Compared with metal, stone and wood, plastic has the advantages of low cost and strong plasticity. It is widely used in the national economy, and the plastics industry occupies an extremely important position in the world today. Over the years, the production of plastic products has developed rapidly throughout the world. The output of plastic products in China is always in the front rank in the world rankings. Among them, the output of various plastic products has been ranked first in the world, and China has become the largest producer of plastic products in the world. From 2001 to 2010, the average annual increase in the output of plastic products in China remained above 15%. In 2010, the total output of China's plastic products reached 58.3 million tons.
Although the total consumption of plastic products in China has already ranked second in the world,Plastic injection molding machine the per capita plastic consumption is far behind that of developed countries. The data show that China's average per capita plastic consumption in 2005 was only 29.5 kg. In the same year, per capita plastic consumption in the United States, Belgium, and Germany reached 171 kg, 169 kg, and 155 kg, which were 5.79 times and 5.73 times the per capita plastic consumption of China respectively. 5.25 times.
As another measure of the development level of a country's plastics industry, the ratio of steel to plastics is only 30:70 in China, which is less than the average 50:50 in the world, and far less than the developed countries such as the United States 70:30 and Germany 63:37. These gaps from another aspect show that China's plastics and plastics machinery industry has a large space for development.
China's plastics machinery market is increasingly concerned by foreign companies. Many large-scale international companies continue to increase the depth and breadth of cooperation with China's plastics machinery companies, but more often they use mergers or purchase shares to capture the Chinese plastics machinery market. . Such foreign companies as Demag, Conair and Hong Kong Zhenxiong have entered the Chinese market through joint ventures with Chinese companies or separate subsidiaries or representative offices.
