Compared with Ciba, Sandoz, Bayer, etc., which have been established for more than two hundred years in the history of foreign companies, China's current dye companies started relatively late, with only a dozen years of history, and there are not enough new product developments. Applied technical service experience.
Frankly speaking, China's dye industry is based on the imitation of foreign dyes. It has a weak foundation for innovation and is not rich in technology. In particular, there is a shortage of talents that can combine dye synthesis and application. There is a big gap between multinational companies.
The author believes that an important reason for the fact that the domestic dyestuff industry is also becoming more and more realistic about foreign new products and new technologies is that the industrial chain is out of touch. This disconnect, as early as the cultivation of talent in colleges and universities foreshadowed. Students who studied dyeing and finishing in colleges and universities knew nothing about the chemical structure and synthesis of dyes. Students who studied structure and synthesis of dyes did not know much about dye application techniques and dyeing and finishing techniques. In other countries, whether in universities or enterprises, the knowledge from dye synthesis to dyeing and finishing are all integrated. They understand both the chemical structure of dyes and the application of dyes. Therefore, after understanding the various new requirements of customers, foreign dyestuff companies can always develop dyestuffs that adapt to or lead the demand in the early days when new fibers are emerging in an endless stream, the trend of multi-fiber blending is obvious, and the application needs are ever-changing.
From the analysis of the current status of the world's dye industry, due to the large-scale transfer of the global textile industry to Asian countries such as China, coupled with the increasingly obvious constraints on resources, energy, environment, labor costs and other factors, the prospects of the dye industry in foreign countries are not optimistic. It indicates that traditional foreign dye giants will fade out of the dye stage one after another. The global dye industry will undergo large-scale reintegration in the next 5 to 10 years, and Chinese dye enterprises will find more opportunities. More than 10 years ago, BASF, Bayer, Hearst and several other giants integrated the dye business into the worldâ€™s largest dye company, Destar, which was declared bankrupt in September 2009 and is currently being conducted by dyestuff companies in India and China. Integration. Ciba Specialty Chemicals has long sold its dye assistant business. It is certain that China has great room for development in the dye industry because it has a huge industrial support base and market.
For the downstream textile printing and dyeing industry, it is far from enough for dye companies to provide products. With the development of textile fibers and the more stringent requirements for new energy-saving and environmental protection, they need to be able to meet various new demands. Apply technical support and services. The most representative domestic company is Shanghai Yayun Company. More than 10 years ago, on the basis of studying the operating models of foreign companies, combined with the development trend of the dye industry, Yayun Company began the development of its distinctive business model. The company not only studies the new structure of dyes, but also develops new synergistic products from the application technology. It also vigorously develops textile auxiliaries related to dye applications, so that the dyes and auxiliaries in the dyeing and finishing process can be better combined. To achieve integration. The most unique feature of the company is that it provides all kinds of perfect application technology services for printing and dyeing companies as much as possible, and gradually integrates the various elements of modern services according to the development of the industry, and becomes the most comprehensive supplier of dyeing and finishing solutions in the industry. . At present, the attempt to make manufacturing into a modern service industry has conformed to the development trend of the industry. Although the company has achieved some outstanding results, it is a long-term process. It also needs to keep pace with the times and innovate continuously.
In the future, when large international companies with modern service capabilities accelerate their withdrawal from the dye industry, domestic companies will face unprecedented opportunities and challenges. It will be crucial to better integrate technical services and product development. A gratifying phenomenon is that a group of dyestuff enterprises in China have realized the importance of providing modern services and are adjusting the model of corporate development in this direction. Some companies have begun to introduce experienced high-end talent from abroad. However, a large number of enterprises in the country have adjusted from the previous large-scale development model to the mode of providing modern services. There are still many specific issues to be solved.
At present, energy saving and emission reduction and green environmental protection have become a topic that can not be solved for the printing and dyeing industry. The development and application of high-end, energy-saving and environmental-friendly dyes are of great significance to energy-saving and emission-reduction in the industry. For example, with the development of dyes and technological innovations, in the multi-fiber blended dyeing, the traditional â€œtwo-bath two-step methodâ€ is replaced with â€œone-bath one-step methodâ€ dyeing to develop a short-flow process and so on. The promotion of these processes requires the support of new dye products and related processes. Dye production companies can fully provide supporting services for printing and dyeing enterprises. In fact, there are many options for dyeing a desired color, but considering the factors such as environmental protection, health, and energy saving, organic combinations of dyes, processes, and equipment are needed. Who can provide downstream services for this combination of solutions? Have a competitive advantage.
In the future, we can even broaden our thinking and adopt advanced technologies such as modern information and IT network platforms to accelerate the integration of industrialization and informationization. As the company is struggling to build, the future is expected to achieve such a scenario: a fashion designer is inspired by a certain color in the natural world. After taking a photo with an iPhone, he can search for a production platform on a professional network platform. The best dyestuffs, process technology and equipment required for the color package.
In the textile industry chain, dyeing and finishing is the most important step in changing the fabric style. Its technical content is high, and dyes, auxiliaries and process equipment are particularly required to match it. However, dyeing plants are often users of dyes, but they are often not well aware of the dyes. The dye factories mainly focus on production and sales. They lack professional guidance and application talents and have no strong sense of service. This has caused a serious problem - the disconnection between the various aspects of the industry chain. The author believes that from the perspective of dye companies, an effective way to improve this dilemma is to use modern awareness of services to guide enterprises, pay attention to downstream application services, and provide complete sets of service solutions for dyeing and finishing enterprises.
