2018-2019 China PC Market Annual Report

Annual Report Overview


In 2018, China's economy has shifted from a high-speed growth stage to a high-quality development stage, featuring steady GDP growth, further increase in the contribution rate of domestic demand, and the emergence of new kinetic energy. Meanwhile, facing the challenge in growth pace, the global economy has to deal with risk factors such as the prevalence of trade protectionism, inflationary pressure and currency contraction. The PC market is facing changing and complex external environment.

In 2018, rapid expansion of capacity, relatively slow growth in demand, and complex external operating environment Resulted in continuous declines in China’s PC prices. In recent years, China's PC market is experiencing a capacity expansion. In 2018, the units at Wanhua Chemical, Lihuayi Weiyuan Chemical and LUXI Chemical were put into operation successively. This led to China's production capacity exceeding 1 million tons, and the capacity expansion growth was over 50%, which became the focus of this industry. Moreover, the units at Pingmei Shenma Group and Hainan Huasheng New Material are planned to put into operation. Influenced by the increasing supply in PC industry, the overcapacity warning was triggered for the first time.

From the demand side, the global economy still faces challenges. The traditional manufacturing industry production base has migrated. The domestic electronics and auto industry has slowed growth rate. The increase in emerging demand industries is limited. Besides, many downstream industry products were affected by China-US trade conflict. All these factors contribute to deep contradiction between supply and demand and the difficulty of demand recovery. The demand has not increased till the end of the third quarter, accompanying market falling back to the same level in 2017 with an expected decline of 20%-30%. From the national macroeconomic and industrial policies, the complete ban on imports of foreign garbage and the large fluctuations in the RMB exchange rate have led to a significant increase in import costs. Under the localization of PC, the market supply pattern is gradually changing.

How will PC market supply grow in 2019? What changes will the size of the import market and export countries have? Under the China-US trade war, what opportunities and challenges will the domestic downstream industries face? Under the expansion of domestic demand, what is the further step of various domestic industries?
