Research on China Synthetic Rubber Industry, 2012-2017

Published: November 2012
No. of Pages: 75

China’s synthetic rubber industry’s output and apparent consumption volume increased rapidly. The output increased to 3.488 million tons (including latex) in 2011 from 1.047 million tons in 2001, increased by more than twice, and the compound growth rate during this period reached 12.8%; apparent consumption volume increased to 4.656 million tons of 2011 from 1.684 million tons of 2001 (including latex), and the compound growth rate was 10.7%. China’s synthetic rubber’s output and apparent consumption also keeps long-term rapid growth, the growth speed of output was relatively fast, and the import volume showed the downward trend. Before 2008, China’s synthetic rubber self-sufficiency rate maintained at about 60%. While since 2008, the self-sufficiency rate increased to some extent due to the release of large amount of new production capacity, and this rate reached 74.9% in 2011. There is still a large proportion in China’s synthetic rubber consumption relies on imports, so China’s synthetic rubber industry still has growth space in the future.

As for the current production capacity equipments in China’s synthetic rubber industry, the production capacity growth speed of upstream butadiene, styrene, isoprene and other raw materials will not keep up with the growth speed of synthetic rubber industry. As far as the current situation, the main raw materials’ supply proportion is about 1:1.6, so the short supply situation will be difficult to improve in the “Twelfth Five-Year” period. The conditions of other raw material markets (such as styrene and isoprene) are similar with the condition in butadiene market. The short supply of raw materials will increase the risks of production cost rising and capacity idle.
