Consequences from unhealthy competition

According to experts, there is currently a surplus of domestically produced steel sheets to supply the domestic market, but consumption and imports are equal, so steel sheet businesses are increasingly facing difficulties. More worryingly, if the import situation continues for a long time, it will be very difficult for domestic businesses to compete, leading to the risk of bankruptcy.

It is worth mentioning that imported products are mostly of poor quality, and many products show signs of trade fraud. For example, good quality colored corrugated iron will have many layers of plating, but Chinese products all have reduced plating layers to reduce costs. In particular, the provisions of the ASEAN-China FTA Agreement that by 2018, the alloy import tax will be 0% will be a huge advantage for China’s cheap steel…

First of all, consumers have to bear the consequences of using products of poor quality. Products, especially corrugated iron roofing, after a few years of use, become rusty, leak water… As a result, consumers have to spend money on repairs, or even have to completely replace the roofing, which is very expensive. least. Meanwhile, because it is a floating product, fake and imitation goods, there is no warranty. So, had to suffer the situation of “lost money, handicapped”, not knowing who to call.

For domestic steel sheet manufacturing enterprises, in order to compete on price with cheap imported products, businesses are forced to buy and use poor quality raw steel; Invest in cheap production lines, using outdated technology… Finished products, especially galvanized steel sheets, have reduced plating; Product quality is far lower than the company’s announced information. In addition, many small businesses, for profiteering, make imitation products of reputable brands but at lower prices, creating unfair competition in the market…
