My two cents on the subject
Logic speaks: for a Chinese product to penetrate foreign markets and compete with others name brands first time, my thinking is that this Chinese product have to be very very competitive. For this product to sell, the per unut cost of Chinese product thus, must have a price tag no more than a quarter (1/4) that of the price tag of any name brand of its equivalence in the market otherwise it would be a no sell for the Chinese as is with the case with Hyndai and KIA.
Example: if the Chinese tries to unload a BMW-knockoff, lets call it a M-WB for reference and for fun sakes, at the very same price as the real deal, the true and recognized name brand, BMW, naturally have the advantage over a replicated specimen - even if everything is exact same or superior in some cases.
Even at 1/2 the price of the real deal, this M-WB would still be in a disadvantage because its new and unrecognized. Therefore, The M-WB will need to reach its maturity as in the case of Hyundai and KIA for the consumer to want to invest in it.
China, thus, must target the lower end narket to sell its product and that means price tags @fraction (1/4) that of the name brands in the market.
This is to say, where China's defense budget is a quater that of the US budget, given the different variables between US and Chinese production costs, the equation should equate and everything should be relative.
