China s Ministry of industry accelerates
the upgrade of building materials
During the 12th five-year plan period
(2011-2015), the building materials
industry grew annually by 10% in
value. In this context of accelerated
development, the share of inorganic
non-metallic materials and composite
materials continued to expand, says the Ministry, which specifies that
the annual growth of composite materials exceeded 20% in value.
By 2020, in line with the market upgrade, the demand for traditional
materials, including cement, will stabilize or slightly decline, while
demand for ecological materials, inorganic non-metallic advanced
materials and composite materials is expected to continue its
progression. The Plan orders that by 2020, the proportion of ecological
materials used in the construction of new buildings should exceed 40%.
"Transformation, innovation, ecology, merger, opening" are the five
key words of the Plan. This transformation includes the resolution of
the recurring overproduction problems in the industry. By the end of
2020, the Plan will ban to draft any new flat glass and cement clinker
construction projects that would expand production capacity.
