“Research and Development Trend of China’s Organic Silicon Industry, 2013-2017” mainly analyzes the status quo of organic silicon at home and aboard, as well as China’s competitive status, import, export, business performance of main enterprise, technology status and development forecast; all of these provide enterprises and investors with decision-making reference.
China has become the largest consumer of organic silicon materials. Due to the large volume exports of textile, electronics and electrical products and the domestic vigorous demand in the fields of construction, textile, automobile and daily chemicals, China’s organic silicon material industry is promoted greatly. At present, China’s industry pattern is based on processing and manufacturing, which is very different with the organic silicon consumption structure in other countries and regions. In foreign countries, the consumptions of silicon rubber and silicon oil are equal, while China is mainly based on silicon rubber.
China has become the production center of organic silicon monomer gradually, and the well-known foreign enterprises have built production equipments in succession; although there is a certain gap between China’s organic production enterprises and foreign enterprises, with the continuous industry development, the gap of main technical indicators has been narrowed gradually, and some enterprises have reached the world advanced level.
Organic silicon industry maintains the momentum of rapid development, and the related enterprises make efforts to the integration of upstream and downstream industries by virtue of their advantages; therefore, there are a number of large-scale enterprises which own certain competitive advantages. In the field of monomer, the key enterprises are Bluestar, Wynca and Hoshine; as for silicon rubber field, the key enterprises are Dongjue, Hongda, Wynca, Baiyun and Zhijiang; and the industry chain integration includes Bluestar, Wynca and Hoshine. According to the statistics of Fluorine-silicon and Organic Silicon Special Committee, there were 16 organic silicon monomer production enterprises in China as of the end of 2012, and the production capacity was about 2 million tons.
In 2011, China’s organic silicon monomer production capacity has reached 1.76 million tons, which was much higher than the market demand; however, the output was only 1.15 million tons. In 2012, the actual output was about 1.3 million tons and the actual facility utilization was about 70%; of which, the operating rate in 2012H1 was less than 60%, and the monomer production enterprises suffered from comprehensive loss; after the August, the market demand picked up gradually and the operating rate reached over 80% by 2012Q4. However, the majority of enterprises are still unprofitable due to the low siloxane price.
