After years of remarkable growth, worldwide e-commerce revenue fell $250 billion year on year, from $3.84 trillion in 2021 to $3.59 trillion this year, a first for the sector, according to a study released on Monday.
According to data published by AugustaFreePress.com, supply chain concerns, inflation, increased digital advertising expenses, and shifting customer behavior all had a role in the first-ever e-commerce revenue loss.
According to the initial projection from the *Statista Digital Market Outlook*, sales would be $380 billion more in 2022 than it was a year ago.
However, the worldwide e-commerce revenue forecast has dropped from $4.22 trillion to $3.74 trillion as of July.
Despite accounting for roughly one-third of global e-commerce revenue in 2022, China*s largest market is concluding the year with a whopping $212 billion revenue decline. Other key markets, like Japan, the United Kingdom, and Germany, witnessed sales declines.
The United States, on the other hand, is the only one of the top five markets where e-commerce revenue climbed this year.

The overall market is predicted to earn $4.48 trillion in sales in 2023, rising to $5 trillion in 2024.
