The platform effect:
Rise of the marketplace
economy in Asia Pacific
This study was conducted online by Nielsen in January
2018 among 1,000+ adults, 18 and older, in the United
States; and among 500+ adults, 18 and older, in Australia,
France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Netherlands,
Singapore, and the U.K.
Where applicable, local examples of ride-sharing platforms,
food-delivery services, e-commerce, and other multi-sided
marketplaces were used in individual country surveys.
Research Background
Multi-sided marketplaces, which facilitate transactions between
third-party buyers and sellers, are fundamentally changing the
way we search, shop and live online.
On average, internet users in the region not only spend more time
online, but also use the internet more intensely than their peers
around the world, with 38% spending 20 hours or more on the
internet per week, above the global average of 34%.
They also shop just as much, with 8 in 10 buying something
online in the last month.
Marketplaces are transforming consumer
life in Asia Pacific.
Do you spend more than 20+
hours a week online?

Consumers today are far more likely to make a purchase on a
marketplace, whether they realize it or not.
In Asia Pacific, 77% said that marketplaces help them find
products, service, and offers they otherwise wouldn’t find. This
figure is even higher in markets like Singapore and Hong Kong,
where more than 80% report the same.
Six in 10 now spend more money on online marketplaces. And
well over half say that they like using marketplaces for everything
from transportation to hotels and food.
The way consumers in Asia Pacific
shop has also changed.

For many, a big part of the experience came down to having fast,
secure, and frictionless payments experiences.
Seven in 10 consumers in Hong Kong, more than 6 in 10 in
Singapore and 5 in 10 in Australia will abandon a purchase if it
takes too long to enter payment information.
About 7 in 10 in the region also said that not having to enter
credit card information would be an important feature in their
preferred marketplaces. And over 90% want to know their details
are safe.
Fast, secure and frictionless
payments are key.

While credit cards remained the most popular payment
methods, more than a quarter in APAC — and more than a
third globally — said they preferred digital wallets and
payment methods like Apple Pay, Alipay, and Android Pay.
Notably, more than a third in APAC also said they would be
more likely to visit a website or app if it offered more
alternative payment methods, a preference that rises
markedly amongst millennials.
It’s not just about credit cards
anymore.

This is a significant step in the evolution of online commerce.
Though the internet economy has grown from under US$1
billion a year in 1995 to US$1.5 trillion today, only 3% of
global GDP is online today1.
This, in part, has been because much of the internet
economy’s growth over the past 25 years has been driven by
the growth of advertising online — an activity which has
limited economic impact, typically accounting for half or one
percent of a country’s GDP.
Now, however, we’re seeing the real transformative
impact of the internet as it evolves from advertising
platforms to commercial platforms, or multi-sided
marketplaces, enabling the creation of new commercial
experiences that cannot exist in the offline world.
Marketplaces are not just changing the way we travel,
shop, commute, they are fundamentally changing the
internet economy, driving the next wave of online
growth, especially in Asia Pacific.

The platform effect: Rise of the marketplace economy in Asia Pacific

  • 1. The platform effect: Rise of the marketplace economy in Asia Pacific
  • 2. This study was conducted online by Nielsen in January 2018 among 1,000+ adults, 18 and older, in the United States; and among 500+ adults, 18 and older, in Australia, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Netherlands, Singapore, and the U.K. Where applicable, local examples of ride-sharing platforms, food-delivery services, e-commerce, and other multi-sided marketplaces were used in individual country surveys. Research Background
  • 3. Multi-sided marketplaces, which facilitate transactions between third-party buyers and sellers, are fundamentally changing the way we search, shop and live online. On average, internet users in the region not only spend more time online, but also use the internet more intensely than their peers around the world, with 38% spending 20 hours or more on the internet per week, above the global average of 34%. They also shop just as much, with 8 in 10 buying something online in the last month. Marketplaces are transforming consumer life in Asia Pacific.
  • 4. Do you spend more than 20+ hours a week online? 34% 38% 42% 43% 30% 38% 21% 33% 0% 50% 100% Global APAC SG JPAU HK US UK Answered ‘Yes’ to spending 20+ hours online 81% 80% 77% 75% 78% 89% 76% 87% 0% 50% 100% Global APAC SG JPAU HK US UK Have you bought something online in the last month?

This figure is even higher in markets like Singapore and Hong Kong, where more than 80% report the same. Six in 10 now spend more money on online marketplaces. And well over half say that they like using marketplaces for everything from transportation to hotels and food. The way consumers in Asia Pacific shop has also changed.

This figure is even higher in Singapore and Australia, at 77% and 64%, respectively. In Hong Kong, hotel and hospitality marketplaces came up tops — nearly half have used a hotel or hospitality marketplace in the past year.

  • 47. This is a significant step in the evolution of online commerce. Though the internet economy has grown from under US$1 billion a year in 1995 to US$1.5 trillion today, only 3% of global GDP is online today1. This, in part, has been because much of the internet economy’s growth over the past 25 years has been driven by the growth of advertising online — an activity which has limited economic impact, typically accounting for half or one percent of a country’s GDP.
  • 48. Now, however, we’re seeing the real transformative impact of the internet as it evolves from advertising platforms to commercial platforms, or multi-sided marketplaces, enabling the creation of new commercial experiences that cannot exist in the offline world. Marketplaces are not just changing the way we travel, shop, commute, they are fundamentally changing the internet economy, driving the next wave of online growth, especially in Asia Pacific.
