In 2013, the global output of fluorite was 6.7 million tons, which slipped by 5.2% compared that of last year. China is the biggest fluorite producing country. And in 2013, China produced 4.3 million tons fluorite, accounting for 64.2% of the total output of the world. Mexico is the second largest fluorite producing country, and the output was 1.24 million tons in 2013, accounting for 18.5% of that of the whole world.
China’s fluorite consumption reached 4.03 million tons in 2013, increasing by 2.23% compared that of last year. The main fluorite consumption fields in China are steel industry, aluminum smelting industry, chemical industry, cement and glass industry, etc. The consumption structure represents as following: steel industry accounts for 13.3%; aluminum smelting industry accounts for 7.3%; chemical industry accounts for 29.4%; cement and glass industry accounts for 40.0%; others accounts for 10%.
China is located in the Pacific Rim Diagenesis belt, where there are abundant fluorite resources. The proved fluorite resources have distributed in 27 provinces in China (including municipalities and autonomous regions), amounting to 24 million tons fluorite reserves. Fluorite mines, which distributed in Hunan, Zhejiang, Inner Mongolia, Yunnan, Jiangxi, Fujian, Guangzhou and Guangxi, account for 90% of the total reserves in China. The medium and large-scale mineral deposits mainly center on Hunan Shizhuyuan, Hunan Taolin, Inner Mongolia Stunt Qagan Obo and Zhejiang Hushan.
The large fluorite producers in China are as following: Sinochem Lantian Co., Ltd, China Kings Resources Group Co., Ltd, China Shen Zhou Mining & Resources, Inc, Centralfluor Industries Group, Inc, and Zhejiang Wuyi Sehnlong Floatation Co., Ltd. As China’s control of fluorite recourses and the integration of fluorine chemical industry, the listed fluorine chemical enterprises have set foot in fluorite filed one after another, as what Do-Fluoride Chemicals Co., Ltd and Zhejiang Yongtai Technology Co., Ltd did.
