With the development of the economy, the plastic mold industry increasingly fierce competition, the industry pointed out that the current mold industry presents five operating characteristics, a single custom production mode, product differentiation is obvious; mold manufacturing enterprises average sales lower; industry technology Level compared with the developed countries still exist a large gap; regional concentration is high; high-end mold products, domestic production and demand contradictions.
Single-piece production mode, product differentiation significantly
Plastic molds are a special process equipment, each product is designed for a specific plastic parts and products. At each time to undertake orders, plastic mold manufacturers need to be in accordance with the technical information provided by customers to design and manufacture, that is, most of the plastic mold is unique, differentiated characteristics of the technical requirements of the high, is a typical Single-piece production.
Mold production enterprises average sales lower
Plastic mold industry does not belong to the standardization industry, the essence of mold design ideas and mold structure is reasonable, are highly innovative, high-tech, high precision and high value-added industries. Plastic mold is a kind of personalized strong custom products, different plastic mold has obvious differences.
Therefore, the plastic mold is mainly one-piece custom production. Moreover, the plastic mold can be used longer life, a set of molds can produce more than hundreds of thousands of plastic products. Therefore, the downstream manufacturing enterprises demand for mold products less, resulting in mold business sales lower. According to the China Mold Industry Association data, in 2011 China's plastic mold production enterprises (plant, point) about 20,000, according to the 2011 plastic mold industry total sales of about 56 billion yuan, the industry average annual sales of plastic mold enterprises Higher than 300 million, the average capacity is small, the industry concentration is not high.
There is still a wide gap between the technical level of the industry and the developed countries
In recent years, China's mold industry has been in the past to fitter as the core of the extensive workshop-style business, and gradually transition to technology-based, design-centered intensive modern operation, industry technical level improved significantly.
High regional concentration
Mold industry development needs a certain upstream and downstream industry support, especially and downstream manufacturing industry is very close. Mold products are intermediate products, the main customers for the downstream manufacturing terminal products manufacturer. Therefore, China's plastic mold enterprises are mainly distributed in the Yangtze River Delta, Pearl River Delta region and other manufacturing developed areas, including Guangdong, Shanghai, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Shandong and other provinces and cities plastic mold industry is more developed, accounting for the vast majority of China's plastic mold industry output value The
High-end mold products, domestic production and demand contradictions
As China's plastic mold in the number, quality and technical capacity, and the world's advanced level is still a large gap, the products are mainly concentrated in the middle and low mold market, making the domestic demand for plastic mold products in recent years, imports continued to grow. Although the overall plastic mold industry in China to maintain the pattern of import and export surplus, but the domestic large, sophisticated, complex, long-life high-end mold products still need to import each year, China's automobile, home appliances and other long-term development of the host industry A certain adverse effect.
