HONG KONG — November 23, 2022 — Pattern, the category leader for global ecommerce acceleration, recently closed another successful Singles’ Day sales event—driving accelerated growth for its partner brands during the world’s largest online shopping festival.
Pattern’s total gross merchandise value (GMV) in China during the 2022 Singles’ Day sales period was up 180% over the previous year—outperforming the market, which saw comparable GMV generated during Singles’ Day 2022 to the previous year.
Throughout the event, Pattern analysts observed strong demand for foreign products—a signal that Chinese shoppers are continuing to pursue products online they are not able to find locally. Health-related products, in particular, saw elevated demand driven by consumer preferences for prioritising personal health.
“A robust 11.11 sales event demonstrates the resilience of China’s economy, especially in the face of global economic headwinds, COVID-19 outbreaks, and supply chain disruption,” said Pattern Chief International Officer Chris Vincent. “As the second-largest economy in the world, China continues to be one of the most exciting opportunities for Western brands to expand their customer bases and drive growth.”
Pattern’s unique business model, local expertise, and patented ecommerce acceleration technology were all factors in the company’s 2022 Singles’ Day success. Partner brands that have been trading with Pattern in China for more than a year experienced an 88% uplift in sales year over year, on average, with many seeing their products in the top 10 of their respective categories.
“There’s nothing we love more than helping brands accelerate their growth, especially during a massive sales event like 11.11,” said Pattern Asia General Manager Arthur Cheung. “The strong result we delivered during Singles’ Day speaks to our relentless drive to support our brand partners in adapting to China’s unique ecosystem—leveraging a mixture of on and off-platform advertising, live streaming, influencer marketing, and localised content that resonates with Chinese shoppers.”
