Development prospect of Sisal hemp in China
With the deepening of people's understanding of the natural properties and advantages of sisal fiber and the increasing attention to environmental protection around the world, people's demand for sisal fiber products is increasing day by day, which aggravates the contradiction of the shortage of sisal fiber products in the market. In addition, because the sisal fiber has strong tension, and tough wear-resisting, coarse texture, elastic, not hardening in low temperature brittle fracture, non-perishable, no electrostatic effect, the price is low wait for an advantage, thus it can be widely instead of chemical fiber products, jute products and cotton products, this for the development of sisal fiber and products provides a very broad prospects for development. China's sisal products from the beginning of a single production of fiber, hemp rope has developed to more than a dozen series of more than 400 varieties, the initial formation of product standardization, serialization. In recent years, the demand for sisal products in China has also increased, and sisal fibers, especially high-quality sisal fibers, are in short supply. For example, the market demand of sisal fiber produced by Guangxi Agricultural Sisal Group Company is strong, and the export of Huari sisal products from Shunde, Guangdong is in short supply. At present in the world of sisal fiber and its products are in short supply of 300000 tons, although many countries want to restore the sisal production, increase the output of sisal fiber, but because it comes to climate, capital and labor, production technology and so on various aspects reason, therefore, expanding the sisal production is not three or five years can be realized, so the contradiction between supply and demand of international market of sisal products will exist over a longer period of time. Sisal hemp cultivation is a labor-intensive industry. In China, due to the large labor force and the wide area in the subtropical zone, there are very advantageous conditions for the development of sisal planting industry. Although the economic benefit of sisal planting is slightly lower than that of other industries (such as fruit industry), its income is stable, and sisal has the characteristics of drought resistance, easy planting, extensive management, long harvest period, etc., so it is particularly suitable for planting in poor areas. In recent years, China's agricultural and rural economic development has entered a new historical stage, which is basically marked by a fundamental change in the relationship between supply and demand of agricultural products, mainly reflected in the following two aspects: Due to the improvement of comprehensive agricultural production capacity, the supply of agricultural products has changed from long-term shortage to oversupply; As the degree of marketization increases, the development of agriculture and rural economy has changed from being constrained by resources to being constrained by both resources and demands, among which the guiding and restraining effects of market demand on agricultural development are becoming stronger and stronger. Sisal hemp is one of the few agricultural products that are in short supply at present when the general supply of most agricultural products exceeds demand. Therefore, sisal enterprises in Our country should take advantage of the good development opportunities they are facing at present, accelerate the industrial development, and make sisal planting and processing into an important pillar industry and a new economic growth point in hot rural areas of our country.
