SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Jan. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- adhesive.co saw significant growth during 2013, expanding to include 10,000-plus merchants by the end of the year. This growth is in direct relation to the need for ecommerce merchants to compete against Amazon effectively, and drive new customers to their websites. In fact, Amazon might be the only true competition for today's ecommerce companies.
In 2013, ecommerce grew to $419 billion in North America and $1.2 trillion worldwide according to eMarketer. By 2016, those numbers are expected to exceed $580 billion and $1.8 trillion respectively. This rapidly expanding market sees considerable competition – ecommerce providers are competing against each other, but more importantly, they're battling against online giant Amazon. In order to drive new traffic, ecommerce companies need new solutions, which is exactly what adhesive.co provides.
