Accelerated integration of nitrogen fertilizer industry, new nitrogen fertilizer development
The rising prices of raw materials in the nitrogen fertilizer industry have become an indisputable fact, ranging from natural gas, coal, electricity, to labor and environmental protection costs. In the context of tight monetary conditions and inflation, all costs are raised. Faced with high costs and fierce market competition, the nitrogen fertilizer industry in 2012 will accelerate integration. The market will become more standardized, the policy will become more stable, and the pattern will become more and more invented.
In 2011, under the circumstances of various cost increases and the international financial situation is not optimistic, China's nitrogen fertilizer market department was as sensitive as in previous years, despite limited exports and severe overcapacity, despite the dealers' prices for previous years. The ups and downs of the ups and downs remain at the forefront, and the market is dominated. However, the domestic market has a mature pattern of stable prices and stable market, allowing them to gradually flatten their hearts, which can be said to be the “Twelfth Five-Year Plan” for China’s nitrogenous fertilizer industry. A good head.
As we all know, whether it is production, consumption or influence, nitrogen fertilizer has always been the leader of the fertilizer industry. As a “barometer” of the market changes in the national fertilizer industry, every move of the nitrogen fertilizer industry will affect the trend of the entire fertilizer industry. However, due to the unreasonable industrial layout in recent years, the market turmoil caused by the relative overcapacity has not only made dealers uncomfortable, manufacturers have suffered, and lost business, upside down sales have been the reflection of most manufacturers. Therefore, the status of nitrogen fertilizer as the “big boss” of the fertilizer industry has gradually existed in name only.
Facing the difficult status of the industry, accelerating the adjustment of the structural industry has become the future development of the nitrogen fertilizer industry. In view of the traditional nitrogen fertilizer products with overcapacity, low profit and low utilization rate, in recent years, new nitrogen fertilizers have flourished, and new products such as nitrogen fertilizer, new nitrogen fertilizer, slow release urea and peptide urea have rushed to the market. The emergence of these new products not only enriches the market, but also seeks new ways for production companies to transform their product mix and enhance their core competitiveness. At the same time, differentiated new products are favored by dealers once they are listed, which not only changes their serious homogenization sales status, but also brings them considerable economic profits. As the ultimate consumer, farmers are full of expectations for new nitrogen fertilizers. Most farmers expect to change the current urea occupation of the majority of the nitrogen fertilizer market. They hope to have more new options, and the fertilizer efficiency of this new product is longer than urea. It is higher than urea and has certain drought and insect control qualities. Of course, they will choose to apply. In 2011, China's nitrogen fertilizer industry has emerged a number of enterprises and new products with advantages. While enriching the market and enhancing competitiveness, it seems to indicate that China's new nitrogen fertilizer market will usher in new development opportunities in 2012. However, while enjoying the thriving development of new nitrogen fertilizers, it should also be noted that new nitrogen fertilizers require a process from the construction of standard systems to the improvement of market supervision.
In 2012, in addition to the new development of new nitrogen fertilizers, national policies and large-scale mergers and acquisitions of the industry will also promote the stable development of China's nitrogen fertilizer industry. From the perspective of tariff policy, the urea tariff policy in 2012 is basically the same as that in 2011, but it is clearly stipulated that the benchmark price does not include tax, which reduces the export threshold in disguise, which is a long-term positive for the urea industry in 2012. At the same time, with the rise of several large nitrogen fertilizer groups such as Hubei Yihua, Jinmei, Yangmei and CNOOC, the integration road in the industry is quietly taking place, facing the increasing industrial concentration, cost advantage, market advantage and scale advantage. The advantages of capital and raw materials continue to appear in these large enterprises. It is precisely because of the continuous strengthening of the concentration of nitrogen fertilizer industry, the domestic nitrogen fertilizer market is becoming more standardized, policies and prices are becoming more stable, and the industrial structure is becoming more and more accurate.
Li Shousheng, chairman of China National Nitrogen Fertilizer Industry Association, said that in 2012, China’s nitrogen fertilizer industry plan said that the focus of the industry in 2012 will be to vigorously promote technological progress, accelerate industrial restructuring, focus on energy conservation and emission reduction, and innovate agrochemical services. . The nitrogen fertilizer industry must adhere to the fertilizer, get out of the fertilizer, and get out of a new way of fattening.
