Jul 27, 2018

The United States was the first country to develop and produce artificial man-made lawns. since the 1960s, it has been dedicated to the research and development through their continuous promotion, other countries have gradually accepted man-made lawns in the 1980s. The artificial grass originally used was polypropylene grass fiber, which was mainly used in hockey field.
With the popularization of artificial grass in Europe and America, China began to introduce artificial grass in the mid - 1990s, which was soon accepted by various sports organizations and developed rapidly, thus opening the prelude to the development of artificial grass industry in China. With the rapid promotion and use of sports artificial grass in China, a large number of foreign artificial grass brands have entered the Chinese market in succession. under this environment, domestic national enterprises integrating production and sales of artificial grass have gradually emerged through powerful foreign equipment and technical support and the establishment of large-scale modern production bases.

Due to its excellent characteristics, artificial turf has developed rapidly in China. although its popularity in China is 10 years later than that in Europe, users accepted it in a very short period of time. In 1990, there were only nearly 10,000 square meters of artificial lawn sports grounds in our country. the application area increased to 500,000 square meters in the two years from 1997 to 1999, and the application area rapidly developed to 1.5 million square meters in 2000 - 2001. From 2002 to 2003, the application area reached more than 3 million square meters. its development curve was the same as that of plastic runways and soon became the new standard for school sports venues together with plastic runways. Taking Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and other major cities as the guide, the education and sports departments of the government have formulated plans to vigorously promote artificial lawns. In addition to schools, many professional sports centers in our country, such as Beijing's xiannong altar, dongdan, Ditan and Chaoyang, have successively used artificial lawns as their main sports grounds.
