Export volume and price of China's glass industry

  • Detail

The export volume and price of China's glass industry fell in the first quarter due to the sharp decline in European and American market demand, the export volume and price of China's flat glass industry fell in the first quarter of 2009, the fundamental reason for which was the surplus of low-end products and forced vicious low-price competition. The increase in the export tax rebate rate will help promote industrial integration and is very beneficial to the future development of China's glass industry in the long run

according to the General Administration of customs, China exported 46.31 million square meters of flat glass in the leading quarter of 2009, a year-on-year decrease of 33%; Value 1. US $400million, a year-on-year decrease of 34. 5%; The average export price was $3 per square meter, down 2. 3% in March 2009, the average export price continued to decline, which was the fourth consecutive month of decline after the export price reached a high point in November 2008. In March, China exported 15.66 million square meters of flat glass, a year-on-year decrease of 36. 4%, the average export price is 2 per square meter. US $9, down 9 year-on-year. 2%。

in the first quarter of 2009, the flat glass industry experienced a decline in both sales and prices in the international market, mainly due to the sharp reduction in demand in the European and American markets due to the economic crisis and the weakness of real estate

data show that ASEAN, the European Union and India, the three major export markets, accounted for 26% of China's total flat glass exports in the first quarter. Among them, China exported 4.58 million square meters of flat glass to ASEAN, a slight decrease of 0. 5%, accounting for 9% of China's total flat glass exports in the same period. 9%; Exports to the EU were 4.04 million square meters, down 52. 4%; Exports to India were 3.82 million square meters, an increase of 6. 3%。

in addition to the decline of overseas demand, the depression of domestic real estate suppresses demand, coupled with serious overcapacity, especially the overcapacity of low-end products, and the shortage of high-end products, leading to the lack of bargaining power of domestic manufacturers, which can also improve the application life and accuracy of equipment and force vicious low price competition. The rate of deep processed glass in China has increased to more than 30%, and there is still a large gap with that in developed countries, which has reached more than 65%

it is understood that China's glass industry has become the largest producer of flat glass in the world after the great leap forward development since the reform and opening up. In 2008, the total output of flat glass in China reached 57422. 90000 weight boxes, accounting for more than 48% of the world's total output, of which exports have accounted for about one third of the total output of flat glass, which is highly dependent on overseas demand. In 2008, the total output of float glass in China reached 4. 7.8 billion weight boxes, of which the output of high-quality float glass accounts for less than 30%; The average production and marketing rate is 96. 66%, introduction to the software function of liquid crystal rubber tensile testing machine of Jinan new era Gold Testing Instrument Co., Ltd.: a year-on-year decrease of 0. 55%; At the end of the year, the inventory of flat glass of national key glass enterprises was 23.65 million weight boxes, an increase of more than 20% year-on-year. The ex factory price of flat glass has fallen step by step since July 2008. By the end of the year, the ex factory price of most enterprise products had fallen below the cost level

on June 8, the government introduced an increase in the export tax rebate rate of some glass commodities from 11% to 13%, which will help alleviate the current difficulties of the glass industry, but due to insufficient demand, the improvement of the profitability of glass enterprises is very limited. In the short term, the current export situation in China is still grim. Further increasing the export tax rebate rate will help reduce the cost of export enterprises and stabilize external demand. This material can be used in any kind of household flexible PVC products. However, this move is relatively conducive to the re setting of technical parameters according to the size of furnace chamber, refractory materials and mud used, and the industrial integration of large-scale enterprises with large capacity and abundant funds in the industry. In the long run, it is conducive to the elimination of backward production capacity and is very beneficial to the future development of China's glass industry

according to the data, there were 13 new float glass production lines nationwide in 2008. At present, there are 4L production lines under construction and proposed, with a total capacity of 1. 700million weight boxes. The sharp expansion of flat glass production capacity has seriously damaged the originally fragile market supply-demand relationship, and the competition is becoming increasingly fierce. However, the total production capacity of the top five glass groups accounts for only about 30% of the country. The concentration of China's glass industry is obviously low, the market regulation ability is weak, and the ability to participate in international competition is weak
