December 2010 China’s metal processing machine tool imports analysis
The latest statistics of Customs released, in December 2010, China’s imports of metalworking machine tools 12647 units, down 16.71 percent, year on year increase of 62.93%; imports amounted to about $ 1.107 billion, growth of 6.23%, year on year increase of 85.07 %. The average import price of $ 87,549 / units, growth of 27.54 percent, year on year increase of 13.59 percent. Year 2010, China’s total imports of metal processing machine tool 114,496 sets, an increase of 80.6% over the same period in 2009 of 63,388 units; imported a total amount of approximately $ 9.424 billion, compared with $ 5.885 billion in the same period in 2009 increased by 60.1%; import average priced at $ 85,565 / unit, compared to $ 918,552,009 in the same period of / Taiwan still down 6.85%.
