[Hua Ya Forklift] Xiaobian recently obtained news from the Huaya factory, a series of products such as manual trucks, electric forklifts, and stackers will soon usher in a rising tide. Small manual forklifts will float around 60 yuan each, and electric forklifts will float. In the 500-1000 yuan or so.
The reasons for this price increase are mainly: the prices of raw materials continue to rise, especially the prices of steel and rubber mainly used in construction machinery have risen sharply; the national environmental inspections have been increasing, and the supply resources in the upper reaches of the supply chain are in short supply. The impact of factors such as rising environmental protection costs of the foreign affiliated factories has made the price increase of the major OEMs in the industry already in full swing.
Xiaobian learned from China’s steel prices that the average price of steel in Shandong reached 4,154 yuan / ton this week, while the price of Shandong steel in July last year was only 2601.8 yuan / ton, up 60% in just over a year. Since April this year, Shandong steel prices have been rising for 8 consecutive weeks. The price of the latest natural rubber reached 12,800 yuan / ton, while the price of natural rubber in Shanghai was only 10,585 yuan / ton in the same period last year. The natural rubber per ton in the year rose by 2,215 yuan, an increase of 21%. The impact of environmental protection is even more obvious. This year is called ??the most stringent environmental protection year in history??. The Ministry of Environmental Protection has launched a ??five-step method?? for the supervision of steel and other polluting enterprises, namely supervision, assignment, inspection. A series of ??combination punches?? for interviews and special inspectors, and the fourth batch of environmental supervision in the history has been launched. The key supervision schemes in the Beijing-Tianjin-Wing region and Guangdong, Shandong, Sichuan and Jiangsu provinces have been launched. Also released.
In fact, as early as the second half of last year, the “engineering machinery industry is about to usher in the price surge”, but the major construction machinery enterprises have just improved, the purchasing power of users has yet to be restored, and the initiative has assumed the pain caused by the rising raw materials. The commercial vehicle industry has been raised in price at the end of last year. Since the beginning of this year, the construction machinery industry has been showing a continuous upward trend, and some host companies have even seen the phenomenon of selling out of stock. Under the continuous pressure of increasing environmental protection supervision and rising raw material prices and labor costs, some host enterprises have finally been unable to stand up. The price adjustment is inevitable.
This time, the price of forklifts will increase first, and will the prices of other construction machinery also rise? It can only be done and watched.
