Copycat China hahaha. It’s a word that suits China with China’s tech scene over the past decade. And while the times of China’s most blatant copying – remember when Renren was called Xiaonei and it's exactly like Facebook? – are long gone, the so-called “Copy to China” model remains pretty prevalent within the country’s begin scene. And in fact , many Chinese internet companies also are engaged in copying each other!
Because they have already got the infrastructure to manufacture most of the things on the market.
When you have the infrastructure next step is to style them items which is that the process that takes most of the cash and time of a product life cycle.
So if you'll copy it from somebody else, who has already wasted his time and money to develop a product, you'll make more take advantage of an already established design.
There are some clever Chinese companies that they even go further and develop them existing designs for a far better product. Unfortunately most of the days they only alter the planning to save lots of manufacturing costs and magnify profit.
