Synopsis: From 2002 to 2012, Internet users in China grew at a CAGR of 25.31% from 59.1 million users in 2002 to 564.0 million users in 2012. The strong growth is accompanied by the substantial increase in Internet penetration rate from 4.6% in 2002 to 42.1% in 2012. Within the Internet space, ecommerce and mobile commerce (m-commerce) are likely to show the strongest growth in 2013, increasing from the US$203.8 billion market in 2012 at an estimated CAGR of 30.8% through 2016. In addition to ecommerce and m-commerce, social media, micro-blog (Weibo), and online travel are some other areas we believe will exhibit strong growth. This report outlines the China Internet space and briefly mentions the major players in the market.
