The trend of the building materials industry this year can be described as a mixture of joys and sorrows. The good news is that the growth rate of traditional building materials products has relatively slowed down, while the development of high-tech, high-value-added new building materials such as cement products, technical glass, and lightweight building materials has maintained a strong rise. There are positive signals for structural adjustment. Worry is the traditional building materials products cement, glass and other sub-industry overcapacity serious, the urgent need to curb. Under the superposition of dual factors, the trend of my country's building materials industry in the first half of this year was better than expected at the beginning of the year, but overcapacity and declining benefits still plague the traditional building materials products that account for an absolute proportion.

The trend of the building materials industry this year can be described as a mixture of joys and sorrows. The good news is that the growth rate of traditional building materials products has relatively slowed down, while the development of high-tech, high-value-added new building materials such as cement products, technical glass, and lightweight building materials has maintained a strong rise. There are positive signals for structural adjustment. Worry is the traditional building materials products cement, glass and other sub-industry overcapacity serious, urgent need to curb.

Under the superposition of dual factors, the trend of my country's building materials industry in the first half of this year was better than expected at the beginning of the year, but overcapacity and declining benefits still plague the traditional building materials products that account for an absolute proportion. The building materials industry is in urgent need of green transformation.

15% growth is guaranteed

In the face of the sharp decline in the production growth rate of the building materials industry last year, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology issued an analysis report at the beginning of this year, pointing out that the building materials industry will strive to transform and upgrade traditional industries, cultivate and strengthen the industry of new inorganic non-metallic materials, and vigorously develop producer services. The building materials industry will continue to maintain a steady and rapid development momentum, and the industrial added value this year is expected to increase by 12% year-on-year.

The first half of 2013 has passed, and the trend of the building materials industry has revealed some positive signals.

Although the growth rate of traditional building materials products cement, flat glass, and ceramics has relatively slowed down, sub-industries such as concrete, cement products, technical glass, and lightweight building materials have maintained a strong growth trend, with a year-on-year increase of 30%, and the industrial added value of the building materials industry has increased year-on-year. Higher than expected at the beginning of this year.

At the same time, while the export volume of building sanitary ceramics, building stone, granite stone carvings, glass fiber and products increased slightly, the price of products rose by more than 20%, and the industrial structure was further adjusted.

According to the analysis of industry experts, China is currently in an important stage of industrialization and urbanization, economic transformation and upgrading is in a critical period, and there is great potential and space for development. According to the data of the National Bureau of statistics, since this year, the national investment in fixed assets has maintained a growth rate of more than 20%, especially the investment in the secondary industry and the central and western regions, which play an obvious role in promoting building materials, has maintained rapid growth.

Maintain a reasonable scale of investment, strengthen the construction of urban roads, rail transit, environmental protection infrastructure and other aspects are actively promoted, and effective domestic demand is gradually released. This will increase the demand for building materials products to a certain extent, and the building materials industry is expected to gain business opportunities.

Experts predict that the building materials industry is still in a good period of development opportunities. Although there will be no substantial growth, the overall development is good, and it is expected to enter a new stage of development with stable speed and improved efficiency. It is estimated that the operating environment of building materials industry in 2013 is relatively better than that in 2012, and the market demand is expected to increase. This year, the building materials industry above designated size will still maintain a growth rate of about 15%, but the growth rate of the traditional building materials industry will be lower than the average industrial growth rate and will face greater downward pressure; the concrete and cement products industry, the construction stone processing industry, and the lightweight building materials industry will maintain a rapid growth rate of more than 20%.

Excess capacity intensifies

Although the trend in the first half of the year is not satisfactory, "the problem of overcapacity in the building materials industry is still worrying, and the key issues of transformation and upgrading have not yet been broken through." China Building Materials Federation President Qiao Longde said.

Traditional building materials, cement, glass and building sanitary ceramics are in total excess and serious overcapacity, and the new production capacity has not really been curbed. After 94 new production lines were added to cement in 2012, 16 new production lines were added in 2013. Float glass still has 16 production lines under construction. "Overcapacity has become the biggest harm to the structural adjustment of the industry and the economic operation." Jornon is outspoken.

The heavy pressure of production capacity makes the benefit level of traditional building materials continue to decline, especially cement, glass, building sanitary ceramics, showing that "increment does not increase income, increase income does not increase profits". Take cement as an example. In the first quarter, product output increased by 8.2 compared with the same period last year, and sales revenue increased by 6% compared with the same period last year, but total profits fell by 52%. The output and sales revenue of flat glass increased slightly, but if the technical glass is not included, it is still a loss for the whole industry.

According to expert analysis, the contradiction between effective demand slowdown and overcapacity interacts, and the situation of oversupply will not change in the short term; product homogeneity competition is still fierce, and vicious competition among enterprises has not been effectively resolved, and the establishment of a fair competition order needs to be further Deepen the reform.

Urgent need for green transformation

In order to control the "entrance" of overcapacity, since last year, the China Building Materials Federation has issued more than 20 warnings to some regions and cement companies for new production capacity.

Control the "entrance" at the same time, but also broaden the "exit". This year, China's strong promotion of green building and green building materials market provides great potential for the transformation and upgrading of traditional building materials market.

After the State Council forwarded the "Green Building Action Plan" on January 11 this year, the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development issued a document on January 16 to refine the promotion of green buildings. Experts predict that by 2020, my country's investment in energy-saving building projects may reach 1.5 trillion billion yuan in market space, of which the green building materials market has at least several hundred billion yuan in market space.

Building materials analysts said that consumers are now very concerned about green building materials. Green building materials undoubtedly have a very broad market prospect, and the country's tightening of macro policies in industries such as high energy consumption and high emissions will further promote the development of green building materials.

At present, the market research results carried out by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology show that vigorously developing green building materials can not only promote building energy conservation, but also benefit energy conservation and emission reduction in the industrial field, and at the same time make housing safe and environmentally friendly. The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology stated that it will give priority to the development of green building materials required for green buildings, accelerate the formulation of green certification methods and standards; gradually compile a list of green building materials products, encourage and guide the development of green building materials to support green building construction; accelerate the revision of existing ones that hinder the development of green building materials Norms and standards guide the development of green building materials with advanced norms and standards.

Recently, the China Building Materials Federation issued the "2030 China Building Materials Industry" Innovation and Promotion, Beyond Leading "Development Strategy" (hereinafter referred to as the "Strategy"), which clearly put forward the strategic ideas and goals for the development of my country's building materials industry from 2010 to 2030. Strategic tasks and approaches, strategic priorities and measures will point out the direction for the development of China's building materials industry in the next 20 years.

The ''Strategy'' shows that my country's demand for traditional building materials products will continue for 10 years, and there will be a real demand turning point around 2020. The next 10 years will be a critical period for the transformation, upgrading and structural adjustment of the building materials industry. Emerging industries and advantageous enterprises will become the focus of the development and structural adjustment of the building materials industry, and green development will become the theme pursued by the industry, in the future, the building materials industry will move closer to green in terms of concept, policy and technology.
