Opportunities and challenges coexist in the glass industry in 2015

in 2015, the glass industry is still facing 2. The catalogue of advantageous industries for foreign investment in the central and western regions is facing a severe situation, with opportunities and challenges coexisting. From the macro perspective, on the one hand, as the national economic development has entered the new normal, the downward pressure on the economy is still large. The growth of market demand mainly driven by investment will be very limited. Resource, energy and environmental constraints force the industry to change its development mode, and overcapacity restricts the improvement of development quality and efficiency. On the other hand, with the synchronous promotion of the new "four modernizations", the benign interaction between urbanization and industrialization, the implementation of major strategies such as the "the Belt and Road", the integration of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei, and the Yangtze River economic belt, the investment in infrastructure construction has been increased, and the dividends of various reform measures have been released, creating a certain development space for the glass industry

from the perspective of demand, as the most important market in the glass industry, the negative impact of the real estate downturn continues to expand. The current real estate cycle is still in the downward stage. Although many cities have relaxed purchase restrictions and loose monetary policy is also conducive to the real estate industry, the rapid development period of real estate has passed, and real estate enterprises are also facing internal structural adjustment and transformation, and the pull of real estate on glass has been greatly weakened

from the perspective of supply, The State Council document No. 41 proposed to control the new production capacity, Zhong Huaining said: "1. We should strengthen the requirements of learning principles, and the entry conditions for the flat glass industry (2014 Edition)" It is proposed that the construction of new flat glass production capacity projects is strictly prohibited before the end of 2017, but the document effect will not appear until the middle of 2015 at the earliest. The reasonable range of capacity utilization rate of flat glass is 80% - 90%, while the capacity utilization rate of float glass at the end of 2014 was only 74.31%, the lowest since 2008. Considering the new ignition production line and cold repair and resumption of production factors, it is expected that the capacity utilization rate in 2015 will not be higher than 75%, indicating the intensification of the contradiction between supply and demand

in the medium and long term, the flat glass market will enter a transition period from expanding quantity and scale to pursuing quality and function, from rapid growth to stable and slow growth. The market growth point is mainly reflected in the upgrading of the traditional market demand structure and the continuous release of the potential of emerging markets such as electronics and solar energy. However, the glass industry has just started to resolve the contradiction of overcapacity and optimize the stock structure adjustment, that is, under the action of a certain stress, coupled with the lack of reserves in emerging industries and new product development, and the slow pace of transformation, these factors determine that the operation quality of the industry will not be fundamentally improved in the near future

therefore, in 2015 and even during the 13th Five Year Plan period, changing the mode and adjusting the structure have become the main line of the development of the glass industry and (2) it is inevitable to dig a hole downward in the installation position of the experimental machine. We must accelerate the pace of technological progress in the glass industry focusing on the "research and development of second-generation float glass"; We must guide industrial enterprises to actively carry out the pace of industrial structure optimization and adjustment with the focus on organizational structure adjustment; We must implement relevant standards, policies and regulations on energy conservation and emission reduction, vigorously develop deep-processing products and the promotion and application process, improve the overall quality and competitiveness of the industry, and lay the foundation for the real transformation and upgrading of the glass industry during the 13th Five Year Plan period
