    Chinese products threat to the Indian products or producers?

    Hi everybody,

    I would like to open a new forum about Chinese product will treat Indian producers or products as now Chinese product are very cheap in the world market and become popular.

    Even in the Europe or Arabian countries importing from Chinese products with low price and high margin. I think Indian manpower still in higher side compare to Chinese. Or we are importing row material from other countries to make the product, that will cause problem for high price

    So please post your views and thoughts for our products.

    Regards,
    Any

    That's a tricky question.

    Electronics goods from China are already eating up a major share of other multinational companies (in mobile phones, pmp's, camera's etc). Since there are no Indian companies who are involved in the manufacture of these products, Chinese good's don't affect us in these areas.

    As far are plastic toys, clothes, electronic spare parts, speakers etc are concerned, Chinese products have been able to make a big dent in the Indian Market.

    In most cases Indian product's are better than their Chinese counterparts but as India is a price sensitive market, Chinese product's are sold more.

    All roadside seller's, have Chinese items. Now even the big malls and some reputed stores have started keeping Chinese goods.

    A good example is that of a child's toy called Beyblade (TM)(basically a variation of a spinning top). It was a must have for kids about 3-4 years ago. Though Funskool (a multinational company) had exclusive rights to make the original Beyblade (TM), it was the Chinese manufacturers who benifitted most.

    The Orignal Price of the Product was Rs. 249/- and upwards.
    The Chinese made were sold between Rs. 30/- to Rs 200/-

    The original Indian spinning top, with which we played in our villages as kids was simply out of the picture.

    The same thing applies to headphones, other children toys, and electronic spare parts from Indian or multinational manufacturer's.

    PS: Many people forget the Golden rule: QUALITY COMES AT A PRICE.

    Usually Chinese products are not long lasting. Compare a Chinese Mobile with a Nokia Mobile.

    Hi any,

    Chinese are doing well in this aspect they are using their resources very well and making the worlds cheapest goods. But one thing I observed is that the cheapest goods which were imported from china were very inferior quality.

    How ever the Chinese are also supplying the quality goods at a premier prices. Their manpower is commited towards the development of the country. There is no political biase in that country. Where as in India our leaders oppose the Industrial projects.

    Nano Car plant is one of such example in India. India cannot compete with China at least another Century. We love politics and politicians. We follow this vulgur culture and ignore the developments of our neighbours.

    Hi Vivek Ram Mhatre/RK,

    Yes they got professional / quality product but expensive too.

    I think their population making probelm in concern. Because they got population of 1.5 billion, it is a country in which the average factory wage is 40 cents an hour.

    But compare to India, China is “the world’s factory floor and…the world’s greatest market opportunity,”

    Also China has between 100 and 160 cities with populations more than one million as compared to U.S. Europe. According the survey, one district like Pudong itself nearly 6,000 foreign-funded businesses and companies working. Also they work 70 hours per week also half of the workers working 7 days a week.

    I felt toys, digital products, are considered the biggest threat to the book industry, According the survey conducted by Frankfurt Book Fair from 1324 publishers from 86 countries, saying 53 percent of digital products the biggest threat to the publishing industry, 11 percent believe that printed books will be out of date in 50 years, and 23 percent predict that book shops may be kicked out of the market.

    In any case, we clearly need either to stop importing scrap product into our country, otherwise what RK said our politician should consider to bringing a good economy to our country helping to produce quality product by ourselves.

    So we need to consider all the aspects.

    India needs to have a national policy where it can impose strict restrictions on quality control for certain Chinese products such as toys. These toys have not undergone any toxicological tests and have dangerous levels of metals in the colourful paints which they use. Why cannot the Indian Government sensitise the public on such an important issue? Every imported toy from China can also be subjected to strict quality control tests and labelled as safe before the commercial sale. The lack of organised players in the toy segment in India is the main reason for this. I still wonder why big companies like Reliance and Tata have not set up any products in this most lucrative segment. If such players enter in to the toy segment, the Chinese policy of flooding the Indian market with inferior products would fail.

    I think Chinese products in India have good and bad both effects but bad effects are greater than the good one.

    First I want to talk about good effects. There are large part of India living below poverty line and does not have resources to buy luxury products. But Chinese products provide them this opportunity to know and use these products. Chinese products are too cheap that they can afford easily. These products also providing business avenues to Indians also as Chinese can produce anything with limited recourses hence less cost of production. That’s why most of the biggest companies have manufacturing hub in China.

    However Chinese product quality is so bad sometimes the person buys it swears that he will never buy any Chinese products again. Also it seems that China is dumping their bad quality product in to India. The main problem faced by world from China is increase in pirated products. You will find everything pirated these days. But China provides a base for pirating. Not India whole world will facing this problem.

    Our products are superior than China’s but cost is so high and a country like India it is very necessary to keep your cost low as individual mentality hare is take products which has a less price. That’s where our producers loss battle.

    However in future I think people will reduce use of China brand as people want value for money and if they got cheated once with quality of Chinese product, they will go back to quality product and hence this will improve their position in Future.

    Chinese products are in direct competition with Indian products in domestic market and the advantage will go to the one with lower prices.

    I think there is no need to any kind of restrictions. Now the Indian consumer is smart enough. There are issues of low quality Chinese electronic products, but not many cases have been reported. It all depends on whatever the importer wants to import from China. They ask them to produce low cost products, which China produces for its buyers in India.

    Our government can restrict few products (mobile) for safety purpose from China.

    I think whatever products imported from China unfortunately are mostly below any standards or quality criteria. So the consumer is not very keen to purchase Chinese products in India except for the toys. But if we think about the lamps or electronic products nobody is buying them mostly. India is not being threatened by China's cheap imports to India.

    The same country (China) is also supplying to US / Eurpoe / Gulf / Far East country/market where the consumer is quite quality conscious. So it depends on the buyers' demands. If the Indian buyers are asking for cheap products than China is producing these products for them.

    Foreign Trade specially with India-China bilateral trade can reach huge benefit to each other country.

    we dont have to worry about the chinese products affecting our local market because some kind of competition is required for the local products to improve themselves.

    we cant stop them instead we should use this as an oppurtunity to improve ourselves.

    But at the same time we should not allow them to dump harmfull stuff on our shores.There was some recent reports about chinese chocolates having harmful chemicals.There are lot of chinese chocolates in our current market and i am not sure anyone is checking it.
