Now, as mentioned, online purchases have been a growing trend lately, with many retailers such as Wal-mart trying to come up with new online shopping offerings to compete with Amazon. Amazon has become a giant in the online shopping industry, with the founder Jeff Bezos recently beating Bill Gates as the world's richest man (albeit only briefly).

A survey conducted back in 2016 shows that consumers are conducting more of their shopping online, with 51% of shoppers buying online than in stores, and 44% of those buying stuff did it with their smartphones.


Further studies show that 62% of consumers in the US with access to the internet shop online at least once a month. Many like to use coupons or will wait for an incentive or promotion from a brand before buying. Interestingly, the majority of items bought online have been electronics, books, and clothing (each over 60%), with sporting goods, pet supplies, and food/groceries coming in least (20% each).


So, based on these numbers, it's probably a safe bet to say that many of the trending gadgets that have been released lately have probably been purchased online, if not from Amazon then probably some other online site.
