International Mould & Metal & Plastic Industry Suppliers Association Secretary-General Luo Hui said that China's hardware industry development, a growth rate of 20% per year and an annual output value reached 400 billion yuan, higher than the appliance industry. Entire exports of light industry in China, accounting for about 25% of total exports, the exports of the hardware industry ranked in the top three of the light industry. China's hardware products across almost every corner of the world, China is becoming a veritable hardware industry.
From a time point of view, a few years ago, China's hardware industry overall grade is not too high, more small and medium enterprises, lower start for a number of small workshops; relatively large changes in recent years, the improvement of the quality of personnel, such as Beijing the person in charge of the China Hardware City will build the country's largest hardware market, are Ph.D., postdoctoral person; raise the level of technology and management, such as the Great Wall Seiko factory already has a very high level, in the process, management.
From a technology point of view, the current domestic production technology level is uneven, many foreign manufacturers as their products processing base in China, many enterprises have entered the mainland market in the international arena.
Now is the stage of upgrading of hardware products in China, from low-end to high-end products over time. This is very favorable for the development of China's hardware industry, in the process of the production of foreign products to the domestic transfer, it is bound to raw materials, including some foreign advanced production technology, management model together brought.
From traditional hardware point of view, first, this one, like hand tools, hydraulic tools, electric tools development faster. Architectural hardware, decorative hardware, the replacement rate is relatively fast.
In addition, metal parts and components market demand. Handan, a small processing plant, the production process is very backward, it amounted to more than 10 million sales force across the country. China's hardware industry after 10 years of accumulation and improved steadily, and now has the biggest producer in the world, exports to grow steadily each year.
Among them, exports the largest amount of tools products, amounted to $ 5.34 billion; followed by architectural hardware, for $ 4.34 billion. The faucet export of $ 2.23 billion, locks exports of $ 680 million. Most exports are the United States, Japan, Europe, South Korea. China's hardware industry annual export growth rate of about 8%. Metal products exports last year exceeded $ 5 billion, ranks third in the light industry export ranking. Raise the level of China's hardware manufacturing and expansion of production capacity, it is expected that the next five years, China's hardware products will continue to maintain a steady growth of more than 10% per annum. The first 10 months of our hardware mechanical and electrical products import and export volume of more than $ 500 billion The surplus further expand, totaled $ 7.06 billion, accounting for 64% of the country's trade surplus in the same period.
Believe in the future, China's hardware industry will increasingly tend to diversify, the technical level of the industry will be increasingly high, the quality of the product will be a steady increase. And further standardized management of the state of the industry, and some of the industry's implementation of preferential policies, China's hardware industry will become more and more space for development.
