    The United States has announced a significant increase in tariffs! The aluminum tariff has been raised to 25%, which may exacerbate the external strength and internal weakness of aluminum prices. May 15, 2024
    On May 14, 2024, the Office of the United States Trade Representative (U) announced the results of the four-year review of the Section 301 tariffs on China. They have decided to further increase the tariffs on electric cars, lithium batteries, photovoltaic cells, critical minerals, semiconductors, as well as steel and aluminum, port cranes, and personal protective equipment (concentrated in seven sectors) imported from China, on top of the existing Section 301 tariffs. Specific, the tariff on Chinese electric cars will be increased from 25% to 100%. The tariff on lithium-ion batteries and their components for electric vehicles will rise from the current 7.5% to 25%. The tariff on solar panels will increase from 25% to 50%, and the tariff on semiconductors will go up from 25% to 50%. The tariffs on certain steel and aluminum products will be raised from 0-7.5% to 25%. Additionally, the tariff on natural graphite, permanent magnets, and certain other critical minerals will be increased from zero to 25%. China firmly opposes and strongly protests against these measures. The White House website released a statement indicating that the Biden administration will maintain the tariff policies implemented by the previous Trump administration and increase tariffs on other goods. The White House claims that the new measures will impact approximately $18 billion worth of imported goods from China, including steel and aluminum, semiconductors, batteries, critical minerals, solar panels, and cranes. Chinese response: Will take resolute measures. The spokesperson of the Ministry of Commerce stated that the US side, driven by domestic political considerations, has abused Section 301 tariff review process and further increased tariffs on certain Chinese products. This moveizes and instrumentalizes trade issues, and represents a typical case of political manipulation. China strongly expresses its dissatisfaction with this. The WTO has already ruled that Section 301 tariffs violate WTO rules. Instead of making corrections, the US side persists in its wrongdoings. The spokesperson of the Ministry of Commerce stated that the U.S. side, for domestic political considerations, has abused the 301 tariff review process and further increased tariffs on certain Chinese products. This politic and instrumentalization of trade issues are typical political manipulations, and China expresses strong dissatisfaction with this. The has already ruled that the 301 tariffs violate WTO rules. Instead of correcting its mistakes, the U.S side persists in its wrong actions. The spokesperson further mentioned that the U.S. increase in the 301 tariffs goes against President Biden's commitment of not seeking to suppress or contain China's development and not seeking to decouple or disengage from China. It also contradicts the spirit of consensus reached between the leaders of the two countries and will severely impact the atmosphere of bilateral cooperation. The U.S. side should immediately correct its wrongdoings and cancel the additional tariffs on China. China will take resolute measures to defend its legitimate rights and interests. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said that China has always opposed unilateral imposition of tariffs that violate WTO rules and will take all necessary measures to safeguard its legitimate rights and interests. An anonymous senior U.S. official stated that some of the tariff increases will take effect at a later time to allow for a transition period for the United States to expand domestic production capacity. According to China Jincai Fortune Futures, the recent increase in tariffs by the United States on certain Chinese steel and aluminum products may have a significant impact on the price of aluminum. This is because China's exports of aluminum and aluminum products to North America accounted for around 20% of the total 2023. If the new tariffs are implemented, it could heavily impact domestic aluminum exports, while the expectation of aluminum shortages overseas may continue to rise. Additionally, with the sanctions on Russian aluminum by the United Kingdom and the United States, followed by the U.S. actions against China, there may be a suppression effect on the market in the short term due to the increase in international prices. However, in the medium term, as Russian aluminum flows into the domestic market and if there is sufficient supply of spot goods, it may exert pressure on the market.

  • Even after using cans for so many years, you still can't guess what's hidden in that mysterious bulge.
    Even after using cans for so many years, you still can't guess what's hidden in that mysterious bulge. Mar 26, 2024
    You must have had soda before, and you probably used a can as well. But if were to ask you what's inside that raised ring on the edge of the can, you probably wouldn't have a clue. Let's rule out one option first—the ring is not hollow. I bet you can't figure it out no matter how hard you try. In reality, that ring contains liquid. But what kind of liquid is it? Let me explain. The contents of that ring are closely related to the manufacturing process of the can itself. In fact, the can is made of aluminum sheets. These sheets are about 0.3 millimeters thick and are formed by being pressed against a tool called a drawing die. Continuing from there, a cylindrical object (unch) is forcefully from the top down into the aluminum sheet, forming a short cylindrical object resembling an ashtray. This process is called drawing. However, with just one drawing step, the circular disc is still wide and thick, and it has not yet reached the final shape of a beverage can. Therefore, further drawing is required. Each subsequent stamping process thins out the cylinder formed by the aluminum sheet, reducing its radius and increasing its height. After several stamping processes, the initially round sheet takes on the of a beverage can. Now, only two steps remain to complete the manufacturing process of a beverage can. The first step is to create the concave bottom of the can, and the second step is to seal it with a lid. To create the concave bottom, a tool with a rounded dome shape is used. The process is similar to stamping, where the can is pressed onto the semi-spherical tool to form the concave shape. But why does the can a concave bottom.Because the concave bottom, like an arch bridge, can withstand greater pressure. All of these steps together take only about one-seventh of a second. After trimming the top of the can neatly, it can be sprayed with outer packaging. The inside of the aluminum can also needs to be coated, otherwise acidic beverages will react with the aluminum, and you would end up consuming a lot of aluminum, which can lead to neurological disorders. (That's why they say not to eat youtiao made with alum, same principle.) Next, a thinner neck is pulled out for the can to prevent the thin aluminum from wrinkling. Now, it's time for the most crucial part - sealing the beverage can. Firstly, the edge of the neck is folded to form a flange. Then comes the fascinating process of double seaming. Back in 1810, tin cans were invented, and initially, the can lid and bottom were directly welded to the cylindrical can, resulting in food contamination from the welding materials like lead. Nowadays, beverage cans commonly employ double seaming to eliminate such issues. Double seaming is a relatively recent invention. In 1894, Ams machine company started producing double seaming machines for canning. What does double seaming mean? The flange and the lid form a shape resembling a spring roll. Although double seaming may seem ordinary, it requires high precision. A difference of just 1 millimeter can lead to a failed sealing process. However, double seaming alone cannot completely seal the can from the inside and outside. Do you see the gaps within this double seaming layer? These gaps are filled with a liquid sealing compound to prevent gas from escaping through the gaps in the seam and to safeguard the can from external contaminants.
  • An can-container rate of 32.5%—what does it mean for the beer industry?
    An can-container rate of 32.5%—what does it mean for the beer industry? Mar 21, 2024
    "In 2022, the overall canning rate in the beer industry has reached 32.5%. With a beer production volume of approximately 35 million hectoliters in 2022, it translates to 11.5 million hectoliters of beer being packaged using can materials. If we consider the most common packaging format of 330iliters, this to approximately 35 billion cans." During the recent launch event "AB InBev Asia Pacific's Carbon Journey with Aluminum" held by AB InBev Asia Pacific, Ms. Yuan Yue, the Secretary-General of the Beer Branch of China Alcoholic Drinks Association, shared a set of data regarding beer aluminum cans. The increasing canning rate, reaching 32.5% in the beer industry, carries significant implications. Translated into English, it means: Beer is already a packaging-sensitive industry, and with the continuous rise in packaging costs, the increase in the canning rate significantly impacts cost reduction and efficiency enhancement as well as the industry's transition towards premiumization. Moreover, aluminum cans with higher recycling rates contribute to the green and sustainable development of the beer industry, opening up more possibilities. In recent years, major beer giants in China have simultaneously increased their product canning rates. Taking Qingdao Beer as an example, data shows that its beer canning rate reached 27% in 2021, and the proportion of canned products has been steadily increasing. According to calculations by Guoyuan Securities, canned beer products have a profit margin approximately 10% higher than bottled products, and every 10% increase in the canning rate can push the profit margin up by 1-2 percentage points. Whether in production or transportation processes, cans, which are easy to store and have lower costs, offer better cost-effectiveness compared to glass bottles. Beer products primarily use aluminum two-piece cans, which are small in size, lightweight, and have a high recycling rate. They have lower energy consumption during production and are more environmentally friendly compared to glass bottles. They also have excellent compressive and shock resistance properties compared to glass bottles. Furthermore, two-piece cans have lower loss rates and can extend the transportation radius of beer, making them more suitable for large-scale beer production. The packaging of two-piece cans is highly adaptable and can