The development momentum of the hottest German pla

  • Detail

The development momentum of German plastic industry in the first half of 2016 exceeded expectations. According to the survey of German ki (Kunststoff information), 51% of the companies interviewed recorded an increase in performance compared with the second half of last year

the survey interviewed 495 plastic industry companies from German speaking regions in June: Processing (53%), distribution and ingredients (11%), material supply (7%), machinery (4%), and others

when asked about the comparison with the second half of 2015, 51% of the surveyed companies said that the performance in the first half of 2016 was better, 34% said that it was similar, and only 15% said that the performance was relatively poor

for the performance outlook of the second half of 2016, 46% of the surveyed companies are expected to be similar to that of the first half of the year, and the proportion of companies with better and worse results is expected to be 37% and 17% respectively

in terms of industry, manufacturers of plastic consumer products are relatively optimistic about the second half of 2016, and two thirds of the surveyed companies are expected to have a relative growth. On the contrary, less than 40% of the processing industry is optimistic

at the same time, 66% of the surveyed companies expect the short-term investment plan to remain unchanged, and 19% of the surveyed companies will increase their investment

views on China's plastic industry

in addition, according to the survey, 39% of the surveyed companies said they were purchasing in China, another 4% said they were preparing to do so, and 27% of German companies in the plastic industry also made products in China

as for the strategic significance of carrying out activities in China, a large number of material suppliers and machinery manufacturers said that China is an important or extremely important market

with regard to the increasingly active acquisition and direct investment activities of Chinese companies in Germany and EU countries, according to the survey, half of the surveyed companies whose economic and technical indicators meet the quantitative and qualitative indicators of new plastic materials believe that this is a negative trend, and only 5% of the surveyed companies believe that this is a positive signal. 45% remain neutral or have no opinion on this

the vast majority of respondents are generally worried that this trend poses a threat of technology "selling" (70%). Another reaction is that China should facilitate the return investment of the European Union (60% of the second is the combination of graphene and metal oxide), so the larger the tensile machine, the better. Some respondents believed that the acquired companies would better enter the Chinese market (40%)
