Manufacturers in China

As an experienced China sourcing agent, clients often ask me what is happening in China right now and how is the global recession affecting them. Well, I guess the answer is yes and no really. With demand slumping around the world, Chinese exports have dropped off as global markets become more conservative in the short term. This has led to the freight forwards seeing huge spare sea container capacity, leading to significant rate drops for freight during 2009.

However, many manufacturers in china have tended to nudge their focus towards the Chinese domestic market during this time as this continues to grow at a significant pace. As the middle class Chinese become more aspirational for a better standard of living, their numbers are swelling rapidly and as more ordinary Chinese workers strive for a better life with its inherent consumer “trappings”, it drives further demand. In fact, as factories move from traditional industrial areas around Hong Kong to inland wildernesses in the pursuit of lower costs, increasing numbers of low paid workers are exposed and benefit from the migration. This is perhaps one reason why prices from manufacturers in China have not particularly fallen in the last 18 months.
