At that time, the price is fairly high, only some government departments and famous universities could afford it.

Phase 2: Just import the fibers and do the tufting and coating in China

But artificial grass developed rapidly in China, like Chinese speed or Shenzhen speed. Local factories established from the year of 2000. Most of the factories imported synthetic yarns and do the following manufacturing processes (Mainly tufting and coating)in China. When completed the production, some used in local places and some exported aboard.

Phase 3: Fiber manufacturers grew in China

As the market growing and the technology developed, domestic yarn manufacturers appeared, and the cost of artificial grass manufacturing come down sharply, but problems come out at the same time. The local yarns proved not so good as the imported leading brands’ artificial grass yarns. The technology of fake grass yarn must be improved.
