China's mold manufacturing industry to focus on the direction of development

Release time:


In recent years, as China has become the world's largest producer and marketer of the automobile industry, the domestic automobile industry has developed very rapidly. In the past, most of the models produced by China's joint venture auto companies were old or even on the verge of elimination in developed countries; but now, when almost all auto companies in developed countries enter the "cold winter", China's auto production and sales are rising steadily. The huge auto market and its potential have forced auto companies in developed countries to use China as a "front-line position", and more and more global first-round models have appeared in China.
The rapid development of China's automobile industry has also brought a broad space for the development of domestic automobile molds. Due to cost and market factors, the focus of mold manufacturing in developed countries has gradually shifted to developing countries represented by China. The comprehensive factors at home and abroad have promoted the rapid development of the domestic mold industry, and many new automobile mold enterprises have emerged.
According to the statistics of China mold association in 2012, the number of key mold enterprises reached nearly 110, of which stamping molds accounted for about 37%. China has become a veritable automobile mold manufacturing power. However, due to the slow technological upgrading of domestic high-end automobile mold enterprises, the lack of technological innovation ability and the research and development and application ability of new mold technology, the development ability of domestic high-end mold can not fully meet the supporting needs of the domestic automobile industry, and a large part of high-end automobile mold still needs to rely on imports. And the domestic high-end mold enterprises occasionally because of the lack of production load, have to change the initial market positioning and to seize the low-end market. Although the survival problem of the enterprise has been solved, due to the low profit margin of the middle and low-end markets, the funds invested in R & D and technological innovation are also very small. Under certain circumstances, a vicious circle has been formed, so that the enterprise has not entered a virtuous development cycle. The above reasons also make us a distance from the real automobile mold "manufacturing power.
Because there are many high-end automobile mold enterprises in China, the market competition is becoming increasingly fierce. In addition to meeting the Q (quality), C (cost) and T (cycle) requirements of traditional mold enterprises, the research and development and application of new mold technology will become the key development direction of domestic mold manufacturing industry in the future.
