Industrial Controls in China

Demand growth will be aided by further industrial control product development and technological advances in solid-state controls that will enable end users to improve their productivity

Demand to rise 13.6% yearly through 2015

Demand for industrial controls in China is projected to rise 13.6 percent annually through 2015 to ¥259 billion. Gains will be supported by increases in durable goods output, as well as by expanding investment in key industries such as chemicals, utilities and construction. Demand growth will also be aided by continuing product development and technological advances in solid-state controls that will enable end users to improve their productivity. However, gains will be restrained by competition from personal computers programmed to perform control-related functions.

Shipments of industrial controls from facilities in China are projected to rise 13.4 percent annually through 2015 to ¥269 billion, with net exports expanding to ¥9.8 billion. Shipment growth will be fueled primarily by strong increases in domestic demand, although exports will also expand as Chinese products become more competitive in international markets.

Advanced controls to outpace conventional types

Demand for advanced control products is expected to continue to rise faster than demand for conventional controls, as the advanced types provide superior performance and production capabilities. As these products become more technologically intricate, demand for systems integration services and industrial control software will grow rapidly. Adjustable speed drive controls will remain the largest advanced industrial control product segment, primarily bolstered by the superior energy conservation performance they provide. Demand for special-purpose controls is expected to continue to outpace that for generalpurpose products through 2015, benefiting from the application-specific nature of these devices that allows them to sell at higher prices than general-purpose controls.

Electrical/electronic equipment market to grow fastest

Durable goods industries accounted for the largest share of demand in 2010, making up 78 percent of the total. Industrial controls are especially utilized by electrical and electronic equipment and machinery manufacturers. Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) applications are expected to provide better prospects for growth than maintenance/ repair/operations (MRO) applications, benefiting from solid advances in durable goods manufacturing in China. Electrical and electronic equipment is expected to be the fastest growing market for industrial controls through 2015, supported by strong increases in manufacturing output, as well as rising use of control devices in electrical and electronic equipment.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the 137 billion yuan industrial controls industry in China. It presents historical demand data for the years 2000, 2005 and 2010, and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by product (e.g., adjustable speed drives, computer numerical controls, programmable logic controllers, proximity and positioning sensors, AC and DC starters and contactors, special purpose controls) and market (e.g., durable goods manufacturing, nondurable goods manufacturing, nonmanufacturing).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 38 industry participants, including People Electric Appliances Group, Schneider Electric, and DELIXI Group.
