An insight into the Chinese ecommerce market for Singles Day

China is set to become the world’s largest online retail market, having enjoyed explosive growth in the last few years. The market is mainly powered by China’s 302m online shoppers, incidentally the world’s most active online purchasers.

Much of the Chinese ecommerce industry's explosive growth is attributed to the unique landscape in itself. The market value of ecommerce is largely derived from the weak offline retail sector, and online retail has provided consumers with a much needed alternative way of shopping.

Econsultancy's new State of Ecommerce in China report, published in partnership with hybris, an SAP company, looks in more detail at this market.

To focus on the potential the Chinese ecommerce industry has, I’ve decided to share a few snippets from the report. Not to forget it's Singles Day, the largest online shopping day in the world. Enough said.

What's happening in cross-border ecommerce?

Ecommerce continues to grow, increasing by around 10%, 2013 to 2014.

Part of this growth is due to the continuing emergence of APAC, specifically China. This has created what PayPal calls 'new spice routes' with countries trading cross-border when it comes to ecommerce.

I've done a bit of a literature review to bring myself up to speed on how international ecommerce is changing. I hope you find it informative.

China: from WeChat mcommerce to experiential nuts

It's hard to get one's head around China. The scale and the speed are vast and fast.

So, I thought I'd round up some companies doing interesting things online in China, just to give a snapshot of marketing in the country.

Full credit where it's due, these are all taken from Barney Loehnis' presentation (he's head of digital in APAC for Ogilvy & Mather) at the Future of Digital Marketing 2014.
