Analysis on economic operation of Weifang salt industry in Shandong Province in the first half of 2015

wallpapers Industry 2020-12-09

From January to June 2015, the salt enterprises in Weifang City of Shandong Province actively focused on the production of raw salt in spring, achieving stable growth of crude salt output and steady improvement of quality.

The whole industry should correctly deal with the adverse effects brought by the decline of crude salt price, especially with the successive introduction and implementation of policies to support the development of salt industry by the governments of various production areas, the price of raw salt has risen slightly.

The production and sales of salt chemical products remained balanced.

The price of bromine rose reasonably under the influence of international factors.

The price of other salt chemical products fluctuated little, and the economic operation of the industry remained relatively stable.

However, due to overcapacity and insufficient market demand, the downward pressure on the salt industry economy was still large. 1. The output of raw salt increased, sales remained flat, and inventory increased significantly.

By the end of June, the city had produced 4.

62 million tons of raw salt, up 8.

5% year on year. 5.71 million tons of crude salt were sold, a year-on-year decrease of 1.

6%, and the output was still greater than the sales of 1.

03 million tons.

the stock of raw salt was 4.

29 million tons, with a year-on-year increase of 57.6%. The main reason for the increase of output is that the meteorological conditions are favorable to the production of crude salt.

Due to the less precipitation in winter last year, the salt storage in brine base and overwintering pool was better than that in previous years, which laid a solid foundation for the production in spring this year.

During the spring production this year, the weather continued to be dry and the evaporation was high.

According to the statistics of Yangkou salt field meteorological station, the accumulated evaporation from January to June was about 1023 mm, basically the same as last year.

the accumulated precipitation was about 124 mm, with a year-on-year decrease of about 50 mm.

The salt making enterprises make full use of the favorable opportunity of drought, less rain and high evaporation, pay close attention to brine production and preservation, strengthen crystallization management, and adhere to the implementation of "new deep long" process, which effectively improves the unit yield and realizes the increase of output.

The reasons for the decrease in the sales volume of raw salt were as follows: first, at the end of last year, the two soda enterprises seized the opportunity of low salt price and increased the stock of raw salt, thus reducing the purchase volume in the first half of the year.

second, some of the two soda enterprises stopped production for maintenance, and the amount of salt used decreased.

third, due to the low salt price, some large enterprises took the lead in limiting sales and protecting the price.

fourth, the salt price rose slightly in June, and the two soda enterprises reduced the purchase volume and consumption Stock or use self-produced raw salt. 2. Crude salt price bottomed out and rebounded.

From the beginning of last year, the price of crude salt dropped from 200 yuan / ton to the bottom in May this year.

The price of crude salt dropped to 70-80 yuan / ton, which seriously affected the industry economy.

Since the second half of last year, salt prices have been hanging upside down, salt enterprises are facing difficulties in operation and industry losses.

The municipal and County salt industry authorities and the municipal salt industry association actively strive for the support of the governments of all production areas.

They have successively introduced supportive policies such as salt storage subsidies, delaying the collection of salt resource tax, and establishing salt industry funds to support the healthy development of salt manufacturing enterprises.

The introduction and implementation of various supporting policies have helped salt prices to bottom and rise slightly.

In June, the price of standard salt in the city reached 95 yuan / ton (excluding tax), and the price of general salt reached about 85 yuan / ton.

Compared with well salt and imported salt, the city's crude salt still has a strong cost and price advantage in real estate sales. 3. The total production and sales of salt chemical products decreased, the inventory increased, and the bromine price kept stable.

From January to June, the city's total production of salt chemical products was 130000 tons, a year-on-year decrease of 10.

7%, the sales of salt chemical products was 136000 tons, a year-on-year decrease of 6.

9%, and the stock of salt chemical products was 25000 tons, with a year-on-year increase of 20%.

Among them, the cumulative production of bromine was 31000 tons, with a year-on-year decrease of 11.4%. the sales of bromine were 33000 tons, with a year-on-year decrease of 3.3%. the bromine inventory was 1778 tons, with a year-on-year decrease of 17.5%. From January to March, due to the continuous downturn in the market trend of bromine downstream products, the price of bromine has been running at a low level.

In April, affected by international factors, the price of bromine rose from 17000 yuan / ton at the beginning of the year (including tax, the same below) to about 20000 yuan / ton.

However, due to the continuous decline of bromine content in underground brine, the production and sales of bromine will show a downward trend. 4. The economic indicators of the industry remained stable.

From January to June, the sales revenue of salt industry in the whole city reached 5.

32 billion yuan, with a year-on-year growth of 7.2%. Among them, the raw salt sales revenue was 330 million yuan, a year-on-year decrease of 51.

6% (mainly due to the low price of raw salt).

the sales revenue of salt chemical products was 4.

82 billion yuan, with a year-on-year increase of 5.

9% (mainly due to the launch of new projects).

the sales revenue of other products was 160 million yuan, with a year-on-year decrease of 66.4%. The industrial added value of the whole industry was 790 million yuan, a year-on-year decrease of 5.21%. The two taxes have been put into storage, with a year-on-year decrease of 11.7%. The downward pressure of the healthy development of the industry economy is still heavy, and Weifang salt industry is facing new requirements of industrial transformation and development.

Considering various factors, it is expected that the production and sales of raw salt in the whole year will be flat compared with last year, and the production and sales of bromine and other salt chemical products will be basically balanced.

With the introduction and implementation of the policy of supporting the development of salt industry by the governments of various production areas and the continuous enhancement of sales rationality of salt enterprises, it is expected that the prices of raw salt and bromine will rise steadily in the second half of the year.
