November 10, 2010, the latest customs statistics released show that in October 2010, China’s imports of metalworking machine tools 6799 units, down 40.23 percent, year on year increase of 37.24%; imports amounted to about $ 736 million, a decline of 23.55 %, year on year increase of 109.49%.

However, the average import price up metalworking machine tools dropped by 10%. In October, imports of metalworking machine tools has dropped, but the import price has improved significantly, indicating that the demand for high-end equipment industry is still relatively strong. According to statistics, from January to September, China imported a total of CNC machine tools 12294 units, up 78.9%; imports amounted to $ 2.531 billion, an increase of 25.3%; the average import price of $ 1,870,177 / units, down 32.9% .
