BEIJING, May 6 (Xinhua) -- China's cleaning supply industry expanded rapidly over the past year, revealing great potential for the development of other sectors, according to the organizers of an industry expo.

Business revenues for China's biggest household product suppliers amounted to 146.61 billion yuan (23.29 billion U.S. dollars) last year, a year-on-year increase of 26.53 percent, according to the organizing committee of the three-day China International Cleaning Industry Expo, which began on Sunday.

Companies that make cleaning products for use in public and industrial facilities saw business revenues rise 25 percent year-on-year, the committee said.

The industry's technological development has played an important role in other sectors, the committee said, citing contributions to the new material and new energy sectors.

The expo, jointly held by the China Cleaning Industry Association and the light industry sub-council under the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, is aimed at promoting the use of environmentally friendly cleaning products and boosting the development of the industry.
