Unique Visitors Ranking: What is the Role of E-Commerce Sites in LatAm and U.S. Hispanic Market?

Research

We made an analysis of the Top 20 Most visited sites in the U.S Hispanic and LatAm Markets, according to ComScore. In both rankings, there are several  e-commerce platforms, which is interesting, because it shows how relevant these sites are for users in both regions. But there are differences in the relative weight of these sites in the U.S. Hispanic and Latin American markets.

Comercio Electrónico While it is no news that e-commerce has developed rapidly in the U.S., the fact that in the U.S. Hispanic ranking there are 4 e-commerce related companies (Amazon, eBay, Wal-Mart and Craigslist, although the latter is more classified-oriented) reflects a stronger presence of e-commerce sites in the U.S. Hispanic market when compared to Latin America (where there are only two E-commerce sites among the top twenty sites ranked by unique users, see below).

In Latin America, it is interesting to note how Mercado Libre and OLX are part of the Top 20 Most Visited sites by Unique Visitors.
