Machine tools are called "industrial machines". The level and capability of machine tool manufacturing in a country reflects to a large extent the level of industrial manufacturing in this country. China is a big manufacturing country, but the machine tool industry has always faced the dilemma of "big but not strong". In particular, in recent years, with the rapid and stable development of the national economy, the revitalization of the equipment manufacturing industry, the upgrading of the whole manufacturing technology and the demand for the modernization of national defense, with the rapid growth of investment in fixed assets, the machine tool market in our country has a trend of both production and demand. So since 2012, China's machine tool market has entered a period of adjustment. This process will continue for a long period of time, from a relatively short range, it should be over ten years. But from 2011-2011 years of machine tool industry market, although the appearance of Chinese machine tool industry seems to be very lively and prosperous, it is actually a virtual image.
It is reported that since 12th Five-Year, China's machine tool consumption has been a record, the total amount of machine tool consumption and the import volume of the mainland market have been the first in the world for 9 years. Especially in 2009 and 2010, output value has become the number one in the world, surpassing Germany and Japan. According to incomplete statistics, the consumption of machine tools in China's mainland market reached 13 billion 110 million US dollars in 2006, up about 20% from the same period, and the import of machine tools was 7 billion 240 million US dollars, up 11.55%, and the increase was 1.7 percentage points over the same period of last year. China's machine tool consumption accounts for more than 20% of the total sales of machine tools in the world. In the world, there are about 15% of Japan's machine tool consumption in two or three, four in Japan, 11.6% in the United States and 10.6% in Germany.
"In the first half of this year, under the impact of continuous weak market demand, the machine tool industry was running in a clear trend of inertia, the major economic indicators of the industry continued to decline, and the loss surface continued to expand." China Machine Tool Association executive vice director and Secretary General Chen Huiren said, "the biggest soft rib in China's machine tool industry is that the industrial structure is in the middle and low ends for a long time, slow to step up to the middle and high end."
At present, the operation of China's machine tool industry has the following characteristics: first, the export enterprises are facing greater difficulties. From the perspective of Enterprises above Designated Size, the development trend of domestic brand oriented enterprises is better. The development of small and medium sized enterprises without brand is more difficult. Two, the development of various regions is not balanced. Zhejiang, Shandong, Hebei, Beijing and Sichuan are developing fairly fast. Guangdong's private enterprises are developing fairly fast. The development of Northeast China is not very fast, and the development of other regions is relatively slow. The three is to adjust the structure to promote the transformation. In the face of the financial crisis, many enterprises constantly adjust the structure, improve the quality, increase the variety and promote the upgrading of the industry. In addition, the enterprises strengthen management and reduce the cost, so the enterprise benefit is obviously improved.
It is understood that the next few years will be the high-speed development and shock period of CNC machine tool industry. It is expected that the number of CNC machine tools that can survive in the market in the next few years is sharply reduced. But the high-speed vibration of the CNC machine industry will also bring great opportunities to make the operation of the market more rational and standardized.
