With the increasing world population, rising disposable incomes and improvement in standards of living, construction and remodelling activities are anticipated to spur market demand for sanitary and bathroom accessories in the housing as well as hospitality sectors.
Owing to the strong growth in their economies, China, India, and Thailand and many others in Asia Pacific are now in great demand for more and better sanitary ware and bathroom fittings. Their people are eyeing premium and high-end products for their bathrooms due to stronger spending power and increasing lifestyle awareness.
In response to this huge market need, Asian Sanitary & Bathroom Accessories Show made its debut at the 2016 MEGA SHOW Part 2 to fully capture the business opportunities brought by the fast-growing demand in the region and across the global market. Last year it featured more than 40 experienced China-based suppliers (mainly from Ningbo, Shantao, Zhongshan and Huizhao) in the field.
We are expecting an even bigger line-up from China this October. One of the highlights is the first-time presence of a group participation led by the Kaiping Shuikou Sanitary Ware Association with about 10 premium enterprises from Shuikou County. Dubbed “China’s Faucets & Sanitary Ware Kingdom”, Shuikou has developed to become one of the most important manufacturing bases, as well as sourcing and export centres in China. Shuikao currently boasts a strong industry base of 500-plus large-scale sanitary ware enterprises, employing more than 50,000 people and selling to the world markets with over 160 self-own brands.
