Prediction of the textile industry in 2014

The next few years, China ‘s textile industry will mainly rely on the renovation to enhance, rather than to expand the scale of cotton, PX and other raw materials issues will increasingly restrict the development of the industry; production capacity, production, orders and even profit further concentrated to large enterprises, restructuring would like textiles tilt. ” Said recently in Zibo when talking about the current situation of China ‘s textile industry Textile Federation Gao Yong, vice president and secretary.

Support the industry ‘s export growth speed

It is reported that the first 10 months of this year, China ‘s textile and apparel exports as a whole showed faster growth, total exports of $ 233.56 billion, an increase of 11% over the level of the country’s total foreign trade growth. Which textile exports 87.76 billion U.S. dollars, an increase of approximately 11%; apparel exports $ 145.8 billion, an increase of approximately 12%. The year is expected to exceed $ 300 billion exports.

“The whole situation is better than expected in the textile industry, this year the growth rate will not exceed 8% of that, but the second half, textiles month growth remained above 11%.” Said Gao Yong , the textile and garment industry beyond the expected transfer to Southeast Asian countries transfer ( region ) is more prominent, and the current growth of the textile industry are mainly exported to Southeast Asia rely on the support.

Gao Yong revealed that since last year, the eastern coastal areas to central and western areas of textile and garment industry slowdown. Mainly local labor costs, land cost advantage is no longer, as well as affected by the level of government services. Meanwhile, the South, Southeast transfer acceleration, especially export orders shift to faster growth in Southeast Asia, the former 10 months of data, one-month increase textile and garment exports up 46%.

“At present, textile supermarkets in developed countries, mostly from Bangladesh, Vietnam and other South and Southeast Asian countries, China has emerged from the lowest manufacture of textiles, poor quality reputation, began to enter the shopping malls, luxury stores.” Said Gao Yong, the current Chinese growth in the value of textile and garment exports mainly by price increases in recent years to see the situation from an annual price increases of more than 6%.

Purchasing and storage of farmers subsidies to crack the storm

For the current textile industry increasingly hostile environment, Gao Yong frustration that the cotton issue is still the key factor restricting the development of the industry.

It is understood that since the end of 2011, cotton prices began to plunge, fell at around 26,000 yuan / ton, many textile enterprises, including enterprise, including, want countries to introduce policies to prop up the market, purchasing and storage policy came into being. Prevailing cotton prices basically stable at around 20,000 yuan / ton, the domestic cotton prices therefore stable, international cotton prices continue to fall, fell to 13,000 yuan / ton, last year, six months time , the difference remained at home and abroad to 6,000 yuan / ton about. But with the continued implementation of the policy, and increasing the breadth of purchasing and storage efforts, resulting in shortage of cotton supply market, benefiting both farmers did not reach the goal, but also hurt the textile enterprise business demands.

” China ‘s cotton spinning enterprises to adapt to the market situation has not paid a painful price of cotton policy With production capacity, production, orders and even profit further concentrated to large enterprises, although the degree of concentration of production improved, but small and medium textile enterprises are struggling. from the investigation of the case to see, in Shandong cotton business difficulties, Northwestern has shut down most of the small cotton mill. ” said Gao Yong analysis, as a link to the backbone enterprises, SMEs rely on specialization of industrial clusters will be small and medium textile enterprises way out.

Gao Yong said that only the implementation of subsidy policy for farmers, in order to break the existing cotton industry dilemma. The competent authorities are currently working on policy details , the next step may be to conduct experiments may promotion a year later, Xinjiang is one of the pilot areas of China Textile Industry Association recommended.

Tilt to industrial textiles

” Early next year, Chinese textile and apparel industry will continue the growth momentum since the second half of this year, but the industry expansion will slow down.” Gao Yong believes that the next few years, China ‘s textile industry will mainly rely on the renovation to enhance, rather than scale expand, cotton, PX and other raw materials will become increasingly constrained development of the industry.

In this regard, Gao Yong explained that the current world consumption of fiber is 83 million tons, by 2020 there are 20 million tons of growth. The current production from the Chinese textile industry to see, if capacity can be released 5-7 years China needs to increase production capacity already exists, no new.

It is understood that, in the textile industry, competition in the market segment of the market, there are 15 percent overcapacity. Therefore, this year ‘s expansion of China ‘s textile industry relies mainly on the renovation, industrial textiles become the direction of the textile industry restructuring.

” Proportion of industrial textiles reflects the level of a country’s textile industry such as German industrial textiles accounted for 50%, Japan and the U.S. will account for 40 % -60 %.” Gao Yong said that in 2011 China has accounted for Textiles to 21% of fiber consumption, the original 2015 accounted for 25% of total fiber consumption, now look to be completed this year. However, if you really want to textiles dominate the entire textile industry to become the most important force , fiber consumption does not exceed 1/ 3, and now has not yet reached such a decisive factor. Is expected around 2020, industrial textiles will become the dominant force over clothing, home textiles textile industry.
