Comparisons between strength and weakness of wood-based panel industry in main plywood producing areas
Owing to the impact of cost factors and stricter environmental regulations, China’s wood-based panel industry has entered a period of industrial transformation and upgrading, and the elimination of backward production capacity will continue to accelerate.
_Cost is the main driving force for price increase, and environmental shutdown directly affects the balance of supply and demand in the industry. Manufacturers have begun not to accept advance payments or oral appointments, and the prices are based on the current prices. With the deepening of supply-side structural reform, China’s wood-based panel industry transformation and upgrading, the elimination of backward capacity continues to accelerate.
_Statistics on the production status of plywood enterprises in nine provinces and regions of China’s main plywood producing areas are as follows:
_The original plywood production enterprises in Hebei Province
_The original plywood production enterprises in Henan Province
_The original plywood production enterprises in Shandong Province
_The original plywood production enterprises in Jiangsu Province
_The original plywood production enterprises in Zhejiang Province
_Anhui original plywood production enterprises
_Fujian original plywood production enterprises
_Guangdong Province’s original plywood production enterprises
_. The original plywood production enterprises in Guangxi Autonomous Region
On the one hand, the above situation shows that the new national environmental protection policy has obvious effect on the management of plywood industry. On the other hand, the punishment and management of small workshops and plywood enterprises that do not pay attention to environmental protection have been strengthened. On the other hand, the punishment of enterprises that blindly pay attention to production without paying attention to environmental protection and fail to meet product quality standards due to poor internal management has also been strengthened. The new environmental protection policy plays a positive role in the adjustment of plywood industrial structure.
_Industry experts believe that China’s new environmental protection policy has affected the production, profits and employment of some plywood producing areas, and will inevitably affect the export quantity of plywood products in China, but it is very beneficial to the overall healthy development of China’s plywood industry. Although the total output of plywood is reduced, it improves the quality of plywood products and prolongs the life cycle of plywood products. Therefore, the supply of domestic plywood market is still guaranteed and the market competition is more rational.
_For the beneficiaries of this storm, the most beneficial logic is simple: after environmental protection verification, there is no restriction on production, leading enterprises often have scale advantages and bargaining power; enterprises with upstream resources benefit most in the process of raw material price increase; the more inclined to C section, the better price conduction. The downstream market demand of wood-based panels will gradually become prominent, especially in the field of whole-house customization and home decoration market, the large demand for wood-based panels will be more obvious.
