Hong Kong – Asia’s Media Hub

Hong Kong has developed a leading edge in key areas across the creative industry. According to the latest statistics, Hong Kong has over 28,000 creative industry-related establishments*. In 2019, the value added of creative industries stood at about HK$61.4 billion, representing around 2.2% of Hong Kong’s GDP**. 

With internet coverage across most of Hong Kong’s households, the city’s population has a growing appetite for media consumption and remains one of the highest in APAC.

*** Ipsos began the Media Atlas syndicated survey over 15 years ago and it has been a barometer of cross-media consumption and people’s lifestyle of the city. More recently Media Atlas has gone through a major overhaul with a renewed focus to serve the print publishers, where many have been extending their presence from paper to the digital space.
