China’s textile industry enterprises are facing difficulties

According to the National Development and Reform Commission relating to small and medium enterprises Secretary said that in the first half of this year, 67,000 more than the size of the closure of small and medium enterprises. Among them, textile industry, the closure of more than 10,000 small and medium enterprises, 2 / 3 of the textile industry is facing re-engineering. Have to admit that although the textile industry is not a “sunset industry”, which is currently in a “sunset industry” operating state.

In the very basis of our country, and after the reform and opening up on the big boom has been the development of the industry, now reduced to 2 / 3 of loss or low-profit enterprises in the state, will definitely cause for self-examination and reflection.

The decline of textile industry

As we all know, is China’s internal and external problems of the textile industry in an awkward position.

At present, by the sharp appreciation of the yuan, lower export tax rebates, raw materials and rising labor costs, and other adverse factors, textile and garment industry of rising costs. The first five months of the textile industry a loss of 10,498 enterprises, industry-wide loss expanded to 22.85 percent, 1.57 percent increase over the same period last year.

On the other hand, the first textile network, according to statistics, 2008 5 months, China exported a total of 71,316,000,000 U.S. dollars of textiles and garments, up 12.42 percent. Of which exports clothing and accessories 37,643,000,000 U.S. dollars, up only 7.03 percent, which is far below the national average, and the same period last year dropped 11 percentage points.

Wang would say forward: “The textile industry’s decline has become difficult to change reality.” He explained that the National Bureau of Statistics in 39 major categories of industrial sectors, the textile sub-sectors were the three very low, and the textile industry a total industrial added value growth rate of 12.2 percent, clothing, shoes, caps cumulative growth in manufacturing Rate of 12.5 percent, chemical fiber manufacturing cumulative growth rate of 6.7 percent, respectively, than in the first half of this year dropped 0.5,0.6 and 1 percentage point higher than the same period last year dropped 4.7,4.4 and 10.6 percentage points.

For a sharp slowdown in the textile industry, Wang said that the way forward, the first after many years of sustained high growth, China’s textile economy in 2007 has shown a significant “structural surplus”; Second, the United States sub-loan crisis fuse for the World Economic adjustment, but also on China’s textile industry created a great impact.

The textile industry, a senior scholar Wang on the progress endorse that. “Since 2000, fixed asset investment in the textile industry for high-growth, in 2003 and 2004 was 100%. Although the increase in 2005 was somewhat lower, but overall has remained close to 40% growth.” He said, “over – The growth was mainly in scale, not to upgrade the textile industry and brand building, which the industry as a whole for the decline of potential problems. ”

Heat to cool investment

The entire textile industry’s decline in profitability, most companies follow-up for the lack of investor confidence, to promote direct investment in the textile industry to cool the heat.

China Textile Industry Association statistics show that 1 in July this year, China’s textile industry for more than 5,000,000 yuan of investment in fixed assets investment projects to achieve a total of 153,410,000,000 yuan, up 13.14 percent, higher than the year 2007 to reduce the level of 12.60 percent.

The investment growth has been driven textile drivers of economic growth. The sharp decline in investment is bound to inhibit the growth of the textile economy; textile slow economic growth, also weakened the confidence of the investment. The textile industry has thus produced a vicious cycle, the industry as a whole natural pushed to the air waves.

In the face of the plight of the industry, the China Textile Industry Association, Du Yuzhou said: “The most fundamental is how to improve industry productivity through technology and innovation and brand value to increase revenue.” He repeatedly emphasized that the Chinese textile and garment enterprises decision-makers Do not expand the scale in the first place.

This is a pace of industrial upgrading in the textile industry and increase the cost of the speed of the race.

The textile industry, experts and scholars also agreed that China’s textile industry faces difficulties, it is in China to create China must go beyond the transition phase of the inevitable.

“China’s textile products with low added value, can only rely on low prices and huge amount of profits, when the renminbi appreciation, rising costs and other factors coming together, that is, many businesses have closed our time.” Many experts said that Concern, “Therefore, the traditional mode of marketing and business ideas to change the time.”

However, the textile industry and the emergence of a problem, and that is money.

As the textile industry analysts said Ma expedition, “the current difficulties, the textile and garment industry to survive the challenges of the most important factor is to ensure that the cash flow.” Is not a financial guarantee for the many small and medium enterprises in a dilemma. In view of the situation in the textile industry, and Jiangsu on the banks of small and medium enterprises turn on the red light.

For this, Jiangsu Changshu a down jacket manufacturers Jiang-Tao Wang, vice president of the profound. He ran the week three banks, Dai Qi every time the company’s materials, housing permits, business purchase and sale contracts, letters of credit lending procedures and so on, but empty-handed.

To find a way out of the textile industry

Of course, the downturn in the textile business conditions, the state macro-control is also actively help the business “of winter.”

First of all, part of the state’s textile and garment export tax rebate rate by 2 percentage points back, making the plight of textile and garment exports to some extent ease; Second, the central bank recently announced that from Sept. 16, lowered the benchmark interest rate of RMB loans and small and medium-sized financial institutions RMB deposit reserve ratio. This is to some extent eased the pressure on small and medium enterprises in the textile industry, but how effective it?

Wang expressed concern about the way forward, he said: “Although the loan rate cut will help reduce borrowing costs and reduce its financial burden, especially down the deposit reserve ratio will help increase support for the financing of small and medium enterprises to expand investment demand . However, the textile industry in the face of the environment, the ‘two-rate’ is not worthy of excitement down. The introduction of the policy adjustment has indicated that the risk of the global economy has become. I am afraid that the U.S. loan crisis meeting of a new round of the effects of conduction Will have emerged. ”

As chairman of the Du Yuzhou said, the textile industry is the fundamental way in the industry. Fortunately, some enterprises have begun to explore, and have achieved success.

It is reported that Zhejiang has developed a business with the production of soybean milk and fabrics, such dual-fiber fabric is not only comfortable, breathable, yet feel very good. At present, the only one. No wonder the people in charge of the enterprise, not without pride: “pricing power in the hands of their own, I would like to play how much profit is my thing.”

Shandong Province, Gao Qing Xian cotton farmers are relying on local resources, go with the words “respect for the green, back-to-nature” of the market demand, change “cotton” to “clothing”, made with a strong local flavor and national characteristics of the traditional cotton by hand, “the old coarse cloth “, Has become a gift for friends and family,” specialty “, not only revitalize textile and garment enterprises, but also for farmers to increase wealth to find a new way.

Zhejiang Shaoxing while saving energy and reducing consumption to increase as a hard effort. It is understood that Ransha industry’s largest companies is the cost of energy costs. In the “energy equivalent to the cost-saving, pollution is a waste of energy” business philosophy, Shaoxing Ransha of production enterprises in the process of condensation water, cooling water and then 100% recovery for the production and the production processes in the Water depth to deal with. This alone, for enterprises to save water 1,750,000 tons, to save costs 1,610,000 yuan sewage treatment, lowering production costs so that nearly 50%, greatly relieving the pressure on the operators.

In the business model of innovation, Chang Jin Metersbonwe no doubt a sweet taste.

“Light” of the model was called into question for the purse, not a factory, did not shop the business, now out of Wenzhou, the headquarters will be moved to Shanghai in the country have joined more than 2,000 stores and Direct. In 2007, sales of more than 70 billion yuan in the first quarter 2008 profit of 1.4 billion, enough to prove that such a report card of all.

Although the above case and has a regional particularity, but the innovative concept of national boundaries, geography, the textile industry enterprises upgrade their soft power, find themselves before they can out of the woods, the reshaping of the textile industry, “Chaoyang” image .
