Report Overview

Toys and games suppliers in China foresee a difficult year ahead, with both internal and external pressures hampering export growth.

Shipments during the 10 months from January 2011 were valued at $9.1 billion, only 8 percent higher than the previous corresponding period. Annual figures are projected to peak at $11 billion, rising 10 percent YoY. The rate of increase, which reached 30 percent in 2010, is significantly lower.

Sluggish overseas sales are predicted to continue in coming months, especially as many countries in the West have not yet rebounded from the debt crisis. Despite the bleak outlook, businesses will carry on with product improvement efforts. This is not only to attract orders but also to meet stricter safety standards.

This report covers the major products of China's toys and games industry, namely action figures, dolls and accessories, puppets, arts and crafts, play vehicles, and stuffed, outdoor, sports, electronic, infant, educational and developmental toys.

Methodology - Learn how we gather exclusive supplier information

China Sourcing Reports

- To produce these reports, we interviewed a wide range of companies. Rather than focus on high-profile makers, we compiled a representative sample of large, midsize and emerging manufacturers. All profiled companies are export-oriented professional suppliers that are verified by us. Each supplier is confirmed to be authentic with a legally registered business.
- Although mainland China is the focus of coverage, suppliers from Taiwan, Hong Kong, and South Korea have been included in reports where production has not shifted primarily to the mainland.
- For each company profile, our research teams interviewed senior executives and export managers who discussed their recent performance, and production and export capability. The interviews were done by phone or e-mail.
- In each case, companies were required to answer specific questions designed to verify their manufacturing and export credentials, including a breakdown of exports by product type and market.
- All suppliers were asked to participate in a survey designed to provide insight into price trends, sales outlook, target markets and challenges in the next 6 to 12 months. These are discussed in the Supplier Survey section in each report.
- A product gallery containing images and detailed descriptions of a range of top-selling products from profiled suppliers is also included.

Developing Country Sourcing Reports

- The Developing Country Sourcing Report series is part of Global Sources' corporate social responsibility initiatives. It is offered in conjunction with the Hinrich Foundation, whose mission is promoting sustainable global trade. One of its objectives is to help create jobs in developing Asia through export promotion.
- The series covers several emerging economies in Asia, including Vietnam, Indonesia, the Philippines, India, Cambodia, Nepal and Myanmar. It is designed to provide buyers with information on new products from export manufacturers that specialize in handmade merchandise.
- To produce this report, large midsize and small manufacturers, all with substantial export experience, were surveyed. The selection of suppliers is designed to reflect the composition of the industry in the country of coverage in terms of geographic location, materials used and range of products offered.
- For in-depth profiles, our researchers visited the facilities of each company and interviewed senior executives who discussed their recent performance and provided forecasts for the next 12 months. All other makers were either visited or contacted by phone.
- In each case, companies were required to answer specific questions designed to verify their manufacturing and export credentials, including a breakdown of exports by product type and market. Suppliers also participated in a survey aimed at providing insight into price trends, sales outlook, target markets and challenges.
