2014 saw somefantastic changes for both Export Now and China e-commerce in general. China e-commerce in 2014 we saw the number of online shoppers grow by 19%, and B2C sales increase by 60%. Predictions for 2015 have the number of online shoppers increasing by over 16%, and B2C sales increasing by over 30%, making China e-commerce sales 20% larger than the U.S. market is forecast to generate.
China now has over 600 million internet users, and the government is working vigorously on their goal of reaching 1.2 billion by 2020. That’s the equivalent of adding “an entire population of Mexico” to the Internet every year for the next 5 years.
By 2015, it is estimated that up to 44% of China’s urban population will shop online – nearly double the rate found in 2010.For Export Now, 2014 saw the addition of many fantastic clients, including Guitar Center, Speck, and Crucial, amongst others. Considering the growth the China market is expected to have this year, we are exceptionally excited about the new companies companies that will leverage China’s e-commerce market to grow their international sales.
