The hottest urbanization brings new opportunities

  • Detail

Urbanization has brought new opportunities to China's plastic industry

after the 18th CPC National Congress, urbanization has become the key content of economic system reform, and it is also one of the most concerned hot spots in the industrial economic community. According to the recent interview, many experts believe that in the next few years, with the development of China's urbanization construction, it will bring a market turnaround and create new development opportunities for China's plastics industry, which is in a continuous downturn

urbanization is the general trend.

according to Zhou Qiren, President of the National Development Research Institute of Peking University, in 2010, the urbanization rate of the world was 50.9%, the proportion of industry in GDP was 26%, and the global average urbanization/industrialization ratio was 1.95, while China was only 1.09. Until 2011, China's official 5. Working procedures and main work contents of environmental impact assessment released a set of statistical data. China's urbanization rate exceeded 50% for the first time, reaching 51.3%, but the urbanization/industrialization rate is still far below the global average

since this year, China Pingmei Shenma Group engineering plastics company has strengthened the whole process control and continuously improved the product quality by starting with raw material inspection, additive deployment monitoring, finished product analysis and testing, etc. the company's product excellence answer: the no washing waiting rate has been maintained at more than 98%, further improving the product market competitiveness

at the same time, Zhou Qiren pointed out that population agglomeration to cities is a global trend

it is understood that the urban population in the world accounts for half of the total population, and the urban area of residence is only 4million square kilometers, accounting for 1% of the earth's area. In addition, from the perspective of cities in foreign developed countries, the urbanization/industrialization ratio is high. In 2009, the total urban population of the United States was about 240million (accounting for 79% of the total population), living in cities accounting for 3% of the land area, producing 85% of GDP; New York accounts for about 7.5% of the population of the United States, creating 10.1% of GDP; Paris, France, accounts for about 18.7% of the French population and 28.3% of GDP; In Japan, the three metropolitan areas of Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya have concentrated 68.7% of the country's population and produced 73.6% of GDP. Among them, the greater Tokyo area accounts for only 4% of the land area, but it concentrates 25% of the population, creating more than 30% of GDP. In contrast, China's national economy is very fragmented in space. The combined GDP of Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen accounts for only about 13% of the national GDP

obviously, China still has a long way to go in the construction of urbanization. Zhou Qiren said that the biggest problem of China's economy now is not overcapacity, but lagging urbanization and advanced industrialization. Because our market capacity can't digest the huge manufacturing capacity, it leads to overcapacity. Not only the plastic industry, many industries in China are talking about overcapacity. Excess is only a relative concept. When we talk about overcapacity, we might as well turn around and think, what is scarce? What China lacks most now is the city

Zhou Qiren stressed that vigorously promoting urbanization and encouraging farmers to gather in cities can create cities, form huge market demand and resolve overcapacity. The problem that urbanization lags behind industrialization needs to be solved, in which there are opportunities and growth. Matching the pace of urbanization and industrialization is the next thing our government should do

China is still in a period of strategic opportunities for development. Although China's labor cost has increased a lot compared with that of 10 or 20 years ago, it still has a comparative advantage compared with developed countries in Europe and the United States, but it has increased from 1% to 1% of the original; Internally, we have a huge demand for urbanization and economic transformation. The key is how to release this potential. Zhou Qiren said

as for how China should promote urbanization construction, Zhou Qiren pointed out that urbanization construction does not mean building houses everywhere, nor does it mean that the government builds various projects, but to increase economic freedom and promote economic mobility, which inevitably involves many aspects of deep-seated reform

rigid demand drives the market

Su Chang, chief economist of Monita (Shanghai) Investment Development Co., Ltd., pointed out in an interview that China is still in the development stage of steadily improving the urbanization rate, and the overall rigid demand for plastics will drive the development of the industry

according to the investigation and prediction made by Monita, the urbanization construction in China will have a great impact on stimulating demand in the next 3-5 years. Urbanization will promote China's GDP in purchasing power parity to surpass that of the United States in the next few years; In the next five years, China's real estate will remain strong, and the average GDP growth rate is expected to remain at 7% - 8%

Su Chang believes that the pressure faced by China's manufacturing industry in recent years is actually the result of the superposition of the whole international and domestic environment, cyclical forces and structural forces. Now it is likely to be the moment when cyclical forces start to move up from the bottom. The 18th CPC National Congress clearly listed urbanization as one of the key contents of economic system reform, which means that the urbanization process will be further accelerated, so as to continue to promote the development of real estate, automobile and other industries in the market, and then stimulate the demand for plastic products

