Valve industry is an important branch of our general machinery. As the key equipment of fluid control, its products are widely used in petroleum, chemical, metallurgy, electric power, urban construction, environmental protection and other industries. At present, the valve production industry is in a very favorable development opportunity. This is because:
1、 The state-owned economy has been developing steadily. Investment in fixed assets has gradually expanded. In particular, several century projects such as "west to East Gas Transmission", "west to East power transmission" and "south to North Water Diversion" projects need a large number of valve products;
2、 With the entry of WTO, the decrease of international trade threshold and the adjustment of product structure of developed countries, China is gradually becoming the largest processing plant in the world. The processing and manufacturing of valve products are facing greater development space.
So how to seize this strategic opportunity to speed up the development of valve industry. Professionals in the industry have made an analysis from the following aspects:
1、 We should actively promote the joint reorganization among enterprises and create a number of enterprise groups with scale and grade as soon as possible.
At present, there are more than 5000 manufacturing enterprises in the valve industry. Only 7 enterprises have annual sales revenue of more than 50 million yuan, 3 enterprises with more than 100 million yuan, and no enterprise with more than 200 million yuan. The domestic market share is only more than 2% of China Nuclear suvalve, and the rest are less than 1%. This kind of enterprise scale is difficult to produce an impact in the market, and it is even more difficult to compete with international well-known enterprises in the same industry. To change this situation as soon as possible, in addition to the growth factors of enterprises, the most effective way is to realize the capital expansion of enterprises through the combination, merger and reorganization among enterprises, so as to further expand the market share and remain invincible in the competition. This is a popular practice in the field of international economy, and also the direction of valve industry development in the future. On this issue, we should emancipate our minds and break the boundaries of regions, ownership and traditional division of labor in accordance with the requirements of the 16th National Congress of the Communist Party of China. As long as there is the possibility of alliance among enterprises, they can boldly try to create a number of enterprise groups with an output value of more than 500 million yuan or even 1 billion yuan in 3-5 years.
2、 We should attach importance to the adjustment of product structure, be brave in technological innovation, and develop products with high added value and international leading level.
China's valve industry has been able to produce more than ten categories of products. Such as gate valve, globe valve, ball valve, butterfly valve, safety valve, check valve, throttle valve, plug valve, pressure reducing valve, diaphragm valve, drain valve, emergency shut-off valve, solenoid valve, etc., the maximum operating temperature is 570 ℃, the minimum is - 196 ℃, the maximum pressure is 600MPa, and the maximum diameter is 5350mm. Although these products strongly support the domestic economic construction, we should be aware that most of our products are of general technical content or labor-intensive products, and rarely have the international leading level. It is a pity that all our valve enterprises have failed in the recent bidding for the main pipeline of West to east gas transmission. as a warning for the future. In order to revitalize the valve industry, the national industry must carry out technological innovation and adjust the product structure. It is necessary to have the courage to research and develop valve products with high technology content and high labor added value, such as control valve and automatic valve, three-way confluence valve, three-way diverter valve, safety valve; metal hard seal, fully welded, high parameter and large-diameter valve of ball valve And supercritical c12-a alloy steel valve for power station. There are several ways to carry out technological innovation, research and development of new products. One is through cooperation with scientific research institutions of colleges and universities. For example, the main steam control valve of power station boiler developed by Kaifeng high pressure valve factory and "3D" company affiliated to Chinese Academy of Sciences is a product with international leading level. Its "pressure drop" is much lower than the international standard, which has a very bright future in the power station industry; the other is foreign cooperation In the form of technology introduction, the cooperation between Zigong High Pressure Valve Co., Ltd. and simbilian company in Italy has shortened the gap between our ball valve products and foreign countries. In addition to the above practice, enterprises with conditions can develop independently.
3、 We should implement diversified sales strategy, open up international market and expand product export.According to the statistics of China Valve Association, at present, the production capacity of our valve industry is seriously surplus, about 40% of the production capacity is empty. In the face of such a huge overcapacity, the most effective way is to carry out diversified sales strategy and vigorously explore the international market. At present, the international market exports about 6-7 billion Valves a year, while China exports 150 million Valves a year, less than 2% of the total. There is a great potential here. To open up the international market, we should first pay attention to the cultivation of foreign trade talents, and have a group of foreign trade professionals who can operate and understand foreign languages; secondly, they should learn to use the Internet and information technology to make wide use of customers to capture business opportunities; thirdly, they can cooperate with some domestic foreign trade companies to expand their exports through their channels; fourthly, enterprises with conditions can set up sales outlets or set up factories abroad. In recent years, Shandong Yidu valve factory and Suzhou 526 plant have achieved market diversification. The shortage of domestic products has been reduced, and the proportion of domestic products has been greatly increased. In order to open up the international market, we should pay attention to our own advantages and choose the right export products. At present, the export of labor-intensive products such as general valves is mainly used. In addition, the export prospect of semi-finished products of rough embryo castings is also very good.
4、 At present, China's valve industry is in a new round of alternation and reorganization period.
The proportion of state-owned enterprises has been declining year by year, while private enterprises and foreign-funded enterprises have developed rapidly. It is estimated that the proportion of state-owned enterprises and private-owned enterprises will not account for 30% in the next few years. At present, private enterprises in Wenzhou are developing rapidly, and a considerable number of enterprises have certain scale and strength, such as bertley, Yongyi, Zhejiang Weiduli, etc. At present, due to historical reasons, most state-owned enterprises in the industry are heavily burdened, inefficient mechanism and difficult to operate, but many enterprises still have the advantages of equipment, talents, technology and brand. We should solve the current difficulties through deepening reform and institutional innovation, fully activate the stock assets, realize the diversification of property rights, and establish a modern enterprise system. For the rapid development of private enterprises, although there is no institutional defect and historical burden, but its development process should pay attention to the improvement of enterprise management level, the implementation of management innovation, and avoid falling into the "family" and "paternalistic" management conventions. In short, the valve industry is full of hope. As long as we take the spirit of the 16th National Congress of the Communist Party of China as the guideline and implement the thought of "Three Represents", we will certainly be able to revitalize the valve industry and make contributions to the economic construction of our country and the realization of the goal of well-off society in an all-round way.
