China's power tool products have grown from more than 40 varieties of more than 10 varieties in 1965 to more than 200 varieties and more than 300 specifications. In terms of production quantity, China has become a major producer of power tools in the world. In 2000, China's export of electric tools reached 85.12 million units, and the export volume (including parts and components) reached 1.225 billion US dollars. Compared with China, the export value of electric tools increased by 56% in 1999. It is much higher than the 27.8% increase in the country's foreign trade exports and the 36.9% increase in the country's exports of mechanical and electrical products. The high-speed growth of foreign trade in power tool products has attracted the attention of relevant parties.
