Since the beginning of the Year of the Ox, Hunan enterprises, including Sany, Zoomlion, China Railway Construction Heavy Industry Corporation (CRCHI), and Sunward, are in full production. Over the past month, star construction machinery products worth billions of CNY were shipped from Changsha to foreign construction sites.

During the 13th Five-year Plan period (2016-2020), Hunan government has focused on developing its manufacturing industry. Three world-class industrial clusters – construction machinery, advanced rail transport equipment, and airplane engines – have taken shape.  

Hunan has maintained the top position in China’s construction machinery industry for ten years running. Leading enterprises developed parts, research and development, and production systems. High-grade chassis, engines, oil hydraulic pumps, valves, cylinders, and motors were developed and mass production has begun. Hunan is China’s largest hydrocylinder producer. Medium and small parts producers grow rapidly. They contribute to the building of a construction machinery powerhouse together with the leading ones. According to the Hunan Department of Industry and Information Technology, in 2020, the Hunan construction machinery industry had revenue of 256.38 billion CNY, a 52.1% increase over last year.

The rail transit equipment sector shows a growing competitiveness and has become the world’s largest industrial cluster in that field. A number of high-end products, such as the world’s fastest meter-gauge multiple unit trains, and the world’s first super-capacitor 100% low-floor tram, were developed in recent years. Electric locomotive products have a market share of 27%, highest in the world. The National Advanced Rail Transit Equipment Innovation Center, China’s first manufacturing innovation center in rail transit industry, was established in Zhuzhou last November. In 2020, Hunan rail transit equipment manufacturing had a revenue growth of 7.7% over the previous year.

Hunan has formed a complete industrial chain consisting of complete machine production, power system, key parts and components, key basic materials, and comprehensive aviation service for small and medium-sized plane engines. The major products have a more than 75% share of domestic market. The four-generation vortex axis and turboprop engine, filled the gap in their fields in China. The landing gear and wheel braking systems are used on China’s domestically-built large jetliners. In 2020, Hunan aerospace industry (including Beidou Navigation Satellite System) output value grew by 15.7% over the previous year.
