2017-2018 China Sodium Carbonate Market Annual Report

Annual Report Overview


In 2017, the calcined soda market prices fluctuated at high levels. The new calcined soda capacity was sparse around the world. As the demand for calcined soda increased and the volume of new capacity was limited, the globally supply-demand balance was tight in 2017. Considering the domestic situation in China, the calcined soda supply inched up. As the real estate market in third- and fourth-tier cities was extremely active, from January to June, the apparent consumption of calcined soda increased 8.4% than previous period. The environmental protection was the most important uncertain factor that might affect the market.

In 2017, China introduced a series of real estate control measures. In 2018, the domestic real estate market may face adjustments. Can the support for the glass market be maintained in 2018? Jiangsu Debang Chemical Industry quitted the market at the end of 2017, easing the pressure of producers in East China. He’nan Jinshan became the biggest producer with combined-soda process in China after expanding capacity. However, the fertilizer industry was still in a slump, weighing on situation of producers with combined-soda process. Several small-scale plants may quit the market in the future, and the capacity will concentrate in big plants. The environmental protection policies are unlikely to be loosened in 2018. The domestic calcined soda capacity increased slowly, and the by-product market kept weak. The domestic calcined soda market is predicted to trend sideways at high levels in 2018.

SCI has majored in the calcined soda industry for 11 years. China’s calcined soda market moved from a short-balanced situation to the structurally oversupplied one, and it became short-balanced again during the 13th 5-Year Plan period. SCI focuses not only the supply and demand now, but also the whole industry chain, the macro environment and the industrial policies.

Report Value:

(1) Clearly show the production status and development trend based on nearly 5-years’ capacity and output changes at China’s producers.

(2) Present the background of this round of price rally through the environmental protection policy and the industrial policy analysis. 

(3) Analyze the export by destination in detail to present a clear export pattern.

(4) Comprehensively analyze the downstream and upstream markets to provide a more holistic view of the whole industry chain.

(5) Analyze the factors that drive the prices changes from multi-angles, and objectively evaluate the calcined soda value chain.
