Prepare for China
How is your Brand Perceived in the Chinese Market?
As a New Zealand business you must leverage the millions of dollars we as a nation have put in to Brand NZ and the 100% Pure campaign conducted all over the Globe, and especially in China. Brand NZ has helped build the foreign “good-will” and perception that everything from NZ is pure and natural with a high quality and that this is a safe place to buy products from.
The Chinese economy has been rapidly growing over recent years and this is something that cannot be ignored. China’s economy has adjusted from a centrally planned system of international trade to a global market-oriented approach. China will easily become the world’s largest economy with its current rapid growth and expansion efforts. Even now, the Chinese economy has acquired a major role in the world economy and will continue to do so in the future.
In China, the swiftly changing demographics, the rising incomes and the increase of consumerism has led to an attractively open business environment which many Western companies are increasingly becoming aware of. The Chinese market is one to keep an eye on. China is the second-largest world economy and has an unmatched growth in its gross domestic product. China is a major aspect of global value due to its role as a manufacturing hub and a centre of innovative research and development.
The failures that many companies have encountered in moving into the Chinese market are due to their approach of attacking the already well-established and highly-competitive markets, rather than the emerging niche markets. Chinese consumers are now becoming one of the most profitable niche markets. Due to the rise of the ‘nouveau-riche’ consumer, created by the rapid economic growth, consumer preferences have evolved from basic needs to a more sophisticated desire of luxury goods. Niche markets have exploded to cater for this new consumer with the growth of luxury health products, grooming schools, plastic surgery and luxury fashion goods.
