Zirconium resources are highly concentrated across the globe. A overwhelming majority of zirconium ore reserves are in the hands of Austrilia and South Africa which made up 80.96% of the global total in 2013. In 2013, the gross reserves of zirconium ore resources in China hit 500,000 tons, standing at less than 1% of the world’s total, largely spreading in Southeasten coastal regions like Hainan, Guangdong and Guangxi as well as Southwesten regions such as Sichuan and Yunnan. In recent years, China has made continuous efforts in launching uhligite exploitation projects in overseas countries such as Mozambique and Indonesia progressively.

Zirconium is widely applied in such fields as ceramics, chemicals, casting and CRT TV kinescope glass. In 2013, the demand for zirconium for ceramics use accounted for 54%, while the demand for chemicals and casting use made up 28% all together. Zirconium chemicals find wide application in chemical engineering, textile, papermaking, cosmetics and electronics industries. China, as a manufacturing hub in the world, is fueld by the robust development of aforementioned sectors.

China boasts the world’s largest processing base of primary zirconium. In 2013, 90% zirconium oxychloride and zirconium silicate in the world were produced and processed in China, of which, above 85% were exported to the United States, Japan and Europe for the production of ceramics, zirconium dioxide products and nuclear-grade zirconium sponge.
