Building energy conservation is imperative, polyurethane industry most benefit
From a global perspective, building energy consumption accounts for about 30% of the total energy consumption of the whole society. At present, China is the world's largest construction market, building is not only a large energy consuming, but also the main battlefield of energy conservation - polyurethane cushion.
It is imperative to promote building energy efficiency
Vigorously promote the building energy efficiency, will inevitably lead to the rapid development of rigid polyurethane foam industry. According to related reports, China has the world's largest construction market, and now more than 95% of China's new construction is still high-energy construction. According to the specific goal of building energy conservation in the urban and rural housing construction department, by 2010, 50% of the new urban buildings in the country will be energy-saving, and by 2020, the construction of new buildings in the economically developed areas of the north and the coastal areas will achieve energy saving of 65%. Domestic rigid foam in the construction field of thermal insulation materials in the proportion of about 10%. Therefore, we can see that the use of rigid polyurethane foam increased year by year, the overall competition is more intense, the future of rigid polyurethane foam industry considerable development.
Polyurethane industry will benefit most
As an excellent polymer material, polyurethane has become the fifth largest plastic after polyethylene, polyvinyl chloride, polypropylene and polystyrene. The total output of polyurethane has exceeded 10 million tons / year. In recent years, China's polyurethane industry has made great progress, and has been widely used in refrigerators, containers, leather, shoes and textiles and other fields. In Europe and America and other developed countries, about 49% of building thermal insulation material is polyurethane material, but in our country, this proportion is still less than 10%.
Polyurethane will be widely used in the development of national economy, and its scale of application will continue to expand. Rigid foam polyurethane insulation material will be widely used in building energy efficiency, automotive, home appliances, textile and other industries. China's urbanization process has accelerated and the investment in high-speed railways has increased, which has brought huge market opportunities for the polyurethane industry. China has become the world polyurethane production and consumption country, the majority of raw materials and products, production of the world, but the per capita consumption, compared with the developed countries there is still large gap, low consumption of polyurethane. Moreover, at present, the main polyurethane raw materials production capacity rapid expansion, industry overcapacity, pressure has increased significantly. Therefore, through the product transformation and upgrading to expand polyurethane applications, not only is the needs of the downstream market, but also the inherent needs of the development of the industry.
Polyurethane industry should seize the opportunity, unswervingly push forward industrial upgrading, and meet the needs of the national economy and the people's livelihood as a restructuring of the party. Because of the rapid development of building energy conservation in China, it is expected that the market of rigid foam polyurethane insulation material used for building thermal insulation will be greatly improved.
As the domestic building energy conservation industry started late, the overall industry maturity is low, large enterprises are less, the industry concentration is low, leading to the overall industry is more competitive, the situation is more chaotic. However, with the development of the industry will be more and more standardized, and some mixed products will be eliminated.
According to the new demand of the daily life field, the enterprises with polyurethane as raw material have developed a lot of green environmental protection products. China's polyurethane industry will pay close attention to the new needs of the field of livelihood products, I believe there will be more polyurethane products as raw materials to decorate people's green life. In the future, with the implementation of green buildings and a large number of applications in many fields, the polyurethane industry will be expected to usher in rapid growth!
