How to use Industry Cluster information to faciliate your sourcing in China

 If you are importing or sourcing from China, youd better learn more about China Industry Cluster first for better results. The Industry Cluster, also known as competitive cluster, business cluster or Porterian cluster, was introduced and popularized by Michael Porter in The Competitive Advantage of Nations (1990).

 The Industry Cluster here refers to the phenomenon that factories, companies, sellers, raw materials and technologies from the same industry are concentrated in the same area or region. If 99% of the factories are making the same product in the same area, that is called Industrial Cluster. For example, if you are looking for fireworks, you can simply come to Liuyang city, which is the home of fireworks in China, where more than 400000 people engage in the fireworks business, covering raw materials, prodution, technology, shipping, package and quality control etc. The Liuyang-made fireworks account for more than 70% of China market and nearly 50% of the global market at present. You can find out hundreds of companies here for fireworks there. So a right industry cluster can make your sourcing in China easier and faster !

    Among the top 100 industrial clusters, around 80% are located in the coastal provinces. Most of them are located in Zhejiang, Jiangsu , Guangdong , and Shandong provinces, these 4 provinces account for 60% of the top 100 clusters. Sometimes for the same product there might be different industrial clusters with differnt quality levels, say, for Safety Shoes, China has 3 industryl clusters .Guangdong ( highest quality ), Wenzhou (medium quality) and Shandong ( low quality). For hair products, there are more than 3 different industrial clusters as well, Qingdao (high quality), Xuchang (middle), Yiwu (low quality). For clothes, you may find out more than 20 clusters all over China.
