1trillion Market: China's equipment "automobile opportunity"

in this new century based on wheels, no one will question the important position of the automobile industry in the national economy. When the financial crisis hit in 2008, the first reaction of all countries in the world was to rescue the dying auto industry, as did the United States, Japan and Germany. This is not only because the automotive industry has huge production and sales, but also because of the highly related nature of the automotive industry. The fact that one person who loses his job in the automotive industry will lose ten people in society has long been recognized by global automotive experts

nowadays, as the core of global automobile production and consumption, Feng Shui has shifted from Europe, America, Japan and South Korea to China. After the production and sales volume of China's auto industry surpassed that of the United States last year, China has become the focus of common concern of enterprises on the auto industry chain, because there are too many business opportunities in China's auto industry at present. This business opportunity not only includes the manufacturing and sales of cars, but also includes the provision of accessories and services for vehicle enterprises, as well as the decline in the plasticity of production related equipment for automobile manufacturing enterprises

as far as China's automobile manufacturing enterprises are concerned, they can be complacent, because the huge market demand makes the sales goals they set at the beginning of the year often achieve smoothly without surprise. Sometimes when they check at the end of the year, they even feel that the sales goals are set a little low. However, for those manufacturing enterprises that provide equipment for the automotive industry in China, the beauty of gathering wealth like vehicle enterprises does not appear yet

statistics show that China's automotive industry currently relies on foreign equipment as much as 70%, and in parts manufacturing and other fields, it relies on foreign equipment as much as 90%. This is a somewhat shocking figure, which is translated into market language: if the current situation of China's automotive industry's dependence on foreign equipment is not significantly improved during the 12th Five Year Plan period, 700billion yuan in the 1trillion market may be ceded to others

we can't tell which field of equipment manufacturing will be greatly affected by the 1trillion market. Because the automobile industry uses a wide variety of equipment and different models. In the automotive industry, the five production lines of general assembly, welding, spraying, parts and components, and engines focus on different types of equipment. However, the upcoming 1trillion market of the automotive industry has put forward a common test for Chinese equipment under the new situation, because the characteristics of large-scale production in the automotive industry can best test the stability and reliability of equipment, and this seems to be the bottleneck that Chinese equipment needs to break through

take China's machine tool industry as an example: Although China has become the world's first machine tool production and consumption country, and the proportion of high-end machine tools in the overall product structure of China's machine tools has also been increasing, China's machine tools are still in the growth stage on the basis of stability and reliability. The reason why most automobile manufacturers do not use Chinese machine tools is that Chinese machine tools cannot maintain the stability of accuracy and processing quality. This is also reflected in other devices used in the automotive industry. The share of domestic equipment in automotive spraying and welding production lines with high automation requirements is also relatively low. The relevant person in charge of FAW once introduced that the stability of coating equipment and welding equipment directly or indirectly affects the stability of process parameters, the uniformity of production quality and the first pass rate. These often directly affect the quality of automobile processing, and the production enterprises are naturally sloppy

however, poor reliability may not be the only reason for the poor application of Chinese equipment in the automotive industry. Some experts in the industry believe that China's established automobile enterprises almost completely copy foreign models in production line and process design because they take the road of joint venture. In order to ensure product quality and smooth production, domestic enterprises use whatever equipment foreign-funded car enterprises use. It can be understood as follows: in the eyes of automobile enterprises, replacing the original equipment with made in China may be like an organ transplant process, and the side effect may be the rejection reaction. The characteristics of large-scale automobile production may make automobile enterprises dare not bear this risk

although in the automotive equipment market, Chinese equipment enterprises have inherent disadvantages. However, this does not seem to be an excuse for Chinese enterprises to stop marching into the automotive sector. With the continuous progress of China's equipment manufacturing capacity and technical level in recent years, the market of the automotive industry is also being torn open by China's equipment step by step. In the production line of Chang'an, the welding equipment from Tianjin seven high-tech institutes has been highly praised; Jinan No.2 machine tool, which comes from the field of machine tools, has ranked among the world's three major stamping equipment manufacturers. In recent years, it not only has a high market share in the domestic automotive industry, but also has become a global supplier of general motors, Volkswagen, Ford, Nissan, Honda, Suzuki and other enterprises

it may not be appropriate to make a complete comparison between mature foreign products and growing Chinese equipment, because the times and 588.4 industry environment have changed greatly. Even today's high-end European machine tools and Japanese robots with such precision also have an industrial development process from weak to strong. When Chinese equipment enterprises overcome the disadvantages of reliability and move towards the high-end, we may learn from the development path of foreign equipment enterprises. The example we can see is that foreign equipment enterprises have firmly tied themselves up with their largest customers during their growth period. For example, the reason why the machine tool enterprises in Japan and South Korea can rank among the world's advanced in a relatively short time is that they focus on the most popular automobile market in that year, so Toyota machine, which was specially provided with equipment, was born under Toyota, and the former South Korean Daewoo promoted the development of Daewoo Heavy Industry

the experience of the United States, Japan and South Korea can prove that when the experimental force is applied to more than 13kn, a loud noise is heard, which shows that precision manufacturing industries such as automobile and aerospace have a great pulling effect on the high-end transformation of related equipment. And China's automobile industry is providing an opportunity that can not be ignored for China's equipment to move towards high-end manufacturing during the 12th Five Year Plan period, (according to relevant data, when the automobile production in the United States reaches 10million, there are more than 200 construction awards, standard housing and standard allocation awards, newly purchased equipment awards, overall relocation awards, logistics and transportation subsidies, Talent Awards, enterprise contribution awards and fund and financing support lines, while there are less than 100 in China at present, and this gap is being accelerated by Chinese automobile enterprises.) In fact, many Chinese equipment enterprises have adjusted their attention to the automotive industry, pursuing the combination of product technology and customer production technology while studying technology upgrading. Maybe we can look forward to it optimistically: in the near future, China's equipment enterprises will be able to produce more successful companies in the automotive field, such as Jinan No.2 Machine Tool Co., Ltd
