China’s growing middle class, rapid urbanization, and increasing income is likely to present immense opportunities for growth, and the Chinese economy is expected to reach an estimated $13.6 trillion by 2017 with a CAGR of 11% from 2012-2017.

Lucintel, a leading global management consulting and market research firm, has analyzed investment opportunities in China and presents its findings in “Investment Opportunities in China 2012-2017: Country and City Analysis.”

The manufacturing sector of China was the major contributor in economic growth, followed by the service sector and agriculture in 2011. China has rapidly growing urban areas, which based on current economic trends, will see even greater demand for urban infrastructure, real estate, and services. In 2011, the top 20 cities of China contributed 35% of the nation’s GDP. The metropolitan cities of China are equipped with much untapped potential to continue contributing significantly to the national GDP. Major factors such as location, stage of development, industrial base, demographics, literacy rate, and local and national policies in those metro areas set the conditions for higher economic performance.

Lucintel’s research indicates that China’s rapidly growing economy still holds huge potential. Government stability is a major strength for the Chinese economy because the decision-making process is streamlined compared to other countries. Quick implementation of policies helps reduce the obstacles to economic growth. China’s major strengths will bolster its next phase of sustainable development.
