Research firm ComScore reported that online sales of consumer electronics and PC products grew at least 15 percent year over year.

The total US e-commerce sales of the three month period of the second quarter show a 14 percent growth, which represents an estimated $37.5 billion, which is good news for the consumer electronics industry.

"The second quarter of 2011 saw a continuation of this year's solid double-digit growth trends in online spending well ahead of the rate of growth in consumers' overall spending," said ComScore chairman Gian Fulgone. "As a result, it's clear that consumers are continuing to shift to the online channel, with almost $1 in every $10 of discretionary spending now occurring online."
