Market distribution and development trend of hardware tools

from the perspective of industry characteristics, there is no sunrise or sunset in the hardware tool industry. It is an industry with obvious traditional characteristics both internationally and domestically. How competitive and market space is it

distribution of domestic hardware tool market

China's hardware tool market is mainly distributed in Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Shanghai, Guangdong and Shandong, among which Zhejiang and Guangdong are the most prominent. Yongkang in Zhejiang has always been known as the "hometown of hardware", and Zhejiang people have a strong sense of market operation. From the original hot pot products and stainless steel thermos cups to the popular scooter last year, it has brought them a lot of money

Guangdong: will soon become the world's mold production center. At present, more than 6000 mold enterprises with more than 100000 employees have gathered around Shenzhen and the Pearl River Delta. South China International Mold Exhibition has been held in Shenzhen for five consecutive times, attracting more than 1000 enterprises from 25 countries and regions. It is the most professional and international mold industry exhibition in China today

International Hardware tool market dynamics

1. developed countries will transfer medium and low-grade products to the third world

due to the rapid development of production technology and the impact of expensive labor prices, developed countries have accelerated the transfer of medium and low-grade products to the third world, and only produce some high value-added products themselves products have become a new favorite in the hardware market

in recent years, in Europe and the United States, with the design of architectural hardware products in developed countries focusing on easy installation and maintenance, do it yourself products and tools are very popular in the market. According to the analysis of people and soil in the industry, in the next two years, domestic construction hardware products will also move towards an intelligent and humanized development path

market dynamics of domestic hardware tools

1. Alan barcon, market development manager of PolyOne in China, said in an interview with plastics recently that the daily-use hardware industry has entered the forefront of the world

since 1996, China has successively established 14 Technology development centers such as zippers, electric shavers, stainless steel vessels, iron pots, razors, bicycle locks, and 16 product centers such as pressure cookers, electric shavers, lighters. At present, most of these centers have become leaders in the industry, and some have become leaders in the world. For example, Supor cookers produces high-end electric pressure cookers; The output of electric shavers of Zhejiang Superman group has surpassed that of Sanyo company of Japan, becoming the third largest shaver manufacturer in the world; Wenzhou Dahu lighter factory has become the largest metal lighter manufacturer in China, and has achieved good economic benefits

2. China has gradually become a major hardware processing and export country in the world.

China has become one of the world's largest hardware producers, with a broad market and consumption potential. Although the financial crisis in previous years had a slight impact on China's hardware exports, it has improved since 1999. Foreign exchange earnings from exports rose from US $2.76 billion in 1995 to US $3.847 billion in 1999, an increase of 71.74%, with an average annual increase of 11.4%, and has been growing steadily since then. In 2002, the total output value of China's hardware industry reached 189.5 billion yuan, with a year-on-year increase of 19.15%. According to customs statistics, the total export volume was 6.774 billion US dollars, with a year-on-year increase of 24.51%. Among them, the output of gas-fired water heaters was 2.4384 million units, with a year-on-year increase of 19.18%; 1.230 billion locks, an increase of 9.43% over the previous year; Stainless steel products for daily use were 415000 tons, with a year-on-year increase of 24.56%. It is understood that at least 70% of China's hardware industry is private enterprises, which is the main force in the development of China's hardware industry. On the other hand, in the International Hardware Market: due to the rapid development of production technology and the rise of labor prices, developed countries in Europe and the United States have transferred universal products to developing countries to produce only high value-added products, while China has a strong market potential, so it is more conducive to develop into a major hardware processing and export country

overview and development trend of key markets

next, let's talk about several major markets in the hardware industry: the overview of the hand tool market, the cutter Market and the mold market, hoping to bring some enlightenment to manufacturers

(I) hand tool market

1. the demand for hand tools in the United States has stabilized

at the end of last year, while the scale of new houses in the housing market in the United States increased, there are still a large number of existing houses uninhabited, which brings great housing renovation market opportunities. The average model and age of motor vehicles are getting larger and larger, which has played a certain role in promoting the sales of hand tools in the automotive after-sales market. In addition, there is a strong demand for forging tools distributed in electronic products, especially adjustable wrenches

2. The demand for hand tools in Germany increases

comfortable and labor-saving tools are the most popular in Germany. The smooth handle and beautiful appearance that help to grip the tool are important factors that attract them to buy. In terms of tool types, electric tools are becoming increasingly popular. In addition, rechargeable tools are becoming increasingly popular. The new rechargeable tools on the market now have multiple charging battery sockets, which can be used in various environments

3. Taiwan's hand tools industry adjusts its product structure

Taiwan's hand tools industry has certain advantages in the world by virtue of stable product quality, punctual delivery and complete product varieties, which can meet the needs of customers. Moreover, the sales of hand tools in Taiwan are mainly in the off Island market. At present, there are about 5000 local manufacturers, mostly distributed in the central region of Taiwan Island, mainly small and medium-sized enterprises. According to relevant survey data, in terms of individual hand tool product categories, sockets are the bulk of exports, followed by hand tool combinations, gardening tools are the third, wrenches are the fourth and pliers are the fifth. In terms of exporting countries, the United States ranks first, followed by Britain, Germany and Japan

