China, Brazil And Singapore Lead Consumption Of Digital Media And The Willingness To Pay For It

Media and technology players cannot go it alone

To satisfy the intense information needs of tech-savvy consumers, content, devices and distribution channels need to be integrated, the survey suggests. It is unlikely that any single player can master all these components, making cooperation and collaboration a necessary approach.

"The new class of digital consumers wants more and different 'information experiences' and is prepared to pay for high-quality, video, music, books and digital print material from recognized brands," said KPMG's Matuszak. "While tech companies have powered the ecosystem for the new user experiences and will continue to drive innovation in content creation and delivery models, traditional media companies have the opportunity to evolve, as some have done, to join tech companies as innovators in these areas, and open the door to new business models."

About the survey

To understand how consumers are allocating their time and budgets to media in all its forms, KPMG International commissioned YouGov to undertake an online global survey of more than 9,000 consumers across North America (US, Canada), Europe ( Germany, Spain, United Kingdom), Asia Pacific ( Australia, metropolitan China and Singapore), and Latin America (metropolitan Brazil). Metropolitan China has an estimated population of 426 million and metropolitan Brazil 50 million. In each market, around 1,000 adults (aged 16+) were interviewed, with the exception of the US, where the interviewees were all 18+ and China and Brazil, where the data was representative of the "urban populations". The data was weighted across age, sex and region. All figures, unless otherwise stated, are from YouGov Plc. Fieldwork was undertaken between 1 and 15 October 2012.
