Computer case supply is booming in mainland China. More than 100 companies manufacture PC cases, with about 30 to 40 makers capable of filling customized, big-volume export orders. New makers continue to enter this line.
Leading suppliers are domestic-oriented companies with strong brand recognition, followed by export-oriented players whose only products are PC cases and who concentrate on OEM business. These two groups possess the manufacturing experience, maturity, marketing savvy and readiness to satisfy the sourcing requirements of global PC case buyers.
A projected 32 million PC cases will be produced in mainland China in 2004, 60 percent of which are expected to be delivered to overseas buyers.
Pitted against the mainlands homegrown suppliers are transplanted PC case manufacturers from Taiwan, who have clustered mainly in the Guangdong cities of Dongguan and Shenzhen, and in the provinces of Zhejiang, Jiangsu and Shanghai.
These Taiwan-originated companies are among the global industry leaders with monthly production capacities exceeding 1 million units and whose OEM clients include Toshiba, NEC, Hewlett-Packard, Sanyo and Wal-Mart.
Their business mode is high-volume and export-oriented. Backed by many years of manufacturing experience, Taiwans PC case makers boast more sophisticated R&D capability and more reliable QC/QA systems than their counterparts from the mainland. Moving production to the mainland enabled Taiwan makers to cut off US$2 to US$3 from the costs of each finished unit.
