Launching tomorrow, we will be unveiling a fascinating new piece of research focusing on the fastest growing segment of the North’s tech sector: ecommerce.

The Prolific North Top 100 eCommerce Companies in the North is jointly sponsored by Knight Corporate Finance and Barclays, with research compiled in association with Knight.

It will, for the first time, identify the leading ecommerce companies in the region, ranked by revenue.

Ecommerce in the UK as a whole was worth £133bn last year, a growth of 16% compared to 2015, with a further 14% growth predicted for 2017 (IMRG Capgemini eRetail Sales Index).

The North is certainly playing its part in this trend, with some of the UK’s largest pure-play ecommerce companies now based predominantly in the region.

Our Top 100 will seek to provide a benchmark overview to the sector in the North with what we hope will be another fascinating piece of research.

It follows our other ground-breaking research features, which include the Top 50 Digital Agencies, the Top 50 Integrated Agencies and the Top In-house Communicators.
