Mr. Wang Sheng, an expert in the compressed air industry, tells us about the development of the compressor industry in China and his expectations for the show this year.

From the beginning of 2016 to the second half of July, there has been a rising trend in the domestic compressor industry in the first quarter and even the first two months of the second quarter.

The overall compressor market situation, as predicted, will not be positive throughout 2016, the sales volume, in set, is about 170,000, which consists of 20% from large enterprises, 30% from medium-sized enterprises, 40% from small enterprises and 10% from microenterprises, among which about 50,000 sets will be sold by foreign invested enterprises which takes up 28% overall. The total sale, comparing with 2015, will experience an estimated 5% decrease.
