In 2012, China’s mold industry achieved US$20.69 billion in sales for the year, with US$3.23 billion of that from export. Buyers from 188 countries and regions imported China-made moulds in 2012. Demand for advanced machinery remains high in China, especially among manufacturers based across the Pearl River Delta region. For makers of machine tools, consumer electronics and molded products, advanced machinery provided US$2.68 trillion in industrial output value during the first 11 months of 2012, with total sales volume equaling US$ 2.62 trillion, the organizer says.
