The petrochemical industry is a basic industry and is very important to the national economy. In 2016, there were 29,624 oil and chemical companies above designated size (with annual sales revenue of over CNY 20 million). The total operational revenue was CNY 13.29 trillion, increasing by 1.7% YOY. Total profits were CNY 644.44 billion, increasing by 2.5% YOY.
Since 2012, the profits of oil and natural gas exploitation industry have been declining year by year, but the profits of petroleum processing and chemical industries have been rising. This shows that profits are moving downstream.
In terms of operational revenues, among the three major sectors, oil and gas exploitation decreased the most, by 17.3%. Petroleum processing slightly decreased, by 2.0%. Chemicals increased by 5.3%, among which specialty chemicals and synthetic materials both increased by 7.6%, followed by the increase of basic chemical material manufacturing at 6.7%. The fertilizer industry was down by 4.5% and the rubber industry was up by only 2.6%.
In terms of production volume, crude oil was down by 6.9% and this was the first decrease after 2010. The increases in the production volume of gasoline and kerosene were 6.4% and 8.9% while diesel oil decreased by 1.3%. Inorganic chemical material was up by only 2.2% while organic chemical material and synthetic material were up by 5.7% and 8.0%, respectively.
In 2016, the total production volume of major chemical products was 569 million tons, increasing by 2.0% YOY. The total production volume of chemical fertilizer was 70.049 million tons, down by 4.8%; caustic soda was 32.839 million tons, up by 8.0%; ethylene was 17.811 million tons, up by 3.9%; synthetic materials was 142 million tons, up by 8.0%. The production volume of tire cover was 947 million, up by 8.6%.
In 2016, China exported USD 44.35 billion worth of rubber products, accounting for 26.0% of the total export value of oil and chemical industry and down by 8.1% YOY. The export volume of chemical fertilizer was 27.864 million tons (physical) and export value was USD 6.63 billion, down by 21.5% and 39.5%, respectively. Decreased export of petrochemical products was mainly due to two reasons, the first of which is growing protectionism. In 2016, China underwent 119 trade remedy cases in 27 countries and regions involving USD 14.34 billion. The number of cases and value of goods involved increased by 36.8% and 76% respectively and was focused on chemical products. Secondly, China's market was affected by imported chemical products from Middle East and South Korea because new facilities in those countries were more quickly put into production.
