Yiwu has a big modern furniture market. But from our experiences, this market is more for local market then overseas market. Furniture prices are not cheap because almost all suppliers are distributors, not manufacturers. So, Yiwu market is not really for big furniture.
Yiwu has a clothes market named “Huangyuan market” for clothes. However, as this market just opened in 2011. It’s still at its very beginning stage. Suppliers in this market also sell retail to local people. We had several customers there, but found many of the suppliers even didn’t know the right sizes for European market and South Africa market… So, Yiwu market is not really for clothes, at least for now.
Yiwu market has a section for electronic products like mobile phones and cameras. But variety, price and quality are not attractive at all to overseas buyers, compared with other places like Shenzhen, Dongguan… So, Yiwu market is not really for electronic products
Machinery and heavy equipments does not exist on Yiwu market at all. After all, Yiwu market is for “small commodities”
