The Rise of the Coronavirus pandemic has changed the entire world. It is right to say the coronavirus outbreak has placed the world of China upside down. The outbreak may come up as a black era for the entire world. But, it might have unveiled the true faces of China in front of the entire world. This pandemic has also come up as a revolutionary phase for China’s growth and economy, as most of the countries are not boycotting China for its contaminated intentions.
When it comes to figuring out the best manufacturer of goods in Asia, China and India always come first to everyone’s mind. With dynamic manufacturing abilities and unique skills, both countries have their own weaknesses and strengths. However, specific factors are there to consider when it comes to choosing the best manufacturer overseas. Nowadays, anti-China sentiments are on the rise not in India but also in many countries.
Before calling to boycott China-made goods, you should be familiar with oodles of factors that help you find the right substitute for Chinese products. This way finding the best local alternatives will never be tough in the long run. To determine what are the best Indian Goods or Chinese Goods, here are some factors you should keep in mind.
Indian Goods Are Better for Certain Reasons
Certainly, there is something good about Indian goods. When it comes to adapting better products, Indian goods are definitely worth considering. Before making a switch, you should check out certain things. Have a glance at certain reasons why Indian goods are better.
1- Raw Material Control
Factories are sticklers about certifying, testing and retesting to check the quality of raw material. They count on raw materials with exceptional quality. Raw material inspection has become a trend in the Indian market. In fact, manufacturers are more concerned about the quality not only for manufactured goods but also for raw materials used for manufacturing the products.
2 – Quality Equipment
Indian Factories are equipped with Japanese machines that accomplish the demand for quality equipment to produce better products. With world-class manufacturing tools and machines, India is doing well in production with its engineering resources. Technology has been taking the foremost priority in Indian society. Instead of relying on poor equipment, the Indian marketplace is emerging with Japanese machines that come with excellence in terms of quality.
3 – Convenient Transportation
Indian supply chain is improving with each passing day. With convenient transportation options, Indian goods can be produced and carried easily anywhere in the world. Despite having a large population, India has a myriad of options to enhance its transportation services. The convenient transportation options help Indian society to grow tremendously.
Chinese Goods Are More Like Gold-Plated Iron
Of course, nobody likes to be fooled by alluring packaging and out cover of the products until the quality is actually good. Chinese goods might be manufactured with innovative skills and techniques. But, China-made products are usually like a gold plated iron bar. To get an in-depth view, check out how Chinese goods are not as good as they look.
1– Mass Productivity with No Guarantee
China is more capable of producing goods in abundance. It puts more emphasis on quantity than quality. But, it never guarantees the products. Mass productions are good when the quality is guaranteed. Producing hazardous products with materials of poor quality is never as good as you may think for you. On top of this, they come with no guarantee at all.
2 – Ability to Attract New Customers
China focuses on producing products with different features to attract new customers. It knows how to attract prospective customers. China focuses on innovation to make goods alluring. They spend more on advertisement and attract customers toward their production.
3 – Competitive Pricing
China never considers quality over quantity. This is why China is capable of producing cost-effective products. It does not afford to spend on quality but it focuses on product innovation. When quality is neglected and mass production is considered, products will automatically cost low. They have competitive prices and bring you products at as cheap prices as possible.

Why Can’t Chinese Goods Beat India-Made Goods?
China may focus on quantity but Indian goods can’t be beaten for their exceptional quality. India has unmatched strategies for producing goods that do not harm consumers in any way. Unlike India, China strives to impress customers with its low-quality materials. For instance, China-made crackers have Sulfur that is not just dangerous but also creates pollution. The toys made in China have low quality and don’t last longer while Indian products are made of good quality and bring you value for money. Due to the cheap costs, China is capable of attracting consumers. However, it never takes human health and the environment into consideration just like India does.
Value of the Indian import from China
|Products||2018-19 (Rs.cr)||2017-18 (Rs.cr)|
|Iron and steel items||12165||9497|
|optical and medical instruments||11108||10718|
|Vehicle and accessories||10636||9371|
|Iron and steel||9950||10445|
|Other chemical products||8994||8692|
No matter what makes Chinese goods alluring, they just can’t beat the products made in India. These unsafe Chinese products can’t replace Indian products in the world. On top of this, the vulnerable quality of Chinese products insists people boycott it and make a switch to Indian goods. After all, nothing is more precious than health and the environment.
