Today´s Chinese Computing Devices Market: A Global Growth Engine
As the world’s most populous country, the world´s largest Internet user base, and now the world’s second-largest economy, China is the hot spot for foreign investment and the international market. The sheer size and scale of the China market play an increasingly important role in global technology trends. Join Ms. Kitty Fok, VP of Greater China Research at IDC, in this session as she takes you through IDC´s outlook for China´s seemingly insatiable demand for gadgets. Learn about different consumer spending patterns and impulse buying, market expansion to lower tier cities and to the western part of the country, as well as competition between local and foreign vendors, especially given Lenovo´s global presence and Acer´s recent partnership with Founder. Finally, she´ll take you through how devices fit into the bigger technology picture as cloud computing and mobility trends pan out in the upcoming years.
