Sensor availability in the PRC

My lab has a visiting scholar from China who's interested in potentially conducting acoustic monitoring work once he returns home next year. It seems like most of the major manufacturers have pretty massive markup to ship to the PRC (he's mentioned finding SM4s for 3200USD), so my next recommendation was to find somebody who can do PCB manufacturing and make his own audiomoths but I'm wondering if there are any other options in the Chinese market that anyone is aware of.
