India, Vietnam main markets for Chinese textile machinery

China exported textile machinery to a total of 158 countries in the first half of 2013. Of these, the countries of South and Southeast Asia accounted for 50.19 percent of the total textile machinery exports made by China during the six-month period.
 
India imported US$ 236 million worth of textile machinery from China from January to June 2013, showing an increase of 15.89 percent year-on-year, and accounting for 20.08 percent of total textile machinery exports made by China.
 
The textile industry is booming in India, and the local Indian textile machinery manufacturing enterprises are unable to meet the sudden outbreak of demand due to their small-scale production capacity and other problems.
 
In comparison, Chinese textile machinery manufacturers have large-scale production capacity, and have higher technical level and scale of manufacturing than Indian manufacturers, which places them at an advantage.
 
Moreover, Chinese manufacturers usually need only 3-4 months for delivery of textile machinery whereas Indian firms generally require more than 24 months period for delivery of machines.
 
Further, Chinese textile machinery manufacturers produce same grade and quality as the European machinery and equipment at only half the price, which makes them very attractive for the Indian textile industry.
 
In order to develop the textile industry, Indian textile enterprises are likely to increasingly place their machinery orders with Chinese firms, making India the largest overseas market for China’s textile machinery sector.
 
From January to June 2013, China’s textile machinery exports to Vietnam increased by a sharp 129.95 percent. Although Vietnam’s textile industry is growing rapidly, its machinery and equipment manufacturing industry is far behind other countries in the region.
 
At present, Vietnamese textile machinery and equipment manufacturing industry can meet only 20 percent of domestic demand and the sector has to rely on imports for the remaining 80 percent of demand.
 
As more and more orders shift from China and other countries to Vietnam, the demand for Chinese textile machinery is likely to increase in the Southeast Asian nation.
 
China’s textile machinery exports stood at US$ 1.174 billion during the first six months of 2013, showing an increase of 7.41 percent year-on-year.
 
Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Shanghai, Beijing City, and Guangdong were the top five textile machinery exporting provinces, together accounting for 81.72 percent of total Chinese exports.
