As an important material of many chemicals such as MDI and rubber ingredients,
the R&D of aniline in China is started in 1958, by Jilin Chemical Industry
Co., Ltd. And it has kept a strong growth since the 1980s. However, a large
quantity of aniline was needed to be imported because that the production of
aniline still failed to meet demand in domestic market before 2004.
Since 2004, the capacity of aniline in China soared sharply and little aniline
was imported since then. After about three years' capacity expansion, China's
aniline industry entered a stage of overcapacity in 2007. And impacted by the
world economic crisis in 2008 and 2009, both the demand and output of aniline
in China dropped during this period. Luckily, started in H2 2009, Chinese
government carried out a series of stimulus package to support the development
of aniline industry, the industry began to recover since then. And both the
production and market of aniline in China enjoyed a prosperous time during H2
2009 to 2010, which drove many producers decide to enlarge their capacity of
aniline. And these expansion plans have been proved irrational and
inappropriate afterwards. Especially after Yantai Wanhua, the largest consumer
of aniline in China, launches its own aniline production line in early 2011,
the situation of overcapacity in China gets worse.
Meanwhile, as the consumption of aniline in MDI industry and rubber ingredient
industry increased so fast in the past few years, they became the largest and
second largest consumption field of aniline in China, with occupation of over
65% and 16% respectively. What's more, their occupation in aniline market
increase faster than those of other downstream fields, so the occupation of
other fields is expected to decline in the next few years.
Generally speaking, MDI industry and rubber ingredient industry is expected to
be the largest two consumption fields of aniline in the next five years where
In order to point out the facts of the aniline industry in China and discuss
the future trend, CCM International made great efforts on the aspects listed
- Current capacity distribution among producers, including captive and
- Import/export situation of aniline and its raw material nitrobenzene,
- Price change of aniline in recent years,
- Consumption pattern of aniline by downstream fields,
- Key driving factors and barriers to aniline industry in the next five years
CCM stands for China Chemicals Market, which represents the parent company of two subsidiaries. One is Guangzhou CCM Information Science & Technology Co., Ltd. (its predecessor is Guangzhou CCM Chemicals Co., Ltd., established in Guangzhou in 2001) as the first local Chinese consulting company in the field of Primary Intelligence Data Market Research and the other is CCM International Limited registered in Hong Kong which extends CCM's activities to Newsletters and Events.
Headquartered in Guangzhou, one of China's most dynamic economic regions, CCM has been providing world-class consultancy services to investors and corporations about world markets with focus on China and Asia Pacific Rim. It has established solid relationships with specialty chemical manufacturers, distributors, media, governmental agencies, universities and research institutions.
