- Aug 31, 2018 -

After 10 years of development, China's sewing machinery industry has risen rapidly through hard development, and has established itself as a major country in the world of sewing machinery, and is moving from a large country to a strong country.

From the late 1990s to 2007, China's sewing machinery industry has been in the stage of rapid growth. The production of domestic sewing machinery products has reached an unprecedented “peak” in 2007.

In 2002, the China Sewing Machinery Association showed an important message in a document issued at the China International Sewing Equipment Exhibition (CISMA) that year – China became the world's largest producer and consumer of sewing equipment. country. According to statistics from the Information Center of the China Sewing Association, there are nearly 500 sewing equipment and parts manufacturing enterprises of all sizes above the scale, with an annual output of 8 million sewing machines and an annual export volume of more than 400 million US dollars.

In the past 10 years, the scale of China's sewing machinery industry has continued to expand. According to statistics, at the end of the "Tenth Five-Year Plan", the annual output of sewing machinery in China accounted for 71% of the total output of sewing machines in the world. By the end of the "Eleventh Five-Year Plan", this proportion has increased to 80%. The proportion of annual output value is also At the end of the "Tenth Five-Year Plan", 45% has increased to the current 59%. The industry continues to gather in mainland China, promoting the development and transformation of downstream industries, and the international status and influence have been improved.

As an upstream industry for clothing, luggage and other industries, the sewing machinery industry is also closely related to improving people's living standards and achieving a well-off society. During the “Eleventh Five-Year Plan” period, the development of the industry has experienced a wave of development. In the past two years, it has maintained a rapid development momentum. However, since 2008, due to the impact of the international financial crisis and the adjustment of the industry’s own development cycle, the industry’s production and sales volume, etc. Economic indicators have shown a rapid decline for two consecutive years, falling into the trough of the past 10 years.

However, through active response and adjustment, the technological innovation capability and the ability to withstand risks of industrial enterprises have been enhanced to varying degrees. Especially with the gradual recovery of China's economy from the second half of 2009, China's sewing machinery industry has been the fourth since the year. Since the beginning of the quarter, it has gradually shaken off the downturn and showed a strong and sustained recovery trend, and the scale of production and sales has rebounded rapidly. In particular, in 2010, the industry showed a comprehensive and rapid growth rate, with an annual output value reaching a record high, and the output was close to the highest level in the industry. At the same time, the pace of structural adjustment and transformation and upgrading has obviously accelerated, and the results have begun to appear.
