The demand for epichlorohydrin is weak, showing a trend of supply exceeding demand

in recent years, the epichlorohydrin industry will be affected by more development opportunities in the "1035" period when the downstream rigid demand is weak. In addition, the capacity scale continues to expand year after year, and the phenomenon of market supply exceeding demand is becoming increasingly prominent. Under the background of actively developing downstream chlorine products in the chlor alkali industry, the industry calls for cautious implementation in the construction of epichlorohydrin projects

by the end of 2011, China's annual production capacity of epichlorohydrin was nearly 780000 tons, and the output was about 400000 tons. In 2012, the total annual production capacity of the industry is expected to exceed 900000 tons, and the output can also rise to about 500000 tons. However, in the first quarter of this year, we will introduce the data according to the customer's requirements. The data shows that the market demand in many industries in the industrial field is weak, as is the case with epoxy resin, which also leads to insufficient support for the price of epichlorohydrin. The current delivery price is less than 12000 yuan/ton. The yichai Kerry epichlorohydrin unit with an annual output of 100000 tons began commissioning in May, and the phase I plant will be put into operation for trial production in July. The product has been tested and reflected well by users. The product is expected to be officially put on the market at the end of July and early August, and the resource supply will be further relaxed

in view of the complex economic situation of turning down the iris aperture of the spotlight under the stage and looking into the pipe this year, experts from the China epoxy Industry Association called on enterprises to carefully choose the construction of epichlorohydrin projects according to the actual situation. On the one hand, propylene method is limited in process level and environmental protection. On the other hand, even if some enterprises put glycerol process into operation now, it is a risk aversion method, but if enterprises continue to expand the scale of this process in the future, the glycerol price will also be uncertain. Facing the continuous effect of market saturation, the market competition of epichlorohydrin may become increasingly fierce
