The Russian Internet trading market in 2011 can grow by 30-40%, said InSales CEO Timofey Gorshkov at a business forum on online retail in Russia. In 2010, the volume of this market, according to him, amounted to more than 180 billion rubles. However, this assessment, Gorshkov clarified, does not include such areas of online commerce as electronic tickets, message boards, software and digital content.
Most of the online sales, he said, are in household appliances and electronics, computers and components. According to Gorshkov, InSales expects sales growth in the regions, as well as in such product categories as cosmetics and perfumes, children's and household goods, shoes and clothes. His opinion is confirmed by the study of the Public Opinion Foundation: in 2010, about 6 million Russians bought monthly goods on the Internet worth about 15 billion rubles.
