Paraformaldehyde is a white crystalline solid formed by polymerization of formaldehyde. It is used to make various resins with mainly phenol (melamine resin; phenol resin; vinylon; polyacetal resin; terephthalic acid; diphenyl methane diisocyanate, acrylic acid esters). Paraformaldehyde is also mainly used in (1) Pesticides: synthesis of acetochlor, butachlor, and glyphosate; (2) Medicine and pharmaceutics: produce vitamin A; (3) Coatings: synthesis of high grade automobile paint.
Scope of the Report:
This report focuses on the Paraformaldehyde in global market, especially in North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific, South America, Middle East and Africa. This report categorizes the market based on manufacturers, regions, type and application.
At present, in the foreign industrial developed countries the paraformaldehyde industry is generally at a more advanced level, the world’s large enterprises are mainly concentrated in the Spain, United States and China. Meanwhile, foreign companies have more mature equipment, strong R & D capability, the technical level is in a leading position. But foreign companies’ manufacturing cost is relatively high, compared with china’s companies, the manufacturing cost is competitive disadvantage. As the China’s paraformaldehyde manufacturers production technology continues to improve, their share in the international market is increasing, competitiveness in the international market gradually increase.
China paraformaldehyde industry has developed into a national industry with certain research and production capacity, industry product mix has gradually improved, currently China has become international paraformaldehyde large consumption country, but the production technology is relatively laggard, the manufacturers can only produce some low-end product, although after 2010 the new production lines is increasing, the technology is still relying on import.
The paraformaldehyde is mainly used in pesticide, medicine, coating, synthetic resin and most used in the production of pesticide synthesis of glyphosate herbicide. We forecast that it will increase in the next few year.
The upstream material-Formaldehyde also face the oversupply situation in china, meantime the decreasing demand of downstream application, paraformaldehyde industry will keep in the capacity saturated situation, with the gross margin, paraformaldehyde industry will keep a low growth and price decreased trend.
In summary, paraformaldehyde industry is not suitable for the new entrants to compete in it. The old manufacturers also need to closely concern the changes in this industry.
The worldwide market for Paraformaldehyde is expected to grow at a CAGR of roughly 5.5% over the next five years, will reach 580 million US$ in 2023, from 420 million US$ in 2017, according to a new GIR (Global Info Research) study.
