    On November 17 , the " 2020 China Polycarbonate Industry Development Blue Book" ( hereinafter referred to as the Blue Book ), written by the Polycarbonate Branch of the China Synthetic Resins Association, was published in Haikou.

    On November 17 , the " 2020 China Polycarbonate Industry Development Blue Book" ( hereinafter referred to as the Blue Book ), written by the Polycarbonate Branch of the China Synthetic Resins Association, was published in Haikou.

    The blue book analyzes the current development of the domestic polycarbonate industry: on the one hand, China’s polycarbonate production capacity will show a "blowout growth" in the next few years, which will surely promote the rapid development of China’s polycarbonate industry ; on the other hand, the domestic polycarbonate industry The growth rate of production capacity is not equal to the growth rate of demand.
    Although a large number of repeated constructions can meet the market demand for the mass commercialization of low-end products, it may also lead to overcapacity in the industry as a whole.

    Although a large number of repeated constructions can meet the market demand for the mass commercialization of low-end products, it may also lead to overcapacity in the industry as a whole.

    According to statistics, over the past 5 years, China's polycarbonate production capacity growth, from 2015 years of 67.
    5
    Wandun / annual growth to 2020 year-end 179 Wandun / years, the average annual growth rate of over 20% .
    As domestic companies invest in new installations, China's polycarbonate production capacity will further increase.
    It is estimated that
    by 2025 , the domestic polycarbonate production capacity is expected to exceed 4.
    5
    million tons per year, and the average annual growth rate will still exceed 20% .
    The growth rate of domestic polycarbonate demand will remain at
    3%-5% , and domestic polycarbonate demand will exceed 3.
    3
    million tons
    by 2025 .
    The growth rate of production capacity is much higher than the growth rate of demand.

    To this end, the Polycarbonate Branch of the China Synthetic Resins Association submitted to the Development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and other government departments in 2019 the "China Polycarbonate Industry Development Survey Report" on "China's polycarbonate industry investment is overheated, and it is urgent to prevent excessive production capacity.
    "
    In April 2020 , in the new version of the industrial adjustment guidance catalog, polycarbonate production is no longer included in the "encouraged" project.

    Looking at the development of the global polycarbonate industry, established European and American companies represented by Covestro, SABIC and Trinseo , Japanese companies headed by Mitsubishi, Teijin, and Idemitsu, as well as South Korean companies such as Lotte and LG , still occupy A leading position in the global market.
    Although my country's polycarbonate industry has achieved rapid development, it is generally in the cultivation stage, and there are still many problems and deficiencies.

    Although my country's polycarbonate industry has achieved rapid development, it is generally in the cultivation stage, and there are still many problems and deficiencies.

    First, compared with international industry giants, the performance stability, data accumulation and technological maturity of polycarbonate products in our country cannot support the demand for quality development of drafts.
    High-performance and high-quality polycarbonate materials for special applications still rely on imports.
    .
    Second, the cooperation between industry, university, research and application is not close, and R&D and investment in frontier fields are obviously insufficient.
    Most of the key technologies and invention patents of polycarbonate in high-end applications are monopolized by large foreign companies.
    Third, the layout of the polycarbonate industry is not reasonable enough, and there is insufficient inter-regional cooperation and differentiated division of labor.
    It is squeezed by high performance and low cost in market competition.
    Fourth, the industry as a whole needs sound guidance and regulation, and it is urgent to prevent excessively low-level and low-quality production capacity.
    Fifth, the lack of compliance, environmental protection and certification of domestic products.

    On the one hand, the production capacity of low-end products is increased, showing a situation of surplus ; on the other hand, high-end products still rely on imports.
    In this regard, the Blue Book puts forward suggestions on the development of the industry.
    In the process of explosive growth of the polycarbonate industry, manufacturers must strictly control polycarbonate resin to ensure the high quality and quality stability of domestic polycarbonate raw materials, and carry out technological innovation on this basis.
    In view of the application field of polycarbonate and the international and domestic market demand, it is necessary to increase the development and production of series of high-performance polycarbonate blends.
    The blending modification method can better broaden the design space and degree of freedom, so as to Make the relevant material design meet the development needs of differentiation and high-end, develop products that can occupy emerging markets, and obtain high value-added products.
    Next, the leading edge should be focused in the polycarbonate industry of high-performance composite materials, such as
    5G -related applications, new energy, aerospace, optical elements, optical information .

    The state should specifically encourage the development of mid-to-high-end polycarbonate products to avoid the disadvantage of a structural shortage of high-end products in the future in the case of overall overcapacity.

    Zheng Kai, chairman of the China Synthetic Resins Association, said in his concluding speech at the press conference that polycarbonate, as an important member of the engineering plastics family, has outstanding characteristics such as high transparency, high impact resistance, and heat resistance, and superior comprehensive performance.
    Very extensive.
    With the development of social economy, the demand for engineering plastics is an inevitable trend.
    At present, domestic consumption of polycarbonate accounts for more than
    40% of the total consumption of engineering plastics , and it occupies an important position in the national economy.

    However, with the continuous advancement of the plastic circular economy, the voice of "plastic limit order" is constantly rising, and the sustainable development of the polycarbonate industry is also facing new challenges.
    He emphasized that plastic recycling is no longer a simple cost reduction.
    If waste plastics are not effectively recovered and recycled, it will cause huge pollution and damage to the ecological environment of our country.
    He called on leading companies in the polycarbonate industry to actively take precautions.
    On the one hand, improve the physical recycling of materials in China and strive to achieve a closed loop
    ; on the other hand, invest a lot of technical force and R&D funds to commit to chemical recycling to solve physical problems.
    Recycling hard-to-solve problems.
    It is recommended that the government should increase industry and industry publicity and adopt various measures to deal with plastic pollution.
    Actively encourage more relevant parties to participate in the process of mechanical recycling and chemical recycling of polycarbonate.
    Take sustainable development as our mission to create a green future for the industry.
