Benefit from the changing e-commerce in China

October 15th, Beijing. China is at the front row when it comes to e-commerce. In recent years, the strong growth of the e-commerce market has gradually been curbing. With the in-depth development of e-commerce, the shortcomings of traditional e-commerce platforms have surfaced. What followed is the explosion of live streaming, combined with the emergence of a new generation of online and offline combined e-commerce models.

At first, livestream emerged on Taobao to increase the conversion rate of brands on the platform, similar to group buying and short video. As live broadcast brought good conversion effects, its priority has increased since then. 

Users of short video platforms are increasingly pursuing interesting content. The live entertainment industry with singing, dancing, chatting and rewarding as the main mode has entered a period of weakness, while shopping has become the main source of livestream users. In terms of consumption, as many as 51.6% of users click on third-party e-commerce platforms to shop, and 48.0% of users purchase goods in the platform’s built-in e-commerce possibilities. 

When the short video and content platforms entered the field of e-commerce, the traditional e-commerce platform faced greater challenges than ever. TikTok has launched its first shopping event, the 818 Shopping Festival, with a turnover of over RMB 8 billion (€1 billion). Kuaishou e-commerce announced the order volume in August has exceeded RMB 500 million (€64 million). Their order volume in the past 12 months was smaller only to TaobaoTmall, and Pinduoduo, ranking fourth. 

Livestream and short video platforms have changed the way consumers purchase. Influencers with a large fan base introduce tips for raising pets and share humorous videos of their pet to their followers, and this could also be a chance to place blind advertising. The most popular pet influencer on TikTok is a cat with 15.6 million fans. In the top 5 pet influencers, 3 are cats. The products these pet influencers promote are not limited to pet supplies, but also involve home appliances, human snacks and beverages.

CIPS offline trade show, the leading B2B platform in Asia, will be held on Nov 12-15 in Guangzhou.
