Analysis of the development status and trend prospects of the reducer industry
The reducer is a component that matches the speed of rotation and transmits torque between the prime mover and the working machine or the actuator. It is an indispensable transmission device and is widely used in modern machinery. According to preliminary statistics, the industries with relatively large amount of reducer are: food machinery, electric machinery, metallurgical machinery, environmental protection machinery, electronic appliances, road construction machinery, chemical machinery, light industry machinery, mining machinery, transportation machinery, construction machinery, building materials. Machinery, cement machinery, rubber machinery, water conservancy machinery, petroleum machinery, etc., the number of gearbox products used in these industries has accounted for 60% - 70% of the total number of reducers used in various industries across the country.
As a traditional manufacturing power, the gearbox products of Germany, Italy, Japan and other countries are in the leading position in terms of materials, design level, quality control, precision, power density, reliability and service life. The international reducer industry has a large market, many market participants, fierce competition in the industry, and low overall concentration. The top ten manufacturers have a market share of about 20% in the international market. The two giants in the industry are SEW and Siemens, and other internationally renowned reducer companies include Lenze, Brevini, Bonfiglioli, Sumitomo, Nord, and Chaogang. Worldwide, the main production and sales of speed reducers are Europe, Asia and North America.
The reducer industry is one of the basic industries of the national economy. Its products are widely used in various downstream sectors, and its development is closely related to the trend of the national economy. In recent years, with the steady development of China's economy, the scale of the reducer market has continued to grow. And present the following characteristics:
1. Formed an industry with large scale, complete categories and solid foundation
China's reducer industry has basically formed a production system with complete categories and meeting the supporting needs of downstream industries. It has become one of the largest industries in China's mechanical basic parts and components, providing important support and guarantee for the development of the national economy.
2. Industry integration speed is accelerating
The number of small and medium-sized enterprises producing gearboxes in China is large, small in scale and fiercely competitive. With the development of China's national economy and the improvement of manufacturing level, customers pay more and more attention to the quality, after-sales service and brand influence of reducer products. More customers tend to buy large enterprises with quality and service guarantee. product. The profit margin of small and medium-sized enterprises has declined, the speed of industry integration has accelerated, and the market share of large reducer companies has continued to increase.
3. The market entry threshold continues to increase
As an important driving component of mechanical equipment, the reducer has certain technical thresholds in product design and process technology. It has high requirements on product design level, processing precision and running stability, and puts forward higher requirements for reducer manufacturing enterprises. However, compared with foreign countries, there is still a big gap in the level of reducer in China. The outstanding problem with the foreign gear reducer industry is that the industry's overall new product development capability is weak, process innovation and management level are low.
With the rapid development of the domestic economy in recent years, the export volume of the heavy machinery industry has increased, and the speed reducer industry, which is an important basic industry, has developed extremely rapidly. The reducer company is expanding its production and sales scale, and its processing capacity and technical level continue to improve. The future technological process of China's reducer industry still needs to be continuously improved to stabilize the competitiveness of the international market. The future of the reducer industry will be very good.
