What is your over­all pres­ence in In­dia?

UCWeb es­tab­lished it­self in In­dia be­fore it was merged into Alibaba Group in 2011. We are the only busi­ness within Alibaba Mo­bile Busi­ness Group to set feet on for­eign lands out of China.

As a core mem­ber of the Alibaba Mo­bile Busi­ness Group, we aim at pro­vid­ing in­fras­truc­tural in­ter­net ser­vices to In­dia in­ter­net users - web­page brows­ing and ap­pli­ca­tion down­load­ing, as the 2 gate­ways to make con­nect­ing to the in­ter­net world easy and fun.

The core prod­ucts of UCWeb are UC Browser – the all-in-one brows­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and 9Apps - a dy­nam­i­cally de­signed an­droid ap­pli­ca­tion store with over 250 mn monthly ac­tive users.

In terms of page views, ac­cord­ing to the gen­er­ally used 3rd party data from StatCounter, over 50% of the web­pages are ac­cessed by UC Browser in In­dia – a ma­jor mile­stone on our mis­sion to con­nect half of the In­dia Cy­ber Cit­i­zens to the In­ter­net. Our monthly ac­tive users in In­dia stand at over 80 mil­lion (as of March 2016) - ac­count­ing for more than 30% of the pop­u­la­tion of mo­bile in­ter­net users. Our jour­ney in In­dia has been fas­ci­nat­ing, rich and re­ward­ing, in more ways than one.
