Global and China Epoxy Resin Industry Chain Report, 2011-2012


Epoxy resin is a polymeric compound containing two or more epoxy groups and mainly finds application in coatings, electrical systems and electronics, and composite materials which together consume around 80% of the global epoxy resin.

In 2011, the global epoxy resin output approximated 2.24 million tons (80%-95% of which were Bisphenol A Epoxy Resin) and was mainly distributed in Asia, Western Europe and the United States where their output totally made up over 90% of the global total. Among these origins, China is the world's largest producer and delivers about 37.1% of the global total output. As the European and American markets grow saturated, the increase of epoxy resin production is principally contributed by Asian countries especially China. In 2005-2011, the CAGR of epoxy resin output in China hit 10.8%, while that in Euro-American regions was only 3% or so.

Chinese epoxy resin manufacturers started late and few of them possess absolute scale advantages, featuring lower industry concentration degree than Euro-American nations. In 2011, the top 10 epoxy resin producers in Mainland China accounted for 60% of the national total capacity, while the capacity of the world's top 6 epoxy resin manufacturers made up 61.8% of the global total. In this year, the top 3 epoxy resin manufacturers by capacity in Mainland China included Nan Ya Epoxy Resin (Kunshan) Co., Ltd., Sanmu Group and Kingboard Chemical Holdings Ltd.

Nan Ya Epoxy Resin (Kunshan) Co., Ltd. is the epoxy resin production base of Taiwan-based Nan Ya Plastics Corporation. As the Phase-II boasting annual capacity of 186.3 kt epoxy resins was put into production, the company's epoxy resin capacity amounted to 316 kt/a in 2011, occupying 17.6% of the total capacity in Chinese Mainland, and Nan Ya Plastic Corporation thus becomes the world's largest producer of epoxy resin and enjoys capacity of 480 kt/a. Sanmu Group ranked No. 5 in the world in 2011 by virtue of 200 kt/a epoxy resin and now has a 70 kt/a epoxy resin project under construction which will be put into operation in 2012.

Most epoxy resins are produced from a reaction between epichlorohydrin and bisphenol-A which boasted output of 450,000 tons and 400,000 tons respectively in Mainland China in 2011, with self-sufficiency rates of 99.1% and 41.0% separately.

The epichlorohydrin market in Chinese Mainland is dominated by domestic manufacturers. In 2011, the top 3 companies by capacity were Shandong Haili Chemical Industry Co., Ltd., Shandong Wudi Xinyue Chemical Co., Ltd. and Tianjin Botian Chemical Co., Ltd., of which Shandong Haili Chemical Industry maintained No. 1 in Asia and No. 2 in the world for its epichlorohydrin capacity.

The market demand for bisphenol A is largely dependent on imports. In 2011, the top 3 bisphenol A manufacturers by capacity in Mainland China included Bayer (Shanghai) Polymer Co., Ltd., Sinopec Mitsubishi Chemical Polycarbonate (Beijing) Co., Ltd. and Shanghai Sinopec Mitsui Chemicals Co., Ltd.
