Since the second half of last year, a surge of rising prices of raw materials caused by excess liquidity and supply side structural changes has swept the country. After the Spring Festival, with the constant increase of various forces, the price rising tide is becoming increasingly fierce.
"I have been working as a factory for more than ten years, and I have never seen such an increase in my impression. It is not one category but most categories; it is not three or five points, but 10% or 20%." Ms. Hu, who runs a communication electronics company in Bao'an, Shenzhen, told reporters.
Since last June, domestic commodity prices have continued to rise. According to CCTV Finance, copper rose by 38%, paper by 50%, aluminum by 37%, iron by 30%, zinc alloy by 48%, stainless steel by 45% and IC by 100%.
The overall price of wood, textile raw materials, copper, energy, electronic components, industrial paper and other industrial raw materials has increased significantly, disrupting the production plans of many end brand manufacturers, and blocking many production lines.
Since the second half of last year, corrugated paper, cardboard, white cardboard, coated paper and other industrial base papers have seen a sustained rise driven by the strength of upstream paper mills. After the Spring Festival, the paper mill danced with other raw material manufacturers, and the price began to jump. Special paper generally increased by 1000 yuan/ton, and some paper types even jumped by 3000 yuan/ton at one time. As we all know, the demand for wood in the paper industry is also great, and the rise of wood prices has also promoted the rise of paper prices.
The rising prices of raw materials have led to the rising production costs of enterprises in the terminal manufacturing industry. The rising prices of steel, wood, copper and other materials used in the piano manufacturing industry have brought considerable pressure to the entire piano industry.
With the increasing production costs of manufacturers, the profit margins of many manufacturing enterprises are constantly being compressed. In order to control production costs, many manufacturers will also increase the prices of their products accordingly. So we can see that the prices of many household products have increased significantly since the end of last year. For example, the prices of some household appliances, such as washing machines, televisions, range hoods, have increased by more than 10%, and even more than 20% for some products.
These raw materials are also needed in the production of musical instruments. The main components of musical instruments are wood, copper and iron are used for string orchestral music, and a lot of paint is needed for the appearance of musical instruments. Under the dual influence of inflation and the current rising price of raw materials, the price trend of the musical instrument industry will also be in an upward trend in the future.
The fact is that since the end of last year, some manufacturers have started to increase their prices
With the slow recovery of the global economy, countries and individuals are paying more and more attention to music education. The national demand for musical instruments is certainly growing.
As a piano shop, it is necessary to stock up in advance and stock up properly in response to fierce market competition; As a parent, we should also take a correct view of the price of musical instruments, buy early and enjoy early, buy late and increase the price, which not only delays the progress of children's piano practice, but also costs more money, which is really unworthy.
