my country's polyvinyl chloride (PVC) industry market in 2020: calcium carbide process prevails


The industry is gradually coming out of the trough


Polyvinyl chloride, (Polyvinyl chloride PVC), polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polystyrene (PS) and ABS are collectively referred to as the five general-purpose resins. PVC has the characteristics of flame retardancy, wear resistance, chemical resistance, electrical insulation and easy processing. It is one of the wide variety of plastics in the application field. It is used in industry, construction, agriculture, daily life, packaging, electricity, and public utilities. Widely used in other fields.


Since 2016, with the gradual deepening of the supply-side structural reforms and the further strengthening of environmental protection, the supply and demand relationship in the PVC market has improved, and the industry has gradually come out of the trough. According to statistics from the China Chlor-Alkali Industry Association, China's current PVC production capacity in 2019 is 25.18 million tons (including 1.19 million tons of PVC paste resin), a year-on-year increase of 4.7%.


From the perspective of production capacity structure, my country's PVC industry is mainly based on calcium carbide production capacity, accounting for 81.3%, and the proportion of ethylene method is 18.7%.


Among the top ten companies in the PVC industry in 2019, there are 8 companies that use the calcium carbide method to produce PVC, with a total production capacity of 7.395 million tons per year. There are only two companies that use the ethylene method to produce PVC, namely Tianjin Dagu Chemical Co., Ltd. Qilu Branch of China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation has a total production capacity of 1.04 million tons/year.


Increased enterprise concentration


As the PVC industry's resource and energy constraints continue to increase, the requirements of environmental protection policies have gradually tightened, and the process of industrial optimization and merger and reorganization of the PVC industry has gradually advanced. The industry's competitive landscape is also constantly changing. In 2019, there are 73 enterprises with PVC production capacity in my country, which is 2 fewer than in 2018.


In terms of enterprise scale structure, there are 3 PVC production enterprises with an annual output of more than one million tons in China; 9 PVC production enterprises with a scale of 500,000 tons to 1 million tons per year; a scale of 30-50 The number of enterprises with 10,000 tons/year has decreased. The above-mentioned enterprises have become the main components of my country's PVC industry. In addition, the number of enterprises with a production capacity of less than 300,000 tons per year is steadily decreasing, and the relatively low concentration of PVC enterprises has improved.


In terms of production capacity, in 2019, the top three enterprises in the PVC industry production capacity were Zhongtai Chemical, Xinjiang Tianye, and Shaanxi Beiyuan, with annual production capacities of 1.73 million tons, 1.4 million tons, and 1.25 million tons, respectively. On the whole, enterprises with large domestic production capacity are mainly concentrated in the northwest, north and east of China.


Stable output growth


In recent years, with the rapid development of my country's economy, the demand for PVC has continued to increase, and domestic PVC output has generally maintained stable growth. In 2019, the PVC industry operating rate reached 80%, and PVC output reached 20.10 million tons, a year-on-year increase of 7.3%.


In terms of imports and exports, the volume of my country's PVC imports and exports fluctuated significantly from 2007 to 2019. In 2019, my country's PVC import volume was 670,000 tons and its export volume was 510,000 tons, both of which were down from 2018.


Since 2009, the apparent consumption of PVC in my country has been rising. According to the statistics of the China Chlor-Alkali Industry Association, my country's apparent PVC consumption reached 20.27 million in 2019, a year-on-year increase of 7.3%.


Polyvinyl chloride is the product with the largest output among the five domestic general-purpose resins, and is widely used in pipes, profiles, films, wires and cables, and floor leather. Compared with traditional building materials, PVC resin is more energy-efficient than traditional building materials in production and use, and it is a chemical material recommended and recommended by the state. In 2019, the demand for PVC for pipes and profiles reached 53.5%.
