China is a big country of polyolefin production and consumption, the total production and apparent consumption of polyolefin in China in 2017 was about 36Mt and 50Mt, with the self-sufficiency rate of 72 %. In the next few years, with construction of projects including large-scale refining & chemical integration (RCI), coal/methanol to olefins (CTO/MTO), propane dehydrogenation (PDH), ethane cracking, etc., China’s polyolefin industry will keep rapid development and form a competition pattern of feedstock diversification.
However, the high-end polyolefin products in China are massive dependence on imports. <Petroleum & Chemical Industry “13th FYP” Development Guide> predicted that, by 2020, high-end polyolefin demand in China would be 11.15Mt, with production and self-sufficiency rate of 7.74Mt and 70%, respectively, showing huge market growth space. <Implementation Scheme for Industrialization of New Material Key Technologies> proposed that the development of high-end polyolefin materials such as high carbon α-olefins, metallocene polyethylene (mPE), polyolefin elastomers (POE) of ethylene and α-olefin α-olefin, and ethylene-vinyl alcohol copolymer (EVOH resin), etc., should be given priority.
With China’s economic development and consumption transformation & upgrading, high-end polyolefin will not only have huge market developing space in packing, automobile, construction, and consumer electronics and so on, but also promote the upgrading of technologies, processes, catalysts, as well as product applications.
The 3rd High-End Polyolefin Technologies & Market Conference 2018 will be organized by ASIACHEM on May 23-24 in Fuzhou. The upcoming conference will discuss China’s high-end polyolefin industrial policy & market outlook; high-end polyolefin project planning with feedstock diversification; development & application of metallocene polyolefin; high carbon α-olefin new technologies & industrial application; polyolefin elastomer (POE) market & new commercial technologies; development & application of high-end & differentiated polyolefin grades; high-end polyolefin catalysts & polymerization processes; market potential of high-end polyolefin in emerging downstream fields.
