|Abrasiveness of machine tool industry rebounded sharply|
|Release time: 2017-2-20|
| Since last year, the machine tool market has continued to heat up, the competitiveness of domestic machine tools has continued to increase, the local market share has further expanded, and the industry has gradually picked up. In the context of escalating market demand, Chinese enterprises have proactively adapted to the market, exerted their efforts in the mid-to-high end, and achieved product structure adjustments. In the future, domestic machine tools should also catch up in the high-end field and accelerate the pace of research and development and innovation. |
According to the latest data from China Machine Tool Industry Association, the prosperity index of China's machine tool industry in 2016 was 53.9%, a sharp rise of 19.4 percentage points from the previous year, reflecting the upward trend of industry operation.
"Since the fourth quarter of last year, the market for machine tool industry has gradually stabilized, and a series of positive changes have brought warmth and confidence to the development of the industry." When said. Despite the promising prospects, the pressure on the overall transformation of the industry is still increasing, and companies in the industry must accelerate the restructuring of competitiveness, and actively match and adapt to the constantly changing and changing demand market.
Significant improvement in main indicators
Since 2011, the machine tool industry has entered a downward path. The prosperity of the industry rebounded sharply in 2016, thanks to the significant improvement of the industry's main economic indicators. The total domestic machine tool consumption in 2016 reached 27.5 billion U.S. dollars, flat year-on-year, ending a continuous decline since 2011. At the same time, the industry output showed a recoverable growth, reaching 22.9 billion U.S. dollars, an increase of 3.6% year-on-year, and turned from negative to positive.
"It is worth mentioning that the domestic machine tool's share in the local market continues to increase, reaching 72.7%. This shows that the market competitiveness of China's machine tool industry is constantly improving, which is the result of the industry's accelerated transformation and upgrading in recent years." Chen Huiren said. As the world's largest machine tool producer and consumer country, the Chinese market is the focus of the layout of international industry giants. In such a highly competitive and fierce market, 72.7% of the market share is hard to come by.
With the slowdown of China's economic growth and the continuous deepening of structural adjustment, the market demand of China's machine tool industry has also changed significantly, the total demand has significantly decreased, and the new structure of the market has accelerated the upgrading of new features. The main direction of the upgrade of the demand structure can be summarized into three aspects, namely, automated complete sets, customized customization and universal shift upgrade.
Demand upgrades inevitably require new features of machine tool products. "High efficiency, precision, and compounding are trends that have lasted for many years. On the basis of the past two years, there have been new features, that is, intelligence and greenness." Said Wang Liming, executive vice chairman of China Machine Tool Industry Association.
Significantly accelerated transformation
In 2016, the state of the machine tool industry rebounded at a low level, but the development of the industry was clearly differentiated. On the one hand, segmented products are severely differentiated. Among them, the numerical control equipment and functional components have the highest degree of prosperity, 68.4%; metal forming machine tools rank second, with 61.8%; metal cutting machine tools rank 51.3%, ranking third; measuring tools and abrasive tools are at the level of honor. Down, only 43.9%. In this regard, the analysis of the association personnel pointed out that, driven by the recovery of market demand, the host machine showed a warming up trend, but the measuring tools and abrasive tools were still in the predicament of structural adjustment and showed a weak state of operation.
On the other hand, the polarization of enterprise development is more obvious. Facing the continuous decline of the machine tool market for many years, in 2016, some companies experienced operational difficulties, bankruptcy and restructuring, and the entire industry suffered a loss of 45%. However, many companies have bucked the trend and achieved remarkable results in transformation and upgrading. They have made good achievements in key areas such as automobiles and aerospace, and have achieved import substitution to a certain extent. For example, Dalian Kede has obtained orders for more than 20 five-axis machining centers in the aerospace field, and Pushiningjiang's automatic line products have also won in the aerospace field. In addition, the quality of domestic machine tools is also continuously improved. Nanjing Craft and Yichang Changji have been awarded the "Top Ten Quality" by the China Machine Tool Industry Association for three consecutive years, and their reliability has been recognized by users.
