11 Online retailing in China, 2013 Men shop as much as women, if not more. According to iresearch, male consumers accounted for 52.3% of the total number of online shoppers in While the online shopping market in China is still largely dominated by young consumers, the seniors segment is catching up fast and presents huge opportunities. Boston Consulting Group 6 put the Internet penetration rate of seniors (aged 51 and over) in China at 20% in 2011, with anticipated growth at 22% per annum from 2011 to active middle-aged user. So, the huge growth potential of the seniors market cannot be users aged 50 and above. Senior citizens in Shanghai are the most frequent shoppers, followed by those in Beijing and Guangzhou. Chinese consumers shop more frequently online than overseas peers A survey conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers 7 shows that the online shopping frequency of Chinese consumers is four times that of their European counterparts in the Netherlands, France and Switzerland, and nearly twice that of consumers in the United States and the United Kingdom.

However, thanks to ongoing urbanisation and rising incomes, online consumption in lower tier cities is growing fast. Although consumers in tier 3 and 4 cities spend less online compared with their counterparts in tier 1 and 2 cities, online spending accounts for a higher share of their total disposable income (see Exhibit 7).

13 Online retailing in China, 2013 Apparel, bags and accessories remain the most popular category sold online, while kids products are getting more attention According to iresearch, apparel, bags and accessories constituted the most popular online retail category in 2012, with a market share of 26.5%.

Eyeing the huge potential of the booming kids market, some online retailers have already stepped into that segment. Recent examples include: In December 2012, Gome signed a 1 billion yuan cooperation deal with Qinqin Baby, a vertical online retailer for kids and babies products, nursing and maternity wear and necessities, to launch a new mummy and babies category 10. In September 2012, Suning acquired Redbaby, China s largest online maternity and baby products retailer, to enter the maternity and babies products market 11.

15 Online retailing in China, 2013 C2C segment represents a dominant market share, yet B2C segment is expanding quickly Currently, the C2C segment still represents the largest segment of China s online retailing market. But the B2C segment is becoming increasingly important. In 2012, the C2C and the B2C segment were expected to account for 70.3% and 25.3% respectively of growth in transaction value in 2012, with a growth rate of 95.1%. It is expected that the C2C and the B2C segment will each account for half the share of China s online retailing market in 2016 (see Exhibit 9).

17 Online retailing in China, 2013 B2C market is more fragmented and competition is fierce e-commerce market. Retailers in the B2C segment can be largely classified in three groups: (1) pure-click retailers such as Vancl, Moonbasa; (2) multi-channel B2C retailers supported by a huge offline store network such as Suning; and (3) B2C open platform players are integrated online platforms selling a large variety of goods (see Exhibit 11). Exhibit 11: Market share of B2C market, 2012 Source: iresearch Foreign players secure a foothold in China, while some China retailers seek to go global China s lucrative e-commerce market has proven to be irresistible to Western retailers. Many overseas players are eager to secure a lucrative foothold in the market and have set ambitious development goals.!&

18 British online fashion retailer ASOS, for instance, is to open a Chinese-language website in October 2013; it is reportedly to spend between 12 million and 18 million over the set up a dedicated distribution hub in China. Another example is Macy s Inc., the leading department store operator in the United Co, one of China s leading online retailers of global luxury brands. Macy s will start business model is to be revamped to become the official distribution channel for Macy s Inc. While foreign players are pushing to tap China s online market, some Chinese retailers are using the online channel to go global. Amazon China launched a Global Store Opening Scheme in early 2012, which allows suppliers to reach overseas customers 13. Suppliers can place their products in Amazon s operating centre, and once there is an English website (http://en.jd.com/) in late 2012 to allow its suppliers to sell their products in overseas markets rd_s=center-1&pf_rd_r=1z68k8m1eccg7h49se2m&pf_rd_t=2701&pf_rd_p= &pf_rd_i=home

20 More B2C players operate as open platforms Competition in the B2C segment is highly competitive, so many B2C retailers are transforming themselves into open platforms in order to expand their business scope and 12 shows some of the major B2C players that operate on open platforms.

So, B2C players can expand product categories without the need to make significant investments. However, players have to consider the tradeoffs when opening their platforms to other online tenants. Conflicts can arise when allocating limited resources, such as page space to self-operated brands and third-party brands

21 Online retailing in China, 2013 Online retailers enrich product offerings Many online retailers have been actively increasing their product offerings by either adding new categories or partnering with other brands on their open platforms. Reasons for expanding product offerings are threefold: (1) to enhance consumers stickiness and cross-selling opportunities; (2) to improve overall margins and turnover; and (3) to expand market share. Recent examples of online retailers expanding product categories include: variations of groceries, including packaged foods, beverages and snacks. Vancl, a B2C clothing website, opened an open platform in April Other apparel and shoe companies can set up stores on its open platform.

