"Asian Americans’ preference for everything digital boils down to two things: convenience and customization, according to Nielsen. What if they’re away from the TV? No problem, as most programs can be streamed on a smartphone. What if they want news designed specifically for them? That’s easy, by tuning into an online Asian-American news show broadcast. The convenience that mobile devices have brought to digital content platforms can also be found in the ever-growing world of e‑commerce, where Asian Americans lead, both in total dollars spent and in number of purchases made."
Marketers surely couldn’t miss the news reports earlier this summer that proclaimed Asian Americans to be the fast growing immigrant group in the U.S. While Asian-Americans comprise only 5.8% of the population, they possess tremendous spending power. Researchers point out that on a per capita basis, Asian-American spend more than Hispanics or African-Americans so marketers should be fine-tuning their plans to target this group.
