Global and China Electronic Chemicals Industry Report, 2014-2017
Electronic chemicals refer to a variety of chemicals and materials used in electronic components, printed circuit boards, consumer electronics and other industrial products. This report focuses on analyzing photoresist & its special chemicals and capacitor chemicals as well as maleic anhydride derivatives used in printed circuit boards, flat panel displays and semiconductors.
Photoresist is mainly used for fine graphics processing in PCB, LCD, semiconductor and other areas. In 2013, the global photoresist market scale reached approximately RMB40 billion, mainly held by Japanese, American, South Korean and Taiwanese enterprises. Take PCB photoresist market for example: in 2013, the combined market share of Asahi Kasei, Hitachi Chemical and Taiwan Eternal Chemical in the PCB dry film photoresist market was more than 80%; Taiyo Ink enjoyed a share of more than 50% in the PCB solder mask ink market.
China photoresist market is growing rapidly. In 2013, the share of China PCB photoresist market size in the global total rose to 64.3%; while the share of China LCD and semiconductor photoresist market scale was less than one-third of the world’s total, and the development space is still large. China photoresist market is almost occupied by foreign companies; market share of Chinese counterparts was less than 10%, mainly including photoresist special chemical manufacturer Changzhou Tronly New Electronic Materials Co., Ltd., semiconductor g-line/i-line photoresist producer Beijing Kempur Microelectronics.Inc.
2 Capacitor chemicals
Capacitor chemicals are one of key raw materials to produce aluminum electrolytic capacitors, solid polymer capacitors and supercapacitors. In 2013, the global capacitor chemicals market size approximated RMB7 billion, with products mainly produced by Japanese, European, American and Chinese manufacturers, such as Sanyo Chemical Industries, Honeywell, and Shenzhen Capchem Technology.
China aluminum electrolytic capacitor chemicals industry is fairly mature, with its market scale making up about 50% of the global total in 2013, and chiefly dominated by Shenzhen Capchem Technology and foreign-funded enterprises.
3 Maleic Anhydride Derivatives
Maleic anhydride derivatives are mainly used for the packaging of electronic components. In 2013, global demand for maleic anhydride derivatives reached approximately 250 kt, the varieties that have larger demand are Methyl tetrahydrophthalic anhydride and tetrahydrophthalic anhydride, main producers of which include Italian Polynt, New Japan Chemical, Hitachi Chemical and so on.
China maleic anhydride derivatives industry can basically achieve self-sufficiency, the demand of which accounted for about half of the world's demand in 2013. The main producers consist of Puyang Huicheng Electronic Material Co., Ltd, Jiaxing Orient Chemical Factory, and Jiaxing Qingyang Chemical Co., Ltd.
