However, 70%-90% of the domestic high-end machine market is occupied by Japanese and German companies. On the middle and low-end sewing machine products, the world sewing machine industry has completed the transfer to China, and the industrial transfer has gradually extended to medium and high-end products.

The earliest sewing machine that can be found today is the advertisement for the Chinese market. On December 14, 1872, the "Declaration" published a notice of the sale of ready-made clothing for Jinlongyang. The notice said: "There are several new sewing machines for foreign countries, each with a price of 50 two. If you want to buy, please come to the Bank to contact." At that time, the foreign dealership was sold by American Shengjia Company (then called Singer Company).

Wang Hao, a famous modern thinker and political commentator, once described this machine. At that time, his neighbor was an American, and there was a Shengjia sewing machine in his home. In 1875, Wang Wei wrote: "There is a unique sewing machine in the West, and the needle is wonderful, and it is very beautiful. There is a copper plate. The wings are double-winged, and the iron wheel is placed under the needle. The foot is made of wood, the wheel rotates, and the hand is sturdy, and the fine needle is tight, and it is long and long."

Around 1880, Shengjia Company established Shanghai Feng Company in Nanjing Road, Shanghai (now No. 446 Nanjing East Road). In order to promote the products, the company hired Chinese women workers with higher compensation. After training, they were brought along the sewing machine to perform the sewing machine operation method. Soon, the sewing machine became a well-known advanced garment machine in Shanghai.
