Machine Tools in China

Machine tools demand in China will be spurred by strong growth in the industrial machinery and transportation equipment industries, as well as in the electrical and electronics market.

Demand to increase 9.2% per annum through 2017

Demand for machine tools in China is projected to increase 9.2 percent per year to 600 billion yuan in 2017. Gains will be stimulated by healthy growth in manufacturing production, especially in the industrial machinery and transportation equipment industries. In addition, a continuing shift in the product mix toward higher-value product types such as machining centers, CNC machine tools, and multitasking machine tools will help drive market gains in value terms. Moreover, increasing regulations regarding energy conservation will lead to growth in demand for energy-efficient machine tools.

Shipments to slightly outpace demand

Machine tool shipments in China are projected to slightly outpace demand through 2017, benefiting from sizable expansions in the domestic market plus rising demand for Chinese machine tools in a number of export markets as the quality of Chinese machine tools continues to improve. Exports of machine tools will rise at a strong annual rate through 2017, driven by improved product quality, especially in small CNC machine tools, while prices remain competitive.

China will continue to see its trade deficit in machine tools expand for the foreseeable future. As imports increase through 2017, foreign suppliers will continue to benefit from growing demand for the precise and sophisticated machine tools needed to manufacture advanced machines.

Metal cutting machine tools to remain largest segment

Metal cutting machine tools will continue to be the largest product segment in 2017, benefiting from a relatively wider range of applications in durable goods production and a comparatively greater variety of metal cutting product types. Growing demand for highly advanced and comprehensive metal cutting machines -- especially for machining centers and multitasking machines -- will also further boost product sales. Growth in demand for metal forming equipment is forecast to slightly outpace that of metal cutting machine tools through 2017, benefiting from strong growth anticipated in the motor vehicle, shipbuilding, aerospace, and power transmission and distribution industries.

Advances in key markets to track average industry pace

The industrial machinery and transportation equipment markets have the largest impact on overall machine tool sales, as they accounted for well over half of all demand in 2012. Gains in these two markets are forecast to be near the market average through 2017. Sustained plans to expand durable goods pro-duction, facility renovations, and new product innovation in all markets will continue to stimulate growth. Machine tool demand in the electrical and electronics market is also expected to expand near the average rate through 2017, benefiting from strong increases in fixed investment in the home appliance and power generating equipment industries.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the ¥386 billion machine tool industry in China. It presents historical demand data for 2002, 2007 and 2012, and forecasts for 2017 and 2022 by product (e.g., lathes, milling machines, machining centers, grinding machines, multitasking machines, laser machines, EDM, presses and forging machines, bending machines, shearing and punching machines, machine tool accessories), market (e.g., industrial machinery, transportation equipment, electrical and electronics, primary and fabricated metals) and geographic region.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 38 industry participants, including Shenyang Machine Tool Group, Dalian Machine Tool Group and Beijing Jingcheng Machinery Electric.
