Survey of Fluorine Industry in China
Published: March 30, 2018 Content info: 109 Pages
Description

Fluorine industry has been one of the fastest developing and most promising chemical industries in China. And the country has become one of the largest fluorine production and consumption areas. Inorganic fluoride, fluor-refrigerant, fluor polymer and fluor-intermediate are four important sectors of China's fluorine chemical industry.

At present, domestic inorganic fluoride industry is developing rapidly, and domestic high-end techniques for inorganic fluoride production are close to the international advanced level. However, many domestic manufacturers still produce low-end inorganic fluoride products. And some of the refined products, such as electronic grade fluoride, still rely on import.

Fluorohydrocarbon is used in various industries such as refrigerant, foam beater, extinguishant, insecticide, medical and chemical. Among them, the refrigerant industry shares the largest consumption of fluorohydrocarbon. Refrigerants are mainly used in household refrigerators, automobiles, marine and household air conditioners, commercial refrigeration equipment, etc., and they not only can be used in producing new equipment, but also in maintenance. Currently, the replacement progress of refrigerants is being constantly accelerated in China.

Fluor resin is widely used in coatings, sealing, architecture, electronic and other fields. China is a major producer of fluor resin, but yet to be self-sufficient in high-end fluor resin products. At present, difference between import price and export price of fluor resin is still large and domestic enterprises need to work hard to develop advanced technology and high-end products. It is expected that domestic fluorine resin manufacturers will focus on developing PVDF, FEP, high-end and modified PTFE, and other fluorine-containing resins.

The applications of fluor rubber include automobile, petrochemical, aerospace, electric appliance, machine manufacture and light industry. Development of the fluor rubber industry in China has been restrained by lack of varieties and backward processing technology. It is expected that domestic fluor rubber manufacturers will pay more attention to the production of high-quality fluor rubber.

This report is a value analysis of the fluorine Industry in China, which covers the production, price, imports & exports, consumption of fluorite, refrigerant, inorganic fluorides and fluor polymer products. Besides, a future forecast on the development trend for these products will be analysed in this report.

This report is based on data collected via diverse sources. The primary sources include interviews with industrial experts, key players in fluorine Industry production. Various secondary sources include published magazines, journals, government statistics and CCM's database, etc. Data obtained from various sources have been combined and cross-checked to ensure that this report is as accurate and methodologically sound as possible.
