Glass industry: short-term fine adjustment will not hinder the long-term price rise

this year's glass prices vary from place to place. According to the statistics in May, the price of float glass in large and medium-sized cities across the country varies greatly. The price of float glass in Qingdao, Shandong is 34 yuan higher than that in Wuhai, Inner Mongolia. Statistics also show that the average price of flat glass fell slightly from April to May this year, and the output of float glass in Jiangsu and Guangdong provinces, which are major producers of float glass in China, has also decreased for two consecutive months. When the oil temperature exceeds 60 ℃, the cooling system must be turned on. Glass prices seem to have experienced partial or periodic "low temperatures"

however, in June, the signs of glass price recovery have begun to appear. More importantly, the factors supporting the return of glass prices to rational prices are also being recognized by the market and consumers

first, a huge market for post earthquake reconstruction in Sichuan is taking shape. As we all know, building materials should be the first in post disaster reconstruction. In the post earthquake reconstruction of Sichuan, cement, glass, wall materials, steel, sand and other important basic building materials are indispensable and irreplaceable. Although post disaster reconstruction is a local market relative to the national market, the blowout demand in this market can play a role in restoring the consumer confidence of the overall market and stimulating greater consumer demand

secondly, the demand for energy-saving glass in the energy-saving building market is expanding. On April 1st, 2008, the energy conservation law was fully implemented. Building energy conservation, as an important promotion object of the energy conservation law, has attracted much attention. Energy saving glass represented by Low-E glass and insulating glass will become the highlight of the industry in the next few years. With the 2008 Olympic Games and the 2010 WorldExpo held in China, the demand for energy-saving glass will increase with the construction of a large number of venues and related buildings

in 2008, other uses of processed glass will also be continuously developed and extended. It mainly includes furniture industry, decoration industry, electronic information industry and solar energy industry. The consumption upgrading and the growing industrial characteristics determine that the growth of glass consumption in these fields will be faster than that in the construction and automobile fields. Under the influence of the high-speed growth of the electronic/electrical appliance industry, continuous product innovation and the continuous improvement of personal income, the electronic/electrical appliance glass market will expand rapidly at a faster average annual growth rate by 2011

the market demand for automotive glass will also be considerable driven by the rapid development of the automotive industry. Deep processed glass includes insulating glass, tempered glass, laminated glass, mirrors and other special glass products. The market demand for deep processed glass will increase by 12% annually. The growth rate of 5% will comprehensively surpass the growth rate of the whole flat glass industry. The construction industry will still be the largest consumer market for flat glass products, accounting for 87% by 2011. In 2010, one third of the new buildings in China will achieve the goal of 50% energy saving; By 2020, all new buildings in China will achieve the goal of 65% energy saving. According to the target of 2010, about 3billion square meters of energy-saving building area and 600million square meters of energy-saving glass will be added in the next few years

the third is the price increase factor of transmission cost. The most important raw materials for making glass are sand and soda ash. Generally speaking, the energy is heavy oil. According to the latest procurement data of glass enterprises, in the Pearl River Delta, the price of soda ash has risen from 1500 yuan/ton in the same period last year to 2200 ~2400 yuan/ton at present, with an increase of more than 50%. The price of heavy oil has also reached 4500 yuan/ton, a year-on-year increase of more than 30%. The sensor is placed on the flexible rope, and the costs such as sand price, transportation price and labor wage are composed. Because the fracture of the sample is often the increase of the fracture elements on both sides, by the leading quarter of 2008, the cost per weight box of glass has increased by 20%~30%. According to the law of market value, it is an inevitable trend for the factors of rising cost rigidity to transmit to the reasonable price

fourth, the accelerated pace of eliminating backward glass production capacity is also optimizing the environment for forming a healthy glass price. The year 2008 is a year for China to eliminate backward glass production capacity and speed up. From the perspective of the structural adjustment of the glass industry, high-quality float glass and deep-processing glass have been identified as the focus of the industry development. The restriction on ordinary float glass and the elimination of backward flat drawing process (including lattice method) have also permanently eliminated the backward glass production capacity of more than 30 million weight boxes this year

market integration, cost promotion, consumption transformation and upgrading all determine the long-term upward trend of glass prices
