|eCommerce an opportunity for Maltese businesses|
|Written by Theresia|
In the past 10 years, the concept of eCommerce amongst Maltese has changed from a vague myth to a thriving reality. In Malta, online activity by both consumers and businesses is growing. A survey conducted by NS0 in 2010 revealed that 94% of Maltese businesses use the Internet and 70% of these Maltese businesses own a website or a home page. Maltese businesses generated over €1.3 billion in eCommerce sales in 2010, this accounts to 21% of the total turnover for businesses that own an eCommerce site (NS0, 2011). In addition, 25% of the businesses surveyed had placed orders via computer networks in 2010. In monetary terms, this accounted for more than €1.1 billion (NSO, 2010). When comparing these statistics with those of previous years, we can undoubtedly say that in Malta online activity by businesses is on the increase.
Online Activity by Maltese consumers
It is also interesting to note that the percentage of Maltese Internet users for respondents aged 16- 34 is 68%, this is significantly higher than the 61% average. Moreover from 2009 to 2010, there was a significant 10% increase in the usage of online trade amongst 45- 74 year olds. These statistics indicate that eCommerce usage amongst Maltese is there to stay and might increase substantially in the coming years.
Industries most likely to benefit from ecommerce in Malta
Other types of goods and services are also frequently bought over the Internet by Maltese, including films and music (22.5 %) and tickets for events (20% of respondents). NSO’s statistics also reveal that 92% of goods purchased via eCommerce in Malta originated from other EU member states.
What is certain is that for some businesses in Malta, eCommerce provides the potential that can be used to reach new business opportunities. eCommerce might be an option for businesses that would want to reach new market segments or target international customers.
In today’s highly competitive business environment, successful companies are proactive and are able to reap the advantage of new technologies. Such companies are able to stand out and provide a superior customer experience.
