Mould Industry is seen as the "mother" of other industries. In recent years, this industry in China has had a fast devel-opment. From 1996 to 2002, the produc-tion value of die and mould industry in- creased at a rate averaged 14% per year or so. In 2003, the production value increased by 25% from a year ago, to RMB 45.0 billion, amounting to US$5.0 billion and ranking the third in the world. According to the data from CDMIA, in 2008, the import and export value of this industry in China totaled US$3.926 billion, increasing by 13.27% from the year before, including US$2.004 billion of import value, down by 2.39%, and US$1.922 billion of export value, up by 36.02%. Generally speaking, the export market still firms up. However, for numerous small and middle-sized ex- port-oriented die and mould companies in China, they are facing a great challenge. There are about 5 to 6 thousand die and mould companies in Ningbo, the center of this industry in China, including 200 plus above the designated size.
