In November 2018, the total output of the scroll compressor industry was 251,500 units, with a year-on-year decrease of 37.05%, up 10.45% from the previous month; the total sales volume was 249,100 units, with a year-on-year decrease of 37.04%, up 10.48% from the previous month; the domestic sales volume was 216,600 units, with a year-on-year decrease of 39.37%, up 10.21% from the previous month; and the export volume was 375,000 units, with a year-on-year decrease of 19.60%, up 12.05% from the previous month. From January to November 2018, the cumulative output of the scroll compressor industry was 346.65 million units, down 8.16% from the same period last year, and the cumulative sales volume was 346.39 million units, down 7.98% from the same period last year.
In November, the scroll compressor industry continued to show a sharp downward trend, with a narrower year-on-year decline in production and sales, and a slight increase over the previous month. In this month, the export market has been in a downturn, with the domestic market declining by nearly 40%. Influenced by the weakening downstream demand for the whole machine and the impact of the dual-rotor model, the mainstream scroll manufacturers have suffered from various declines. From the downstream application point of view, the sales of household air conditioners in November continue to be off-season. With the end of the year, the manufacturers began to stock in advance, the production rhythm has been restored, and the output increased slightly year on year. For commercial air-conditioning, the overall growth of the industry slowed to single digits in November. Among them, unit products still showed a downward trend, a single-digit decline compared with the same period last year; the growth rate of multi-online has slowed down, only achieving single-digit growth; and modular machines have maintained nearly 10% growth.
In November, the export volume of scroll compressors was 37.5 million units, down 19.60% from the same period last year; the export volume was 12.5503 million yuan, down 1.94% from the same period last year; the unit export price was 334.46 dollars per unit, up 21.95% from the same period last year. Export market continued to decline this month. The export performance of mainstream scroll compressor enterprises was different. Dajin and Denvers in Xi'an increased compared with the same period last year, while other enterprises showed a significant decline. In terms of export areas, Brazil, India and France are the regions that export more this month, among which Brazil and India market performance is not as good as the same period last year, while the Middle East region which performed better in the same period last year was affected by unreasonable factors such as domestic political turmoil and economic fluctuations, and the market performance was low. Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and other regions showed a sudden poor performance this month, with a significant year-on-year decline.
