Year end inventory: top ten key words of the glass industry in 2011 (I)

the warm sun in winter can't hide the bitter cold, and the rustling leaves send away the old year. In 2011, another extraordinary year is about to leave us, and everything about it can only stay in our memory forever. Whether success or failure, the memory brought by 2011 is always unforgettable. As the opening year of the 12th Five Year Plan, 2011 is also a year of great historical significance for China's development, in which countless major events have taken place that have attracted our attention

especially for China's glass industry, 2011 is a year of special significance. But the so-called "special" here is not in a positive sense. In this year, China's glass industry has experienced pressure and tests from all parties. In 2011, the glass industry was struggling in the storm. Of course, these pressures do not all originate from the outside world. Many disadvantages existing in the whole glass industry, such as blind expansion, disorderly operation, lack of supervision and so on, also broke out intensively this year, making "recession" become a synonym for China's glass industry in 2011

although the weak trend spread to the fourth quarter, the new year is coming, and the industry will also usher in a new beginning. With the technological innovation and industry norms, it is believed that China's glass industry will also undergo gratifying changes in 2012. As the saying goes: can spring be far behind when winter comes

taking this opportunity, Huicong glass specially planned the "2011 top ten key words of the glass industry at the end of the year" to meet with friends at the dawn of the new year. This topic will interpret the development of the glass industry in 2011 from a new perspective

ten of the top ten key words of the year in the glass industry in 2011: glass curtain wall

today, glass curtain wall is not a new thing. As a unique design of modern architecture, it not only reflects the best combination of architecture and aesthetic structural design, but also can well show the process and functionality of glass, reflecting the harmonious unity of architecture and glass. In addition, the building curtain wall with energy-saving glass can greatly reduce the energy consumption inside the building, which can better reflect the environmental protection concept of low-carbon and energy conservation than traditional buildings

in the 1980s, glass curtain walls entered China and took the lead in big cities such as Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou. Today, China produces 70million square meters of glass curtain walls every year, accounting for 75% of the world's output. According to statistics, China has 200 million square meters of glass curtain walls, accounting for 85% of the world, and with the pace of building a "modern city" in China, this number is still rising

however, in recent years, many construction projects have been troubled by glass curtain walls. Some glass curtain walls have attracted wide attention from all walks of life because of their glass breakage, glass falling and other problems. In 2011, glass curtain walls were once again pushed to the forefront of the industry public opinion

the safety of building glass curtain walls in China is worrying

at present, in China, a considerable part of a large number of glass curtain wall buildings are old, especially the high-rise buildings with glass curtain walls, which have some problems, such as glass bursting, corrosion and deformation of hardware components, aging and cracking of sealing strips, loosening of stressed components and so on

experts said that under the action of typhoon or gravity, these glass curtain walls have great potential safety hazards, and some have even become time bombs hanging over people's heads in the city

according to incomplete statistics, there have been dozens of casualties caused by the explosion and fall of glass curtain walls in China since 2011. Therefore, in recent years, the Chinese government has issued a variety of laws and regulations to restrict the use of glass curtain walls. However, due to cost considerations, safer glass products such as tempered glass, laminated glass and wired glass are often abandoned by construction developers. Therefore, for domestic glass curtain walls, in addition to the implementation of regulatory measures such as "ID card", it is also a crucial aspect for the state to actively guide builders to adopt safer building glass through policy guidance

energy saving and environment-friendly glass is the mainstream of curtain wall applications in the future

in 2012, China will have more safety restrictions on many glass curtain walls. At the same time, new energy-saving glass will gradually replace traditional glass as the mainstream material of building curtain walls. High safety, low radiation, low energy consumption and low light pollution have become the new standards of curtain wall glass. It is believed that the resulting business opportunities will inject new vitality into China's glass market

the ninth of the top ten key words of the year in the glass industry in 2011: photovoltaic double anti-dumping

in early December 2011, the U.S. International Trade Commission made a preliminary determination of the damage of China's solar cell anti-dumping and countervailing cases, and then decided whether to impose countervailing and anti-dumping tariffs on China's solar cells exported to the United States in January and March 2012 respectively. If the arbitration still maintains the damage award, it will not only mean losing the U.S. market, but also the imitation of the European Union and other regions. It will also launch a "double anti" campaign against similar Chinese products. If Chinese photovoltaic enterprises are blocked in the U.S. and European markets at the same time, it will be a fatal blow to the domestic photovoltaic industry

the double reverse case has caused a heavy blow to the export of China's photovoltaic products

the biggest impact of the "double reverse" investigation event is that it has greatly affected the process of China's photovoltaic industry exporting to the United States. If the final ruling still maintains this result, it can also monitor the power quality that meets the en 61000 (4) (3) 0 standard, then in the future, the photovoltaic products exported by Chinese photovoltaic enterprises to the United States will face tariffs of 49.88% to 249.96%, This also basically ruined the American dream of Chinese photovoltaic enterprises. More importantly, if the final ruling of the United States on Chinese photovoltaic enterprises is still unfavorable to domestic photovoltaic enterprises, the subsequent chain reaction may be a challenge that Chinese photovoltaic enterprises need to face more. Such events are likely to trigger imitation in other regions. The European Union is likely to launch a "double anti" case against similar Chinese products. It is understood that at present, About 80% of the photovoltaic products exported by China are sold to the European Union. If Chinese photovoltaic enterprises are blocked in the U.S. and European markets at the same time, the losses will be unimaginable, which will make the already depressed Chinese photovoltaic enterprises even worse

this double anti incident has brought the biggest crisis to China's photovoltaic industry in recent years, although China's photovoltaic industry has developed by leaps and bounds in the past 10 years. However, the disorderly development of pure capacity expansion cannot bring a healthy impact on China's photovoltaic industry. Therefore, after the emergence of the double anti crisis, domestic enterprises can ensure that the complete export and expansion of the corners of products have been mercilessly strangled. However, from another perspective, this crisis may bring a glimmer of hope for China's disordered market. Domestic photovoltaic enterprises should take this opportunity to start from a single focus on production capacity to technological innovation. Really find a place in the international market

the future prospect of China's photovoltaic industry is not clear

the deposit clearing center will deduct the deposit of the beverage bottle from the associated account of the beverage manufacturer and return it to consumers

although the photovoltaic industry in the new energy industry has been subject to weak fundamentals and is difficult to perform well. However, the upcoming 12th Five Year Plan for renewable energy development may propose a new installed capacity target of 15million kW in five years, as well as the statement of the Ministry of industry and information technology to promote the integration of the domestic polysilicon industry, which undoubtedly ignited new hope for the photovoltaic industry in the cold winter. However, considering that the installed PV capacity of European countries accounts for a large proportion of the global total, it is too early to simply judge that the PV industry is about to get out of the dilemma against the backdrop of the current intensifying European debt crisis
