5 difficulties in the textile industry in 2019

1. Normalize environmental protection policies and accelerate industry reshuffle




Since 2017, all kinds of environmental protection policies and regulations have been put into effect. In 2019, the pressure on environmental protection will continue. A new round of central environmental supervision has been launched. China's first soil pollution prevention and control law came into effect on January 1, 2019. On the same day, the regulations of Shanxi Province on the prevention and control of air pollution (revised), known as the "strictest in history", came into force, with a number of "jaw-dropping" strict regulations on pollution control. Under the pressure of environmental protection policy, "scattered pollution" enterprises will be further eliminated.




2. The international crude oil market is turbulent, and PTA is rising




The recent rebound of international crude oil price is obvious. After January 1, 2019, the international oil price is going up seven times, and PTA price is also rising.




3, sino-us trade friction truce, the future trend is unclear




On May 14, the office of the United States trade representative (USTR) announced that it would seek opinions and hold public hearings on the 25% tariff increase on Chinese goods worth about 300 billion us dollars. The tariff commission of the State Council issued a notice yesterday, raising the tariff rate of up to 25 percent on some of the us $60 billion list of goods that have been subject to additional tariffs since midnight on June 1, 2019.




The second problem is the supply of textile raw materials caused by sino-us trade friction. The United States is the world's largest exporter of cotton and China's largest importer. All the time, China's cotton market is in short supply, the need to import a certain amount of cotton to meet the demand gap. However, the shadow of a trade war between China and the United States has already existed. For some textile companies that are heavily dependent on imported cotton, it is inevitable to choose multiple channels for supply.




4. The rise of textile industry in southeast Asia and industrial transfer




In recent years, the textile and clothing industry in southeast Asia (especially Vietnam and Bangladesh) has begun to be favored by more and more European and American merchants, and some orders from European and American markets have shifted to southeast Asia. Under the pressure of overcapacity and domestic environmental policy, some Chinese textile enterprises have moved to southeast Asia.




But at the same time, low local workers of southeast Asian nations culture, discipline, and low work efficiency, staff technical training cost is high, wage increases too fast, ZF business environment, industry, and open level needs to be improved in many problems, and for textile enterprises, the southeast Asia transfer cost is also a big burden, also the same situation in southeast Asia security issues.




5, the concept of workers change, more than the tide




The rapid development of enterprises in the central and western regions has provided many jobs for local employees, and workers can find jobs in their hometown nearby. To a large extent, this has also reduced the labor resources in jiangsu and zhejiang areas. The idea of worker by salary how much turned whether to have break time, before in the factory can in order to beg a good color head, the eighth day resume work.




But now the workers return to work time more and more late, normal production is generally to the fifteenth day of the first month or so. For many textile owners, 2019 is likely to be a difficult year for employment. On the other hand, faced with the rising labor cost in the textile industry, it is a dilemma that young people are unwilling to engage in the textile industry.
