Porter’s five forces industry analysis - YOKU

Degree of rivalry: high

YOKU is operating in a relatively competitive market. With the acquisition with Tudou completed in August 2012, it captures the largest market in Chinese online video market (over 1/3). However, it still faces competition from other video websites like iQiyi.com, and also integrated web portal with video services like Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU), Sina Corp. (NASDAQ:SINA), Tencent (HKG:0700) and Sohu.com (NASDAQ:SOHU). The competition is for both users and advertisers. The lack of content innovation makes users easily diverted to other video websites.

Considering China is the fastest growing economy and largest nation in the world, Africa surely must be taken notice by investors across the world. Why Africa?
