The 4th Guangzhou International Purchasing Fair officially opened in Pazhou on 14th. Ceramic exhibitors who attended the fair said they were optimistic about the development prospects of Guangdong ceramics industry this year. In addition, although the current technology can produce clean ceramics, it is difficult to popularize widely in domestic ceramics industry due to cost constraints.
Jinshengtao Ceramics Manager Lin Cuibi said that their products are mainly sold in China, so last year’s overall sales were good, not affected by the financial crisis too much, although sales in this quarter are general, but the sales prospects for 2010 are very good.
Zhong Hanguang, manager of Kama Ceramics Export Department, also agrees with this view. He believes that the development of the ceramic industry in 2009 is better than that in 2008, which belongs to the stage of recovery and recovery. He believes that the prospects for 2010 are more optimistic.
Zhong Hanguang said that ceramic brands, mainly for domestic sales, had little impact during the financial crisis last year, but sales of ceramic brands, mainly for export, declined by an average of about 30% in the same period. In fact, the market capacity of ceramics is very large. Understanding Foshan ceramics understands Foshan ceramics net in ceramic industry. This information is transferred from Foshan ceramics net. However, due to the impact of the financial crisis, the overall demand of the ceramic market in 2008 and 09 has been suppressed. It is expected that this part of the suppressed demand will be released in 2010.
Talking about the high pollution and high energy consumption of ceramic industry, a ceramic exhibitor admitted that some production equipment can reduce 80% pollution in the production process, so as to produce clean ceramic products. However, these technologies and equipment are expensive, and China’s ceramics are still on the low-cost and high-yield competitive line, so these technologies and equipment are difficult to popularize in China at present. As for high energy consumption, the exhibitor acknowledged that it was inevitable.
It is reported that the Guangzhou International Purchasing Fair is held at the same time as the China Import and Export Commodity Fair in spring and autumn every year. The theme of this Expo mainly includes building materials, hardware tools, ceramics, knitted goods, furniture and household accessories, oil paintings, gifts, crafts and so on.
