Annual Report Overview

2017–2018 China IIR Market Annual Report


China’s IIR market witnessed the unprecedentedly intense competition in 2017. Shandong Chambroad Petrochemicals and Formosa Synthetic Rubber (Ningbo) Corporation had ramped up production, which resulted in a competition of five major producers in the IIR market. Market prices of IIR showed a long-awaited surge in 2017. IIR prices rose strongly in Q1, 2017, reaching a 3-year high. The leap in IIR prices also uplifted the profit considerably. However, there was no significant increase in end demand. Besides, the demand weakened as some downstream plants were affected by the environmental protection inspection. The demand was still weak and the market supply continued to be ample. Market prices of IIR started to fluctuate downwards after Q1, 2017.

What will the future market be like? Regular tires develop towards the tubeless tires, and shared bicycles sprang up, whittling down the demand for regular butyl rubber. As the quality of Chinese-made IIR cannot meet the requirements from downstream companies, China’s dependence on imported IIR was still high. The import dependence degree of regular IIR and HIIR was 50% and 70% respectively. How will the supply-demand fundamental change in the coming period? How will the Chinese IIR producers deal with the market competition? How will downstream companies choose the suitable resources?

Based on the original data from Sublime China Information Co., Ltd. (abbr. as SCI) and synthesized the authoritative data from National Bureau of Statics, General Administration of Customs and industry statistics, 2017–2018 China IIR Market Annual Report analyzes both the 2017 regular IIR and the HIIR markets in detail from supply side, demand side, import, export, upstream raw material, etc. The reliable historical data could be traced back to five years ago, which can be used as import reference information for the project investments of butyl rubber, the market forecast, new client development, etc.


Report value
