2017-2018 China Silicone Market Annual Report

Annual Report Overview


After experiencing structural overcapacity of many years, the small capacity in the silicone industry has been gradually eliminated. The supply and demand relation improved with the demand starting to surpass the supply. In 2017, the policy began to dominate the supply-demand relations & price trends of silicone and its upstream & downstream products. The industry reshuffle proceed further. During 2016 and 2017, the silicone market witnessed leap development which was never seen in past five years. The silicone producers gained high profits. Taking DMC as an example, the largest price rise in 2017 was high at 66.67% year on year.

The environmental protection supervision was extremely strict in 2017, and the normalization of environmental protection inspection greatly influenced the silicone and related industries. The producers shut down units or cut output frequently. Although the restriction on output also optimized the silicone supply-demand pattern to a large extent, the producers had to deal with the pressure from the environmental protection supervision. In addition, once D4, the major and basic product of the silicone industry, is recognized as one of the Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs), the overall silicone industry will confront with enormous challenges.

China, as the largest silicone producer and consumer in the world, still has prominent deep-rooted contradiction in the silicone industry development. The industrial upgrading is facing challenges. 2017–2018 China Silicone Market Annual Report provides deep analysis on the silicone industry status and the influences from national policies, based on detailed and accurate data as well as the research on upstream and downstream industries. To facilitate your future planning, the report also contains suggestions and forecasts of the future development.
