In the third of our series covering individual Asian market Digital landscapes, we take a look at Vietnam.
With a population in excess of 90 million and internet penetration of 35.6%, Vietnam represents a huge opportunity for brands. 52% of Vietnamese consumers watch online video on a daily basis, meaning the transition of consumer attention from TV to alternative screens is happening at a rapid pace. Mobile penetration is around 145%, although with only 15.5 million 3G subscribers, and 69% of the population located in rural areas, the key consumer challenge still remains engagement on feature phones.
Below are five of the latest takeaway resources covering the key digital facts and figures for Vietnam.
