Since 2017, the textile machinery industry as a whole has been running steadily and steadily. From January to August, textile machinery enterprises above the scale realized 83.521 billion yuan in main business income, an increase of 12.46% over the same period of last year, and realized a total profit of 5.915 billion yuan, an increase of 21.91% over the same period of last year. From January to August, textile machinery imports and exports totaled 4.4 billion US dollars, an increase of 18.52% over the same period last year.
Gao Yong, Secretary-General and secretary-general of the Party Committee of China Textile Industry Federation, made a brief analysis of the operation of the textile industry this year, and reminded the textile machinery enterprises to pay close attention to market changes and to the risks brought by the sharp rise in raw material prices under the generally good market situation and product orders.
Gao Yong said that China's textile industry has entered a new era and the stage of rapid expansion has passed. Although the main business income of the industry still has a relatively high growth rate, the growth of fiber processing volume has not been much. The textile production equipment is constantly updated and upgraded, and the production capacity is centralized to superior enterprises; leading enterprises in the industry are developing to both ends of the industrial chain.
These are the obvious trends of current industry development. Textile machinery manufacturers should be prepared for these trends. They should combine host design, process design and special parts design, and consider them together with intelligent manufacturing. He suggested that all textile machinery enterprises form groups or alliances to jointly respond to this new industrial development situation. For the trend of industrial transfer under the "one belt and one way" strategy, Gao Yong believes that with the rapid upgrading of labor costs in Southeast Asia and other countries, the pace of "going global" will slow down. He suggested that textile machinery enterprises should unite to establish a comprehensive after-sales service platform to promote the export of textile machinery products.
Speaking of the present situation and future of China's textile machinery industry, Wang Shutian, president of China Textile Machinery Association, put forward some questions worthy of our careful consideration: Where does the rapid development of the industry originate? Where does our confidence come from? What achievements have we made in these years? What are the problems that need to be avoided? Is there excess competition in the current industry? Is cooperation feasible? It is necessary to think about these problems.
On the other hand, at present, the application of new materials in textile field is expanding, so we should consider the problem from the angle of "big textile". For example, the industrial textile industry has shown the trend of cross-border development of product technology, which deserves attention. In recent years, with the development of computer, Internet and other technologies, people's lifestyle and manufacturing industry are facing changes. The spinning machine entrepreneurs should think about this and have their own strategic positioning.
