He pointed out that companies such as ASOS.com, eBay, Amazon and Play.com are "major success stories" and "bricks and mortar retailers" are also expanding into this market.
"Huge technological advancement" has occurred in this area due to customer demand, he said.
"That is where the consumer is and these are the platforms where the consumer wants to shop," the expert declared.
Mr Sillitoe concluded that "people working within e-commerce and the e-tail sector are particularly content" as they see it performing well in the future.
