The environmental analysis businesses are mostly occupied by government environmental monitoring stations in mainland China. However, socialization has already become the mainstream. The central government tends to push socialization, and no united management regulation has been announced yet. Only some local governments made it by themselves, including 6 provinces, 1 direct-controlled municipality, 2 Sub-provincial divisions and 2 prefecture-level cities. The present market for the socialized environmental analysis organizations is estimated to about 25 billion NT, and could grow to as high as 63~164.7 billion NT. The key is due to how much the government will to release to the market.
Although Cross-Strait Service Trade Agreement doesn’t open environmental analysis industry to Taiwan corporates, actually it is opened in practice. On the other side, opening to mainland China has positive influences to Taiwan, and almost no disturbance to the market scale. 39% companies of environmental analysis industry in Taiwan are interested in investing mainland China, and these provinces of Fujian, Guangdong and Guangxi are the favorite.
“The first cross-strait environmental monitoring (analysis) technology exchange symposium” was hold by this project and mainland China in Guangzhou City. We suggest holding the 2nd symposium in Taiwan next year. Being professional and good image is the niche of Taiwan environmental labs, so the suggestion 2 is to promote “Management Regulation of Environmental Analysis Laboratory”, and to convince mainland China for the opening of environmental analysis industry to Taiwan in publics, or at least open some area of mainland China. Suggestion 3 is to set the environmental analyst certification system, to protect the Taiwan environmental companies and environmental analysts from the negative effects by Cross-Strait Service Trade Agreement. The latest suggestion is to build the corporate image system of Taiwan analysis industry, which will highlight the justice and reliable image of Taiwan environmental analysis corporates.
