Exports: the export of construction crane industry has gradually become an important economic growth point of the whole industry. Before 2005, the total export volume of the industry was less than 500 units, and exceeded 1000 units in 2006. Peaked in 2008, close to five thousand units. In 2009, less than two thousand units were directly affected by the global economy. By the end of 2012, the export volume of more than four thousand units, close to the highest peak in 2008, reflecting China's engineering crane enterprises overseas layout has been in full swing, the competitiveness of products in the international market continues to increase.
Economic indicators: construction crane industry revenue and operating costs have been rising, 2001 operating income was only 2 billion yuan, as of 2011 reached a peak of 42 billion 300 million yuan, and the product gross margin reached its highest value 24.06%, total profit of nearly 7 billion yuan, industrial added value of 400 million yuan from 2001 to 2011 exceeded 6 billion 800 million yuan, is the the development of the industry as a boom year. In the second half of 2008, under the impact of the global financial turmoil, the construction crane industry achieved a total annual sales revenue of 27 billion 300 million yuan, profit of 26 billion 300 million yuan, still maintained a high speed development trend.
In the "12th Five-Year" development plan of construction machinery industry, in 2015 sales forecast target, wheeled crane in 2015 can reach 60000 units, of which 16000 exports; crawler crane 2015 target 2800 units, of which 1500 exports. But with the current national economy, and from 2012 sales of the market situation, the whole industry is not optimistic, as of 2013, the whole industry is still declining. The current grim situation of industry market based on the transformation of the construction crane industry should be extensive to intensive growth pattern, from resource consumption to resource conservation, from external demand to domestic demand led transformation. Strengthen the sense of crisis, rational thinking of the future development strategy direction of enterprises, hard skills, through the transformation and upgrading of enterprises to enhance their own competitive strength.
