Achieving a new breakthrough in the epoxy resin industry

2023-06-08 00:00

On June 7, the 2023 China Epoxy Resin Industry Development (Huangshan) Conference continued. The participating experts pointed out that the way out for my country's epoxy resin industry in the future is to go out and realize internationalization, but first of all, it is necessary to practice basic skills. For enterprises, the next step is to refine the research and development of some new products and open up new application areas. For example, building repairs require qualified modified polymers, which is a huge market. 2023 is an important stage for the high-quality development and transformation and upgrading of the epoxy resin industry. The current complex and changeable international environment has brought multiple challenges to the sustainable development of the epoxy resin industry.
Xia Yingbiao, honorary chairman of the Anhui Chemical Industry Association, pointed out that my country's epoxy resin industry has developed rapidly in recent years and has achieved world-renowned achievements (such as Liaoning Oak Chemical Co., Ltd., Jiangsu Yizheng, Shandong Wanhua Chemical and other enterprises are particularly prominent), In particular, the growth rate of production capacity is too fast, from 3 million tons per year three years ago to more than 10 million tons per year at present. Therefore, the epoxy resin industry is facing "triple pressure", that is, the pressure of "shrinking demand, supply shock, and weakening expectations".
There are many epoxy resin industry manufacturers in my country, and the current production capacity is obviously overcapacitated. In addition, both ethylene oxide and propylene oxide are facing fierce market competition, and there is an urgent need to develop downstream, develop new markets, new application fields, achieve differentiation, and increase the demand for epoxy resin products.
At present, there is also a bottleneck in the development of the downstream epoxy resin industry. For example, 90% of water reducing agent monomers are used in the construction field, but after several years of development, most of the infrastructure in developed areas is in a saturated state, and the demand for water reducing agents will drop significantly. In addition, my country's epoxy resin industry has a complete range of polycarboxylate superplasticizers with 1 C, 3 C, 4 C, 5 C, and 6 C macromonomers. However, the previous 1 CMP technology is widely used in the world, and the demand for domestic products is limited. limit. Therefore, water reducers should be developed in the direction of functionalization and serialization, such as nuclear power, hydropower, Sichuan-Tibet railway, and functional products needed in the cold regions of Northeast China.
Under the current low-carbon economy, how to strengthen the development of special epoxy resins and functional epoxy resins, open up new markets, upgrade and upgrade, and form upstream and downstream integrated supporting facilities to improve the industrial layout are important issues that need to be solved urgently.
Hang Longcheng, an expert of the Epoxy Resin and Application Committee of the Petrochemical Federation, said that my country's epoxy resin industry has experienced the fastest development in history in the past ten years and a golden development period with good benefits, but it has the fastest growth in demand and the most extensive market development. In the era of severe overcapacity and a sharp decline in industrial efficiency, the era has suddenly entered a transitional period, which has left most people outside the industry at a loss, and also made most people in the industry feel at a loss. Only then will there be opportunities for the future to shine. How to grasp the development direction of the industry? How to do a good job in the adjustment of enterprise structure is a life-and-death event that all epoxy industries and related enterprises must seriously deal with. my country's epoxy resin industry has always been in line with the status quo of the manufacturing industry. The current industry is large-scale but not refined, and the industrial chain is relatively complete, but the key industries are seriously broken. The irrational industrial structure is the key problem of overcapacity. At the end of the "Thirteenth Five-Year Plan", the total production capacity of epoxy resin in my country is 2.6 million tons per year, with an output of 1.95 million tons, and the industry's average operating rate is 78%. In 2022, the production capacity will reach 3.6 million tons per year, and the output will exceed 2.2 million tons. Domestic consumption reached 2.3 million tons; of which coatings accounted for 35% of electronics, electrical appliances accounted for 32%, composite materials accounted for 13.5%, and construction adhesives accounted for 19.5%. At present, my country's epoxy resin production capacity accounts for 61% of the world, and its output accounts for 54% of the world; its application volume accounts for 63% of the world, which can be said to be the global leader in the industry; but from the perspective of industrial structure and products (including auxiliary products), It can only be said to be at the middle level, especially the basic materials of curing agents, and epoxy secondary processing skills, production capacity and innovation capabilities, and will remain at the middle and lower levels for a long time. Hang Longcheng pointed out that the epoxy resin industry should "eliminate excess and adjust structure". According to the development trend of our country, it should not focus on reducing production capacity; instead, it should mainly adjust structure and develop secondary processing and standardization of functional epoxy The core of standardized production and application is market development.
Xiao Bing, an expert and senior economist of the Marketing Institute of Sinopec Economic Research Institute, made a report on "Prospects for the Development Trend of Phenol and Ketone Industry under the High Expansion Cycle". Xiao Bing pointed out that the current investment in the petrochemical industry is concentrated on the resource side and the consumption side. The center of gravity of the chemical consumption market continues to shift to Northeast Asia. In the case of strong supply and weak demand, the global phenol operating rate will be lower than 82% before 2030. From 2022 to 2024, the world's new phenol production capacity will be nearly 1.7 million tons per year. In terms of acetone, as the expansion speed slows down after 2024, the operating rate will gradually increase, but the global operating rate will be lower than 81% before 2030. At present, my country is still the main sales place of phenol and acetone in the world, and the domestic phenol and ketone industry is still at the peak of capacity expansion. The trend of industrial chain integration and large-scale development is obvious. The domestic market also shows that the country is retreating and the people are advancing, and private enterprises have become the main force in the market.
