About This Statistic
This statistic depicts the sales of the leading 10 consumer electronics retailers of the United States in 2015 and 2016. In 2016, the leading consumer electronics retailer in the United States was Best Buy with sales that amounted to 31.16 billion U.S. dollars. Amazon’s decision to not just sell, but to manufacture and sell, CE is a type of diversification. Diversification, indeed, is a trend among the retailers this year. After decades as an e-tailer, Amazon in 2016 opened its first brick-and-mortar stores—bookstores in California, Oregon and Washington. In 2017, it plans additional stores for Illinois, Massachusetts, New York and New Jersey.
