The growth of global ecommerce is mind-boggling. In 2017 it reached around $2.3 trillion and is expected to hit $4.5 trillion in 2021 (according to a Statista report). In the US alone, ecommerce represents almost 10 percent of retail sales — a figure that is growing by nearly 15 percent each year.

“Voice will gain more prominence in 2018 as voice assistants such as Google Assistant and Alexa become common place,” predicts Mari Corella, a fashion and beauty ecommerce specialist. “Walmart and Google recently announced a partnership to allow shopping through Google’s voice assistant, Google Assistant. This will mainly be used for reorders.”
