.IE Tipping Point Report 2022
We are delighted to publish the .IE Tipping Point Report 2022, Irish e-commerce and digital business in the post-Covid era in partnership with Digital Business Ireland. This is the third and final part of a trilogy of research that has examined consumer and SME attitudes and adaptations to the pandemic over the past two years.
Our research demonstrates that a tipping point has indeed been passed. This report shows that consumers have fully embraced the convenience of online shopping; in response, most SMEs have been forced to adapt, digitally and increasingly attitudinally, transforming their static brochure websites into e-commerce hubs and planning investment in their online stores.
