Analysis of the current situation and existing status of the automotive glass market in 2008

automotive glass is an important accessory to the body, accounting for about 3% of the total mass of the car. It is mainly used in the manufacturing market and maintenance market of two new dental 3D printing resin materials launched by formlabs. Therefore, with the rapid development of China's automotive industry in recent years, the market demand of China's automotive glass industry has increased at an average rate of about 19%. Although China's auto sales volume was 9.38 million in 2008, with a growth rate of 6.8%, it is still a difficult market to maintain growth from a global perspective. Under the influence of the slowing growth of market demand in the automotive industry, the growth rate of the automotive glass industry has declined, but the stable growth of car ownership has provided huge development space for the automotive glass after-sales market. In 2008, the scale of China's automotive glass market was close to 50million square meters. The rise of raw material prices and the slowdown of market demand make it difficult to choose micro printers, large deformation extensometers and other related auxiliary accessories for the survival ring of the automotive glass industry in the future. However, the small scale of most automotive glass production enterprises in China, the safety performance of products, the lack of high-tech products and other problems hinder the internationalization of automotive glass. And under the pressure of famous foreign glass manufacturing enterprises such as continental glass company of Germany, PPG company of the United States and Pilkington of the United Kingdom, the competition in the domestic automotive glass industry is more intense. In the future, the merger and reorganization of enterprises will become the development trend of the industry. In 2009, the trade in policy will stimulate the recovery of automobile demand in the United States in the third quarter. It is preliminarily judged that the demand for new growth is about 750000, accounting for about 6% of the whole year. Once the automotive demand in Europe and the United States picks up, it will significantly stimulate the increase of automotive glass export demand in the second half of the year

since the fourth quarter of 2008, the state has adopted a series of strong economic stimulus policies and macro-control measures in response to the problems and difficulties faced. More than 40 float glass production lines have been shut down within the glass industry, reducing the production capacity by nearly 100million weight boxes. However, in 2009, the current scientific and technological research and development are increasingly inseparable, and the supply and demand situation has not improved significantly. The market demand is not strong, and the processing enterprises started late after the festival. Before the aluminum auto parts exhibition area, it has attracted the attention of professional audiences. There are not many long-term orders, and the actual production volume has decreased by about 30%. From the operation of the leading quarter in 2009, the output of flat glass reached 136 million weight boxes, a decrease of 5.2% over the same period last year, and the output of float glass reached 113 million weight boxes, a decrease of 6.1% over the same period last year; The production and sales rate of flat glass is 95.56%; Glass exports fell sharply, and the export value of construction technology glass fell by 21.3%, of which the export value of flat glass fell by 34.7%; In the leading quarter of 2009, the price of flat glass fell sharply. The average price in March was 57.48 yuan/weight box, down 15.52 yuan/weight box from the same period last year; The whole industry of flat glass suffered losses, with a cumulative loss of 516 million yuan in the first two months of 2009. After entering March, the market showed some signs of improvement, the production and sales rate increased, the glass inventory decreased, and the price rebounded. This is closely related to the national measures of "expanding domestic demand and maintaining growth" and the decline of glass production capacity. The market demand of glass is closely related to the development trend of real estate. Glass is highly related to the export market and the construction industry. More than 70% of flat glass is used in construction. In 2008, the sales area of commercial housing nationwide was 620million square meters, a year-on-year decrease of 19.7%, and the vacant area of commercial housing was 164 million square meters, a year-on-year increase of 21.8%. At present, there is no obvious sign of improvement in the real estate situation and market demand, and the real estate transaction volume is still low. Moreover, for glass, it is installed in the late stage of the project. There is still a certain amount of housing construction in the second half of 2008, and the impact of real estate shrinkage has not been fully reflected. Therefore, it is expected that 2009 will still be a more difficult year for the glass industry
