Singapore, June 3, 2010 – comScore, Inc.

The report found that 87 percent of Singapore’s Internet population viewed video online in April, with an average viewer consuming 10.5 hours of video during the month.

“Online video is an integral part of consumers’ digital lives, with more people in Singapore viewing online video each month than visiting social networking sites,” said Joe Nguyen, comScore vice president for Southeast Asia. “It’s important for brands to recognize the substantial reach and highly engaging quality of the online video platform as a way to target and interact with consumers in an increasingly fragmented Internet environment.”

The average Internet user in Singapore spent 10.5 hours viewing video in April, consuming 130 videos for a period of 4.9 minutes per video on average. The demographic composition of online video viewers revealed that users age 15-24 were the most engaged demographic segment, averaging 192 videos per viewer during the month and consuming more than 15 hours of video content. People age 55 and older also showed heavy engagement with online video, averaging 12 hours of consumption and 155 videos per viewer in April. Although users age 25-44 represented the highest percentage of unique video viewers, they spend less time viewing video and watch fewer videos per viewer than the younger and older age segments.
