The number of Chinese short video users exceeded 1 billion as of December 2022, up 8.3% year-on-year, according to the China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC) on Wednesday. The figure means that 70% of China’s population have accessed short videos, according to the report. Douyin and Kuaishou dominate the Chinese short video market, with the former topping 600 million users in 2020, the last time it officially released user data. Kuaishou recorded 363.4 million daily active users in the third quarter of 2022. Chinese online retailer Pinduoduo, food delivery giant Meituan, and Tencent super app WeChat are also investing heavily in their short video services as cross-sector competition increases.
