The State of the Buy & Sell Market in Hong Kong – 2016

Swapit has seen some phenomenal growth in the year 2016 that has just passed. Our community has increased significantly and the activity on our marketplace is growing day-by-day. To ensure, we are addressing the right audience, we keep a close eye on how our users are using Swapit, what’s useful, what can be improved and especially what kind of content they like.

While we already see growing traction across the globe, our core user base is still in Hong Kong. So we have gathered all the products being posted on Swapit in 2016 and looked at their categorization. There is an interesting shift from our previous analysis in March 2016, but please have a look yourself:

So our top 3 product categories are now:

  1. Fashion
  2. Jewelry & Watches
  3. Consumer Electronics

Compared to our previous chart from March 2016 that’s a bit of a shift. In March the top 3 categories were:

  1. Consumer Electronics
  2. Fashion
  3. Home Appliances

I am already excited how 2017 will turn out. We have some serious changes for Swapit in the making and our growth projections are even more exciting. Stay tuned for more on that!
