The hot market in the PVC profiles and doors and windows industry has stimulated a new investment boom, and the injection of new capital has also brought a strong impetus to the development of the entire industry. It is estimated that by the end of this year, 1200-1300 extrusion equipment will be invested in PVC profile enterprises in China. However, China's PVC profile industry urgently needs to go international.
China is the world's largest PVC profile production base
At present, my country's PVC door and window processing and manufacturing capacity has reached 700 million square meters per year, and it is estimated that the annual application will exceed 450 million square meters, with a total output value of more than 100 billion yuan. PVC doors and windows account for about 35%-40% of the annual market demand.
2. Colored plastic doors and windows are favored by consumers
In recent years, colored PVC doors and windows have emerged as the times require, and are becoming more and more popular among consumers. Colored PVC doors and windows are new products after white PVC doors and windows, mainly to meet the increasingly diverse needs of architectural decoration.
Colored PVC doors and windows mainly depend on the color of raw materials used in PVC profiles, including film coating, co-extrusion, spraying, color process, etc. The color profile has red, yellow, blue, dark green, black, purple and other colors, which can produce simulated effects such as wood grain and metal marble. Compared with white PVC profile colored plastic doors and windows, colored plastic doors and windows have the advantages of novelty, convenient coordination, and various surface textures. It is precisely because of these advantages of colored doors and windows that people like them more and more.
However, the profiles produced by different coloring processes have different surfaces and properties, and their performance parameters are also different from ordinary white PVC profiles. Due to the lack of product standards for colored PVC profiles in China, it is impossible to measure the quality and performance level of colored PVC profiles. Therefore, the specifications and development of colored PVC doors and windows are bound to be greatly affected.
To solve this problem, the Plastic Doors and Windows Committee of the China Construction Metal Structure Association was tasked with preparing fence standards promulgated by the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development. To this end, Dalian Shide Group Co., Ltd., China Construction Metal Structure Association Plastic Doors and Windows Committee, National Chemical Building Materials Testing Center (Material Testing Department) and relevant units jointly compiled the "Unplasticized Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC-U) Color for Building Doors and Windows" Profiles" industry standard. RD.
3. PVC profiles favored by environmentally friendly chemical building materials
Polyvinyl chloride profiles are a new type of environmentally friendly chemical building materials, mainly used in building doors and windows, and are one of the important building materials in my country.
At present, with the development of my country's economy and the characteristics that winter and summer are more suitable for cold and hot regions, PVC profiles have basically formed two major production layouts. The products basically cover the low-end consumer market. More than half of the rural market in my country has been widely used, and the application and development momentum in rural areas are still developing rapidly.
According to the analysis of the "China Plastic Profile Industry Market Demand Forecast and Investment Strategic Planning Analysis Report 2014-2018", the promotion and application of PVC doors and windows in non-residential buildings is also very important, and the market potential is huge. Based on the excellent performance of PVC doors and windows, in the field of non-residential construction, it is estimated that after 2012, it will account for three-fifths of the total demand for non-residential construction doors and windows.
4. By 2020, sales of plastic doors and windows in Europe will increase by 225 million units.
Recently, the famous German research institution Ceresana published its latest research report on the application of PVC plastic doors and windows in the construction industry in the European market.
The report points out that as the construction industry in various countries gradually heats up, the European PVC plastic doors and windows market is expected to usher in a peak development period in the next few years. According to Seresana's forecast, by 2020, the sales of plastic doors and windows in the entire European market will increase by 225 million units.
Researchers say European countries have different requirements for door and window materials due to differences in climate and consumer preferences. However, plastics, especially PVC materials, play an important role in the European doors and windows market and are the preferred material for customers in the region. Data shows that more than 65% of window frames in Poland, Russia and Turkey are PVC, but Nordic countries prefer wooden window frames.
5. New choice of building materials: PVC ceiling profiles
PVC ceiling profile is a new type of decorative material developed in recent years. It uses polyvinyl chloride as raw material and is processed into enterprise-shaped profiles. It has the characteristics of light weight, simple installation, waterproof, moisture-proof, and insect-proof. Its surface morphology changes greatly, and it has good pollution resistance, cleaning, sound insulation and heat insulation properties. In particular, flame retardant materials are added to the new process to make it immediately extinguished from fire and safer to use. Due to its low cost and good decorative effect, it occupies an important position in home decorative ceiling materials and has become the dominant material for ceilings in bathrooms, kitchens, bathrooms, balconies and other ceilings.
