China Construction machinery information

Guide: Recently, the National Development and Reform Commission has successively approved a number of major steel and iron construction projects such as Zhanjiang, Guangdong, Fangchenggang, Guangxi and Shougang, with a total project investment of more than 100billion yuan. Insiders pointed out that this move is conducive to promoting the structural adjustment of the steel industry and the development of non steel industries. But judging from the current situation, in the steel industry

Recently, the national development and Reform Commission has successively approved a number of major steel construction projects, such as xifangchenggang and Shougang, in Zhanjiang and Guangzhou material testing machines, according to the loading method. The total investment of the project will be more than 100billion yuan. Insiders pointed out that this move is conducive to promoting the structural adjustment of the steel industry and the development of non steel industries. However, from the current situation, when the steel industry is deeply mired in overcapacity, the approval of the three major steel projects will bring new pressure on capacity expansion. Therefore, multiple groups of experiments can be done in one day, which requires the industry to speed up structural adjustment and integration

three major steel projects were approved

according to the disclosure of the national development and Reform Commission on May 25, the total investment of Baosteel Guangdong Zhanjiang steel base project is 69.68 billion yuan, and the construction scale is 9.2 million tons of iron, 10 million tons of steel and 9.38 million tons of steel per year. On the same day, Wuhan Iron and steel Guangxi Fangchenggang iron and steel base project, Yunnan Qiangmu, was also approved by the national development and Reform Commission, with a total investment of 63.99 billion yuan. The total investment of these two projects exceeds 130billion yuan

according to the data, as early as March 2008, the national development and Reform Commission had agreed to carry out the preliminary work of Baosteel Zhanjiang project and WISCO Fangchenggang project. However, due to the subsequent financial crisis and overcapacity in the steel industry, these two ten million ton steel projects failed to obtain the "birth permit"

"as the domestic steel industry is in the period of industrial structure adjustment, the endogenous demand of environmental protection and ecological city construction and the overall demand of steel enterprises to expand production capacity and strengthen layout have led to the relaxation of domestic steel project approval." Yuan Zhibin, a researcher in the metallurgical industry of CIC, said in an interview

not only the Zhanjiang and Fangchenggang projects, the national development and Reform Commission recently approved the Shougang steel relocation project, which is located in Qian'an City, Tangshan, Hebei Province. It is planned to form a production scale of 7.8 million tons of iron, 8 million tons of steel, 6.37 million tons of hot-rolled plates and 1.2 million tons of cold-rolled plates

"from the perspective of Guangdong Zhanjiang Port Zhongda iron and steel construction project and Shougang Zhongda iron and steel construction project, the expansion of production capacity has led to serious environmental pollution. Due to the pressure of environmental protection rectification, it is also reasonable for them to transfer to second and third tier cities. The Guangxi Fangchenggang iron and steel project aims to reduce transportation costs, improve the efficiency of steel transportation and obtain economic benefits. These three are approved under the background of economic and environmental sustainability." Yuan Zhibin said

it is worth mentioning that Fangchenggang and Zhanjiang iron and steel base are only more than 200 kilometers away, and the market and hinterland of the high-end sheet products are in South China and Southeast Asia. According to Yuan Zhibin, due to the overlap between Fangchenggang and Zhanjiang steel base in target markets and product types, there will be excessive competition in the future

structural adjustment and integration must be accelerated

it is undeniable that the steel industry has been in a continuous downturn in recent years and has entered a low profit. Data show that in the first quarter of this year, the steel industry achieved a net profit of -1.034 billion yuan, which is the first industry wide loss since the new century, and it is also the industry with the largest decline in industrial profits in the country. The country's crude steel production capacity of 900 million tons is also accused of excess

with the steel industry mired in overcapacity, will the approval of the three major steel projects bring new capacity pressure

yuan Zhibin said that the state has recently strengthened policy support in three aspects: expanding domestic demand, promoting consumption, and stabilizing foreign trade. In the long run, this move is conducive to promoting the structural adjustment of the steel industry and the development of non steel industries. Judging from the current situation, the approval of the three major steel projects will bring new pressure on capacity expansion. This is because the State encourages private capital to participate in steel and other projects on the premise that the international economic growth is facing a decline through the "experiment" button on the control panel, and the approval of steel projects is very likely to lead to a new round of capacity expansion and a new round of investment

some insiders pointed out that although there is overall overcapacity in the steel industry at present, it does not mean that the structural adjustment and rational layout of the industry should stop. From the perspective of the overall layout of the iron and steel industry, the layout of China's iron and steel industry generally presents the characteristics of "focusing on the north and light on the South" and "more in the East and less in the west". The southeast coastal areas, especially the Pearl River Delta, have been transporting a large amount of steel from other places for a long time, while the production capacity of the five provinces and cities around the Bohai Sea is about 400 million tons, and nearly half of the excess production flows to other regions mainly in the south. This unreasonable layout has caused great occupation and waste of public resources

"Baosteel Zhanjiang project and WISCO Fangchenggang project are the steel industry extension of Baosteel and WISCO based on the steel market in the coming decades. These two projects play a decisive role in the structural adjustment of the steel industry and the large-scale and standardized production of medium and high-end plates in China. In view of the overcapacity and declining profits in the domestic steel industry, Baosteel and WISCO are working in Guangxi and Zhanjiang in order to achieve upstream raw materials The effective connection between raw materials and downstream markets, so as to achieve the effect of 1+1 ≥ 2 in steel production efficiency.
