SinoPec Qilu and PetroChina Fushun. Although the development of plastic industry in China started in 1951. Gas Phase PE catalyst (BCG) was developed by Beijing Research Institute of Chemical Industry and SCG-1 was developed by Shanghai Research Institute of Chemical Industry. YGH041T (Pipe special produced by SinoPec Shanghai) passed the PE100 long-term behavior certification of Sweden National Test and Examination Academe according to the standard of ISO9080. 8 .210kt/a. from Soviet Union first. In 2002 bimodal HDPE equipment with the capacity of 250kt/a. SinoPec Yangzi. was built up in Shanghai with the Borstar bimodal PE technology from Borealis Group. the largest in the world. it was the first one in China to pass the certification. Shenyang Research Institute of Chemical Industry began researching ethylene polymerization in laboratory. Beijing No. In December 2004. From the 1990s to 2004 In 1998 SinoPec and PetroChina came into existence through recombination by the nation. The first set of HDPE equipment in China. and some pint-sized facilities were built in Guangzhou Plastic Plant. the introduction of HDPE production technology hadn’t begun until around 1960s in China.2 Auxiliary Agent Factory (8kt/a) and Anhui. and the total capacity of HDPE of the three ones was 500kt. 35kt HDPE. Shanghai Secco and CSPC Petrochemicals had started commercial production of PE sequently.I Historic Development of HDPE in China From the 1960s to 1990 Most HDPE manufacturers were founded during the period from the 1960s to 1990. BASF-YPC (Only produces LDPE). was introduced from France by PetroChina Liaoyang in 1974. Shanghai Chemical Plant (6kt/a). Till 2002 there had been 28 sets of PE equipment in China. In 2000. After that more and more HDPE production lines have been built up in PetroChina Daqin. In the 1960s. In 2000 the capacity of HDPE reached 1. among which 12 sets were for HDPE. Since 2005 three joint venture enterprises.

Compared to the current advanced technology nowadays. accounting for 39. SinoPec Yanzi is the top HDPE producer in China. and HDPE production is dominated by the subsidiary companies of either SinoPec or PetroChina.1 Summary of Producers There are 16 HDPE producers with the total capacity of 2.925kt/a in China in 2006. So there is no great change in the products’ structure.160kt. the technology for the imported equipment lags behind. energy-consumption. II-1 Chinese Supply . Chinese HDPE products. or the joint ventures of SinoPec or PetroChina with foreign companies. In 2006. especially the high-grade products. So most high-grade products needed in China still depend on import. only SinoPec Qilu and SinoPec Shanghai claimed that they were producing PE100 grade products such as DGDB2480H. Most domestic HDPE products are still low-grade. the products’ structure is simple and energy consumption in producing course is high. Although in the past few years. Information about SinoPec SinoPec has 5 subsidiary companies whose total capacity in 2006 is 1.7% of the total capacity and all of them are located in East China. Most of the domestic HDPE equipment in China now were imported in the 1980s and 1990s.II Supply & Demand in China The HDPE demand greatly exceeds its supply in China.

International Crude Oil Supply - Crude oil is the basic raw material for PE production.400 17.7 Some Difficulties for HDPE Production in China 1) Small Production Capacity of Single Set of HDPE Equipment The small production capacity of single set of HDPE equipment in China is the primary factor causing Chinese products are less competitive in the international market. 2001. II-1.555. China promised to open the market to all the WTO members and reduce commodities’ duty. So the international crude oil supply situation greatly influences the PE market in China. 18 .000. According to the agreement. so HDPE production is affected by crude oil indirectly. In June 2006 there are only 3 sets of equipment with the capacity of over 300kt/a in China.034.20% 2003 12.000 Total Ethylene Consumption 18. ethylene supply can not satisfy the PE production. Table II-1.000 27. It means that imported PE product will be more competitive. China entered WTO. So in the next few years.60% 2005 10. the duty of PE will be reduced a lot. It accounts for over 80% of PE production cost. Any uncertainty in oil production might affect PE production in China.90% 2004 11.447.000 Ethylene is produced through crude oil cracking in China. But China is in short of crude oil.80% 2008 6. It is hard to reduce the cost of HDPE production and develop new HDPE specifications because of the small capacity.
4) Management Lags Behind Because the ideology of planned economy is profoundly rooted in minds of most management staffs of the domestic HDPE enterprises. which is higher than that in oversea HDPE manufacturers. The smallest HDPE equipment is in Beijing Eastern. 2) Technology Lags Behind There had been 16 sets of PE equipment in China that produce HDPE up till June 2006. energy consumption accounts for a great rate of HDPE cost.The equipment with the largest capacity is in Shanghai Secco and it is for LLDPE/HDPE with a capacity of 600kt/a. The following are the equipment sets in SinoPec Maoming and PetroChina Jilin with the same capacity of 300kt/a. There are 3 sets of equipment with capacity less than 100kt/a and 6 sets of equipment with a capacity from 120kt/a to 200kt/a. 3) High Energy Consumption In China. such as buying new energy saving equipment or adopting new improved technologies. and its capacity is 10kt/a only. among which 5 sets were buit up before 1990. their efficiency of management is low. about 10%. 6 sets were built up in the 1990s and 5 sets were put into production from 2001 to 2006. At present. most domestic manufacturers are lack of capital and unwilling to invest in the improvement of the energy consumption. The production technolgy of the equipment built up before lags behind seriously and it can’t satisfy the current production. However. 19 . the capacity of most sets of PE equipment in developed countries is more than 300kt/a.
