As the petrochemical and basic chemical profit margins shrink
After half a century of development, there are nearly 25 categories, more than 30,000 kinds of products, annual output of about 1,500 billion yuan, and including technology development, intermediate production, synthesis, preparation, compounding and technical services, processing more complete industrial system. But technological level is not high, is still the restricting bottlenecks of China’s fine chemical development.
Although the Chinese self-developed a number of internationally advanced level of fine chemicals, such as citric acid, xanthan gum, sorbic acid, long chain dicarboxylic acid, itaconic acid, hyaluronic acid, biological polyacrylamide, polypropylene catalyst has been among the international market. However, the level of backward technology and equipment result in the development of China’s fine chemical is far lower than developed countries. Many domestic enterprises device or workshops, in the process route, unit operations, product handling and other aspects still remain in the level of the 1970s, the level of automation, application development and technical services to keep up. In some new areas of development, such as hydrogenation, Copper Chromite(CC), continuous nitration, adiabatic nitration, the liquid sulfur trioxide sulfonation, functional polymer materials, fine ceramics, LCD, information products, such as nano-materials is still very weak, or just getting started.The rate of fine chemicals has become a measure of a country or region chemical development of the main signs. As the petrochemical and basic chemical profit margins shrink, more and more developed countries, and the core of a large petrochemical industry will shift to the direction of fine chemicals, and intended to biotechnology, new materials, new energy technologies as a leader to seize the high ground of the future primary means. Although China from ‘sixty-five’ start, after 20 years of development, the construction of a large number of fine chemicals plant, built a number of fine chemical industry base, or park, fine chemical rate has reached 48%, but there is still great compared with other countries the gap.
According to statistics, the U.S. DuPont fine chemicals business has accounted for 60% of sales; the Swiss company Ciba fine production of fine chemicals and other professional companies, fine chemical sales total sales 80% -90%; Germany BASF, Hoechst and Bayer chemical company and three British chemical company ICI will be fine as a key development, the rise significantly. Some developing countries are to accelerate the development of basic petrochemical industry, Musk R-1 while speeding up the introduction of advanced Western technology to transform the traditional chemical production, and construction of large-scale multi attract foreign investment, advanced chemical production plant.International trends show that the development of fine chemicals, scientific and technological competition will be intensified, a worldwide restructuring will be China Chunmee Teas Manufacturers inevitable.
