This LPS provides an in-depth understanding of the market for metal surface treatment chemicals in Mainland China. The survey was conducted in 2H 2014.
Analysis focuses on domestic sales of surface treatment chemicals, split into a total of eight product categories (Steel Cleaner, Steel Conversion Coating, Steel Passivation Liquid, Anti-corrosion Oil, Steel Decreasing Agent, Aluminum Cleaner, Aluminum Passivation Liquid and Aluminum Degreasing Agent).
A quantitative and qualitative assessment of the following is included:
The following figure shows a breakdown of the interviews conducted for this study.
The overall market for the eight featured products grew by 6.9% in 2014, and is expected to maintain this steady pace in the next five years.
Metal surface treatment chemicals are applied before and after coating process and are used to alter the surface of steel or aluminum, such as tarnish removal, corrosion resistance, electrical conductivity modification, adhesion improvement, etc. The study covers metal surface treatment chemicals sold in the Chinese market, segmented by resin type into eight categories: Steel Cleaner, Steel Conversion Coating, Steel Passivation Liquid, Anti-corrosion Oil, Steel Decreasing Agent, Aluminum Cleaner, Aluminum Passivation Liquid and Aluminum Degreasing Agent.
Featured in this study, Steel surface treatment chemicals' end-user industries include Steel, Automotive, Home Appliance, General Device, Heavy Machinery, Metal Hardware, Railway Vehicles, Motorcycles and Components, Transportation, Aviation, Compressor Manufacturing, among others. Aluminum surface treatment chemicals' end-user industries include building aluminum, industrial aluminum, rail vehicle profile, aluminum foil processing, aluminum radiator, mounting aluminum, among others.
Reaped the benefit from a loose market structure and feverish expansion in steel and automotive industries, metal surface treatment chemical market nearly doubled over the past few years. Structural changes in overall industrial sector will present as challenges going forward.
Market Entry High-end products are mostly imported from abroad and usually supplied by foreign companies. High-end supplier should consider entering into preciously untapped industries as the market matures. Regional Focus The highest revenues are achieved in East China with a quarter (25%) of all revenues. Moreover significant revenues can be found in the South (22%), the North (16%) and Central China (16%). Trends Heavy metal and phosphate emissions are the biggest issues for surface treatment chemical selection and usage, presenting both challenges and opportunities. Growth become more steady with concerns of downstream industry stalling and will be difficult to return to double-digit pace of the past. Market Structure Primarily comprised of multinational and private suppliers, the market for metal surface treatment chemicals is quite dilute. GCiS estimates that there are around 350 active companies operating in the Chinese marketplace. Overall, local suppliers and multinational companies split the market by 82% and 18%.
