Beginning in 1995, a group of powerful enterprises began to digest and absorb the technical essence of foreign European profiles, and developed their own door and window series, which became the leading domestic plastic doors and windows, promoted the technology update and development of doors and windows, and made the whole industry unprecedented. Development and rapid growth. After entering the maturity of the product, that is, since 2003, many drawbacks have begun to reflect. Excessive profit margins have led to blind investment, making the industry's comprehensive production capacity nearly 3 million tons, far higher than market demand; many new investment Instead of starting with product innovation and technological innovation, they simply imitate and even cut corners, fake and shoddy, and the industry market competition is in an unhealthy state. The rising prices of raw materials have intensified this unhealthy competition, which has caused some enterprises to be in trouble and have stopped production or semi-discontinued.
The status quo of the PVC profile industry
There are also a large number of production enterprises (nearly 400) in this industry, small production capacity (2.8 million tons), small demand (1.2 million tons of national profile sales in 2003), the contradiction that capacity cannot be fully utilized, and the annual output exceeds There are less than 10 enterprises with 20,000 tons, the quality of products is uneven, the inferior products still have a market, and the technical quality standards of the industry are too low, which is not conducive to technological progress, resulting in a comeback of substitute aluminum. The high-end market (30%) is occupied by foreign brands, and the middle and low-end markets are unprofitable and fiercely competitive. The final pattern has not yet been formed.
In terms of factory distribution, among the 392 profile manufacturers, 37% in the southeast, 12% in Shandong, 17% in the central region, 19% in the northeast, and 15% in the western region. From the production capacity segment, the national production capacity in 2003 was 2.8 million tons, 9% in Shandong, 1% in the central region, 32% in the northeast, 7% in the western region, and 39% in the southeast.
