Although China’s sixth largest component maker, ASIMCO, reported that overseas sales accounted for 30 per cent of their revenue, it is reckoned that barely 15 per cent of domestic manufacturers export more than onequarter of their output. Nevertheless, the volume of exports is increasing rapidly. Chinese shipments to the USA accounted for less than 5 per cent of America’s bill for component imports in 2004, but the value of that trade grew by a massive 45 per cent in the following six months. Both Ford and GM have committed themselves to a substantial increase in sourcing from China.
