In the past 30 years or so, amusement rides industry in China sprung up from scratch. Having struggled to create a complete industry chain, China’s amusement rides industry finally makes independent research, development, design and innovation instead of relying on exports. Nowadays, China’s amusement rides are of premium quality and at a high level.
Compared to Japan in which has a mature and long-history manufacturing in amusement rides, China is proud to assume that the difference of amusement rides between them is tiny and even superior to it in some fields.
Amusement equipment manufacturing industry in China has remained an expeditious development regarding product design or manufacturing. It is undeniable that in China, the emerging amusement rides industry still encounters with a lot of challenges and pressures in entertainment performance, in the face of improved living standard of people and increased consumption capability. Of course, opportunities and market potentials always come along with the challenges.
Most importantly, it is fundamental to get deep into the industry development before you enter China’s amusement rides market.
Progressive Innovation Ability in R & D
China didn’t get involved in manufacturing large amusement rides until 1980s. Drawn from the advanced technologies and skills from developed countries, China opened the market and developed robustly.
At the embryonic stage, the manufacturing techs learned from Japan to a large extent. Nevertheless, the awareness of independent design, innovation and R & D was evoked by Chinese manufacturers. Progressive innovation ability of amusement rides helps Chinese manufacturers go globally.
Regional Manufacturing Bases
In view of the production base of amusement rides in China, China boasts regional characteristics. For the time being, the major manufacturing bases of amusement rides locate in provinces including Guangdong, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Fujian. Among which, Guangdong province shares the largest two bases which are respectively in Gangkou Town, Zhongshan and Panyu District, Guangzhou. Since 1980, Zhongshan city has done its utmost effort to go from strength to strength and lead the field in China even in Asia.
