5 major difficulties in the textile industry in 2019


In 2019, the textile industry's upstream, middle and lower reaches, from raw materials to yarns, from grey cloths to ready-to-wear, from production to sales, from domestic trade to foreign trade, are facing a strain of international trade and upward pressure on the internal economy. So, what are the focus of the textile industry in 2019?

1. Environmental protection policy normalization industry shuffling acceleration

Since 2017, the environmental protection requirements have been fully tightened. In 2018, various environmental protection policies and regulations have been intensively carried out. In 2019, environmental protection pressure will continue. A new round of central environmental protection supervision will be launched, and environmental protection normalization will become an inevitable trend. On January 1, 2019, China's first soil pollution prevention and control law "The Law of the People's Republic of China on Soil Pollution Prevention and Control" was officially implemented. On the same day, the number was called “the most stringent in history”, and the “Regulations on the Prevention and Control of Air Pollution in Shanxi Province (Revised)”, which had made many “stunning” strict regulations on pollution prevention and control, was also implemented. Under the pressure of environmental protection policies, “scattering and pollution” enterprises will be further eliminated.


2, the international crude oil market turmoil PTA rises

The international crude oil price rebounded sharply in the near future. After January 1, 2019, the international oil price ushered in a seven-day rise, and the PTA market was also rising.

3. The future trend of Sino-US trade friction escalation is unknown

On May 14th, just now, the Office of the US Trade Representative (USTR) issued an announcement to solicit 25% tariffs on Chinese goods for about $300 billion and hold public hearings. The Customs Tariff Commission of the State Council issued an announcement yesterday, starting from 0:00 on June 1, 2019, to increase the tariff rate on the part of the US$60 billion list of US goods that have been subject to tariffs, up to a 25% tariff.


Secondly, it is the supply of textile raw materials caused by Sino-US trade friction. The United States is the world's largest cotton exporter and the country with the most cotton imports in China. For a long time, China's cotton market is in a state of short supply, and it is necessary to import a certain amount of cotton to meet the demand gap. However, the shadow of Sino-US trade wars already exists. For some textile enterprises that rely heavily on imported cotton, it is an inevitable trend to choose multi-channel supply.


4. The industrial transfer of the textile industry in Southeast Asia

In recent years, the textile and garment 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 the European and American markets have turned to Southeast Asia. Under the pressure of overcapacity and domestic environmental protection policies, some Chinese textile companies have fought in Southeast Asia. However, at the same time, local workers in Southeast Asian countries have low culture, disciplinary work, low work efficiency, high cost of technical training for employees, excessive salary increases, poor government business environment, and the need to improve the openness of the industry. For textile enterprises, the transfer cost in Southeast Asia is not a small burden, as is the security situation in Southeast Asia.


5. the change of workers' concept has changed back to the trend

Enterprises in the central and western regions have developed rapidly, providing a lot of jobs for local employees. Workers can work in their hometowns, and to a large extent reduce the labor resources in Jiangsu and Zhejiang. The concept of workers has shifted from salary to whether there is rest time. In the past, in the factory, in order to get a good job, the eighth day of work resumed. However, the time for workers to return to work is getting late and late, and normal production generally takes about fifteenth of the first month. For many textile bosses, employment in 2019 will be a big problem. On the other hand, facing the rising labor costs of the textile industry, it is the dilemma of young people who are unwilling to engage in the textile industry.
