Huge car market is bound to stimulate the development of related parts of the machine tool industry, according to KPMG released "2012 Global auto industry executives report" shows that in 2011 China's auto spare capacity of up to 6 million, is expected by 2016, spare capacity will rise to 9,000,000.

Machine is automobile production process means the manufacturing level and quality of the car, depends largely on the level of precision molds and machine tools. Automobile and parts industry is a metal cutting machine tools and mold manufacturing industry's largest, most users. In the auto parts processing, Chinese production CNC lathes, vertical machining centers basically meet the needs of automotive parts mold.
According to statistics, China's auto industry is the main consumer of machine tools, machine tools, automobile manufacturers accounted for the total investment in fixed assets, about 2/3, where the demand for auto parts machining machine tool OEMs to more than ten times or so, about cars 70% of the machine tool industry demands. Three years later, by the Chinese auto industry a lot of idle capacity and the impact of large-scale mergers and acquisitions, the Chinese auto industry demand for machine processing will gradually decline, the demand for machine tools will also be more environmentally friendly and efficient.
