Walmart U.S. E-Commerce Sales Expected to Rise More Than 44% in 2020

Walmart’s U.S. e-commerce sales are expected to jump 44.2% in 2020 versus 2019, according to a report from eMarketer, which revised growth up from its January 2020 estimate of 27%.

The leap follows 36.8% growth in 2019 over 2018 and puts Walmart at No. 2 on eMarketer’s top 10 e-commerce companies list, far behind Amazon, but well ahead of eBay, which is expected to grow just 3% in 2020.

“Thanks to Walmart’s prior investments in online grocery delivery and pickup services, the retailer appears to be in a strong position as consumers have increasingly turned to e-commerce amid the pandemic,” according the eMarketer’s Cindy Lui.

eMarketer forecasts that the big-box retailer will grow its share of total U.S. retail e-commerce sales to 5.8% this year, up from 4.7% in 2019.
