Poland has become Europe's fifth-biggest e-commerce market, ahead of, among others, Italy or Spain, according to a report by British research firm ResearchFarm, quoted by the Rzeczpospolita daily. Overall, Poles spent EUR 3.3bn on e-commerce in 2011 and the firm expects this figure to rise to EUR 5.9bn in 2015. It forecasts even faster growth once the use of internet becomes more widespread in Poland: last year, 52.4% of Poles used the internet compared to 70% of population in France and 80% in Germany. tom
