China gear industry basically consists of three parts, namely industrial gears, gear and gear equipped vehicle. Among them, the vehicle gear market share reached 60%; industrial gear composed of industrial general, special, special gear, its market share was 18%, 12%, 8%; gear and equipment accounted for 2% of market share.
During fifteen, the total output value of gear industry growth from 25000000000 yuan to 50000000000 yuan, the average growth rate of nearly 20%, five years doubled, ranking fourth in the world, the sales scale billion yuan more than 50 enterprises, industry concentration significantly improve. At present in the gear industry five major categories of products, hundreds of series, thousands of products, the emergence of a large number of international advanced level products. 2006 annual output value of gear industry is 59000000000 yuan, among them, the proportion of vehicles gear up to 2/3. Automobile industry is an important support for the drive gear mold development.
Gear consumption is very huge, every car has more than 20 different sizes of gear. Automobile gear mostly made of gear steel 20CRMNTI, only a small number of senior car transmission gear is made of stainless steel, so gear steel is synchronous growth and vehicles, ships, engineering machinery etc.. In addition, the export of electromechanical products demand driven gear. In recent years, the export of electromechanical products annually by more than 30%, consumption of gear is about more than 25% growth. Special, special gear drive market is big, such as non circular gears, powder metallurgy gears, small modulus gear, the gear steel demand also is not small
