Criteo (NASDAQ: CRTO), the advertising platform for the open Internet, today released seasonal data in anticipation of Diwali, to help e-commerce companies and online retailers better understand the buying behaviour of their customers during the festive season. The seasonal data, based on consumers’ online browsing and buying behaviour during the peak season last year (17th September – 18th October 2017) which was the pre-Diwali period, revealed that the highest sales peak and website traffic was witnessed a month before Diwali. Retail sales from mobile web in the weeks leading to Diwali last year saw an increase of 128%.


As the major ecommerce players in India ride on the growing popularity of online shopping, festive season has become a period of significant importance. Almost every ecommerce player in the ecosystem launches mega-sales during the festive season as consumers look to explore thousands of brands online and spend their disposable income. There is a brand war with high budget spending on advertisements as well as sales offers on consumer products and services.


According to Criteo’s findings, which are based on an analysis of 90 million retail shopping transactions made in India last year, hike in sales reached up to 128%, while the increase in visitors was seen rising to a maximum level of 65%, compared to the average weekly sales during March 12-18, 2017.
