Potentially the biggest markets in the world, especially in the future. I know about motiongraphics and pixta, but are there other, more Asia specific places that sell stock (footage in particular for me)

They are based in Singapore, they are somewhat of a low earner though...

I think they have pretty much of low cost productions so stock media is not that heavily used as that in Europe and the USA. The same thing to Russia, for example. I've never sold a single clip on Shutterstock in my homeland :)

Thank you both. Yeah that makes sense. Here's to hoping their budgets increase!

Getty has representative offices both in China and India. I do sell in both countries.

yes, ranking 1 and 2 in world pop
imagine today...
1,326,801,576 respectively

in Beijing alone, it is said, there are more single women earning above-average income
holding management and supervisory positions. iow, easily the demographic
with the most disposable income.
thus, the focus on designer clothing, expensive car, even plastic surgery,..
is capitalizing on this section of China's pop.

not sure about India, as the progress is hindered like so many colonialist countries (too many chiefs too little indian bickering over borders) so things like the bullet train, infrastructure,etc
are not as fast implementation as China.

you are right, this is an untapped market for stock photography.
except that many things are controlled by the govt,
so i imagine the usage of stock photos would more or less be also
internalized .

but as my taiwanese colleagues say, there are just as many photographers in beijing
and also in taipei. not to forget there is also japan and south korea
to supply china with photographs.

but , whoever taps into this emerging market , will definitely gain a foothold to
a lot of disposable income. the question is poltical connection.

excellent question, though! as to where they get their stock images,
ask one of the people in politics for the answer.
