new materials will accelerate the breakthrough and further development of the industry

“As a strategic emerging industry and one of the key development areas of made in China 2025, new materials are the industrial foundation for the transformation and upgrading of the whole manufacturing industry. The development of new material industry is a new driving force for China’s rapid economic development to high-quality development, an important measure to deepen the supply side structural reform, and a source of vitality to revitalize the real economy. Miao Zhimin, deputy director of the Department of raw materials industry of the Ministry of industry and information technology, said at the 2017 China new materials capital technology autumn summit held recently

in recent years, China’s new material industry has developed rapidly. Data show that in 2016, the total output value of China’s new material industry wa2.65 trillion yuan, with a growth rate of 35%. A number of new materials, such as rare earth functional materials, advanced energy storage materials, photovoltaic materials, organic silicon, superhard materials, special stainless steel, glass fiber and its composites, have the highest production capacity in the world. However, Miao Zhimin said that China’s new materials industry is still in the primary stage of tracking, imitating and industrial cultivation, and there is a long way to go to cultivate and develop the new materials industry, which requires the joint efforts of all departments, local governments at all levels, new material manufacturers, user units, scientific research institutes and intermediaries

the short board of rapid industrial development still exists

new materials are the cornerstone and forerunner of a new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial change. 1n recent years, new materials such as silicon materials, polymers, high-strength alloys, carbon fibers, graphene and so on have developed vigorously, which strongly supports the rapid development of the world’s high-tech industry

“since the 11th five year plan, remarkable achievements have been made in technological innovation and market cultivation of new chemical materials in China, and the industrial system has been gradually improved.” Yang Ting, Secretary General of the chemical industry park working committee of the China Federation of petroleum and chemical industries, said, “at present, China has been able to produce tens of thousands of new chemical products, which are widely used in electronics, building materials, automobiles and ships, rail transit and other fields.”

among them, as one of the important fields of new material industry, high-performance fibers, including carbon fiber, aramid fiber and ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fiber, have attracted extensive attention in recent years

“the market scale of carbon fiber composites is expected to reach 35.7 billion US dollars in 2020.” Yu muhuo, chief scientist of the national 973 project and professor of Donghua University, said that carbon fiber composites have made good progress in recent years, and have begun to start in the era of large-scale application in the manufacturing industry: continuous progress of technology, continuous reduction of cost, continuous improvement of production automation technology, and continuous expansion of application fields. 1t is reported that new carbon fiber applications mainly include space shuttle, advanced rail transit, offshore wind power, marine chemical industry, marine container lightweight, building reinforcement, exoskeleton, etc< According to the data, the total output value of China's new material industry in 2016 wa2.65 trillion yuan, with a growth rate of 35%. The development of the whole industry is very strong. But at the same time, the problems encountered in the development of new materials can not be ignored. Miao Zhimin said that China's new material industry is still in the primary stage of tracking, imitating and industrial cultivation. 1n terms of industrial scale, technical equipment and innovation ability, there is a big gap with the international advanced level. The problems in industrial development, such as insufficient innovation ability, disordered industrial layout, weak promotion and application, unsound system and lack of talent team, have not been fundamentally solved take new chemical materials as an example. Yang Ting said that although China’s new chemical materials have performed extraordinary in recent years, there is still a big gap in terms of industrial scale, technical level and product quality compared with developed countries. Some high-end new chemical materials still have not achieved large-scale production, and there is a big gap with imported products, which can only meet the demand of middle and low end, and some key materials still rely on imports “the development of China’s new materials should be in the direction of optimization, uniqueness and subversion, which can support the high added value of made in China 2025. Only by grasping the development of core technology, can we ensure the sustainability of China’s manufacturing industry and gradually develop China from a big manufacturing country to a powerful manufacturing country.” Lu Jian, academician of the French National Academy of technical sciences and vice president of the City University of Hong Kong, said< At present, with the rise of a new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial change, new technology and new products have achieved group breakthrough, and the pace of industrial upgrading and material upgrading has accelerated. With the rapid breakthrough and in-depth development of new materials, its basic and leading role in the new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial change will be more prominent< At present, new materials have become the key field of international high-tech competition. Major developed countries have put new materials in a very prominent position, intensively issued major planning policies, and given strong support from R & D investment, market cultivation, and legal system, striving to seize the opportunities for future development China has also introduced a variety of policies and measures to support the development of new material industry. For example, in December 2016, the State Council established the national leading group for the development of new materials industry; 1n early 2017, the Ministry of industry and information technology, the national development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of science and technology, and the Ministry of Finance jointly formulated and issued the new material industry development guide, which proposed that by 2020, the comprehensive support capacity of key strategic materials will exceed 70%, the innovation capacity of new materials will continue to improve, the industrial system will be initially improved, and the key direction of material development will be clarified; On February 28, 2017, the national new material industry development expert advisory committee was established; Recently, the Ministry of industry and information technology, the Ministry of Finance and the China 1nsurance Regulatory Commission have carried out the pilot work of the first batch application of insurance compensation mechanism for key new materials. A series of policies and measures show the determination and strength of China in promoting the development of new material industry< However, Miao Zhimin said that the problems existing in the development of new material industry can not be solved overnight, and it is necessary to keep a clear mind and strategic determination, and continue to work hard and realistically. He said that there is a long way to go to cultivate and develop the new material industry, which requires the joint efforts of all departments, local governments at all levels, new material production enterprises, user units, scientific research institutes and intermediaries< At present, the new material industry has been attached great importance by local governments. According to Jiang Jianping, Secretary of the Party committee and director of the Management Committee of Zhuhai Economic and Technological Development Zone (Zhuhai Gaolan Port Economic Zone), Zhuhai Economic and Technological Development Zone is making full use of the existing industrial base, taking the new material industry as an important starting point for implementing the innovation driven development strategy and promoting the adjustment and upgrading of industrial structure, and vigorously building a regional innovation cluster with new materials as an important part. The new material industry park has been planned and constructed, and a number of high-end new material projects including Wanhua chemical special polyurethane, Guanghua technology lithium ion battery cathode material, and lien long polymer materials anti-aging additives have been introduced. The total investment of the existing projects has exceeded 10 billion yuan, striving to build a 30 billion level new material industry cluster during the 13th Five Year Plan period at the same time, some scientific research institutes have also strengthened the research of new material technology. Li Wei, member of the National Committee of the Chinese people’s Political Consultative Conference and academician of the Chinese Academy of engineering, said that by 2025, the main goal of rare earth materials is to develop some innovative high-performance rare earth materials with original intellectual property rights, and to improve the comprehensive application of 17 kinds of rare earth materials “as the foundation and leader of the whole high-end equipment key project and strategic emerging industry, new materials are becoming more and more important. At the same time, the development of new materials should be combined with capital, fund and capital, which is very important.” Gan Yong, academician of the Chinese Academy of engineering and director of the national new materials industry development expert advisory committee, said at the same time, new material industry is becoming more and more popular in the capital field, and a series of investments are in full swing, including national and local governments at all levels have also set up a number of special funds to invest in the development of new material industry “based on the investment opportunities brought about by the technological revolution, industrial transformation and made in China 2025, the investment opportunities brought about by new materials, high-end manufacturing equipment, consumption upgrading and biomedical health will be the key investment areas of the National SME development fund.” Shi Anping, chief partner and CEO of China venture capital, said that with the arrival of policy dividend, new materials are expected to be on the air again and become the focus of investors’ attention
