A Chinese factory making vuvuzelas is having to increase production to keep up with huge demand during the World Cup. Chinese manufacturers say almost 90 per cent of the vuvuzelas used in South Africa are made in China.

The Ninghai Jiying plastics factory in the eastern Chinese coastal city of Ningbo is one such manufacturer raking in the profits from the vuvuzelas.

General manager Wu Yijun said he has been trying to market the vuvuzela for a long time, and South Africa's successful bid for the World Cup was the turning point for them.

“With regards to the production volume, from January to April this year, we were producing 250,000 vuvuzelas every day to fill containers that are exported from Ningbo port,” Wu said. “We were making 10,000 vuvuzelas a day.”
