Gas spring market dynamics

International gas spring market dynamics

1. Developed countries shift low- and mid-range products to the third world


Due to the rapid development of production technology and the impact of expensive labor, developed countries have accelerated the transfer of low- and mid-range products to the Third World, producing only high-value-added products themselves.


2. According to the survey, in Europe and the United States, with the design of construction hardware products in developed countries focusing on easy installation and maintenance, self-assembling products and tools are welcomed by the market. According to the analysis of the Eastern Hemisphere Hardware Network, in the next two years, domestic construction hardware products will also move towards an intelligent and humane development path.


Domestic gas spring market trends


1. China’s daily hardware industry has entered the forefront of the world


According to surveys, since 1996, China has established 14 technology development centers including zippers, electric shavers, stainless steel utensils, iron pans, blades, bicycle locks, and 16 product centers including pressure cookers, electric shavers, and lighters. At present, most of these centers have developed into the vanguard of the industry, and some have become the vanguard of the world. For example, Supor Cookware Co. has produced high-end electric pressure cookers; Zhejiang Chaoren Group’s electric shaver output has surpassed Japan’s Sanyo Corporation, becoming the world’s third largest shaver Production enterprise; Wenzhou Dahu Lighter Factory has become China’s largest metal lighter manufacturer and has achieved good economic benefits.


2. China has gradually become the world’s largest hardware processing and exporting country


According to the survey, China has become one of the world’s major hardware producers and has a vast market and consumption potential. Foreign exchange earning from exports rose from US $ 2.76 billion in 1995 to US $ 3.847 billion in 1999, an increase of 71.74% and an average annual increase of 11.4%, and has been steadily increasing since then. In 2002, the total output value of China’s hardware industry reached 199.5 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 19.15%. The total value of customs statistics for exports was US $ 6.774 billion, a year-on-year increase of 24.51%. Among them, the output of gas water heaters was 2.438 million units, an increase of 19.18% over the previous year. It was an increase of 9.43% over the previous year; 415,000 tons of daily stainless steel products, an increase of 24.56% year-on-year. It is understood that at least 70% of China’s hardware industry is now a private enterprise, which is the main force for the development of China’s hardware industry. On the other hand, in the international hardware market: due to the rapid development of production technology and rising labor prices in developed countries in Europe and the United States, general products are transferred to developing countries for production, and only high-value-added products are produced, and China has strong market potential. Therefore, it is more favorable to develop into a major exporter of hardware processing.


Distribution of domestic gas spring market


According to reports, the gas spring market is mainly distributed in Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Shanghai, Guangdong and Shandong, with Zhejiang and Guangdong being the most prominent. Zhejiang Yongkang has always been called “the hometown of hardware”, and the people in Zhejiang have a strong sense of market operation. From the original hot pot products, stainless steel thermos cups to the popular scooters last year, they brought them a lot of money.

Guangdong: There are more than 6000 mold companies gathered around Shenzhen and the Pearl River Delta, with more than 100,000 employees. At present, China has become one of the world’s major hardware producers.


How to judge the quality and characteristics of gas springs

Gas spring is a kind of lift spring that can save effort. It can be divided into self-locking gas springs (such as lifting the bottom of the seat, the back of the boss chair, etc.), and non-self-locking gas springs (such as the lifting of car trunks and closet doors). Support), the structure of the gas spring is mainly composed of a sleeve, a piston and a piston rod. High pressure air or high pressure nitrogen is added to the sleeve. Due to the unequal area of ​​the two ends of the piston, a pressure difference is generated, which promotes the movement of the piston and the piston rod and supports the person. Or heavy objects.

Judging the quality of a gas spring is mainly considered from the following aspects: firstly, its tightness, if the tightness is not good, oil leakage, gas leakage and other phenomena will occur during use; secondly, the degree of error, such as 500N For gas springs, the force error produced by some manufacturers does not exceed 2N, and the product of some manufacturers may be far from the actual 500N required; once again, the service life is calculated by the number of times that it can be fully retracted; the error is in The force value in the stroke changes. Ideally, the gas spring should maintain the same force value throughout the stroke. However, due to design and processing factors, the force value of the gas spring in the stroke will inevitably change. The magnitude of the change is an important criterion for measuring the quality of a gas spring. The smaller the magnitude of the change, the better the quality of the gas spring, and the worse it is!
