The “ice zone” of China’s auto parts industry should receive more attention!

Recently, automotive news released the list of the top 100 global auto parts suppliers in 2018. There are 8 Chinese enterprises (including acquisitions) on the list. The top 10 enterprises on the list are: robertbosch (Germany), Denso (Japan), Magna (Canada), mainland (Germany), ZF (Germany), Aisin Jingji (Japan), Hyundai Mobis (South Korea), Lear (United States) Valeo (France), Faurecia (France).

In the list, German enterprises topped the list, accounting for three of the top five. The number of Chinese enterprises on the list increased from 1 in 2013 to 8 in 2018, of which 3 were nexteer, Beijing Hainachuan and Purui acquired through acquisition. Yanfeng, who focuses on interior and exterior decoration, is the only Chinese enterprise to enter the top 20. What should be paid attention to most is the main products of the listed enterprises. The top 10 enterprises mainly focus on products with core technologies such as power transmission, chassis control, transmission and steering system, while Chinese enterprises mainly focus on products such as interior and exterior decoration. Although this list is not necessarily comprehensive, as a list that has been accepted by the world for a long time, the problems it reflects still deserve attention.

Although after decades of development, China has become the world’s largest auto producer and consumer. Its production and sales volume has been the world champion for many years, and its domestic sales volume has even exceeded the combined domestic sales of the United States, Japan and Germany, China is still known as a big auto country, not a powerful country. Because the strength of the automobile industry is not just about heroes in terms of quantity, but has its own logic of “those who get parts get the world”. For China’s automobile industry, it is easy to manufacture complete vehicles, but difficult to manufacture spare parts. The auto parts industry is known as the “ice zone” of China’s auto industry.
