In 2019, the industrial control market is "gloomy". The overall market prosperity has declined. Some industries (such as automobile, 3C and other industries) have declined. Many enterprises have reported unsatisfactory performance in the first half of the year. What is the overall situation of the industrial control market? Let's take a look!
1. Rising prices of products
At the beginning of 2019, many industrial control enterprises indicated that they were affected by the market environment, and the price of their products increased to a certain extent, including ABB, Mitsubishi Electric Machinery, Schneider and other international large factories. Eventually, the first half of the year was gone. However, just entering the middle of the year, Omron also indicated that due to the rising cost of products and tariff adjustment and other factors, since July 1, price adjustments have been made for its sensors, visual products, servo motors, frequency converters, servo controllers, safety light curtains and some motion control products. Among them, the largest increase was in motion control category, reaching 10%-30%.
In summary, it can be seen that the price increase announced by manufacturers is mainly affected by the rising cost of raw materials, tariff adjustment and other factors. The rising trend of raw material prices continues from 2018 to now. In addition, rare earth and other key raw materials are controlled in the first half of this year. The cost of raw materials is difficult to fall for a while, and manufacturers still need to do a good job of coping with it. Tariffs are mainly the impact of the international trade environment. With the re-deadlock of the Sino-US trade negotiations on August 2, the market trade situation is also complicated and confusing. It is very difficult for the two factors to stabilize in a short time, and the rising tide of industrial control products is expected to continue.
The overall servo market declined by an average of 12.8%.
In fact, since 2019, in addition to the rising product prices, the overall industrial control industry development trend is not optimistic.
Servo market and direct drive market both declined, and both fell to the bottom in the first half of the year. According to the survey and statistics, the growth rate of direct drive market slowed down, with a growth rate of 4.95%, while that of servo market once bottomed out, with a growth rate of - 12.8%. Some insiders said that with the issuance of 5G technology commercial license, a new round of upgrading opportunities for intelligent equipment has been brought, and the semiconductor and photovoltaic industries have shown strong momentum of development, so it is expected that the two markets will ease in the second half of 2019, and the growth rate of direct drive market will continue to be waiting.
