Will PF Capacity Continue to Fall in the Next Few Years?

As one of the largest PF producers and consumers in the world, China’s PF capacity reaches 444,000t/a as of April 2012, with 14.1% lower than that of 2011; the consumption of PF reaches 156,670 tonnes in China in 2011. After dramatic growth from 2006 to 2008 and thanks to domestic flourishing glyphosate production, the growth rate of PF production has slowed down. And China's PF industry is recovering difficultly in the past few years.

As of April 2012, there are mainly 26 PF producers in China. After rapid expansion in 2007 and 2008, some producers have been washed out facing intense competition. What is the performance of these major producers in PF production in 2012? Will the PF capacity continue to fall in the next few years? And whether some new projects or capacity expansion are planned at present?

China is a net importer of PF, and quite a lot of PF is imported each year. However, with the technological improvement and production expansion, the import volume of PF keeps decreasing in recent years, while Chinese-made PF export sees a rapid increase. What are the changes in China's import and export of PF in recent years, and how about the detailed import and export situation of PF in 2011 and Q1 2012?

Chinese PF industry is greatly influenced by the development of its downstream industries, especially glyphosate. Affected by global financial crisis, the demand for Chinese glyphosate has kept declining since 2009. Further more, along with the changing situation including raw material supply, environmental requirements, etc., AEA pathway glyphosate production is facing increasingly intense competition from other two routes. Meanwhile, China's PF industry has seen serious overcapacity in recent years. How these factors will influence the development of Chinese PF industry in the future?
