China will become the world's inorganic pigment manufacturing center and net exporter

June 6, 2006

driven and affected by the development of coatings, inks, plastics and other industries, China has become an important consumer market of inorganic pigments in the world and a must for major pigment manufacturers, as well as an important contributor to the low-grade and primary products of inorganic pigments in the world. China's pigment industry should strive to comply with this development trend and improve its position in the international market as soon as possible. This is the consensus reached by more than 100 representatives from inorganic pigments such as iron oxide, titanium dioxide, lithopone, chromium pigments, zinc oxide and some organic pigments and coatings manufacturers at the just concluded 2006 pigment industry working conference

this meeting is hosted by China Paint Industry Association. In the two days, the representatives listened carefully to the keynote speeches made by relevant experts on the economic operation and development trend of China's major inorganic pigment industries, the main methods and measures to deal with EU trade barriers, the reserves and configuration of major mineral resources, the comparison and gap between the current standards of pigment products and international standards, and held the annual meetings of the sub committees respectively

the meeting revealed that G é rald durski, director of engineering plastics in the global business department of high performance polyamide of lithopone, iron oxide and chrome Solvay, said that the domestic consumption of pigments and titanium dioxide accounted for 50%, 300h, 29% and 16% of the world's total consumption respectively, and their contribution rates to the world consumer market were 100%, 38%, 32% and 13% respectively. Nevertheless, China is not the main recipient of profits generated by inorganic pigments in the world. The fundamental reason is that the level of production technology is not high, and it is difficult to produce high-grade and high-quality products

Qu Ying, senior engineer of China Petroleum and Chemical Industry Planning Institute, introduced the import and export objects and changes of titanium dioxide when analyzing the import and export trade characteristics of inorganic pigments in China. According to her introduction, titanium dioxide imported into China mainly comes from Taiwan, Australia, Japan and the United States. In 2005, titanium dioxide imported from these regions and countries accounted for% of China's total imports of titanium dioxide. 75%; The export target is mainly the United States, which accounted for 30% of the total export volume in 2005, and others are relatively scattered, accounting for less than 7%. The customs areas of titanium dioxide import are mainly Shanghai Customs and Huangpu Customs, and the exports are mainly Shanghai Customs, Qingdao Customs and Huangpu Customs

according to the meeting, the import and export of titanium dioxide reversed in 2005. In 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2005, the import volume increased by 22.7%, 21.6%, 9.7% and 9.2% respectively, and the export volume increased by 23.0%, 15.6%, 19.2% and 67% respectively,. Most of the titanium dioxide imported from abroad is processed as semi-finished products. To this end, industry insiders unanimously called for improving the application performance of titanium dioxide through scientific and technological innovation, so as to improve the export price of titanium dioxide

in 2005, driven by the strong growth of building materials, coatings, magnetic materials, ceramics and other industries, the total production of iron oxide increased significantly, reaching 622700 tons (including 238200 tons of domestic sales and 329500 tons of exports), an increase of 14.3% year-on-year. Due to the gap in variety, grade, price and service, a large number of imports have to be made up, resulting in an increase in the import of iron oxide products in the past two years. Its main trading objects come from Hong Kong, Taiwan, the United States, Japan, South Korea and other regions and countries. In 2005 alone, iron oxide imported from these five places accounted for 84% of the total import volume. The export target is mainly the United States. In 2005, the export to the United States accounted for 35% of the total export volume, followed by Hong Kong, accounting for 14%. Like titanium dioxide, the export of iron oxide industry is also the leading role of primary products

when analyzing the changes in the main body of inorganic pigment trade, relevant experts pointed out that with the continuous entry of foreign capital and the continuous expansion of the scale of domestic enterprises, there are more and more enterprises with self-supporting import and export rights, and the main body of inorganic pigment export is basically large-scale production enterprises or their affiliated trading companies. For example, in 2005, there were 22 exporters with an export volume of more than 2000 tons of titanium dioxide, accounting for 70% of the total export volume of the country,; Lide China's export growth of extruder products will show steady progress. There are 16 exporters with flour export volume of more than 500 tons, accounting for '80% of the total export volume. In addition, 97% of China's inorganic pigment exports adopt the general trade mode. In addition to the general trade, the import processing trade and incoming processing and assembly trade also account for a large proportion. The start-up analysis of the testing machine is heavy, indicating that the production and processing of foreign inorganic pigments are gradually transferring to China. It can be predicted that China will become the manufacturing center and net exporter of inorganic pigments in the world
