During China's "Thirteenth Five-Year Plan" period, the main technical research and development direction of the textile machinery industry such as the manufacturing of weaving machines, non woven machines, and cloth cutting machines was aimed at the intelligentsia of textile equipment products and equipment manufacturing technologies, that is, to provide intelligent production solutions by developing the numerical control level and intelligence of textile equipment and improving intelligent auxiliary systems for downstream textile factories.
General Report on the Textile Machinery Industry Status
It is mentioned in the "Guiding Opinions on the Development of the Textile Machinery Industry during the 14th Five-Year Plan" that maintaining a stable development of the industrial economy based on quality improvement is the goal of the textile machinery industry. And keep the average annual growth of operating income within a reasonable range with steadily increasing exports to account for the global market share, for striving to make the domestic market share of textile equipment stabilized at about 80%, the export value of domestic textile machinery remains over 20% of the world.
It also needs to focus on the 6 key projects of the textile machinery industry, which include eco-friendly textile production equipment, textile intelligent processing equipment, high-tech textile equipment, intelligent manufacturing and upgrading of textile machinery enterprises, textile machinery technology, and textile machinery standard system, and need to further promote the ten sub-fields development for forming an industrial layout with complementary advantages and regional synergy.
According to the data from the China Research Institute of the textile machinery industry, the total profit of China's textile machinery industry is about 9.45 billion RMB, which is an increase of 13.04% compared with the previous year. And there are more than 705 enterprises with designated size in China's textile machinery industry, and about 347,000 employees, which has increased by 2.66% compared with the previous year.
Market Demand of Textile Machinery Industry
The development of the textile industry has driven the development of the textile machinery industry. Currently, China is the largest textile and apparel producer and exporter in the world with a complete industrial chain layout, which means the whole textile industry is a pillar industry of the Chinese national economy and an essential private production industry. The volume of our fiber processing accounts for over 50% of the world with the largest scale of the textile industry that ranks top in the world.
The trend of structural adjustment of China's textile industry has become clear now with stepping into a "critical moment" for accelerating transformation and upgrading.
According to the development direction of the textile industry, we need to strengthen sustainability in industry development. Therefore, the automation, continuous, high-speed, intelligent, and large-capacity textile machinery equipment sales increased significantly. Additionally, some high-end equipment must be used to make full use of fibers and to increase the added value of products because of the current global shortage of raw materials such as cotton and the demand trend of the textile machinery industry will be more obvious in the next 5-10 years.
Competition Analysis of the Textile Machinery Industry
Germany, Italy, Switzerland, and other countries that have strong competition in textile machinery production are the main competitive countries in the world in recent years. China's textile machinery manufacturing industry has also continued to expand its scale driven by domestic and Asian market demand. The global textile machinery market totals USD25.4 billion with Asian textile manufacturers investing the most in the advanced equipment area.
Nearly 90% of the world's exports of modern spinning machines, shuttleless weaving machines, and flat knitting machines are imported into Asia, especially China. Some world-level textile machinery enterprises have continuously set up or invested in factories in China, which means that Asia still is the center of the textile and apparel manufacturing industry with the production scale of these textile machinery factories has reached the entire Chinese textile machinery.
