    Holiday online spending will hit $17.77 billion, eMarketer predicts

    Another researcher has weighed in with fourth quarter predictions of online consumer retail spending. New York-based eMarketer Inc. predicts $17.77 billion in Q4 retail spending, not far different from the $18.35 billion that Inc. predicted a week ago. EMarketer’s number is 29.1% higher than Q4 2002’s $13.77 billion.

    "Consumers remain cautious, but they`re moving more of their spending online," says eMarketer senior analyst Ross Rubin. Rubin adds that US online retail sales accounted for only 1.5% of total retail sales in the second quarter of 2003, up from 1.2% in Q2 2003, according to the US Department of Commerce.

    EMarketer bases its figures on the Commerce Department survey of 11,000 retail businesses.

    EMarketer’s Retail Industry Online report also predicts:
    • US online retail sales (not including travel) will reach $55 billion in 2003, rising to $72.6 billion in 2004;
    • 81.2 million Americans will buy online in 2003, rising to 86.5 million in 2004.

    Take off eh?
    17.77 billion just doesnt sound right.
    I'm willing to take the .77 billion so it's a nice, neat, sound bite friendly number.

    I am soooo generous.
