Fasteners is a class of mechanical parts for fastening connections and extremely wide applications. Fasteners, the use of a wide range of industries, including energy, electronics, electrical, mechanical, chemical, metallurgical, mold, hydraulic, and other industries, in a variety of machinery, equipment, vehicles, ships, railroads, bridges, buildings, structures, tools, instruments, chemicals, instruments and supplies, can see a variety of fasteners, is the most widely used mechanical foundation parts. It is characterized by a wide variety of specifications, the different performance uses, and the degree of standardization, serialization, generalization is also very high. Therefore, some people also have a national standard for a class of fasteners called standard fasteners, or simply referred to as standard parts.

In December 2013, Japan’s fastener exports totaled 31,678 tons, up 19% year-on-year, up 6% YoY; total exports were 2,736,328.4 million yen, up 25.2% YoY, up 7.8% YoY. December Japan’s main fastener export destinations are mainland China, the United States, and Thailand. As a result, Japan’s fastener export volume increased by 3.9% to 352,323 tons in 2013, and the export value also increased by 10.7% to 298.285 billion yen, with positive growth in both export volume and export value for the second consecutive year.
Among the fastener types, except for screws (especially small screws), all other fastener exports were higher than in 2012, with the largest increase in both export value and export volume being “stainless steel nuts”, with export volume increasing by 33.9% to 1,950 tons and export value increasing by 19.9% to 2.97 billion yen.
The heaviest export of fasteners, “other steel bolts”, increased by 3.6% to 200,665 tons, and the export value rose by 14.4% to 135,846 million yen. The next heaviest export was “other steel bolts”, which increased by 7.8% to 84,514 tons, and the export value increased by 10.5% to 66,765 million yen.
According to the trade data of major customs, Nagoya exported 120,500 tons of fasteners, accounting for 34.7% of the total export volume of fasteners in Japan, winning the title for 19 consecutive years. Compared with 2012, Nagoya and Osaka achieved positive growth in fastener exports, while Tokyo, Yokohama, Kobe, and Moji all experienced negative growth.

The global economy continues to be in the doldrums, overseas export trade is in the doldrums, and many fastener enterprises at home and abroad are facing a severe test. Accelerating the economic transformation and structural upgrading is imminent, to develop overseas markets is undoubtedly an important way out of the current development of the fastener industry.
