Firstly, technology giant Apple continues to be optimistic about the potential of the Chinese market. Apple Inc. announced the expansion of its application research labs in China. In the spring of 2024, Apple opened several new stores, including Apple Jing’an in Shanghai, which is the eighth store in the city and the second largest Apple retail store globally.

In the pharmaceutical industry, Envision Energy signed cooperation agreements with multiple international pharmaceutical companies, providing renewable energy to support their manufacturing facilities in China, which helps promote sustainable development across the entire industry. AstraZeneca invested $475 million in a new small molecule innovative drug factory in Wuxi, Jiangsu.

Additionally, in the technology sector, Micron Technology Inc. announced an expansion of its investment in China to strengthen cooperation in the semiconductor and digital economy fields. Automotive giant Volkswagen announced in 2023 an additional investment of 6 billion euros in China to establish a charging network and a smart driving research center.

In the financial sector, a Deloitte report shows that although China’s A-share IPO market slowed down in 2023, the Beijing Stock Exchange is expected to become an active market in 2024, and several new listings, including those of international companies, will support the rebound of the Hong Kong market.

In the tourism industry, for example, Marriott International and Delonix Group announced strategic cooperation in mainland China, aiming to provide services to Chinese tourists seeking unique, high-quality life experiences through brands such as Tribute Portfolio. This indicates that the international hospitality industry is actively expanding its market share in China.

In traditional industries, international food giants like KFC, McDonald’s, and Starbucks have continued to increase their store presence in China; GE Healthcare announced plans for research and development in China over the next three years. This also includes foreign enterprises building new factories, expanding marketing networks, and opening new physical stores to achieve comprehensive localized operations.

In the new retail track, e-commerce platforms like Amazon have increased their logistics network and infrastructure construction in China, especially in lower-tier cities, and have closely partnered with local chain supermarkets and restaurant businesses to achieve online-offline integration. They are also aggressively expanding new businesses such as instant delivery and unmanned stores, comprehensively competing for the consumer market for food and daily necessities.

Meanwhile, emerging tracks like electric vehicles and artificial intelligence are bringing a new wave of investment fever for multinational companies, becoming a significant lure for their return to China. Competing in these cutting-edge fields to gain a voice and leadership is a core strategic goal of their return.

China Marketing Report: Challenges from Chinese Big Companies

During the absence of foreign brands, Chinese local enterprises have counterattacked and risen rapidly, posing a significant threat to Multinational Corporations. The return is merely to maintain market share and challenge competitors.

Chinese companies in emerging technology fields such as artificial intelligence, new energy vehicles, and new retail have also become hot spots for many Chinese tech companies in the Chinese market. For instance, on March 28, 2014, Xiaomi officially entered this Chinese market, including the SU7 standard version, which features a 700-kilometer range and smart driving capabilities. However, even though Xiaomi entered this field, the industry has already become a “red ocean.” Meanwhile, Huawei‘s Pura 70 series, including the Pura 70 Ultra, launched in April 2024, is known for its advanced specifications and innovative design elements, especially emphasizing camera capabilities and high-end performance. A key point is the use of the Kirin 9010 chip made in China.

It’s clear that the urgent task is how to create “blue oceans” in these emerging tracks rather than joining the already intensely competitive “red oceans” competition. For foreign companies, focusing on localized innovation and development, finding the right entry points and positioning is crucial. Those brands and enterprises that grasp the characteristics and new demands of the Chinese market are more likely to stand out in this competition.
