Analysis on the import and export of the glass fiber industry in China in 2017

In 2017, when the prospect of international economic recovery was unknown, the glass fiber industry was facing a difficult situation and achieved steady growth through the joint efforts of the whole industry. In 2014, the glass fiber industry was running well and the economic benefits continued to improve. According to the data published by the Ministry of raw materials industry of the Ministry of industry and information, the profit growth of glass fiber enterprises is higher than 12%. Glass fiber industry completed the main business income of 150 billion 900 million yuan, a year-on-year increase of 13.4%. In terms of import and export, the total amount of glass fiber and its products into foreign trade was $3 billion 255 million, an increase of 10.6% over the same period. Among them, exports were 1 million 418 thousand tons, up 15.65% from the same period, the export amount of $2 billion 256 million, a year-on-year increase of 13.61%, and imports of 999 million US dollars, with a year-on-year increase of 4.37%. The trade surplus of the whole industry is $1 billion 257 million.

First, the general situation of the import and export of glass fiber and products

(I) the number and amount of exports have been growing, and the downward trend of 2016 has been reversed strongly. In 2017, the export amount of glass fiber and its products increased by 13.61%, higher than the national growth rate of 7.5 percentage points, reversing the trend of continuing decline in 2013. In addition to the decline in the export volume of a small number of varieties, such as glass fiber filament fabric and glass fiber, most varieties have different degrees of growth. Among them, the glass fiber roving exports 649 thousand tons, an increase of 19.38%, the export amount of $616 million, an increase of 21.13%; short cut glass fiber exports 152 thousand tons, an increase of 27.1%, the export amount of $160 million, an increase of 25.01%; the other glass fiber exports 52 thousand and 800 tons, an increase of 20.41%, exports amounted to US $110 million, up 48.27%. The export quantity and amount of glass cotton and its products were increased by 52.15% and 85.43% respectively.

(two) the import showed a trend of differentiation. In 2014, the increase in the size and amount of imports of glass fiber and its products continued to expand over the past year. The imports of glass fiber, plain glass fabric, glass fiber, roving fabric and glass fiber decreased slightly, and the number and amount of glass fiber mat were 23.98% and 20.08% respectively. In addition, the import of other varieties showed an upward trend. Among them, the glass fiber roving was imported 30 thousand and 600 tons, up 51.47%, and the import amount was 27 million 112 thousand and 300 dollars, up 66.9%. The import of short cut glass fiber was 78 thousand and 400 tons, up 6.76%, and the import amount was 122 million dollars, up 9.42%. The import of glass cotton and its products was 2 thousand and 200 tons, up 7.23%, and the import amount was 11 million 240 thousand and 500 US dollars, up 21.01%. The import data from the side shows that the demand for China's glass fiber market is still growing, but the market has a trend of differentiation. The growth of glass fiber roving is the most significant, which continues the strong trend of growth since 2013. Part of the reason is that foreign roving attempts to encroach on our domestic market at a low price, with an average import price of $885.58 / tonne, less than the export average of $62.93 / ton. In addition, domestic composite enterprises need a large number of high quality glass fiber roving for production, and also pushed up the increase of import.

(three) the stable development of bilateral trade with the major trading partners. In terms of export amount, the US, South Korea, Japan, India and Vietnam have made steady growth in exports of China's top five export destinations for glass fiber and its products. Among them, I had an eye on US exports, exports 267 thousand and 500 tons, an increase of 45.42%, the export amount of $363 million, an increase of 38.15%. I exported 137 thousand and 300 tons of glass fiber and its products to Korea, up 33.44%, the export amount of $214 million, an increase of 18.74%. In terms of the amount of imports, Taiwan, Japan, the United States, Malaysia and Belgium are the five largest importing sources of glass fiber and its products in China. In addition to a small decline in imports from Japan, the import of the other four trading partners has increased to varying degrees. Among them, I have imported 115 thousand and 900 tons from Taiwan, reducing 2.71%, but the import amount increased by 0.47% to $320 million. I import 21 thousand and 400 tons from the United States, increase 29.7%, import $144 million, an increase of 21.58%.

(four) the industry export has the agglomeration effect. From the export provinces and cities, Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Shandong, Chongqing and Guangdong are the top five regions for the export of glass fiber and its products in China. Jushi Group Co. Ltd., Chongqing Polycomp International Corporation, Taishan Glass Fiber Co., Ltd., Jiujiang Stonehenge group Tongxiang Heng stone Fiber Co. Ltd., Changzhou Jiye Changhai Fiberglass Products Co. Ltd., Taishan Zoucheng Glass Fiber Co. Ltd., Jiangsu Jiuding new materials Limited by Share Ltd, Guangdong Shengyi Polytron Technologies Inc, Zibo Sinoma Jin Jing Glass Co., Ltd. pangbeijie ten leading enterprises, the proportion of exports accounted for 44.15% of the country, indicating that the glass fiber and its products export industry agglomeration high. In this agglomeration effect, Zhejiang Province, Tongxiang city and Chongqing Dadukou District of glass fiber base has been assessed for upgrading demonstration base of national professional type transformation.
