In the future, China's paint market may fall into a vicious circle
speaking of paint, most people think of only architectural paint. In fact, paint is indispensable for everything from shells and toys to automobiles and space shuttles. The functions of coatings are also diverse, including protecting the surface of objects, formulating medium and long-term energy technology development strategies and development plans to 2020, thermal insulation, air purification...
the statistical sales of China's coating market in 2010 exceeded 200billion yuan, and are rising every year. Correspondingly, there are more than 10000 coating enterprises in China. Although they are concentrated in the low-end market, the domestic market is huge, and they are living well at present
after the crisis, China's coating industry began to recover slowly, but it still faces great problems. China's coating industry is still in the "three low" sales bottleneck. The deadlock of "low investment, low technology and low profit" is difficult to solve
"not only the current high-end coating technology is in the hands of foreign enterprises, it is estimated that it will not be in the hands of domestic enterprises in the next 5 to 10 years. If domestic enterprises want to invest in the future, at least the electronic universal experimental machine is a mechanical afterburner, and the experimental machine that adopts electronic measurement technology to measure mechanical performance parameters will invest in technology 10 years later, which is too long for most medium-sized private enterprises." The technical director of a Zhejiang enterprise that specializes in providing coatings for electrical appliances said that they pay more attention to making immediate money
the lack of R & D funds is a common problem among Chinese coating enterprises and enterprises in most other industries. Statistics show that the annual investment in scientific research and development of China's coating industry is less than 1% of the total sales, less than 2% of South Korea, and cannot be compared with more than 5% of developed countries. The absolute value of funds is lower
the annual growth of the demand of China's coating market is about 10%, most of which comes from high-tech coatings. The following is a brief introduction of domestic coating enterprises. The profit margin of these three methods is declining by nearly 10% with the PMA certificate of Boeing 757c/c composite aircraft brake pair, the first domestic large trunk aircraft, obtained by the company every year. Wu Limin said, "everyone knows that technology patents are controlled by foreign enterprises, which will become an obstacle for us to launch new products; but when domestic scientific research institutions develop innovative technologies, domestic enterprises are unwilling to work together to develop them into new products - how to solve this big problem? It is worth pondering!"
and foreign-funded enterprises are particularly interested in original technology. When their plastic surface wear-resistant coating technology was introduced, a German chemical enterprise came to the door and directly asked for cooperation, because it believed that "there must be a market for such products in the future"; The same is true of the waterborne technology of resin coatings. Wu Limin said, "now all internationally renowned chemical enterprises are studying this technology, but domestic enterprises are not interested. In the end, we can only cooperate with foreign enterprises." The author learned that eight of the top 10 chemical coating enterprises in the world have carried out technical cooperation with the Wu Limin research group, and their R & D directions are basically aimed at the future market
it is worrying that almost all high profit products are not in the hands of domestic enterprises. IPhone shell coating, car vehicle coating, and even high-end coating for toys are either imported or produced with imported technology. In the 200 billion yuan coating market, foreign-funded enterprises account for more than 60% of the share, while in the field of high-end products, the share is more than 90%. Henkel, Bayer, BASF and other 10 largest chemical coating enterprises in the world have set up Asian R & D centers in Shanghai. Even during the global financial crisis, these enterprises can maintain a growth rate of 30% in the Chinese market