(II) tool market

1. The demand of the world tool market will continue to grow

according to overseas media reports, the demand of the world tool market continues to grow. Among them, the growth of European and North American countries is stable, especially the Eastern European countries; The Asian market rebounded slightly, with great market potential, and the markets of Latin American countries increased significantly, especially Mexico. (in the past year, the slow growth in the demand of the tool market is mainly due to the increase in tool life. In addition, users put forward requirements for the whole manufacturing process, replacing many machine tools and tools. As well as the increase in the application of multi-functional tools, replacing many simple tools with single functions in the past.) The expert predicted that "in the future, users will pay more attention to the research and development of cutting tools by manufacturers, not only in the field of materials and surface coating technology, but also in cutting tool products and their production processes." The expert said that focusing on production practice will help tool manufacturers increase their market competitiveness in the fields they are familiar with

2. Technological updates

in terms of tool product technology, cemented carbide tools gradually replace high-speed steel tools, especially circular tools. The application of coated cutting tools is becoming more and more common. In Europe, the market share of new cutting tools for high-speed machining is growing

3. dynamics of manufacturers

from the perspective of the cooperation mode of tool manufacturers, there will be strong alliances of many large companies in the high-tech market

(III) overview and development trend of mold Market

1 During the Tenth Five Year Plan period, the general trend of the mold market is stable and upward

at present, the domestic market has a great demand for medium and high-end molds, but it is required that domestic molds must meet the needs of users in terms of quality, delivery time and so on. Moreover, the home appliance, automobile and plastic products industries have the largest demand for molds

international market: in recent years, the labor cost of industrial developed countries has increased, and their mold production is transferring to developing countries, especially Southeast Asian countries. In China, it mainly produces high-precision molds, and molds with a large amount of manual labor input rely on imports. Therefore, the international market potential of medium and low-grade molds is very huge. As long as the quality of domestic molds can be improved and the delivery time can be guaranteed, the prospect of mold export is very optimistic. In addition, the international market also has a great demand for plastic mold frames and mold standard parts. At present, China only exports a small amount of plastic mold frames

relevant experts believe that after China's accession to the WTO, with the wave of world economic integration, the accelerated transfer of global manufacturing to Chinese Mainland has become the general trend, and China will gradually develop into a world-class manufacturing base. Experts predict that Guangdong, especially the Pearl River Delta, with obvious advantages, will develop into a world mold production center within ten years. At the same time, in recent years, China has used nearly US $1billion to import molds every year, of which precision, large, complex (5) tensile stress-strain curves and long-life molds account for the majority. Therefore, from the perspective of reducing imports, the share of such high-end molds in the market will gradually increase. According to customs statistics, in 2000, China imported 977million US dollars and exported 173million US dollars

2. The mold market will show ten development trends in the future

Liu Depu, Secretary General of Shanghai Mold Industry Association, believes that China's molds will show ten development trends in the future:

first, molds are becoming larger and larger. This is caused by the development of "the first mock examination with multiple cavities" due to the increasingly large-scale parts formed by the mold and the requirements of high production efficiency

second, the accuracy of the mold is getting higher and higher. Ten years ago, the precision of precision molds was generally 5 microns, but now it has reached 2-3 microns. Soon, molds with a precision of 1 micron will be on the market. This requires ultra precision machining

third, multi-functional composite molds will be further developed. In addition to stamping parts, the new multi-functional composite die also undertakes the assembly tasks of stacking, tapping, riveting and locking, and has higher and higher requirements on the performance of steel

fourth, the proportion of hot runner mold in plastic mold has gradually increased. Because the mold using hot runner technology can improve the productivity and quality of parts, and can greatly save the raw materials, the application of hot runner technology has developed rapidly in foreign countries. More than half of the plastic molds produced by many plastic mold factories use hot runner technology, and some manufacturers have a utilization rate of more than 80%, which has a very obvious effect. Hot runner molds have also been produced in China, and the utilization rate of some enterprises has increased to 20% - 30%

fifth, with the continuous improvement and development of plastic molding process, gas assisted molds and molds suitable for high-pressure injection molding and other processes will develop. This kind of mold requires good rigidity and high pressure resistance, especially the cavity of precision mold should be quenched, the gate sealing is good, and the mold temperature can be accurately controlled, so the performance requirements of mold steel are very strict

sixth, the application of standard parts will be more and more widely. Mold standardization and the application of mold standard parts will greatly affect the mold manufacturing cycle, and can also improve the quality of molds and reduce mold manufacturing costs. Therefore, the application of mold standard parts will certainly get greater development during the Tenth Five Year Plan period

seventh, the prospect of rapid economic mold is very broad. Now is the era of multi variety and small batch production. In the 21st century, this mode of production will account for more than 75% of industrial production. Therefore, on the one hand, the product service cycle is shortened, on the other hand, the pattern changes frequently, requiring the shorter the production cycle of the mold, the better. Therefore, the development of rapid economic mold will attract more and more attention

eighth, with the development of lightweight products such as vehicles and motors, the proportion of die-casting dies will continue to increase, and at the same time
