According to different application fields, mold products can be divided into automotive molding, IT molding, home appliance mould, OA equipment molding, medical molding and metal molds.
Among them, automotive molding are known as "mother of automobile industry", because more than 90% of parts in automobile production rely on mold forming, and average mold consumption per 10,000 cars is 0.12 tons. In developed countries of automobile manufacturing industry such as United States and Japan, more than 40% of mold industry's products are automotive molding, and about one-third of China's mold products are for automobile manufacturing industry.
In recent years, along with prosperity of China's automobile industry, demand for automotive molding market has been rapidly released, and scale has continued to grow. Data shows that new demand for automotive molding in China has increased from 221 tons in 2011 to 348 tons in 2017, and market size has increased from 54.7 billion yuan in 2011 to 88.8 billion yuan in 2017.
IT molding involve many products, including computer peripheral molding, office equipment / consumer molding, multimedia digital product molding, optoelectronic communication product molding, network product molding, and semiconductor molding. Compared with other mold products, IT molding products have characteristics of time urgency, product uniqueness and close integration with IT technology.
As an important basic equipment for information industry, IT molding have developed rapidly and have become an indispensable tool for mass production and new product development. According to driving effect of mold industry 1:100, sales revenue of China's IT molding in 2017 was about 142 billion yuan. It is estimated that sales revenue of China's IT molding will reach 155 billion yuan in 2018.
Home appliance mould are mainly used in manufacture of home appliance parts. One refrigerator requires about 350 sets of molds, one air conditioner needs 20 pairs of plastic molding, and one color TV requires about 140 sets of molds. According to this calculation, in 2017, demand for molds in China's refrigerators reached 24.28 billion pairs, demand for air conditioners for plastic molding reached 2.89 billion pairs, and demand for color TVs for molds was 19.3 billion pairs.
OA equipment molding market follows development of OA equipment market. OA equipment is generally composed of plastic parts, hardware and chips. Plastic products mainly include appearance parts and structural parts. Molding method is generally injection molding using plastic molding. Data shows that in 2017, market size of plastic molding for OA equipment is about 3.6 billion yuan, and it is expected to reach 4 billion yuan in 2018.
Medical molding is used in almost all medical device parts, ranging from hyperbaric oxygen chambers to hearing aids and cardiac pacemakers. Moreover, medical molding occupy an important position in medical device industry due to precise requirements for production of medical device parts. According to driving effect of mold industry 1:100, market size of medical molding in 2017 was about 2.384 billion yuan.
Metal mold is used in industrial production, using various presse machine and special tools mounted on press machine to produce metal parts into parts of desired shape by pressure. This special tool is collectively referred to as a metal mold. In recent years, China's hardware molds have grown at an average rate of more than 15%, more than double average domestic GDP. This is mainly due to development of China's automobile, home appliance, IT industry, packaging, building materials, daily necessities and other large mold user industries.
  • Regional distribution is consistent with downstream applications
In automotive molding market, there are about 300 automobile mold manufacturers in china, but most of mold manufacturers in china are small in scale and limited in technology and equipment. Therefore, competition in low-end market is fierce, while number of mold manufacturers in china with competitive strength in high-end market is still small and has a large room for development.
Due to influence of its application industry and industry characteristics, IT molding are concentrated in Zhejiang, Shanghai, Jiangsu, Guangdong and other regions. Major mold manufacturers in china include Foxconn Technology Group, Konka Group Co., Ltd., Yihe Precision Industry Holdings Co., Ltd., Yuming Group and so on.
Home appliance mould are also closely related to home appliance production, mainly in Guangdong, Anhui, Jiangsu, and Shandong. These four provinces account for more than 70% of market. In addition, domestic home appliance mould account for more than 80% of market share, and molds with higher molding technology requirements have also achieved import substitution.
Market for OA equipment has a relatively low threshold, so market is in a more dispersed state. Among them, Gud Mould Industry Limited is a leading enterprise in sub-sector industry specializing in production of OA equipment molding. It is a large-scale OA equipment mold manufacturers in china.
Regional distribution of medical molding market is generally consistent with medical devices, mainly in Jiangsu, Guangdong, Shandong, Beijing, Jiangxi, Henan, Shanghai, Liaoning, Zhejiang, Jilin and other provinces; hardware molds are mainly concentrated in Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Shanghai, Guangdong. Shandong, Shandong and other places are also consistent with regional distribution of hardware tools market.
