Austria boasts a highly digitised society with internet penetration reached an impressive 88.5% in 2023. This translates to 7.9 million internet users, with a projected increase to 8.2 million by 2028. While internet accessibility is nearly ubiquitous, a slight growth of 0.7% is expected over the next few years, suggesting potential efforts to bridge the remaining digital divide.

E-commerce flourishes in Austria, with 62% of the population being online shoppers in 2023. This strong preference for online retail indicates a robust e-commerce ecosystem that is likely to thrive alongside rising internet penetration.

Social media is likely a dominant online activity, although the data doesn't explicitly mention it. However, the high internet user base and the fact that 76% of the population used e-government services in 2023 point towards a population comfortable with online interactions and transactions. Further underlining this, Austrians spend a significant amount of time online, averaging 5 hours and 31 minutes daily in 2023. This extensive internet usage reinforces the central role digital activities play in everyday life for Austrians.
