Majority of Refrigerator Shoppers on China's Tmall are Men Aged between 25 and 29: MIC
December 09, 2015

Better living standards and rising disposable incomes in China have led to a growth of the refrigeration market, particularly among young adults. In a study carried out by Taipei-based MIC (Market Intelligence & Consulting Institute) using big data analytics, refrigerator shoppers on Tmall in China were men aged between 25 and 29, followed by those aged between 30 and 34.

MIC findings further revealed that foreign brand Siemens tended to appeal to male shoppers aged between 25 and 34, with the majority living in Zhejiang, Guangdong, and Jiangsu. With three models in the top-10 bestselling foreign brands on Tmall over the research period, Siemens' strong reputation for quality and good after-sales services have been highly recognized by Chinese Internet users.

When it comes to selecting a refrigerator, Chinese Internet users tended to focus on noise level, price and refrigeration performance. This reflects the fact that price level is one of major determinant factors when Internet users purchase refrigerators online and therefore has a significant impact on the purchase decision of a refrigerator buyer in China.
