India may become a hotspot for exporting sewing machinery this year
The rapid development of India's textile and garment industry has provided new business opportunities for sewing machinery companies. Due to the increase in orders received from Europe and the United States in recent years, the demand for textile and garment machinery from Indian textile and garment factories has been strongly driven. Industry insiders believe that Quanzhou's textile and garment machinery industry focused on expanding the Southeast Asian market in 2007, especially in places such as Vietnam. In 2008, it can focus on areas such as Pakistan and India. In 2006, India was the largest export destination of China's sewing machinery, with an export volume of more than 220,000 complete machines. Among them, more than 10,000 embroidery machines were exported, a year-on-year increase of 63%. This situation is closely related to the characteristics of Indian garment processing. The person concerned predicts that for a long period of time, the demand for embroidery machines in the Indian market will be relatively large. According to the latest information provided by the Indian Garment Association, in 2006 and 2010, the Indian garment industry will maintain an annual growth rate of 23% in the introduction of sewing machinery to ensure that the garment industry achieves a more rapid and complete upgrade. The Indian Garment Association will continue to negotiate with the government, hoping to reduce the import tax rate of sewing machinery by another 5 percentage points. India adjusted its policies and increased its efforts to support the development of the apparel industry, which brought huge business opportunities for the Chinese sewing machinery industry to collectively explore the Indian market. It is understood that India currently does not have a large-scale sewing machinery manufacturing industry, and there are only a few companies that do related parts. Therefore, the equipment of Indian clothing companies mainly depends on imports. Since 10 years ago, the Indian textile and garment industry has imported machinery from Germany, France, and Switzerland to improve existing production conditions and increase productivity. The imported textile and garment machinery are mainly looms and garment making machines, which are mainly used for large-scale production. The equipment of the textile and garment factory was updated. In recent years, many Indian textile and garment factories have chosen to import a large number of textile and garment machinery from China. Currently, one third of India's garment machinery comes from China. In this regard, some insiders in Quanzhou analyzed that the Vietnamese market in 2007 was a bright spot for Quanzhou sewing equipment manufacturers, while India may become a sales bright spot in 2008. In response to the trend of China's garment industry shifting to Vietnam and India, on November 15 last year, sewing equipment manufacturers and traders in Fujian Province gathered together to form the Fujian Sewing Equipment Industry Association. This move means that Quanzhou, as the second largest sewing equipment distribution center in the country, will use the newly established industry association platform to centrally integrate textile machinery resources in surrounding markets, radiate to Jiangxi, Hubei, Hunan and Sichuan and other inland regions, and seize clothing Industrial transfer drives the opportunity of sewing equipment demand, penetrates into Southeast Asia, and promotes the entire industry into a new stage of development. The reporter learned that since last year, the sewing equipment industry in Fujian, represented by Quanzhou enterprises, has seen a wave of gold panning in Southeast Asia. Many sales companies have renamed the original foreign trade department to the international trade department, and vigorously recruited troops to meet the needs of the Southeast Asian market Strong demand. Under the premise of the substantial transfer of the international sewing machinery industry, my country's small and medium private enterprises engaged in sewing machinery manufacturing have flourished. Excellent private enterprises such as Feiyue, Zhongjie, Gem, Jack, and Tongyu have become the leaders in the domestic sewing machinery industry. . According to industry insiders, Indian merchants choose to import Chinese sewing machinery mainly based on two considerations. The first is that China's sewing machinery is of high quality and low price. The Indian textile and garment industry believes that compared with India’s own country, China’s sewing machinery is in a leading position in terms of production capacity, technical level and scale; compared with Europe, the quality of China’s sewing machinery is comparable, but the price is only European sewing About 1/2 of machinery is very attractive to Indian apparel companies. Secondly, the delivery time of Chinese sewing machinery is relatively short, about half the cycle shorter than that of Indian distributors. Expert analysis indicated that this situation is a big plus for my country's sewing machine export enterprises. Among the sewing machinery products produced in my country, the number of high-tech products such as sewing machines with electric control devices has risen sharply, mechatronics has continued to innovate, and some low value-added and low-efficiency products are gradually withdrawn from the market. The product structure is in Under the urging of the market, adjustments have taken place gradually and further optimized. The expert said.
