5 Gum is an international chewing gum brand, and one of many looking to boost market share in a category that is fast-declining in China (down 10% in 2017). There is one market that shows no sign of decline, however, and that is mobile gaming.
Mobile gaming has become a national sport in China – there are now more than 620 million gamers. That's almost half the entire population, with younger audiences spending hours on these platforms.
