Why the Asia Market?
Great Support from Asia-pacific Governments
In September 2021, the State Council Information Office of the people's Republic of China issued the white paper "The all-round well-off society of China", which proposed to vigorously promote the accelerated development of Internet infrastructure and the upgrading of overall consumption of China, thus providing strong support for the infrastructure construction and market demand of the metasverse; In August of the same year, the South Korean Ministry of Finance pointed out in the 2022 budget that it planned to spend US $20 million on the development of the metaverse platform; In July of the same year, the Ministry of economy, industry and trade of Japan released the "investigation report on the future possibilities and topics of the virtual space industry", hoping to take a leading position in the global metaverse.
Huge consumer market in Asia Pacific
In the world's top ten mobile Internet consumer markets, half of the share is occupied by Asia (China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Vietnam). 90% of consumers in the region use smartphones to access the Internet, and they use apps for an average of more than four hours a day, an hour longer than any other region in the world. “Generation Z” and millennials in Asia are immersing themselves in digital consumption in ways that their peers in other regions cannot imagine: content consumption, product purchase, socializing and playing games. Today, among 3 billion gamers worldwide, more than 55% live in Asia. In Asia, driven by many factors such as games, social networking, entertainment, interactive technology and a wider range of creators, economic benefits have been rising and have occupied a dominant position.With Asian consumers spending more and more of their lives online, it is becoming increasingly difficult to distinguish between "real" life and digital life, making the development of the metaverse a huge draw for consumers in the Asia Pacific market.
