Analysis of domestic cutting tool Market
China's cutting tool market before the "decisive battle"
As a high-end mechanical product which reflects the comprehensive strength of an enterprise or even a country, automobile is still a luxury for China, which was not developed and rich ten years ago. But as China's per capita GDP reaches the $1,000 threshold, car production and sales in China's auto market have been growing at eye-catching double-digit rates in the last five years. In 2003, China's automobile production and sales reached 4.4 million, becoming the world's fourth largest automobile producer and third largest automobile sales market after the United States, Japan and Germany. The brand-new and full of great potential market attracted the world's major automobile enterprises in various forms of competition to enter, red-eyed giants shouted "decisive battle China" A loud slogan.
The decisive battle of automobiles is based on China's huge population and people's increasingly affluent life. The rapid development of CNC machine tools and cutting tools occurred in the context of China's sustained economic development and the relocation of production bases to China by major industrial powers. From January to July 2004, China imported 3.3 billion US dollars of machine tools and cutting tools, an increase of 58% over the previous year. According to the survey report of the International Metal Processing Research Center, the world tool market sales in 2003 was about 13 billion US dollars, while the global annual growth rate was only about 3%. At a time of widespread weakness in the European and American markets, such a dazzling growth rate and market prospects in China also make foreign "big crocodiles" eyes, I believe in the next three to five years, "big crocodiles" fight China's slogan will also be heard in the field of Chinese machinery manufacturing.