II-2 Raw Materials Supply Status Ethylene is the primary raw material for PE production in China. 1-butene and 1-hexene can also be applied to produce PE. But 1-hexene has not been produced in large scale in China yet. So only a few manufacturers, such as Shanghai Golden Phillips, use 1-hexene to produce HDPE. Although crude oil and natural gas are not direct raw materials for PE production, their supply deeply affects supply of ethylene, butene and hexane, which are produced out of crude oil. Crude oil At present, crude oil is the important raw material for all kinds of alkenes production. In 2005, China produced 180,839kt crude oil, but a large quantity of crude oil had to be imported in order to satisfy the huge demand. It is estimated that 50% of crude oil would be imported in 2010. Natural gas Natural gas also plays an important role in PE production. At present, it accounts for 2.8% of the total Chinese energy consumption. In recent years, demand of natural gas has been increasing fast. The annual growth rate of demand keeps between 11%-13% from
3 2005 to 2020. The output of natural gas was 499.5 billion m in 2005 and it will reach
2,000 m3 in 2010. II-2.1 Situation of Ethylene In China the supply of ethylene can’t satisfy the demand of ethylene, the self-sufficiency rate is low, which is about 40%, and the operating rate exceeds 100%. In 2005, about 45% of the ethylene in China, including both the domestic and imported ethylene was used to produce PE. LDPE and LLDPE consumed 70% and HDPE consumed 30% of the total 2005, 8,440kt ethylene consumption in PE production. In general, the domestic ethylene supply can’t meet the domestic demand. So every year China has to import a large quantity of ethylene, or ethylene derivatives.

Because of the rich natural gas resources. From the cracking of naphtha oil in the production of ethylene From catalytic cracking of crude oil in the refinery factories 22 . From 2003 to 2007.300kt/a by constructing two plants. and it is designed to be completed in September 2006. the ethylene capacity has been expanding fast in the Middle East. 2006 SinoPec Tianjin started construction of the ethylene cracker with the capacity of 1. The projects will be respectively finished in 2006 and 2007. SinoPec planned to build an ethylene cracker with a capacity of 1. especially Saudi Arab and Iran. the total capacity in Saudi Arab will reach 6. China once imported quite a large quantity of 1-butene from Korea. At that time. Some experts are even worried that the supply will exceed demand in the world then.Newly Involved Ethylene Projects in China PetroChina Lanzhou started to enlarge their capacity of ethylene from 240kt/a to 700kt/a in April 2005.000kt/a ethylene in SinoPec Zhenhai was approved by the State Department in March 2006 and it is planned to be put into production in 2009. On June 26th.000kt/a in Guangzhou. PetroChina started construction of the ethylene cracker with a capacity of 800kt/a in Sichuan Pengzhou on February 28th. half of ethylene of the world has been and will still be supplied by this region. Saudi Arab has been expanding their ethylene production capacity continually.000kt/a in December 2005. and it is planned to be completed in 2010. But the situation changed in the past few years. 2006. It will increase the capacity to 2. It is designed to be completed in 2010. and it is planned to be put into production in 2009. The project of 1. there are two ways to produce butene.000kt/a ethylene in PetroChina Fushun was approved by the National Development and Reform Commission in April 2006. In China. SinoPec Maoming started to enlarge their capacity of ethylene from 300kt/a to 1. It is planned to be put into production in 2010. II-2. - World Ethylene Supply The ethylene supply in the international market will exceed the demand in the near future. and it is designed to be completed in October 2006. PetroChina Jilin enlarged their capacity of ethylene from 380kt/a to 700kt/a in October 2005.000kt/a. The project of 1.000kt/a.2 Situation of Butene Originally the butene production in China was driven by the demand of the LLDPE production.
