Recently, Xu Wenying, secretary-general of China Rubber Industry Association, said at the meeting that under the influence of many unfavorable factors such as increased international trade friction and declining automobile production and sales, China's tire export pressure is huge this year, and all steel tire exports have experienced negative growth.
"China Rubber" has learned that China's tire exports account for about 40% of total sales. The industry's dependence on exports is very high. The bad export situation can directly affect the benefits of the whole industry.
According to Xu Wenying, in the first quarter of this year, the export volume of semi-steel tires in the whole industry was 480,000 tons, an increase of 5.4% year-on-year. However, the export volume of all-steel tires with the largest amount of glue in the current period decreased by 3.2% year-on-year. The export volume was 766,000 tons.
Shi Yifeng, secretary general of the China Rubber Association Tire Branch, added that from the current situation, the overall operation of 39 key tire companies is relatively stable, but now the pressure on the tire industry is unprecedented.
The pressure is mainly reflected in the three aspects of export, replacement and matching. In terms of exports, these enterprises only increased by 1.2% in the first four months of this year, and the truck and bus tires increased by 1.1%.
In terms of matching, the number of auto parts in the first four months dropped by 13.7%. According to preliminary estimates, there are about 54 million impacts on car tires.
Xu Wenying said that China's tire industry faces severe challenges such as trade barriers and high natural rubber import tariffs. Under the drastic changes in the external environment, our export-oriented thinking needs to be changed, and we need to look more at the domestic market.
She finally pointed out that although China's automobile production and sales are declining, China's automobile ownership is the world's number one. The demand for replacement rubber products will continue to grow. The whole industry needs to seize the opportunities steadily and have an international operational thinking. Emphasis on quality and brand promotion, and focus on the competition of human capital and differentiated products, from manufacturers to service providers.
