Ministry of industry and information technology: the whole industry of flat glass lost more than 400million yuan in the first half of this year.
according to the news of the State Ministry of industry and information technology on this day, the Ministry of industry and information technology issued the opinions on curbing overcapacity and repeated construction in the flat glass industry. It pointed out that the whole industry of flat glass lost more than 400million yuan in the first half of this year. Although the first three quarters have turned losses into profits, the situation is still very serious
in order to further strengthen and improve the governance of the flat glass industry, the Ministry of industry and information technology issued the opinions on curbing overcapacity and redundant construction and guiding the healthy development of the flat glass industry on November 27, 2009, in order to implement the notice of the State Council on Approving and transmitting the opinions of the development and Reform Commission and other departments on curbing overcapacity and redundant construction and guiding the healthy development of the industry (GF  No. 38) The opinion points out that we should be fully familiar with the seriousness of the current development situation of the flat glass industry
the opinion points out that flat glass is an important industrial product. In addition to being used in traditional buildings, automobiles, furniture, decoration and other fields, the demand for emerging fields such as electronic information and photovoltaic power generation is also expanding In recent years, China's flat glass industry has developed rapidly. In 2008, the total production capacity reached 650million heavy boxes, and the total output of flat glass was 574million heavy boxes, accounting for about 50% of the world's total output of glass However, due to the impact of the international financial crisis, the flat glass industry, which had severe overcapacity, was on the verge of loss in 2008 Recently in the first half of this year, the whole industry lost more than 400million yuan Despite turning losses into profits in the first three quarters, the situation is still very serious
the opinion points out that the current development of flat glass industry faces prominent problems: first, repeated construction and overcapacity are still intensifying There are more than 30 production lines under construction and proposed, with a capacity of 120million heavy containers, and the problem of overcapacity may further deteriorate; Second, the structure is unfair Ordinary float flat glass is in severe oversupply, while high-end varieties such as flat panel display and photovoltaic power generation still need to be imported The deep processing rate of domestic glass is less than 30%, significantly lower than the world average of 55%; Third, the industrial concentration is low The total production capacity of the top five glass groups accounts for only about 30% of the country The top four multinational glass groups in the world have more than 65% of the production capacity in the world (excluding China); Fourth, the elimination of backward production capacity has made slow progress In 2008, the output of ordinary flat glass (excluding calendering process) was still more than 70million heavy containers; Fifth, the international market demand for national integrated design shrank and exports fell sharply This month, the export volume of flat glass was 1.35 million tons, with an export amount of 410 million US dollars, a year-on-year decrease of 43.8%
the opinion points out that at present, China's glass industry is in a pivotal period of development, so it is necessary to be fully familiar with the seriousness of the current industry development situation, further share the same idea, pay more attention to structural adjustment and change the development mode in maintaining growth, and the injection molding process will be widely used due to the implementation of carbon fiber reinforced materials and advanced thermoplastics, and resolutely curb overcapacity and repeated construction, Guide the healthy and sustainable development of flat glass industry
