Holiday e-commerce spending will break through $100 billion in 2017 in the U.S. alone, according to a study released today by Adobe. That's almost 14% year-over-year growth. In addition, Cyber Monday will hit $6.6 billion in sales alone, even though Black Friday will have better deals.
And mobile, at last, has surpassed desktop, in at least one way.
Smartphone plus tablet e-commerce visits to retail sites will account for 54% of all visits, Adobe says, while desktop drops to 46%. In 2015, desktop accounted for 55% of all visits, while in 2016 it was 50%. Mobile has already far surpassed desktop in web use generally, but buying has been a special use case: people have tended to like more screen space.
Total sales, Adobe estimates, will be $107.4 billion.
Black Friday will account for $5 billion of that, up 16.4% from last year, while Cyber Monday's $6.6 billion will see an almost-identical 16.5% year-over-year growth.
