The overall rise of 20~50% in a year


The reporter was informed that since August 2017, the chemical raw material prices open "soar" mode, Zinc Oxide, zirconium silicate, frit, diluent, chlor alkali range skyrocketing, and prices continued until the end of 2017, during the various types of raw material prices have been rising "either, or flat dimensional stability." At the same time, all the other raw materials such as energy, sand, packing, hardware and other kinds of raw materials were all in a state of rising in 2017.


According to the insiders, in the past 2017, all kinds of raw materials, such as environmental protection and land and resources, were all in a state of rising prices, and the most powerful ones were mainly those with high environmental pollution or high monopoly degree.


According to reports, by the end of December 2017, chlor alkali, titanium dioxide, zirconium silicate, alumina, Zinc Oxide and other chemical raw materials supply prices in January compared to 2017, or between 25~50% range, most chemical raw material prices reached the highest value in November, and since December, in a weak adjustment phase.

However, there are Tao enterprises that, however, with the further normalization of taxes and fees, the tax expenditure of small and medium-sized enterprises in the past is actually not decreasing.

"From the current price, the cost of Guangdong ceramic enterprises is still within the range of affordability. If it is difficult to bear, it will definitely raise the price of ceramic tiles, and now there are not many enterprises that raise the price of ceramic tiles." Guangdong Enping a ceramic enterprises responsible person said to the reporter, although raw materials, fuels, cartons and other prices soaring, but compared to the peak in October, prices fell slightly, so the cost pressure is not too large, the largest downward pressure still from the market.

Shenyang Longsheng Thai Ceramic Group Co. Ltd. the production department general manager Chen Jian introduced, in 2017, prices of most products is obvious for carton.

Jiajiang: 10%~20%, the price of the product does not rise and fall

In 2017, the total production cost of Jiajiang ceramic enterprises rose by about 10%~20%.


In the face of all kinds of price increases of raw materials, ceramic enterprises within the areas have also expressed frustration, not only by raising the price to rise on tile crisis, does not reduce the quality of procurement of inferior raw material number, so enterprises can only do only weaken their profits and reduce the cost of marketing and brand promotion.
