The hottest rubber price is crazy, and the tire in

  • Detail

The rubber price is crazy, and the tire industry has encountered a "Millennium cold"

for the tire industry, this winter is particularly cold

since the price of natural rubber rose all the way in the second half of last year, tire enterprises have no good life. On January 19, 2011, the main contract price of Tianjiao in Shanghai Futures Exchange was 39980 yuan/ton, breaking a new record

it is reported that rubber accounts for about 50% of the production cost of tires. Therefore, rubber price is one of the most sensitive factors affecting tire manufacturers. According to the tire branch of China Rubber Industry Association, the loss of the whole domestic tire industry has reached nearly 50%. For domestic tire enterprises, the price rise of natural rubber, which has hit a record high all the way, is tantamount to a "Millennium cold"

crazy glue price

on November 18, 2010, the Shanghai glue 1105 contract set a record of 38920 yuan, which was 3.5 times higher than the bottom price of 8650 yuan at the end of 2008. On September 19, 2011, the price of natural rubber hit a new record high at 39980 yuan per ton

natural rubber has always been the focus of capital speculation. Why is it crazy again and again

it is understood that at present, the main production areas of natural rubber in China have entered the cut-off period. The latest weekly inventory report of Shanghai Futures Exchange shows that the inventory is only 68675 tons, a year-on-year decrease of 175 tons. The cloud can be used up to 5 (1) in 2010, the inventory in the main production areas of natural rubber such as the South has been basically consumed, and in the early stage of cutting, the phenomenon that the dominant inventory in the market is in full swing is also rare

in addition, due to the reduction of supply caused by heavy rainfall in Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia, the spot rubber price has been rising all the way since October 2010, objectively speaking, constantly breaking new record highs. At present, China's tire enterprises consume 70% of natural rubber raw materials. The continuous rise in price consumption did not affect their purchasing activities. On the contrary, based on the expectation of tire price rise, dealers scrambled to increase inventory, which increased by more than 50% year-on-year in 2010. The limited natural rubber resources are being snatched by various demanders, which has further pushed up prices. Not long ago, Bridgestone bought RSS3 grade rubber from Thailand in February, with a CIF price of $5300 per ton

an auto tire supplier and marketer told that the strong demand is also an important force to boost the crazy rubber price. At present, the global automotive industry is recovering, and the growth rate of tire production cannot catch up with the demand of enterprises. According to the statistics released by the China Automobile Association, the number of cars in China exceeded 18million in 2010, an increase of 34% year-on-year, while the total tire production increased by 22%

at the same time, it is pointed out that the current price fluctuation of natural rubber is extremely abnormal, which is hyped by some interest groups at home and abroad. Shenjinrong, chairman of Hangzhou Zhongce Rubber Co., Ltd., told the China economic times, "generally speaking, the traditional demand for natural rubber is off-season from January to February every year. Coupled with the good weather in Thailand, Malaysia and other rubber producing countries this year, why will the price rise so sharply? It is mainly because of the factor of capital speculation. At present, international capital speculators are still betting that the price will continue to rise."

he compared China's natural rubber futures market to "Casino. He pointed out that at present, the largest natural rubber futures position is close to 200000 hands a day, the largest trading volume is close to 2million hands a day, and 1.5 million hands is a normal situation. The trading volume in a day is more than China's consumption in two years.

production suspension and price rise for survival.

the rise in natural rubber prices has led to the rise in synthetic rubber prices, and the cost pressure of tire enterprises has increased sharply, and the tire industry is in distress. Many tire enterprises must not We will not take measures such as stopping production, taking holidays and raising tire prices to alleviate the sharp increase in costs caused by the rise in the price of raw materials

it is understood that at present, seven major tire manufacturers in China are preparing to take advantage of the Spring Festival holiday and plan to continue the holiday. They will stop production for about half a month after the Spring Festival, so as to reduce the production of tires with expensive raw materials

previously, several international tire giants launched tire price hikes, which were announced to be implemented from January 1, 2011. This price rise tide involves almost all tire varieties, and the range is mostly 5% - 10%

Eduardo Minardi, chairman, CEO and President of Bridgestone tire Americas, said at the press conference: "we are facing a series of market pressures, including rising energy, transportation and raw material costs, so we must improve product prices."

the tire price rise has spread to China. Bridgestone raised the price of tires sold in China by 4% from the middle of December last year, and plans to carry out the second round of price increases in February this year. Mainland tire announced to increase the price of commercial vehicle tires in the replacement tire market in China from 2011, with an average increase of 5%

a tire agent told this newspaper that according to the current situation, the price of economy car tires in the market increased by about 50 yuan, and the price of truck tires increased by 150 yuan, gradually breaking the monopoly barrier of multinational brands. Zhong Shi, an expert in the automotive industry, pointed out that if the price of natural rubber is allowed to continue to rise and increase the cost of tires, it will inevitably affect the cost rise of vehicle manufacturers, which may affect consumers

nevertheless, these measures taken by tire enterprises still cannot alleviate the sharp increase in costs caused by the rise in raw material prices. According to the tire branch of China Rubber Industry Association, the profit of tire enterprises from January to November 2010 decreased by 22% year-on-year, with a loss of 26%, while the loss of the whole tire industry has been nearly 50%

on January 13, China Rubber Association urgently held a tire economic operation analysis meeting in Beijing, ready to request support from relevant national departments. Chenyaofeng, a representative of shuangqian Group Co., Ltd., said that the tire cost in the industry has increased by more than 50%, but the price increase did not exceed 20% in the whole year last year. Tire enterprises cannot quickly pass on the pressure of rising costs, and the enterprises "make it worse"

at the meeting, seven tire enterprises including Hangzhou Zhongce Rubber Co., Ltd., Fengshen Tire Co., Ltd., shuangqian Group Co., Ltd., Guizhou Tire Co., Ltd., Triangle Group Co., Ltd., Guangzhou South China Rubber Tire Co., Ltd., Shandong Linglong Tire Co., Ltd. agreed to solve the current difficulties of the tire industry The most direct and effective way to stabilize the price of natural rubber is for the state to put the national stored rubber on the market as soon as possible and cancel the import tariff of natural rubber as soon as possible

Shen Jinrong said, "in April last year, the state put 100000 tons of national storage rubber, which immediately stabilized the price of natural rubber."
