Where is China’s Pinene Industry Going?

CCM’s report of Production and Market of Alpha and Beta-Pinene in China has come out recently, indicating China’s pinene industry faces great challenges after 2010, as the supply of gum turpentine becomes more intense with increasing price.

As the main components of turpentine, alpha-pinene (α-pinene) and beta-pinene (β-pinene) are also important derivatives of turpentine; both of them are separated from turpentine.

Driven by increasing demand from domestic and overseas markets, the output of pinene keeps an uptrend in the past years. As of August 2011, the capacities of α-pinene and β-pinene amount to 122,900t/a and 54,550t/a respectively, with total output of 50,750 tonnes and 21.480 tonnes in 2010 respectively.

The price of alpha/beta-pinene fluctuated with the price change of gum turpentine in the past years. With the continuous growth of gum turpentine price, the prices of α-pinene and β-pinene have increased to the historical high level at the end of 2010. Generally speaking, the price of β-pinene is higher than that of α-pinene.

Since the price of alpha/beta-pinene is increasing, domestic pinene industry are facing great challenges. Where is China’s Pinene Industry Going? Will the price keep growing in the next few years? What are the market shares of the two kinds of pinene in 2010? What is the forecast on pinene consumption in the following 5~10 years?

You will discover all answers in CCM’s report of Production and Market of Alpha and Beta-Pinene. The report will show you detail information about pinene (α-pinene and β-pinene) industry, including production, output, capacity, price, manufacturers, consumption, forecast, etc.
