Chinese Markets Offer Opportunity to the Forward-thinking

One complex economy making strides to regain ground lost in the 2008 global economic downturn is the Chinese Market. With a steep decline in export demand, Chinese markets have looked into retooling the way they conduct business within China factories and other sectors in an effort to fully bounce back to the global export leader it recently was.

According to the Hong Kong Trade Development Council, Chinese Exports have taken the biggest hit; domestic demand remains high, keeping Chinese factories and manufacturing up and running. In fact, domestic demand for goods is on the rise, as noted by many leading China industry market researchers. As workers continue to receive pay increases, the demand for Chinese manufactured luxury items such as leather and other high end consumer goods moves steadily skyward.

The focus now may be on domestic stability in China, but getting back on track with their booming exports is the real objective. China’s top 10 key industries for export are:

   •   Cars
   •   Steel
   •   Information technology
   •   Logistics
   •   Textile
   •   Nonferrous material
   •   Equipment manufacturing
   •   Petrochemicals
   •   Ship building
   •   Light industry

These industries are the backbone of the China export economy. With a changing world and demands for ‘Green’ living on the rise, Executives of the state council led by Premier Wen Jiabao have called for a restructuring and reinvigorating of these ten top Chinese industries, and the China factories that support them. This kind of forward thinking is what made, and continues to make, one of the world’s largest and strongest economies thrive.

With export demand down, Chinese officials are looking into ways in which they can turn their domestic demand outward. For example, Chinese factories are now looking into the world trend of “Going Green”, meaning the days of energy consuming industry are on their way out and an energy efficient economy is emerging. Already significantly farther down the road on many environmental technologies than the United States (such as solar panel manufacturing, where China leads the world), this also presents a solid opportunity for Western entrepreneurs seeking to break into China’s manufacturing business and solidify business partnerships on a green and global scale.
