Press Release of CMTBA at EMO Hannover 2019

Ladies and gentlemen,

First of all, on behalf of CMTBA (China Machine Tool & Tool Builders’ Association), I would like to express my sincere gratitude and warm welcome to all of you attending this press conference!

Next, I would love to share information on the operation of China’s economy, market and machine tool & tool industry, and briefly introduce to you the CCMT2020 (China CNC Machine Tool Fair 2020) to be held in Shanghai, China on April 7th-11th.

I. Macroeconomic Situation in China

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China. In the past 7 decades, especially since the reform and opening up of China in 1978, Chinese industry has been growing at an unprecedented speed. The industrial value added increased from 12 billion Yuan in 1952 to 30.516 trillion Yuan in 2018. Calculated at constant price, it has increased 970.6 times, with an average annual growth rate of 11.0%. In 2010, the value added in the manufacturing of China surpassed that of the US for the first time, making China the world’s largest manufacturer. Since then, China has ranked first in the world for many consecutive years. In 2017, China’s manufacturing value added accounted for 27.0% of the world’s total. At present, China is the only country in the world that has all the industrial categories in the UN industrial classification catalogue. Therefore, China has a huge market demand for metalworking machine tools & tools. According to statistics from Gardner, a US company, the consumption of metalworking machine tools in China accounted for 31.4% of the global total in 2018.

After the global financial crisis in 2008, China’s economy has shifted from a high-speed growth stage to a high-quality development stage, with the focus put on deepening supply-side structural reforms, continuously optimizing the industrial structure, and nurturing new growth drivers. In 2018, the value added in high-tech manufacturing accounted for 13.9% of the valued added of industrial enterprises above 20-million Yuan.

From the GDP growth curve, it can be seen that China’s GDP growth rate has gradually decreased in recent years. However, its GDP exceeded 90 trillion Yuan (equivalent to 13.6 trillion US dollars) in 2018 for the first time, which reflects the transformation and upgrading of its economy.

In the first half of 2019, the GDP registered 45.0933 trillion Yuan, up by 6.3% year on year calculated at comparable price. The annual target of 6.0%-6.5% is expected to be achieved. Alongside the rapid GDP growth, employment is relatively stable, commodity prices remain basically the same, and residents’ incomes grow comparatively faster. The energy consumption per 10,000 Yuan of GDP fall by 2.7% on a Y-o-Y basis.

In the first half of 2019, the total import and export of goods was 14.6675 trillion yuan, a YoY increase of 3.9%. Among them, import accounted for 6.7155 trillion yuan, up 1.4%, and export accounted for 7.9521 trillion Yuan, up 6.1%. With import and export offsetting each other, the trade surplus was 1.2366 trillion Yuan, a Y-o-Y increase of 41.6%.

According to the growth curve of fixed assets investment, the growth rate of fixed assets investment in the whole society has slowly decreased for several years, but the secondary industry obviously accelerated in 2018, and has returned to the average level of recent years since this year. In the first half of 2019, the country’s total fixed assets investment accomplished increased 5.8% on a Y-o-Y basis. Among them, industrial investment rose 2.9%, and manufacturing investment rose 3.0% on a Y-o-Y basis.

According to the growth curve of industrial value added, the growth rate of industrial value added maintained a growth trend in 2016 and 2017, and declined since the second half of 2018. From January to June 2019, industrial value added increased 6.0% on a Y-o-Y basis, in which manufacturing increased 6.4%.

It can be seen from the variation of PMI curve of the manufacturing industry that PMI was increasing from the second half of 2016 to the end of 2018, and has fluctuated greatly since this year, below the 50% critical point in May, June and July (49.4%, 49.4%, and 49.7%).

In summary, China’s economic growth has maintained a generally steady and progressive development trend since this year. The main macroeconomic indicators are operating in a reasonable range and the economic structure is being optimized and adjusted. However, anti-globalization, trade protectionism and geopolitical conflicts have intensified, and the global economic development is facing new challenges. The downward pressure on China’s economy has increased.

II. Machine Tool & Tool Market in China

1. Demand for metalworking machine tools in China in 2010-2018

According to the consumption curve of metalworking machine tools in China in 2011-2018, after reaching the record high value in 2011, the total consumption declined, and was basically stable after 2015. In 2018, the total consumption of metalworking machine tools in China was 29.13 billion US dollars, a slight decrease of 2.8% from 2017.

