2006 Consumer Spending

Posted on 1.29.2006
comScore Networks reports online non-travel spending is up one-third for the first three weeks in January 2006 compared with the same period in 2005. Online non-travel spending from January 1st to the 20th 2006 totaled $5.5 billion, representing a 33% increase over the $4.1 billion posted during the corresponding period in 2005. Online travel spending generated an additional $3.5 billion during the same time, up 8%.

“The 2006 year opened on a strong note, with solid growth of 33 percent in online non-travel sales versus the same period in 2005” said Gian Fulgoni, chairman of comScore Networks.   “It’s clear based on what we’re seeing so far in 2006 that the strength in online sales will not wane anytime soon.”
