China's paraformaldehyde (PF) industry has witnessed a fast development in the past few years. 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 of March 2017, there have been about 36 PF producers in China, with a total capacity of 743,000 t/a, with a year-on-year growth rate of 3.63%. The domestic PF capacity is estimated to keep increase to 856,000 t/a at the end of 2017 along with the launch of newly-built production lines.

With the increasing PF capacity, China's PF output has increased substantially, with a CAGR of 18.48% from 2006 to 2016. And China's output of PF reached 252,300 tonnes in 2016, increasing by 4.47% over that of the previous year.

The agrochemical industry is the largest consumption field of PF, taking up 80.88% of the total domestic PF consumption in 2016. The PF consumption volume in agrochemicals, mainly including glyphosate, acetochlor and butachlor, was 212,520 tonnes in 2016, up by 11.05% year on year. Moreover, glyphosate technical (AEA pathway) is the largest end use segment, and the consumption of PF in glyphosate accounted for 95.19% of that in agrochemical industry and 76.99% of the national total in 2016. The consumption of PF in resin industry decreased by 1.72%, accounting for 15.26% of the national total in 2016.

Objectives of this report are to present an in-depth and comprehensive view of Chinese PF market. CCM's goal of this research is to determine the current status of Chinese PF industry and assess its growth potential from 2017 to 2021. Having accumulated profound understanding on industrial chains of glyphosate, the most important downstream industry of PF, CCM will present an insight into PF market and future trends, together with its industry structure, including upstream products, applications, etc. A review of PF competitiveness is also provided in the report.
