Global and China MLCC Electronic Ceramics Industry Report, 2013-2015
As the world's most important manufacturing base of consumer electronics, China sees booming demand for MLCC and other passive elements, which spurs demand for MLCC electronic ceramic materials. Since 2011, China has been the world's largest MLCC producer, but also the largest demander of MLCC electronic ceramics. In 2013, China needed 31,500 tons of MLCC electronic ceramics, representing a year-on-year increase of 12.1%.
Meanwhile, the global MLCC electronic ceramics capacity is mostly dominated by Japanese enterprises because of high technical barriers to the industry, while in China, only a handful of companies are capable of producing MLCC materials in large scale. As of 2013, China’s MLCC electronic ceramics capacity had been around 8,700 tons, lagging behind the demand. As new MLCC electronic ceramics projects go into production for the next two years, the supply shortage will be eased.
Judging from the competition pattern, Shandong Sinocera Functional Material Co., Ltd, Guangdong Fenghua Advanced Technology (Holding) Co., Ltd. and Xiantao Zhongxing Electronic Materials Co., Ltd. are a minority of companies that can implement mass production of MLCC electronic ceramics in China. As a MLCC manufacturer, Fenghua Advanced Technology utilizes the vast majority of its self-produced MLCC materials for its own need, even needing outsourcing. With the successive commissioning of Zhongxing Electronic’s 10,000 t/a project and Sinocera’s 1,500 t/a project, the two companies will hold the first two positions relying on their respective capacity of 13,000 t/a and 5,000 t/a in 2015.