2. Import and export of metalworking machine tools & tools and measuring instruments in China in 2010-2018

According to the three curves showing the import and export of metal cutting machine tools, metal forming machine tools, and tools and measuring instruments in China in 2010-2018, after reaching the peak value in 2012, the import and export of metal cutting machine tools have been fluctuating and growing in recent years. After the peak value in 2011, the import of metal forming machine tools has been going down, while the export steadily growing. The import and export of tools and measuring instruments have been in a steady upward trend.

III. Operation of the Machine Tool & Tool Industry in China

1. Composition of enterprises in China’s machine tool & tool industry

The National Bureau of Statistics of China only conducts statistics on machine tool & tool enterprises above 20-million Yuan in annual revenue with industrial legal person. In June 2019, China had a total of 5,547 machine tool & tool enterprises of this kind, involving eight sub-industries. Among them, 782 were metal cutting machine tool enterprises, accounting for 14.1%; 540 were metal forming machine tool enterprises, accounting for 9.7%; 705 were tool and measuring instrument enterprises, accounting for 12.7%. See the figure in the PPT document for details.

2. Operation revenue changes of the metalworking machine tool & tool and measuring instrument sub-industries, and the output of metalworking machine tools in January-June 2019

According to the data of National Bureau of Statistics of China, the cumulative operation revenue achieved from the machine tool & tool industry in January-June 2019 decreased 2.3% on a Y-o-Y basis. Among them, the cumulative operation revenue achieved from the metal cutting machine tool industry decreased 15.4% on a Y-o-Y basis, that of the metal forming machine tool industry decreased 1.7% on a Y-o-Y basis, and that of the tool and measuring instrument sub-industries decreased 0.2% on a Y-o-Y basis. The output of metal cutting machine tools fell 10.3% on a Y-o-Y basis, and that of metal forming machine tools fell 5.1% on a Y-o-Y basis.

According to the curve, the year-on-year data of the above indicators showed high points in March and lower values in April-June. This kind of situation was related to the decrease in the growth rate of fixed assets investment and the continuous decline of the automobile industry in the same periods.

3. Import and export of metalworking machine tool, tools and measuring instruments in January-June 2019

(1) Overall situation

According to Chinese customs data, the total import value of the machine tool & tool industry in January-June 2019 was 6.95 billion US dollars, down 20.6% on a Y-o-Y basis.

IV. Characteristics of the Operation of China Machine Tool & Tool Industry

1. The total market demand shrinks and the demand structure is upgraded

At present, China’s economy has shifted from a high-speed growth stage to a high-quality development stage. The Y-o-Y growth rate of fixed assets investment has significantly decreased. Therefore, the rapid growth of the total market demand for metalworking machine tools is difficult to reproduce. Nonetheless, with the overall technological improvement in China’s manufacturing industry, the level of demand for machine tool is constantly improving, and the demand for precision, composite, automatic and intelligent machine tools as well as the application of IoT will become more and more common.

2. Enterprises strive to transform and upgrade themselves to respond to market changes

With the above market changes, in recent years, Chinese machine tool & tool enterprises have kept up with the market demand, adjusted the product structure, and sought transformation and upgrading. Some have achieved good results.

3. Export continues to grow and structure improved

In the past, China’s machine tool industry mainly exported small, common and low-end machine tools. With the continuous improvement of the technological level and quality of Chinese machine tool products, the export of medium and large-sized, mid-end and above CNC machine tools has been gradually increasing in recent years.

V. Forecast for 2019

To sum up, in the second half of 2019, China’s machine tool & tool industry will generally maintain a continuous upward trend in demand. Structural changes in demand will be obvious, and the total demand will show a downward trend. The sub-industries will perform differently. It is predicted that the main economic indicators of the industry throughout the year will show a Y-o-Y huge downward pressure.

VI. Introduction to CCMT2020

China CNC Machine Tool Fair is a brand exhibition launched by CMTBA in Shanghai in 2000. It is held once every two years and has been successfully held for ten sessions. It aims to build a first-class exhibiting, communicating and marketing platform for top domestic and foreign exhibitors in the most economically active region in China.

1. Previous exhibitions

CCMT2000, the 1st China CNC Machine Tool Fair, was held in Shanghai in 2000. The exhibition was sponsored by CMTBA and was a sister exhibition of CIMT (China International Machine Tool Show) in Beijing. The exhibition was originally a domestic show. With the active participation of international exhibitors and visitors, its internationalization has become increasingly striking.
