February Key Highlights:
- In February 2022, UK online retail sales reported a -26.9% Year-on-Year decrease
- Month-on-Month, the industry decreased -7.4% from January
- Home & Garden had a tough month, reporting a -39% YOY decline.
February posted the lowest Year-on-Year growth ever recorded in the history of IMRG’s 22-year market tracker. It beat the previous record set, just one month earlier, by a few percentage points. The stark start to 2022 is precisely as expected, given the extraordinarily strong online performance from the beginning of 2021.
