In 2019, the overall development of cross-border e-commerce industry has been on a positive trend. The scale of cross-border e-commerce continues to expand, and competition within the industry continues to be fierce. Pinduoduo and other competitors have successively entered cross-border e-commerce and Alibaba has acquired Kaola, which has unleashed huge market demand. In this context, word of mouth and user trust have become key factors in the competition of cross-border e-commerce platforms. As the data of iiMedia Research showed, in the user survey with a total sample size of 1757, 74.1% of consumers said that when buying overseas goods, the most important thing is whether the goods are genuine, while 58.8% said brand awareness is very important.

Users' requirements are improved and market supervision is tightened, prompting major e-commerce platforms to take various quality assurance measures, empower the supply chain with technology, strengthen the control of the whole process from procurement to supply, and actively maintain and build brand reputation.
In the context of consumption upgrading, users are increasingly pursuing consumption experience, and new consumer groups are more dependent on the guidance of key opinion leaders (KOL). Offline stores, overseas online shopping live broadcasting and social communication narrow the distance between users and products, make up for the shortcomings of traditional overseas online shopping from different perspectives, and comprehensively upgrade user consumption experience. As the data of iiMedia Research showed, 56.6 percent of consumers believe that online stores can provide a more comfortable shopping experience than online channels. Dual-channel integrated development can enhance users' trust and double channels drainage, which has become an inevitable trend in the development of cross-border e-commerce industry.

As the data of iiMedia Research showed, the consumption scale of Chinese Spring Festival golden week is expected to grow steadily, reaching 1103.4 billion yuan in 2020 and the Spring Festival will become China's largest consumer scene. As the backbone of the Chinese New Year's consumption shifts to the 90s group, brands should pay attention to product and sales model innovations in order to timely cater to changes in consumer groups. As the data of iiMedia Research showed, 55.7% of the Internet respondents pay attention to the quality of goods when they consume in the Spring Festival, while 60.7% of them pay attention to the health of food products.

With the improvement of logistics distribution efficiency, the change of people's consumption concept and the introduction of various favorable policies, cross-border e-commerce has entered a stage of rapid growth, and major cross-border e-commerce companies have gradually increased their new retail layout. As the data of iiMedia Research showed, China cross-border e-commerce transactions are expected to reach 12.7 trillion yuan in 2020. In addition, after Alibaba's wholly owned acquisition of Kaola, the pattern of cross-border e-commerce industry has been significantly changed, and Alibaba will occupy more than half of the market share in the cross-border e-commerce industry, further highlighting the advantages of the head platform. Most overseas online shopping users have a relatively optimistic attitude towards the acquisition. 60.9% of the users believe that the acquisition is conducive to the integration of industry resources, and more than 50% of the interviewed Kaola users implies that they will increase the use frequency of products after the acquisition of the platform.
IiMedia Research data show that from 2012 to 2018, the scale of China's cosmetics market showed a stable growth trend, with an annual compound growth rate of 8.0%. In particular, the rise of “Yan-value economy“ has further stimulated the enthusiasm of Chinese netizens for cosmetics consumption. Judging from the attention of netizens, netizens in Guangdong pay most attention to cosmetics-related information, followed by Zhejiang, Shandong, Hubei and other places. Generally speaking, Chinese consumers have large demand, high purchase frequency and great development potential for daily essential cosmetics. However, they are faced with such problems as the high-end market being dominated by international brands, intense homogenization competition, and difficulty in premium payment for enterprises. Cosmetic companies need to further understand the consumer market, seize the trend of Yan-value economy and other economies, open up channels for social e-commerce transformation, and conduct more refined product sales.
The upgrading of national consumption and the increasing demands for product quality and product diversity have promoted the development of cross-border e-commerce market. At the same time, the promulgation of the E-commerce Law provides a normative development environment for the industry. Under the condition of increasing user demand and strengthening industry standardization, the scale of cross-border e-commerce transactions is expected to increase to 10.8 trillion yuan in 2019 and the cross border e-commerce has entered the 10 trillion yuan market. As the data of iiMedia Research showed, quality assurance during ”618“ is still the most concerned factor for cross-boder e-commerce users.

During the”618“period, while the online platform developed rapidly, the user's enthusiasm for offline shopping is also growing.

Off-line shopping has the advantage of direct contact with commodities, which can enhance the trust of commodities and improve the user experience. 93.1% of the interviewed users were satisfied with the offline consumption experience during 618.
The spring breeze of the policy promotes the rapid development of the cross-border e-commerce industry. As the data of iiMedia Research showed, China's users who buy imported goods online have exceeded 100 million in 2018. It is expected that the transaction volume in 2019 will exceed 10 trillion yuan. Capital continued to increase the cross-border e-commerce sector. In the first quarter of 2019, China's cross-border e-commerce sector invested more than 2 billion yuan. The cross-border e-commerce head platform maintains a competitive advantage. Cross-border e-commerce offline stores are more likely to achieve high-price per customer transaction, users prefer to buy watches and clocks, digital home appliances, auto supplies in offline stores. The users who consume more than 1,000 yuan average single-time in the offline stores accounted for more than 50% . Its offline stores have an obvious effect on the diversion to the online platform . 75% of the offline store customers who are interviewed are willing to try or use the corresponding cross-border e-commerce online platform more. The biggest pain point in the development of cross-border e-commerce industry lies in the authentic security. Therefore, all kinds of cross-border e-commerce platforms are strengthening the layout of offline stores. The good experience of offline consumer is also beneficial to the later conversion to online platform users. In the future, the integration between online channel and offline channel of cross-border e-commerce will continue to deepen, and offline stores will pay more attention to the opening of commodity pools and the use of technology to help impoving experience.
The rapid development of China E-Commerce industry, and the traditional e-commerce platforms are facing the bottleneck of high customer cost, are objectively laying the foundation for the development of social e-commerce. As the data of iiMedia Research showed, the scale of China mobile e-commerce users is expected to increase to 713 million in 2019. The rise of the social e-commerce industry also benefits from the social platform and mini program dividend provided by Wechat. In 2018, the scale of Wechat mini program e-commerce users has reached 132 million. With the rapid rise, the total financing amount of China social e-commerce exceeded 25 billion yuan in 2018. At present, China social e-commerce platforms are mainly divided into three types: social sharing e-commerce, social content e-commerce, and social retail e-commerce platforms. Among them, the social sharing e-commerce platforms which emphasizes fission transmission has earned the most satisfaction with users, which is 7.26. With the development of social e-commerce, pyramid marketing and fake news are frequently spread due to the problems of operation mode. Government regulations and internal supervision of the industry need to be strengthened urgently.
With the publishment and implementation of a number of related policies, Chinese cross-border e-commerce and its industrial chain will be further standardized. In March 2019, the government published a series of favorable policies such as fee reduction and tax reduction to help cross-border e-commerce development. China and the United States have actively negotiated that trade wars have little impact on cross-border e-commerce. The capital market is optimistic about cross-border e-commerce development.

The head companies released the strategy of 2019, and the restructuring of the Red was further transformed with structural adjustment. AliExpress brought domestic Beauty brands to overseas market, and Tmall International upgraded its direct business to create a new model of overseas warehouse and content marketing. The industrial chain has been further developed, cross-border logistics warfare has been upgraded, and industry standardization has spawned new business model such as service providers, and Youzan has published a cross-border e-commerce solution product. Cross-border e-commerce recently had more negative grievances, and NetEase koala and Red all had negative events, causing concern. At present, cross-border e-commerce users are relatively young and mainly women, and the potential consumer market is relatively broad.
