Status And Prospects Of CNC Machine Tools Of China In 2019

- Feb 04, 2020-

CNC machine tool is an automatic machine tool with a program control system. The control system can logically process and decode a program specified by a control code or other symbolic instructions, thereby causing the machine to operate and process parts. The CNC machine tool industry is a technology-intensive, capital-intensive, and talent-intensive industry. The upstream industries of CNC machine tools are mainly CNC system, steel casting, machinery parts manufacturing, electronic components and other industries.
Chinese CNC machine tool industry has been developing rapidly, and its position in the international market has gradually increased. From 2015 to 2018, Chinese CNC machine tool industry has developed rapidly; In 2018, the scale of Chinese CNC machine tool market reached 338.9 billion CNY, increase around 10.73% over 2017.


Chinese CNC machine tools are mainly concentrated in JiangSu, LiaoNing and other places
From the perspective of the distribution of CNC machine tool sales in China in 2018, LiaoNing, JiangSu, ShanXi, ZheJiang, and Guangdong are at the forefront, accounting for 26%, 21%, 14%, 9%, and 7%, of the top 10 CNC machine tool sales revenues in China. The concentration of CNC machine tools often also refer to the level of local manufacturing.

The automotive industry is the main downstream application area of the CNC machine tool industry
CNC machine tools are the basic equipment of the equipment manufacturing industry. The downstream industries of CNC machine tools are mainly the automotive industry, power industry, aerospace, electronic information and other industries. Due to differences in manufacturing processes, the types of requirements for CNC machine tools in the downstream industries are also different.
In 2018, among the CNC industry's downstream industry consumption share, the automotive industry accounted for the largest proportion of about 40%; and aerospace ranked second, accounting for about 17%; and the two accounted for about 50% of Chinese total downstream industry consumption. .

Large-scale import of CNC machine tools, mainly imported vertical machining centers
In 2018, China imported the largest number of CNC horizontal lathes among imported CNC machine tools, about 115 million units. And the highest total imports of vertical machining centers, at 1.724 billion U.S. dollars; Among other exports, China exported the largest number of other bending, folding or leveling machine tools, It is 274,400 units, and the maximum export value of CNC horizontal lathes is 362 million US dollars.
From the perspective of export structure, Chinese CNC horizontal lathes account for 26% of Chinese total exports; from the perspective of import structure, Chinese vertical machining centers account for 42% of Chinese total exports.


The forward-looking analysis believes that the size of Chinese CNC machine tool market will continue to grow in the future. It is estimated that by 2024, the scale of Chinese CNC machine tool market will exceed 570 billion yuan.
