BEIJING, Feb. 11 -- China's machinery industry continued to expand in 2014 but at a softer pace due to sluggish domestic demands and piling inventories, new data showed on Wednesday.

The added value of the sector increased 10 percent year on year in the last year, slightly down from 10.9 percent in 2013, data from the China Machinery Industry Federation (CMIF) said.

Chinese machinery enterprises posted combined revenues from main businesses at 22.2 trillion yuan (3.62 trillion U.S. dollars), up 9.4 percent from a year ago. The revenues grew 13.8 percent in 2013.

Chen Bin, executive vice president of the CMIF, said the industry, still plagued by overcapacity, will likely continue to slow as they are confronted with weakening demands and fierce competition at home.
