Description

About China Parcels Market: Market Insight Report 2018

 

Background to the report

China’s economy continues to perform strongly as the country has urbanised and the new middle classes have embraced consumption.

In this context, online retail has grown rapidly, having quadrupled since 2012 to the point where China now accounts for over half of the global total.

China’s parcels market has expanded rapidly to deliver this enormous retail volume as well as growth in demand from the B2B segment.
– China accounted for almost half of the total global growth in the parcels market in 2017. The chart shows how it has grown much faster than other leading markets.
