Asia Pacific region refers to all counties located in East Asia, Southeast Asia, South Asia and Oceania. While the Asian countries are still in the developing stage, those in Oceania are considered developed. However, there’s one common thing that binds every individual of these regions, i.e. Internet. Each passing day witnesses more number of people opening online accounts, developing social media platforms and making optimum utilization of virtual communication in their daily life. From shopping to surfing, people belonging to these areas are increasingly becoming dependent on digital platforms. They may be sleeping but their gadgets are always active.
So do you have any idea about the digital marketing statistics of Asia Pacific? Let’s have a quick look at the September stats:
Artificial Intelligence- Still at Bay
AI is a new topic for the entire world. From Madagascar to Europe, everyone seems to be fascinated by this term. Lay men talk about it; the programmers try hard to make it. There have been a few achievements as well in the form of robots. A report named ‘Artificial Intelligence in Asia: Trust, understanding and the opportunity to re-skill’ however throws a sad picture of AI over the Asia Pacific.
Of all people surveyed, 53% still believe that humans are more trustworthy than robots. Most Asians only have faith on content recommendation engines compared to humans. 1 in 3 Asian nations are completely unaware about AI. Forget AI, people in these countries are even worried about their present digital accounts. In fact, they are eager to know about data security and are deeply concerned about data leakage. No wonder they still prefer sticking to their e-devices, such doubts and queries remain in their minds.
Australia’s Increasing Ad Spends & Decreasing Good Experience with Online Marketing
September has been both good and bad for Australia. Going by the ‘IAB/PwC Online Advertising Expenditure Report’, digital spends has climbed up to 11% in the present year-ending June 2018. Businesses have spent $3.1 billion on general online display, $3.7 billion on search and directories, $3.6 billion on mobile, $1.6 billion on classifieds and $1.7 billion on video ads.
Despite such huge expenses, 60% of Australian marketers are not satisfied by digital marketing. Their experience is rather worsening day by day. This means that although people possess interest in digital media and businesses are willing to spend for these people; yet the digital marketers aren’t skilled enough to meet the mutual goals. Little more training can perhaps get them on track.
Any Digital Society?
Yes and it is China. With technology continuing to rule 60% Chinese brands, people have started imagining their digital society. They are extremely positive about this concept and are holding their breath to release into the digital world. According to Digital Social Index 2018, 73% Chinese opine that a digital society will create space for jobs and economical growth besides addressing conventional societal challenges.
