The Chinese metal fabrication equipment industry is expected to grow significantly, majorly driven by the development of the construction and manufacturing sectors. China has been continuously acting as a significant player in enhancing the demand for automobiles, which further supported the growth of metal forming equipment across the Asian and global regions. With increasing number of industries concentrated in China and the rise of the country as a manufacturing hub of the world, there has been a high demand for steel fabrication. This may certainly propel the demand for metal fabrication equipment in the coming years. Its reviving economic growth is also helping boost the demand in this sector. It is the key driver for the metal fabrication equipment market in Asia-Pacific, inferable from the unfaltering monetary advancement that prodded production exercises in the nation in the course of the most recent decade. This led to the requirement for the generation of gear and apparatuses required for assembling exercises.

Key Market Trends

Metal Cutting Equipment Pose Huge Potential in the Present Scenario

The Chinese economy is spurred by strong growth in the industrial machinery and transportation equipment industries, as well as in the electrical and the electronics market, owing to metal cutting and the related equipment used to carry out various procedures in the fabrication process. Additionally, a continuing shift in the product mix toward higher-value product types, such as multitasking machine equipment, may help drive future market gains, in terms of value. Moreover, increasing regulations regarding energy conservation are likely to lead to growth in demand for energy-efficient machining equipment. The segment is also benefitting from a relatively wider range of applications in durable goods production and a comparatively greater variety of metal cutting equipment product types. Growing demand for the highly advanced and comprehensive metal cutting machines, mainly for the machining centers and multitasking machines, may further boost product sales.

Construction Industry Offers Immense Demand Growth for the Metal Fabrication Industry

The construction industry in China is registering a CAGR of over 8%, and it is expected to grow further in the coming years. Commercial building construction was growing at a faster rate than residential buildings, and infrastructure construction was also picking at 7%. Though the industry took a blow in 2019, owing to the trade war with the United States and the slowing economic growth, it is now on a revival spree and growing at a significant pace. For the effective management of several projects, the Chinese government is betting on the transportation fixed asset investment (FAI,) with railways and subways as the main driving segments. Several favorable policy changes in the reserve ratios of banks resulted in high liquidity, thus, boosting the new project investments and smoothening cash flow for construction companies. While subway FAI is likely to increase due to the continuation of private sector involvement, railway FAI is expected to be equivalent to the highest level of 2017. Slow GDP growth and increasing trade war may lead the Chinese government to increase its spending in the infrastructure construction sectors to pace up its economy. Over the short- to medium-term, spending in transportation can see a rise, which may be favorable for the infrastructure sector, specifically machinery products and construction firms.

Competitive Landscape

The Chinese metal fabrication equipment market is slightly fragmented, with many players owning smaller shares in the market. However, the competition is highly intensive and relatively integrated. Most of the key players present in China are aiming to achieve optimum growth and widen their presence through numerous strategies. These strategies include partnerships, agreements, acquisitions, and capacity expansion in new areas. The increasing need for advanced mechanized MCMs, to avoid hazardous health and safety issues of the operator, is encouraging buyers to purchase the metal fabrication equipment.
