Internationalization process

In 2013, President xi jinping put forward the development idea of "One Belt And One Road" initiative. China's steel pipe industry actively implemented the development strategy of "going out" and made certain achievements in the process of internationalization.

According to incomplete statistics, steel pipe factories built by Chinese enterprises in foreign countries can be found in North America, southeast Asia, the Middle East, Africa, cis and other places. Figure 2 shows the construction of steel pipe factories in foreign countries in recent years, including 11 welded pipelines and 6 seamless pipelines.

China's steel pipe industry should seize the development opportunity of the national implementation of "One Belt And One Road" initiative, actively "go global" to carry out international production capacity cooperation, build cooperation platform, share cooperation results, and implement the "One Belt And One Road" initiative. In particular, steel pipe enterprises should firmly grasp the opportunity, pay close attention to, do their homework and actively participate.

Compared with the situation that foreign enterprises build steel pipe factories in China, the enterprises that build steel pipe factories in China are mainly medium and low-end products, with few high-end products. Moreover, the capacity of most steel pipe factories is between 50,000 and 100,000 tons. Internationalization is not achieved by building one and a half steel pipe factories (holding or acquisition) abroad. There are still many deficiencies in the internationalization of Chinese steel pipe enterprises, such as internationalization development ideas and methods, core technologies, international talents and so on. These will lead to the overall low international competitiveness of enterprises, it is difficult to participate in international competition. Therefore, there is still a large space for the international development of China's steel pipe industry. There is still a long way to go for the international development, and the competitiveness improvement driven by the international development is still far from being shown. To form a group of dominant enterprises in the international resource configuration, forming a group can lead the global steel industry technology development of enterprises, forming a batch of internationally has the voice and the influence of the enterprise, to promote China's steel pipe industry towards the international value chain, cultivating form a world-class steel pipe industry cluster in our country, but also go a long way. Firstly, export our products, technologies and services to the overseas market, establish an international network dominated by marketing, initially form international brand awareness and recognition, and establish an international customer base. Secondly, according to the market demand, the production, research and development, service distribution around the world, to achieve local conditions, close to the customer's global layout and management. Finally, to realize the allocation of international resources, as well as the internationalization of development concept, brand, corporate culture and values, we not only have strong international competitiveness, but also have sufficient global anti-risk ability.


The market demand

Continued pressure in macro economy, the product under the background of outlet pressure increasing, to deepen the structural reform, the supply side to carry out the "three to one drop one fill in" for short board, the state council issued "about keeping infrastructure repair strength of short guidance", put forward in the poverty alleviation engines, railways, highways, water transport, and other areas of the nine major projects, accelerate the completion in all areas of short board, promote domestic demand growth. A new round of infrastructure construction has begun in 2019. This year, construction projects will start on railways, highways, rail transit, airports and affordable housing, with an estimated investment of more than 3.4 trillion yuan. This is a good news for the steel pipe industry.

In 2018, crude oil processing, natural gas, shale gas, electricity generation, pipeline construction, real estate, machinery, coal, coal-bed methane and other downstream steel pipe industries performed well (see table 3). The downstream steel pipe industry is generally optimistic in 2019, which will bring confidence to the steel pipe industry.

China's coal to gas demand is increasing, oil and gas pipeline network, pipeline construction is still in the rapid development stage, the demand for steel pipe is booming. If the international oil price can recover in 2019, China will step up domestic oil and gas exploration and development efforts, and the demand for oil well pipes will also increase. In general, the demand of relevant downstream industries in China's steel pipe market is stable, and it is expected that the production and marketing of steel pipes in China will remain stable in 2019.

In short, China's steel pipe industry will continue to deepen structural adjustment, transformation and upgrading, environmental protection production, quality and efficiency improvement. This is mainly reflected in the following aspects: more rational allocation of resources and continuous improvement of utilization efficiency; Intelligent production process; Promoting scientific and technological innovation; Optimize the variety structure; Increasing demand for special steel; Product quality upgrade; Enterprise core competitiveness improvement; The coming of industry merger and reorganization.
