During the 2011 Investor Day on Dec. 12-13, 2011, DuPont indicates that the Asia-Pacific economy and the favorable industrial bases there will boost the demand for performance chemicals in 2012 and beyond. The long-term sales of performance chemicals, including TiO2 and fluoropolymers, are expected to grow 6-8% compounded annually. The increasing demand for TiO2 and fluoropolymers is complemented by ongoing capacity expansion through brown-field and productivity projects.  ...

Apart from DuPont, other multinationals also eye on China's fluoropolymer market, especially Japanese companies. In September 2011, Daikin Industries, Ltd. (Daikin), a famous Japan-based fluorochemical manufacturer, announced that it will establish a new production facility for the manufacture of ZEFFLE fluoropolymer coatings at Changshu Factory of its subsidiary Daikin Fluorochemicals (China) Co.
