China Drying News December 25 is Christmas Day, in the United States, in many European courtyards, decorated with fiber-optic Christmas trees, resin solar garden lights, etc., in the dark; Christmas candles warm the annual Christmas. It is understood that nearly 90% of the world's Christmas gifts are produced in China, and most of the solar garden lights and cartoon characters using unsaturated resin are produced by Fujian Quanzhou enterprises.

The reporter recently learned from the Jinjiang Office of the Quanzhou Inspection and Quarantine Bureau that, since 2012, toy exports from Quanzhou have continued to show strong growth. In the first 10 months, Quanzhou Inspection and Quarantine Bureau inspected a total of 3690 batches of toys for export, valued at 85.754 million US dollars, an increase from the same period last year. 4.8% and 21.7%. Every year from July to October is the traditional peak season of the toy industry. The types of export toys include plastic toys, chemical fiber plush toys, etc. This undoubtedly also stimulates the demand for chemical raw materials such as polyurethanes, synthetic fibers, coatings, adhesives, and insulating materials. increase.

This is also confirmed by a staff member of Yantai Wanhua Polyurethane Co., Ltd. He told reporters that in the first three quarters of this year, the overall production situation of the company was good, the routine shutdown inspections had been completed, and the polyurethane units had resumed normal production. The three quarterly reports showed that the main business income in the first three quarters was 11.42 billion yuan, up 8.67% year-on-year, of which the third quarter was higher than the first two quarters.

The relevant person in charge of the Jinjiang office of the Quanzhou Inspection and Quarantine Bureau stated that as a whole this year, the international toy market has been getting better, and business orders have generally increased. In addition, the company has attracted customers by continuously increasing investment in R&D of new products, changing product types, and highlighting features, so most enterprises in the jurisdiction have sufficient export orders.

“In the first three quarters, there was a growth trend in corporate exports. At present, the export of Christmas gift products has all ended.” On December 17, Qingdao Golden King Applied Chemicals Co., Ltd. Dong Mi Huang Baoan said in an interview. The company mainly produces five types of products, including new polymer matrix composite wax materials and new epoxy resin composite materials. In the first three quarters, the company's main operating revenue was 970 million yuan, a year-on-year increase of 23.06%.

Although all indications indicate that European and American handicrafts markets are gradually getting warmer and domestic handicraft exports continue to grow, the reporter found in the interview that under the double impact of exchange rates and manpower costs, most resin toy companies’ profits have become increasingly meagre, and some have even lost money. Hey.

“In 2011, the average monthly wage of employees in Quanzhou’s toy industry reached 2,000 yuan, and this year it reached 2,600 yuan. Some skilled workers’ wages even reached 3,500 yuan. The labor cost rose by nearly 30% from last year, accounting for about 50% of the production cost. Profits slipped to around 5%,” an industry source told reporters. In the third quarterly report, Qingdao King King also explained that due to the appreciation of the renminbi and the continuous rise in raw material prices, the gross profit of the company's export products has declined. It is understood that although the company’s main product sales increased by 23% in the third quarter, the profit growth did not increase at the same time, only an increase of 5%.

On the other hand, in recent years, toy safety standards in the two major markets in Europe and the United States have risen dramatically, such as paints, raising the barriers to entry for toy products. In particular, the increase in testing costs has also aggravated the company’s production burden.

With the continuous improvement of environmental protection requirements in various countries, safety standards have become a threshold for domestic resin handicraft export enterprises to cross. Over the years, the EU, the United States, and other countries have imposed various restrictions on the chemical composition and content of light industrial products. Many companies will change their production processes or use new materials accordingly. Of course, they will not be able to keep up with the requirements and will only be able to compete in competition. . It is reported that because the customer has improved the testing standards, only this one company has increased the testing cost by nearly 9%.

"Although the cost has increased, most toy companies have not dared to raise prices rashly. The increase in quotations is less than 10%. It has just been able to offset labor costs. Is there still the cost of detecting costs, exchange rates, and rising raw materials?" Resin toy companies have a lot of trouble for reporters.

In order to reduce costs, companies and governments are working hard. Fujian Jinjiang State Inspection Bureau set up a toy testing laboratory, and many resin companies consciously turned the detection of Christmas toys from "he check" to "self check." The laboratory can test the mechanical physics and performance of toys according to the requirements of toy safety standards in China, the United States, the European Union and other countries and regions. At present, the laboratory's combustion performance testing project, all chemical performance testing projects, and some of the mechanical and physical property testing projects have passed the CNAL (China National Laboratory Accreditation Committee) certification, which has achieved the normalization of testing, thereby reducing the cost of corporate testing.
