The biggest growth driver for Amazon has been the growth in mobile sales, which grew 25% in 2016, according to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.
According to Bezos, mobile sales were the biggest growth category in 2016.
Amazon has been able to make this growth largely by building its online retail business on the back of its Amazon Web Services platform, which allows it to scale up fast to meet demand.
In 2017, the company also built a new cloud service, Amazon Web App, that is able to provide faster online services.
In 2019, Amazon said it expects to be able to deliver an average of 1.2 billion items in 2018, compared to 1.0 billion in 2017.
But it has faced significant headwinds in its growth strategy, which has resulted in a loss of over $1 billion, or more than half its revenue, in 2017 alone.
The company announced in November that it will shutter the online grocery store it operates, the AmazonFresh, and will instead focus on building Amazon Prime, which will offer the same online shopping experience as its traditional store.
In December, Amazon announced it will be selling a new line of fitness trackers, the Alexa Track, for $249.99.
This could mean that the Amazon Echo, which Amazon acquired for $1.2 trillion, will no longer be available for purchase.
While Amazon is not able to build on its existing e-commerce business, it is able do a lot of things with its new platform, including allowing businesses to build out products in the Amazon Web Marketplace.
In 2018, Amazon also said it will build out a new digital store in 2019, called Amazon Prime.
However, Amazon is facing some major challenges in the space.
Amazon said in September that it is facing a $1,100,000 shortfall in 2019 for its e-sales, which is expected to result in a $150 million loss in the company’s first quarter.
And it is also facing a huge competition in the online retail space, which the company recently added to its lineup.
This year, Amazon posted its lowest first quarter profit since 2011, which was due to a decline in its Amazon.com retail business.
Also in 2018 , Amazon began offering Prime members free one-day shipping for purchases made on Amazon.
The company also announced it is launching Prime Music in 2018.
Amazon says Prime Music is the best way to listen to music in a timely manner.
Amazon’s Prime Music service offers Prime members access to Prime Music streaming, and Prime Music offers access to millions of songs from artists like Beyoncé, Eminem, and Justin Timberlake.
Despite these challenges, Bezos has continued to praise Amazon’s growth and believes that Amazon will be a $2 trillion company in 2020.
“Amazon’s growth has been so rapid and so impressive, and the fact that the growth continues unabated, and we are still growing faster than most, speaks volumes about how successful our business is,” Bezos said in a press release.
