Ecommerce in China:Powered by Govt Subsidized Cheap Broadband, and rising 800 million middle class

Ecommerce in China: How the World's Biggest Market Buys Online: "China has an estimated 193 million online shoppers, more than any other country. By 2015, those consumers will be spending $1,000 per year online — the same amount that U.S.'s 170 million online shoppers currently spend annually. By that time, ecommerce could account for more than 8% of all retail sales in China, Boston Consulting Group predicts.

A number of factors are driving the growth. One is the increase of China's middle class, which is expected to balloon from 200 million to 800 million people over the next 20 years, according to Acquity Group. The spread of government-subsidized, high-speed Internet access and Internet-connected cellphones have widened the pool of potential shoppers to 513 million — or about 40% of the population. Broadband Internet access costs around $10 per month, compared to $30 per month in India and $27 per month in Brazil."

Mobile Makes Its Mark on Worldwide Facebook Ad Spend - eMarketer: Facebook’s mobile push in 2012 was considerable—from both a user and advertiser perspective—after initial weakness on the devices led to doubts about the social giant’s strength.

But Facebook’s turnaround has been fast, and the concerted effort, one year in, has already made a notable impact on the way the social network earns its worldwide ad revenues.Android received the bulk of Facebook ad spend, at 71%, while on tablets, nearly all Facebook mobile advertising revenues went to iOS devices. This parallels Android’s dominance in the worldwide smartphone market, while Apple’s iPad remains the tablet standard-bearer.

Digital software marketing firm Kenshoo Social looked at its clients’ advertising allocations on Facebook. Businesses served came from a range of verticals around the world, including retail, financial services, entertainment and travel. The digital marketing firm found that already, in December 2012, one in five advertiser dollars on Facebook went to mobile.

U.S. mobile ad spending nearly doubled in the first half of this year to $1.24 billion, according to the most recent data from the Interactive Advertising Bureau. However, mobile still only represented 7% of total online ad spending for that time period.

Global B2b e-commerce to exceed $1.25 trillion, China to grow at 130%

Global business-to-consumer e-commerce sales will pass the 1 trillion euro ($1.25 trillion) mark by 2013, and the total number of Internet users will increase to approximately 3.5 billion from around 2.2 billion at the end of 2011, according to a new report by the Interactive Media in Retail Group (IMRG), a U.K. online retail trade organization.

The study estimates that business-to-consumer e-commerce sales in 2011 increased to 690 billion euros ($961 billion), an increase of close to 20% from a year earlier.
The United States remains the world’s single biggest e-commerce market, IMRG says, followed by the United Kingdom and Japan.

IMRG estimates that growth rates in those countries will be approximately 10-15% a year.  But with China’s e-commerce sales growing more than 130% in 2011, it is only a matter of time before the Asian giant becomes the single largest market in the world.

3rd party Mobile Apps vs Instore Retail App: Which Drives Sales Conversions

According to newly-released report  from Microsoft, “Mobile in the Consumer Journey,” finds that one-third of average consumers use their mobile phones to compare grocery prices, both in-store and during planning, a figure that rises to 71% among savvy smartphone users.
Mobile Applications Drive Sales Conversions
37% of smartphone owners who used a smartphone on their last shopping trip used a 3rd-party mobile shopping application, and 34% used a retailer’s dedicated app. Conversion rate in stores among shoppers using a retailer’s dedicated app was 85%, fully 21% points higher than those who did not (64%). 
The challenge is that those 37% using a 3rd party application often link to price comparison tools or deal finders, suggesting that dedicated apps are necessary to combat “showrooming,” the practice by consumers of using a retailer to see a product which they purchase elsewhere.

US Technology Shift 2012 and Beyond:Top 3 trends

2012 will be about curating, filtering and measuring that information to drive outcomes.The revolution will be televised, streamed, shared, tweeted, linked, posted, blogged, aggregated, curated, scanned…and measured. More than ever, marketers and retailers are under pressure to show that online, mobile and social media advertising provide a good return on investment.

Smartphone  other tablet computers
The number of iPad users in the US will rise by over 90% in 2012 to 53.2 million, as loyal users replace older models and new consumers purchase the device, according to eMarketer.

That level of growth is down significantly from last year's 143.9% jump, and will continue to decline; by 2015, the number of iPad users will rise by just under 12%. By then, more than one-third of all US internet users will have such a device.

US iPad users, 2010-2015:

- 2010: 11.5 million
- 2011: 28.0 million (+143.9%)
- 2012: 53.2 million (+90.1%)
- 2013: 70.5 million (+32.6%)
- 2014: 81.1 million (+15.1%)
- 2015: 90.8 million (+11.9%)

Compared to iPads, overall tablet penetration is rising more quickly and will reach 29.1% of internet users by the end of this year, but growth will still fall off to 11.9% by 2015.

In 2012, the iPad will continue to be in the hands of more than three-quarters (76.4%) of all tablet users in the country, but by 2015 the percentage is expected to fall down to 68.0%.
