chinese products r cheap coz of their bad quaility and huge quantity.
their products are cheap because they sell their products in a very
huge quantity in the world. they use cheapest raw material to make
their product cheap to see. their life is very less. any one can
afford their products.
their industrial export policies r that they have to supply their
goods to all over the world . so that every poor man can also enjoy
and can buy thier product. they have a very goog technology for the
cheap products.
and the main reason is the name written on every product i.e.:MADE IN CHINA.

Of course, it started with shipping cheap/affordable products. But
now, it's sort of passed that period.
High aggregation of designing and manufacturing industries has made
some zones in China the most efficient and cost-effective areas for
manufacturing products in quantities, e.g. electronic products from
very low end to very high end.
China is just replicating the path of Japan's past development, but
it's far more sophisticated, since it's own has 1/5 of the population
on the global.
