Online sales grow 28% in Brazil, and could double! – Accounting Journal

The numbers of online sales in Brazil do not cease to surprise positively.

In 2020, online sales grew 34.76% in Brazil. In 2021, growth was still strong, at 28.45%. The expectation is that in 2022 and in the coming years, growth will be at 20% per year, and that in 2025 the sales volume will reach an impressive R$465 billion reais.

This is what a study released by the discount platform reveals, with data from Statista on e-commerce sales in Brazil.

The annual growth rate of 20% is the highest among all countries, and almost twice the world average (11.3%).

The growth of online shopping in Brazil is high, as the penetration rate (percentage of people who make daily purchases online) is still low. In Brazil, only 49% of people made an online purchase in the last 12 months. Just as a comparison, in the United Kingdom (leading country in this factor), the penetration rate is 84%.

With regard to online shoppers, in 2021 the number was 114 million. In 2022 the projection is 123 million. And by 2025, the number is 138 million – a growth of over 12%.
