China's hardware toolset tool development market has great potential.

At present, China's daily hardware industry has entered the world's forefront. At present, at least 70% of the hardware industry in China is private enterprises, which is the main force for the development of China's hardware industry. China has gradually become the world's hardware processing power and export power, and has become one of the world's major hardware manufacturers, with broad market and consumption potential. It is easy to find out that there is a trend in the development of Chinese hardware toolset tools. Let's start with the market for manual tools: German hand-tools demand increased. In Germany, comfortable and labor-saving tools are the most popular. The smooth handle and attractive appearance of the grip are important factors to attract their desire to buy. In terms of tools, power tools are becoming more common. In addition, rechargeable tools are becoming more and more popular. The new charging tools now available on the market have multiple rechargeable batteries that can be used in a variety of environments.

U.S. hand tools market demand is stabilizing. At the end of last year, when the housing market was growing in the U.S., there were still a large number of existing homes that were unoccupied, creating a huge market opportunity for renovations. The average model and age of motor vehicle are increasing, which has promoted the sales of hand tools in after-sales market. In addition, the demand for forging tools for electronic product distribution is strong, especially adjustable spanner.

Taiwan hand tool industry adjusts product structure. With stable product quality, punctual delivery and complete product variety, Taiwan's hand tool industry has certain advantages in the world. Besides, Taiwan hand tool sales are mainly based on the overseas market. Currently, there are about 5000 local manufacturers, mainly in the central part of Taiwan, mainly small and medium-sized enterprises. According to the investigation data shows, with individual hand tool product category, the sleeve for the export of commodities, followed by hand tools combination, the third for garden tools, wrench class fourth, fifth pliers. In terms of exporting countries, the United States ranked first, followed by Britain, Germany and Japan.

Look at the cutlery market: demand for cutting tools in the world will continue to grow. It is reported that the worldwide demand for cutting tools is increasing. Among them, the growth of European and north American countries is stable, especially in eastern Europe. Asian markets have picked up a bit, the market has great potential, and Latin American markets have grown significantly, especially Mexico. (in the past year, cutting tool market demand growth is slow, mainly because of increased tool life, then there is the user request, for the whole manufacturing process instead of many machine tools and cutting tools. As well as the use of multi-function tools, it has replaced many simple tools with simple functions. Experts predicted that: the future users will be more emphasis on factories on the research and development of cutting tool, is not only in the field of materials and surface coating technology, but also in terms of cutting tool product and its production process. Focusing on production practices will help tool manufacturers increase market competitiveness in the areas they are familiar with, the expert said.

Technical updates. Tool product technology, hard alloy tool gradually replace high speed steel tool, especially round tool. The application of coating tools is becoming more and more common. In Europe, the market share of new cutting tools is increasing. Vendor dynamics. From the point of view of tool manufacturer cooperation, there will be many large companies in the high and new market.

The general situation and development trend of the mold market: during the fifteenth period, the overall trend of the mold market is stable and upward. At present, the domestic market has great demand for medium and high grade moulds, but it is required that domestic molds meet the needs of users in terms of quality, delivery time and so on. Moreover, the industry of home appliance, automobile, plastic products has the biggest demand for mold. International market: in recent years, the artificial cost of industrial developed countries has increased, and it is transferring to developing countries, especially southeast Asian countries. Its domestic production is high, fine mold is the main, the artificial labor input large amount of mold depends on the import solution. Therefore, the international market potential of the middle and low gear is huge. As long as the quality of domestic mold can be improved, the delivery time can guarantee, the prospect of mold export is very optimistic. In addition, the international market demand for frame and mold standard parts is also very large. At present, our country only has a small number of exports. In the new world economic integration wave, the acceleration of global manufacturing to the mainland China has become a trend, and China will gradually develop into a world-class manufacturing base. Experts predict that guangdong, especially the pearl river delta region, will become the world's mold production center within ten years. At the same time, because in recent years our country imported mould with nearly 1 billion dollars a year, including precision, large, complex, long-life mold majority, so from the perspective of import less, this kind of high-grade mold, hardware tools in market share proportion will gradually increase.

The battle for cobalt in China and Japan, Japan's failure

The foreign ministry has issued a notice reminding Chinese citizens to travel cautiously to the democratic republic of Congo (DRC). On the face of it, the riots in African countries were accidental. But here, China and Japan have just "finished a fight", the ministry of foreign affairs at this time has a significant voice!

In June last year, China and Congo reached a strategic cooperation on resources, and held the equity delivery ceremony of luoyang molybdenum - tenko mining area. And this cooperation, the original cooperation object is not other people, it is Japan!

In Congo, Japan lost more than just one mining area, and Japan's future. Electricity is the backbone of the national industry, both at present and in the future. Nuclear fusion power stations and three-cell batteries, which are highly regarded by all countries, cannot be separated from a mineral resource, cobalt. It can be said that whoever controls the cobalt power has mastered the commanding heights of the future industrial revolution.

In 2015, there were 7.1 million tons of cobalt in the world, of which the Congo (gold) has a cobalt reserve of 3.4 million tons, accounting for 48% of the world's cobalt reserves, ranking first in the world.

If China has some cobalt reserves, then Japan has nothing. Obviously, since China has grabbed this strategic resource from Japan, it will not sell it to Japan. Although Russia and Canada is also a supplier of cobalt, but the two countries have already enacted law strictly limit mining scale, cannot fill the vast market gap in Congo, and sell to Russia and Canada of cobalt is very expensive. Now, China is also the world's leading producer of cobalt, which is bound to rise once China reduces its cobalt.

In a country where labor costs are higher than China's, Japan would have to import cobalt ore at a high price, and in a few years, all of Japan's cobalt related businesses would collapse under the impact of Chinese companies. These include all battery companies, aviation power companies and some special industries that worry about national security.

There is no doubt that the mineral is a non-renewable resource (short term). Over time, Japan's manufacturing sector will be hamstrung by China.
