Consumer electronics mould mainly refer to mould used in injection molding, plastic mould, mold processing, machinery and industrial equipment, digital photo frame shell, telephone case, air conditioner remote control case, thermostat case, toy mould, electronic case mould etc. After decades of accumulation of mould manufacturing technology, mould products have been gradually applied to various downstream industries, showing a simultaneous development trend of vertical and horizontal depth. On the one hand, light industrial products mainly represented by household appliance, consumer electronic and plastic product, information technology product represented by communication terminal and network terminal, electromechanical equipment and basic elements mainly represented by instrumentation, electrical appliances and integrated circuits, shown a trend of horizontal expansion. On the other hand, with the development of technologies such as industrial computer, industrial Ethernet and manufacturing execution software, mould industry has been promoted to integration and flexible automation, opening a new era of advanced manufacturing application.
With increasing consumption level of people, demand for consumer electronic products is expanding, product upgrading is accelerating, and scale of consumer electronics market continues to grow, and the mold-related industries are rapidly moving forward. Data show that in 2015, global consumer electronics market, driven by rapid growth of smart phone, table, PC and other terminal device, reached nearly 790 billion euros, an increase of 1.5% over previous year. Consumer electronics production, such as mobile phone, personal computer and tablet, accounted for more than 50% of global production, ranking firmly in the world. During the “Thirteenth Five-Year Plan” period, the demand for mould in the consumer electronics industry will continue to show a steady upward trend.
