In October, the scroll compressor industry continued its rebound trend, with a slight increase in production and sales compared with the same period of last year, and a relatively large decline compared with the previous month. Due to the small base in the same period last year, the domestic and export markets performed fairly well this month. Among them, the domestic market began to stabilize in the short term after a decline of more than a year. While the export market continues to show a rebound trend. From the perspective of downstream applications, the overall performance of the domestic air-conditioning industry in October was better as shown by industry online statistics. The production and sales level showed single-digit growth compared with the same period last year. Among them, the domestic market showed average performance, but due to a small base in the same period last year, the domestic sales volume was flat and slightly increased. The export market benefited from the gradual easing of trade policies and the return of stable export orders, achieving single-digit year-on-year growth over the same period last year. In terms of commercial air conditioning, the industry as a whole continued to grow slightly in October. Among them, as a mainstream product, multi-line air conditioning showed stable performance this month, with the growth rate slightly higher than the overall average growth level of commercial air conditioning. In other products, unit machines showed a slight growth while modular machines showed a slight decline.
In terms of exports, the export volume of scroll compressors was 36,300 units in October, up 8.53% year on year. Exports were 11.95 million US dollars, up 16.19% year on year. The export unit price was 329 US dollars/unit, up 7.05% year on year. The export market performed well this month, but mainstream scroll compressor enterprises performed differently, among which Emerson and Xi 'an Daikin performed well this month, achieving significant growth over the same period last year. In terms of export regions, India, Brazil and the United States are the regions with higher export volume this month, with India and Brazil both showing growth trend compared with the same period last year, while the export to the United States is declining.
