Latest company news about Analysis of the development status and trend of China's mold industry

1、 Market status of China's mold manufacturing industry

In recent years, due to the continuous improvement of China's industrialization, China has become a major mold manufacturing country and mold trade country in the world. The mold industry has a high correlation with many industries and covers a wide range. The continuous development of the downstream market also drives the rapid development of China's mold industry. Especially with the transfer of global manufacturing industry to China, driving the upgrading of China's manufacturing industry will also bring new growth opportunities to the mold industry. In 2016, the market size of China's mold industry reached 273.107 billion yuan. Due to the epidemic, the market size of China's mold industry declined in 2020, with a market size of 276.612 billion yuan. It is expected that the market size of China's mold industry will rise to 302.833 billion yuan in 2021.

2、Development trend of China's mold manufacturing industry

(1) The market share of leading enterprises has increased, and the industry concentration has gradually increased
At present, the mold manufacturing industry is dominated by small and medium-sized enterprises with a large number, but the industry concentration is low. With the continuous growth of the demand for high-end downstream applications such as automobile lightweight, consumer electronics, rail transit, etc., the leading enterprises in the industry have increased their investment in research and development, accelerated the upgrading of production line automation, improved the level of new product development, and continuously enhanced the one-stop supporting services of multiple specifications and full production lines, thus occupying the new market share, while the technological level is low and the technical development ability is weak Small enterprises with poor service capacity will be gradually eliminated, and market resources will gradually concentrate on the advantageous enterprises in the industry.
(2) The domestic low-end market is relatively saturated, and the pace of localization in the medium-high end market is accelerated
Compared with international leading enterprises, there are a large number of domestic mold manufacturing enterprises, but most of them mainly produce low-end products due to limited equipment level and R&D investment, and the variety is relatively single, which is difficult to meet the upgrading downstream market demand. In recent years, some of the leading mould manufacturing enterprises in China have introduced advanced production equipment and technology from abroad, strengthened independent technology research and development and production process innovation, improved the automation level of the production line, improved product accuracy and stability, conducted all-round competition with international manufacturers in the medium and high-end markets, and constantly realized the import substitution of medium and high-end products.
(3) Production and manufacturing are developing towards automation and intelligence, and production efficiency is greatly improved
With the deep application of CAD/CAE/CAM integration technology, 3D design technology and other information management technologies in the machinery manufacturing industry and the development of Internet of Things technology, the mold manufacturing industry will improve the ability of new technology integration and software and hardware integration in the production and design process in the future, and promote the development of production and manufacturing towards automation and intelligence, so as to improve the mold processing efficiency and manufacturing accuracy. Based on the existing technology level and manufacturing capacity, the mold manufacturing industry is gradually realizing the upgrading of efficiency, automation and intelligence through the integrated application of communication technology, big data and Internet of Things technology, and comprehensively improving the product design ability and production process control ability.
(4) Rapid response to market demand and improvement of customized R&D and design capabilities have become an important factor in competition
Mold manufacturing products are usually customized production based on the actual needs of customers. In recent years, with the expansion of downstream application fields such as photovoltaic, wind power, automobile lightweight, consumer electronics and so on, the speed of product update has been accelerating. As an upstream field, the mold manufacturing industry should have a deep understanding of product characteristics and customer needs, participate in customer initial research and development, shorten the research and development cycle, speed up production and service response speed, and improve product quality stability. Facing customers and market demands, the ability to carry out synchronous research and development, design, production and manufacturing has gradually become an important indicator to measure the market competitiveness of enterprises.
