Shenzhen Electronics Wholesale Markets

A tour through the Huaqiangbei market, an extensive collection of wholesalers who are selling everything from iPhones to PCB. This is the place you come to figure out how your next gadget will get made, haggling with vendors who act as a front office for component suppliers and manufacturing facilities spread across China. Our guide was Jasmone Wei. As we roamed through the halls, she explained that the nature of the marketplace was evolving. It was still a place where merchants, inventors, and entrepreneurs come together to shop for components when they wanted to build a prototype. But increasingly the market was also the source of its own creations, spinning up new takes on hoverboards, drones, CCTV cameras and selfie sticks with unique modifications that might just prove to be the next big seller around the globe.

  Mobile smartphones, computers, gadgets, clone iPhone & iPad cases, and accessories. There are also several stores around here selling drones, and one dedicated to DJI drones and accessories with attractive prices on my last visit. Toy quadcopters are everywhere.

A Short Guide To Chinese Business Culture

The Chinese culture is considered the predominant civilization in East Asia. Chinese language, art, architecture, music, dance, literature, martial arts, cuisine, martial arts, philosophy, business etiquette, religion, politics, and history have a profound impact on the world, while its traditions and festivals also celebrated, introduced and practiced by millions of people around Asia.
Many businessmen coming to China, are Not sure how to handle the “different culture.
Here are few tips for newcomers

– In China, the questions "Have you eaten?" or "Where have you been?" are equivalent to the traditional question "How are you?" in the English-speaking culture. Therefore,  Simply answer "yes" if you have eaten - even if you haven't – or simply smile and say "thank you!".

– Chinese people are very vigilant about bold negative statements. For instance, negative answers are considered impolite, so use alternatives  "I'll try it", "maybe", "hope so") instead of a blunt "no".

Business Cards:
Make sure you have both a Mandarin and an English side of your business card.
, present your card with two hands, with the Chinese top up and facing the other person. Receive a card with two hands, study it briefly and place it into a business card holder — never your wallet or pocket. In China, business cards are treated as extensions of the person, so you'll need to handle any business card you receive with great respect.

Don't Point: It's considered rude to point with your finger. Instead, point with an open hand or, if possible, make eye contact and get someone's attention without using your hands at all.

A Chinese person feels deeply honored to either receive an invitation or invite a dignitary to a meeting or function. While at times appearing impromptu, the ceremony is integral to many of these events. Signing deals, formalizing contracts and the like are frequently carried out in casual surroundings such as restaurants or bars.

Please note, the Chinese government has been aggressive in launching various campaigns against bribery and corruption. However, corruption and bribery are still obstacles. It would be best to establish your reputation and avoid being involved in such conduct at the opening of the relationship.

Shenzhen International UAV Industry Expo

Chinas role in the market is still and for a while firmly located in the consumer drone area. Due to the prosperous lead of DJI to gain ground in the professional and commercial sector, China has an essential role in the industrial UAV deployment, e.g. to build up experience and capability for end-user solutions. Regarding the applied industry, the agriculture sector has the most significant growth rates and total plowshare of UAV applications. China is the biggest manufacturer and user of agriculture spraying UAVs.

DJI is the world's leader in the civilian drone and aerial imaging technology industry, accounting for 85% of the worldwide consumer drone market. Its drone technology has been used globally for the music, television and film industries,
A display titled the 5th Shenzhen International UAV  Expo that focuses on UAV industry was held in the city through June 23 to 27. About 200 manufacturers displayed more than 230 latest drones, hold fixed-wing drones, multi-propeller drones, and even airships.

In a specification of Shenzhen’s guidelines, small and light drones flying at low height cannot risk civil aviation safety as long as they are outside the clearance area of an airfield, within 10 kilometers away from both sides of the runway, and 20 from both ends. Thus, there is no need to set a no-fly zone in the above-mentioned areas. Actually, if all UAVs were forbidden within 20 kilometers from of both runways in some smaller cities, it would have huge impacts.

As UAV demand surges, it produces an ecosystem of industry participants who have technological, but not agricultural, backgrounds. New technical academies, for instance, are instruction enrollees how to exercise the flying devices, equipping them with expertise on government regulations, GPS programming, and data interpretation.

“Shenzhen had about 400 drone brands in 2017, and 20 percent of them exited the market last year. The consumer drone market is dominated by DJI and barely any of these drone manufacturers in Shenzhen raised new capital last year

According to a report by National Business Daily, there were over 400 drone makers and research firms in China as of December 2015. Of those, over 300 were based in Shenzhen, including the world’s largest drone maker DJI.

Recently, Shenzhen has become the world's drone capital. It has a 70 percent market share of the global consumer drone market with more than 300 companies dedicated to the unmanned aerial vehicle business alone, including DJI, the world's largest drone-maker. These companies are generating $3 billion in sales annually, according to Yang Jincai, director of Shenzhen UAV Industry Association.

Relying on the unmatched advantages of worldwide UAV industry base, Shenzhen has increasingly become the market benchmark of UAV industry. Shenzhen had drawn a plenty of renowned UAV corporation due to its business policy, which supplies immense support for the evolution of UAV industry, particularly for novel startups and private enterprises.
