The national ranking of the importing country (2015).


Woodworking machinery trade in 2012 and 2014 has been a small but positive growth, global woodworking machinery trade volume in 2015 reached $44.2 billion, nearly $6.8 billion less than in 2014, down 13.4%.

Among them, China is the largest exporter of woodworking machinery and equipment, reaching nearly 9.74 billion us dollars in 2015.

Market analysis of American woodworking machinery equipment.


The United States is the largest importer of woodworking machinery, while the United States is also the world's largest producer of wood-based panels, the largest consumer of furniture, and the largest producer and consumer of manufactured goods.

In 2015, the import volume of American woodworking machinery equipment reached us $8.65 billion, and it has been growing, with an average annual compound growth rate of 8.07% in 2012-2015.

The United States is also the largest importer of woodworking machinery products, reaching $3.54 billion in 2015, with an average annual compound growth rate of 7.7 percent between 2012 and 2015.

At the same time, the United States is also the largest importer of hand-held and electric hand-held tools in woodworking machinery equipment. From $4 billion in 2012 to $5.1 billion in 2015, the market prospect is very broad.

Industry employed 953 thousand people, wood processing accounted for 50%.

Market analysis of best-selling woodworking machines in the United States.


Big country, China has become a veritable woodworking machinery production of woodworking machinery production equipment sets, number of enterprises and workers are the most of the world, more than the sum of Germany, Italy.

Through U.S. customs import and export data analysis, China woodworking machinery equipment in the woodworking machinery tool and cutting blade, cutting machine, electric saw, chipper, electric hand sanding machine, woodworking machinery spare parts and other products are very popular in the United States.

In terms of data on sawing machinery in the woodworking machinery industry, the total U.S. import volume in 2016 was about $575 million, an increase of 18% over 2015.

Which imports from China ranked the first place, to $270 million, accounting for 47% of the total, compared to imports from China in 2015, an increase of 18.2% in 2016, rapid growth, imports in second place is strong in Chinese traditional woodworking machinery industry in Taiwan, the United States in 2016 from Taiwan imports in 170 million, 29.6% of the total.

Woodworking machinery spare parts in the woodworking machinery industry this kind of product data, the United States imports of woodworking machinery spare parts rise year by year, more than $200 million in 2016, share most of Canada, $86.25 million, accounted for above 40%.

Next came Germany and China.

In 2016, it imported $27.88 million from China.

Through the above data, clear, in terms of woodworking machinery industry, the market demand for woodworking machinery, and raw materials is insufficient, government regulations, constraints, intense market competition, lack of skilled technical workers and other factors have restricted the United States the woodworking machinery industry, for the Chinese woodworking machinery manufacturing enterprises, the American market is a piece of blue ocean area.

The industrial cluster of woodworking machinery in China is mainly in the mainland: the pearl river delta industrial agglomeration area centered in shunde, guangdong;

The Yangtze river delta industrial agglomeration area centered on Shanghai;

Shandong peninsula industrial agglomeration area centered on weihai and Qingdao.

Facing the huge American woodworking machinery market, Rio out (Qingdao) company, jinan to Qingdao as the center, radiation throughout the shandong province and the surrounding market, with emphasis on the woodworking machinery manufacturers, one of the development goals, efforts to build an extension out within the target area market platform model enterprise.

The company is also helping to expand the U.S. market for the local wood processing machinery line.

Up to now, 12 woodworking machinery and equipment manufacturers have signed up to the expansion platform, mainly in guangdong and Qingdao area.

In order to further develop the woodworking machinery product line, on January 31, the company signed the first woodworking machinery manufacturer in fujian province, jinjiang shengong machinery manufacturing co., LTD.

Jinjiang shengong machinery manufacturing co., LTD. Was established in the 1980s, is a company dedicated to research and development of woodworking machinery and equipment.

The main products of the machine are sawing, planing, milling, carving, grinding and other wood processing equipment.

Products are exported to Nigeria, Angola, Russia, Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, Malaysia, Cambodia and other countries.

However, the blue sea market has not been developed for the shenzhou machine.

"The southeast Asian market has become saturated in recent years and we have always wanted to expand into the us market," said weng zhongde, a mechanical engineering manager.

I have heard from colleagues before that the model is very good, which can provide us with sales channels as well as after-sales service.

For the us market, we will also make targeted technical improvements on our products, and we believe that we will be able to enter the us market smoothly through the extension platform.
