The World's Largest E-commerce Market
E-commerce is booming in China
China is one of the fastest growing e-commerce markets in the world. The e-tailing industry there has posted an average annual growth of over 20% for the last decade, and online sales in China are expected to top USD $1 trillion by 2019, around double forecasted sales in the U.S.
Foreign brands have a strong appeal to Chinese consumers
Starbucks China grew from 250 stores in 2009 to around 2,500 in 2016, and plans to have 5,000 stores by 2021. Buick sold nearly 1.2 million cars in China in 2016, representing 75% of its global sales Around 50% of China’s cosmetic sales come from international brands.
E-commerce in China is dominated by marketplaces
In North America and Europe, standalone e-stores (e.g., Nike.com) still make up a significant portion of e-commerce sales. But in China, nearly 90% of online transactions take place on marketplaces such as Tmall and JD. We understand how these platforms operate and how consumers interact on them, enabling our clients to out-perform the tens of thousands of brands they compete with.
Over the past ten years, China's e-tailing industry has posted an average annual growth rate of over 20%.
