Secretary of Masterbatch and Compound Conference: Masterbatch industry works with 20% capacity

According to Inpia , Saeed Moayed continued: From car production to Sanatgram home appliances, he uses compound And this shows the vastness and inclusion of this industry.

& nbsp;

Emphasizing that despite the vastness and importance of this industry, there are also problems, he said: “Masterbatch industry works from only two million tons of capacity with only about 400 thousand tons of capacity, ie it operates with 20% of capacity.”

& nbsp;

When an industry is operating at 20% capacity, it naturally has high overhead costs and cannot work at a reasonable price and has to reduce manpower, which is why many masterbatch and compound craftsmen find it difficult to make ends meet.

& nbsp;

Moayed added: “Another issue we are facing is instability in the prices and conditions of raw materials, although we have resources polymer but the materials are polymer with conditions And the price is not stable in the market and some manufacturing companies have to polymer Provide up to 20% higher than the global average in the market. In the masterbatch and compound industry, the profit and value-added margins are not high enough to allow a 10% price increase to allow competition for a foreign compound.

& nbsp;

He continued: “Consider that many foreign commanders in India and China polymer < / a> buy us from Iranian Petrochemicals cheaper than ourselves And because petrochemicals have export bonuses and export materials at cheaper prices کردن. On the other hand, some people circumvent the tariffs and import masterbatch and compound into the country and compete with us very easily.

& nbsp;

He pointed to the problem of exports and said: “When we want to export, we face price instability. With a small tension, the price of raw materials rises and is traded on the stock exchange with 10% competition. How many times does it compete and Expensive materials will destroy the whole export project.

& nbsp;

The next issue is imports; Although the operational work is well done, but unfortunately things are not going well, part of it is normal because the detection of materials Raw polymer , masterbatch and compound are really hard to do and some are misused and we see a lot of masterbatch and compound being imported.

& nbsp;

Another point is that we polymer materials from Petrochemical We buy with free currency, but some grades Polymer are now allowed to be traded in exchange currency, if the compound goes in the same grades and is traded in exchange currency, in no way do we have the power to compete We will not have. In a compound grade with a 15% tariff, 20,000 tons were imported into the country, which caused 15 companies that were active in the production of compound compound to face problems. Of course, the same is true in masterbatch.

& nbsp;

In response to the question of how the masterbatch and compound conference will be held, he said: “Our view of holding the conference has been to raise the level of producer knowledge.” Elite experts and young people should come and be active in companies. We tried to create a connection between the university and the industry.

& nbsp;

In this conference, this connection was partly with informing and receiving articles that have user power, but part of our motivation was for students to come and see that there are such industries. The problem that exists now is that our universities They are central and have very little to do with industry. We wanted the students to come and see the industry up close and be in space, and this space would make their vision more real.

& nbsp;

According to Moayed, in order to do this, for the first time, we formed a student committee and consisted of postgraduate students from the universities of Tehran, Amir Kabir, Sharif, Research Sciences and Research Institute Polymer We selected two to three students. However, with the help of the professors, a committee of 12 people was formed, and we formed a telegram group, where we provided regular information. The students, according to other groups that were members, spread our news. Maybe our information model is useful for the industry, but it is not useful for the students. In order to attract students, we used them and provided information.
