The rise of voice commerce.
Rapid consumer adoption of smart speakers, combined with a growing tendency to use such devices for shopping, suggests that voice commerce (voice-based eCommerce) will be the next major disruptive force in retail.
OC&C estimates that $40bn will be spent through voice commerce by 2022 in the US, representing 6% of online spend.
This is clearly a channel that retailers and consumer goods companies would do well to consider seriously.
