There have been answers talking about manufactured products. In fact, China is known as the world’s production center. However, with the deepening of economic reform and development, the increase in material wealth will inevitably lead to a further appreciation of spiritual wealth. In recent years, many non-manufactured products have also begun to gain a good reputation and are widely accepted. Here are a few examples.
GenshinImpactis the most popular role-playing game in the world today, invested and produced by Mihoyo, a young unicorn company based in Shanghai. It has 25 million players around the world, and experience a magnificent journey in another world in the game. It’s monthly revenue is at least 200 million USD.
In fact, China occupies a leading position in the field of mobile games. Thanks to the advanced social foundation of mobile informatization, Chinese companies are leading the world in tapping the technology and consumption potential of mobile phones. At least half of the mobile games you are playing may be designed by Chinese companies or at least supported by Chinese capital.
I also noticed an interesting phenomenon. In the Internet community in the outside world like Reddit, anti-China is the norm. But in the Genshin community in Reddit, China has the status of a creator and a good reputation. This is the added value brought by cultural popular products.
The picture from Google was taken at the lantern festival in Hokkaido, Japan. But the chefs of this feast of light and color are not local Japanese companies, but from China. In Zigong City, Sichuan Province, China, lanterns are a major industry.
Zigong City is an unknown small city with a population of only 2.5 million, but the enterprises and technical workers here monopolize the design and manufacture of the world’s highest level of colored lights, with an annual output value of at least 300 million US dollars. No matter which country you are from, at least 70% of similar lanterns are entirely operated by Chinese from Zigong City.
In fact, for all celebration organizers, as long as they have a need for lantern products, Zigong lanterns are synonymous with quality and art.
DJI from Shenzhen, another young unicorn company, has rapidly emerged as the dominant player in the field of civilian drones in the past eight years. It monopolizes 85% of the global civilian drone market.
DJI not only masters the supply chain with the help of industrial cluster advantages, but also the most advanced software programming, aerodynamics and optical stabilization technology. Its products are often a whole generation ahead of its competitors, and the price is only 1/6 to 1/3. The Mavic 2 drone shown in the picture can be purchased for only US$150-200. It is a very good toy. At the same time, DJI also produces large-scale industrial and agricultural drones, and puts them in various fields. DJI’s dominant position in this field is unshakable: the evidence is that the US government is sanctioning DJI with the treatment of Huawei. This is the official certification from the enemy.
The above examples are from atypical industries. In the repeated slander and information suppression by the Western media, third-world countries like China are believed by the lords of developed countries that it is impossible to obtain a high-end position in the world value chain. Although their fallacy has no reliable evidence to support, it is only derived from the fantasy of Western centrism and racism.
These examples are just one aspect of China’s growing economic and industrial capabilities. In fact, as the core of the world value chain that actually provides products, believe me, China also provides many things that you haven’t noticed, but in fact you can’t leave it for a moment.
