At present, China's annual valve market turnover is as high as 50 billion yuan, of which more than 10 billion yuan is occupied by foreign valve companies. According to China's "Eleventh Five-Year" development plan, China's valve industry, especially the valve enterprises focusing on the two major markets of water and construction, have compared with international advanced enterprises in energy conservation, environmental protection, safety and sustainable development strategies. gap.
It is understood that the main performance is: the scale of China's enterprises is small, the technical level is low, and the brand competitiveness is still weak. If these problems are not solved in time, it will not only greatly affect the overall supporting level of China's valve industry, but also restrict the healthy growth of China's valve industry. Integration and reorganization is the process that must be passed by the Chinese valve industry. Only through the large-scale and large-scale integration of high-quality assets, and the rapid formation of a strong group, can brand-name products become the dominant position in the Chinese valve market, in order to ensure the urgent needs of Chinese users for medium and high-end products.
During the “Eleventh Five-Year Plan” period, the total demand for domestic valves was forecast to be 34.5 billion yuan. In addition, according to the needs of China's national economic development, the development of valves focuses on the development of new valve products for major projects such as thermal power, nuclear power, hydropower, large petrochemicals, oil and gas gathering and transportation pipelines, coal liquefaction and metallurgy. While developing the above new products, we should pay attention to the promotion and application of new process technologies, such as the application of vacuum electron beam welding new technology and shear extrusion technology when developing high temperature and high pressure power stations and nuclear power plant valves using forged welded structures; developing large diameter pipes for long distance pipelines. The overall ball valve uses integral welding technology.
Valves are indispensable fluid control equipment for various sectors of the national economy such as petroleum, chemical, power station, long-distance pipeline, shipbuilding, nuclear industry, various cryogenic engineering, aerospace and marine oil recovery.
After more than 20 years of development, there are more than 6,000 valve companies of various sizes in China, and the number of enterprises ranks first in the world, of which 900 have an annual output value of more than 5 million yuan. From the product situation, China's valve industry has been able to produce more than a dozen major categories of products, such as ball valves, gate valves, butterfly valves, globe valves, safety valves, check valves, solenoid valves, plunger valves, drain valves, angle seat valves, Traps, emergency shut-off valves, etc.
The National Development and Reform Commission issued Announcement No. 11 of 2008, and 351 new industry standards were launched on July 1, 2008, including 253 mechanical industry standards, involving 30 projects in the pump and valve industry. With the support of national policies, the valve industry will maintain a good development trend in 2008-2009. It is predicted that the total sales of China's valves in 2010 will be 6.736 billion yuan, the total export value of valves will be 2.009 billion US dollars, and the total import of valves will be 3.632 billion US dollars.
