Research Report on Chinese Basic Chemical Raw Material Industry, 2008-2009

WWW.SHCRI.COM - Chinese basic chemical raw material industry is composed of the manufacturing of inorganic acid, inorganic soda, inorganic salt, organic chemical raw materials and other basic chemical raw materials. In 2008, Chinese basic chemical raw material industry was in depression due to the financial crisis.

 

In 2009H1, Chinese basic chemical raw material manufacturing industry began to recover slightly. The production YOY decrease rate dropped and the benefit decline was relieved. However, there was still unoptimistic production and sales. From January to May 2009, the sales revenue of Chinese basic chemical raw material manufacturing industry came up to RMB 312.945 billion with a YOY decrease of 13.31%. The growth rate dropped by 46.79% YOY.

 

In 2009H1, Chinese sulphuric acid production reached 27.2880 million tons with a YOY growth of 5.10%. The growth rate rose by 2.52% YOY. Chinese concentrated nitric acid production totaled 1.0090 million tons, falling by 0.40% YOY. The growth rate was declined by 4.95% YOY. Chinese hydrochloric acid production reached 3.8346 million tons with a YOY growth of 0.91%. The growth rate is decreased by 4.64% YOY. Chinese caustic soda production was 9.1480 million tons, reducing by 4.90% YOY. The growth rate fell by 17.65% YOY. Chinese ethylene production reached 4.8040 million tons, dropping by 6.80% YOY. The growth rate is declined by 8.89% YOY.

 

By 2009Q2, the ex-factory price index of Chinese chemical raw material and chemical product manufacturing industry continued to fall. In June 2009, the ex-factory price index dropped by 33.86 compared with the highest point in August 2008.

 

In 2009H1, the profitability of Chinese basic chemical raw material manufacturing industry saw an obvious decrease. From January to May 2009, the total profit was RMB 7.264 billion, reducing by RMB 11.112 billion YOY.

 

On June 5th, 2009, Standardization Administration of China, National Development and Reform Commission and Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of China issued Suggestions on Implementing Adjustment and Revitalization Plan of Ten Major Industries and Strengthening Standardization Work. It explicitly indicates that the technical support role of the standardization should be fully displayed in the adjustment and revitalization of ten major industries including the petrochemical industry. Accordingly, China Petroleum and Chemical Industry Association declared to improve and complete the chemical industrial standard system and enhance its discourse right through joining the international standard formulation.
