    Although domestic elevator production and possession growth is relatively fast, market demand still has great potential. According to the statistics of the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine, as of the end of 2015, the number of registered elevators was 4.26 million, which is nearly one-third of the total number of elevators in the world. The average service life of elevators is based on 10 years. There are 100,000 elevators in demand, so China will remain the world's largest elevator market for a long time to come. With the continuous deepening of the country's urbanization process, the domestic elevator industry still has a large room for development. With the rapid improvement of the technical level and product quality of domestic elevators and the relatively low manufacturing cost, the domestic elevator export competitiveness has increased. In 2014, 2015 and 2016, elevator exports have continued to grow, achieving a total export volume of 69,000 units. The export prospects of 74,000 units and 76,000 units, which respectively increased 4.55%, 7.25% and 2.7%, have created additional development space for the Chinese elevator industry.
    3. Chinese and foreign companies fully compete in the domestic market
    There are many domestic elevator industry enterprises, mainly including foreign elevator enterprises and local elevator enterprises. According to the statistics of China Elevator Association, foreign brands accounted for 54% of the domestic market share in 2015, and domestic local elevator brands accounted for 46% of the market. The manufacture of China's elevators and parts and components is basically concentrated in the Yangtze River Delta and the Pearl River Delta region. The total elevator production in the Yangtze River Delta region accounts for more than 60% of the country's total. The number of complete machines and accessories companies is large, forming an elevator, escalator and zero. Component industry cluster.
    After years of development, the elevator machine industry has evolved from a foreign-owned monopoly to a state of full competition between Chinese and foreign-funded enterprises. The industry's profit level has also changed from the original monopoly profit to the current full-competition market. Foreign-owned brand elevator enterprises have strong profitability by virtue of brand and technology advantages.
    In recent years, the technological strength of China's national elevator enterprises has been continuously enhanced, and the scale of production has been continuously expanded. With the product cost performance advantage, the competitiveness in the field of low- and medium-speed elevators and escalators has been continuously strengthened, and the profitability has also increased. In the future, with the increasingly fierce market competition, some small and medium-sized elevator manufacturers will gradually be eliminated by the market because they do not have the cost scale and technical advantages, and the national elevator manufacturing enterprises with their own brands and certain market positions will get better. Development, market share will be further improved.
Intelligent manufacturing is the direction of enterprise transformation reform
    As a special equipment for mechatronics, elevator products are a concentrated expression of mechanical devices, electric drives and computer controls. The core technology of the elevator machine is focused on drive technology and control technology, and the upgrade of elevator products is also an upgrade of these key technologies.
    At present, the technical level of elevators in China's major elevator enterprises is close to the world's advanced level. The gap between national brands and foreign brands is mainly concentrated in the high-end products of vertical elevators, such as high-speed vertical elevators above 4 m / s, new concept elevators. The application of technology. In the future, under the impetus of “Made in China 2025”, intelligence will become the direction of transformation and reform of elevator enterprises.
    On the one hand, in the elevator manufacturing process, the elevator enterprises must realize the intelligent transformation, need to promote the upgrading and upgrading of the elevator manufacturing technology, realize the upgrading and transformation of the existing production equipment and technology, actively explore the construction of the intelligent factory in the elevator field, and let the elevator products More room for development in the field of automation and intelligent equipment.
    On the other hand, the intelligent level of elevators determines the quality of elevator products and services, and is also the key to industry progress. Elevator enterprises should increase their investment in intelligent and high-end technology fields and master the core technologies to continuously upgrade the intelligent level of elevator systems, realize product intelligence, production intelligence, management intelligence and service intelligence. Enterprise transformation and upgrading, enhance the competitiveness of the industry and the status of the national elevator brand.
    IoT realizes intelligentization of elevator safety supervision
    With the increase in the number of elevators, higher requirements are imposed on elevator safety supervision. Faced with the huge number of elevators, how to reduce the elevator safety accident rate has become an urgent problem for the regulatory authorities, elevator companies and users.
    The combination of Internet of Things technology and elevator system can effectively solve the elevator safety monitoring problem and reflect the development trend of China's elevator industry technology intelligence. The application of the Internet of Things technology in the elevator field will play an important role in building an elevator information system, realizing the intelligentization of elevator safety supervision and promoting the development of the elevator industry. It can make effective information and data exchange between elevator whole machine enterprise, quality supervision department, maintenance enterprise, accessory enterprise, property enterprise, elevator passenger and real estate enterprise, thus realize intelligent management of elevator and guarantee elevator operation. Reliability.
    On the one hand, once the elevator fails, it can be discovered in time, and can help analyze the cause of the fault by using a large number of elevator running data to improve the maintenance efficiency; on the other hand, the key information is monitored in real time during the elevator running, if some parameters are abnormal, Advance maintenance in advance to avoid the occurrence of elevator failures, effectively improve elevator safety and ensure passenger safety. Therefore, the elevator Internet of Things has become a new profit point for the safety maintenance of many enterprises. More and more manufacturers will introduce the Internet of Things technology into the elevator system, which is also one of the main development directions of the future elevator market.
