SMM News: September 20, the first photovoltaic glass industry chain collaborative development summit forum was held in Wuhu, Anhui Province. Shi Lin of the Building Materials Department of the Raw material Industry Department of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology said in his speech that the contradiction of serious overcapacity of flat glass has not fundamentally changed, and capacity replacement must be strictly carried out, and the next step will be combined with the actual situation of the development of the industry. the method of capacity replacement will be revised and improved, and relevant enterprises are welcome to provide opinions and suggestions.
Shi Lin said that with the introduction of a series of policies and measures such as the state to promote the resumption of work and production, the economic operation of the national flat glass industry has gradually improved, production is basically stable, prices have risen steadily, and benefits have continued to grow. Among them, the flat glass output of enterprises above scale from January to July was 540 million weight boxes, down 0.3% from the same period last year, with an average ex-factory price of 74.2 yuan per weight box, an increase of 4.7% over the same period last year; operating income of 45.38 billion yuan, an increase of 2.6% over the same period last year; realized profits of 5.85 billion yuan, an increase of 13.4% over the same period last year; sales profit margin of 12.9%, an increase of 1.2% over the same period last year. From January to July, the export of flat glass was 15.56 million weight cases, down 30.5% from the same period last year; the export value was 840 million US dollars, down 8.3% from the same period last year.
Shi Lin pointed out that the current international political and economic situation is extremely complex and grim, and it is difficult to be optimistic about the situation faced by the glass industry. in particular, the contradiction of serious overcapacity in flat glass has not fundamentally changed, and the whole industry must not take this lightly. We need to be vigilant, unswervingly implement a series of national policies and measures to eliminate production capacity, and promote supply-side structural reforms. Promote the sustained, stable and high-quality development of the flat glass industry.
Shi Lin stressed that the key to resolving excess capacity is to strictly prohibit new projects to expand capacity, and capacity replacement must be strictly implemented. To this end, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology issued document No. 37 in 2017, which has achieved remarkable results in promoting the structural adjustment of cement glass industry to eliminate excess capacity. Practice has proved that capacity replacement is a good method, which not only gives full play to the role of the market in allocating the flow of resources, but also gives better play to the role of the government.
Of course, no method can be perfect, and there is still room for further modification and improvement of the capacity replacement method. Shi Lin said that in order to further deepen the supply-side structural reform and promote the stable and healthy development of capacity replacement and the glass industry, the competent department is studying and revising the replacement method, which mainly includes three aspects: first, to revise the unclear content of the existing policy, supplement and improve it, and further improve the pertinence and maneuverability of the policy; The second is to absorb the changes in the operation since the introduction of the policy, such as the notice on the prohibition of new production capacity in the flat glass industry put forward in document No. 57 in 2018, absorbing the relevant contents of its capacity system and implementation methods of capacity replacement; third, with the change of the situation, the adjustment of the "measures" does not adapt to the content, such as the adjustment of the replacement ratio to further reduce the scope of replacement capacity. She stressed that in this meeting, she will fully listen to the opinions and suggestions of relevant enterprises and revise and adjust the relevant policies.
