Demand for water treatment products – chemicals, equipment and suppliers – in China is projected to increase 14.1% per year to RMB 34 billion in 2010. For nearly every product and every market, growth will be faster in China than in any other industrialized nation. Filters and membranes, counted for RMB 20.4 billion Yuan, will be the fastest growing segments, although all types will see double-digit gains.

China’s great potential is due in large part to the continued economic expansion in China, which is currently unparalleled elsewhere in the world and creates growth in demand for industrial water treatment chemicals and other products.

Just as the world’s financial system faces the most severe crisis since WW-II China’s economy is reaching a level of maturity and strength that will give it a unique and central role in the future financial order.

Although it has shown that China is not decoupled from the rest of the world, the crisis represents more of an opportunity than a threat for China. There is good reason to believe China has significant comparative advantages over other economies that are trying to navigate clear of serious damage during the crisis and emerge in a position of strength.

With industrial land prices rising, building one’s own logistics facilities is too expensive for most manufacturers. The emergence of logistics parks, or designated areas for storage and distribution often built to compliment industrial zones, has brought a cheaper and more efficient option to the table - Bonded Logistics Parks (BLPs).

Wind energy is China’s renewable energy poster-child. The country has wind to spare along its coast and arid western and northeastern regions. It also has the world’s fifth-largest amount of installed wind power capacity. Nowadays, China is working very hard to reduce its dependence on coal, and looks to nuclear, hydro and wind, particularly, to replace it. Chinese wind turbine manufacturers are reporting booming business, and wind farms are mushrooming across the country.
