China SME B2B total revenue is 4.96 billion CNY in Q2 2013, which has a year-on-year growth of 19.2% and QoQ increase of 7.4% according to data from iResearch. Compared to Q1, the year-on-year growth in Q2 slowed down, but QoQ growth goes up a little.
Due to international market sluggish, China SME B2B growth slowed down. However, domestic demand was positive in Q2 which provided good opportunities for SME.
Statistics show that China SME market share by revenue situation hasn’t changed too much, with top 8 enterprises occupying 63.9% market share. Alibaba kept the lead with 42.9% in Q2, 1.2% higher than Q1 2013. Global Sources jumped to 7.5% and DHgate up slightly in Q2 this year.
Alibaba’s growth in market share is likely due to its increased number of members and the new P4P (pay for performance) model in its international version of website.