Su Chang pointed out that with the advancement of urbanization, China's real estate supply in the past few years is far from meeting the growth of market demand. In the next urbanization process, it is expected that the urbanization rate of the population aged 25 to 34 will increase steadily, which exactly constitutes the main body of the rigid demand for real estate. Therefore, China's overall real estate demand continues to remain relatively strong, which is extremely beneficial to the development of the plastic industry, including PVC

in addition, the development of urbanization will also greatly stimulate the automotive industry. It is expected that China's automotive demand will maintain a relatively stable trend in the next five years, maintaining a growth rate of 10%. This is also a major positive for the plastic industry. According to Su Chang, the proportion of plastic materials in China's automotive industry is much lower than that in Germany. Now many multinational companies, such as BASF, are very optimistic about China's automotive plastic market

in addition, the demand of household appliances and other industries will also be further increased in the process of urbanization, and will bring a broader market to the plastic industry. It is worth mentioning that with the promotion of urbanization and the further improvement of people's living standards, China's plastic industry will usher in some new changes and expand some new fields. New plastic products with high technological content, high quality and high added value are constantly emerging. The plastic industry is developing towards a lighter, more energy-saving and more environmentally friendly direction, driving the market demand to further rise

5. hang the pendulum of the impact testing machine on the release device, and the prospect of plastic building materials is particularly promising.

urbanization has brought opportunities to many application fields of the plastic industry, among which the most direct and promising is the field of plastic building materials

some industry experts said in an interview that with the continuous acceleration of China's urbanization process, the demand for plastic building materials for municipal and construction has increased sharply. Especially under the guidance of the economic development mode of energy conservation and emission reduction and strengthening innovation, the solar diaphragm, new plastic doors and windows with good heat insulation and sealing performance, as well as the newly developed polymer building templates, external wall supports, plastic reinforced bricks and building heating plastic pipes have broad prospects. In addition, people's requirements for housing are also increasing. In addition to pursuing comfort, high cost performance, convenient maintenance and durability, they also pay attention to fashionable decoration and environmental protection elements, which greatly promotes the demand for green building materials

it is predicted that during the 12th Five Year Plan period, the scale of China's green building market may exceed 100million yuan, which will effectively drive the development of new plastic building materials industry. In terms of promoting the development of green buildings, China's goal is that by 2020, green buildings will account for more than 30% of new buildings, and the energy and resource consumption in the process of building construction and use will be close to or reach the level of developed countries at this stage, striving to achieve an area of green buildings of more than 1billion square meters

plastic building materials are widely used in construction engineering, municipal engineering and industrial construction. At present, the popular plastic building materials include various plastic plates, plastic pipes, plastic profiles, plastic doors and windows, and wrong connectors, which may cause damage to the equipment; Polymer waterproof materials, thermal insulation and sound insulation materials, decoration materials, etc., all of which have the advantages of energy conservation and environmental protection, can improve building function and quality, can reduce building self weight, convenient construction, and low comprehensive engineering cost. An industry expert told me

it is worth noting that the construction of municipal administration, as an important link in the process of urbanization, has brought bright prospects to the plastic pipe industry

it is understood that in recent years, due to the obvious advantages of plastic pipes in energy saving, land saving, water saving and material saving, China's plastic pipe industry has developed at a high speed driven by the rapid development of China's macro-economy. It is estimated that the total production of plastic pipes in China will be about 13.2 million tons by 2015

in addition, plastic pipes have obvious advantages in the renewal and replacement of old pipes in cities and towns, and have also become another economic growth point for the development of the industry. It is understood that as early as 1995, the water supply, heating, drainage and sewage pipes laid in most cities and towns in China were mainly gray cast iron pipes, ductile iron pipes and cement pipes. However, this kind of pipeline material has the disadvantages of poor impact and corrosion resistance. At present, aging and corrosion are serious, and the pipe damage is increasing year by year. Therefore, it is imperative to update the pipe. Compared with traditional steel pipes, cast iron pipes, concrete pipes and other pipes, plastic pipes have obvious substitution advantages, making them another important growth point of the industry

according to relevant statistics, at present, there are at least 240000 kilometers of gray cast iron pipelines with poor materials in China. The transformation of old pipes in cities and towns will bring huge space for the development of plastic pipes. At the same time, urbanization will inevitably increase investment in natural gas pipelines, urban drainage systems and other pipelines. Therefore, plastic pipes have a huge application space in the construction of municipal pipes, and face a rare development opportunity
