In recent years, the continuous increase in sales of concentrated spinning units and the steady increase in the sales of combing machines have shown that end customers are increasingly demanding spinning quality.
It is unlikely that the growth of textile machinery will be realized by scale growth in the future. At present, the sales of cotton spinning machinery mainly depends on several large projects in Xinjiang. It is expected that after the completion of these projects in the second half of 2017, this situation will change, and the subsequent enterprise demand may consider how to update the equipment and upgrade.
It is expected that in the next few years, the spinning machinery field will further increase research and development efforts to develop a new generation of high-end cotton spinning complete sets of equipment to meet the individual needs of users in terms of refinement, high efficiency, reliability and spinnability. The application of modern information networks and digital technologies and expert systems will continue to advance, and the development of on-line detection, display, automatic control, automatic regulation and network monitoring of process parameters in the textile production process will be gradually realized.
On the other hand, the spinning production continuous process will have more room for development, with automatic feeding of cans, rovings and combed laps, automatic joints and other functions, as well as the ability to achieve multiple sets of automatic winders. Equipment for automatic control and automatic packaging of control and winding processes will be more popular among spinning companies.
In addition, the traditional cotton spinning equipment market has a large stock, and with the rise of labor costs and the shortage of skilled workers, there is huge room for technological transformation.
Weaving machinery: low cost advantage is concerned
In the market environment where the overall external demand of the textile industry is sluggish and domestic demand is slowing down, affected by the uncertainties of the raw material market and the capital market, the domestic shuttleless looms are in the overall sales, import and export, except for the water jet loom. Compared with the same period last year, there has been a certain decline.
With the development of new and high-tech materials and new raw materials, new textile processing technologies have emerged in an endless stream, which has improved the quality of textiles and broadened the application fields of textiles. The textile processing industry faces many difficulties, such as shortage of raw materials, increased requirements for energy conservation and emission reduction, rising labor costs, and accelerated pace of development of strategic emerging industries. These have placed higher demands on textile equipment and processing technology.
The main development and innovation trend of new woven weaving technology and products will be energy saving, equipment technology improvement, quality improvement and differentiated innovation. Weaving companies will pay more attention to weaving equipment that can improve the labor intensity and working environment of workers. In addition, we are able to meet new areas, new demands and equipment that promote industrial structure optimization. Weaving equipment with energy saving, emission reduction, low consumption and low carbon advantages, as well as weaving equipment with continuous, automated, efficient and modular functions will be more popular. At the same time, high-end components that can be matched with it will also have a large market space.
Knitting machinery: closer to fashion
In recent years, the knitting industry has been closely integrated with the fashion industry. For example, the wide application of lace has led to the rapid development of multi-comb warp knitting machines for several years. The large-scale popularization of women's leggings has driven the 8-inch circular weft machine. high demand. With the further pursuit of individualization and the continuous development of the fashion industry, the corresponding knitting machinery also has broad prospects for development.
The flat knitting machine market will continue its good momentum. On the one hand, the old computerized flat knitting machine weaving speed and weaving pattern capacity of domestic sweater weaving enterprises can no longer meet the production demand, a large number of equipment needs to be eliminated and updated; on the other hand, the production enterprises used for weaving knitted shoes have maintained strong equipment for flat knitting machines. demand.
At present, the full-form upper machine is the development trend of the knitting upper machine, and it is expected that there will be room for development in the shoe material process and materials in the future. It is worth noting that the domestic circular weft machine enterprises have begun to develop the upper circular weft machine, and some enterprises have prototypes. Thanks to the rise of artificial fur and sports shoes, double needle bed and high speed warp knitting machine will be expanded. With the development of industrial knitwear applications, the demand for multi-axial warp knitting machines will continue to grow.
Printing and dyeing machinery: green and energy efficient
The traditional printing machine is still the mainstream product in the market, and the rotary screen printing machine of Dahuahui is welcomed by the market. At present, the combination of digital + elliptical cutting machines is popular in the Guangdong market, and the combination of digital + traditional printing machines is yet to be tested by the market.
The printing and dyeing machinery industry still faces many problems. For example, the overall profit is low. It is difficult for many companies to invest funds in new product research and development, and the research and development capabilities are generally insufficient. The market has poor predictability and few new products. Many companies often flock to certain products. The market, the production of homogenized products, quickly led to the saturation of the market.
Digital inkjet printing has the characteristics of diversification, small batch, personalized customization, etc. Although the speed of inkjet printing has been improved, it is still quite different from traditional printing machines; key technologies such as nozzles are in the hands of a few foreign companies; Profit margins are shrinking rapidly, and some inkjet printer manufacturers are beginning to reduce production, which is limiting the development of digital printing.
The attractive market prospects are attracting more and more companies to invest in the development of digital inkjet printers and their ancillary products. At present, high-end digital printing machines in the domestic market are almost occupied by foreign equipment, domestic high-speed equipment is small, high investment is facing a situation of low output, and corporate pressure is huge.
With the deep adjustment of the market, it is normal to eliminate backwardness and promote the high-end process. Green textile is the theme of the development of China's textile industry. Environmental protection, energy saving, high efficiency, short process, digital monitoring and intelligentization are still the development direction of printing and dyeing machinery. Equipment that can improve resource utilization efficiency, reduce costs and effectively reduce pollution will be market-oriented. welcome.
With the continuous improvement of the technical level, the printing speed of high-speed printers is close to that of flat screen printing, and the production cost is gradually decreasing, which is ushered in a period of rapid growth. Some experts predict that by 2019, the output of digital printed fabrics will account for 7.2% of domestic printed fabric production.
Chemical fiber machinery: technological transformation is still a positive factor
As the investment in the chemical fiber industry returns to rationality, the number of new capacity projects in the domestic chemical fiber industry has decreased, and the demand for chemical fiber machinery has declined. The market sales of chemical fiber equipment continued to decline. The price competition of chemical fiber equipment manufacturers in terms of product sales was fierce, and the enthusiasm of downstream users for picking up goods was not high, but technological transformation is still a positive factor in the chemical fiber market.
With the gradual recovery of the downstream chemical fiber market, the operating rate of polyester and nylon production can reach more than 70%, and the investment of domestic chemical fiber enterprises will increase. It is expected that the chemical fiber market will improve in the future.
Nonwoven machinery: slick production line is optimistic
Corresponding to the slowdown in investment growth in the downstream industry, the demand for medium and low-end equipment has been greatly reduced, and the demand for mid-range and mid-to-high-end equipment has increased. The differentiation of business operations has become more and more significant. Orders have concentrated on enterprises with strong technical reserves and large production scale.
Some overseas companies have introduced new models for the demand characteristics of the Chinese market and shortened the delivery time. It is worth mentioning that the market demand for the needle-punching needle machine has been strong in the past two years. The sales of this unit unit have also brought a lot of income to the related machinery enterprises.
At present, some new trends in the market are worthy of attention, that is, the new equipment with high speed and high output is more incremental, and the equipment update speed is faster. Some companies are developing process routes such as direct spinning and spunbonding. In addition to the traditional large-scale products, the demand for processing equipment such as PLA, PPS, PE, and elastic materials has also appeared in China. Despite this, the homogenization phenomenon in the domestic non-woven equipment market is still relatively serious. In addition to supplying the domestic market, the production capacity of more than 100 production lines per year has entered the international market. In the face of future market demand, non-woven fabric machinery will develop in the direction of high speed, high yield and differentiation.
