In his speech, Chen Quanxun summarized the achievements of my country’s aluminum processing industry in 2020, and analyzed the problems and challenges faced by the industrial development. He pointed out that in 2020, under the strong strength of the Party Central Committee, the entire industry has achieved unexpected results in both production and profit growth in the overall planning of epidemic prevention and control and industrial development, and a brilliant answer sheet has been handed in. Mainly manifested in several aspects: First, the output reached a new high. In 2020, aluminum production will reach 42.1 million tons, with an average annual growth rate of 5.3% during the “13th Five-Year Plan” period, ranking it globally for 15 consecutive years. The second is the continuous enhancement of innovation capabilities. The number of patents in the industry continues to be among the top, the number of enterprise technology centers and engineering centers continues to increase, and independent innovation capabilities are enhanced. The high-voltage electronic foil that relied on imports in the past two years has been localized and exported to Japan and other countries. Aluminum products such as aluminum alloy sheet (ABS) for passenger car body panels and power battery foil have been mass-produced and are making breakthroughs. The third is the continuous improvement of development quality and efficiency. In 2020, the average sales profit margin of the aluminum processing industry rebounded by 0.8 percentage points to 2.7%, the average asset-liability ratio fell by 2.3 percentage points to 59.1%, and the number of green factories and individual items continued to increase. Fourth, the strength of the company continues to increase, and “specialized, sophisticated, and new” companies continue to emerge. In 2020, the aluminum output of Chinalco Manufacturing, Shandongnanshan Aluminum, and Henan Mingtai Aluminum will exceed 1 million tons; the output of aluminum profiles of Guangdong Xingfa Aluminum will reach 650,000 tons, and the output of aluminum foils of Jiangsu Dingsheng New Materials will reach 510,000 tons. The global influence of enterprises is continuously increasing, and the demonstration and driving role is constantly increasing.
“However, my country’s aluminum processing industry still faces many challenges in terms of overcapacity, independent innovation, environmental protection, and external recycling.” Chen Quanxun puts forward five suggestions for this: First, we must focus on improving the ability of independent innovation and intelligence. Taking the enhancement of the global aluminum processing industry development capability as the starting point and goal, strengthen industry-university-research-application cooperation, strengthen international exchanges, further innovate platforms, increase R&D investment, strengthen basic and forward-looking research, and strengthen original innovation to adapt to the industry Need to run to. Second, we must adhere to green and low-carbon development. Adhere to the bottom line of environmental protection, continue to promote the transformation of environmental protection from terminal management to process control and source reduction, and continue to improve the level of green development. Strengthen the re-use of scrap aluminum and promote the integration of aluminum regeneration and processing. Third, we must “go out” and create a new situation of “outer circulation”. It is necessary to actively respond to trade frictions and stabilize the basic export of aluminum products; it is necessary to benchmark international enterprises to improve the quality of enterprises; enterprises with the necessary conditions must actively build factories abroad to improve their international operating capabilities and levels. Fourth, we must unswervingly expand the application. It is necessary to focus not only on the major national strategic needs, but also on the needs of the people for a better life, and give full play to the advantages of aluminum with the dual properties of functional materials and structural materials, especially the huge potential in helping end-use carbon emission reductions, and insist on strengthening Tapping the potential of the traditional consumer field and developing new applications simultaneously, we will continue to play the game of “expanding applications”. Fifth, we must strengthen industry self-discipline and build a community with a shared future for the industry. Invest with caution and prioritize mergers and acquisitions to prevent further aggravation of overcapacity; strengthen industry communication to prevent “involution”, safeguard the interests of the country and the industry, and create a community of destiny for the industry.
In his speech, Xiang Lemin welcomed the guests attending this conference and introduced the development of Huzhou’s new material industry. He said that in recent years, Huzhou City has continued to comply with the “green and intelligent manufacturing”-oriented differentiated allocation mechanism of land, electricity, water, gas and other resource elements, guiding enterprises to achieve “intelligent production, high-tech products, and green processes”. , To promote the green development of the new material industry. Under the leading role of a group of enterprises, both the quality and efficiency of development and the industrial level have been significantly improved; and with the continuous agglomeration and development of key enterprises, the metal structure material industry cluster has continued to grow. Dongliang Aluminum is one of the representative companies in the industry. Especially after Wanbond Group controlled Dongliang New Material in 2017, its aluminum alloy products have been fully recognized by the market. Xiang Lemin also said that he hopes that all guests and experts can speak freely at the conference, gather consensus on green and intelligent manufacturing development, and jointly provide suggestions and ideas for industrial development, brainstorming ideas, and jointly promote the development of the industry, and at the same time, through this conference to enhance the understanding of Huzhou , Discuss new opportunities for exchanges and cooperation with us, and strive to achieve win-win cooperation.
In his speech, Chang Guowu pointed out that the current internal and external situation facing the development of the aluminum processing industry is complex and changeable. At the same time, the industry’s independent innovation is not strong, and the level of intelligent manufacturing is not high. It is necessary to accelerate the breakthrough of material technology and the pace of industrial application. He said that the aluminum processing industry must conscientiously implement the major decisions and deployments of the Party Central Committee and the State Council, based on the new development stage, implement the new development concept, build a new development pattern, give full play to the advantages of the aluminum processing industry as a hub node connecting upstream and downstream, and scientifically under the new situation Be responsive and actively seek change. First, continue to optimize the industrial structure, optimize the layout by considering factors such as product raw materials and consumer markets, and continuously increase the proportion of short-process processes; actively develop the recycling industry, establish a closed-loop recycling system, and break through key technologies for degrading recycling. The second is to improve the level of green and intelligent, optimize the energy structure, improve the level of end-use electrification, eliminate outdated processes, technologies, and equipment; implement the “Guidelines for the Construction of Intelligent Processing Plants in the Non-ferrous Metals Industry”, and build a responsive and coordinated non-ferrous intelligent processing factory . The third is to actively tap the market potential, based on the large domestic market, centering on the major needs of national economic development, focusing on key areas and key products, and building upstream and downstream cooperation platforms, product standards and design specifications, from production materials to parts and parts. Extend, provide systematic solutions.
“The non-ferrous metals futures market continues to play its role in serving the real economy, and the price system is improving day by day. It has achieved a win-win pattern of mutual promotion and coordinated development of futures and cash. With the help of the futures market, the non-ferrous metal spot industry has established a market-oriented development path and built a futures price The basic market-oriented price system, and the non-ferrous metal futures prices represented by copper and aluminum have become the pricing benchmarks for domestic spot trade.” Bao Jianping said in his speech that in order to serve the real economy at a deeper level, the Shanghai Futures Exchange proposed the development of “one main and two wings”. Strategy, launch standard warehouse receipt transactions, give full play to the function of the futures market, open up the “last mile” of the futures market to serve the development of the real economy, promote the development of multi-level commodity markets, service supply-side structural reforms, and promote the price discovery of bulk commodities. It is hoped that through this meeting, we can cooperate with aluminum processing enterprises in the business model and business model of warehouse receipt transactions, swaps, pledge financing, aluminum rods and other non-standard product transactions, swaps and basis transactions, and other over-the-counter derivatives transactions in the upstream and downstream of the aluminum industry chain. In-depth discussions and exchanges are required to provide enterprises with more products and market services.
