(1)Increasing steadily demands in quartz tubes market
①Incandescent light is losing advantage
Nowadays,common household incandescent light belongs to the first generation thermal radiation source.While having a low manufacturing cost and ease of use,but its luminous efficiency is low, generally only about 10% of the electricity used for lighting, most of the remaining energy is converted into heat energy consumed, energy comsuming
is too large, including energy-saving halogen lamps, low-power metal halide lighting and other new products can substantial improve energy efficiency, life expectancy is longer than ordinary incandescent lamp.
Therefore, in order to reduce energy bills, energy conservation, most of the world countries and regions have developed a corresponding program, will gradually phase out the use of incandescent lamps in the near future,with the above Incandescent light phase-out plan, energy-saving halogen lamps, low-power quartz metal halide light source products and other energy-saving electric light source products will gradually replace incandescent electric light use as a base, and quartz tubes be as one of the main quartz tube bulb material quartz electric light source products, and its demand is expected in the next few years will remain steady growth.
②Quartz products industry layout gradually transferred to China
Firstly, due to the continuous development of China quartz tubes industry related technology and domestic manufacturing cost advantage, domestic quartz tubes take the place of lower cost foreign manufacturers products step by step.
Secondly, China has become the manufacturing center of the global largest producer of lighting and lighting source of the world, the world’s three largest lighting company they are Osram Lang, Philips Lighting, GE Lighting has been transfering manufacturing and sourcing center to China. This product substitution and the transfer of production centers will further enhance our company’s cost advantage and market competitiveness, making our quartz tube for lighting demands keep growth steadily.
(2)High purity quartz sand broadly prospects in the downstream PV industry
Currently, photovoltaic energy accounts for total global energy use is extremely limited, according to the World Energy Organization and the European Joint Research Centre and the European Photovoltaic Industry Association predicts that world photovoltaic power generation will account for 1% of electricity in 2020,photovoltaic power generation will account for 20% of global generating capacity by 2040, and occupy an important position in the world energy mix.In the next few decades the global solar PV industry will reach a CAGR of 25% -30% according to this calculation.Thus, the global PV industry’s future has broad prospects, the industry will continue to maintain steady growth.Based on projections, high purity quartz sands as the photovoltaic industry supporting material in the future will have broad market prospects.
Technology development of new lighting products (LED) could impact on electric lighting products markets.
In recent years,LED lighting products known as the fourth generation of electric light source products are strongly supported by the respective national government policy for its good energy saving, environmental protection and other features
Currently, low-power lighting, traffic signal light, the liquid crystal display continue to expand in the applications market.And it is expected to continue to maintain a rapid growth, and in the long run, LED light products will gradually replace traditional electric light source products.According to analysis, the white LED will gradually replace the original electric light source products in the power of the light source and light intensity less demanding areas in the future.Therefore, LED in the future will have a certain impact on other electric light source products.
But the processing of LED lights in these areas gradually replace the traditional electric light still have to overcome tow bottlenecks of technical and cost.It will take a long time.Furthermore, in some areas requiring high-power strong light source, due to the LED luminous efficiency, consistency still have no good solution,high-power LED light still cannot compete with halogen lamps, HID lamps and other products on a cost-effective and energy-saving.Therefore, from the analysis of the foreseeable future,development of LED light source will not have a significant adverse impact on the silica-based lighting products,especially high-power light source products.
