Research and Markets: China Sourcing Report: Health & Personal Care 2011

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/fce864/china_sourcing_rep) has announced the addition of the "China Sourcing Report: Health & Personal Care 2011" report to their offering.

China suppliers of health and personal care products are looking forward to stronger export sales in 2011. Attention is returning to the major markets of the US and the EU, where buyers are once again exhibiting strong interest in the line. This allows an output shift back to midrange and high-end designs, which often have advanced performance and safety features.

China suppliers of health and personal care products are looking forward to stronger export sales in 2011. Attention is returning to the major markets of the US and the EU, where buyers are once again exhibiting strong interest in the line. This allows an output shift back to midrange and high-end designs, which often have advanced performance and safety features.

Reinvigorated business in the US and the EU is in counterpoint to 2010 when companies emphasized shipments to Russia, Brazil and other nontraditional markets. In such destinations, low-end models typically dominate demand. As part of efforts to improve competitiveness, most companies will be performing various productimprovement steps. Many of these measures revolve around aesthetics, although a number are for performance or safety characteristics.

Expectations for overseas shipments in 2011 are generally positive, with nearly all suppliers of the different categories featured in this report foreseeing higher exports this year. In preparation for increased demand, a number of operations will be investing in additional production equipment or facilities and providing workers with training aimed at boosting output.

Rising material costs are proving to be the greatest challenge to the industry. Outlay for different plastic and metal types surged in 2010, and the trend expected to continue this year. Suppliers are also facing a labor shortage. The revaluation of the yuan is another significant difficulty.

Establishing relationships with material suppliers or purchasing in bulk for better rates is a common step to deal with rising expenditure. A number of operations are augmenting this strategy by enhancing manufacturing efficiency. Prices are expected to climb in the next six months as production costs rise. The majority of increases, however, will be held to a maximum of 10 percent as many suppliers prefer to let margins erode slightly instead of dampening export projections.

Makers will be exerting efforts to improve the aesthetics of their models for superior visual differentiation. Releases will boast a wider range of colors and utilize materials that give a better look. New models can comply with international quality standards as well.

This report focuses on the main health and personal care items exported from China breathalyzers, electric shavers, hair-styling appliances, massagers, stress toys, and toothbrushes.
