Asia Consumes Online Mobile Video

A recent study by Nielson confirms that Asia is hungry for video. Asia has a higher frequency of watching mobile video than any other geograhphic region. PRDA has been promoting the use of video as a primary communication tool in Asia through its online channel SOUTV for many years with great success. It is reasoned that the high adoption of video in Asia is attributable to 3 factors:

  1. Communication across languages and culture: Asia is exceptionally diverse in language and culture. Video helps cross these divisions easier than text based or audio campaigns alone. If it moves it tells the story better.
  2. Technology adoption: Asia is the hot-bed for electronics manufacturing and home to many emerging economies. This creates a perfect opportunity for early adoption of technology that supports mobile video viewing.
  3. Infrastructure: The technology infrastructure across Asia has amazing. What is surprising is that where broadband pentration maybe high, but it is not always available due to power outages and other tangential reasons.
Video use in Asia has been on the upswing for many years as technology and economies grow at a robust pace. China still remains one of the biggest consumers of online video despite issues restrictions on certain sites. We will continue to see an increase as the adoption of smartphones takes Asia by storm.

Much success,

Doug
