Is it profitable to import from China?


There are millions of markets that import only from China. We know it or not, big percent of goods are connected with China in different ways, they are produced in China or produced in Chinese machinery in another country. But even after all of these, there are businesses that are fearful of importing from China.

Why importing from China bring more profit than buying in your country?

  • Lower costs

This is the main but not the unique reason why more and more companies are trying to import from the most populated country in the world.

  • Manufacturing the same product would be cheaper in this country

If the expenses are less in a country the amount of companies would only grow, which will bring the competition between them. And as a result, the same products become cheaper and in higher quality. People think that shipment would be too expensive and the total cost of a product become the sale as local, but they are wrong. Of course, transportation is additional spending but even after all procedures the importer wins in terms of spending.

  • Large volume is not problem for manufacturers.

Most people are concerned about the large quantity that will be imported, but there is no reason for fear. Many factories are specialized exactly for large quantities, and they are ready for that.
