China's hardware tool industry is about to usher in five new changes
Although China has nearly 6,000 hardware tool manufacturers, it is still not a strong country. From the perspective of history, the world hardware tool manufacturing industry has experienced the process of transferring from European and American countries to Japan, Taiwan, and India, and then from Japan, Taiwan, and India to China. In the coastal Yangtze River Delta, Pearl River Delta and other regions, most of China's hardware tool enterprises are still mainly based on rough imitation for processing and export trade, or for the United States, Japan and many other major economic sales OEMs.
The exploration of China's hardware tool industry also gives a new direction for the development of the hardware tool industry in the future. Comparing the development of the international hardware tool industry with the current situation of China's hardware tool industry, the hardware tool industry will face adapting to the market, participating in international competition, and aiming at the world's advanced , Adjusting the product structure and expanding the competition space is the development road of China's hardware tools.
To change the current production mode of rough imitation of hardware tools and transform to high-quality hardware At present, most of the products produced by Shanghai tool companies are old-fashioned, with rough processing, low energy level and high energy consumption. Most companies use carbon steel materials as hardware. Tool production substrate. The profit of the product is about 8-10%. The profit of a wire cutter and a wrench is only a few cents, and the selling price is only below 10 yuan. The raw materials used in the production of foreign hardware tools are mainly chrome vanadium alloy steel. The price of the high-quality hardware tools produced is about 100 yuan, which is 10 times the price difference, which is not commensurate with the status of Shanghai's metropolis, and domestic and foreign businesses and advanced manufacturing are all looking forward to high-quality products.
Due to low cost and fierce competition, most companies rely on lowering the price of their products to gain market access. In this way, the profit of the enterprise is very low, and basically it can only achieve the state of maintaining production, but it is difficult to make money. The consequences are low product prices, low added value, and low profits, and the company does not have enough funds for sustainable development.
In the current hardware industry market, the German market is large, and with the progress of time, the demand is gradually increasing, and, according to the nature of Germans, they will definitely use hardware tools, and Germany will definitely It will become the main market for hardware industry consumption.
Compared with manual tools, electric tools greatly reduce labor intensity, improve work efficiency, and realize mechanization of manual operation due to their controllability and operability. Compared with pneumatic tools, they are less expensive and easier to control. With the progress of the times, the innovation of science and technology, and the development of society, pneumatic tools will gradually grow into the backbone of the hardware industry.
