The domestic leader of the TPU industry may usher in a rise in both volume and price. The company focuses on the production of TPU products, the existing TPU production capacity of 85000 tons / year, the gross profit margin level is higher than that of the same industry. The entry of Q3PowerTPU products is affected by the epidemic situation, and the terminal demand is under pressure. In terms of price, according to the average price of TPU film, TPU mobile phone case and TPU shoes materials in the first three quarters of Wind,2022 year, the average price of each product in the first three quarters of the year is 24971, 21540, 20967 yuan / ton, + 6.39%, 2.34%, 5.61%, 19,9819168 yuan / ton,-2.06%, 9.26%, 12.62%, 8.21%, 8.62% respectively. In terms of raw materials, the average prices of HDI (East China), pure MDI, BDO and polyester polyol (AA/EG: East China) in the first three quarters of 2022 were 73778MB 21274max 20944max 14,500 yuan / ton, respectively, compared with the same period last year. The average price of each raw material in Q3 in a single season is 69005max 19832max 12568 RMB13045 / ton, compared with the same period last year. 21.82%, 11.05%, 52.09%, 3.94%, 6.97%, 12.76%, respectively. The company's annual output of 200000 tons of elastomer integration project has been approved by EIA in January this year and construction permit in February, and is expected to be put into production at the end of 2023. After putting into production, it is expected to get rid of the production bottleneck and become a leading enterprise in the industry; in addition, the company has set up a new holding subsidiary, Meirui Shanghai, in March 2022, focusing on the application of TPU materials in the automotive industry and related fields, and increasing the added value of products.
The polyurethane integration project is accelerated. Recently, the HDI project of Henan Meirui, a subsidiary of the company, has obtained environmental assessment, energy assessment, safety assessment and "Construction Project Planning license". The first phase of the project plans to invest 1.5 billion yuan to build 120000 tons of special isocyanate capacity, including 100000 tons of HDI, 15000 tons of CHDI and 5000 tons of PPDI.
After the project is put into production, the company will become the seventh mainstream HDI manufacturer in the world. With the localization of adiponitrile, the production cost and price of HDI are expected to decline, driving water-based coatings to replace oily coatings, further improve the permeability and open up the market space in the new energy field of wind power, photovoltaic wind power and other high-end coatings. In addition, HDI as the upstream of TPU, with the commissioning of Henan HDI project, combined with local BDO and PTMEG, the company will make up for the shortcomings of raw materials, open up the whole industry chain of TPU, realize integrated development, greatly enhance its TPU product competitiveness and development autonomy, drive the TPU industry into the fast lane, and accelerate the growth of market scale.
