With the gradual slow recovery of the world economy, the United States as the engine of the world economy has gradually reduced and withdrawn from quantitative easing policies, leaving the world economy with many uncertainties. Considering comprehensively, China’s machine tool product exports are expected to grow by 13% to 15% in 2014. The trade deficit in machine tools is reduced. The growth rate of China's machine tool products exports in 2013 is higher than that of the country’s overall exports; the growth rate of machine tool imports is negative, and the speed is significantly reduced. The trade deficit is obvious. reduce.
In 2013, under the background of the general economic downturn, China's foreign trade in machine tool products has maintained relatively stable growth. Statistics from the General Administration of Customs show that the export value of China's machine tool products in 2013 was 4.379 billion U.S. dollars, an increase of 12.56% over the previous year, which was higher than the year-on-year increase of 7.6% in China's total export volume. In 2013, the total import value of China's machine tool products was US$1.102 billion, an increase of -23.62% over the previous year.
The import and export trade deficit of China's machine tool products in 2013 was a deficit of 6.623 billion U.S. dollars, a decrease of 4.186 billion U.S. dollars from the import and export trade deficit of 2012.08 billion U.S. dollars, a decrease of 38.73%.

In the second half of the year, the growth rate of exports was relatively stable, and there was an upward trend from month to month. This, to some extent, seems to reflect some signs of recovery in the world economy.
Metalworking machine tools export growth is faster Metal processing machine tools are the main part of China's machine tool exports, and export growth is also relatively fast. In 2013, the export value of metal processing machine tools was 2.861 billion U.S. dollars, accounting for 65.34% of all machine tool exports, which was slightly lower than 70% in 2012. The export value of metal processing machine tools increased by 5.4% year-on-year, and the growth rate was lower than the growth of all machine tool exports by 12.56. % increase. The export value of processing center increased by 15.9% year-on-year.
It is noteworthy that the proportion of China's machine tool exports to the Asian market is almost half of the trend, an increase of 21.75% over the same period in the previous year, and the growth rate is close to twice the average.

Among them, Vietnam exported 350 million U.S. dollars, accounting for 8%, an increase of 217.69% year-on-year. The United States, Vietnam, Germany, Russia, and India are the major markets for China's machine tool exports, of which the United States is still the largest market for Chinese machine tool exports. From the trade perspective, general trade exports are still the mainstay of machine tool exports, with the export value of US$3.541 billion, accounting for 80.87% of the total export value, which is an increase of 8.79% year-on-year; the number of exports is 14,194,454 units, accounting for 85.23%, an increase of 4.29% year-on-year. The number of imported machine tools decreased in price and the price of imported machine tools increased by approximately US$11 billion in 2013, a year-on-year decrease of 23.62%; the number of imports reached 102,532 units, a year-on-year decrease of 33.34%; the average price of imported machine tools was US$107,304.22, a year-on-year increase of 14.57%. The situation is in stark contrast to the trend of price increase in 2012.
