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

China is the country that has the highest proven fluorite reserves. In 2016, it had recoverable fluorite reserves of about 40 million tonnes, next to South Africa. In 2016, the output of fluorite in the world is about 6.4 million tonnes, down by about 4% year on year. China remains the largest fluorite producer with 4.2 million tonnes of output in 2016, accounting for more than 65% of global total. Most of China's fluorite deposits are associated fluorite deposits, and the monomineral-fluorite deposits are relatively scarce. It is obviously that the available resources are limited.

In order to protect the fluorite resources, China has established fluorite industry access standards and carried out related policies to restrict the exploration and export of fluorite. The threshold for the entry of fluorite mining industry is getting higher and higher. With further integration of fluorite industry, small-scale manufacturers and the ones with inefficient technology are facing the situation to be eliminated. At the same time, the downstream industries of fluorine are continuously transformed and upgraded. Chinese government aims to raise the overall technical level of the industry, develop high value-added products and extend the industrial chain.

Since H2 2016, the Chinese government has paid much attention to environmental protection. In terms of the production safety risk and environmental pollution problems in the fluorine industry, China conducted frequent regulatory investigation. In particular, the fourth-round environmental inspection and the inspection of production safety from August to October 2017 cover fluorine companies across the country. Fluorite mining industry was impacted the most. Many small and medium-size fluorite enterprises were shut down. The overall operating rate of the fluorite industry enjoyed restrictions and progress of the industry consolidation has been accelerated.

This report aims to analyse the impacts of the policies on fluorine Industry in the aspects of fluorite, AHF, HFC-152a, HCFC-142b in 2014–H1 2017, revealing the reasons for the change of the fluorine Industry policies and the future trend for these policies, and focus on the information below:

- Overview of fluorine industry chain and current situation in China
- Policies on and changes in China’s fluorite, AHF, HFCs, HCFCs
- Impact of environmental regulatory actions on fluorite, AHF, HFC-152a, HCFC-142b manufacturers
- Forecast on the trend of Chinese policies on fluorine industry
- Analysis on the status and developing trend of fluorite resources in China
- Analysis on the production, price and consumption of fluorite, AHF, HFC-152a, HCFC-142b

The report is based on data collected via diverse sources. The primary sources include comments from industry experts. Various secondary sources include published magazines, journals, statistics from governments and international institutes 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.
