New trends in China's instrument industry

in 2009, the domestic instrument industry continued to be in a golden period of development. According to the latest statistics of China Instrument and meter industry association, the output value of instrument and meter industry reached 104billion yuan from January to May 2009, with a year-on-year increase of 28%; The sales revenue reached 98.1 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 28.1%; The profit reached 6.8 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 44.5%

dongjingchen, Deputy Secretary General of China Instrument and meter industry association, predicts that the growth rate of the instrument industry in 2007 will remain at a high level, and will maintain the development speed of last year at least, and even the growth rate may be 2-4 percentage points higher than that of last year

so far, the instrumentation industry has maintained a high economic performance for six consecutive years

"This is somewhat different from our prediction last year. We originally expected that the growth rate of this year would decline, but from the current situation, the growth rate of the instrument industry has not slowed down. I think there are two main reasons. One is that the national economy is still operating at a high level; according to past experience, if the GDP growth is more than 10%, the growth rate of the instrument industry is between 26% and 30%. The other is the impact of national macro-control on the instrument industry The impact has a lag period, and the instruments are often delivered and used in the late stage of the project. Therefore, the investment reduced due to macro-control policies will not have a great impact on the instrument industry this year. " Dongjingchen said

however, although the instrument industry in 2009 continued the trend of rapid development in the past, it also showed some new trends different from the past

foreign enterprises adjust their investment strategies in China

foreign instrument and meter enterprises began to change the original investment mode dominated by sole proprietorship. This change is mainly reflected in two aspects: one is to start to focus on the acquisition and merger of domestic excellent production enterprises; the other is that the proportion of commissioned production continues to rise

in the past oneortwo years, foreign-funded enterprises have made extensive contacts with domestic excellent enterprises and proposed acquisition intentions. However, there are not many successes. Up to now, there is still a need for further research in different fields. So far, only some well-known enterprises in the domestic instrument industry, Xinhua company, have been acquired by GE. However, according to people familiar with the matter, the acquisition did not bring rapid development to Xinhua after the acquisition

in fact, it is not easy for foreign enterprises to acquire excellent domestic enterprises. At present, the government's support for the instrument industry is increasing. Only last year and the first half of this year, the Ministry of science and technology has set up six research topics on instruments, with government financial support of more than 100million yuan. This unprecedented support has given domestic excellent instrument manufacturing enterprises a broader space for development

in addition, more and more foreign enterprises have begun to adopt the method of commissioned processing and production in China, such as Siemens, Honeywell, etc. are looking for domestic enterprises to commission their products. Dongjingchen said that this is a good thing for domestic instrument manufacturing enterprises. In the process of commissioned production and processing, according to the quality requirements of internationally renowned enterprises, we can constantly improve the technical level of the enterprise itself. The most typical example is that as the entrusted production unit of Siemens electromagnetic flowmeter, Beijing Ruipu Sanyuan company has also begun to export its own electromagnetic flowmeter products to Europe

low value-added products are facing transformation

dongjingchen said that the instrument industry had an obvious feature in the first half of 2009, that is, the growth rate of low value-added products decreased significantly. In January, the output value of electrical instruments increased by only 18.8%, significantly lower than the 28% growth rate of the industry

as a flagship product with a single export of more than 100 million US dollars, the development of watt hour meters also encountered obstacles in the first half of the year: the growth of its export output value was only 19%, which was much lower than the average growth rate of instrument industry exports. Dongjingchen believes that the current foreign market has put forward higher requirements for the performance of watt hour meters, and the traditional mechanical watt hour meters can no longer meet the needs of foreign markets

at present, domestic watt hour meter manufacturers have basically completed the transformation to electronic watt hour meters. The output value of electronic watt hour meter has exceeded that of mechanical watt hour meter, and has become the mainstream product of watt hour meter

domestic enterprises are optimistic about the international market

in the first half of this year, the export value of instrument products increased rapidly, with a year-on-year increase of nearly 38%. However, the export amount of the instrument industry is not high, only US $6.8 billion in 2008. However, this situation may change. Dongjingchen believes that the technical level and quality of domestic instruments and meters are constantly improving. In the field of mid-range products, the performance price ratio has certain advantages, and it also has considerable competitiveness in the international market. At the same time, according to the prediction of the China Instrument Industry Association, the growth rate of the domestic instrument industry is likely to slow down in 2008. In such an environment, domestic instrument manufacturing enterprises have turned their attention to the international market, and made up for the reduced domestic market share by expanding exports

in dongjingchen's view, enterprises should not only do this, but also start from the aspects of technological innovation and service improvement. On the one hand, they should improve the added value and sales through new initial products, on the other hand, they should extend the service connotation of instrument products and constantly improve their own benefit level by carrying out system integration and providing solutions and other services. At present, in order to improve economic efficiency, large users often outsource the maintenance of automatic instruments, and service outsourcing has become a trend in this international rubber and plastic exhibition. It is understood that Wuzhong Instrument Co., Ltd. has set up more than a dozen maintenance sites across the country, with a maintenance income of more than 30 million yuan in only one year. "Instrument manufacturing enterprises should be good at grasping such opportunities." Dongjingchen said earnestly
