According to customs statistics, 2010 China’s tooling exports from January to March year growth rate is 10.30%, from January to June year growth rate is 12.95%, from January to September year growth rate is 17.28%, from January to December year growth rate is 19.15%, showing the development of steady growth trend.
2010 China still keep its rapid economic growth after the international financial crisis, on the impact of global economic recovery, China’s mold industry in the post-crisis period to obtain a better recovery of growth, mold export growth rate higher than industry growth rate, and the first time to get the good results of the annual trade surplus. Guangdong, Zhejiang, Fujian provinces have achieved a surplus.
Then analysis from the import and export mould prices: from customs of the region and the total import and export of various mould types amount and weight shows, 2010 export stamping die average price is $ 9,604 per ton, 7.98% over the previous year, import stamping die an average price is $ 18,457 per ton, 15.5% over the previous year; Average unit price of imports and exports ration is 1.92:1. In the situation of general price decline, import and export price have a big increase, indicating that China’s technology content of import and export stamping die are increased. At the same time, each set of China’s exports of plastic rubber mold, their average prices dropped significantly, indicating that majority of small and medium sized mold from China’s exports of plastic rubber mold, technical content and added value are relatively low, compared to the import mould, the gap is increasing, this phenomenon that deserves our attention.
Another concern is the competitiveness of Korean die increased significantly. We can seen from table 2,in 2010 China imported from Korea $ 543,000,000 mold, more than 398 million in 2010 increased by 36.43%, 31.44% higher than the total increase.
