2. Problems in the economic operation of the industry
Benefit growth is still not optimistic. From the perspective of major economic indicators, the two-year average growth rate (9.20%, 7.03%) of the industry's main business revenue and total profit was higher than the growth rate of the same period in the first half of 2019, indicating that the recovery of major economic indicators has reached the level before the epidemic. However, from a month-to-month perspective, the growth rate of main business revenue in the first half of this year has declined rapidly from the high level at the beginning of the year, and the growth rate of total profits has declined from the first quarter, and there will be greater pressure on the growth of benefits in the later period. Business operating costs have increased significantly. Since the beginning of this year, affected by the increase in the price of raw materials such as steel, the procurement cost of enterprises has increased significantly, and the profit margin has been further compressed. It is difficult for enterprises to absorb the factors of increasing expenditures and reducing profits by increasing product prices or other cost-reducing and efficiency-increasing measures in a short period of time; labor costs ( Salaries, social security, welfare benefits, etc.) are operating at a high level; corporate financing costs are generally high, and it is difficult to obtain sufficient financial support. The characteristics of insufficient working capital are prominent. The return of funds is not satisfactory, the industry's accounts receivable growth rate is relatively high, and the account receivable turnover rate decreased by 0.3 times compared with the same period of the previous year; especially for engineering projects, the prepayment ratio of some projects is low, and the advance payment cycle of funds The contradiction of shortage of funds is obvious; some companies take up cash when purchasing raw materials, occupying a lot of funds, and enterprises are under great pressure on operation. The expansion of overseas markets is limited. The current epidemic is still spreading around the world, leading to restrictions on overseas market promotion. Overseas orders have been significantly reduced, and orders for some companies have decreased by about 40%; overseas implementation of projects has slowed down due to the advancement of equipment transportation and on-site technical services. The industry generally faces the challenge of lack of talent. With the implementation of the industry's green, low-carbon, digital, and intelligent transformation and upgrading, there is an increasing demand for talents. However, according to the company’s report, the current difficulties in recruiting and employing employees are widespread. There is a shortage of skilled workers and technical personnel in the industry, the difficulty in introducing high-end compound talents, coupled with the serious aging of employees and the high mobility of employees, how to attract them? Talent, human use, and training have become common problems that plague the development of enterprises.
3. Development prediction
Since the beginning of this year, as the global epidemic situation has improved, the world economy has gradually recovered, and at the same time it has shown obvious characteristics of imbalance. my country’s economy has maintained a momentum of rapid growth, showing a trend of stabilizing and improving. The continued implementation of relevant policies and measures such as tax reduction and fee reduction, encouragement of innovation, and financial support will drive the industry’s economy to stabilize and improve. This year is the first year of the "14th Five-Year Plan" period. The building materials industry has achieved significant growth in fixed asset investment. At the same time, digital transformation of the industry and green and low-carbon industries have provided new growth engines for the development of the building materials machinery industry under the background of the epidemic. Market expectations have continued to improve, but It is worth noting that there are still great uncertainties in the external environment. The foundation for the recovery of the international market is not yet solid. The epidemic has caused international market projects to continue to be postponed or terminated. In addition, the prices of raw materials have continued to rise since the beginning of this year. On the whole, the downward pressure on the economic operation of the industry in the second half of the year is still relatively large, and the whole year is expected to show a development trend of high before and low afterwards.
