Future demand and consumption structure of flat glass

domestic demand for flat glass mainly comes from the manufacturing and export of architectural glass, automotive glass, solar glass, electronics, household appliances, etc., of which the demand for architectural glass accounts for more than 70% of the total demand for flat glass. With the continuous improvement of China's urbanization rate, the demand for flat glass in the construction market will continue to grow in the future. In addition, the rapid development of new energy, electronic technology and other industries will also drive the consumption of flat glass. The consumption market prospect of flat glass in the future is very broad

1 architectural glass

architectural glass accounts for about 70% of flat glass consumption, and is the main downstream demand for flat glass. Compared with other exterior wall materials, glass has the advantages of beauty, economy and light weight, so it is widely used in the real estate construction market. In the past 20 years, a large number of glass curtain wall buildings have appeared in China, and the annual output of curtain walls in China has exceeded that of developed countries in Europe, accounting for more than 90% of the total amount of glass curtain walls in the world

in 2011, China's urbanization rate exceeded 50% for the first time, reaching 51.27%. It is expected that China's urbanization rate will reach about 60% by 2020. However, compared with Japan, South Korea and other Asian developed countries, China's urbanization rate still has great room for improvement. The increase of urbanization rate means a lot of construction demand, which drives the development of building materials industries such as flat glass. It is estimated that every one percentage point increase in the urbanization rate will add nearly 500million square meters of urban housing demand. From this point of view, by 2020, the domestic urban residential area will still have nearly 4.5 billion square meters of growth space. In addition, as the state pays more attention to energy conservation and environmental protection, some of the built glass curtain walls need to be updated. New energy-saving glass such as Low-E glass will replace the traditional exterior wall glass, and the transformation of glass curtain walls will become a new highlight of building glass consumption

therefore, the building glass market will still become the largest consumption field of flat glass in the future

2 auto glass

in recent years, the domestic auto market has developed rapidly, and the auto production and sales have shown a steady growth trend. In 2011, China produced 18.4189 million vehicles in total, with a year-on-year increase of 0.8%, and sold 18.5051 million vehicles, with a year-on-year increase of 2.5%. It is expected that the national automobile sales will reach 20million by the end of 2012. With the development of automotive industry, automotive glass has also become one of the most important consumption areas of flat glass, accounting for about 10% of the total. The main automobile glass manufacturers in China include Fuyao Glass and Xinyi Glass

in China, automotive products are still in the stage of popularization and introduction. The reasonable growth rate of automobile production and sales should be that of GDP 5 times. Considering the population base, per capita roads, automobile culture and the slowdown of economic growth, the conventional growth rate of China's automobile market should be about 10%. At present, the proportion of people to cars in the world is 7:1, while the proportion of people to cars in China is only about half of the world average. There is still huge room for improvement in China's car ownership. It is estimated that China's new car market will reach 40million by 2018. The production of new cars and the maintenance of existing cars will increase the demand for packaging and manufacturing automotive glass

3 export market

export, architectural glass and automotive glass are the "troika" driving the consumption of flat glass. China is one of the largest flat glass exporters in the world, and its main export objects are emerging markets such as India and Russia.

In 2011, China exported 2.04 million tons of flat glass (equivalent to 40.08 million heavy boxes), an increase of 11.64% compared with the same period in 2010, and the cumulative export volume reached 750million US dollars, Year on year growth of 15.1%. Among them, the cumulative export of float glass was 1.712 million tons, with a year-on-year increase of 19.6 to measure the toughness or fracture resistance of high molecular materials under high-speed impact, accounting for 85.4% of the total export volume. At present, the competition between China's glass industry and foreign glass enterprises is mainly to compete for high value-added glass product markets at home and abroad. China's glass industry is in an important period of transformation from large to strong

due to the continuous expansion of China's flat glass exports in recent years, the trade barriers faced by exports are also gradually increasing, further worsening the export market environment. In March last year, South Korea announced that it would extend the anti-dumping measures imposed on Chinese float glass for three years and continue to impose import tariffs of 12.04% to 36.01%; Brazil held another hearing on the anti-dumping case of colorless flat glass imported from China in August last year after it launched an anti-dumping investigation on colorless flat glass with a thickness of 2mm to 19mm in July 2010. As the flat glass exported by China is mainly medium and low-end products, it has no advantage in technology and can only rely on price to win, the trade protection of importing countries is bound to weaken the competitiveness of China's flat glass and impact the export market.
