On the 24th, the reporter learned from relevant channels that the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology is reviewing the latest entry conditions for the printing and dyeing industry and is expected to be introduced within the year. Industry insiders predict that the barriers to entry will increase significantly.
It is understood that the annual profit contributed by the textile printing and dyeing industry accounts for about 3% of the profits of various industries in the country, and sewage discharge accounts for 10% of the entire industrial sewage discharge, and it has a rising trend year by year. At the same time, the wastewater recovery rate is only 7%, the lowest among all industries.
In fact, the development of the printing and dyeing industry is facing many difficulties. The downturn in the macro economy, the increasing difficulty of financing, and rising labor and resource costs have put increasing pressure on the printing and dyeing industry.
Among them, the cost of hydropower and coal accounts for about 40% of the total cost. The shortage of water resources and the surge in energy costs have increased the cost of printing and dyeing enterprises. At the same time, due to the characteristics of resource consumption in the printing and dyeing industry, the costs caused by environmental protection investment have also increased year by year.
Affected by the tightening funding environment and the increase in the use of funds for finished products, financial management costs of enterprises have skyrocketed. Taking management expenses as an example, in the printing and dyeing industry, silk printing and dyeing management expenses increased by more than 40%, wool printing and dyeing management expenses increased by more than 20%, and cotton printing and dyeing rose by 10%.
At present, although the industry's entry barriers are constantly rising, the technical level of the printing and dyeing industry still needs to be improved. Especially in the high-end product market, the export price of similar products is far lower than the import price.
"Environmental governance pressure is increasing, and small printing and dyeing companies that are heavily polluted by capital and technology are difficult to sustain. Elimination of backward production capacity will free up market space for superior enterprises." Analysts from GF Securities believe that the elimination of backward production capacity will have Large-scale printing and dyeing enterprises with environmental protection and energy saving technology are expected to achieve rapid growth.
While substantially improving access conditions, in recent years the NDRC has successively issued outdated production capacity elimination plans for the printing and dyeing industry. Under the background of continuous increase in industry demand and gradual elimination of backward production capacity, the average annual new production capacity has reached 6-6.5 billion meters, and the average annual new investment needs to be more than 12 billion yuan. Industry insiders predict that the increasing barriers to entry will become a catalyst for industry differentiation.
