Doosan hits Chinese milestone

Doosan Infracore has surpassed the 200,000 mark in the cumulative production of excavators in China, a first among all foreign companies operating in China.

Doosan Infracore has announced that its Chinese subsidiary, DICC (Doosan Infracore China Corporation Co., Ltd.), located in Yantai, China, had produced its 200,000th excavator in the country. The company set this record some 26 years after establishing its presence in China back in October 1994.

Doosan Infracore is the first MNC (Multinational Corporation) operating in China to achieve the impressive cumulative production figure of 200,000 units. The company has steadily strengthened its market position in the Chinese market for MNC excavators, increasing its market share from 12.9% in 2015 to 22.8% in the third quarter of 2020. The Chinese MNC excavator market has positioned itself as a market with a large amount of profitable equipment sales to higher-tier customers.

The Chinese excavator market recorded its largest ever annual figure of 200,000 units in 2019. However, it contracted for about two months in the aftermath of the COVID-19 crisis at the beginning of 2020, but has recorded rapid recovery since March.

The market is estimated to have achieved another record in 2020 by growing to 275,000 units per year. In 2019, Doosan Infracore sold more than 15,000 units in the Chinese excavator market, while its total sales up until the end of the third quarter of last year amounted to 14,348 units, up 21% from the same period in 2019. In addition, it posted sales revenue of KRW 308.9 billion during the third quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 55% over the same period the previous year.
