Nut manufacturers are scarce, and China's standard parts market share ranks first

as a BRICs country, Brazil's economy has gradually recovered in recent years, and the demand for fasteners in various industries continues to rise. The Brazilian fastener market is highly competitive, and consumers pay attention to the price as well as the quality of products. Therefore, many Brazilian buyers import high-quality and low-cost fasteners from China, and the Brazilian market has almost become the Chinese standard

as a BRICs country, Brazil's economy has gradually recovered in recent years, and the demand for fasteners in various industries has continued to rise. The Brazilian fastener market is highly competitive, and consumers pay attention to the price as well as the quality of products. Therefore, many Brazilian buyers import high-quality and low-cost fasteners from China, and the Brazilian market has almost become the world of Chinese standard parts

the economy recovers, and the demand for fasteners in Brazil increases.

in recent years, Brazil's economy has shown a recovery trend, inflation has stabilized, loan interest rates have gradually declined, and industrial output value and gross domestic product have increased slightly. Therefore, the market demand for fastener products is also increasing

according to Revista de parafuso, a professional journal of the Brazilian fastener industry, the annual consumption of fasteners in Brazil in 2017 reached about $1.2 billion, of which the highest proportion was used for automobile assembly, accounting for about 50% of the total, and the remaining 50% included electronic and electrical product assembly, mechanical assembly, construction and other purposes

it is estimated that there are about 4000 fastener manufacturers, importers, exporters and retailers in Brazil, most of which are distributed in Sao Paulo, NANDA River and Santa Catalina, among which there are about 200 manufacturers

ciser, belenus, Rex, acument and jomarca were the top five fastener manufacturers with high production capacity in Brazil in 2017

since 2018, as inflation has stabilized and the loan interest rate has changed gradually, the spring torque tester is mainly used to test the torque, torque, angle of change, torque displacement and other mechanical properties of changing springs, torsion springs, scroll springs, spring springs and various torsion spring elastic parts, and the testing is gradually declining. As a result, the industrial output value and gross domestic product have increased slightly. Therefore, the demand of Brazilian industry for fastener products continues to increase, Imports from abroad also maintained growth

China is the largest import source, and standard parts dominate the market.

according to the statistical data of the Ministry of industry, foreign trade and services of Brazil, the import weight of relevant fasteners (HS code 7318) in Brazil in 2019 was about 62942 tons, better than 52478 tons in the same period in 2018; In dollar terms, the import value of relevant fasteners in Brazil in 2019 was about 340million US dollars, which was also higher than 290million US dollars in the same period in 2018, excluding the following three aspects

in terms of weight, the top five import source countries are the United States, Argentina, Russia, China and Colombia in order; In dollar terms, the top five import source countries are China, the United States, Japan, Germany and Italy in order

in 2019, the top five fasteners imported from Brazil by weight are other screws and bolts (HS code 731815), nuts (HS code 731816), other self tapping screws (HS code 731814), other wood screws (HS code 731812) and other non threaded fasteners (HS code 731829)

in US dollars, the top five items are other screws and bolts (HS code 73181 for this 5), nuts (HS code 731816), other non threaded fasteners (HS code 731829), other washers (HS code 731822) and other self tapping screws (HS code 731814)

Brazil has a large output of screws and bolts, while there are few nut manufacturers. Most of the screws, bolts and nuts produced are used in automobile, furniture, construction and machinery industries, and less in the electronic industry, because when electronic product assembly plants import parts and components from abroad, most of them are equipped with screws

in order to protect the domestic industry, the Brazilian government issued a policy in February 2007, which stipulates that the import of screws, nuts and bolts with simple functions and without overheating treatment must first apply for an import license, and the import declaration price is limited to US $1650 per ton, but the screws for special purposes are not within the scope of the implementation of this measure

at present, China is the largest fastener importer in Brazil, and China's standard parts have a high share in the Brazilian market, almost the world of Chinese standard parts. Most fasteners imported by Brazil from developed countries such as the United States, Japan, Germany, Italy and France are supplied to automobile factories invested by these countries

among the three sales channels, importers play an important role

the fastener industry in Brazil is small, so most fastener demand still depends on fastener producing countries such as China and the European Union. However, in terms of market size, Brazil's leading position in central and South America cannot be underestimated. For fastener manufacturers, it is not difficult to enter the country's market as long as they fully understand and are familiar with the regulations and establish a good cooperative relationship with local importers. The sales channels of Brazilian fastener products can be roughly divided into the following three types:

1. Import agent: Brazilian importers sell the vast majority of imported fastener products to factories through agents, company salesmen or e-commerce in various parts of Brazil, and a small number of them to exclusive stores and retail stores

2. Factory setting or OEM: multinational auto parts factories mostly purchase fastener products from their own countries by setting up factories in Brazil, or cooperate with fastener suppliers through OEM cooperation. However, automobile parts factories have strict requirements for fastener products, and the price and profit margin are also limited

3. Manufacturers produce by themselves or import for resale: Brazilian manufacturers will produce by themselves or wood plastic projects are listed in the national key products and services catalogue of strategic emerging industries; In 2012, "utilization and implementation of wood plastic composite extrusion technology" won the second prize of the national science and Technology Progress Award; In 2016, wood plastic products were listed in the first batch (20 categories) of the national green product catalogue; The fastener products imported since 2017 are resold to dealers such as pontopar and dipal, and then the dealers sell the products to franchised stores and retail stores, and then sell the products to final consumers through physical stores or e-commerce
