Because China's TPU film manufacturers started late, mainly for China's low-end TPU film market, while TPU film production technology and production experience threshold is high, so the current stage of China's professional TPU film production enterprises less, high industry concentration. China's TPU film manufacturers have the highest degree of specialization. The obvious feature is that there are many kinds of TPU films produced, covering a wide range of TPU films in the market.
TPU particle enterprise products mainly concentrated in adhesives, cables, high-end injection molding and other medium and high-end markets. In addition to the Taiwan and foreign companies mentioned above, there are South Korea's Jinxing Industries, Taiwan's Kunzhong and Sanso both produce TPU particles. Foreign companies, represented by BASF Bayer, occupy the high-end market of China's TPU particle industry. Chinese enterprises mainly have Yantai Wanhua, Zhejiang Huafeng and Shanghai United. The overall industry concentration of TPU particles is high.
TPU industry competition pattern is mainly composed of three parts: Taiwan, Foreign, Chinese mainland. From a geographical point of view, China's TPU industry major production enterprises and foreign enterprises compared as follows:
in the Chinese market, TPU industry in the high-end market is mainly occupied by Taiwan and Europe and the United States enterprises. Taiwan and foreign TPU enterprises have more than 30 years of development history, experience, so in China's TPU industry market position is very important. Because Taiwan and foreign enterprises are more mature technology, product performance is stable, so, Taiwan and foreign enterprises mainly occupy the middle and high-end market.
foreign enterprises are mostly diversified product manufacturers, products involved in the polyurethane industry chain in many links. BASF provides TPU upstream raw materials such as MDI, polyols and other basic chemical materials, but also produces TPU particles, and on the basis of TPU particles to produce TPU film products. For example, Bayer Materials Technology's TPU films are mainly Dueflex products produced by its North American materials company, and Bayer Materials also produces other polyurethane products. Huntsman's TPU film products focus on TPU glass sheets, and Huntsman also offers basic chemical products such as MDI. Luberon produces a wide range of TPU particles and TPU film products. Therefore, foreign enterprises have more kinds of products, TPU film is one of a variety of material products, product structure is strong.
TPU film manufacturers in Taiwan' product structure for TPU film and other plastic products constitute the company's main products. Taiwan's enterprise products are mainly concentrated in pneumatic tubes, footwear, adhesives and other markets. In addition to producing TPU films, Taiwan Dingji Chemical also produces TPU seals, pneumatic tubes, conveyor belts and other related TPU products. Taiwan's Gaoding Chemical produces TPU particles and extends the TPU particle production line to TPU films.
