Since 2000, China's refractory industry has entered the fastest development stage, and is now a major producer and exporter of refractories in the world. According to the 2011 global refractory output survey conducted by the European Federation of Refractories Manufacturers (PRE), the global refractory output in 2011 was 42.75 million tons, of which 29.5 million tons were produced in China, accounting for 69% of the global output. With the improvement of independent innovation ability and technological equipment level, the advantages and status of refractory industry in the international refractory market have been greatly improved. At present, China's refractory products not only meet the needs of domestic high-temperature industrial production and development, but also export volume is increasing year by year. The market covers more than 150 countries and regions such as Asia, Europe and America. The export volume has been the first in the world for many years.
Although there are many refractory enterprises in China, their concentration is low. At the end of 2013, there were 231 enterprises with sales revenue of more than 20 million yuan. The market share of the top 10 refractory enterprises was less than 15%. The market share of Punai (002225, stock bar) was less than 3% and Beijing Lier (002392, stock bar) was less than 2%. Compared with the international giants, Punai, the largest business income in China, ranks 12th in the world, far lower than Morgan Crucible, which ranks 10th in the world. In order to curb low-level duplicate construction, speed up structural adjustment and promote sustainable development of refractory products industry, Ministry of Industry and Information Technology promulgated "Standard Conditions for Refractory Materials Industry" (2014 edition) on December 31, 2014, which includes production layout, process and equipment, quality management, cleaner production, energy saving, consumption reduction and comprehensive utilization, safety production, occupational health and Society for refractory products enterprises. Requirements have been made in terms of responsibility and supervision and management.
At present, China's refractory products industry will focus on optimizing the product structure, stretching the industrial chain and enhancing the comprehensive competitiveness of the industry; vigorously develop intensively processed products, improve the added value and technical content of products, and upgrade the product grade; focus on the development of new building materials and products with functions of safety, environmental protection, energy saving, noise reduction and leakage prevention, to meet the needs of green construction. Building development needs. The refractory industry will speed up the cultivation of inorganic non-metallic new materials, support the development of strategic emerging industries, and realize the "Several Opinions on Promoting the Healthy and Sustainable Development of Refractory Industry" pointed out by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. By 2015, 2-3 enterprises with international competitiveness will be formed, and several new industrial demonstration bases will be established, so that the industrial concentration of the first ten enterprises will reach 25%. By 2020, the industrial concentration of ten enterprises has increased to 45%. Eight tasks have been put forward, including promoting joint restructuring, optimizing industrial layout, strengthening energy-saving consumption, stringent environmental management, developing high-end products, encouraging technological innovation, eliminating backward production capacity and strengthening safety in production. These tasks have brought new opportunities to listed companies and listed companies in refractory products industry and are worth investing in.
