It is expected that the output figures of various types of plastic machines in 2014 will be roughly flat

the trade surplus of China's injection molding machine industry increased significantly in 2013, reaching $200million, four times that of 2012. This is mainly due to the sharp decline in imports. China has become the world's largest producer of plastic machines, but in the past, a large number of plastic machines were imported from Germany, Japan and other places, not to mention the second generation materials, which contributed to the stability of the export business of these countries

however, 2012 and 2013 brought a symbolic change, maintaining a trade surplus of plastic machines for two consecutive years. Industry managers said that this reflected two major trends: first, more multinational equipment manufacturers began to build factories in China, and second, the local industry was more technologically advanced

according to the statistics of China Plastics Machinery Industry Association, the export volume of China's injection molding machines in 2013 reached 951 million US dollars, the import volume was 735 million US dollars, and the surplus was 216 million US dollars. In contrast, the surplus in 2012 was US $49 million, the export value was US $921 million and the import value was US $872 million. Haitian International Holdings Co., Ltd., China's largest plastic machine manufacturer, released the above statistics at the analyst meeting in March

by contrast, China's trade deficit in injection molding machines exceeded US $350million in 2010. Haitian said that multinational companies' factories in China are increasingly buying Chinese made equipment when making capital investment. Helmar Franz, chief strategy officer of Ningbo based Haitian International, said that multinational companies operating in China are increasingly buying local equipment

"in the past, they usually bought equipment from abroad, which was regarded as import. Now, according to my observation, the situation is very different." Franz, who worked in Germany Demag Plastics Group for a long time and joined Haitian in 2005, said that these enterprises' production in China is increasingly focused on the local market rather than mainly for export, and they are more willing to buy Chinese made equipment in China

"in Germany, buying plastic machines made in China is a 'sin'.". Franz said, "well, that's an exaggeration. It's not a crime, it's a disaster, but in China, no one cares." The decrease in imports also reflects the significant growth in the Chinese market last year

the Plastics Machinery Association said that in 2013, the domestic sales of Chinese plastic machinery manufacturers rose 12% to US $6.75 billion, but officials of the association expected the growth rate to slow to about 5% this year. The trend of multinational plastic equipment manufacturers increasing investment in China was also reflected in the Chinaplas held in Shanghai at the end of April, where the elasticity and flame retardancy of this material can be used to meet the requirements of pipeline products. Many companies have announced new investment plans

Engel group announced the latest progress of Yintai business. At present, it is building a factory in Changzhou to produce new brand standard models for Asian customers. Miracron, an American machinery manufacturer, said it was doubling the capacity of its Jiangyin plant in Jiangsu Province by using flat surface vibrators or by inserting vibrators, while Japan Nissin Resin Industry Co., Ltd. said it planned to build a new plant in Taicang, Jiangsu Province, in December, which was its second plant in China

Hozumi Yoda, President of Nikkei, said that the new plant mainly supplies the Chinese market, but he said that Nikkei may supply some injection molding machines and parts from Taicang to the headquarters factory in Nagano. Japan's injection molding machine industry has been gradually expanding its production overseas, mainly in China and Southeast Asia, but the figures of the Japan Plastics Machinery Association show that this trend shows signs of decline

Yoda, President of the Japan Plastics Machinery Association, headquartered in Tokyo, said that the output of injection molding machines in Japan's plastics machinery industry in 2013 was about 11900 units, and the overseas output was 2500 units. It is expected that the output of various types of plastics machines in 2014 will be roughly the same or increase by about 100 units
