(1) is encouraged by the state industrial policy related industrial policy "metal pressure vessel industry is listed in the relevant national industrial policy to encourage, good industrial policy environment conducive to the sustainable development of the industry in the future.
(2) the upgrading of the equipment manufacturing industry is the path towards a manufacturing powerhouse The equipment manufacturing industry technical level and strength, directly affects and decides the its downstream industries and the competitiveness of the products, is important embodiment of national comprehensive national strength. All the industrial powers in the world, without exception, are great powers in equipment manufacturing. Benefiting from the sustained and rapid development of China's national economy and the strong support of the state, China's transformation from a manufacturing country to a manufacturing power has become an inevitable trend. The backdrop of the upgrading of industrial equipment in our country, an important application field of metal pressure vessels such as the application of clean energy, new energy, seawater desalination equipment manufacturing etc included in the current guidelines on priority to the development of high technology industrialization key areas (2007) and the industrial structure adjustment guidance catalogue (2005), the downstream industry upgrading of metal pressure vessel manufacturing industry bring enormous opportunities for development and market prospects.
(3) the development of equipment manufacturing industry is gradually shifting to the asia-pacific region.
Influenced by the increasing economic globalization and labor costs, the center of gravity of the world's manufacturing industry is gradually shifting to the asia-pacific region. ASME certification is the most widely accepted and applied pressure vessel standard in the world, and it is studied and popularized by more and more enterprises in China. According to the statistics of China chemical equipment association, in 2007, the number of ASME card holders in China was 260, up 33% from the previous year. As of June 2009, that number had increased to 390, the second highest in the world. The number of licensed enterprises in jiangsu province is 126. After years of development, China's manufacturing industry has developed a considerable scale and power base, which provides a realistic possibility for foreign countries to transfer equipment manufacturing to China.
(4) in the introduction, absorption, digestion and innovation on the basis of developing new technology, new technology suitable for China's national conditions, has trained a large number of technical backbone and experienced managers, with the development the core competitiveness of domestic and international markets.
