Daily Situation And China’s Glass Industry Development Proposals
Daily glass industry is a traditional industry, has a long history. After the reform and opening up, especially in recent decades the rapid development of the industry have undergone tremendous changes. We are pleased to see that the new furnace technology is widely used, the enterprise’s technology and equipment has improved continuously, a group of backbone enterprises in the fierce competition in the market continue to grow, initially formed a private company operating the main body, into the development of the Group model for the development of circular economy concept of sustainable development-oriented atmosphere and development pattern of the industry. On the industry as a whole, they have broad prospects for development, but also facing unprecedented challenges, can be said that the opportunities and challenges.
1, daily facing the glass industry development environment
At present, the daily glass industry a better external environment for development. There are two reasons: First, the glass industry’s external dependence on daily low, by the international financial crisis less. First half of 2009 daily glass industry above designated size enterprises amounted to 47.62 billion yuan of industrial output value, an increase of 17% on monthly increase of industrial output value chain, in June there are a substantial increase in its operation, the trajectory before the crisis not only with general the same, and in June achieved a new breakthrough in the development of a strong momentum to illustrate daily glass industry has taken the lead out of the shadow of the financial crisis.
Second, daily glass industry developed rapidly in the downstream industry. This year, the pharmaceutical industry, wine manufacturing, beverage and food industry, cosmetics industry in stimulating domestic demand, driven by policy measures, performance are quite eye-catching, wine manufacturing, beverage industry, cosmetics industry, industrial output grew by 17.2% year on year, respectively, 22.8% and 6%, the glass packaging market demand for the daily development of the glass industry, a larger space for development. At the same time, coal and other raw materials prices, in improving business conditions have some help.
At present, the daily-use glass industry are also facing serious competition. First, new technologies, new materials are emerging daily glass of traditional market is being challenged. In recent years, the rapid development of the domestic stainless steel vacuum containers, has developed into annual sales exceeding 5.0 billion, export 400 million U.S. dollars in emerging industries. The rise of stainless steel vacuum containers of products, will erode the traditional thermos markets its products in order to light weight, anti-burst, the advantages of anti-extrusion by consumers of all ages.
At the same time, metal packaging, plastic packaging is also new challenges to the glass packaging, replacing some of the traditional glass packaging market, market competition more intense. Second, the downstream group of companies will extend the industry chain to the upper reaches of the investment to set up glass packaging business, disrupt the original layout of the market, these companies generally have large scale, technology and equipment of new features, and investing needs of corporate packaging as a guarantee, showing very expansionary. These companies joined the industry into a new power, but also accelerated the competition in the industry.
2, daily glass industry the main problems and countermeasures
Daily glass industry over the past decade rapid development since 2003, its annual output to 1 million tons per year rate of increase, industries have been expanding in the fierce market competition, a number of leading enterprises have emerged and become the backbone of development of the industry. At the same time, we should also see that development of the industry is still very uneven, the overall level is not high, some companies seeking short-term benefits and low-level redundant construction, low-price shock the market, the industry normal development environment is threatened. It can be said on the industry as a whole, we still not free from the shackles of the traditional mode of development, excessive price competition weakened the profitability of the industry, so that many enterprises lack of development potential, the industry’s outlook has not been much change.
These issues were universal, binding all sectors of development a common problem. In a market economy conditions, in the early stages of development of the industry, price competition is the principal means of market competition, particularly in the production of glass packaging products business, not only intra-industry competition, but also upstream and downstream enterprises to withstand the pressure to pass the cost of production, living environment in general may be weak.
To solve this problem is to rectify trade order, and one we need to raise the access threshold; two out of the industry to speed up the backward production capacity, the transformation of economic growth as the key to development of the industry to create an environment conducive to development of the industry. Industry’s main tasks: First, we must strive for industrial policy support, and strive to eliminate backward production capacity in government working directory to improve efforts; Second, existing businesses to accelerate change in mode of development, creating a higher labor productivity, energy-saving emission reduction, the development of recycling economy mode to seek a breakthrough; third is to strengthen the enterprise self-discipline, standardize industry practices, and foster environmentally friendly, resource recycling industry’s image. What must be emphasized is that we must take daily glass industries into national sustainable development cycle in the economic system of planning, the only way to get more industrial policy support, industry will be able to win the sustained and healthy development.
Global warming has become the focal point of attention around the world related to humanity’s survival and development. Developed countries have to control carbon emissions as an economic evaluation index, the resulting new model of economic development – “low-carbon economy”. “Low-carbon economy” refers to the low power consumption, low pollution and low emissions. “Low-carbon economy” principle is an important task will be a variety of production activities of the carbon emissions calculation, control the total amount. This new concept of energy efficiency and environmentally friendly economic development, placed in a prominent position, is bound to lead to economic growth, great changes in industrial structure. I have mentioned above, to “the daily development of glass industry into national sustainable development cycle in the economy plan” is to seize this new trend, make arrangements ahead and win opportunities.
“Low-carbon economy” is an important way to achieve a circular economy, resource recycling, recycling of resources. Daily glass industry to enter the country’s sustainable development, a cycle is necessary to solve the waste glass recycling economy, build the recycling industry chain, which is a strategic choice. Now the industry has undertaken a number of businesses in this area, such as Shenzhen Huajing Glass Co., Ltd., the proportion of their raw materials in the waste glass has reached more than 80%, and achieved good economic and social benefits. That alone is not enough, we must act now become industry-wide corporate behavior, comprehensively improve the raw material re-utilization, but also become the country’s industrial policies.
