China's printing industry slows down
Food and beverage packaging is a large segment of the packaging machinery industry. According to industrial census data, China currently has nearly 6,000 food packaging machinery companies, but most of them are small and medium-sized enterprises. According to statistics from the China Food and Packaging Machinery Industry Association, in July, 1,247 companies realized a total industrial output value of 46.96 billion yuan, of which 27.91 billion yuan was the value of new products, an increase of 33.06% over the same period last year, and an industrial sales value was 45.4 billion yuan, an increase over the same period last year. 24.82%. However, the import and export trade deficit has been widening. In the first half of this year, imports were 1.332 billion US dollars and exports were 738 million US dollars.
Since the second half of 2008, China's food packaging machinery industry has been affected by the international financial crisis. Although it has maintained a trend of rising against the trend, the growth rate has slowed down, which is obviously not as good as in previous years. According to statistics from the China Machinery Industry Federation, in the first half of this year, China's machinery industry as a whole continued its upward trend since the fourth quarter of last year, with production and sales growth exceeding 35%, a record growth rate in recent years. But the food packaging machinery industry, "Although the output value of the industry in the first half of this year increased by more than 30% compared with the same period last year, this data may be a little watery." He Nanzhi said.
Statistics from the China Machinery Industry Federation also illustrate this point. In terms of operating efficiency, the profit of the machinery industry in the first half of this year increased by 86.13% year-on-year, while the food packaging machinery industry was low, only more than 25%. "This is a red flag. It shows that the rate of new product development is slowing down, or that the new products that have been developed are not marketable. Even a small number of companies that did well in 2009 do not pay enough attention to new product development, resulting in inadequate development potential. The development of the industry cannot always rely solely on the increase in sales of old products. Without new products as the technical support, how can technological progress be reflected? Hope to attract the attention of industry companies. "On many occasions, He Nanzhi expressed such concerns.
