In recent years, the automotive rubber parts industry in our market has shown the following characteristics:
(1) Concentration of large-scale and specialized development. At present, the scale of production of foreign rubber products companies is expanding day by day, and the degree of specialization is getting higher and higher. The annual sales of foreign super large rubber products companies are as high as 2 billion US dollars. , The development trend of intensive production. For example, the German Continental Company, the Japanese NOK Oil Seal Company, the French Hutchinson Company, the American Gates Company and other well-known foreign rubber products companies, they all have multiple professional production plants, which can engage in automation, mechanization and specialized production, and the economic scale is huge.
(2) Collaborative development and modular supply with vehicle companies. In developed countries, automotive rubber products companies attach great importance to product research and development and regard it as the lifeblood of the company. Therefore, they do not hesitate to invest a lot of manpower and financial resources in research on raw materials, product structure design, and product testing. Some companies’ R&D investment can account for 1/3 of the total investment. They independently carry out product structure design and CAE simulation analysis, which are synchronized or even ahead of the development of new models. The implementation of modular supply means that after vehicle companies put forward product requirements, supporting companies with development capabilities gather and propose solutions, collaborative production, and supply and assembly in a serialized and modular manner.
