Three Development Bottlenecks of Valve Industry
In China, valve industry belongs to labor-intensive industry. For export products, labor-intensive products will still dominate in quite a long time. At the same time, because of various reasons, the advantage of globe valves which are exported in labor-intensive way is slowly weaken. China’s valve industry must adjust and optimize industrial structure if they want to have a long period development. On the one hand, they have to give full play to the advantages of traditional valve industry continuously. On the other hand, they need to develop the technology intensive and new industries so as to upgrade the valve industry. Only in this way, the gap between developed countries and Chinese valve industry can be shorten as soon as possible.
At present, China's valve industry still give priority to the expansion of the valve volume and this has caused excessive competition at the same level in international market. To change this kind of development, we should adhere to the concept of innovation and be committed to the product development and technical innovation. Also, we can work together with scientific research units and higher learning institutions to actively develop new products. At the same time, make our efforts to expand domestic and foreign markets so as to overcome the quantitative growth and increase the class and added value of products. At last, we need to pay attention to the construction of independent brands and strengthen the competitiveness of sustainable development of the valve industry.
Besides, lacking of professional talents has become the bottleneck for the further development of China's valve industry and this is bound to affect the international competitiveness of China's valve industry. To solve this problem, we should take the road of combining internal development and external import together. On the one hand, we can strengthen the short-term training of enterprise’s staff to improve the existing state of human resources. On the other hand, we can bring in high-quality talents through various methods so as to promote the intellectual capital of the valve industry in China.
Therefore, only valve enterprises seize the opportunity to strengthen the research and development ability, improve product technology content and product quality, as well as adjust and optimize industrial structure and upgrade the valve industry, can they enhance the competitiveness of Chinese valve industry and shorten the gap with developed countries.
