FAQ

Why is the Chinese market so popular?

China is the number 1 retail market in the world, with almost 1.4 billion people. Over the last decade Chinese consumption power has also been rising, so it provides a lot of opportunities for brands to address consumer needs. Apart from that, China’s digital landscape is very developed, so companies can access effective communication and sales channels together with rapid delivery services. Contact us to do China market research for your products. 

What kind of insights I will get after China market research?

With our help, you’ll understand whether there’s a demand for your product, how much potential consumers are willing to pay for it, how competitive the market is for your specific product, which regulations you need to be aware of, and more. Our team will also help you to validate your goals for the market. Contact us to learn more about our services. 

How do you plan market research?

We’ll schedule a call with your team to understand more about your products, whether you already have a presence in China and define your goals for the upcoming year. After that our team will prepare a plan covering market size, development history, key players, consumer overview (secondary data), market trends and market predictions. Contact us to get tailor-made plans for market research. 

Then we use sentiment analysis and interpretive approaches to convert the data into actionable insights.

What are the basic factors to consider in China market research?

The China market is not a single market. In reality, different regions and provinces have different needs and demands. There are also no one-size-fits-all situations or solutions. You should plan to put the strategy insights we uncover into action within 1-2 years, because the market changes rapidly and data can be outdated quickly. Contact us to find out more.
