Refers to the natural and synthetic rubber, rubber products for the raw materials to produce a variety of activities, including the use of rubber reproduction of rubber products.
China rubber industry:
In recent years, China's non-tire rubber products industry's rapid development, greatly boosting the market for acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber, hydrogenated nitrile rubber, chloroprene rubber, EPDM rubber, synthetic rubber demand. However, due to capacity constraints, China's production of EPDM rubber, nitrile rubber, chloroprene rubber, both in the production or performance, can not meet the market requirements, annual import volume is still large.
In 2007 China imported 1.412 million tons of synthetic rubber, an increase of 8.4% over the previous year; the average price reached $ 2,011 / ton, up 10.2 percent over the previous year, and average import prices were record high. Synthetic rubber in 2010 China will import 1.9 million tons. Huge market has attracted the world's synthetic rubber production predators, they have increased the intensity of the Chinese market. At the recent International Rubber Exhibition in China in 2008 during the LANXESS (Lanxess) Technical Rubber Products business, Asia Pacific Marketing Manager Sun algae in an interview, said: "Although we have not set up production bases in China, but we enter the absolute interest in the Chinese market, China's rapid development of rubber industry, for the LANXESS Technical Rubber Products business provides a great space for growth and profitability. "
Market: attracted international predators
In recent years, Chinese production of non-tire rubber products increased significantly year by year, the amount of plastic consumption is also growing. According to the China Rubber Industry Association estimates that in 2007, Chinese production of non-tire rubber products are: belt 170 million square meters, over the previous year 10.7%; V with 990 million A meters, up 8.1% over the previous year; Hose 5.5 million standard meters, up 7.5% over the previous year; 1.8 billion pairs of shoes, up 13.1 percent over the previous year.
To hose the tape industry, for example, as China's second largest rubber industry, and its non-tire rubber products account for a large proportion. According to the China Rubber Industry Association, with a branch pipe is estimated that in 2007 the total consumption of plastic pipe with industry volume of 17.3 million tons. The next few years, the market demand for rubber tube with a still increasing year by year. In terms of annual growth of 7% is expected in 2008 China produced 182 million square meters conveyor belt, V belt A production of 1.285 billion meters, hose production of 560 million standard meters. In 2010, China produced 210 million square meters conveyor belt, V belt production of 1.5 billion A-meter, hose production of 640 million standard meters. Driven by the automobile industry, China's automotive-specific V-belts and special hose will be greatly increased. According to the three tubes with a product yield forecast estimates that in 2008 consumption of rubber hose tape volume will be 185,000 tons, of which consumes about 100,000 tons of synthetic rubber; rubber consumption in 2010 will reach 212,000 tons, of which consumption of synthetic rubber 112,000 tons.
