There are about 1.3 billion Chinese living in mainland China, 21 million living in Taiwan, another 40 million live in countries and areas such as Indonesia, Thailand, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Burma, Philippines, Canada and U.S.A. When you have a web site made in Chinese, you will have access not only to the market in mainland China, but also to many wealthy ethnic Chinese markets all over the world. (Source)
In China alone, there are estimated 3.8 million Internet users in China and the number grows at an annual rate of 150%.
