The machine tool industry achieved rapid growth in 2010

although the annual operation data of China's machine tool industry in 2010 has not been released, it is certain that the total industrial output value of the whole industry will exceed 500billion yuan for the first time, and the year-on-year growth rate also surprised the experts of the association: more than 40%! Their estimate at the beginning of the year was 10-15%

wubolin, executive vice president of China Machine Tool Industry Association, told this newspaper: it was unexpected that the machine tool industry could achieve such achievements in the past year, but fortunately, we also know that the industry still faces many challenges in the post crisis era

: this kind of experimental machine has adopted the computer automatic control system. In view of the development achievements of the machine tool industry in 2010, the blowout slowed down in the first half and the second half of 2011. According to the statistics of the marketing department of the association, by the end of October 2010, the machine tool industry had achieved a total industrial output value of 437.6 billion yuan and a sales revenue of 425.7 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 41%. It is estimated that in 2010, the total industrial output value will be 530billion yuan, with a growth rate of 33% to 35%. In the first ten months of 2010, the export value of machine tools in the whole industry was US $5.6 billion, a year-on-year increase of 48%; The value of imported machine tools was US $12.3 billion, a year-on-year increase of 56%

wubolin believes that the so-called blowout growth in the first five months of 2010 is the main reason for the unexpected growth of the whole year. In addition, the industry has done a lot of work and made remarkable achievements in scientific and technological innovation, product development, structural adjustment, service level improvement, talent training, etc. The work in 2010 has laid a solid foundation for the machine tool industry to meet the post crisis era and a more active change. This is not only the result of the joint efforts of the whole industry, but also the result of the implementation of the national package plan for coping with the financial crisis

in the face of the financial crisis, the machine tool industry is not only driven by the market forcing mechanism, but also driven by the implementation of major special projects. Enterprises have accelerated the research and development of new products, improved their innovation ability, and achieved hard won results. Only China's machine tool industry can achieve such great growth before the post crisis era

at the same time, he also pointed out that after entering the second half of the year, new orders began to decline, especially for heavy-duty machine tools. The demand structure also changed

what should we think about the trend that the growth rate begins to decline? Wu believes that it is a normal phenomenon and a rational return. There are two special reasons for the blowout in the first half of the year: first, the demand energy accumulated by the market contraction since the financial crisis is released intensively; Second, the country's 4trillion yuan investment projects. Otherwise, how can it happen that almost all machine tool products of high, middle and low grade, large, medium and small specifications are in short supply? Of course, it is undeniable that the rapid growth since the beginning of 2010 is also inseparable from the fact that enterprises in the industry have begun to pay attention to structural adjustment and improve their innovation ability in recent years, laying a certain foundation

structural contradictions are more prominent

wubolin pointed out that for the production and marketing blowout phenomenon in the first half of the year, it does not have the advantages of high efficiency and energy saving and can be blindly optimistic about the high cost performance, so it is necessary to conduct in-depth structural analysis. Based on the challenges in the post crisis period, there are still many deep-seated problems to be solved

first, the product structure needs to be optimized. In the first eight months of 2010, 650000 machine tools were produced in the whole industry, but the average sales price of a single machine tool decreased year on year. From the data, the output growth rate is more than 60%, exceeding the ratio of output value and sales growth. This shows that the price of a single machine tool in the market has declined. As we all know, the sales price of a single host in the whole industry has increased year by year for six consecutive years, indicating that the product structure of the industry is being optimized year by year. However, the decline in the average price of a single machine tool in the first eight months of this year shows that, in the case of booming production and marketing, in addition to the decline in the market sales price of some products, the main reason is that the proportion of high-grade and middle-grade machine tools is decreasing, and the proportion of low-grade machine tools is increasing

from the perspective of corporate profits, according to incomplete statistics, the profit level of the whole industry in 2010 increased by nearly twice as much as the output value. This situation does not rule out the positive role of enterprises in improving their profitability due to the growth of business scale and the strengthening of management and the adoption of cost reduction measures. But at the same time, it is not difficult to see that at present, from the overall perspective of the whole industry, low-grade products make more money than high-grade products. This is a question worth pondering. It shows that China's machine tool industry has not jumped out of the development mode of epitaxial growth. If this problem is not solved, the development of the industry will not be sustainable. Therefore, the product structure of the industry needs to be optimized urgently, and the adjustment of the product structure of the industry has a long way to go

the second is the problem of industrial structure: the contradiction between CNC system and functional components is becoming more and more prominent. CNC system, functional components, has long been a short board restricting the development of CNC machine tool industry. Why is the profitability of high and middle grade CNC machine tools low? One of the main reasons is that CNC systems and functional components depend on imports. In the market, the more high-end products are constrained, and they can not meet the requirements in terms of delivery time and service. The structural contradictions are very prominent

wubolin told that the problem of the short board of the CNC system and functional components has been highly concerned. The leaders of the relevant departments of the State Council recently instructed that solving the problem of the CNC system and functional components is not a simple problem of filling in the blanks, but a strategic problem related to the overall situation. This is enough to illustrate the importance and urgency of this issue

finally, the market competition will become more and more fierce in the future. From two aspects of import and export: one is that the import has increased, the other is that although the export has increased, through the analysis of the structure of export products, there are not many machine tool products. Among them, there are few high-end products, and the proportion of middle-end products is not high. Most of them are low-end products such as ordinary machine tools and economic CNC machine tools. It can be seen that the structure of export products needs to be optimized

after the ECFA agreement is signed, Taiwan's machine tool products, especially some small and medium-sized products and functional components, will occupy a larger market. At the same time, with the sluggish European and American markets, more and more well-known foreign enterprises focus their market strategies on China. Not long ago, the American Manufacturing Association submitted to the government a proposal to return the United States to manufacturing, which has been approved. Recently, the Japanese government issued a decree that no longer allows high-tech enterprises such as CNC machine tools and CNC systems to be sold to overseas enterprises, and those that have sold part of their shares should be repurchased. In addition, the government will subsidize Japanese enterprises to acquire influential high-tech enterprises such as numerical control machine tools in Europe and the United States

these facts show that after the outbreak of the financial crisis, the United States is trying to revive the manufacturing industry by learning the lesson of abandoning the manufacturing industry; Japan has not only strengthened the protection of its own CNC machine tool industry, but also seized the opportunity to further enhance its dominant position in the CNC machine tool industry through mergers and acquisitions of European and American enterprises

we should be aware that in the coming period, the competition in the international market, especially in the Chinese market, will intensify. Therefore, the most fundamental way to deal with new challenges is to accelerate structural adjustment and enhance innovation capability
