Ecommerce stats by category

I was scouring the net for some solid e-commerce stats the other day and found the US-census bureau had some stats from 2008. Even though the total numbers are different the niches that make the most money won't change that much. Here's some points I gathered. If you want to check out the actual stats the pdf is here. If you are confused as what niche you can make money in; all of these niches have been proven to be making money. I would start here and find subniches in each then expand. If you want to see which countries spend the most online check out this pdf from neilsen.http://th.nielsen.com/site/documents/GlobalOnlineShoppingReportFeb08.pdf.  You also have to take into consideration how many people actually use the net. There is a report for it  here.
