East China Locations Continue to Attract Attention for Investors

The October RightSite industrial zone Power Rankings show locations in Shanghai and Suzhou snatching eight out of the top twenty positions, as industrial investors continue to concentrate on these more developed locations in eastern China. However, many emerging cities, such as Ningbo, Kunshan and Nantong also made it to the top of the ranks.

The power rankings survey, which measures online traffic to information on more than 1,800 industrial zones and parks in China is designed to provide insights into what investors are searching for online and what industrial developments they devote the most attention to. While established destinations tend to generate the most interest, rising costs are causing more investors to look for alternate investment destinations, and Internet searches are usually their first tool in this site selection process.

October’s Big Winners

For the second month in a row, Suzhou Industrial Park sits on top of the rankings, and it is joined in the top ten by Suzhou Hitech Industrial Development Zone, showing the ongoing popularity of Suzhou with investors both international and domestic. If we are scoring projects by the developer, then Shanghai’s Lingang New City, Waigaoqiao Bonded Logistics Zone, and Shanghai Waigaoqiao Free Trade Zone – all of which are under the same management company – are perhaps the biggest single force on the charts, landing at #2, #5, and #16 respectively. Clearly, all that investment by the Shanghai government is generating interest on the Internet.

New to the Top 20

Joining the top of the ranks for the first time this month are Guangdong Foshan Shunde Industrial Zone, Kunshan German Industrial Park, Yangshan Free Trade Port Area, Qingdao High Tech Industrial Development Zone, Chengdu Tianfu Software Park, Jiangsu Xishan Economic Development Zone, Changzhou Hitech Industrial Development Zone, Shenzhen Futian Free Trade Zone, and Nordic Industrial Park.

Among these rapidly rising developments many of them are located in emerging cities whose governments have made strong commitments to attracting investment, or are in locations where they are poised to benefit from rising land and labour costs in more developed destinations in first-tier cities such as Shanghai or Guangzhou.

The detailed rankings are provided below including the zone’s rank this month, the rank last month and the total number of pageviews received. Among them, the top 20 parks on RightSite received a total of more than 4000 pageviews during the month of September.
