Last year, domestic printing achieved a total output value of 31.2 billion yuan.
In 2008, the production and market of printing equipment showed an inverted V-shaped development trend. At the beginning of the year, the entire industry basically continued its high growth in 2007 and was in a strong upward trend. Compared with the same period of 2007, the growth rate was about 10-20%. Since the second half of the year, some export-oriented enterprises have been affected by the international economic crisis, and orders have begun to decrease. In the latter part of the third quarter, most companies felt that the crisis was coming, some enterprises cut production, and even some of the production growth slowed down. From the perspective of the whole year, offset printing plates, inks, and printing rubber rollers are still growing more than in 2007, and printing blankets and anodized aluminum are down from 2007.
Recently, China Printing and Equipment Industry Association Printing Equipment Branch conducted a survey on the production, sales and export of some printing equipment manufacturers in China in 2008. The survey has a wide coverage, including domestic enterprises, foreign-funded enterprises and joint ventures. The investigation of offset printing plates is over 90%, which basically reflects the current situation of the domestic printing equipment industry.

Offset printing plate: In 2008, the total production capacity of national offset printing plates was about 360 million square meters. The actual production volume was 279 million square meters, an increase of 15.39% over 2007. The PS version production was 218 million square meters, an increase of 5.59% compared with 2007. The CTP version production was 61 million square meters, an increase of 72.18% over 2007. . The actual total sales volume of offset printing plates was 269 million square meters, an increase of 11.72% over 2007. The sales volume of PS plates was 211 million square meters, up 2% from 2007, and the sales volume of CTP plates was 58 million square meters. The annual growth rate is 71.36%. The annual sales amounted to 8.458 billion yuan, an increase of 15.86% over 2007. The sales of the PS version was 5.482 billion yuan, and the sales of the CTP version was 2.976 billion yuan. The total profit is about 350 million yuan, and the average profit rate of the whole industry is about 4%. The profit of this CTP plate is much higher than the PS version. The annual export volume of offset printing plates was 101 million square meters, an increase of 22% over 2007. The PS version exported 65 million square meters, which was basically the same as in 2007. The CTP version exported 360 million square meters, an increase of 103.93% over 2007.
From the above data, we can see that despite the huge impact of the international economic crisis in 2008, the offset printing plate industry still maintained a growth rate of more than 15%, compared with other products in the printing equipment category, such as printing paper, ink, blankets. Wait a bit higher. This is still due to the increase in exports, mainly due to the increase in exports of the CTP version. From the data, we can also see that the growth of the traditional PS version, whether it is domestic consumption or export volume, has a very low growth rate. Of course, this has a lot to do with the economic crisis in 2008, and will improve after the economic crisis. . The CTP version of production, consumption, and export volume has increased much more than in 2007. This shows that the demand for high-end plates at home and abroad is getting bigger and bigger, and the production capacity of domestic CTP plates is getting stronger and stronger. Therefore, we can predict that the domestic CTP version of production will maintain a high growth rate in 2009. The high-tech CTP version will be the main direction for the development of China's offset printing plate industry.
Printing blanket: In 2008, the total production capacity of printing blankets was 1.16 million square meters, and the sales volume was 1.17 million square meters, down 8% year-on-year, sales was 312 million yuan, down 3% year-on-year, and both export volume and export value decreased. 4% or more. The blanket is one of the main consumables of the offset printing machine, which can be roughly divided into two types: ordinary blanket and air cushion blanket. At present, the number of high-end printing presses in China has grown rapidly, and the number of low-end and medium-end printing presses has been eliminated. The demand for printing products is increasing, and the quality requirements for blankets are getting higher and higher. The market demand for such ordinary blankets has gradually shrunk, and the market demand for air-cushion blankets has been increasing. Many domestic production plants are still unable to produce air cushion blankets in large quantities, which has led to a decline in the production of domestic enterprises, while high-end air cushion blankets produced abroad have swarmed in. In the air-cushion blankets consumed domestically, foreign imports still account for a large proportion. Paying attention to product structure adjustment, increasing product technology and increasing varieties, and stabilizing product quality are still the tasks faced by our domestic blanket manufacturers.
Printing rubber rollers: In 2008, the total production volume of printing rubber rollers was 1.5 billion cubic centimeters, an increase of 6% over 2007, and the sales volume decreased. The characteristics of rubber roller production in China are: many manufacturers, small production scale, low equipment level and backward technology. There are few companies with an annual output value of more than 5 million yuan, and most of them can only produce medium and low-grade rubber rollers, which are used on low-speed printing presses. At present, there are more and more domestic high-speed printing presses, and most rubber roller manufacturers in China are obviously unable to keep up with this development. Fortunately, some key domestic enterprises have been targeting the high-end equipment market, promoting the research and development of high-grade printing rubber rollers, and introducing a series of high-grade rubber rollers by introducing technology, equipment and raw materials to fill the gap in the market. The situation of domestic rubber roller production decentralization is difficult to change in the short term, but a small number of large enterprises will occupy more and more market share.
Aluminized aluminum: In 2008, the total production volume was 4.49 million volumes, and the total sales volume was 4.51 million volumes, a decrease of 7% from 2007 and a sales income of 412 million yuan. The production of anodized aluminum was greatly affected by the economic crisis. In the annual survey of the printing industry in 2008 by the China Printing and Equipment Industry Association, the growth rate of packaging printing decreased compared with the previous years, and the electrochemical aluminum was also affected. However, some high-end products, such as laser stamping film and holographic anti-counterfeiting label, are in high demand, especially for anti-counterfeiting labels. As the packaging of products becomes more and more personalized, the demand will become larger and larger. The decentralization of electrochemical aluminum production has become more and more serious in recent years. In some places, many new enterprises have been launched. These new enterprises are relatively simple in equipment and produce low-end ordinary products, which will intensify the market competition of low-end products.
Ink industry: In 2008, the total production volume of the ink industry was 425,000 tons, an increase of about 8% over 2007. The export volume was 29,600 tons, the export value was 105 million US dollars, and the import volume was 38,800 tons, with an amount of 376 million US dollars. Although the growth rate of the ink industry in 2008 decreased overall, it still increased compared with 2007, but the number of imports and exports declined. Imports fell from 46,500 tons in 2007 to 38,800 tons, and exports from 37,600 tons in 2007. The decline was 29,600 tons. From the above figures, we can also see that in 2008, the export volume of 29,600 tons was only $105 million, while the import volume of 38,800 tons required $376 million. The unit price of imported ink is much higher than the unit price of export ink, which means that some high-grade inks still need to be imported, and domestic production is far from satisfactory.
Plate-making film: In 2008, domestic plate-making film production was about 13 million square meters, and still needs a large amount of imports. This is mainly due to the serious shortage of domestic production capacity and the low number of companies capable of producing film. Due to the uncertain demand for plate-making films, companies are waiting to see and influence investment momentum. In the short term, domestically produced plate-making films still need to rely on imports. This should attract the attention of domestic enterprises.
In 2008, the domestic printing equipment industry achieved a total output value of 31.2 billion yuan (excluding printing paper), an increase of 12.7% over the previous year.
