At present, the domestic epidemic situation has been effectively controlled, the economic and social order has stabilized and recovered, and the main indicators have maintained a stable recovery trend, indicating that China's economy has strong resilience. In the face of the epidemic situation, China's iron and steel industry insists on deepening the supply side structural reform, promoting high-quality development unswervingly, maintaining the stable operation of production and operation, and gradually recovering the economic benefits of enterprises, which reflects the strong anti risk ability of the iron and steel industry, and also highlights the significant advantages of relatively complete industrial chain, relatively high degree of marketization, and strong technical autonomy. At the same time, the international epidemic continues to spread, the risk of the world economic downturn intensifies, the unstable and uncertain factors increase significantly, and the development of the steel industry is facing new difficulties and challenges. Take this opportunity to talk about the current operation of the iron and steel industry and the understanding of the coordinated development of coal, coke and steel industry chain.
1、 China's huge market demand has led to the increase of steel production and alleviated the global overcapacity
China's covid-19 rapid recovery has led to a significant increase in steel demand and a super historical level of steel production, which has increased by 3.7% in the 1-8 month, according to the effective control of the new crown epidemic. From May to August in 2020, the average daily output of crude steel in each month has reached the highest value in the same period in history. The average daily output of crude steel in August is 3059500 tons, which is the highest average daily output of crude steel in a single month in history. In the first eight months of this year, crude steel production accounted for 58% of the world, and pig iron production accounted for 69% of the world.
2、 Based on the new development pattern, strengthen the construction of iron and steel industry chain
The operation of China's iron and steel industry this year has proved the correctness of the central government's strategic choice of internal circulation. During the epidemic period, the relatively complete industrial system and super large-scale internal circulation market provided strong support for the development of China's iron and steel industry. Since the second quarter, the demand of downstream steel industry has recovered rapidly. The newly started construction area of real estate, automobile production and ship production have increased by 145.8%, 87.1% and 55.9% respectively compared with the first quarter, which are also higher than the same period of last year. The automobile production and sales just released the day before yesterday in September exceeded 2.5 million, reaching a new high in the year, with a year-on-year growth of 14.1% and 12.9% respectively, which has strongly stimulated the demand for steel Market demand of iron and steel products. It can be said that the recovery of iron and steel demand exceeded expectations, the supply of iron and steel products was strongly guaranteed, and China's iron and steel industry as a whole maintained a stable operation and withstood the test of the epidemic.
The iron and steel industry should make full use of the advantages of the domestic super large-scale market to build a closer community of interests with the downstream steel industry. At the same time, it also needs to work with the upstream industry, such as the coal and coke industry, to build a stable, efficient and coordinated supply chain for the iron and steel industry, We should improve the understanding of the importance of reciprocal cooperation in the industrial chain, effectively strengthen the deep integration of the industrial chain, further maintain the long-term, coordinated and healthy development of coal, coke and steel, and achieve win-win cooperation.
