Aluminum composite panels: high-quality building materials hit Chinese famous brands

You must have seen buildings decorated with aluminum  composite panels for interior and exterior walls. Due to its excellent cost performance, light material, easy processing and molding, diverse and uniform colors, and resource conservation, aluminum  composite panels, a new type of ecological and environmentally friendly building material, are from top to bottom. Since its invention in the 1970s, it has been widely used in building curtain walls, interior decoration, advertising, automobile decoration, furniture manufacturing and other fields. Due to its extensive application in airports, large stadiums, theaters and other city landmarks, it has attracted much attention.

Gao Rui, deputy secretary-general of the Aluminum Composite Materials Branch of China Building Materials Industry Association, said excitedly in an interview with reporters that the inclusion of aluminum composite panels in the China Famous Brand Evaluation Catalog this year is the result of years of hard work. This is due to three reasons: it is a new type of ecological building material, environmentally friendly; its production and sales volume ranks first in the world; it has independent intellectual property rights, and its physical quality has reached the advanced level of similar international products.

The world’s largest producer and seller of aluminum composite panels

After entering the 21st century, with the rapid development of my country’s construction industry, especially the successful bid for the Beijing Olympic Games and the Shanghai World Expo, aluminum  composite panels are called by architects as the third generation of curtain walls after stone (ceramic bricks) and glass. Materials have been developed rapidly. According to statistics, there are 186 aluminum composite panel manufacturing enterprises nationwide, employing about 35,000 people, of which more than 80% are non-state-owned enterprises. In 2005, the industry realized a profit of 1.464 billion yuan, paid taxes of nearly 1 billion yuan, annual sales revenue of 11.258 billion yuan, and 32 enterprises with annual sales of more than 100 million yuan. In 2005, the output of aluminum composite panels was 125.1 million square meters, ranking first in the world, accounting for more than 80% of the world’s total output, and has become the world’s largest producer, consumer and exporter of aluminum composite panels.

The export of aluminum  composite panel products in my country has achieved substantial growth for several consecutive years. In 2005, the number of exporting countries and regions increased from 34 to more than 50, and some products have been exported to developed countries and regions in the world. In 2005, the export volume of aluminum composite composite panels reached 32.09 million square meters, an increase of 102% over the same period of the previous year; the export volume was 352.3 million US dollars, an increase of 113% over the previous year; The transition from self-produced and sold at the end of the last century to a large amount of export at the beginning of this century.

Industry concentration

After more than ten years of development, the aluminum composite panel industry achieved an output value of 12 billion yuan in 2005. In recent years, with an average annual growth rate of 31.25%, the aluminum composite panel industry has become a new economic growth point in the field of building materials for the national economy.

Along with the growth of the industry, a group of enterprises with the world’s leading scale in the same industry have emerged in terms of production capacity, production equipment, production technology, and product variety and quality. ShangHai XingJiYuan,JiangSu kingertai,  are among the best. These enterprises have advanced equipment, advanced management, and advanced technology, leading the development direction of the entire industry. The output of the top 10 enterprises with the largest aluminum composite composite panels accounted for about 36.13% of the total national output in 2005, and the industry concentration is high.

Some key enterprises continue to strengthen quality control and management. In 2005, according to the results of continuous sampling and testing for many years, the whole industry selected 20 “famous high-quality brands of aluminum composite panels in China”. These enterprises can produce high-quality aluminum composite panels and reach the international advanced level. .

The only country in the world with a national standard

In recent years, with the optimization and adjustment of industry and product structure and international technical exchanges, the technical level of my country’s aluminum composite panel industry has been greatly improved. Through research on the key technologies of aluminum composite panel production, assimilation and transformation of imported aluminum panel production equipment, and continuous development and innovation, my country has formed a set of “China’s aluminum composite panel production technology” with independent intellectual property rights. A country that imports and imports production technology and equipment gradually transforms into a country that exports production and technology. At present, my country’s complete sets of production equipment for aluminum composite panels have been exported to more than ten countries and regions in the world.

In recent years, my country’s aluminum composite panel industry has also developed patented technologies such as fire-resistant aluminum composite panels with a fire rating of A-level, roller-coated and printed colorful aluminum composite panels, and aluminum ceilings according to market requirements. The development has injected a strong vitality.

In order to ensure the product quality of my country’s aluminum composite panels, my country has formulated the only national standard for aluminum composite panels in the world. It plays an important active role in product quality control. Some countries also adopt Chinese national standards. The industry association also compiled and published the world’s first monograph on aluminum composite panels.

Famous brand strategy is the requirement of the industry facing the situation

The 10-year development of aluminum  composite panels shows that this new composite material has gradually been recognized by the market, and with the improvement of technology and the development of new products and new application fields, it also has greater market potential. Gurry said that if the industry can seize the opportunity, in the case of rapid increase in production capacity, ensure product quality, adjust the industrial structure, increase the proportion of high-end products, change the growth mode, solve the vicious competition in price, and take the road of sustainable development , then in the next 5 to 10 years, China’s aluminum  composite panel will occupy a larger market share in the international market, and its export volume will maintain its leading position in the world. The aluminum composite panel industry will develop towards large-scale enterprise, international market, product diversification, quality standardization and brand strategy.

Since most enterprises in China’s aluminum  composite panel industry have developed and grown in recent years, the enterprises and brands are not well-known in the world, and they are not brand-name products, so the export price is still comparable to that of foreign famous-brand products. big gap. The aluminum composite panel industry enters the evaluation of Chinese famous brand products. On the one hand, it can guide domestic consumption and protect national industries. At the same time, it is also conducive to increasing the export price of Chinese products and improving the ability of Chinese enterprises to participate in international competition.
