As the current world economic recovery situation is still not optimistic enough, sovereign debt, political turmoil, unemployment and other situations are still serious, resulting in sluggish growth of the latex gloves industry, entering a relatively flat stage, the market has entered a period of adjustment, and the competitive pressure of enterprises increases.
The latex gloves industry is a labor-intensive industry with a relatively low entry threshold and a fully competitive industry. Until now, it has developed into a mature technology. Only those enterprises with perfect management, outstanding technical ability and strong ability to develop and maintain the international market can maintain their dominant position.
For the domestic latex gloves industry, the main problems are raw materials, labor cost increase, difficult market development and the impact of new products on the inherent field.According to the statistics of China rubber industry association, China produced 720,000 tons of natural rubber in 2011, and imported 2.81 million tons of natural rubber. China's dependence on foreign natural rubber is as high as 80%.Therefore, for latex gloves industry enterprises, has the advantage of raw materials is particularly important.
Although the latex gloves industry is not a high-tech, high value-added industry, but its requirements for the enterprise production line is still not low, with the us FDA for gloves AQL level of further improvement, so that the quality of the enterprise production line, the perfection of the management system and the business situation of the enterprise is more closely related.Therefore, enterprises need to seriously improve their operating conditions, in order to be in a dominant position in the market competition.
From the perspective of market analysis, in view of the world economic recovery is weak, the original import regions such as Europe and North America's consumption growth is slow, increased competition, enterprise is difficult to find opportunity in mature markets, and emerging markets such as South America, Middle East, it is worth our country enterprise in-depth excavation and cultivation object, latex surgical gloves in 2012 in China increased by 145.55%, exports to Latin America to Africa increased by 30.84%, especially for the growth of venezuela, Brazil and other countries, proved in emerging markets, our country with good international reputation and price advantage,The export of latex gloves industry has great potential to be explored.
In addition, the enterprise also needs much attention to the policies and regulations in countries around the world, starting in 2009, the United States food and drug administration (FDA) for medical latex gloves enforcing stricter rules and requirements of medical examination gloves and defect rate lower, surgical gloves to protect medical staff from HIV/AIDS, hepatitis b or hepatitis c virus (HCV) infection.Grasping the interpretation and prediction of policies plays an important role in preventing losses and planning in advance for enterprises.
For the domestic market, enterprises should seize the opportunity of community medical and rural medical reform as well as the national solution to the social medical problems caused by the aging population, and fully develop the market of basic people.Combining with the popularization opportunities of family medical devices, miniaturization and personalized medical devices, we enrich our products and diversify our categories to forge ahead in the market of new designed products.
We believe that with the recovery of the world economy and the development of China's economy, the structure of foreign trade and market will also change, with the increase of global trade dependence, the enhancement of commercialization, the enhancement of industrial clusters and transformation, and the enhancement of product structure optimization and innovation.Therefore, we should make full use of international division of labor and international trade facilitation to further develop the latex gloves industry in China and gradually increase the market share.
