The RSL factory produces 36 million shuttlecocks annually, selling them to more than 60 countries and regions including Japan, the United Kingdom and Germany, with an annual production value reaching 150 million yuan.

Hu said the local government has built a factory of 40,000 square meters for their support, which has offered the space rent-free for the first three and a half years.

With production and revenue on the rise in recent years and thanks to the growing awareness of keeping fit among the Chinese consumers, Hu said they are planning to invest 150 million yuan to acquire the factory and to raise the production volume even higher each month.

Meanwhile, Hu said the factory has joined the local government to cultivate badminton in the county by building more badminton courts and providing equipment while setting up matches to invite more local residents to develop an interest in playing badminton.

According to Insight and Info's report on the badminton sector, about 250 million people have participated in badminton, with an annual growth rate of 6.25 percent in 2019, reaching a market value of 34.8 billion yuan.

He Zhiliang, a manager at the Guangzhou office of RSL, said the company's sales during the Singles Day shopping festival last November exceeded 1 million dozen, up about 20 percent year-on-year. The company, owned by the DTL Company in Hong Kong, has four major production plants on the Chinese mainland. They are in Jiangsu province, Guangdong province, Guizhou province and the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region.
