The Census Bureau of the Department of Commerce recently announced that the estimate of U.S. retail e-commerce sales for the second quarter of 2005, adjusted for seasonal variation and holiday and trading-day differences, but not for price changes, was $21.1 billion, or 2.2 percent of total sales.

Leadpile reports that the recent focus on America’s aging population has blinded many experts from seeing the explosive growth that the “next generation” of “Younger Super Internet Consumers” will bring to e-commerce.

Andy Jacob, CEO of says, “We are the first company to say $1 trillion in e-commerce sales while keeping a straight face,” Jacob says. “While America’s aging population has many economists making bold predictions regarding social security and health care, we prefer to talk about the next wave of 'Younger Super Internet Consumers' who will push e-commerce sales into 'another planet altogether.'"

Jacob says that e-commerce sales have the potential to make up 25% of all sales in the United States by 2012. Jacob says, “The convergence of the aging baby boom population and the new 'Younger Super Internet Consume' will make for an explosive combination in the next seven years.”

Jacob says, “Twenty percent of the U.S. population is under the age of 14-years-old. They represent a portion of the next phase of 'Younger Super Internet Consumer,' and they will be unlike any consumer in U.S. history. This 'Younger Super Internet Consumer' will use the Internet in every facet of their life pushing Internet sales to levels most people are not able to believe."
