GlobalDots have been at the forefront of website acceleration for many years and have secured many productive partnerships with the world’s leading online security providers. Now, we are bringing our expertise to China. The Great Firewall that screens and filters all content delivered from outside of China pushes many enterprises and content providers from around the globe to work with a local CDN operator from within China to accelerate their website speed.
Also, the number of web shoppers coming up from China is no longer something that can be easily disregarded, and it is expected to top the number of US web shoppers by more than 20 million by 2015. This is also when the number of internet users in China is predicted to soar to 750 million – not even half of the Chinese population.
Facing China’s Market Challenges
There are many technological, legal and geographical challenges when it comes to promoting e-commerce or any other kind of industries in China.
In order to overcome those more easily, vendors tend to rely on local talent and set up networks from within the region, using local nodes and servers. A local CDN operator can offer a dedicated platform with service, network, equipment and support team. Also, they will usually provide licenses (for any e-commerce site and for all internet content delivery within China, many licenses are required such as ICP, PSB, and more) and membership to information services, which together leads to a significant improvement of dynamic and static content access, security protection, help in obtaining more visitors to the web, complying with regulations and a serious reduction in costs for both your IT operations and site responsiveness improvements.
Take a look at the following numbers:
- China’s internet users are to reach 750 million by 2015
- This means 193 million online shoppers in comparison with 170 million in the US
- 6% of purchases are made online in China (in US: 4%)
- Increases in China’s internet economy rises by 64% year over year
- There are 6 major ISPs in China that have unstable peering
- All domains are monitored from within The Great Firewall
- 10-15 additional seconds that it takes to send content from outside of the Great Firewall equates to more than 38% site abandonment
Average download speed from US and EU hosted sites will be at least 8x slower than from China hosted sites, plus content providers are about to realize that they cannot reach the whole market with a single content delivery strategy. As we move towards the year 2017, the revenue for the CDN market in China and the Asia Pacific region is expected to grow by many billions of dollars, and China is inevitably the focus of huge interest from global CDN operators. Furthermore, the overall content delivery network market is expected to rise to $7.4 billion by 2017.
