production and consumption of epoxy resin at home and abroad

December 20, 2002

epoxy resin has been produced for more than 50 years since it was industrialized in the United States in 1947. At present, the total production capacity of epoxy resin in the world is about 1.6 million tons/year, and the production and consumption are mainly concentrated in Western Europe, the United States, Japan and Taiwan, China province of China. Among them, the total production capacity of epoxy resin in the United States, Japan and Western Europe reaches more than 1.1 million tons, accounting for about 70% of the total production capacity of epoxy resin in the world. The main manufacturers of epoxy resin in the world are shell chemical company

(with a production capacity of 415000 tons/year), Ciba Jiaji company (with a production capacity of 239000 tons, the moving change torque coordinate is straight with the length direction of the paper on the recording paper/year), Dow Chemical Company

(with a production capacity of 235000 tons/year) Japan iron and Steel Chemical Corporation (production capacity of 124000 tons/year)

and Taiwan, China province of China (production capacity of 104000 tons/year), etc

at present, the total consumption of epoxy resin in the world is about 1.2 million tons/year, and the annual consumption of epoxy resin in the United States, Western Europe and Japan is about 800000 tons/year, accounting for about 67% of the total consumption of epoxy resin in the world. It is estimated that by 2005, the total production capacity of epoxy resin in the world will reach about 1.9 million tons, and the consumption will reach about 1.56 million tons, with an average annual growth rate of about

3.9%. From 1995 to 2000, the consumption of epoxy resin in Japan increased from 176000 tons to 180000 tons, of which the epoxy resin used in engineering and construction increased from 40000 tons to 45000 tons, and the underwater submarine decreased from 54000 tons to

5 10000 tons, and the field of electronic appliances has increased from 60000 tons to 60000 tons 10000 tons

domestic production and consumption of epoxy resin

the industrial production of epoxy resin in China began in 1958 and has a production history of more than 40 years, but it has been developing slowly before the 1980s. Since the reform and opening up, especially in the middle and late 1980s of Hunan Yueyang Baling Petrochemical Company, 3000 tons/year epoxy resin plant was introduced from Japan's Dongdu chemical company, and after Jiangsu Wuxi resin plant introduced 3000 tons/year epoxy resin plant from Germany's Bakelite company, China's epoxy resin industry began to develop greatly. At present, there are more than 170 epoxy resin manufacturers in China, with a total production capacity of about 140000 tons

/year. The main manufacturers are Hunan Yueyang Petrochemical General Factory epoxy resin factory (with a production capacity of 25000 tons/year),

Jiangsu Wuxi resin factory (with a production capacity of 15000 tons/year, which can be divided into: linear reciprocating friction and wear testing machine according to the friction movement mode) Jiangsu Wuxi Edison epoxy resin company (with a production capacity of 12000 tons/year), Jiangsu Yixing Sanmu group company (with a production capacity of 20000 tons/year), Guangdong Ciba

Polymer Chemical Co., Ltd. (with a production capacity of 10000 tons/year), Bluestar Lanzhou daily chemical plant (with a production capacity of 0.3

10000 tons/year), Dalian Qihua Chemical Co., Ltd. (with a production capacity of 20000 tons/year when doing experiments) Liaoning Shenyang Chemical Industry Group has

Co., Ltd. (production capacity of 35000 tons/year), Jiangsu Wuxi Guangming Chemical Plant (production capacity of 3000 tons/

), Jiangsu Kunshan chemical plant No. 2 (production capacity of 3000 tons/year) and Anhui Huangshan chemical plant (production capacity of 3000 tons/year)

In recent years, with the continuous development of China's national economic construction, the consumption of epoxy resin, an important basic chemical raw material, has doubled in the fields of electronics, electrical appliances, transportation and construction. In 1980, the national demand for epoxy resin was only about 6000 tons, and in 2001, the demand increased to about 170000 tons

in recent years, China's epoxy resin market demand has grown strongly, with an average annual increase of 17%. The domestic self-sufficiency rate is only about

32%, and the vast majority of products need to be imported

China's power industry is large-scale and is in the stage of rapid development. A large amount of epoxy resin is consumed from hydropower project construction, power generation, transmission and transformation to power consumption. In 1999, the epoxy resin castables for dry-type transformers reached 4000 tons, and the consumption of epoxy resin was about 2000 tons. It is expected that the demand for epoxy resin by castables will reach about 25000 tons by 2010

the demand for epoxy resin for high-voltage switches and transformers in China was about 4000 tons in 2000, and it is expected that the demand will reach about 10000 tons by 2010

both thermal insulation and fire protection performance

in the coating industry, epoxy resin is required for automotive electrophoretic paint and maintenance paint, and a large part of marine coating materials used in the shipbuilding industry are epoxy resin heavy-duty anti-corrosion coatings. Epoxy resin is also indispensable for container coatings and food tank coatings. China is the fourth largest powder coating manufacturer in the world, and the output of thermosetting powder coating epoxy resin accounts for 75%

at present, the annual consumption of epoxy resin in China's coating industry is about 75000 tons, accounting for about 46% of the total consumption of epoxy resin. It is estimated that the demand for epoxy resin in China's coating industry will reach about 100000 tons by 2005

at present, the demand for epoxy resin in the field of composite materials in China is about 45000 tons/year, which is also the main field of consumption of imported

epoxy resin. It is expected that the demand for epoxy resin in this field will reach about 80000 tons in 2005

at present, the demand for epoxy resin in the field of electronic and electrical appliances in China is about 15000 tons/year, and it is expected that the demand for

epoxy resin will reach about 250000 tons in 2005

at present, the demand for epoxy resin in the field of adhesives in China is about 4000 tons/year. Epoxy adhesives are widely used in urban residential engineering and civil construction, and have good development prospects. It is expected that the demand will reach about 10000 tons by 2005

there are more than 500 printed circuit board manufacturing enterprises in China, and the largest amount of insulation adhesive used for circuit boards is epoxy. Only brominated epoxy resin used for copper clad laminate, the domestic demand is 20000 tons/year

attracted by China's broad market prospects, large foreign epoxy resin manufacturers have seized the Chinese market,

and invested and built factories in China to realize localized supply of products. In 2001, Dow Chemical was approved by the Chinese government to build a high-quality epoxy resin plant with an annual output of 40000 tons in Zhangjiagang City, Jiangsu Province, which is planned to be put into operation in the first half of 2003, and plans to expand a 40000 ton/year liquid epoxy resin plant in 2004. Hongren group, a subsidiary of Formosa Plastics, has invested in the construction of an epoxy resin plant with an annual output of 60000 tons in Baiyun District of Guangzhou by introducing the chemical technology of Japan's eastern ministry, which has been put into operation this year. At that time, the tight supply and demand situation of high-grade epoxy resin in China will be eased to a certain extent
