Why Sell into China?

China’s economy is the second-largest globally and is on track to become number one by 2030. Given its vast population of 1.4 billion, rapidly growing middle class and loosening economic restrictions, China is one of the most lucrative international markets in which to conduct business. While the conditions within China are attractive, there are some significant political and cultural challenges of which to be aware (differences in business culture, language and the sheer number of actions involved with business startup and regulatory compliance). Additionally, China’s ongoing trade war with the U.S. has injected a considerable amount of uncertainty.

44% of global ecommerce is owned by four Chinese companies. A growing trend reflects that retail in China is much more digital than Europe or North America. Most of this revenue comes from marketplaces that enable transactions between buyers and sellers for products that the retailers may never physically touch.
