The stream attracted over 13 million viewers from China. International brands have increasingly adopted this popular marketing channel to share content and brand stories directly with consumers. In turn, this has brought the offline experience for each product online in an interactive and engaging way. International influencers are also gaining more popularity among Chinese consumers through livestreaming.

      • The number of merchants who used livestreams increased 200%. Total GMV through livestreaming has increased 50 times.
      • Popular sectors leveraging livestreaming include cosmetics and apparel, home appliances, fashion and jewelry, auto, food and beverage.
