Standout figures

  • Desktop brought more than half of searches and also had the highest conversion rate.
  • Mobile searches amounted to almost 30% of all searches but had the lowest conversion rate - this could indicate that although most purchases are made on desktop, the search often begins on mobile devices and thus responsive websites with a solid UX are crucial to B2B success.
  • Although tablet only brought 6.9% of users to B2B websites, it converted higher than mobile.
