In January 2016, the total production and sales volume of China's air-conditioning motor industry was 22.97 million units, down 2.9% year-on-year and 14.1% quarter-on-quarter.

Domestic sales: The sales volume of air-conditioning motors this month was 16.16 million units, down 8.2% year-on-year, and the decline was 5.2 percentage points lower than the previous month. The domestic market of air-conditioner motors has been plagued by high inventory in the whole machine industry and a downturn in the terminal market, which has continued to decline in the 2016 year. However, due to the impact of reserve production during the Spring Festival holiday and the peak season of air-conditioning exports, the orders of motor companies in January were relatively full, and the decline was narrowed year-on-year. In 2016, it was a year in which the air-conditioning industry substantially digested its inventories, which undoubtedly launched a more serious challenge to the survival of motor companies.
