This means that for Singaporeans, digital commerce remains important and more digital consumers are embracing omnichannel.

However, the report also noticed that offline channel purchases are increasing. On average, online purchases in Singapore declined by 10% in 2022 compared to 2021, suggesting a resurgence of offline buys.

Meanwhile, 13% of Singapore respondents have switched at least one of their purchased categories from online to offline channels.
