Amazon accounts for over a fifth of the UK's entertainment retail market

"Amazon now accounts for a fifth of the UK entertainment retail market, according to the latest stats from Kantar Worldpanel. As previously reported, according to the retail stats, Amazon overtook HMV as the country’s biggest entertainment retailer late last year, though in spring the two firms were more or less neck and neck.
But, according to the latest stats, Amazon has now grown its market share by 3.2% year on year, meaning it now accounts for 21.1% of entertainment product sales, giving it quite a lead over HMV, which now accounts for 16.6% of sales, down from 17.4% in the same period a year earlier."
