Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) May 02, 2013
According to the data of China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, China’s annual production capacity of automotive steering system has now reached around 20 million sets. In 2012 the demand for automotive steering system in China was approximately 19.31 million sets, a year-on-year increase of 4.3%. It is expected that, in 2013-2015, the demand will grow at an average rate of 5% or so, and hit 22.35 million sets in 2015.
Seen from the demand structure, mechanical hydraulic steering system (HPS) is the most mainstream steering system in the current market, with demand accounting for about 50% of the total. However, as the electric power steering system (EPS) technology continues to become mature, its demand is in a stage of rapid growth. In the future, EPS will constantly replace HPS to become the mainstream of the automotive steering system market.
Among joint ventures, JTEKT CORPORATION occupies the largest share in China steering system industry - http://www.reportsnreports.com/reports/239199-china-automotive-steering-system-industry-report-2012-2015.html, provided with a total of seven steering system production bases there, four of which are dedicated to the production of electric power steering system. JTEKT Steering System (Xiamen) Co., Ltd. as one of major steering system production bases is engaged in the production of electric power steering gear, with annual capacity up to 1.2 million units, well above its industry counterparts. It mainly supports for Japanese vehicle assembly plants such as Tianjin FAW Toyota Motor Co., Ltd., Zhengzhou Nissan Automobile Co., Ltd., Dongfeng Nissan and GAC Toyota.
Among local enterprises, China Automotive Systems, Inc. enjoys the largest production capacity. Through production and operation by its eight subsidiaries, the company reaches total capacity of 3.25 million units, mainly supporting for FAW Group Corporation, Dongfeng Motor Corporation, Shenyang Brilliance Jinbei Automobile Co., Ltd., Chery Automobile Co., Ltd., Geely Automobile Holdings Limited, etc.. To retain its competitive edge in the industry, China Automotive Systems applies electronic chip to the power steering system and has conducted technical cooperation with BISHOP, KDAC, Korea’s Namyang and other companies for the development of EPS and EHPS. Development target of the company is to achieve annual capacity of 6.35 million units at the end of 2015.

Global and China Tire Mold Industry Report, 2012-2015 (http://www.reportsnreports.com/reports/239202-global-and-china-tire-mold-industry-report-2012-2015.html) - Since 2011, the global tire market, especially the Chinese tire market, has seen slow growth, which directly impacts the market demand for tire molds.
In 2012, China tire mold industry harvested the revenue of RMB3.01 billion or so, including RMB1.87 billion from automotive tire molds, only up 0.16% year on year.
Seen from new construction project, there were merely two major tire mold projects in 2012: the tire mold project co-invested with a total capital of RMB1.1 billion by Henan Yasheng and Jiaozuo Deke Mould; and the 300-set radial tire mold virtual manufacturing technology project of Shandong Dawang Jintai.
In the projects invested and built before 2012, Himile's “precise radial tire mold construction project” is delayed until the end of September 2013 instead of the planned December 2012, with the investment of RMB349 million. Greatoo's “large-sized engineering vehicle tire and special tire mold expansion project” is under construction; the project aims at the mold market of military SUV tires, aerospace tires, racing tires, snow tires, high-grade sedan tires, etc, with huge market potentials. With total investment of RMB197 million; the project is expected to be put into production in July 2013.
Although the current tire mold industry is sluggish, we expect that China's domestic demand for tire molds will grow at the average annual growth rate of around 7% with the moderate recovery of Chinese automobile market in the next 2-3 years.
The report highlights the followings for Global and China Tire Mold Industry:
Development, competition and future development trends;
Major policies, operation, supply and demand, market competition and outlook;
Main products, operation and development planning of major producers worldwide;
Major products, capacity, operation, major customers, and project planning and performance prediction of major Chinese manufacturers.
