Distributing your Brand in China

China represents a $250 billion market for US companies today, according to estimates of the U.S.-China Business Council. McKinsey & Company estimates that 76% of China’s urban population (550 million people) will be considered middle class by 2022 making it the 3rd-most populous country in the world with more than 160 cities with populations of at least 1 million.

Additionally, the e-commerce opportunity should not be missed with Chinese consumers buying $589.61 billion (+33.3% from 2014) worth of goods, according to the National Bureau of Statistics in China, compared to only $341.70 billion spent online in the US in 2015. The same year, China’s 500 largest e-retailers grew their combined online sales by 60% to $198 billion. Continue reading Distributing your Brand in China

How China Compares With Other Southeast Asian Nations For Manufacturing Labor Intensive Consumer Goods? “The Rise of the Mighty Five (MITI-V)”

After convincing the world that they were the next economic superstars, three “BRIC” nations (Brazil, Russia, India), are sliding down the list of expected power players. As the exception, having proved all previous predictions to be right, China remains the most competitive.

Rising costs, an evolving middle class, changes to its ‘one-child’ policy, and greater focus on technology and innovation may soon change China’s global manufacturing trajectory.” Simply put, as China’s middle class expands and its economy shifts toward technology, other countries will maneuver to become the next go to countries for low cost manufacturing. So, which countries are coming into focus as significant potential competitors to China’s lead for low cost manufacturing?

China sourcing: Pulp-based Packaging Price Status & Outlook

The price of paper and wood pulp on the global market has been on the rise for the last few years, which in turn is causing an increase in the cost of packaging for many businesses in China. But, why are paper and pulp prices rising?

One reason for the rising prices is an increase in e-commerce activity, which has accelerated the need for cardboard boxes. Another reason for the hike in paper prices is that toward the end of 2013, the Chinese government began its air, water and soil pollution prevention plans.

The United States/China Manufacturing Relationship: A 100-Day Plan

“The trajectory of the next four years will hinge on whether China and the United States can avoid a trade war or any other kind of War.” ~ Richard Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations

In early April, President of the United States Donald Trump and his Chinese counterpart President Xi Jinping of China dined together at Mar a Largo. How cordial the dinner would be and what would be discussed were matters which the entire world was waiting to know. The relationship didn’t start well, though. As president elect, one of Trump’s first calls went to Taiwan’s president. China took that as a slap in the face to nearly fifty years of diplomacy.
