The Analysis of Machine Tool Industry Output and Consumption Worldwide(Ⅰ)
--The General Introduction
Last year, the situation of machine tool industry is still in a time of slumping demand. Half a year passed of 2014,
the condition is gradually becoming well compared to last year. So how will the machine tool industry
develop in the future? Maybe we can get some glues from the data of 2013.
AS the annual report of Germany Machine Tool Association,in 2013, the output value of machine tool worldwide
was 59.1 Billion Euros in 54 countries and regions, excluding the spare-parts and after-sale service. Compared
to the output value of 2012, it is lower than the 67.4 Billion of last year, 12% declined. If it is calculated by US
dollars, the percentage decline is 9%.
Owing to the emerging nations, Brazil, India, Turkey and Russia implement the policy of native currency
devaluation, as well as Japan. So, in order to decrease the effect of exchange rate, the data from this
countries is calculated by the currency of their owns, and the by this way, the rate of decline is 7% worldwide.
If in detailed, Asia 14 declined, especially the decline of China and Japan is significant. And the Europe
increased 1% and America 2% declined. In order to make it convenient to compare with, the Germany Machine
Tool Association minus the data of Non-cnc machine tool from the data. Because the simply machine
tool(price lower than 10,000 Euros) has a large market in China, only 55% of CNC machine tool in 2012.
Therefore, the finally rate of 2013 is 28% and the output value went down to 13.5 Billion Euros from 18.8 Billions
Euros. The value of export also declined, and the import value was still. The Chinese market become 19.5
Billions from 24.3 Billions, 20% of declined rate.
