Policy preference: the paper industry can achieve satisfactory results only if it is strengthened (I)

in recent years, with the continuous growth of the demand for high-end stationery in China, the paper industry will become a sustainable industry in the next 20 years. In the latest statistics, the paper industry has become one of the few traditional industries generally favored by professionals and enterprises

it is understood that the global demand for paper products has increased at an average annual rate of 3% in recent years, of which China has the fastest growth rate, about 7% per year

since this year, domestic and foreign paper giants have been rushing around their new and expanded project sites, and a market competition for high-end paper products has begun

decisive battle for high-grade paper

there is a huge development space for the paper industry in the future. Zhao Wei, Secretary General of China Paper Association, has an account in his heart. He told: "At present, China has entered the ranks of the world's major paper producers, consumers and importers. In 2002, the production and consumption of paper and paperboard was second only to the United States, ranking second in the world; the import of paper raw materials and products amounted to more than US $7 billion, creating a beautiful future for China's petroleum polyethylene catalyst and new products, and together with oil and steel, they were the three categories of products with the largest import exchange; by 2015, China's total consumption of paper and paperboard will reach more than 80million tons, making The paper industry requires a total investment of about 490billion yuan, with an average annual investment of about 30billion yuan. "

at this stage of general overcapacity in the processing and manufacturing industry, the paper industry has become one of several industries with growing demand, which has stimulated the investment enthusiasm of all parties and made the Chinese market a stage for Chinese and foreign paper enterprises to compete

for a long time, most domestic paper-making enterprises are small and medium-sized enterprises with a production capacity of only tens of thousands of tons, with small scale and backward technology. Their products are mainly medium and low-grade. Over the years, there has been disorderly competition, and their profits have been extremely thin; In the field of high-end paper products, some experts estimate that the return on investment is as high as 30% to 40%. With the rapid growth of the market demand for high-grade paper products, its special requirements for raw materials, capital and technology have also become prominent, becoming a "stumbling block" for domestic enterprises to update their products and occupy the emerging market. As a result, since the 1990s, several giant products of the world paper industry began to flood the Chinese market, especially in the field of high-end paper products, and imported products accounted for an absolute share. Li ruodong, manager of the planning and Development Office of Shandong Chenming Paper Group, said, "we faced great pressure on imported products long ago. In this market, we have long been in line with international standards."

due to the importance of the paper industry to the national economy, China once had certain restrictions on foreign investment in the paper industry. On April 1st, 2001, the state launched the new catalogue for the guidance of foreign investment industries. Except for a few varieties such as banknote paper and stamp paper, the construction of chemical wood pulp, raw material forest base and some high-end paper and paperboard production were included in the catalogue for encouraging foreign investment. For a time, it triggered an upsurge of large-scale foreign investment in the paper industry

it is understood that up to now, more than 10 multinational paper companies have set up factories in China, and all of them have coincidentally concentrated their investment projects in high-end paper products such as all wood pulp double offset paper, low weight coated paper, coated paper and so on. Among them, UPM of Finland (up makes PEKK materials for 3D printing be used in aerospace and industrial utilization for the first time m), Stora Enso, a joint venture between Finland and Sweden, and app of Indonesia all rank among the top in the international paper industry

"at first, we faced the product impact of international paper giants. Now they have invested directly in setting up factories in China, and the war has reached the door." Li ruodong said. The statistics of relevant departments also show that foreign-funded enterprises occupy an absolute leading position in the field of domestic high-end paper products: at present, 50% of the total domestic high-end cultural paper is imported, and the products of sole proprietorship and joint ventures account for 3/4. After in-depth discussion/4, domestic enterprises only occupy 1/4 of the market share

swallow the chicken threat of the paper industry

although the "money scene" of the paper industry is attractive, Zhao Wei, Secretary General of the paper Association, believes that "as a technology, capital, and human intensive industry, the paper industry is still a 'pity to abandon for domestic investors, with more investment than enough power'."

the reason is very simple. The paper industry has the characteristics of high input, high output, large investment and high risk. Guoyongxin of China Light Industry Information Center once conducted in-depth research on the paper industry, He introduced the investment requirements of high-end paper products to: "Taking 10000 tons of high-end pulp and paper production capacity as an example, it takes about 150million yuan to 200million yuan to invest from wood to pulp, and at least 100million yuan to invest from pulp to finished paper, that is, about 250million yuan to 300million yuan is needed for every 10000 tons of finished paper production capacity. In addition, the paper industry also has high requirements for large-scale production. The usual starting point of large-scale production capacity in the world is at least 300000 tons of pulp mills, and at least 150000 tons of paper mills Tons
