Analysis on Future of Yellow Phosphorus Market in China

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "The Future of Yellow Phosphorus in China" report to their offering.

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 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.

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 didnt 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. Whats 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?

In this report, you can find the answers to all the above questions.

Besides, this report also tries to find answers to the following questions:

  • What is the resource supply situation in China for yellow phosphorus industry?
  • How is the production situation of Chinese yellow phosphors? The production part covers capacity & output, manufacturers situation, price, existing problems, cutting edge technologies, comparison of production cost, competitive strategy, etc.
  • How is yellow phosphorus consumed and what changes have taken place to the consumption in recent years?
  • What are the development trends about capacity, output, manufacturers, resource supply, consumption situation in 2010-2019, based on large number of first-hand information and advanced forecast method?
  • What is IE analysis of Chinese yellow phosphorus in 2009?
  • What is SWOT analysis of top 5 manufacturers of Chinese yellow phosphorus industry in Sep. 2010?

With this report, you will gain a complete and in-depth impression of Chinese yellow phosphorus industry in its past, present and future.
