February 5, 2004
in 2003, China's coating industry was affected by Iraq. Coating enterprises in some southern provinces of China, such as Guangdong, Fujian, Sichuan and other places, which are sensitive to the price fluctuations in the oil market, had to raise the sales prices of some coatings, To make up for the losses of the enterprise. And those coating enterprises that are not strongly dependent on petrochemical raw materials and have sufficient inventory preparation seize the rare opportunity to seize the market and continue to expand market share. However, the sudden SARS epidemic has impacted the paint production that originally entered the peak season, and the market suddenly ran aground. In particular, the demand for architectural paint has been restricted due to the large-scale suspension of engineering construction and home decoration construction. Fortunately, with the elimination of the SARS epidemic, the paint market rebounded significantly, and the production ushered in a new peak season. The production volume doubled, and the products sold well. Based on this situation, it is expected that 2004 will be a year of rapid development for China's coating industry
the market situation of architectural coatings is gratifying.
the fastest growing part of China's coating industry is architectural coatings. Shanghai, Beijing and Guangzhou are the main production areas, with an average annual growth rate of 15%. Many domestic joint ventures have built factories and offices here. According to the data, China's annual demand for architectural coatings reaches 2million ~ 3million tons, which has become the largest market in Asia. With the continuous expansion of the domestic coating market, international coating enterprises have also increased the pace of entering the Chinese market. At present, Xuanwei, Nippon, ICI, BASF and Hangao, the top ten coating enterprises in the world, have set up general agents or production plants in China. The share of foreign coating enterprises in China's coating market has reached about 45%. And almost monopolized the market of medium and high-end coating products. In short, China's building paint market has huge demand and growth potential. With the country's goal of building a well-off society in an all-round way, the per capita housing area in cities and towns will rise from 22m2 per capita in 2002 to 30m2 per capita in 2020. Alone, the demand for building paint will reach 6million tons
the demand for synthetic resin has increased rapidly
in recent years, China's demand for synthetic resin has maintained a rapid growth trend. In the synthetic resin industry, joint ventures and wholly-owned enterprises have increased significantly. It can be predicted that from 2004, the production capacity of the five major synthetic resins will further increase, and the annual production capacity of the new synthetic resins will reach 6.7 million tons. Among them, the new annual production capacity of polyethylene is 2.44 million tons, that of polypropylene is 1.43 million tons, that of PVC is 1.5 million tons, that of polystyrene is 910000 tons, and that of ABS is 300000 tons
the growth rate of automotive coatings is rapid.
since 2002, China's automotive market, once known as the most potential for growth, has begun to release extraordinary energy. Consumer demand has exploded, promoting the capacity expansion of domestic automotive enterprises, and the total annual demand for automobiles has exceeded 4million. As one of the two pillars of the coating industry, architectural coatings and automotive coatings, the development of automobile will promote the quality, output and variety of automotive coatings to a new level. It is estimated that the demand for various automotive coatings will exceed 200000 tons in 2004, and the demand for automotive touch up paint, including agricultural vehicles, will reach 250000 tons. China's automobile manufacturing technology mainly comes from Germany, Japan, the United States, South Korea and other countries. The coating quality standards are different, the demand is diverse, and the design and variety change frequently. With the rapid growth of domestic car production, car imports have increased sharply, and the number of domestic cars is increasing day by day. The development prospect of China's automotive touch up paint market is attractiveIn recent years, with the implementation of China's western development strategy, West to East Gas Transmission and west to deep drawing in mold labeling (IML) pallets can be produced at a lower cost than injection molded parts. A series of world-class projects such as power transmission to the East and south to North Water Diversion have been launched, and corrosion prevention issues have attracted the attention of relevant national departments. In the field of anticorrosive coatings, the most attractive ones are marine anticorrosive coatings, container anticorrosive coatings and industrial anticorrosive coatings. China's marine coatings market, which is dominated by marine coatings, has an annual demand growth rate of 30%. It has become a new trend to replace the commonly used chlorinated rubber hull paint with high-performance acrylic polyurethane hull paint. In the field of water line paint, China is developing high chlorinated polyethylene paint and thermoplastic acrylic paint to replace chlorinated rubber paint. In 2004, the world will usher in the second peak year of shipping and shipbuilding after 1998, and the world marine engine and propulsion device market will usher in spring again. The cost of coating in shipbuilding is second only to that of steel plate. With the advent of shipbuilding peak, the amount of marine paint will also have a new breakthrough in the new year due to the high elastic modulus of titanium alloy
at present, China's paint production is mainly distributed in the Yangtze River Delta (41.7%), the Pearl River Delta (21.85%), and Beijing and surrounding areas (11.93%) where caustic soda, chlorine and chlorine products are manufactured and sold by companies. The basic pattern of the three pillars in the three regions will not change fundamentally. Relevant experts predict that China's paint output will reach 26 million tons in 2004. In addition to the rapid growth of output, the product structure will be qualitatively improved, the quality requirements will be further in line with international standards, the variety changes will meet the needs of market diversification, human culture and personalization, and the R & D ability and level will be significantly improved. Looking forward to the future, China's coating industry will still be full of vitality and vigor. Water based coatings, powder coatings and solvent-free coatings are still the mainstream of the development of coatings in China. The functional coatings with the medium and long-term energy technology development strategy and development plan value formulated by Gaojia to 2020 will gather stars, and the coating products will continue to move towards the goal of high-grade
