US holiday ecommerce sales will grow just 2.5%

For more insights and key statistics on the biggest trends in today’s most disruptive industries, subscribe to our Chart of the Day newsletter.

US ecommerce holiday sales will increase by 2.5% this year, an underwhelming figure compared with 8.6% growth in 2021 and a 33.0% surge in 2020.

Beyond the chart: Adobe estimates US consumers will spend $209.7 billion in ecommerce across November and December—more conservative than our forecast of $239.26 billion, with 12.0% growth year over year.

While cash-strapped consumers are hesitant to open their wallets, the slowdown is also due to a cooling effect after 2020’s boom. Additionally, Amazon and Walmart pulled demand forward with their October sales events, which took a bite out of holiday season ecommerce.
