Roy Morgan Research CEO Michele Levine presented the latest State of the Nation Report on 24 November 2015, with a special Spotlight on Retail. The report shows that Australians spent more than $A100bn on consumer goods in the 2014-15 financial year, which is five per cent higher than previously. The report also shows that Australians’ online expenditure rose by 9.7 per cent in 2014-15, to $A37.8bn, while an estimated 72 per cent of online expenditure (or about $A27bn) is on Australian online-only sites or the internet offerings of local retailers. Michele Levine says today’s shoppers want (and expect) it all, and to be able to get it by whatever device or channel suits them best, and Australia’s most successful retailers are those that can supply the demand from all angles.
