Take a fresh look at Asia’s top economies

Asia has been the engine of global economic growth for decades, yet this is not a monolithic region. The major Asian markets vary a great deal in terms of consumers’ mindset, lifestyle, and expectations. Some of these differences have widened amid COVID-19, which saw in Asia both the world’s speediest and most successful containment of the virus as well as some of its heaviest tolls.

This report provides the latest on the top Asian economies: China, India, Indonesia, Japan, and South Korea (referred to Korea in this analysis). It answers questions such as: how has COVID-19 impacted local economies and the emerging middle-class; what are differentiating and uniting values across countries; which nations are most and least pro-technology; where consumers turn for purchase information; and more.
