China represents one of the most significant global ecommerce markets. It is growing domestically and attracting the attention of sellers from across the world, while its consumers shop in unique ways not yet found in Western markets.

The combination of its large population (1.4 billion), impressive GDP growth and hunger for ecommerce – both domestic and international – make China a fascinating market to keep an eye on.It is a country playing catch-up with more developed markets, yet simultaneously acting as an outlier to where those same markets go next.

In the report we discover that China is an increasingly technology-driven economy, due to its wealth of young people aged 24-45, who make up almost half of the total population. We also look at the changes for ecommerce on China’s Single’s Day, a shopping festival which takes place around November 11 each year and has become a fixture of peak season for retailers worldwide. 

So – how will this unique market evolve? Has Covid-19 changed the way Chinese consumers’ shopping habits? Are these consumers interested in cross-border retail outlets?
