About the market (May 2021)

China achieved more than 2% growth in its economy in 2020, with the final quarter – up to 6.5% growth YoY.

Market Asia About the market (May 2021)

According to official figures, online sales of consumer goods have risen by over 14%. In 2021, China was targeting GDP growth of more than 6%.

E-commerce has come a long way in China in a decade, and Chinese online shoppers should be considered amongst the most sophisticated globally. The online spend per customer average of US$1.276 makes Chinese customers as valuable as those in the West.

However, unlike Western economies, there are many people who are yet to gain internet access. For this reason, it is expected to note significant online sales growth as the rest of the population comes online. In addition – those, who already shop online – keeps buying more.

Chinese e-commerce is dominated by Alibaba (with its Tmall, Tmall Global, and Taobao), JD.com, and Pinduoduo. Western brands focus their marketplace presence on Tmall and JD.com. At the same time, Pinduoduo has taken market share by selling cheaper items to consumers who are newer to e-commerce in China’s smaller cities.

Many Chinese consumers primarily or only access the internet on mobile devices. Both Tmall and JD.com report high usage of their mobile apps. Pinduoduo has taken this a step further – the marketplace is mobile-app only. Marketing strategies for China also need to consider the bias towards mobile apps – and should include WeChat, Douyin (the Chinese version of Tiktok), and, for premium brands selling cross-border, social shopping site RED.
