|Abrasive Production Status and Development Trend in Dengfeng Area|
|Release time: 2018-4-13|
| Recently, reporters from China Abrasives Network and China Coated Abrasives Network went to Dengfeng, one of China's main abrasive production areas, and made a basic understanding of the current status of the abrasive industry production in the region. One word to summarize the reporter's feelings is "surprise." |
I. Production Status
Dengfeng City has jurisdiction over 3 streets, 9 towns, and 4 townships. The abrasive and abrasive industry is mainly concentrated in Ludian Town, Daye Town, Yangcheng Industrial Zone, Dajindian Town, Gaocheng Town, Tangzhuang Township, and Liyang City. town.
Since the beginning of this year, especially in the second half of the year, the information on environmental protection and production suspension on the Internet has skyrocketed. The reporter learned from Dengfeng that on the one hand, the suspension of production is mainly targeted at those undocumented enterprises; on the other hand, smelting enterprises are affected by environmental protection policies. Larger, regional production is stopped and production is limited, while regular abrasive processing enterprises are less affected and can basically produce normally.
In terms of price, some abrasive companies keep their prices unchanged. Although raw materials have risen sharply, these companies have reserved a considerable amount of raw materials in advance to stabilize customers by digesting inventories; and some abrasive companies adjust their prices in accordance with market changes. .
1. The new generation is emerging
Dengfeng's abrasive and abrasive industry is related to Ersha. It has grown stronger than the 1980s and 1990s. Most enterprises are mainly small and medium-sized enterprises. Today, part of the entrepreneurs of this generation of "Dajiangshan" are gradually exiting the abrasive industry circle due to age issues. Although some remain in the circle, the enthusiasm and enthusiasm for hard work have faded, and they are mainly guarding, and are unwilling to invest more in the abrasive industry. At present, the new generation of entrepreneurs in their thirties and forties are beginning to emerge as a new group, playing an increasingly important role in the development of the local abrasive industry. In contrast, the new generation of entrepreneurs has a significantly higher level of education and strong brand awareness. For Dengfeng Abrasives Industry, the injection of fresh blood helps to break the inherent development model and business philosophy and helps achieve the industry. 2. Enterprise transformation and upgrading.
2. Increasing industrial concentration
The vicious competition has been criticized in the abrasive industry, which has seriously hindered the healthy development of the industry. One of its roots is those undocumented "scattered dirty" small workshop enterprises, which makes it difficult for formal abrasive enterprises to compete with those low-cost small workshops. The ensuing environmental storm is forcing small workshops to either accept the transformation or leave the abrasive industry. The investment in environmental protection and the upgrading and upgrading of production lines are more difficult for these small workshop enterprises, and the rest can only be withdrawn from the circle. At present, many small enterprises in Dengfeng have withdrawn or are exiting the industry stage, the industry concentration is gradually increasing, and a healthy development trend of the industry is taking shape.
3.Automated green production
Environmental protection, rising raw materials, difficult recruitment, labor shortage, and rising labor costs have become increasingly prominent. To solve these problems, automation equipment has become an inevitable choice for abrasive companies. On the one hand, it greatly reduces manpower and management costs, on the other hand, improves product quality, and on the other hand, the supporting environmental protection equipment meets the requirements of green production. The reporter saw in Dengfeng that some abrasive enterprises have built new workshops and replaced the use of automated tooling equipment. There are only three or two people working in the large workshop. The clean and tidy production environment is impressive.
4. Differentiated and coordinated development
Homogenization competition is also a major problem that plagues the development of the abrasive industry. This pattern is being broken in Dengfeng. Taking several large-scale enterprises as examples, Wudu Abrasive focuses on smelting and mainly exports sand; Ant abrasive focuses on calcined abrasives and plating abrasives; Yizhong Refractory mainly uses ordinary fine sands, and takes into account the research and development of zircon corundum. Sheng Long mainly produces ceramic sand ... This kind of regional development model that takes full advantage of their respective resources and takes the path of differentiation and characteristics is worth learning.
