utilize these figures to make future plans and adjust to changes in the eCommerce landscape.
