New Report on Chinese Yellow Phosphorus Market

Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue: The Future of Yellow Phosphorus in China.

Yellow phosphorus, the second largest consumer of phosphorus ore, an irreplaceable and non-renewable resource and closely related to people's life, constitutes about 15% of phosphorus ore consumption in China.

China owns the largest capacity and output of yellow phosphorus in the world. However, Overcapacity has emerged as an eminent problem in Chinese yellow phosphorus industry in recent years. For example China's capacity in 2008 is about double the size of the global demand, which is only about 800,000-900,000 tonnes every year. That suggests a very low operating rate of China's yellow phosphorus industry about one third of its capacity during 2003-2008. What are reasons for the low operating rate, or why Chinese yellow phosphorus producers expand their capacity to such a large scale?

In China, like several years ago, most yellow phosphorus was consumed by thermal phosphoric acid and phosphorus trichloride in 2008. However, the consumption structure of yellow phosphorus is changing every year. The yellow phosphorus consumption by thermal Yellow phosphorus, the second largest consumption area of phosphorus ore, constitutes about 15% of phosphorus ore consumption in China. And phosphorus ore is an irreplaceable and non-renewable resource and closely related to people's life,

China owns the largest capacity and output of yellow phosphorus in the world. However, overcapacity has emerged as an obvious problem in Chinese yellow phosphorus industry in recent years. For example China's capacity in 2009 is about double the size of the domestic demand. What's more, China has begun to restrict export of yellow phosphorus, which aggravates the overcapacity situation. That suggests a very low operating rate of China's yellow phosphorus industry of about 40%~ 50% in recent years. What are reasons for the low operating rate, or why Chinese yellow phosphorus producers expand their capacity to such a large scale?

After few years' structural readjustment and elimination in yellow phosphorus industry, China's yellow phosphorus production and phosphorous chemical industry chain is much more reasonable now. How did Chinese make these achievements? What are the details of China's yellow phosphorus industry development? What are the situation of energy consumption, waste emission and utilization situations in Chinese yellow phosphorus production?

Chinese government had implemented policies to restrict export and exploitation of phosphorus ore, export and production of yellow phosphorus since 2005. Currently in 2010, the last year for China's 11th National Economic and Social Development (2006-2010), the development of phosphorus production has witnessed the major turning point of the industry. What is the trend of electricity price for yellow phosphorus production? What is the current production cost of yellow phosphorus and how is the production cost consisted of?

China used to export large volume of yellow phosphorus until 2008, but currently the export is limited since 2008 by increasing the tariff to 120% as highest. Though the tariff has been reduced in 2009, but the export didn't recovery, what is the trend of China's yellow phosphorus export?

In the past of China, most yellow phosphorus was consumed by thermal phosphoric acid and phosphorus trichloride. However, the consumption structure of yellow phosphorus is changing every year. The yellow phosphorus consumption by thermal phosphoric acid has been shrinking by consumption share in recent years, while the share of yellow phosphorus in phosphorus trichloride has been increasing. What other changes have taken place to Chinese yellow phosphorus consumption and what have driven such changes to happen? How do the limitation of phosphorus detergent and development of wet-process phosphoric acid impact consumption of yellow phosphorus?

The price of Chinese yellow phosphorus, closely related to supply/demand dynamics, changing with global economic environment, seasons, national policy etc., has experienced great fluctuations in 2008, with the highest reaching USD3,504/t and the lowest dropping to USD1,606/t. What are the price changes of yellow phosphorus in 2009 and 2010?

It is estimated that it will take 30 years to exploit the remaining yellow phosphorus in China, so China is adjusting industrial structure of yellow phosphorus for saving phosphorus resource. What's the influence on resource supply, manufacturers, capacity and output of Chinese yellow phosphorus caused by adjusting industrial structure? What is the trend of resource tax levied on phosphorus ore?
