The niche yet valuable market that you’ve been looking for

According to Forbes, Asian American households have a 41% higher average income than the national average. As the third-largest ethnic market in the US, Chinese-Americans spend an estimated $117 billion annually which is known as one of the most affluent ethnicities in the US.

“With the growing Chinese population in the United States, it’s becoming more important than ever for brands to meaningfully engage Chinese Americans across media channels,” highlighted Eastward media.

Eastward media segmented the Chinese Audiences into three functional consumer groups: Newcomers, Establishers, and Assimilated. In particular, Assimilated Chinese-Americans are immigrants who have more than ten years of residence in the US or are the children of immigrants. From a marketing perspective, Assimilated Chinese-Americans reflect general market trends, but they also pay attention to content that ties with their heritage.


72% of Asian American Consume In-language News and 68% Consume Entertainment

To penetrate this unique audience base, here’s why advertisers should not exclude the in-language media from their marketing mix. Tony Li, the Media Supervisor of Admerasia presented at the 2022 3AF annual summit and indicated that 82% of Asian Americans subscribe to at least one streaming service. Specifically, 72% of them consume in-language news and 68% of them consume in-language entertainment.

In-language content addresses the needs of primarily foreign-born Americans as they want to stay connected with their roots despite pursuing another life in the United States. On average, viewers over the age of 35 years old view 37 hrs of in-language media content per week, according to the same report. This result is interrelated with the cultural dependence of Asian Americans.
