Hardware market future | E-commerce to promote international trade

At present, the larger hardware market in a few blocks mainly in the mechanical hardware, architectural hardware, decorative hardware, household hardware, etc. Several experts predict that by 2020, China's industrial added value accounted for the proportion of global industrial added value from 5.72% in 2000 to more than 10%; manufactured exports accounted for the proportion of global exports of manufactured goods, from 2000's

At present, the larger hardware market in a few blocks mainly in the mechanical hardware, architectural hardware, decorative hardware, household hardware, etc. Several experts predict that by 2020, China's industrial added value accounted for the proportion of global industrial added value from From 5.72% in 2000 to over 10%, the share of manufactured exports in the global export of manufactured goods will have to increase from 5.22% in 2000 to over 10%. By that time, China still needs a number of strong hardware manufacturing Industry Group, the formation of a number of distinctive, internationally renowned hardware manufacturing concentration.

After several decades of accumulation and steady increase in China's hardware industry, it is now the world's largest output country with steady growth in exports each year, of which exports amount to 5.33 billion U.S. dollars, followed by construction hardware, $ 4.34 billion. Faucet exports 2.23 billion US dollars, exports of locks 680 million US dollars. Exports more countries are the United States, Japan, Europe, South Korea. China's hardware industry is the annual export growth rate of about 8%. Last year, exports of metal products The amount exceeded 5 billion US dollars, ranked third in the light industry export ranking due to the improvement of China's hardware manufacturing capacity and capacity expansion is expected within the next 5 years, China's hardware products will still maintain a steady growth of more than 10% per annum.First 10 months China's import and export of hardware and electromechanical products exceeded 500 billion U.S. dollars, further widening the surplus to 7.06 billion U.S. dollars, accounting for 64% of the national trade surplus in the same period.

With great potential for market development in the hardware industry, Luo Baihui, the director of International Mold & Plastic Hardware Industry Suppliers Association, pointed out that there are six major trends in the development of China's hardware industry at present: the surge in exports and the obvious comparative advantage; the operation of capital is active and the enterprises Between the sharing of resources; business polarization, bringing the market rational; high-tech content increase, enhance the market competitiveness of products, 'domestic international competition, domestic international competition' will be the development of China's hardware industry in the next few years.

1, as a global hardware manufacturing center will further strengthen its position.

China's economic facilities are relatively perfect, the industry is relatively mature and labor costs are low, with the advantages of becoming a global hardware manufacturing center, the characteristics of export-oriented hardware manufacturing industry is characterized by the strengthening of the center of the performance of the first in recent years, the full export of hardware products Growth: The export growth rate of major hardware products are higher than the growth rate of production, higher than the growth rate of sales volume in the domestic market; the main hardware appliances fully blooming, electric tools, hand tools, construction hardware products these traditional export products A huge increase .Great market and center gravity will further attract hardware multinationals manufacturing center to China's transfer.

2, the capital operation in the industry will become more active and the cooperation among enterprises will be significantly strengthened.

In the global competitive environment, in order to gain a favorable competitive position and improve competitiveness, industrial capital is another theme of the operation of the industry in 2004 Supor, Vantage has listed, Hongbao is also active in the market for the listing, and capital markets The operation will not be stopped because of the failure of the reorganization with Guangdong Meiya.From the capital point of view, the current main feature is the expansion of capital is exacerbated.From the perspective of competition, the cooperation of resource sharing among enterprises is increasing.

3, business polarization will be further exacerbated.

The next few years will be the hardware industry, high-speed shock period, the direct result of this high-speed shock is leading to the current hardware kitchen brand camp trend of polarization is expected to expand in the next few years can really survive in the hardware business Now so much.But the hardware industry, this high-speed shocks will bring great opportunities, the result of the shock will make the market more rational operation.

4, the sales channels will undergo profound changes, the competition between channels is also increasingly fierce.

Large retailers, by virtue of their vast market coverage, procurement scale and cost advantages, will increasingly control the manufacturing enterprises in product pricing, delivery of goods, etc. Meanwhile, the requirements of the international market for China's hardware products will also gradually evolve, China's product quality, packaging, delivery deadline will have higher requirements, and even gradually extended to the production process and product development, the product and environmental protection, energy resources, human environment combined.

5, the market competition will be mainly price-oriented to high-quality, high-tech products.

With the deepening of competition, the profit margins in the various stages of the hardware industry chain are shrinking, and the space for depreciation is decreasing day by day. More and more enterprises are realizing that price competitiveness alone can not establish their core competitiveness and are not the direction of long-term development so as to make efforts Explore a new path of development.Many hardware companies to increase investment in technology to develop new high-tech products, the product differentiation as a long-term development of enterprises, seeking new market demand and establishing a new point of economic growth (Into such as small appliances and other similar industries), in order to achieve sustainable development of enterprises.

6, the integration of domestic and foreign enterprises will be further accelerated.

Domestic hardware enterprises in order to enhance their own strength, faster expansion of the international market, will be through various means to speed up the integration with foreign companies to improve product quality and enhance competitiveness in the continued expansion of the United States, Japan and other traditional markets at the same time, in Southeast Asia , The Middle East, Russia, Europe, Africa, etc. will blossom in full bloom.
