At present, the domestic market share of drying equipment in China has reached more than 80%. It is expected that during the â€œ10th Five-Year Planâ€ period, the domestic market share of domestic drying equipment will reach over 90%, and the focus of competition will be mainly on product quality, technical level, after-sales service and price.
According to the China General Machinery Drying Equipment Industry Association, the demand for drying equipment in China will grow significantly in the following areas in the next few years. In the field of grain drying, small drying equipment for rice and wheat drying (below 5 tons/hour) is expected to reach an annual demand of about 1,000 units; the annual demand for chemical drying equipment will reach 3,000 units (sets). Around the year; the annual demand for drying equipment for pharmaceuticals will reach around 3,000 sets (sets); the annual demand for drying equipment for agricultural and forestry products will reach around 2,000 sets (sets); the annual demand for light industrial drying equipment will reach 2000. Taiwan (sets) around.
In the type of drying equipment, hot air heated atmospheric pressure drying equipment and vacuum drying equipment will be mainly used, and other users in special fields such as far-infrared drying equipment and microwave drying equipment will also gradually expand the number of applications; in terms of food and medicine drying, Demand for larger-scale equipment in vacuum freeze-drying equipment will increase; demand for equipment with a combination of functions (eg granulation-drying, drying-filtration) will also increase; high-automated drying equipment will be welcomed in some applications. . In addition, the appearance quality of drying equipment will be more and more emphasized. The corrosion resistance and reliable service life of corrosive material drying equipment will be of particular concern to users.
The fact that China's accession to the WTO has come over the past year proves that the development of the domestic drying equipment industry is expected by experts' expectations and that challenges and opportunities coexist. In terms of the domestic market, as China's drying equipment industry has begun to enter a more mature stage of development, it has been able to better meet the actual needs of users in various fields, and in the price only 1/3 of the same foreign products, which makes our country dry Equipment in the market competition than the imported equipment has a clear price advantage; the other hand, due to the large size of the drying equipment, most of them also involve on-site installation, commissioning and after-sales service and other work, so for domestic users, the choice of domestic equipment It is more convenient to use imported equipment. As far as the international market is concerned, after China's accession to the WTO, it will be more conducive to expanding its exports of drying equipment. At present, the major export products of drying equipment in China are vacuum drying equipment, vibration drying equipment, drying equipment for small and medium grain, food, and agricultural and forestry native products. The annual export volume exceeds 100 units, and the main export areas are Southeast Asia and other developing countries. Has opened the door to Europe and the United States market. At present, China's total export of drying equipment accounts for less than 5% of the total domestically produced drying equipment. Experts estimate that the proportion of export products in the total domestically produced drying equipment will reach more than 10% during the â€œ10th Five-Year Planâ€ period.
In the international competition, the main competitors of China's drying equipment manufacturers are Denmark, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Germany, the United States, and Japan. Comparing with competitors, the advantage of drying equipment in China is low price. The main disadvantage is that the degree of automatic control, appearance quality, completeness of the product, and functional combination need to be further improved.
Therefore, domestic drying equipment manufacturers should take full advantage of China's accession to the WTO, strengthen technical exchanges with foreign countries, learn from the length of foreign advanced drying equipment, and accelerate the improvement of the degree of automatic control of drying equipment in China, the appearance of quality, completeness and functional composition, To narrow the gap with foreign products and improve the trust of our products among users, so that China's drying equipment can not only dominate the domestic market, but also in foreign markets.
The variety of drying equipment that China has produced now is increasing, the scope of application is continuously expanding, the level and quality of products are rapidly improving, and the market competitiveness is constantly increasing. In particular, the Chinese government has issued various policies to support the export of products and created excellent external conditions for domestic drying equipment manufacturers. This shows that the development prospects of China's drying equipment are good.
Drying equipment is widely used in chemical, pharmaceutical, agricultural and forestry native products, food, light industry and other fields, is a wide range of general machinery products. China's drying equipment industry has gone through more than 20 years of history from the formation, development to maturity. At present, the conventional drying equipment needed in the domestic market, as well as the main drying equipment needed in the international market, can basically be manufactured in China. This shows that the history of importing drying equipment in China has ended.
