Being Asia’s Trusted Research Partner
for Over 20 Years

The predecessor to Rakuten AIP started in a classroom of a Tokyo university, by several Japanese and Asian students who believed in the potential opportunities of Asia and identified the need for local languages to be accessible on the newly invented Internet. They formed a collaboration and launched a multilingual portal website for Asian audiences in 1997 when the Internet and World Wide Web was in its infancy.

Online research solutions being very limited at that time, the company that would become Rakuten AIP grew into a pioneer of Asian online sample providers recruiting respondents from their member database and networks, serving both domestic Japanese and international clients. With countless encouragement and support from clients over the world, combined with dedicated team members and together with trusted local partnerships where needed, the company opened access to researchers across the globe looking for high quality samples and efficient solutions throughout Asia by harnessing the power of the connected world.

Over the last two decades Rakuten AIP has remained at the forefront of consumer market research data collection in the region. Our online panels have been developed throughout 12 major Asian countries and regions, all of which are managed by dedicated local support teams and meet the highest standard of the industry. The team at Rakuten AIP offers 24-hour coverage from 10 worldwide locations, providing exceptional service for our over 400 clients across the globe.

With the well established business history, performance and networks, harnessing the power of synergy within the Rakuten Group network; Rakuten AIP will further be striving to be the best market research partner in Asia.
