Container industry in China

China's container industry started in the late 1970s and early 1980s. After 20 years' development the annual production capacity is approximately 5.8 million TEU which is 145 times as large as 20 years before, accounting for over 96% of world's production capacity.

China's container industry has made three world's records since 1993, namely:

  • container manufacturing capacity,
  • container types and
  • size as well as container sales which have ranked the world's first for fifteen continuous years (1993-2008).


With the requirements of the international ISO containers (international standard) and non-ISO containers made in China are nearly all exported to other countries. The international market share of China's containers is getting larger and there have been various products released since 1993. The product structure was very simple at the beginning, but now it has various products for special purposes including many cargo containers such as warm-keeping containers, pot containers and dry bulk cargo containers, regional special containers and semi-trailer containers and so on. Altogether it has about 900 types with different sizes which can meet the needs of customers all over the world.