22 Price competition is common is it sustainable? Competing on price to build market share remains the number one marketing strategy in China s online retail market, as most Chinese consumers are still largely price sensitive. Many retailers have tried to squeeze out others and increase market share by adopting a low-price strategy. earning large profits from consumers. Gome and Suning followed suit by cutting their Development and Reform Commission stepped in and investigated. operators. Many lack the scale and resources to provide a wide range of products and efficient logistics, and they are also less competitive in terms of pricing and reputation. So, for these smaller players, focusing in a specific category may help them to secure a foothold in the market. It seems that they should actively seek ways to differentiate themselves from other competitors. Boundaries between online and physical channels are blurring but seamless integration is the final goal Integration of online and physical channels is gaining more attention. In the customercentric digital era, more brick-and-mortar stores are launching their online channels, while online retailers are evolving from selling purely on the Internet to having a physical presence. According to the China Chain Store & Franchise Association (CCFA), 62 of the top 100 retail chains in the country opened online stores in 2012 (see Exhibit 14), up from 31 in Other businesses such as banks and logistic companies are also actively seeking different products or services.

For instance, Moonbasa, a Chinese online apparel retailer, has gone beyond a relaxing shopping experience for customers, a café is located in the store 22. Suning is another good example, showing how retailers are integrating their online and offline channels. In February 2013, Suning announced the change of the company s name from Suning Appliance Co., Ltd to Suning Commerce Group Co., Ltd, emphatically ending its time in specialised electronic appliances and starting its business transformation. e-commerce, plus retail service provider. 23 Suning has completed the integration of its online and offline business divisions for procurement, logistics and product management. Sales are now generated from various points-of-sales (POS), including its physical stores, focus more on elevating the customer experience such as providing exceptional aftersales and delivery services and include setting up an exhibition/show room. Suning will set up an online shopping counter in its offline stores for customers to pick up the products they purchase online, return the products or receive a refund acid:3253 model:forced "$

26 Ideally, the integration of online and offline channels can allow different business units to work under the same umbrella that can share the same pricing system, inventory, logistics and after-sales services. But in reality, it is not always the case. For many retailers, their online and offline channels are operated by different teams, resulting in conflicts over online and offline operations. Developing social media and digital marketing reshapes the online retail landscape SNS websites to promote products and generate sales is especially the case in China as shoppers generally engage more actively with social media than their overseas counterparts. According to the aforementioned PWC survey, 57% of surveyed respondents follow brands or retailers on social media, compared to 38% in the global sample. encourage more customers to purchase goods. Many bricks retailers as well as B2C operators have tried to leverage the huge user databases in SNS websites to promote their products and enhance profitability. Sina Weibo, with more than 500 million registered users, is one of the most popular SNS websites in China. Exhibit 15 shows the number of followers of selected major B2C operators on Sina Exhibit 15: Number of followers of selected B2C operators on Sina Weibo B2C operator Number of fans Dangdang 2,085,806 Lefeng 1,494,673 Huaqiangbei shang cheng 325,397 Damai.cn 792,981 Vipshop 1,385,900 Note: As of May 13, 2013 Source: Sina Weibo; compiled by Fung Business Intelligence Centre "%

27 Online retailing in China, 2013 Aside from using Sina Weibo as a marketing tool, some companies have started to sell via the micro-blogging website. China phonemaker Xiaomi was the first to partner with Sina Weibo to sell 50,000 units of its Mi2 smartphone directly via the Sina Weibo platform in December Payment is made through its own online payment service WeiboPay. Xiaomi has reportedly generated around 1.3 million reservations on its way to selling the allotted 50,000 Mi2 phones in just five minutes. Social forum to share shopping experience Chinese consumers are heavily influenced by friends and experts when making their purchasing decisions. Social media not only serves as a marketing and advertising channel, but also acts as a platform to share product information and shopping experiences. Examples of social forums that allow consumers to share their online shopping experiences and comment on products they buy online include Meilishuo and Mogujie. Mobile apps and communication service tools to reach consumers Many retailers have launched mobile apps or communication service tools to reach out dining and entertainment, is a case in point. It is one of the pioneers to partner with Wechat to do marketing campaigns. Wechat is a popular mobile phone text and voice Shift from pricing to services: efficient logistics is a key differentiator Many online players have realised that aggressive pricing strategies are not sustainable and have started to focus on services to differentiate themselves from others players. Some have set up their own warehousing and logistics systems, and provide same-day delivery guarantees and other after-sales services to enhance user experiences. intelligent warehousing innovation, an extensive logistics network and a multi-channel customer experience greatly improved, with 92% of customers satisfied with its delivery service "&

28 under trial operation in Beijing buy has also sought to improve delivery services by offering deliveries three times a day, starting from the end of last year 27. Other players have partnered with convenience stores or metro companies to provide self-service facilities at convenience stores or metro stations. For instance, Amazon China has teamed up with Family Mart to provide a self-pick-up service in Shanghai starting from last March. E-commerce players embark on M&A Both vertical and horizontal mergers and acquisitions (M&A) in China s online retailing market are common. For some traditional retailers, acquiring players that already exist in the market provide a quick way to enter the online retail market. A significant case is the acquisition of Coo8 by Gome in Since then, many others have followed suit. Some online players use the M&A route to expand product categories or their scope of services. For instance, Suning acquired Redbaby to enter the babies products market, Exhibit 16 shows some of the major M&A cases last year and this, involving e-commerce players. China s online market is still very fragmented and there is a vast opportunity inherent in market consolidation. Ahead, it is expected that more retailers will use the M&A route to expand their market presence in China "'
