    Amazon captures nearly half of all e-commerce sales, report says

    Amazon is quickly leaving behind every other retailer hoping for a future in e-commerce.  New research out Friday from eMarketer, a research firm specializing in data in the digital marketplace, shows Amazon with a staggering — and likely insurmountable — lead over every other major retailer trying to compete online. The research predicts Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) will capture a whopping 49.1 percent of all e-commerce sales in 2018. Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) is in third place with just 3.9 percent, followed by Walmart (NYSE: WMT) at 3.7 percent.  The bottom six retailers in the top 10 in online sales — Home Depot (NYSE: HD), Best Buy (NYSE: BBY), QVC Group, Macy’s (NYSE: M), Costco (NASDAQ: COST) and Wayfair (NYSE: W) — all are predicted to capture between 1.1 and 1.5 percent of total online sales this year.
