Author:GSW Committee  Updated:2017-01-19 16:01:15 Clicks:

China is not yet one of the biggest consumers of smart toilets, but it is definitely one of the biggest exporters. According to a survey conducted by China Household Electrical Appliance Association (CHEAA), in 2015 China in total manufactured 3.4 million smart toilets, about 40% of which were shipped to Japan and a small part to Europe and North America. It has even been reported by China Daily that nearly 50% smart toilets in the Japanese market are actually made in China.

Chinas Flourishing Smart Toilet Industry

Considering China’s sanitary ware industry only has a history of dozens of years, it is really a remarkable achievement. Statistics show that by the end of 2015, there were about 200 smart toilet manufacturers in China, most of whom were located in Guangdong, Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Hebei, Fujian, etc. With a solid foundation for the production of electronic devices, sanitary wares, and household electrical appliances, in the last few years China’s smart toilet industry has improved its production capacity to 4.8 million pieces per year.

 

Chinese Enterprises Endeavor for Technological Innovation  

China’s smart toilets did not earn the supports of international consumers with merely quantity, but also with their quality and technological innovation. For example, in Nan’an City, a major sanitary ware production base in China, 25 sanitary ware enterprises with smart toilet business have altogether gained over 320 patents in this field. And in order to better meet the need of Chinese consumers, HEGII, one of the top 10 Chinese sanitary ware brands with over 170 patents, has developed smart toilets that can be heated instantly with running water, efficiently conserving resources and improving users’ experience.

Government Urging Improvement on Quality

Now with the Chinese government urging domestic enterprises to shift “Made in China” to “Created in China”, the quality of China’s smart toilets is being enhanced by leaps and bounds. Respectively in last April and May, the Chinese government released 2 important documents regarding the improvement of product quality, and smart toilets were listed as one of the key items. Later in last October, the result of a spot check conducted by General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of PRC showed that the pass rate of smart toilets increased to 82.4%, up by 22.4 percentage points compared with 2015. And Guangdong had the highest pass rate of 95.8%, up by 8.8 percentage points. What’s more, in an attempt to bring this good news to Chinese consumers that China’s smart toilets have made a striking improvement, a TV program of CCTV especially shot an episode to make a comparison between domestic and imported smart toilets and proved that China’s smart toilets of mainstream brands were not second to those oversea.
