Since 2009, China’s machine tool main export markets such as Europe, America, Japan and other economically developed body of the sharp drop in demand by the international financial crisis, last year, rising faster in India, Brazil, Russia’s machine tool market is a double-digit slow-down. In the first half-year total exports of machine tools by the end of last year 37.1% to -31.3%, which is in a continuous sharp decline after years of rapid growth. But with South Korea, Malaysia, Myanmar, represented by Mexico and other regions in Asia and the 1 ~ June exports, compared with the same period in 2008 is not only not declined, but rising, exports are a positive growth year on year, accounting for total exports of metalworking machine tools share of more than 2008 over the same period increased by 1 percentage points. And exports increased in varying degrees rankings, South Korea from last year’s first 8-bit to upgrade to the first three, Malaysia from 2008’s first 14-bit up to the first six. Worth noting is that China’s Republic of Korea, Myanmar, Turkey’s exports doubled processing center, respectively, column 1 in June of the top three export processing center, while the same period last year, exports of these three countries are all ranked In the 15-bit later, while its average export price is higher than the average export price of the machining center more than doubled. Look at the current situation, ASEAN and other regions there are great opportunities, we must firmly grasp; India, Brazil, Russia and other markets, while declining, but still higher than 2007 levels, it should be our focus. In the first half gantry machining center, CNC milling machine, CNC gantry milling machine, CNC surface grinding machine, CNC gear cutting machine tool exports were more than 50%, becoming the main export growth. Enterprises should adopt market diversification strategy, optimizing product mix, and tap potential markets, and strive to expand exports.
In the first half of China’s machine tool imports in the top 10 in possession of three seats in Asia (Japan, China Taiwan, South Korea), Europe accounted for 6 seats (Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, France and Spain), there is a seat the United States. China’s imports from Asia and the United States of machine tools are based on double-digit rate of decline, but as the representative of Germany’s European camp, in the first half of China’s machine tool imports are a positive growth year on year growth, with the exception of Switzerland, the rate of increase higher than 20%, and the average price is generally higher than the overall level. According to the European Machine Tool Industry Cooperation Committee (CECIMO) recently released news that the prospects for the manufacturing industry in Europe is still grim, hope that, through upgrading of export markets to maintain investment in new machine tools, their first hopes on China and India. Chinese machine tool market is still the focus of world attention, the European machine tool imports rose, reflecting the market demand changes in the structure.
