Chinese Major OEMs on bauma Platform for Global Promotion and Expansion

Chinese Construction Machinery

China's Ministry of Commerce appointed bauma 2019 as the platform to promote Chinese construction machinery globally. The press conference, organized by the China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Machinery and Electronic products (CCCME) and China Construction and Machinery Association (CCMA), was supported by the Chinese Embassy in Germany and by many international professional associations.

Wang MinWang Min, Chairman and Party Secretary of XCMG
Senior representatives from top Chinese organizations in the construction and machinery industries, namely, Zoomlion, Sany, CRCHI, Sunward, CREG, Shantui, Liugong and Sinomach, gave a presentation on their company's core competencies, latest innovations, business targets, plans and strategies to expand their business network within Europe and in other parts of the world.

Following 40 years of development under its Reform and Open policy, China has become one of the biggest equipment manufacturing countries in the world. Both global manufacturers and local companies have been instrumental in developing the Chinese market for construction equipment, which is known for its high production power, high quality, and record performance.

The Chinese construction machinery industry has developed very fast; the sales revenue of 2018 was estimated to reach 600 billion RMB, and by November 2018, the export volume reached 21.5 billion USD. Production volume of excavators, wheel loaders, rollers, tower cranes, and TBMs in China holds first place, globally.

Ten years ago, excavators of foreign make held 95% share of the Chinese market. Today, Made in China excavators hold more than 50% market share and are also being exported. This is because of their highly improved quality for efficient performance.

In 2018, the sales volume of wheel loaders in China reached 118,811 units - an increase of 21.7%, with exports of 23,260 units – an increase of 18.9%. Sales of rollers in 2018 reached 18,376 units - an increase of 5.48%, while export was of 3,202 units – an increase of 40.6%.

In the Chinese construction machinery industry, the tower crane industry is the first sub-sector to realize a surplus of exports over imports. The TBM industry is the fastest developing and the most profitable sub-sector with sales of 450 units in 2018.

China is the most globalized country in international construction machinery, with many international manufacturers and suppliers having set up their production bases in China through mergers, joint ventures, or as sole proprietorship. These companies are namely Caterpillar, Cummins, Dana, Terex, Manitowoc, Komatsu, Hitachi, Volvo, Liebherr, Wirtgen, Fayat and Doosan.

Some of these bases are also production centers for global markets, such as the Manitowoc tower crane factory in Zhang Jia gang. At the same time, top Chinese manufacturers like XCMG, Zoomlion, Sany, Liugong and SHIG have set up production bases in countries like Germany, America, Italy, Poland, Brazil, Belarus and India.

Wang Min, Chairman and Party Secretary of XCMG shared information on the contribution by Chinese construction machinery for building a better world. Companies like XCMG provide reliable, trustworthy and high-quality machines to global clients, based on its golden standard of "Leading Technology, Everlasting Products and Becoming Crafts", he said.

Liu Jiansen of XCMG said that since the past two decades, XCMG has grown, developed, and marched on at an increasingly assertive pace. On the strength of their bold explorations and unremitting practices, XCMG has succeeded in drawing out an internationalized road and has formed a four-pronged development model featuring export, overseas green-field investment, transnational M&A, and global R&D.

He said that the company's development plans were a response to the China's President Xi Jinping call for building a global community for a shared future. XCMG has actively cooperated with its international partners, aggressively improved its global layout, and steadily sharpened its competitiveness in overseas markets. With its efforts over the years, XCMG has made a huge progress in the following four major fields:
