Stainless steel wire mesh use and market conditions
As the use of stainless steel wire mesh is very wide, as China's economic development, the demand for it is also growing. According to the relevant data, in 1998, the national output of stainless steel filaments was about 8,000 tons, and microfilaments were less than 300 tons. In the same year, China only used nets to consume stainless steel filaments of 15000-16000 tons, of which about 10,000 tons of stainless steel filaments and about 500 tons of stainless steel filaments. The production of stainless steel filaments and microfilaments, the raw material must be selected 304 and 316L high wire rod. Stainless steel wire drawing technology and products were mainly distributed in Hebei's Anping and Xinghua, Dongtai, etc. in China in the mid-1980s. A large number of home-style enterprises spread over the above areas, with poor equipment, low product quality, and some even fake and shoddy products. The price war between each other has brought the stainless steel wire mesh market into a disorderly state. In the mid to late 1990s, a group of foreign and Taiwanese companies entered the mainland wire drawing market. Due to their abundant funds, they have advanced stainless steel drawing technology and equipment, which has promoted the development of stainless steel wire mesh in China.
