Toys manufacturing in China is big business in America.
According the US Commerce Department, 9 out of every 10 toys bought in the US are now made abroad, with China manufacturing accounting for a majority of these imports.
The largest and most famous toy manufacturers in the U.S. like LEGO, Mattel and Hasbro are actually manufactured in China. Even the toys manufactured in America import many of their components from China.
China commands nearly 75 percent of the 30 billion dollar global toy market.
HKTDC Research says the vast majority of China’s toy exports are manufactured by OEMs. That means most of the world’s biggest toy brands rely on China for their toys in one way or another.
China has a lot of depth in the manufacturing of toys. Despite the potential problems of toy manufacturing in China, moving manufacturing to China could be a wise decision.
Low Labor Cost Advantage
One of the main reasons companies start to think about toys manufacturing in China is because of low labor costs.
There are over 1.3 billion people in China’s labor force. The competition for employment is fierce. Manufacturing companies in China can easily find lots of people who are willing to put in long hours for relatively low wages.
From a manufacturing company’s perspective, this gives them the ability to scale production as high as they want for seasonal products and products that suddenly become successful. This provides a lot of peace of mind for the company marketing its products.
Comprehensive Network Of Services And Suppliers
Every toy manufactured in China requires tools, parts and materials. Over the years, China has developed sophisticated networks of government agencies and distributors. Their ecosystem includes low-wage laborers, a deep and wide base of skilled workers, component manufacturers, assembly providers and logistical support.
This is the real advantage of toys manufacturing in China.
Problems You Are Likely To Encounter
A lot of toy sellers really don’t like the process they have to go through for toys manufacturing in China.
The first problem is there are so many different types of toys. How do you pick the right one that will make a profit for you.
Next, you need to figure out where the best toy manufacturing network is in China.
The reality is that most toy factories in China are very small. They use “trading companies” to do their marketing for them. Trading companies set up booths in wholesale markets. There are two main wholesale markets for toys in China. Each has thousands of small factories.
