Analysis of import and export status and development prospects of China's welding materials industry in 2020
China's import and export of welding materials are extremely unbalanced
The import and export of welding materials in China is extremely unbalanced. The export volume is far higher than the import volume, but the export price is far lower than the import price, which indicates that the development of China's welding materials industry is not balanced. The analysis of import and export data has strong guiding significance for the development of China's welding materials industry.
1. China's welding material import volume and import amount fluctuated and decreased
In recent years, the import volume and import volume of welding materials in China have fluctuated and decreased. In 2019, the import volume of welding materials in China reached 59000 tons, down 4.84% from 2018; The import volume reached US $260 million, down 3.70% from 2018.
From the perspective of import structure, welding wire is the main imported welding material product in China, accounting for 67% of China's welding material imports in 2019; From 2018 to 2019, the import share of welding flux decreased, while the share of welding rod and welding wire increased.
2. China's welding material exports are far higher than imports
From the perspective of the export volume of welding materials, the export volume of welding materials is far higher than the import volume, showing a fluctuating growth trend in recent years. In 2019, the export volume was 677000 tons and the export volume was about 720 million dollars.
This phenomenon is mainly caused by the continuous growth of welding material production capacity in China. At present, the export volume of welding materials in China is about 10 times of the import volume, and this gap may be widened again in the future.
From the perspective of export structure of welding materials, China's export products of welding materials are mainly welding wires and welding rods; In 2018, China's welding wire exports accounted for 45% of China's welding material exports, and in 2019, this figure dropped to 42%; In 2018, China's electrode exports accounted for 49% of China's welding material exports, and in 2019, this figure rose to 52%.
3. The import price of welding materials in China is about 4 times of the export price for a long time
From the perspective of the change of import and export price level, China has the problem of overproduction of low-end products and insufficient matching of high-end products. The import price is about 4 times of the export price for a long time. In the future, as China's welding material industry changes from high-speed development to high-quality development, this gap may be reduced.
