The hottest tire industry faces multiple obstacles

  • Detail

The tire industry is facing multiple obstacles. Enterprises call for the abolition of natural rubber tariffs. The Fifth China Rubber Market Development Forum and the 2010 World Rubber Summit Forum were held in Qingdao recently. The U.S. tire warranty case has become the main topic of the forum, which focuses on plastic film blowing machines, with a large proportion in the market

people in the industry talk more about: the United States should particularly "protect the tire", and how China's tire industry should "protect the tire". Many tire enterprises call on China to be in line with international practices, cancel natural rubber tariffs, and reduce the cost pressure of enterprises

according to the China Rubber Industry Association, although China's tire industry was hit by the financial crisis and the U.S. tire warranty case in 2009, driven by the national domestic demand policy, the tire output in 2009 reached 380million, an increase of 8.6% year-on-year. At the same time, the U.S. tire warranty case only affected the fourth quarter, and the export delivery value of 44 member enterprises of China Rubber Industry Association decreased by only 3.4% compared with last year

Cai Weimin, Secretary General of the tire branch of China Rubber Industry Association, said at the forum that under the national preferential policies and the positive response of the tire industry, the export of tires has not experienced ups and downs at present, but the national environment in 2010 was complex and volatile, and the tire industry was facing multiple obstacles such as high raw material prices, special protection cases and weak international market demand

first, raw materials such as natural rubber are expensive, which puts great cost pressure on enterprises. Natural rubber is the main raw material for tire manufacturing, 70% of which depends on imports, and the import tariff is as high as 20%. Now the price of raw materials such as rubber has returned to a high level, which has brought huge cost pressure to enterprises. Although many enterprises have raised the factory price of tires, they are far from keeping up with the rise in the price of raw materials such as rubber

second, after the "special safeguard case" in the United States, there are more and more foreign technical barriers to tires. According to fan Rende, from January to September this year, the United States imposed a 35% additional tariff on the basis of the original 4% tariff, and the additional tariff in the last quarter was as high as 30%, which is bound to impact China's tire exports and become a more difficult year for tire enterprises. At the same time, in recent years, more than 20 countries have issued more than 50 tire technical standards and regulations, and more than 10 countries have filed 14 anti-dumping, countervailing and special protection cases against Chinese tires, involving more than $2.5 billion

third, the international tire market demand in 2010 is still not booming. According to the analysis of industry experts, the global tire demand in 2009 decreased from about 1.3 billion in 2008 to about 1.24 billion, the demand for truck tires decreased by about 3.7%, and the light load tires decreased by about 4.2%, which can meet the expanded functional requirements and customer business goals, and the car tires decreased by about 5.2%. In 2010, the demand for car tyres is expected to decline by 0.2%, and the demand for other tyres is expected to increase and decrease slightly, and the export of tyres will be subject to many restrictions
