January 4, 2008

[China coating information] unconsciously, the calendar of 2007 has turned to the last few pages. Looking back on the journey of the coating industry this year, everyone in the coating industry has been struggling and sighing all the way. This year is a very difficult year for the coating industry. The rise in crude oil prices, rising costs, toy recalls, foreign mergers and acquisitions, and major adjustments in enterprise personnel channels have had a long-lasting impact on domestic coating enterprises. However, many people in the paint industry survived. In the face of the difficult market, people have learned a lot of experience through summary, made great efforts and achieved certain results, and are better able to face the twists and turns of the paint industry in the future. Local coating associations and coating media also work together with many coating enterprises to provide suggestions for standardizing the coating industry market and promoting the development of the coating industry. Summarizing the situation of the coating industry this year, we found that the coating industry has experienced several major events this year, which have had a great impact on the coating industry. At the same time, the paint industry shows the following major development trends

this is the first time that China Brand Research Institute published the list of "top 500 Chinese science and technology brands" after formulating the "provincial science and technology brand evaluation measures" in August 2006. According to Zheng Zhanwei, President of China Brand Research Institute, the top 500 Chinese science and technology famous brands are selected from 31 provincial-level science and technology famous brands in the country. The elected enterprises can publicize according to the relevant national policies and regulations, laying the foundation for the future declaration of world famous brands, Chinese iconic brands and other honors

1. With the interaction between domestic and foreign enterprises, many domestic coating enterprises began to go abroad and expand the markets of Russia, Southeast Asia, Central Asia and so on.

in October, China Resources paint group and powerful real estate developers in the Far East of Russia jointly promoted China Resources architectural paint and home decoration wood paint. The internal and external wall products of China Resources paint were used in real estate projects in the Far East of Russia for the first time, marking the successful entry of China Resources paint into the Russian real estate industry and its landmark achievements in international business. In November, Jiangsu Chenguang coating Co., Ltd. and Russia Kessler Co., Ltd. jointly developed "nano silver antibacterial environmental protection interior wall emulsion paint", which was included in the Sino Russian intergovernmental scientific and technological cooperation plan. China and Russia will jointly invest and establish a new paint enterprise integrating paint research and development and production in St. Petersburg, Russia, with a production workshop of 300 square meters alone

in November, Guangdong coating Association organized coating enterprises to visit Vietnam for investigation and negotiation. He Bingfu, President of Guangdong coating industry association, Nguyen you Giang, deputy director of planning and Investment Department of Quang Ninh province, Vietnam, and nearly 120 representatives of coating enterprises from the two provinces attended the exchange meeting. The two sides discussed the cooperation prospects of coating industry in the two provinces in depth. This inspection laid a good foundation for some coating enterprises in Guangdong to explore the international market and take the route of internationalization and cooperation

later, the Minister of construction and the Deputy Minister of investment and trade of the Republic of Uzbekistan led the government delegation of the Republic of Uzbekistan to investigate the coating industry in Guangdong together with the personnel of Guangdong coating Association. Among them, China Resources, Xingguan and other coating enterprises were invited to become long-term suppliers of building materials projects in Uzbekistan

2. The paint industry market, construction and testing are becoming more and more standardized

the chaos of the paint market is known as the biggest obstacle to the development of the paint industry.

Beijing Building Materials Association issued fire retardant coating industry rules and regulations to regulate the fire retardant coating market

3. Foreign investment in China has always attracted attention. However, from a comprehensive perspective, the number and amount of foreign investment in the coating industry and related projects this year are amazing. Undoubtedly, with the operation of these projects, the domestic coating and chemical raw materials industry will face greater competitive pressure