quickly respond to changes in consumer scenarios and brand personalization upgrades. In the context of intense competition in the beer industry, cost reduction and efficiency improvement, as well as premiumization, have become common goals for beer manufacturers. Additionally, with the increasing demand for canned beer in the consumer market, the canning rate in the domestic beer industry continues to rise. According to a research report by Guotai Junan, the average annual increase in the canning rate over the past 10 years is approximately 0.8%. As the main terminal demand market for two-piece cans, the beer industry is estimated to generate an annual demand growth of 1 to 2 billion cans. Despite the significant demand, the current canning rate for beer in China is still relatively low compared to the international market. According to Euromonitor statistics, the canning rate for beer in China, using only two-piece cans, was 26.3% in 2021, while the canning rate in the US beer market is close to 70%, and in the Japanese market, it reaches as high as 90%. Considering the current development trend of the beer market, the canning rate for beer in China is expected to further increase, benefiting the upstream packaging industry. Benefiting Upstream Industries The demand for canned beer in the downstream market accounts for nearly 60%, while tea beverages and other carbonated drinks maintain around 20% each. The increasing canning rate of beer undoubtedly brings new opportunities for the development of the upstream aluminum can packaging industry. Baosteel Packaging has previously stated that with the continuous improvement of the canning rate of beer, it will contribute incremental demand to metal packaging, driving the overall demand for metal packaging products. Leading metal packaging company ORG (including Ball) is a major upstream supplier for companies such as AB InBev Asia Pacific, China Resources Beer, Tsingtao Beer, and Yanjing Beer. By the end of 2021, ORG's canning capacity had reached 13.5 billion cans. According to ORG's semi-annual report, its canning capacity reserve is still increasing. The construction investment of its Jiangmen canning factory project and Zaozhuang canning project is still increasing, with the Jiangmen canning factory project already reaching 99% completion. COFCO Packaging's revenue from aluminum packaging business (including canning and single-sheet cans) increased by 5.2% in the first half of this year. Despite the promising prospects, the aluminum metal packaging industry has a long supply chain and is susceptible to aluminum price fluctuations. Moreover, the aluminum industry is a high-pollution and high-energy-consuming industry, and under domestic environmental policies, production capacity is strictly limited. Meanwhile, downstream industries such as construction, automotive, energy, and food are gradually increasing their demand for aluminum. Combined with reduced production by foreign aluminum companies, the continuous rise in aluminum prices in recent years has directly led to price increases in downstream beer products. A thematic report from Citic Securities shows that foreign electrolytic aluminum production capacity may still be affected by the European energy crisis or expectations of production cuts. Domestic electrolytic aluminum inventory is at a low level, making it difficult to bridge the gap in overseas demand for electrolytic aluminum. It is expected that the decline in aluminum prices in 2023 will be limited, and prices are likely to remain at a high level. The growth rate of can prices is expected to be controlled within high single digits, providing less pressure for the beer industry compared to the overall level in 2022. Amidst the high fluctuation of aluminum prices and the rising trend of energy conservation and emission reduction, recycled aluminum is entering the field of vision of beer companies as a strategic layout for upstream metal packaging enterprises. Currently, beer giants such as China Resources Beer and AB InBev Asia Pacific have started collaborating with upstream suppliers to launch recycled aluminum projects and deepen the development of a green industrial chain. The actions of industry leaders provide insight into the long-term commitment of beer companies to green and sustainable development. According to data, the demand for two-piece cans in China's market exceeded 55 billion cans in 2022. Calculated based on a 60% market share for the beer industry, beer cans accounted for over 33 billion units. Furthermore, according to the International Aluminum Institute, China currently has a recycling rate of over 98% for used beverage cans, making it the largest aluminum can recycling country in the world. Beer, which dominates the aluminum can market, shows enthusiasm for the aluminum industry not only because of cost control considerations but also due to the development of a green industry chain. It is reported that AB InBev Asia Pacific has achieved the equivalent utilization of approximately 6,000 tons of recycled aluminum cans. In addition, they have introduced more low-carbon "lightweight cans," reducing the use of approximately 2,700 tons of aluminum. The aluminum packaging has achieved a carbon emission reduction of over 40,000 tons, with a reduction of over 30% in carbon emissions per can. From the emphasis placed by beer giants on the upstream packaging industry, it is evident that the demand for green development in the beer industry has already spread throughout the entire supply chain. Within this context, apart from creating a healthier industrial value chain, it is important to recognize the intensifying competition in the current beer market. Embracing green and low-carbon practices in the current discourse of high-quality sustainable development often signifies embracing value and the future. The choices made by beer giants regarding green development will become one of the key influencing factors in the ongoing upscale adjustments in the beer industry.
