Founded in 1970 by Merle Hinrichs, Global Sources, formerly Asian Sources, has long been a key media group supporting consumer merchandise sourcing in Asia. The company provides buyers with information on products and suppliers, while it provides manufacturers with marketing services. Core products and services include online sourcing platforms, exhibitions, print magazines, small-scale sourcing events and industry research.

Global Sources’ core online business is to create and host a supplier’s product and company information on its flagship website. The company is one of the few B2B media companies in Asia with audited community numbers. Global Sources’ corporate website notes that the company offers information on about 1,300,000 product profiles and about 122,000 suppliers and exporters, and an “active buyer community” of 1,181,077.
