Manufacturing in China
China, the country where everything is possible when it comes to manufacturing. A lot of people currently know that China is a very interesting country to outsource your production to. However, a lot of people do not know where to start when outsourcing their production to China. Where do you begin? In this blog we are going to tell you something about the Chinese manufacturing history and what JDLsourcing has to offer when it comes to manufacturing products in China.
A look at the Chinese manufacture history
Up until 1949, the Chinese industry was mainly located in the large East-Coast cities and the North-East of China. Shanghai was the largest industrial centre followed by other cities such as Anshan and Fushun from the same province.
In the 1950s, the industrial centre in the East and North-East of China accounted for one-third of the total industrial production of China. However, after 1983 this changed when industrial centres in the North, South and South-West increased their share in the total production to at least 40 percent. Before this, the Chinese industry was mainly focused on the heavy industry, but the economic reform program in 1979 resulted in a massive increase in consumer goods production such as televisions, washing machines and bicycles.
Due to these evolutions in the Chinese industry, different provinces in China started to specialize themselves in manufacturing specific kinds of products. Some cities even became famous because of their specialization in particular products. In general, most of the broad industrial sectors with a wide range of different product specialisations are mainly located in the East due to the fact that the West area of China consists of the agriculture sectors. Therefore, it is important to know in which region you should be for manufacturing your product at the right price & quality.
The different manufacturing regions
The best provinces for production of consumer goods are located at the East-Coast of China. Here, you can find an extensive line of many different kinds of production sectors. Provinces such as Guangdong, Shandong, Jiangsu and Zhejiang offer a lot of different options regarding manufacturing.
It is also important to know that the cities in these provinces are more specialized themselves. For example, the city Zhenjiang in the province of Jiangsu is specialized in the manufacturing of eyewear, the city Guizhou in the province Guangdong is specialized in the manufacturing of shoes and the city of Wenzhou in the province of Zhejiang is specialized in lighters. Thus, the industry in the East-Coast region offers a lot of different possibilities when it comes to manufacturing consumer goods in China. Due to this, it is important to do a lot of research about different cities and different specialities for when you want to manufacture your products in China.
If the emphasis lies more in the heavy and complex manufacturing such as motorcycles, furniture or steel, the specialization shifts more to the North and West of China. Here, the cities such as Bishan and Zhengzhou are specialized in the manufacturing of motorcycles and aluminium products.
To find the right Chinees manufacturer for your company, it is important to look at what your company wants to create to know in which regions you need to be.
