As a device pumping gases at a high speed to improve and maintain a vacuum state within a wide pressure range, vacuum pump is widely applied in the industries such as metallurgy, chemical, food and electroplating.
In 2011, the output of vacuum pump in China registered 7.3996 million sets, with a year-on-year rise of 12.6%. In 2012, the figure approximated 8.5 million sets, rising by 15% from a year earlier. Affected by downstream demand and environmental protection pressure, the product segments of vacuum pump behave differently. For example, in spite of a wide application scope, the market share of water ring vacuum pump shrinks gradually due to the restriction of environmental protection pressure; the dry vacuum pump rose sharply and performed well in 2012, and the high-end market is mainly dominated by enterprises from Europe, America and Japan.
From the perspective of vacuum pump import/export unit price in China, the vacuum pump import unit price amounted to USD252.08/set in 2012, while the export unit price reached USD42.35/set in same term, indicating relatively high import dependency on high-end products. Along with the improvement of technical level of vacuum pump in China, the import unit price is now witnessing decline gradually.
As of the end of 2012, major foreign-funded enterprises of vacuum pump have made arrangements in Chinese market, including Gardner Denver, Leybold ULVAC, Osaka Vacuum, Tuthill, Edward, etc.. In particular, Gardner Denver has established 9 subsidiaries in China, involving Gardner Denver Nash Machinery (with major sales brand as Nash), Gardner Denver Thomas Pneumatic Systems (Wuxi) (Thomas), ILMVAC Trading (Shanghai) (ILMVAC), Gardner Denver Trading (Shanghai) (Elmo Rietschle), Gardner Denver Machinery (Shanghai) (Air Drive, Drum, Emco Wheaton, Gardner Denver, TODO and Wittig) and so on.
