The rapid growth of China's hardware industry in the international status and influence is growing, China is to infinite vitality and vitality, to achieve by the hardware power to the power of the leap from the "hardware" to "big industry", China is becoming the world Hardware manufacturing center, hardware industry is a traditional and emerging and modern industry. Hardware products widely used in the past, people call it hardware, such as nails, scissors, wrenches, knives, these small metal products, has now developed into a major influence in the world industry.
After 30 years of development, China's hardware industry has become more mature, and also occupy an important position in the world market, China's current production of many hardware products in the world, such as lighters, zippers, wrenches, pliers, are Foreign sales have a very good record, at the same time, after years of development, China's hardware industry cluster characteristics of the development of gradually out.
With the development of social economy, the hardware industry in the new situation, cluster development also has obvious characteristics.
China's hardware industry cluster development is divided into three types
First, a long history, a typical representative of Zhangjiagang City, Daxin Zhen is the start of the township enterprises in southern Jiangsu early industrial satellite town, with hardware started, rely on hardware fortune, has 70 years of production history.
Second, industrial clustering, a typical representative of the annual sales income of over 100 billion yuan of large-scale hardware industry gathering area of Zhejiang Yongkang City, a local pillar industry.
Third, the market development, a typical representative of Xiaolan Town, Zhongshan City, Guangdong Province, after years of development, formed a lock, gas as a leader, upstream and downstream products and various accessories complete industrial clusters. These three types of industrial clusters have their own strengths, and formed its own advantages and characteristics, not only made a great contribution to the local, but also support China's hardware industry development and growth, an important pillar of power to go abroad.
The advantages of industrial clusters are obvious, it can effectively solve the management costs and agency costs are too high to avoid long-distance transactions caused by the transaction costs and logistics costs are too high. Industrial cluster is conducive to the depth of division of labor between enterprises, and the depth of division of labor is conducive to the special and fine, is conducive to improving efficiency, is conducive to technological innovation. While favorable investment, but also conducive to saving the cost of transactions, but also more likely to stimulate competition.
Although China's hardware industry by leaps and bounds, with no small progress, but after all, the industrial foundation is thin, compared with foreign advanced enterprises there are many gaps. In the high-end technology, independent intellectual property rights, brand awareness, modern enterprise management, logistics and other aspects of format, need to strengthen and upgrade.
