China’s massive population has always been a key driver of Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (NYSE:BABA)’s accelerated growth awaiting to see if the company will seek to enhance its presence in international markets. `
“We estimate Alibaba is only selling to about 21% of the total population and that is why I am saying it is less than 25%. But in 10 years we are expecting they are going to be selling to well over 50% of people in China. So the potential of upside is very high, “said Mrs. Meng.

The same is expected to grow to highs of 85% in the next 10 years, margins that the company will look to tap into.
