China is the biggest consumer of automotive seating in the world, but its market is dominated by foreign brands like Adient, Lear, Faurecia, Toyota Boshoku and TS. Targeting medium- and high-end markets, these foreign players make a layout in China by setting up joint factories with local companies, while Chinese automotive seating brands only concentrate on the low-end market due to a technology gap with joint ventures or overseas peers. 

In China, automakers co-built by Chinese companies with European, American, Japanese and Korean auto manufacturers, use seats from foreign or joint factories; a majority of Chinese auto brands also choose joint ventures as their suppliers; Great Wall, BYD, Chery and Geely adopts a combination model of local manufacturers and joint venture brands. In October 2017, BYD branched out its seating business and founded a new company with Faurecia in Shenzhen.

It will use seats produced by the new factory in the future. 

In the coming years, foreign seating brands and joint ventures will grab a larger market share as upgrading of consumer demand requires improvement of intelligence and comfort technologies; Chinese seating makers will firmly evolve into joint ventures for supporting upgrade and edge into the supply chains of mainstream automakers, through technological breakthroughs.
