SHANGHAI, Apr. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The output value of China's environmental industry by 2020 will exceed RMB 2.8 trillion (US$404.4 billion) with an average annual growth rate of above 15%. "As the structural reform continues to reshape China, the environmental industry will experience a robust boost and enter an M&A phase as investment floods in. This sector will need to further complete the industry chain, increase the cost-effectiveness and make vertical integration to address the profit-making pressure in a more mature market." said Zhao Lijun, head of China Environment Chamber of Commerce (CECC).
