It wasn’t too long ago, when China was known primarily as a source of basic household items, and very cheap clothing and textile products. China manufactured just about anything that only required massive labor inputs, and very little technology. Slowly, China’s exports began to diversify into making components for consumer electronics and household appliances. China also became a source of industrial products like steel and construction materials. They may not have had their own global brands back then, but they practically made components and assembled products for every global brand in the world. Apple for instance, has its biggest plant producing their iPhones in China.
Times have changed. With technology transfers and China’s own innovative and entrepreneurial spirit, it is now home to some of the biggest global brands in the world. Brands like Alibaba, HuaWei, ZTE, HTC, Lenovo and Xiaomi are now household names. In fact, according to one source, China’s biggest export now is mobile phones. China now manufactures products as sophisticated as jet airplanes and electric cars. It has certainly come a long way from its copycat days.
However, we must not lose sight of the fact that China still has its vast supply networks of traditional export industries like garments, textiles and toys, that continue to thrive until today. At ChinaDirect, we still assist Australian companies import pet products, baby or infant clothing, furniture, aluminum windows and beddings.
