On February 18, 2019, the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and the State Council issued the ‘Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Development Plan’ where the Greater Bay Area will undergo green and low-carbon development with four major innovations, and there is the core competitiveness of Guangdong, Hong Kong, and Macao to build a world-class bay area. In the past ten years, the ceramic industry, which belongs to the manufacturing industry, has formed an industrial cluster advantage in the Greater Bay Area. However, the continuous economic downturn in the international market, coupled with anti-dumping and other trade barriers, has impeded the export of ceramic industry products, and the domestic overcapacity and environmental. Additionally, the pressure of pollution has forced the government to issue various industrial policies and environmental protection policies to guide the upgrading and the transfer of the ceramic industry. The arising internal and external problems are restricting the improvement of the green innovation performance of the ceramic industry cluster in the Greater Bay Area under high-quality development. This paper analyzes the key factors which are restricting the improvement of green innovation performance of ceramic industry clusters in the Greater Bay Area. Further, a specific improvement path and policies for the high-quality development of the ceramic industry in the Greater Bay Area were proposed in this paper.
