Melamine industry hot topics in 2013-2014:
- Overcapacity is becoming the biggest problem of melamine industry and capacity utilization is generally low. In recent years, the domestic production of melamine gained a rapid expansion. Especially the capacity expansion of melamine was nearly doubled from 2008 to 2014. Due to technological process and other reasons, China's melamine industry capacity utilization is generally only about 50%. With the rapid expansion in recent years, melamine's capacity utilization continues to be lower.
- In December 2014, United States Department of Commerce issued an announcement that they would initiate anti-dumping and anti-subsidy investigations on the imported melamine originated in China during 2013. If it is identified as dumping, then the dumping preliminary arbitration of United States Department of Commerce will be put out around 21 April, 2015.
China's melamine industry had witnessed booming development before 2008. However, after global financial crisis broke out at the end of 2008, its development has slowed down from 2008 to 2009. Thanks to China's stimulus policies and slow recovery of global economy, it has recovered in 2010-2014. As the largest exporter and important consumer of melamine around the world, China will enjoy promising prospect in the long run.
China's melamine industry has changed a lot in the past decade, both in production and consumption. Thanks to technological improvement and more strictly regulations from Chinese government in melamine production, China's melamine production is becoming more and more concentrated and powerful, along with the launch of more large scale melamine installations.
China is playing more and more important role in global melamine market, with melamine export volume increasing. What are the changes in melamine export and import in China from 2010 to 2014, and what is the impact from global financial crisis on it?
As to consumption, though the end use segments of melamine are still concentrated in laminate industry, coatings, papermaking, textile and leather, molded plastics, water-reducing admixture, flame retardants in China, its consumption structure has changed a little. What has happened in the past four years?
In a word, the competition in China's melamine industry will be more intense and complex in the future. Therefore, it is necessary to show the truth to penetrate into China's melamine market. In this intelligence report, it will disclose these changes in China's melamine industry from 2010 to 2014 and figure out its feature of future prospect.
