Paraformaldehyde (abbreviated as PF) industry in China is still at its growing stage, though it has witnessed a fast development in the past few years. There are two main PF production methods, namely rake drying method and spray drying method, and most producers in China adopt rake drying method, which, lags behind spray drying method in technology.

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. China's PF supply in 2018 was deeply influenced by stricter environmental protection policies. Some producers stopped PF production, and China's PF capacity decreased with a year-on-year growth rate of -14.8%. Yet still some companies have/will set up PF plants in North China or Northwest China such as Ningxia, Xinjiang, and Gansu.

In China, PF is mainly consumed in agrochemical, resin and pharmaceutical industries. The agrochemical industry is the largest consumption field of PF, with a share of over 80% of total PF consumption volume in China. Resin is the second largest consumption field of PF, with a share of over 15%.
