European B2B ecommerce numbers vary widely.

By B2B Ecommerce World


The 27 countries that make up the European Union are slowly and surely using more business digital commerce, which includes ecommerce sites and apps, electronic data interchange (EDI) and e-procurement among other electronic sales channels. But usage differs widely by specific industries.


In 2019, 15% of companies conducted electronic sales using only websites or apps, while 3% used only EDI and another 3% used both. Those are two key takeaways from the 2020 survey of information and communications technology (ICT) usage and ecommerce in enterprises by the European Union. The annual survey includes a response from about 146,000 companies and organisations of varying sizes.
