Starcon seeks to help our international partners integrate China into their global strategies by achieving market entry and local brand awareness and also by helping to realize benefits from China¡¯s impressive manufacturing capabilities.

Market Entry

While the long term outlook of such a rapidly growing market with a consumer base that is receptive to international brands is positive, China is a challenging market with intense competition, significant regional cultural and regulatory differences and a still developing retail environment. Success in China for international companies is anything but guaranteed, and many international companies are still searching for the right formula to reach Chinese consumers.

Starcon has many years of experience of navigating China¡¯s challenges. From market research and planning to legal compliance and logistics, we help companies set up the proper local foundation for a successful business. Starcon has a network of regional distributors that provide coverage into key markets throughout Hong Kong and Mainland China in different retail channels. By consistently offering a full selection of leading international brands, we maintain strong relationships throughout the sales channels, enabling us to effectively and efficiently support our partners¡¯ brands and products within the marketplace.
