The curtain of 19th China Shuitou International Stone Fair falls on 11 Nov. 2018. From official statistics, there will be more than 100 thousands of visitors come here.
But what I truly feel is opposite, visitors and exhibitors are becoming less since these three years and this year is a cliff drop. As one of yearly visitors, that's what I see and feel.
It's not difficult to find out the reason. Global economy depress and the chain reaction is trade war launched by Donald Trump.
China economic transformation calls for environmental protection. As a result, many domestic quarry are shutting down. First is from Fujian province, now the hot sell stone products
G603, G654, G664, G687, G635 G636 etc are gone. Then many inland provinces are shutting down environment polluting industries, stone quarries are shutting down continuously.
Even though the whole market is in depression, there are some new stone products come to the fore and leading the stone industry into new field.
As I can see, customization is the trend. Now let's welcome and see what are these new stone products.
