China's ink import and export market

with the sustained and stable development of China's national economy and the great progress of China's printing industry, China's ink and related industries have entered a new period of development opportunities. At present, China has more than 300 professional ink production enterprises with more than 20000 employees. China's annual comprehensive ink production capacity is second only to the top three in the world. The United States, Japan and Germany rank fourth in the world. This paper will analyze the ink import and export market in China in 2005

according to the customs data, China's total import of printing ink in 2005 was 47000 tons, a year-on-year increase of 2.6%, accounting for 14.7% of China's total consumption of printing ink that year. The average unit price of import was 7923 dollars/ton. In the same year, China's total export of printing ink was 24000 tons, a year-on-year increase of 52.6%, accounting for 8.0% of China's total production of printing ink that year. The average export unit price was US $4351/ton. In view of the high-speed, sustained and stable development of China's national economy in 2005 and the prosperity of the publishing and printing industry market, the demand for printing ink in the domestic market has increased significantly. Although the total ink production in China in 2005 increased by 10% year-on-year, there is still a large gap between market supply and demand, especially for high-end products and special inks

In 2005, the top five countries and regions in China's export of other printing inks were: Hong Kong SAR 90000 tons, accounting for 43.5% of China's total export of other printing inks that year, Japan 3100 tons, accounting for 14.8%, Pakistan 1500 tons, accounting for 7.0%, Vietnam 12000 tons, accounting for 5.9%, and Taiwan 0600 tons, accounting for 3.0%.

The varieties of imported inks in China are mainly high-grade and special-purpose products with low domestic output, short supply in the market, or blank in China. In 2005, the international market of China's ink imports was mainly Asia and Europe, and the ink imports from these two continents accounted for 94.0% of China's total ink imports that year; The international market for exports is mainly distributed in Asia, accounting for 88.6%, followed by Africa, accounting for 5.8%. The quality level of domestic ink has not only been recognized by developing countries, but also by developed countries. In 2005, the total volume of printing ink exported to Japan, the United States, Germany, Britain, France and other developed countries was 3600 tons, accounting for 15.0% of the total volume of printing ink exported out of the instrument panel (interior trim panel): the use of low odor TPO lining skin and modified PP materials to control the odor were mainly in the process link. Although the quality level and product grade of domestic inks have been greatly improved, and the varieties have also increased, there is still a big gap compared with the international advanced level. This can be seen from the ink trade between China and Japan, the United States, Germany, Britain, France and other countries. The average export unit price of China is about 1/3 of the average import unit price. In the future, in addition to increasing the output, domestic inks should pay more attention to improving the scientific and technological content of products, increasing varieties, improving grades and improving quality, so as to make them meet the needs of modern printing with multi-color, high-speed, fast drying, no pollution and low consumption
