China's paraformaldehyde (PF) industry has witnessed a fast development in the past few years. China is still a net PF importer, though its PF export volume had increased rapidly since 2009. There are still two main technologies to produce PF, namely rake drying method and spray drying method. PF industry in China is currently at its growing stage. Its capacity has been growing so rapidly that the demand growth could not catch up with it. The problem of overcapacity has become more serious in recent years. As a result, PF producers' bargaining power is becoming weaker and weaker. Meanwhile, the profit rate in PF industry is decreasing.

The domestic PF production is mainly distributed in Hebei, Shandong and Jiangsu provinces, relying on abundant supply of raw materials especially methanol and convenient transportation. As there are more and more producers, China's PF output has increased substantially, with a CAGR of 4.29% from 2015 to 2017. It reached 262,650 tonnes in 2017, increasing by 4.10% over that of the previous year. But the speed of increase had slowed down as the environmental protection policy. With the rising domestic demand, the demand for PF is expected to keep increasing from 2018 to 2022.

In China, PF is mainly consumed in agrochemical, resin and pharmaceutical industries, etc. The agrochemical industry is the largest consumption field of PF. The PF consumption volume in agrochemicals, mainly including glyphosate, acetochlor and butachlor, was 219,230 tonnes in 2017, up by 3.16% year on year. Meanwhile, the growing resin demand from overseas market, resulting in the consumption of PF in resin industry was up by 5.99%.
