September 8 is the "International Ship Ballast Water and Sediment Control and Management Convention," the date of effective entry, for many have been in the field of ballast water management system for many years, invested a lot of money manufacturers, this should be a "Happy big Ben" day. However, one and a half months ago, the IMO Marine Environmental Protection Committee at its 71st Session (MEPC 71) decided to install the ballast water management system for some existing ships at a stage so that the "ballast water The ultimate effectiveness of the Management Convention is compromised.

 
In recent years, as one of the few with the international well-known enterprises standing on the "same starting line" of the industry, China's ballast water management system industry is developing rapidly, although facing fierce market competition, but still showing a thriving scene: (USCG) certification, and a number of enterprises waiting in line for certification; some enterprises in the annual sales of ballast water management system can be discharged into the world's top five; some companies and world-renowned Ballast water system manufacturers to cooperate and jointly develop the market. Domestic ballast water management system manufacturers have long been doing a good job to enhance capacity, market development and after-sales service network construction and so on, look forward to with the "Ballast Water Management Convention" ushered in the "harvest season."
 
However, the "Ballast Water Management Convention" "discount" into the news gave the domestic ballast water management system manufacturers head poured a pot of cold water. On the one hand, many ballast water management system manufacturers put a lot of money early, human and material resources, for product development and certification, market development and after-sales service network, the urgent need for "cash" to ease the pressure; "Partial deferral of the Ballast Water Management Convention", some manufacturers choose to "leave", but also have more "entry", which means that the market competition will become more intense. In addition, the greater pressure on the ballast water management system comes from the mistrust of shipping companies, the US classification societies (ABS) recently on the shipowners and operators to launch a survey on the ballast water management system, there are 43% of the systems are "inoperable" or "problematic". Up to now, both domestic and foreign ballast water management system, in the process of running the ship have occurred in the accident, which for the manufacturers sounded the alarm.
 
With the increasingly well-developed market of ballast water management systems, it is clear that the way to develop a market by price war is clearly impracticable. Faced with this situation, domestic manufacturers must first increase the intensity of product research and development to speed up the upgrading of products to ensure that products in terms of quality, safety and other aspects meet the requirements of the owner, in the green, environmental and other aspects to meet the IMO standards , Followed by the need to strengthen cooperation with shipping companies, targeted for its operation of the ballast water management system to provide comprehensive training to avoid the long-term use of the system may not bring the potential risks to ensure that the system is safe and safe operation ; To continue to accelerate the USCG and other key organizations to ensure that the layout of the global routes of the owners to lift the worries to ensure that these shipping companies in the global routes can run smoothly; Finally, to continue to improve the global after-sales service network, and strive to provide coverage for the owner Follow-up maintenance, maintenance and other life-cycle services to improve their market competitiveness.
 
This is only a twists and turns in the long-term development of the ballast water management system, and the full implementation of the Ballast Water Management Convention is still imperative. "Despite the" discount " The Therefore, the "load forward" of the domestic ballast water management system manufacturers in the development of the market not only can not relax, but to pay more efforts to improve their own strength, to provide customers with cost-effective products. As long as we can stick to it, until the ballast water management system market is completely out of time, is the domestic ballast water management system manufacturers Yang Wei occasion.
 
Domestic ballast water management system manufacturers to correctly view the fact that even if the ballast water management system market outbreak to be time, still more than a patient and calm, less a heart and anxious, firm confidence, continue to increase the product Research and development, market development efforts to accelerate the speed of product certification, and further improve the global after-sales service network, in order to be able to stand out in the final battle of the market to lay a solid foundation.
