Now, my friend, I'd like to share with you my knowledge about Yiwu bags and cases market. Here we go:

Bags and cases market is one of the biggest markets in Yiwu. Over 2,400 shops sit on the first floor of district 2, Yiwu International Trade City . 100+ factory outlets centers for bags and cases are also located on 4th floor of the same building.

Variety is, again, beyond your imagination. Lady's handbags, kid's school pulling cases, men's wallets, cosmetics cases, gift bags, messenger bags, shopping bags... as well as many kinds of plastic bags and paper bags.

Brands cover a wide range from global brands, to China top brands, to local top brands, then local small brands, then non-brands.

It's a kind of like: Want global genuine brands? Yiwu has just a few; Want China top brands? Yiwu has many; Want small brands and non-brands? Yiwu has tons of; Want fake and counterfeit? No problem.

Here is a short video:

Suppliers in this market are from all famous bags and cases producing areas of China. Like Guangzhou, Baigou in Hebei province, Shaodong in Hunan province, and Wenzhou in Zhejiang province.

About 72% of them are factory direct sale offices. Agents take a 27% percent, including a 6% percent of general agents and exclusive distributors.

As Yiwu is a good big market to compete and show strength. Many suppliers choose Yiwu market to put their new designs and offer favorable prices, to take a bigger piece of this huge cake.

Yiwu market is a paradise for buyers, but can be a hell for suppliers sometimes. Suppliers like the opportunities Yiwu market brings to them, but they hate Yiwu market for making their life tougher.

The old Yiwu bags and cases market are famous for low prices. But because of the worldwide financial crisis strike, many suppliers now start focusing more on quality and creativity.

The cheap crappy market is changing a bit now. I'll talk more about this in Featured Suppliers section at bottom of this page.
