For the spring industry, there has been a passive situation that the supply of low-grade ordinary springs exceeds the demand and the supply of high-grade products (high strength, high stress, heterosexual parts and special materials) exceeds the demand for a long time. The output of China’s spring industry has become saturated.
According to expert statistics, the annual production of China’s spring has reached 4 billion pieces. There are 21 categories and more than 1600 varieties of spring products, mainly including valve spring, suspension spring, diaphragm spring, damping spring, hydraulic spring, oil pump spring, disc spring, high temperature spring, snap spring, tension spring, torsion spring, compression spring, scroll spring and heterosexual spring.
The spring industry developed rapidly during the eighth and ninth five year plans, especially in Shanghai, Tianjin, Guangzhou, Shandong, Changchun, Chongqing and other regions. Other regions also developed to varying degrees. Generally speaking, it is better than other industries. The development of automobile, motorcycle, moped, internal combustion engine, electrical and instrument industries will drive the development of spring industry.
In the face of the macroeconomic situation, the contradictions of low product quality, loose organizational structure and weak development ability accumulated by the industry for a long time have become more prominent. From the deep-seated mining, it is mainly the problems of market, system and mechanism.
The industrial insight researcher believes that with the transformation of the national economy from the seller’s market to the buyer’s market, some deep-seated contradictions, especially the structural contradictions accumulated over the years, have become increasingly prominent.
At present, the unreasonable industrial structure is manifested as follows: some industries have excess production capacity and unreasonable product structure; Unreasonable technical structure and low level of main industrial equipment; The enterprise organization is small and scattered, lacks competitive strength and advantages, and the regional structure converges, which fails to reflect the comparative advantage and cooperation benefits.
Although the spring industry is a small industry in the whole manufacturing industry, its role cannot be underestimated. The country’s industrial manufacturing and automobile industry should speed up the development, and the spring industry, as one of the basic parts and components, needs a super early stage of development in order to adapt to the rapid development of the country’s whole industry.
In addition, the expansion of the scale and variety of spring products and the improvement of the quality level are also the needs of the renewal of mechanical equipment and the improvement of the performance of supporting hosts. Therefore, spring products play an important role in the development of the whole national industry.
The daily necessities industry and hardware industry, including lighters, toys, locks, door hinges, fitness devices, mattresses, sofas, etc., have the largest demand for springs in terms of quantity, with tens of billions of pieces. The technical requirements are not high and the price is very low. They are generally produced by small spring factories scattered all over the country.
They have unique advantages in cost, and it is difficult for large spring factories to compete with them. Therefore, it also leads to the birth of new spring enterprises from time to time. In the future, the market demand will increase at the rate of 7% ~ 10% per year. After China’s entry into WTO, the export volume of daily hardware products has increased significantly, and the demand for springs has been driven.
However, affected by the demand of the international market and trade barriers, the international market has its uncertain side
