  • A great way to expand your network with high quality leads — SFCHINA is the ideal platform for suppliers to meet influential decision makers all within 3 days in one place.

  • Maintain your competitive edge in today’s challenging economic climate — the value and effectiveness of exhibiting at SFCHINA remain constant. No matter in good or bad times, you should continue to exhibit.

2. China is now the world's largest finishing market

  • The output value of China’s coating application and products reaches RMB tens of billions each year while its electroplating industry reaches RMB100 billions every year.

  • Finishing is a booming industry with a forecast to reach US$107 billion in global value by 2017, and China will continue to be the growth engine of the industry.

  • The growth in China is strong as China is boosting its domestic needs. Continuous innovation is also the key to enable new applications and further grow the finishing market.

3. Finishing is a huge market in China, particularly in the Pearl River Delta (PRD) region

  • PRD region is located at the southeast coast of China, adjacent to Hong Kong and Macau and close to Southeast Asia, is the world’s leading centre for a wide range of light industry and an important processing and manufacturing base.

  • Major cities like Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Dongguan, Zhuhai, Foshan, Zhongshan and Shunde are the production bases of automotive, electronics, electronic information, IT, household appliances, lighting and furniture industries respectively.

  • PRD region’s industrial output continues to overtake other regions, especially the electronics industry, South China accounted for 20% of the country.

4. When a country witnesses growth in its GDP and personal income, the need for decorative and functional products also increases significantly

  • China’s GDP growth was 7.8% in 2012, well above the global average, and is anticipated to attain 7.5% in 2013 and continues to outpace other leading economies.

  • 2012 Guangdong's GDP reached RMB5.7 trillion, an increase of 8.2% over 2011, has been ranking first for 24 years.

5. The finishing market potential is further enhanced by rapid industrialization and urbanization as well as sustainable economic development in China

  • Rapid local urbanization and public desire for better quality of life intensify the domestic demand of the downstream and end-user industries, such as building and automotive. There is also a rising demand from aerospace and machinery industries.

  • Increasingly stringent environmental rules and regulations urge the elimination of backward production capacity and the introduction of innovative technologies for promoting energy conservation, emission reduction and clean production.
