2022-2023 China PC Market Annual Report

Annual Report Overview


2022 witnessed a volatile global economy. Although high crude oil prices pushed up the basic feedstock prices of petrochemicals, the cost transmission varied in the industry. In 2022, both PC and BPA capacity increased, but the capacity growth rate of BPA was expected to surpass that of PC. With newly added BPA units going into operation, the BPA prices dropped notably, improving the gross profit of PC notably. Taking the middle-end PC as an example, its gross profit rose by 1,024.2% Y-O-Y in H1, 2022. However, the PC price decline in Q2 heavily dampened market confidence. Thus, it is urgent for market confidence to restore in H2, 2022, but market players should pay attention to the contradiction between the diversification of supply and limited demand potential in the PC market.

In the future, the newly added capacity along the phenol & acetone-BPA-PC industry chain will be concentrated in the upstream industry, and the integration will further accelerate, which will bring substantial changes to the supply-demand pattern. Against the backdrop of capacity growth, China’s PC industry still faces structural supply imbalance and price competition of low-end resources. However, PC enterprises have gradually attached importance to diversification and differentiation of production, and the trend of lowering the high supply of general-purpose materials has emerged. With growing capacity and output, the supply-demand relationship will remain as the key price driver, and the consumption growth will continue to be influenced by the implementation of related policies. SCI’s PC Market Annual Report analyzes the changes in the industry and predicts the industry trend via detailed and comprehensive data analysis.

The core competitiveness of SCI’s PC Market Annual Report lies in the comprehensive inspection of production, consumption and global trade flow of the industry chain, and the compilation focuses on the characteristics of “big data”, “supply and demand development trends”, and "value chain delivery".
