Online shopping for consumer electronics (CE) products is gaining in popularity according to The Demographics of Online vs. In-Person CE Shopping, a recent study by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA).

According to the study, while an average of 5 percent of all consumer electronics purchases are made online, certain product categories -- including personal computing, digital cameras, wireless home networking devices, and portable music players -- each sell more than 10 percent of product through online channels.

According to more than 1,000 U.S. adults surveyed by CEA, online CE shoppers report higher satisfaction with the purchase process than those who visited retail locations, citing convenience, order accuracy, product variety, product availability, and product information among the top reasons.

"CE devices today are found in more American homes than are automobiles," said Joe Bates, director of research at CEA. "CE products have become ubiquitous, and play a key role in almost every aspect of our lives. As a result, consumers will naturally gravitate towards a convenient means of purchase that makes them feel as though they have made a fair, well-informed decision in a setting that is easy to reach and work with."

The CEA survey also found that consumers who buy at least some of their CE products online spend 67 percent more each year than those who do not make any CE purchases online. On average, the online buyer spent U.S. $1,500 on CE purchases, with 29 percent of that spent over the Internet.
