3. The high-quality development of construction machinery industry has achieved positive results

In 2022, the whole industry will continue to implement the innovation-driven development strategy, adhere to the "four directions", accelerate the pace of independent innovation, strengthen industry-university-research and application cooperation, continue to accelerate the speed of digital transformation and intelligent upgrading, remarkable achievements in green development, upgrade and switch the National IV emission standards for non-road machinery as scheduled, popularize and apply a number of scientific research achievements, and further optimize the industrial chain and supply chain. New breakthroughs were made in the R&D and manufacturing of high-end parts and components, and major technologies and equipment continued to be put on the market, better meeting the needs of national infrastructure and major projects. The industrial base has been upgraded and the capacity to modernize the industrial chain has been significantly improved.

In a word, the construction machinery industry has weathered multiple tests in 2022, overcome the severe impact of the epidemic and triple pressures, and achieved stable development. Exports have played an outstanding supporting role in achieving continuous and substantial growth. Overall, the economy has performed in line with expectations for the whole year, which is commendable.

(2) Trend forecast of construction machinery industry in 2023

In January 2023, due to fluctuating factors such as holidays, epidemic and the implementation of national Phase 4 emission standards in December, the sales of major products of construction machinery were relatively low. Data for the first half of February show an improvement.

There are many factors conducive to the stable development of the construction machinery industry in 2023: China has won a major and decisive victory in epidemic prevention and control, the national macro-policy control is strengthened, the coordination and cooperation of various policies are improved, the real estate will gradually get out of the bottom, and the role of investment will be strengthened. Major projects and projects have been started successively; The economy will achieve a steady growth target, and the demand for construction machinery will be good. Generally speaking, the whole industry is expected to face a certain pressure in the first quarter of 2023, but as time goes by, the pressure will gradually ease, the annual domestic construction machinery market demand will be better than 2022; Exports are expected to remain at a high level, although they will face challenges due to base factors and increasing downward pressure on overseas economies. It is expected that the construction machinery industry will achieve effective improvement in quality and reasonable growth in quantity.

In 2023, the escalation of geopolitical conflicts will still threaten the recovery of global trade, inflationary expectations will continue, the game between major powers in key areas will intensify, developed economies will raise their demands for industrial chain security, the risk of world economic recession will rise, and the export of construction machinery will face certain uncertainties. The domestic economy is still faced with the triple pressure of shrinking demand, supply shock and weakening expectations. The construction machinery market in some areas still needs to be digested, and the industry will face both new opportunities for development and severe challenges.
