Market research undertaken by HVP has been assisting clients address the following critical questions:

  • Is your product right for the Asian market, all the while recognizing that there is no single “Asian” consumer and the market ranges from highly developed (e.g. Singapore, HK, Japan) through to countries that are still developing.
  • Will your product be affordable, will there be demand and will the route to market/demand/price relationship work for you?
  • How do “Asian” tastes differ from those at home, or in other western markets you may be familiar with?
  • Who are the possible/likely local competitors?
  • Which parts of Asia should you focus on? Asia as a whole is already too big for all but the very largest NZ & Australian companies, and therefore in many/most cases only a relatively few number of cities or regions can more than adequately supply sufficient demand.
  • Are there any particular regulatory obstacles that need to be dealt with?
  • Are there any regulatory changes afoot that may affect your operation in future?
