Industry Report - Starting a New Business Chapter

As this industry is closely connected to the national economy, the government has set strict requirements for entering the Aircraft Manufacturing industry in China. The majority of current players within the industry are state-owned, which makes it more difficult to enter this industry. The investment and technology levels of the industry are relatively high, which makes it even harder for the entry.

Opposed to other manufacturing industries, firms in this industry usually manufacture aircraft products after receiving an order. It is difficult for new entrants to survive, as the existing players dominate the market, making it difficult for new entrants to obtain a sufficient level of orders.
