China has enjoyed 30 years of explosive growth; it is the second largest economy in the world and has claimed the top spot in a number of important economic league tables. With building and construction industry being a major component of its economy, China has undertaken a colossal amount of projects that have become the foundation of the country’s modern urban development.

The growth of the building and construction industry as well as improvements in financial conditions in the region has led to the increase in demand for precast concrete elements.
