The prosperity of construction market has effectively promoted the development of building decoration industry in recent years. In 2013, total output value of China's building decoration industry climbed 12.9% YoY to roughly RMB2.97 trillion, 8-10% of which came from the construction curtain wall industry, an important branch of building decoration industry.
After more than 20 years of development, China has become the world's largest curtain wall producer, with construction curtain wall production approximating 115 million square meters (a year-on-year increase of 15%) in 2013. With the rapid process of urbanization in China, a considerable number of large public buildings, commercial buildings and high-grade residences have sprung up, which triggers rapid growth in demand for construction curtain wall. In 2013, commercial buildings boasted the largest share of China's total consumption of curtain wall, accounting for about 66.8%, followed by public buildings, and high-grade residence occupied the smallest proportion of approximately 3.1%.
China's construction curtain wall enterprises are mainly distributed in the economically developed, highly urbanized Yangtze River Delta, Pearl River Delta and Bohai Economic Rim. However, following China's coastal economic slowdown as well as the implementation of Mid-western Development, Northeastern Old Industrial Base Revitalization and other strategies, there is a general trend towards the three economic outsiders in domestic curtain wall market. Based on the regional distribution of top 50 Chinese enterprises in 2013, the number of enterprises in East China was reduced by 3 to 23, while Northeast and Central China saw increases of 2 and 1, respectively.
Currently, the Chinese construction curtain wall market has established the "large enterprises-based, SME (small and medium-sized enterprises)-supplemented" pattern, of which, Yuanda China, Jangho Curtain Wall, AVIC Sanxin, China Fangda Group, Gold Mantis and YASHA serve as benchmarking enterprises. In 2013, Jangho Curtain Wall reached bid amount of RMB21.7 billion, showing a year-on-year increase of 49% (including RMB8 billion from decoration orders); new orders signed by China Fangda Group climbed 36% YoY to RMB2.84 billion (curtain wall system and material industry contributed RMB2.4 billion, up 26.9% YoY); Gold Mantis gained new orders of RMB24.24 billion, showing a year-on-year increase of 41%
