Beijing, China, 2011/05/03 - ResearchInChina, the vertical portal for Chinese business intelligence, announces the release of a new report –Global and China Dissolving Pulp Industry Report, 2010-2012.
Dissolving pulp is a pulp that has cellulose content over 95%, and its main downstream product – viscose staple fiber is an important textile material.
In 2010, there were 17 major dissolving pulp producers operating 21 factories in the world. Top five dissolving pulp producers included Sappi, Birla, Sateri, Rayonier and Lenzing, which mainly produced dissolving wood pulp with a total capacity of 2.475 million tons, a 61.9% share of the global dissolving pulp capacity.
In early 2011, as the demand for dissolving pulp is increasing and the price is soaring, some dissolving pulp producers plan to expand their capacity, and have shown a preference for China in their deployment of new capacity in view of the high textile industry concentration in China and the stringent environmental policies in other countries.
By the end of 2012, China’s dissolving pulp capacity will increase by 529% over 2010 to 1.636 million tons, while the capacity of other regions will rise only 19.5% over 2010 to 4.47 million tons. By then, China’s share of global dissolving pulp capacity will increase from 6.5% in 2010 to 26.8%.
In China, Sun Paper and Yueyang Paper with complete pulping equipment and rich production experience, Jilin Chemical Fiber with a unique bamboo fiber industry chain, and Fujian Nanping Paper with bamboo and wood resource advantages will take the lead to build and expand dissolving pulp production lines on a large scale at the end of 2012. In addition, other producers like Qingshan Paper and Chenming Paper will also step up capacity expansion for a place in the Chinese market.
This Report not only sheds light on the development, market supply and demand as well as enterprise competition in the dissolving pulp industry in China and worldwide, but also analyzes the capacity, operation and development prospect of major dissolving pulp enterprises.
