Hong Kong - Alibaba Group Holding's quarterly revenue beat analysts' estimates, powered by Chinese consumers' thirst for cheaper and higher quality goods online.

Overall revenues in the quarter rose 56 per cent to 50.2 billion yuan, beating the United States dollars 7.2 billion average of analyst estimates compiled by Bloomberg. Revenue was up 56.1% on-year to 50.18 billion yuan, driven by China commerce retail business, global commerce retail business and Alibaba Cloud.

Alibaba's revenue rose 56 percent to 50.18 billion yuan ($7.52 billion) for the three months ended June 30, compared with the analysts' average estimate of 47.7 billion yuan, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. The increase in revenue was due to robust growth of customer management revenue, as well as growth in commission revenue.
