Apparel appears poised to establish a commanding e-commerce lead.
Online sales of apparel, accessories and footwear are expected to continue to grow at double-digit levels for the next five years, allowing them to pull well ahead of computer hardware, software and peripherals, according to a forecast released Monday by Forrester Research Inc. The two broad categories led all others in U.S. online retail sales with $27.3 billion last year as apparel gained 17 percent and computer-related merchandise picked up 7 percent, a rate expected to drop further in the next half-decade.
