PAP Para-aminophenol Market Continues to Grow in the Future

As the main raw material of paracetamol, para-aminophenol (PAP) industry shows great potential, even in the financial crisis of 2008. Chinese PAP producers were encouraged by the huge demand. Hence they had expanded their capacity since 2008. The PAP industry in China grew with a capacity CAGR of 12.70% and an output CAGR of 13.78% from 2003 to 2010. 

Export has been playing an important role in China’s PAP industry, which is mainly exported to Asian countries. The export amount of PAP has been increasing dramatically in the recent years, reaching over 22,088 tonnes in 2010. And the export proportion accounting for 19% of China's PAP output in 2010 is the same as that in 2007, which indicates the export volume is growing with increasing output.

Apart from export, PAP is mainly consumed by paracetamol industry in China. Different from other overseas countries such as those in America and Europe, China's PAP is not widely used in rubber antioxidant but in dyestuff industry and pharmaceutical industry. And most consumption in pharmaceuticals is attributed to parecetamol industry, accounting for 66% of China's total output in 2010.

It is estimated by CCM that the PAP market will continue to grow in the future. The development of paracetamol industry is still the key driver for the growth of PAP output in China.
