Super king markets have sprung up in Singapore, the Philippines and Vietnam, as part of a market-creating craze in Asia, where the promise of cheaper goods and higher returns are appealing to the masses.
But while super king markets in China and Japan have generated billions in annual growth, they have not generated as much in the past three years.
Super king markets are a global phenomenon and a market for which the likes of Alibaba and Baidu have become pioneers.
Baidu’s $7.5bn (£5.4bn) market in China is estimated to be worth more than $3.5tn (£2.5tr) and its super king platform in the Philippines is worth more to its users than all of China combined.
While super king economies are expanding globally, in Asia they are still relatively small, accounting for a quarter of the world’s population, according to the McKinsey Global Institute.
This means that there are few local examples of such a boom.
And the markets in which super king firms are thriving are the ones that have not been built.
“These are very, very small markets where people are already very wealthy and can afford to invest in a lot of things, and are really well organised,” said Tim Sine, a professor at the University of Sydney.
“That is the reason why it is so difficult for these companies to become global leaders, and the reason for this is because they are not really leading their own markets.”
Sine told New Scientist that it is important to understand that super king products have to be developed and tested to be successful.
Sines is not convinced that super kings can ever achieve the success of the local players.
It is not that super-rich people do not want to buy and invest in their own businesses, he said.
They just don’t want to spend a lot.
If you want to be able to grow, you have to invest and build a lot, but if you invest in your own business and invest it well, then you can eventually do it.
There is no evidence, he added, that super markets are being built in the way they should be.
A report published in February by McKinsey and Co. said super king revenues have been growing at around 7% per annum since 2012, but that it does not provide clear evidence that the market has become more productive.
In addition, McKinsey found that super market companies did not appear to have created or maintain the kind of sustainable value-creation platforms that had led to them being valued in the first place.
The report also found that, while the super market in the Asia Pacific region has been expanding, the market in North America and Europe is shrinking.
Some analysts believe that the super king business model is not working as well as it could because there is no real incentive for the companies to be efficient and to develop long-term value.
However, the report notes that super companies do not have the same incentive as smaller players to focus on short-term profits and build up their cash flow.
Instead, super king companies have an incentive to make money, to keep investing and to be profitable.
To do so, they are creating value through a mix of acquisitions, buyouts and dividends.
What are super king investors looking for?
The McKinsey report found that while super market firms have developed and maintained a strong customer base, they do not appear as if they have built value.
“In a super market, a lot is not necessarily built,” Sine said.
“You have to think about what kind of value-creators the super companies are.
If you want more value, you can invest in the company that is building value.
If the company is building more value than you are, then maybe you can buy it.”
What super markets do well It may sound paradoxical to look at a super marketplace and think it is a place where people can buy everything they want, but McKinsey argues that this is actually a very good thing.
People in super markets, the study found, are willing to pay more for something than people in a traditional market.
For example, in super king countries like China and the Philippines, the super marketplace is known for offering prices that are significantly lower than the market as a whole.
Furthermore, super markets often have a “buy it now, pay later” mindset.
So if a company is developing a product that is going to be of value in a few years, people in super market countries are willing pay for it.
This is because, according a McKinsey study, super market investors have a lower risk tolerance and are willing “to accept smaller incremental risks than the typical investor”.
This is one reason why they are willing in the super markets to pay a lower price than a traditional investor.
These low risk-tolerance behaviours make the super economies so attractive to investors.
