These days, the market capitalization competition between Kakao and Naver is emerging due to minor interests in the ICT industry.
Market capitalization is literally an indicator of how much the company is valued in the stock market. Since Samsung Electronics is ranked No. 1, it is easy to see how many large companies that can be known by their names are located in the domestic market.
It is true that Naver and Kakao have divided the domestic Internet market. Still, the personality was slightly different, but if Kakao was more specialized in mobile based on the national platform called "KakaoTalk," Naver felt firmly established in the PC platform, focusing on leading portals and search services.
In the Internet market, Kakao was 10,000 'second in line'. Until last year, market capitalization could not be compared to Naver. However, since Covid-19, the digitalization of the industry and the spread of non-face-to-face services have increased rapidly, and on the 14th, it ranked third, beating Naver.
If the mobile market had not been opened, it would not have left the second-in-command position for the rest of its life. Fortunately, it has laid the groundwork for the early transition to mobile and bold business expansion, and as the crisis of COVID-19 has turned into 구글상위작업 an opportunity, it has established itself as a winner in the platform confrontation that is difficult to reverse.
Then did Naver do something wrong? Not at all. Naver is doing well as Naver does.
On the contrary, considering overseas markets, Naver is better than Kakao. While "Kakao Talk" is a national app, it does not escape from domestic use, Naver's " Line" is known as a national app in many countries around the world. It's just messenger app. In the content business such as webtoons, Naver's stronghold is solid overseas, and Kakao has a metabus platform that can not be touched.
Since market capitalization is priced with stocks, it is bound to go up and down anyway, and unless one of the two companies goes ahead in tens of trillion units, the ranking is expected to turn upside down.
Come to think of it, the most useless thing is the war of attrition, "Is Kakao better or Naver better?".
We should focus on the fact that it is time for us to have an Internet company to dominate the global market, compared to Kakao's growth.
Speaking of market capitalization, will Kakao and Naver be games with Amazon, Alibaba, Facebook, Google and Tencent? Everyone doesn't know that it's a nonsense. But is the level of service provided by our Internet companies inferior to them? Anything is fine, so let's try one of Google's services. The answer comes out.
We have seen the foundation of the industry shake a lot whenever global services enter the country. How long do we have to be the only ones. Can't we see them shaking when our company goes abroad?
It is true that Kakao and Naver have become dinosaur companies, but when it comes to the global market, they are still baby dinosaurs
