Emerging markets of Asia and Northern America: web scraping activity rises

The year 2020 will be challenging for the global consumer markets, according to the “Industries in 2020” report by the Economist. In volume terms, growth will slow to 2.2%, compared with 2.5% in 2019. That said, the volume growth is anticipated to be led by Asia, and Oxylabs Data Analysis Department’s research indicates growth in web scraping operations for this particular region.


A conducted research by the Data Analysis Department revealed that Oxylabs’ clientele located in Asia is steadily growing their web scraping operations via both residential and data center proxies’ overall usage.

On the subject of data center proxies’ traffic, Oxylabs’ clients located in Asia are recording on average 12.5% growth from late September, as the in-depth analysis revealed.

With that said, while Oxylabs’ North America clients have indicated positive growth in data center proxy traffic in early 2019, the growth significantly slowed down later on in the year. Presently, a slight traffic increase has been observed since the beginning of November 2019, yet the Data Analysis Department is not forecasting any significant growth soon.

It is worth mentioning that in the case of both Asia and North America, the significant growth in data center proxies’ usage for the web scraping tasks began in the August-October period. This indicates early preparations in external intelligence gathering and the placement focus in these regions for the year 2020 by Oxylabs’ clients.
