Pipe - domestic plastic hose Market Development

in terms of the growth rate and application of market demand, one of the prominent characteristics of the current plastic hose Market is that consumption has entered a mature period, especially in the International Europe and the United States. In recent years, the growth rate of market demand has slowed significantly. As a plastic product developed earlier, the domestic production of plastic hoses has reached a certain scale, and there are many varieties of market applications. However, due to various reasons, in recent years, domestic enterprises pay more attention to polymer rigid pipes used in the construction field, and the investment is too concentrated, such as PVC rigid pipes and other projects, while there are few projects of polyethylene hoses with mature product technology and market application

(I) analysis of hot varieties in the plastic hose Market

due to the advantages of corrosion resistance, scale resistance, non leakage, long service life and so on, the application volume and application fields are growing rapidly. At present, the market of plastic hoses at home and abroad is mainly divided into four application fields: daily consumption and health care, hydraulic transmission system in industry, automobile and hydraulic engineering. Among them, the market demand in the field of daily consumption and health care is the largest, and in terms of market growth rate, it ranks first in the total market share of plastic hose, with an average annual market growth rate of 2.9% until 2002

at present, the varieties with large market consumption in the field of health care are mainly PVC medical tubes, which is also the most stable field of PVC resin in plastic hoses. The second largest variety of market demand is all kinds of plastic hoses for industrial use, such as air. In addition, there are a wide variety of experimental attachment tubes and chemical industry. She said: so many bags of industrial tubes and hydraulic transmission system tubes are used every time when buying vegetables. Among them, the soft performance pipes for industrial use have an average annual market growth rate of 2.5%. The average annual market growth rate of plastic hoses used in the automotive and aviation fields, such as cooling pipes and fuel pipes, was 2.7% until 2002, and the sales increased from 84 million pounds in 1997 to 96 million pounds. As the main market share of thermosetting plastic pipes, water conservancy transmission hoses had an average annual market growth rate of 2% by 2002

as far as the varieties of plastic hoses are concerned, the polyethylene market is currently growing the fastest and is becoming the second largest variety of plastic hoses. The main reasons for the rapid growth are: Polyethylene hoses are very flexible, and the breaking elongation rate is generally more than 500%. They can be used as long coils, and have excellent construction adaptability, which brings great convenience to pipeline construction. At the same time, market applications have been rapidly expanded, And become a strong competitor of PVC. In particular, the emergence of high-performance polyethylene resin in recent years has given polyethylene hoses stronger market competitiveness

(II) the focus of competition in the plastic hose Market: use the competition between new and old materials to compete for market share

as the market demand for plastic hoses has entered a state of steady growth, but at the same time, the production capacity is increasing rapidly, and the production supply of some varieties is greater than the market demand. Due to the rise in the price of crude oil, the cost of raw materials is rising, and the profit space of products is becoming smaller. Facing the fierce market competition, plastic hose manufacturers have to maintain their market quota through technology and development of new products

as a result, the competition between new and old materials in the plastic hose Market is still very fierce, which makes the development of new products very active, and new varieties emerge in endlessly. For example, in the past, the main materials used in the plastic hose Market are PVC resin and rubber materials. With the development of plastic technology and processing equipment samples stretching to a certain position, polyethylene, thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) such as thermoplastic polyurethane (TPUs) As a new generation of materials, thermoplastic polyolefins (Tpos) and thermoplastic alloy materials (TPVs) appear in the plastic hose Market in large numbers. These new materials have better processability and show good substitutability. At present, some high-performance thermoplastic elastomers, fluoropolymers and nylon have occupied a large market share in the market due to their excellent performance price ratio

main problems in the development of domestic plastic hoses: the technical content of products urgently needs to be improved. At present, domestic plastic hoses are mostly general-purpose products. The market application field of plastic hoses is mainly used in water conservancy projects. The market consumption of aluminum-plastic composite pipes and polyethylene cross-linked pipes is also growing rapidly. However, as for the market as a whole, the market application in other fields is in its infancy, and there are few products with high requirements and high value-added content. For example, domestic optical fiber and cable products have been in short supply in recent two years. Domestic manufacturers now account for about 50% of China's optical fiber and cable market, and the rest are held by some foreign giants in the same industry

however, a new market information worthy of the attention of relevant domestic enterprises is that Zhao Zisen, an academician of the Chinese Academy of engineering who recently won the title of "father of China's optical fiber", pointed out that China's optical fiber and cable production capacity is expected to reach 20million kilometers by next year. In fact, the total demand for optical fiber and cable in China last year was about 8million kilometers, and this year is expected to be about 11million kilometers. With the current expansion momentum of major optical fiber and cable production enterprises, the domestic optical fiber and cable market will begin to appear in excess of supply next year. By 2005, the domestic market will have a serious surplus of optical fiber and cable products. At that time, the price of optical fiber may be reduced from the current $35 per kilometer to $18
