After 100 years of development, Tangshan has gradually formed the pillar industries of steel, equipment, chemicals, energy and building materials, relying on the advantages of location, resources and ports. It has been named as the steel material industrialization base, National Torch Plan ceramic material industry base and “Northern Porcelain Capital”, which is an important energy and raw material base of the country.

1. The heavy chemical industry is in a dominant position. By the end of 2016, the proportion of the five major industries of steel, equipment manufacturing, energy, chemicals and building materials reached 70.4%. The annual output of iron is 88.95 million tons, crude steel is 88.31 million tons, finished steel is 118.37 million tons, power generation is 48.2 billion kilowatt hours, crude oil is 1.35 million tons, coke is 22.15 million tons, cement is 31.13 million tons, sanitary ceramics is 24.74 million pieces, railway passenger car is 517 vehicles, and soda ash is 3.48 million tons.

2. Leading enterprises continue to grow and develop. In 2016, there were 17 enterprises with an operating income of over 10 billion yuan and 2 enterprises with over 50 billion yuan. Five companies including Kailuan (Group) were among the top 500 Chinese companies in 2016, and seven companies including Jinxi Iron and Steel were among the top 500 Chinese manufacturing companies in 2016.

The comprehensive utilization rate of blast furnace gas, converter gas, coke oven 365正网开户gas, blast furnace water slag and steel slag is close to 100%. During the “12th Five-Year Plan” period, the energy consumption per unit of industrial added value decreased by 34.58%. In 2016, the c365正网开户oking capacity was 4.26 million tons, and the installed capacity of TRT power generation and coke (high) furnace gas power generation was 3257.8 MW.

5. The infiltration of information integration has been continuously strengthened. In 2009, Tangshan City entered the national two-integration test zone. In 2012 and 2014, it was selected as the national information consumption and the third batch of smart city pilots.
