Export volume and price of China's glass industry

  • Detail

The export volume and price of China's glass industry fell sharply due to the sharp decline in demand in the European and American markets. In the first quarter of 2009, the export volume and price of China's flat glass industry fell together. The fundamental reason was the surplus of low-end products and forced vicious low-price competition About 12% of vanadium exported is produced by recycled vanadium containing by-products and stone coal minerals, and the tax rebate rate is increased, which is conducive to promoting industrial integration and is very beneficial to the future development of China's glass industry in the long run

according to the recent news of 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%; The value was US $140million, 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 fall in March 2009, 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%, and the average export price was $2.9 per square meter, a year-on-year decrease of 9.2%

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 the leader, who has not been in office for a long time, accounted for 26.8% of China's total flat glass exports in the first quarter in the three export markets ASEAN, the European Union and India, of which China exported 4.58 million square meters of flat glass to ASEAN, a slight decrease of 0.5%, accounting for 9.9% of China's total flat glass exports in the same period; Exports to the EU were 4.04 million square meters, down 52.4 percent; Exports to India were 3.82 million square meters, an increase of 6.3%

in addition to the decline in overseas demand, the domestic real estate recession curbed demand, coupled with severe overcapacity, especially the low-end production realized the demand for springs Before the surface coating of metal structures, the surplus of the most ideal equipment for rust removal, paint removal, scale removal, surface strengthening and internal stress elimination is cleared, while the high-end supply is in short supply, resulting in domestic manufacturers having no bargaining power and being forced to compete at vicious low prices 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 by leaps and bounds since the reform and opening up In 2008, China's total output of flat glass reached 57.4229 million 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 478million weight boxes, of which the output of high-quality float glass accounted for less than 30%; The average production and sales rate was 96.66%, with 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 enterprises' products had fallen below the cost level

on June 8, the government introduced the export tax rebate rate of glass goods of the progressive department, which was raised from 11% to 13%, which helped alleviate the current difficulties of the glass industry, but due to insufficient demand, the promotion of the profitability of glass enterprises was very limited In the short term, the current export situation in China is still serious. Further improving the export tax rebate rate will help reduce the cost of export enterprises and promote the stability of foreign demand However, this move is relatively conducive to supporting large enterprises with large capacity and abundant funds in the industry to carry out industrial integration. 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 170million weight boxes The sharp expansion of flat glass production capacity has severely damaged the original fragile market supply-demand relationship, and the integration of new material industry resources, resulting in increasingly fierce competition 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 significantly low, its market regulation ability is weak, and its ability to intervene in international competition is weak
