The Analysis of Machine Tool Industry Output and Consumption Worldwide(Ⅱ)
--The Output of Machine Tool Worldwide in 2013
In the rank list of machine tool manufacturing countries, the first ten countries and regions are same
to 2012, the difference is some of the countries’position varied. Especially, the position of Germany
and Japan exchanged, Italy exchanged with South Korea, and USA exchanged with Taiwan, China.
About the first three countries, the total output value was 57% of the total amount, the rate of
Germany gent up obviously. The total 57% was lower than 60% in 2012.
China was still the first position and had 22.8% share. It’s output value gent down 12%, compared
with 2012. After 5% down compared to 2011, in the 2 years, it declined continuously. Germany
was the winner in 2013, getting 4% increased, say, 11.15 Billion Euros by the advantages of
machine tool industry. So the percentage point of Germany in the global market increased 2.9,
up to 18.9%.
About Japan, if calculated by Japanese Yen, the output value decreased 18%, and 35% declined,
up to 9.2 Billion if calculated by Euros, because the Japanese Yen devalued much to Euros.
Except the exchange rate effect, the main cause of Japan machine tool output value gent down
was that the requirement of its trade partner, China, declined. On the other hand, owing to most
of the Japanese company had opened the factory locally, there are 20 companies which is
specialized in metal turning and milling machine opening the factory in China.
As for the other countries in Europe, machine tool industry of Italy was recovering, the rank of
other European countries did not change apparently.
In details, the second machine tool manufacturing country, Italy, shared 7.3% market share,
although the output value declined slightly, the market share rank increase to fourth. South
Korea decreased 6% to 6.8%, ranked fifth.U.S. decreased 1%, ranked sixth. China Taiwan
decreased 16% to 5.8%, ranked seventh. Switzerland went down to 4% by 6% declined,
ranked eighth. Another two countries in the first ten countries, Spain and Austria increased
1.6% and 1.4% separately, and ranked ninth and tenth accordingly.
About China, in 2013, in the field of metal cutting and turning machine and forming machine, the
output value were all in the first position. The total output value of metal cutting and forming
were 41.1 Billion and 18 Billion Euros in 2013, shared 69% and 31% accordingly. However,
there is big difference between metal cutting and forming. The metal cutting value which was
related to economic environment closely decreased 17%, the forming value was generally
same to 2012.
Regarding the detailed percentage of metal cutting and forming machine in the whole industry,
metal cutting got 84% share, it was in the high level compared to competitors. 83% rate of
metal cutting in Switzerland, 82% in Taiwan, 75% in U.S., 71% in Germany and South Korea,
63% in China. In Italy, the share of metal cutting and forming was neck and neck.
In the rank of metal cutting machine value, Japan got down to third from the first position of
2012, say, 7.7 Billion Euros, 18.8% shared worldwide. China took the first place by 8.5 Billion
total output value, 19% declined when compared to 2012, sharing 20.8 of the market share.
The big manufacturer Germany decreased 1% and exceeded Japan to second position by
total 7.9 Billion Euros, 19.3% shared. In the past several years, as the fourth largest
manufacturer of metal cutting machine, Taiwan of China, slid to sixth. At the same time, South
Korea and U.S. got one place raised, ranked fourth and fifth by the same market share 6.9%.
As for the aspect of forming machine, in 2011 and 2012, the forming machine value of China
increased 50% and 21%, and 4% increased in 2013. In the total value, forming machine
value had got to 37% from 24% of 2010. The total value of forming machine achieved 4.9
Billion, sharing the 27.3% worldwide, remaining the obviously advantage with other rivals.
Germany took the second place by 17.8% and 3.2 Billion. Italy was still the third largest
forming machine manufacturer, especially in the field of bending technology. In 2013, the
forming value of Italy was 2.1 Billion and 11.7%. Japan was in the fourth position by rate of
8.4%. South Korea was fifth one by 6.4%.
