Market collision Two or three things about the development of China's ice machine industry


   In recent years, with the rapid development of my country’s supermarkets, aquatic products and other industries, ice machines have risen rapidly in the industry. Although the ice machine industry has a relatively short development time in China, it has come from the global market. It can be seen that the current ice machine industry in developed countries is very mature and the industry scale is relatively large, while some African and developing countries are relatively backward. From the perspective of the overall market of the ice machine industry, due to the continuous economic development of my country and the continuous increase of industrial construction sites, the probability of using ice making equipment has also increased. In addition, with the continuous improvement of living standards, domestic residents have begun to have the habit of eating ice. Especially in large cities with relatively developed economies, household consumption began to increase, which also made the market active. In recent years, some high-end hotels and entertainment venues have continuously emerged, and the demand for ice machines has also been rising.

  The procurement channels are mainly agents

  The ice machine industry has been developing in China for many years. Due to factors such as economic conditions and consumption habits, the current market size is still limited. From the perspective of application fields, household applications are rare in the industrial and commercial fields and export markets. Small ice machines are expensive for ordinary domestic consumers. A commercial machine with a daily output of tens of kilograms of ice costs about 2,000 yuan, and the output of one ton of ice is about 20,000 yuan. At present, most people still think The ice machine is not very useful for the family, it is a luxury product, and the household market is small. If the ice machines produced in my country are exported, they are mainly exported to relatively backward regions such as Africa.

   According to a rough survey, there are more than 00 ice machine manufacturing companies in China. There are dozens of companies of various sizes in Guangdong alone, and many of them are workshop companies. Manitowa (China) Refrigeration Co., Ltd., as a world-renowned ice machine manufacturer, has also revealed hidden concerns when it comes to its survival status. At present, there are more than a dozen prominent companies in China’s ice machine industry. The annual sales volume is only 50,000 units, and the annual sales volume of household ice machines is far smaller than this figure. There is no exact statistics yet due to the small number. The result is a high degree of industry fragmentation, weak research power, and lack of relevant standards, resulting in a weak voice in the entire industry, and companies in the industry are confused.

   Although the compressor is a key component of the ice machine, its company does not have much subjective initiative in the market. As the scale of the ice machine industry is stagnant, the demand for compressors is only hovering at a low level. The order volume is small. In view of this, under normal circumstances, most ice maker companies will choose to order from local agents. Unless the order number is large enough, they will consider buying compressors directly from compressor manufacturers.

   has a high degree of brand concentration

   Although the product types of compressors for ice machines are rather messy, in this market, brands of different product types show the characteristics of convergence. According to the industry According to online reporters' understanding of the well-known ice machine manufacturers such as Grant, Scotts and Shanghai Janbot, Meyourer, Copeland, Bitzer, and Hanzhong Precision Machinery account for most of the market share of compressors in this field. .

  According to industry insiders, domestic fully enclosed compressors generally choose brands such as Meiyoule and Copeland, although there are also Tian Feng, Taikang, KK, Sporlan, Aspara , Huangshi Dongbei and other brands, but its compressor power is relatively small, mainly installed in small household ice machines, or only for individual ice machine companies, the market share is low.

   Most manufacturers use semi-hermetic piston compressors for ice machines with an ice output of 3-5 tons. Most of the brands are Bitzer's piston compressors, and some manufacturers use Copeland piston machines. For the compressors used in ice machines with an ice output of 5-30 tons, most manufacturers will choose to use brands such as Hanzhong Precision Machinery and Yantai Ice Wheel.

  Because the technology of ice making machines, especially the ice making technology for industrial and commercial use, is mainly monopolized by the Germans, some well-known ice making machine companies in the industry generally do not easily use other-brand compressors in the selection of compressors. .

  As an industrial and commercial cbfi ice machine, especially the application mine-specific cbfi ice machine Fujian Snowman, BITZER is generally the first choice for the compressor.

   In addition, the choice of brand is also closely related to the customer requirements of ice machines. Some customers will designate ice machine companies to select compressors of specific brands. As one of the leading companies in commercial compressors, Sanyo compressors are not only used in some household and commercial machine fields, but also Sanyo compressors are used in industrial ice machines. The ice produced by the ice maker equipped with Sanyo compressors is mainly used for mixing concrete. It is said that this alone makes Sanyo compressors an annual revenue of 6 billion yuan. It should be said that Sanyo compressors have a relatively stable position in the industrial ice machine market.

There is a strong need for more research on , in order to be able to provide strong and conclusive evidence of their ice maker machine effects. However, recent studies have provided valuable insights into how the intake of may result in improved ice maker machine.
