Trends in the last 10 years

The interest in Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales over past 10 years

With a help of Google Trends, we verified the popularity of Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales in time, both globally and in the Philippines.

For ten years, the interest in Black Friday sales steadily increased. In comparison with Black Friday, Cyber Monday was marginalised in the last two years, probably because Black Friday’s time frame became blurry — it is not confined to Friday anymore.

Data for the Philippines shows that the peak of interest in both Black Friday and Cyber Monday fell on 2017. Although 2019 was not the best year in terms of Internet users’ activity, both events still receive Filipinos’ attention. Unfortunately, the pandemic and unstable situation in the labour market and the economy may cool off the interest of some shoppers.

On the other hand, on Cyber Monday the activity of shoppers was 16 per cent higher than the annual average.

Keeping in mind that sometimes Black Friday sales start as early as Monday, we checked how the sale looked day by day. The biggest activity was, obviously, noted on Friday — 18.4 per cent of the transactions made between November 25 and December 2 fell on this day. The Monday prior to Black Friday had the least number of purchases during the analysed period. In total, 2.8 per cent of all annual sales took place during the 8 days of sales.
