After years of fast expansion and building up mobile phone production lines with a huge number of money, some local OEM manufactures from the southern part of China are realizing that the market is hitting saturation and need to lower their price points just to remain competitive.
It's seemingly that the situation of these local OEM factories is not cheerful. News from ZDnet years ago indicates, some of OEM manufacturers from Shenzhen and Dongguan, in which China's OEM businesses are commonly located, were competing for orders in very low price even if the profit is to null.
ZDnet took an example: One OEM factory owner, surnamed Li, told Guangzhou Daily in a report the gross margin previously for manufacturing a feature phone priced at 200 yuan (US$32.6) was at least 2 percent. These days, though, if the order is huge, he said he was willing to lower his profit to only 1 percent to secure the order. In spite of this, Li last month failed to obtain an order from Vietnam. This contract, for the production of 400,000 mobile phones, was awarded to his competitors in Shenzhen which offered a deal that gave them earnings of only 0.02 yuan (0.3 US cent) for each mobile phone manufactured, or US$120,000 for the whole production.
The case in the news report might happen from time to time: two or more OEM factories competed for one order and only one got this order at a lowest price and nearly earned nothing from this order, only to pay the cost of the mobile phone production line and labor, to keep up with the company's daily operation, then waited for another chance.
In order to change this situation to get more orders, the OEM manufacturers needs to find ways to enhance the market performance and reduce production cost. Besides the intercompany methods to improve their own competitiveness to compete with foreign brands, the exterior environment and platform might be more helpful.
