If you are in the business of cell phone accessories, the chances are high that the names of Xidi’er markets in Guangzhou and Huaqiangbei markets in Shenzhen are not unfamiliar.
Xidi’er phone cases market VS Huaqiangbei phone cases market
Lots of friends have been asking me which market is the best.
In terms of scale and product range, Huaqiangbei market is the largest one with a diversity of mobile phone accessories.
In terms of price, the products made in Guangzhou are more competitive as the labor cost in Shenzhen is much higher than that in Guangzhou. Indeed, half of my domestic customers come from Shenzhen.
Markets with Stocks VS Markets that only accept orders
Nan Tai phone accessories market in Xi di er is the only market where almost all the stores have stocks. If you order, you can get the phone accessories immediately or no later than tomorrow.
Apart from Nantai wholesale market, most of the stores in the other markets in Xidi’er including New Asia Electronic Market, Nan fang building electronic market. Xinwenyuan electronic market, Xidi communication electronic market, etc. only accept orders. Seldom do they have stocks. The stores used to put some samples there, and accept orders.
PS: If you need large quantities of phone cases, then it is better to locate Chinese factories and manufacture your own brand. It is a waste of time wondering in the markets as about 80% of the stores are wholesalers, not factories. It needs intelligence and diligence to find out the 20% factories.
If you are at the beginning of your business, and need small quantity of cell phone cases, than the phone accessories wholesale markets in Guangzhou is a second to none option as many stores allow you mix and match.
It makes no sense going to the wholesale markets but it really worth if you want to get the latest trends in the industry and to establish some business relationship.
