The Irish Internet is 30 years old this year

The Irish internet is officially 30 years old this year (.ie domains were first launched in 1988) and so it is timely to reflect on the e-commerce landscape here in 2018. What are the big trends, who is doing well and what are the opportunities for Irish business over the coming years?

Most Irish adults are now purchasing products and services online with total e-commerce spend in excess of €6bn annually. That figure is expected to more than double in the next four years to €14bn. A recent analysis of the 500 most frequently used websites in Ireland paints a picture of how the e-commerce landscape has evolved and provides strong indications of which sectors and business models will fuel the future growth.
