The seven development trends of automobile promote the great opportunity of automobile mould industry in China
Affected by the rapid development of automobile industry, the acceleration of mold localization pace of domestic automobile manufacturers and auto parts suppliers, as well as the expansion of domestic mold procurement scale by international well-known automobile manufacturers and auto parts suppliers, China's automobile mold market demand is strong, and the automobile mold industry is facing good development opportunities and huge development potential. The demand of automobile mould industry is increasing. The development of automobile mold industry is closely related to the rapid growth of automobile industry. The rapid development of China's automobile industry and the continuous growth of market demand provide a rare development opportunity for automobile mold.

Seven development trends of automobile promote the great development of automobile die and mould industry in China
1. Increase the demand of auto parts market and promote the development of Die & mould industry
Automobile mould is a kind of customized product. Enterprises in the industry mainly adopt the business mode of "production by sales". Its main customers are vehicle manufacturers and auto parts suppliers. The supply and demand status of the downstream automobile market will not directly affect the supply and demand of automobile dies. However, with the continuous growth of automobile production and sales, the rapid introduction of new models and the continuous change of original models, automobile models have become more and more popular The overall demand is growing. In addition, with the continuous development of China's automobile industry, the demand for auto parts is gradually increasing. The international well-known automobile interior and exterior parts suppliers have increased their investment in China's market, and the number of wholly-owned or joint-venture parts factories invested in China has increased rapidly, which has also driven the growth of domestic automobile mold product demand and brought new market demand for China's automobile mold industry.
2. The corresponding demand for automobile interior and exterior decoration molds and supporting products has been expanded
Automobile interior and exterior decoration molds and supporting products belong to non-standard equipment. When the vehicle manufacturers develop new models, they need to redesign the interior and exterior trim parts, and need the upstream supporting mold enterprises to develop corresponding mold products. Generally, a vehicle model needs 1-3 sets of interior and exterior decoration molds and inspection tools according to its specific configuration quantity to produce various kinds of interior and exterior decoration parts; the design of each vehicle model has different internal and external decoration richness and specific molding process requirements, resulting in the difference in the number of molds required. In recent years, with the development of the global economy, people have higher and higher requirements on the performance, appearance and personalization of automobiles. There are more and more types of automobile models, and the development and modification cycle of new models is also shorter and shorter, which drives the continuous growth of market demand for automobile interior and exterior decoration molds and supporting products.
3. The trend of high-end automobile consumption brings broad development space for automobile interior and exterior decoration mold enterprises
With the gradual improvement of people's income level, China's automobile consumption is entering the stage of product upgrading. China's automobile consumption as a whole presents a trend of gradual high-end development, and major automobile manufacturers have accelerated the localization progress of luxury models.
Audi's production capacity in China will increase from 400000 units in 2012 to 700000 units in 2015, and the capacity will increase to 965000 units after the expansion of Audi South China base is completed; BMW's production capacity in China will be expanded from 200000 units in 2012 to 450000 units in 2017, and the capacity in China will gradually increase to 600000 units in the future; the production capacity of Mercedes Benz in China will be expanded from 120000 units in 2012 to 300000 units in 2017, which is planned to be in 2020 The production was expanded to 500000 units. In addition, Japanese, American and other European car brands have joined the localization team of high-end models.
4. The increasing variety of automobile models provides a good development prospect for interior and exterior decoration mold enterprises
As the main way of international automobile brands entering China is joint venture and cooperation, there are many joint venture automobile factories in China. In order to adapt to the increasingly diversified consumption concept of Chinese consumers, all joint venture vehicle manufacturers are actively seeking the development direction of differentiation, that is, while retaining the advantages or characteristics of the international brand power system, design style, safety, etc., develop a variety of automobile models that meet the aesthetic characteristics and consumption habits of Chinese consumers.
Therefore, there are more models in China's passenger car market, and the speed of new model introduction and model change is accelerated, and the update and upgrading of automobile interior and exterior decoration is also increasingly frequent. This trend provides a good development prospect for domestic automobile interior and exterior decoration mold enterprises.
5. The rise of new energy vehicles is a new driving force for the rapid development of automobile interior and exterior decoration mold industry
The design method and manufacturing process of the interior and exterior decoration of new energy vehicles are basically similar to those of traditional vehicles, so the automobile interior and exterior decoration mold enterprises can quickly enter the new energy vehicle industry system. New energy steam in China
