Shanghai Spark Industrial Park (Shanghai Spark IP), set up in 1984, covers an area of 16.8 sq km. One of the oldest industrial parks in Shanghai, the park is an export-oriented industrial development zone. In 1984, it was approved as a municipal-level development zone by the Shanghai municipal government.

Shanghai Spark IP is situated in Pudong New Area in a southern suburb of Shanghai on the northern shore of Hangzhou Bay. Shanghai Hongqiao Airport and Shanghai Pudong International Airport are located 52 km and 50 km away from the zone, respectively. Haiwan Station of Pudong Railway is located in the park. Shanghai Port, the largest port in China by container traffic in 2013, is 30 km away. The Shanghai-Nanjing Expressway and the Shanghai-Hangzhou Expressway go through the zone.
