Devices used to access the website

Over the last decade our website analytics have identified a shift from visitors solely accessing the website by a desktop, to visitors choosing to browse by a mobile or tablet device.

In 2008 100% of all visitors to our website were browsing on a desktop. Yet, in 2013 this number had dropped to 69.9​%, with mobile and tablet visitors accounting for 30.2% .

We expect the percentage of mobile users browsing the website to grow further which is a key reason why we aim to make all our website content mobile responsive.
