The New York Times stirred up a bit of controversy today by publishing an article claiming that the eCommerce industry is slowing down. Referring to the current state of online sales as â€œthe Dot Calm Era,â€ the article uses current trends, research statistics and even word-of-mouth to back this theory.
â€œGrowth in online sales has also dropped dramatically in diverse categories like health and beauty products, computer peripherals and pet supplies,â€ the article states. â€œAnalysts say it is a turning point and growth will continue to slow through the decade.â€
