NASDAQ: YY | YY Inc. News, Ratings, and Charts

The global market in digital transformation is expected to see a CAGR of 18.5% between 2020 and 2025. And the pace of automation in China is the world’s fastest. Given the country’s manufacturing cost advantage in the global markets, its tech companies have the potential to grow exponentially with rising international demand for their products and services.

However, China’s proposed anti-monopolistic regulations to cover the internet industry are expected to hurt tech giants such as Alibaba Group Holding Limited (BABA), Tencent Holdings Limited (TCEHY), and JD.com, Inc. (JD). So, we believe the nation’s smaller tech players should benefit from taking chunks of market share from these giants.

The unique offerings and financial flexibility of lesser-known Chinese companies like JOYY, Inc. (YY), Sina Corporation (SINA), and Renren, Inc. (RENN) position them well to benefit significantly from both the country’s rapid automation and the likely limits to be placed on tech giants.
