In 2018, the global economic situation is uncertain, the global trade situation is pressing, the political turmoil in the euro area and the risk events of Britain's departure from Europe come and go. Against the background of international trade, China's suspended platform industry has achieved remarkable performance, and its exports have increased significantly over the past year, despite the impact of the persistent downturn of the international economy, especially the negative impact of the U.S. trade policy.

Operational Situation of Suspended Platform Manufacturers in China
Wuxi, Jiangsu Province, is the main production base for production and export of suspended platform in China. Wuxi's suspended platform enterprises also have a high level of technological research, production and knowledge innovation in the whole suspended platform industry. As can be seen from the table below, the total sales of Southern enterprises represented by Wuxi in 2018 are better than those of northern enterprises. But in the top ten, Wuxi enterprises only occupy 4 places, while northern enterprises occupy 6 places. Compared with previous years, many traditional Wuxi enterprises have fallen out of the top 10. Low price is a consistent means of competition for Northern enterprises, but a simple price war is bound to bring adverse effects to the industry. These new situations have sounded an alarm bell for Wuxi enterprises and even the whole suspended platform industry. The inherent knowledge and technology need innovation urgently, and products must be upgraded and replaced. In 2019, Wuxi enterprises and suspended platform industry are facing severe challenges, but there are also many new opportunities.