All of you here are some of the representatives of industry technical experts, hope that the glass industry with daily reality, to do some “low-carbon economy” research, according to the production process and raw materials, energy consumption, recycling, after assessing the level of carbon emissions, study of coping strategies, highlighting the physical properties of glass stability, shelf-life preservation of safe, reliable, renewable re-use etc., and avoid weaknesses, to carry out targeted promotional planning, creating a momentum for the development of the industry.
This regard, we can learn from successful experiences in the paper industry. As we all know, paper industry is energy-hungry, but also pollution of large, long-term carrying a high-pollution bad name. In the energy-saving emission reduction, after the industry’s own efforts, by the National Development and Reform Commission issued the “paper industry development policy” for the industry development of institutional mechanisms to ensure that, this industry has entered a fast track. In recent years, out of 3 million tons for the small paper mills and backward production capacity, the industry’s development environment improved. At the same time, they promote the development of forestry-paper integration model has been the promotion of tree planting to increase tree cover to sum up the results, a highly publicized in the community to establish the image of the green industry, industrial policy to win more support.
3, daily glass industry development proposals
My daily glass industry has exceptional conditions for the development and broad market space. First, China’s quartz sand-rich, since the reform and opening up through the introduction of foreign advanced technology, advanced equipment, the domestic household glass production technology matures, with foreign countries continued to narrow the gap. Second, is the world’s developed countries, environmental protection, labor costs and other reasons, to speed up the industrial transfer speed, China’s resources and markets have obvious advantages to become a major undertaking land. The third is the continuous improvement of people’s living standards, the domestic market, increasing demand for glass products, glass products, the physical properties of stability, security, health, price is good, other materials can not be replaced. 4 is a daily glass of applications is very broad, the development of new applications, expanding industrial scale is a necessary condition for development of the industry.
Some parts of the glassware industry cluster-style development, has formed a certain regional advantages to develop a strong momentum in the export market potential is great. The question now is not high enough level of technology, lack of brand influence, channel construction is lagging behind the development of the industry. If the power company to do alone is obviously not enough, did not play its due role in industry clusters, industry clusters in other industries learn from experience in building, product innovation, brand building and channel development of industrial clusters can be incorporated into public service platform construction, by local governments and associations, in concentrating power.
Product development, product exporting countries to study the culture, in the product into the more cultural elements, close to local market needs. Glass in building decoration materials market development space is vast, the key market development go far enough. Competition in the glass packaging industry has already entered the low-profit stage, the expansion of production scale enterprises to reduce production costs is the primary means of glass packaging products, but are subject to the needs of downstream businesses, and by the transport radius restrictions and expand the scale of production can not solve all the problems, needs make a fuss about changing the product mix, according to product mix changes in the regional characteristics enterprises to achieve a variety of products.
Promote daily glass industry, the need to expand development ideas. On the market, the product applications in different industries are always inter-penetration of competing with each other, while the industry is often the most active part of the newly developed markets, which requires not only the depth of excavation for traditional product areas, but also to nurture emerging markets. The present situation is the industry’s enterprises in the traditional products on the market flame was Daoguang see a shadow, increasingly slim profit margins, but occasionally involved in emerging markets simply because the market is risky.
When the industry from the competition developed to the stage of competing alone in the market, worked hard for business alone is not enough, social development has put the industry are closely linked into a coherent whole, the industry’s level of development and industry in national economy The location determines the living conditions of enterprises. Our entrepreneurs should stand high on the development of the industry to examine issues, to promote the development of the industry for their responsibility in promoting development of the industry to maximize the pursuit of business interests. Here are representative of the industry key enterprises are the backbone of development of the industry, we should learn from the experience of other light industries, the establishment of mechanisms for inter-firm linkages, to work together on problems in the development of the industry to assume the responsibility to jointly promote the development of the industry.
The international financial crisis on the world economy caused a huge impact on the light of the negative impact is multi-faceted. From the light in the first half of economic operation situation, the decline in exports light industrial products, the financial impact of the crisis is still a continuation of difficult task to maintain growth. At the same time, we should also see that the State Council issued a series of “maintain growth, expand domestic demand, structural adjustment” policy measures have achieved initial results in the majority of the industry in the first half light output (volume) increased month by month , showing strong growth, overall growth has entered a recovery phase, is expected to achieve annual growth of more than 10%, the first out of the slump caused by the global financial crisis entered a new development cycle.
In response to the financial crisis, we stressed the need to objectively look at current industry problems, not to attribute all the problems occur the financial crisis at the expense of its own summary of the problems and bug fixes. In particular to deepen their understanding of changes in mode of development, adjusting the industrial structure, awareness of the importance of the laws of economic development towards a more scientific certainty. At present, the light industry, the goal to curb the basic realization of the economic downturn, the industry as a whole into the recovery period, the work emphasis will gradually shift from the security increased up to adjust the structure, readjustment of industrial structure will follow the increase, we must recognize clear this situation, arrange a good job.
