In terms of industry characteristics, there is no such thing as a sunrise or sunset in the gas spring industry. Whether it is internationally or domestically, it is an industry with obvious traditional characteristics. How big is its competition and market space?
Distribution of domestic gas spring market
my country’s gas spring 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 vacuum flasks to the scooters that were all the rage last year, they have brought them a lot of money.
Guangdong: It will soon become the world’s mold production center. At present, there are more than 6,000 mold companies in the surrounding areas of Shenzhen and the Pearl River Delta, employing more than 100,000 people. The South China International Mould Exhibition has been held for five consecutive times in Shenzhen, attracting more than 1,000 enterprises from 25 countries and regions. It is the most professional and international mould industry exhibition in China today.
International gas spring market dynamics
1. Developed countries transfer mid- and low-end products to the third world
Due to the rapid development of production technology and the impact of expensive labor, developed countries have accelerated the transfer of medium and low-end products to the third world, and only produce some high value-added products themselves.
2. DIY products have become the new favorite of the hardware market. In recent years, in Europe and the United States, as the design of architectural hardware products in developed countries is easy to install and maintain, products and tools that can be assembled (doityourself) have become popular in the market. According to the analysis of people in the industry, in the next two years, domestic construction hardware products will also move toward an intelligent and humanized development path.
Domestic gas spring market dynamics
1. China’s daily hardware industry has entered the forefront of the world
Since 1996, China has successively established 14 technology development centers including zippers, electric shavers, stainless steel utensils, iron pots, blades, bicycle locks, and 16 product centers including pressure cookers, electric shavers, and lighters. At present, most of these centers have developed into the vanguard of the industry, and some have become the vanguard of the world. For example, Supor Cookware Company produces high-end electric pressure cookers; Zhejiang Superman Group’s electric shaver output has exceeded Japan’s Sanyo Company, becoming the world’s third largest shaver Manufacturer; Wenzhou Dahu Lighter Factory has become China’s largest metal lighter manufacturer and has achieved good economic benefits.
2. China has gradually become a major metal processing country and a major exporter in the world
my country has become one of the world’s major hardware producers, with a broad market and consumption potential. Although the financial crisis in the past few years had a slight impact on my country’s hardware exports, it has improved since 1999. Foreign exchange earned from exports rose from US$2.76 billion in 1995 to US$3.847 billion in 1999, an increase of 71.74%, an average annual increase of 11.4%, and has been steadily increasing since then. In 2002, the total output value of my country’s hardware industry reached 189.5 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 19.15%. The customs statistics export totaled US$6.774 billion, a year-on-year increase of 24.51%. Among them, the output of gas water heaters was 2.4384 million units, an increase of 19.18% over the previous year; locks were 1.230 billion. , An increase of 9.43% over the previous year; 415,000 tons of stainless steel products for daily use, an increase of 24.56%. It is understood that at least 70% of China’s hardware industry is now private enterprises, which are 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 rising labor prices in European and American developed countries, the universal products are transferred to developing countries to produce only high value-added products, and China has a strong market potential , So it is more beneficial to develop into a large exporting country for hardware processing.
