Why NOT to Be Afraid of ‘Made in China’ Labels

Although there are some assumptions Americans make when it comes to goods made in China, most of us don’t know where the majority of the products we use every day are manufactured. From socks to laptops, China-based manufacturing facilities are responsible for producing many of the goods we use throughout each day.

The era before the Industrial Revolution, the time period in which developed countries made the transition to manufacturing, left China as stereotypically being known for producing and importing porcelains, silks, and teas. Now China is known as the “world’s market” and is a top manufacturer across the globe.

Because the marketplace for merchandise creation has become so vast, China-made products have sometimes been given a bad reputation and some consider these items as being poorer quality and less valuable in exchange for a cheaper cost of goods and higher profit margins. This assumption is not always true.

China-based facilities are improving their reputations.

Chinese factories have been diligent in cultivating a positive reputation by improving facilities and working conditions. With stiff competition cropping up everywhere and many countries being able to closely match the manufacturing costs in China, the Chinese manufacturing industry is having to make changes to stay competitive. China is working hard to gain back the label of being quality, affordable and trustworthy in the global world of product manufacturing.

Your favorite luxury goods may come from China

Although there was a long period when China was most well-known for its exports of just a few very specific goods, many luxury items and brands are now being manufactured in the Eastern country. Top luxury brands such as Prada, Burberry, Louis Vuitton, and Dolce & Gabbana all manufacture items in China. Not only is the cost of goods less expensive, but the products themselves are top quality.

China’s leaders are committed to quality control.

Chinese leadership understands that in order to continue to be a world leader in manufacturing, they must continue to make adjustments that will entice countries such as the United States to stay invested. These improvements are being made in all facilities from food to fashion.                                  Manufacturing facilities continue to be improved with equipment and working conditions for laborers.  “Made in China 2025” is China’s strategy to have new focus in quality over quantity as it relates to manufacturing. China’s goal is to move away from being known as the “world’s market” and instead to be known as a powerhouse by using technological advancement instead of human labor as the driver for their quality goods. According to an article on Morethandigital.info, the key strategic areas of focus for China will be the following:

  1. Building Research and Development Centers across China (40 to be built by 2025)
  2. Development of High-End Projects across all of the key industries
  3. Sustainable production and worldwide leading green manufacturing practices
  4. Smart Manufacturing including robotics and digitalization
  5. New materials production to be less dependent on others

With this newfound focus, “Made in China” labels will be more impactful than ever, and we are here to help you navigate through procuring the products you need for your business. Global Manufacturing is the buying, sourcing, and manufacturing partner you can trust!
