New Report

China Media & Technology Outlook 2014

In response to subscriber demand for country-specific drill-down analyses, PQ Media has released the first title in a new multi-report series providing in-depth strategic intelligence covering the state of digital, alternative and traditional media and technology in key emerging markets worldwide.

The first report in the series - China Media & Technology Outlook 2014 - examines the key growth drivers and challenges that lay ahead for Asia's major economic growth engine. Following a decade of blistering economic growth, China's media and tech industry began to cool off in the second half of 2012, due to lower demand from its largest foreign markets, many of which have been scrambling to build some momentum after a particularly long recession and a slow recovery that still has executives and economists tentative about the growth outlook for 2014-15, especially in the world's largest developing economy, where financial, credit and real estate variables loom large this year.
