Iron ore turns into "Crazy Stone"
iron ore, nicknamed "Crazy Stone", is the heaviest burden on the shoulders of the steel industry. According to the data of metallurgical planning and Research Institute, in recent years, as iron has greatly widened the scope of experiments, the demand for ore has increased vigorously, and the international trade price of iron ore has continued to rise. From 1990 to 2002, China imported less than 100 million tons of iron ore, and the CIF price of imported iron ore fluctuated around $25/ton during this period; After 2002, China's imported iron ore volume soared, reaching a record high of 686 million tons in 2011, and the annual average CIF price of iron ore reached the highest $163.8/ton in 2011. The import volume and import price of iron ore show this point compared with that before 2002, which can be proved by the initial wear of passive bearings, which has increased significantly historically. "At present, the financial operation of iron ore is very serious. The three major mines and other overseas mining monopoly giants make huge profits by controlling this project: expanding the production and shipping volume of TDI combined device through technological transformation (adjustment and addition of some equipment) and extending the operation time. You can see, the cost of $40, even if the current iron ore price falls to $110, the profit is still considerable." Li Xinchuang said. It can't be ignored that despite the difficulties of the steel industry, the import of iron ore is still high. According to the data released by the metallurgical planning and Research Institute, according to the prediction of pig iron output of 667 million tons in 2012, China's consumption of iron ore in 2012 was about 1.067 billion tons of multipurpose finished ore, which realized the universal experimental machine, with a year-on-year increase of 4.6%; Among them, the proportion of imported iron ore consumption is still more than 60%. According to the iron ore import volume of 610 million tons from January to October 2012, the iron ore import volume of this year is expected to be about 730 million tons. It is worth noting that, in addition to the fact that iron ore is dependent on imports, it is difficult to break the situation in the short term. At present, domestic mines are also facing the pressure of excessive tax burden. "The tax burden of domestic iron ore enterprises is more than 25%, which is higher than the level of other industries, while the tax burden of foreign mines is usually less than 10%. The excessive tax burden not only increases the cost of domestic mines, but also indirectly pushes up the international mine price. Therefore, it is very necessary to give domestic mines a fair tax burden." Li Xinchuang told. With regard to the operation of the steel industry next year, Li Xinchuang said that in 2012, under the background of China's slowing economic growth and the increasingly complex international economic environment, the development of downstream steel industries such as machinery and household appliances slowed down, and industries such as shipbuilding and containers showed negative growth. Although China's steel consumption increased, the growth rate fell significantly. In 2013, except that the development of shipbuilding industry showed a downward trend, and the container and household appliance industry maintained the development level of 2012, other industries will have different degrees of growth, so the demand for steel will continue to increase slightly. According to the view that China's crude steel output will reach 716 million tons in 2012, with a year-on-year increase of 4.5%, it is estimated that the crude steel output in 2013 will be 746 million tons, with a year-on-year increase of 4.2%
