Export of elevators and elevator parts in the world
First, the export of the world elevators and their parts and components
In 2006, the world's exports of elevators and their parts and components totaled 5.9 billion euros (59 billion yuan), an increase of 21.3% over 2005. In 2006, parts and exports accounted for 45.5% of the total export value, passenger elevators and cargo elevators accounted for 43.3%, and escalators and moving walkways accounted for 11.2%. In 2006, the EU-15 exports accounted for 61.7% of the world's total exports. In 2006, the world's top exports of elevators and their parts and components were: Italy (13.2%), China (12.6%), Spain (8.9%). ), France (8.3%), Japan (4.6%), UK (4.5%). In 2006, Italy exported the most parts (14.4%), Italy (15.1%) for passenger elevators and freight elevators, and China (43.6%) for escalators and moving walkways.
Second, the main factors driving the growth of the world elevator industry
The main factors driving the growth of the world elevator industry: (1) The scale of construction of non-residential buildings has expanded. (2) The emergence of various innovations to improve elevator performance. (3) Large-scale renovation and adaptation to meet the requirements of new elevator regulations.
Third, the global vertical elevator market size analysis
In 2007, the global vertical elevator market was about 365.64 billion yuan (RMB, the same below), including the newly installed vertical elevator manufacturing, installation market and maintenance, and transformation market. 40% of the share is manufacturing and installation business, and 60% of the share is maintenance and transformation business.
Fourth, the global escalator market size analysis
Japanese elevator patent strategy analysis
With the rapid development of science and technology and the accelerating process of economic globalization, the role of patents in domestic and international economic trade and market competition has been greatly improved. The use of patent protection to strengthen the position of enterprises in domestic and international economic trade and market competition has become a new trend in the world.
In China, the number of elevator patents applied by Japanese elevator companies, especially the number of patents invented by elevators, has a great advantage. In order to better participate in market competition, the company's usual practice is that the product has not yet been introduced into the market patent has been applied, and then to occupy the market, thus achieving a certain market access advantage. Japanese elevator companies generally practice similarly to other industries by creating wholly-owned or joint ventures in China to produce Japanese brand elevators, such as Mitsubishi, Hitachi, and Toshiba. These brands have a large market share in China and have a greater impact on the Chinese elevator industry. According to statistics, Japanese companies have two of the top three in the elevator market in China, which shows how important Japanese elevator companies are in the Chinese elevator market. Japan's elevator companies are demanding market and product technology competition, and relying on their leading technology to monopolize the market. The first thing to do is to apply for patent protection in China.
