The hottest rubber price soared, forcing tire Shan

The soaring rubber price forced tire Shandong enterprises to "save themselves"

rolling. The soaring rubber price finally made tire enterprises unable to sit still anymore. According to the investigation and interview, since the eve of the new year, the seven major tire giants in China's tire industry have reported to the State Council through the China Rubber Industry Association and requested to regulate the price of natural rubber, Shandong Rubber Industry Association recently prepared to recruit some tire representative enterprises in the province to discuss countermeasures. Facing the unprecedented severe domestic and international market situation, Shandong tire enterprises are "self-help" by developing high value-added products and actively expanding the production of synthetic rubber while calling for government intervention

the more work starts, the more losses will be made

"the price of natural rubber has now exceeded the $7000 mark, and some enterprises have stopped production... 6. Impact strength" in the impression of Xu Guangcheng, quality director of Cooper Chengshan (Shandong) Tire Co., Ltd., their company bought a batch of natural rubber in September last year, when the price was about $3000 per ton. By November last year, the price soared to more than $4400, less than two months, The increase is close to 50%. Now, the price per ton has already exceeded $6000, approaching the $7000 mark

"now the more work is started, the more losses are made. The price of natural rubber is too high for enterprises to bear, and the price trend has completely deviated from the fundamentals." Zheng Yongxiang, vice president of Shandong Rubber Industry Association, said with concern. Shandong's rubber consumption accounts for nearly half of the country, and the vast majority depends on imports. Due to the fierce competition in the tire industry, Shandong tire enterprises are in a difficult situation. Linglong, triangle and other large enterprises have to use the Spring Festival holiday to extend the shutdown time of enterprises, so as to reduce the consumption of natural rubber and reduce the cost of raw materials; Many small and medium-sized enterprises are even more unsustainable, and there are many people who limit production and stop production. According to the statistics of China Rubber Industry Association, last month, the profit of the domestic tire industry fell by 22% year-on-year, with a loss of 26%

according to Zheng Yongxiang's analysis, on the one hand, the domestic automobile production has increased significantly. The former refers to the friction in a mixed state with dry friction and boundary friction at the same time, which has led to a sharp increase in rubber demand; On the other hand, affected by the abnormal climate, the rubber production in Yunnan and Southeast Asia fell, which led to a sharp rise in rubber prices and will run at a high level for a long time. He believed that with the continuous soaring of rubber prices, large-scale losses in the domestic rubber processing industry this year were a foregone conclusion

each shows his ability to save himself

in the face of the severe situation, tire manufacturers generally hope that the country can improve the national reserve regulation mechanism of natural rubber and cancel the import tariff of natural rubber. However, insiders believe that this is only a short-term self-help measure in case of emergency, and the effect is very limited. To get rid of the current dilemma, we must improve the technical content and added value of products

it is understood that Linglong group has recently launched the project of low profile anti slippery and low noise ultra-high performance radial car tire, which has filled the domestic gap and reached the international advanced level, with an annual output of 2million. All products have passed the EU ECE quality certification after being tested by German Rhine, American STL and other third-party international authorities. The main performances of the tire, such as wet skid resistance, durability, noise, etc., are better than the world-class tires compared, and the cost performance is high, so it has strong competitiveness in the international market. According to Wang Feng, general manager of the company, all its products are currently exported to more than 40 countries and regions such as Europe, America, Japan and Australia, and are used in Mercedes Benz, BMW and other luxury cars, breaking the monopoly of foreign tire giants in this high-end technology field

triangle group recently developed the largest giant engineering radial tire in China, with a single tire weight of 4.5 tons, an outer diameter of 3.6 meters, a width of 1.2 meters, and a maximum load of 103 tons. 2. Cleaning and cleaning: the advent of triangle giant engineering radial tires has broken the long-term technical blockade and market monopoly of foreign companies. At present, it has successfully provided supporting facilities for many world-famous construction machinery manufacturers, such as Caterpillar, Terex, Volvo, Case New Holland, Liebherr and so on

in addition, many enterprises in Shandong Province have also turned their attention to synthetic rubber, a substitute for natural rubber. According to zhanghongmin, chairman of Shandong Rubber Industry Association, at present, two enterprises in Shandong have successfully put into production synthetic rubber: Maoming Luhua Chemical Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Shandong Luhua Hongjin Chemical Co., Ltd., with an annual output of 15000 tons of synthetic rubber project; Qingdao ICOS new materials Co., Ltd. has a synthetic rubber project with an annual output of 30000 tons. In addition, Shandong Luhua Hongjin Chemical Co., Ltd. has started construction of a 50000 ton synthetic rubber project in Zibo Chemical Park, which is expected to be put into production in early 2012; The synthetic rubber project of Dipai new materials Co., Ltd., invested and constructed by the national tire process and control engineering technology research center, is expected to be put into operation in the second half of this year, with a planned production capacity of 100000 tons and an annual output of 30000 tons in the first phase
