The average spending of Taiwanese netizens during the double 11 shopping festival is expected to increase by 44%, or NTD 6,655 (USD 212.6; USD1=NTD 31.3) to NTD 21,728 (USD694.2) in 2022, according to an online questionnaire survey conducted by the MIC (Market Intelligence & Consulting Institute) of III (Institute for Information Industry) during the fourth quarter of 2022. MIC has observed Taiwanese netizens’ shopping behavior towards China’s Double 11 shopping festivals for six consecutive years. This year, the findings reveal that over 70% of surveyed respondents claim they will increase spending on Double 11. "The amount that consumers spend on this Double 11 will be a major indicator whether consumer's online shopping behavior before pandemic will stay," said Robin Hu, senior industry analyst at MIC. "We think there are three main factors that contribute to consumers' willingness to spend on this Double 11. The first factor is the changes in consumers' online purchase behavior before the pandemic does stay and the second one is that e-commerce retailers' short-term sales promotions succeed in boosting consumers' willingness to spend online, and the last factor is an increase in the planned purchase during the Double 11 due to global inflation."
The findings also point out consumers aged 46-55 have the highest intention to purchase during online shopping festivals with the highest average purchase amount of NT$ 25,887 (USD827). Up to 74% of respondents aged 46-55 reported they will increase purchase amount during online shopping festivals, only next to consumers aged 56-65 (75%).
