China's kitchen industry has emerged as follows: a number of new development trends:
The development of information technology brings opportunities and challenges to the enterprise. From the opportunity, it is helpful to optimize the business process, reduce the management cost, and gain the advantage in the competition. And those who can not use the information technology to improve the process of enterprises in the competition is obviously at a disadvantage position.
Product structure to the beautiful, fashion, environmental protection, energy consumption of the direction of evolution. Low value-added products must continue to withstand the impact of the domestic industry and a deeper level of competition.
Circulation channel brewing reform. With the rise in recent years, the home appliance chain industry, it has become an important channel for the household electrical appliance industry sales, but due to the home appliance chain store entry costs and higher operating costs, manufacturers have look the other way, such as access to building materials city and the overall kitchen showroom etc..
Future market competition will be more intense kitchen utensils, the industry has reached a stage of re shuffle. But most companies are small, and they are in a difficult situation. Profits so that some large household electrical appliance enterprises have begun to seize the Chuwei market the competition rapidly upgrade nationwide. In particular, a lot of Multi-National Corporation to bring technology, brand, marketing advantages come back, so that the domestic competition is more intense competition.
With the rapid and steady growth of China's national economy, the housing needs of urban residents have major changes, including the development of the related industries, including the kitchen industry has a greater role in stimulating. At the same time, the vast rural market to be developed, coupled with the needs of urban residents, the demand for kitchen utensils will maintain a steady growth momentum.
With the strengthening of environmental protection awareness, the production of environmentally friendly kitchen equipment become an inevitable trend, more and more people pay attention to the environmental protection of the kitchen renovation. Especially in the garbage classification is gradually put on the agenda now, a lot of customer requirements to environmental protection, not only health but also save energy.
First is the overall concept to do environmental protection, the first of which is lightweight, in ensuring the premise of kitchen equipment, strength, stiffness and size and shape, as far as possible reduce the number of components, section size of the parts is reduced; the second is improve the cabinet volume utilization, rational design of goods storage space; three is the use of composite structures, materials and give full play to the function; the fourth is to try using disassembly structure, is conducive to the production and sales and helps recycling old furniture parts.
The current market on the kitchen table is divided into four categories: natural stone (marble, granite countertops, finishes mesa of fire prevention board, stainless steel table, artificial stone countertops. All of them have the basic characteristics of anti fouling, anti hot, anti scratch. But in terms of comprehensive indicators, the most suitable for the use of the kitchen or artificial stone kitchen equipment.
Compared with the natural stone, artificial stone density to be much larger, oil, water stains difficult to penetrate; seam after burnish hind discover not easily commonly; uniform color, design and color is more; is the most important, artificial stone by stone powder pressing, radioactivity is much lower than the natural stone and more environmentally friendly. At the same time, facing mesa of fire prevention board and stainless steel mesa uses particleboard substrate, due to high water absorption, easy to damp deformation; production will use higher formaldehyde content of urea formaldehyde resin adhesive, easy to cause the indoor air pollution.
In addition to the table material, the overall kitchen equipment to use wood material is environmentally friendly, but also make the kitchen look naturally fresh and comfortable. Now many owners like simple style kitchen, build on, kitchen and walkways through can use light color maple cabinets and oak floor continuous cropping, giving the whole space fresh and elegant feeling. At the same time, to create a green kitchen and a lot of details to be carefully arranged and considered. For example, you can add a stack of old wooden bench in the kitchen can not only as a simple meal preparation and Taiwan, also can be used as a flower, breaking the mediocre practices make the kitchen suddenly becomes full of personality, little old wooden table also has the same effect. As long as the elegant shape to flea market Amoy Amoy, maybe there will be unexpected harvest, this approach not only save money also did not affect the appearance.
Now many owners think green with white most easily expressed, but white kitchen clean and concise, but inevitably some cold feeling, this time can be floor with a light oak dining table and the same color line echo, immediately can add visual warmth of feeling. Of course, it is best not to use a wooden table near the sink, to prevent mildew deformation.
Of course, the most important thing is to reduce the energy consumption of environmental protection. Kitchen is the main source of pollution of the family, and kitchen appliances as the core component of the kitchen equipment, whether it has a healthy, environmentally friendly function is more important.
The kitchen pollution mainly has the oil smoke pollution, the noise pollution, the electromagnetic radiation and so on. You should try to choose those with energy saving and low consumption function of kitchen equipment. Such as the oil fume is "high and low, soft speed three speed, long time cooker can use soft speed, power saving and the mute; gas stove is pure blue raging fire; whether the use of shaped light disinfection disinfection cabinet, whether there is intelligent tracking disinfection function.
In addition, the kitchen garbage is the fastest growing bacteria and odor, and timely treatment is particularly important. In order to reduce pollution, the choice of garbage processor is the best way. Some small bones, seafood, egg shells and fish bones and fish head, leaves Caigeng, stone fruit and fruit skin, leftovers and other can rely on garbage processor from the drain away, and solve the problem of the blockage of the sewer.
Garbage processors have a variety of models and specifications, the family can choose according to the number of different models to use. And garbage processor for kitchen sink structure, power supply location has certain requirements, and therefore need to consult in advance.
