Analysis of the Development Status of CNC Machine Tool Industry
Machine tools as the "mother of industry", is a symbol of the level of a country's manufacturing industry. CNC machine tools were invented by American inventor John Parsons in the last century. With the development of electronic information technology, machine tools in the world have entered the era of mechatronics with digital manufacturing technology as the core, in which CNC machine tools are one of the representative products. NC machine tool is an efficient, automatic machine tool equipped with program control system, which can solve the complex, precise, small batch, multi-variety parts processing problem better, representing the development direction of modern machine tool control technology.
Industrialized countries such as Europe, the United States and Japan have successively completed the industrialization process of NC machine tools, while China started in the 1980s and is now in the stage of development. Although China's foundry machine tool industry has made some achievements, it still faces many constraints. Compared with foreign products, the gap between China's CNC machine tools is mainly in the high-speed, high-efficiency and precision of machine tools.
NC Machine Tool Industry Grows Rapidly
From the perspective of China's CNC machine tool market, benefiting from the rapid development of China's automotive, aerospace, shipping, power equipment, construction machinery and other industries, the machine tool market, especially CNC machine tools, has a huge demand, CNC machine tool industry is growing rapidly. According to the statistical data of "Market Demand Forecast and Investment Strategic Planning Analysis Report of CNC Machine Tool Industry in China" issued by Prospective Industry Research Institute, the sales revenue of CNC machine tools in China from 2014 to 2016 exceeded 240 billion yuan, and by 2016, the sales volume of CNC machine tools in China was 273.23 billion yuan, an increase of 7.69% over the same period of last year. By 2017, the sales volume of CNC machine tools in China was about 306.03 billion yuan, exceeding 300 billion yuan for the first time.

Statistics of China's CNC Machine Tool Production in 2017
In 2010, the output of CNC machine tools in China was 236,000. In 2011, the output of CNC machine tools in China increased to 272,100. In 2013, the output of CNC machine tools in China dropped to 225,700 units. In 2014, the output of CNC machine tools in China exceeded 300,000 units. By 2016, the output of CNC machine tools in China reached 318,000 units, and by 2017, the output of CNC machine tools in China reached 301,000 units.

Downstream applications are still dominated by the automotive industry, and consumer electronics will become the mainstream market for future applications.
From the downstream consumption demand proportion of CNC machine tool industry, automobile is the main downstream demand area, accounting for about 42%; followed by aerospace, accounting for about 18%; die and construction machinery are the third and fourth consumption areas of CNC machine, accounting for about 15% and 10% respectively.
In the future, with the gradual popularization of smart phones and the acceleration of updating speed, the promotion and development of consumer electronics products such as tablets, wearable devices, communications and other 3C industry terminal equipment, 3C industry will usher in the spring of development, consumer electronics industry products will become a new growth point of the industry, and strongly promote the development of light cutting CNC machine tools applied in this field.

Analysis of Three Development Trends of CNC Machine Tool Industry in China
The economic development focus of the 13th Five-Year Plan is to realize the transformation of economic growth mode. Advanced manufacturing industry is the transformation direction of traditional manufacturing industry. The development of high-tech industries such as electronic information, bioengineering, new energy and new materials will open up new demands for precise, efficient and special CNC machine tools.
From the analysis of regional development, the upgrading of industries in eastern China, the revitalization of old industrial bases in Northeast China and the acceleration of the development of the central and western regions have provided the domestic market for the development of CNC machine tool industry; economic globalization, the transfer of international capital and industry to China, the exchange of international technology and talents, and the strong development of China's international trade have provided the outside for the development of CNC machine tool industry in China. The department environment makes the NC machine tool industry in a rare period of strategic development. In the future, China's CNC machine tool industry will mainly present the following three major development trends:
1. The comprehensive competitiveness of domestic CNC machine tools will be greatly improved, which will lead to fundamental changes in the market share of domestic CNC machine tools.
2. A number of wholly-owned enterprises or joint ventures set up by multinational machine tool groups in China, such as German Demagy, American Harding, Japanese Little Giant, etc., will form production capacity through localized production.
3. The industrialization of universal CNC machine tools will take shape. Popularized CNC machine tools and CNC machine tools in machining centers are the fastest growing and most important products in all kinds of products. They are also the most widely used equipment in manufacturing industry. As a mid-range CNC machine tool, universal CNC machine tool has become the mainstream of consumption. Its proportion in CNC machine tool has exceeded 30%. Its growth rate is much higher than that of other types of machine tools, including CNC machine tools.
