Building material manufacturing industry: Strong growth in quantity and quality

In recent years, the building materials manufacturing industry (building materials) has developed strongly in quantity, quality and type, meeting the increasing demand. on infrastructure construction, urban development and housing.

Step-by-step import substitution

In the framework of the implementation plan of the project “Development of materials industry to 2030, vision to 2045” submitted to the Politburo and Economic Commission of China The Central Government has just hosted the Seminar “Development of the building materials industry to 2030, with a vision to 2045”. Attending the seminar were Mr. Nguyen Duc Hien, Deputy Head of the Central Economic Commission; representatives of the Ministry of Construction, the Ministry of Science and Technology, associations, units, businesses and experts in the field of building materials.

At the seminar, Dr. Nguyen Quang Hiep – Deputy Director of the Department of Building Materials, Ministry of Construction – said that the production and use of building materials play an important role. contribute to the general development of the construction industry and the industry in general, creating a driving force for socio-economic development. The value of building materials usually accounts for 60% – 70% of the construction cost structure, so the quality and cost of construction materials greatly determines the quality and cost of construction.

Along with the general development of the country, the building materials industry in recent years has been constantly invested, innovated and developed. In all areas of production of building materials, there have been positive changes. “Production lines with outdated technology, low productivity, low consumption of raw materials and fuel, low efficiency, and environmental pollution are gradually eliminated. Newly invested factories apply advanced technology, modern equipment, many lines are equipped with a high degree of mechanization and automation, the level of technology is on par with advanced countries in the world. world” – emphasized Dr. Nguyen Quang Hiep.

According to Dr. Nguyen Quang Hiep, the development of building materials has gradually been more focused in the direction of sustainable development and environmental protection. Design capacity and output of some building materials products have increased 2-3 times compared to the period of 10-15 years ago. Product designs are diversified and abundant, product quality meets the standards of developed countries to meet the increasing and diversified demands of the domestic market, gradually replacing imported and exported goods. to the world market.

Give examples, Dr. Nguyen Quang Cung – Chairman of the Vietnam Cement Association – said that in general, policies have supported the development of Vietnam’s cement industry, so that Vietnam’s cement has made great progress in the past 20 years. past year. From a cement importer, Vietnam clinker has become a country of great stature in the international cement community. Vietnam’s total cement production ranks 3rd and 4th in the world after China and India, on par with Indonesia.

In other fields of production of building materials, the production of ceramic tiling materials, Vietnam is currently the 5th largest producer in the world. Types of construction materials products such as glass, sanitary ware, currently Vietnam has actively produced to meet domestic demand and only imported a few high-end products…

“The revenue of construction ceramics in 2019 reached 2.5 billion USD, creating jobs for over 40,000 direct workers and tens of thousands of related workers. Currently, the export market of construction ceramics has expanded to many countries around the world from the ASEAN region to Korea, Germany, Italy, USA, Russia, Cuba, Japan and many other territories. Those are the markets where Vietnamese construction ceramics have been present for decades to gradually create a Vietnamese construction ceramics brand” – Mr. Dinh Quang Huy – Chairman of Vietnam Construction Ceramics Association – share more.

Towards sustainable development

Speaking at the seminar, Mr. Nguyen Duc Hien – Deputy Head of the Central Economic Commission – emphasized, to successfully realize the goal of industrialization and modernization it is necessary to focus on developing the material industry, including the building materials industry. In recent years, the production of building materials has grown strongly in quantity, quality and types, meeting the increasing demand for infrastructure construction, urban development and housing. When Vietnam’s international integration deepens, the domestic construction materials industry is also affected by development trends in the world. Therefore, the promulgation of guidelines and policies for the building materials industry to develop quickly and sustainably is an urgent requirement.

Mr. Nguyen Duc Hien, Deputy Head of the Central Economic Commission emphasized, to successfully realize industrial goals Modernization and modernization need to focus on developing materials industry, including building materials industry

<3 sustainability, it also reveals inadequacies that need to be overcome such as: The investment and development of production for some types of construction materials is still unreasonable, the scale is small and scattered, the investment efficiency is not high; environmental restoration after mining minerals for construction materials has not been focused; production technology of building materials in some fields is still backward compared to the current level in the region and the world; Well-trained technical human resources in the field of building materials production are still thin, not commensurate with the increasing development requirements of the industry.

Accordingly, in the period of 2021-2030, with a vision to 2045, it is necessary to aim for sustainable development of the building materials industry; applying advanced science and technology in the production of building materials; save mineral resources, save energy, reduce greenhouse gas emissions; associate production of building materials with recycling and reuse of industrial and agricultural wastes, waste treatment and environmental protection; to step up the production of all kinds of building materials with high economic value; improve the competitiveness of construction materials products on domestic and international markets.

In particular, it is necessary to give priority to investment in new construction material production projects, large capacity projects using advanced technology in areas with favorable conditions for construction. raw materials, industrial development, transport infrastructure and near consumption markets; projects for production of building materials using large volumes of waste from industries, agriculture and domestic waste; combines the use of natural minerals with the use of recycled materials. Make the most of ash, slag, and gypsum emitted from thermal power plants, chemicals, fertilizers and other industrial facilities as raw materials and additives for the production of building materials…

With the same opinion, the representative of the Vietnam Building Materials Association suggested that in the coming time, the State should develop mechanisms and policies, amend and complete regulatory documents. violate the law in the direction of encouraging investment in the production of construction materials using energy saving, saving natural resources, increasing the rate of using raw materials and fuels recycled from industrial and agricultural waste and garbage. activities, reducing emissions to protect the environment. Limit, proceed to stop the production of building materials inefficiently using natural resources, causing environmental pollution.

Specifically, shutting down production facilities that do not meet standards and technical regulations on product quality and environment; raising the royalty rate of natural resources tax on clay for the production of fired bricks; promulgating regulations on certification and labeling of “green labels” for building material products; exemption and reduction of value-added tax for products of building materials that are certified and affixed with “green labels”; exemption and reduction of corporate income tax for businesses that have certified and “green-labeled” products, or use waste as raw materials and alternative fuels at a reasonable rate…

On behalf of the Project Editorial Team and the Central Economic Commission, Mr. Nguyen Duc Hien acknowledged the opinions of experts and units. The editorial team will synthesize and refine to absorb and add comments to the Project before finalizing it to submit to the Politburo.
