Q3 Liquid Domains Market: China gains market share, sales volume goes down

GGRG Brokerage Consulting and Giuseppe Graziano published the 3rd quarter Liquid Domains Market Overview partnering with Estibot’s parent company Intelium and ShortNames.com.

This report is focused on the 3rd quarter of 2016 and presents key statistics of the domains that are considered liquid in the domain name aftermarket.

There are separate sections for each liquid domain name category: LL.com, LLL.com, LLLL.com, LN.com / NL.com, NN.com, NNN.com, NNNN.com and NNNNN.com.

The report provides the percentage of domain name ownership of major regions (US, Europe, China, Rest Of the World), development percentage, turnover and public sales volume.

Here are some important points from the executive summary:

    In Q3 China continued to gain market share. Over 1% of all liquid categories (approximately 6,000 domains) transferred to
    Chinese owners. US and Europe lost each around 0.2% of the market, while the rest of the world made up for the rest with a -0.6%
    ownership decrease.
    A total of 4,853 disclosed transactions accounted for $5,092,793 in total sales. Sales went down roughly 35% (-$2.8M) from Q2.
    In Q2 we forecasted a decline in 5Ns domains, the least developed category. The low development signalled that there was not
    meaningful demand from end users and prices might have been supported by short-term investor demand, also explained by the
    high concentration.
