As far as competitive landscape of the market is concerned, local Chinese bi-metal band saw blade companies have been expanding their capacities and making more investments in the R&D of new materials, new technologies and new products, thus continuously improving market shares of local brands, from around 20% in 1999 to 60% or so in 2013. The specific measures are as follows:

Capacity expansion: Bichamp Cutting Technology, a key manufacturer in China, raised its bi-metal band saw blade capacity from 5 million meters in 2009 to 11.72 million meters in 2013; Benxi Tool Limited Liability Corporation boosted its bi-metal band saw blade capacity from 6.30 million meters in 2010 to 15 million meters in 2013;

R&D Expenses: Bichamp Cutting Technology lavished ever more capital on R&D during 2009-2013, from RMB3.38 million to RMB 11.54 million, or from 1.97% to 4.21% of the company's total revenue. In the first half of 2014, the company introduced the brand LEAPCUT, which is targeted at middle and low-end market.

While local brands are grabbing more market share, foreign players that focus on high-end products are also endeavoring to expand their presence in China. Take Japanese Amada for example. The company opened its Shanghai facility in Qingpu District of the city in May 2013; Amada Technical Center (China) opened in Shanghai in July 2013. The revenue of the company in China topped JPY 20 billion in 2012, and is expected to hit JPY 50 billion in 2014.

The Japanese Amada can provide all-round saw cutting services. In the first quarter of FY2014, the company earned revenue of JPY 51.4 billion, a jump of 13.8% from a year earlier, JPY 6.9 billion of which came from band saw business, up 14% from the year before and accounting for 13.4% of the company's total revenue.
