The top three revenue generating end-user segments in the 3PL market in China are discussed below:
“The Chinese economy is shifting its focus from manufacturing sector to services sector. This move provides an opportunity for manufacturers to shift their strategy from manufacturing to sales and marketing. Labor-intensive manufacturing industries are actively shifting to lower cost locations and produce more innovative products that are designed especially tailor-made to suit the needs and demands of the Chinese consumers,” says Abhay Sinha, one of the lead analysts at Technavio for logistics research.
Additionally, government campaigns like “Made in China 2025” focuses on marking China as a global manufacturing hub that produces technologically advanced products. To accommodate major changes in the manufacturing sector, companies need to be efficient in shifting and upgrading their logistics supply to meet the changing demands in the region. This is expected to bring in demand for 3PL services from the manufacturing sector. Vendors are focusing on equipping themselves with high-quality logistics supply to maintain a competitive position in the industry.
The automotive industry in China is flourishing, with the country maintaining the top position globally for the sales of passenger vehicles. The automakers in China managed to sell an impressive 21.1 million new passenger cars in 2015 alone. With around 130 separate passenger car brands available in the market, Chinese consumers have the option of choosing from a variety of national and international brands. Additionally, international vendors are shifting their manufacturing bases to China to save on manufacturing costs.
With so many players present in the market, there is an intensely competitive atmosphere present, which has led to intense price wars. To keep the selling price at a low point, manufacturers have started utilizing efficient and cost-effective logistics service providers for their supply chain management (SCM) demands. With production and distribution centers witnessing expansion all over the country, the demand for 3PL from the automotive industry will only increase through the forecast period.
“The changing lifestyles and increase in disposable income have led to an increased demand for retail systems across China. The retail industry is expected to reach USD 6.4 trillion by 2020, with a majority of Chinese consumers looking for value-for-money products. Since e-retail provides one of the most attractive prices, it is quickly gaining popularity in the region. Additionally, with retailers expanding out of tier-1 cities, the demand for 3PL will increase,” says Abhay.
To improve customer relationship and create a loyal customer base, e-retailers are establishing efficient logistics services from source to destination, which ensures timely and accurate delivery of goods to the customers. Thus, the demand for 3PL services will increase from the retail industry.