Only Shanghai Golden Phillips produced no more than 1kt/a hexane. South Africa. more and more hexane or octane will be used to replace butene in producing PE. 1-butene is replaced by 1-hexene and 1-octylene overseas since the 1990s. more and more ethylene processes produce 1-butene and MTBE together. In China. DFD 8446 and HS-7068. II-2. 1-butene is added mainly in producing of LLDPE. It is estimated that with the improvement on the LLDPE properties and the utilization of metallocene catalyst. most PE manufacturers use 1-butene to produce PE. there had not been large supplier of hexene in China. because there is no 1-hexene produced in China. 1-hexene has not been applied in large scale. However. At present. Situation of Hexene in China Till 2004. SinoPec Qilu and PetroChina Jilin which can produce DFD-8445. The quantity of butene to be used as LLDPE&HDPE co-monomer in 2005 was around 150kt. As a result. In order to improve the mechanics property of LLDPE. Most 1-hexene manufactures are in the USA. these above PE specifications have not been produced 23 . with the development of MTBE. the application of butene in LLDPE production has been decreasing. and part of butene used to produce HDPE. The key problem for the development of hexene in China is that the catalyst technology has not been completely grasped by Chinese researchers. Japan and Europe. At present almost every ethylene process yields butene.In these years. In recent years. It is reported that a 300kt/a ethylene process can yield 20kt butene. So theoretically the butene production in 2005 in China would reach 500kt/a.3 Situation of Hexene Situation of Hexene in the World LLDPE and HDPE produced by 1-hexene perform better than those using 1-butene as raw material. Because of the high price. So the production of 1-hexene is crucial to the PE related product development. Replacement of 1-butene with 1-hexene is the development trend. the average dosage in LLDPE is limited around 5% Butene is apparently in oversupply in China. 1-hexene is more welcome by manufacturers as raw material such as PetroChina Daqing.
It is planned to be built up and put into production at the end of 2006. If 30% of LLDPE use 1-hexene as raw material. by cooperating with ABB lummus. So far there have been no PE manufacturers claiming that they are producing octene copolymer. then about 72kt 1-hexene is needed. The efficiency of activator is 17-22kg/g. Chance for the Application of 1-Hexene in Large Scale It is necessary to use 1-hexene to produce LLDPE and HDPE so as to make the domestic PE products more competitive in the international market because low end PE products are in oversupply while little amount of high value-added products or high end PE products has been produced. SinoPec Tianjin. In 2006. succeeded in producing 1-hexene for LLDPE production. only Shanghai Golden Philips was reported to consume hexane to produce HDPE. Domestic Hexene Research Centers Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics It cooperates with PetroChina Daqing to produce 1-hexene. as well as 1-octene from coal will be quite reasonable and practicable. SinoPec Research Institute of Petroleum Processing developed systematic method for 1-hexene production. Among all the current Chinese PE manufacturers. To satisfy the demand of the domestic market. the production of 1-hexene. 2. It also developed the activator. China manufacturers can learn lessons from the manufacturers of South Africa Sasol as it is experienced in this field. And there is no research on the production of it in China.by them.925kt/a respectively. then 50-60kt 1-hexene is needed annually for the production of HDPE. SinoPec Yanshan started construction of 1-Hexene equipment with a capacity of 50kt/a in April 11th. The output of 1-hexene is 3kt/a. If 2% of 1-hexene is added to HDPE. SinoPec Yanshan Academy developed the activator for 1-hexene production. II-2.924kt/a. there had been no commercial production of octene in China. 2006. the capacity of LLDPE and that of HDPE is 1. 24 .4 Situation of Other Major Raw Materials Till 2005. Suggestions on Its Development As China is rich in coal. the construction of 1-hexene equipments is necessary.
II-3 Pricing of HDPE in China Price in 2005 In April 2005. The principal reasons are listed as follows: Domestic manufacturers increase the factory price. II-3.55/kg higher than that in 2003.200/t. from RMB10.500/t on May 24th. compared to RMB11.000-12.38 0.500/t at the end of 2004 because Spring is a peak period of HDPE demand and the price of international crude oil kept increasing.90 1. The reason is that international crude oil price keeps increasing.600/t. RMB11.000/t of HDPE. Table II-3.72 0. 2005. HDPE price kept increasing. Domestic price of HDPE in 2005 was about USD0.89 1.1-1 Average HDPE price in the recent 3 years (Unit: USD/kg) Import Year 2003 2004 2005 Domestic CIF 0. The demand exceeds the supply. In the second half year of 2005 the price of PE kept stable.300-13.69 0.000/t.12 Export II-3. The crude oil accounts for about 80% of production cost. In China. Price in 2006 In May 2006 the price of HDPE reached the top.1 Pricing of HDPE in the Past (for Major Specifications) In the past four years. The price of HDPE decreased by about RMB3.03 FOB 0. The price of crude oil keeps increasing.000 on April 13th to 10. 2005. the price of HDPE increased by almost RMB1. The price of HDPE increased about RMB1.200/t from May 25th to July 5th.2 Factors for the Price Changes in China Price of International Crude Oil The change of crude oil price in the international market certainly affects domestic PE price. RMB12. every year a 25 . because of planned distributing of SinoPec.95 1.62 0.
instead of stocking a lot in advance. So the annual repair or accidents of them will no wonder affect the HDPE supply.80% and 6. The great demand is the driving force of market price of HDPE. Domestic End User Demand After China entered WTO. Insufficient Supply In China the HDPE demand exceeds the supply greatly. Transport Situation HDPE price is also affected by transport. PetroChina Dushanzi and SinoPec Qilu had been overhauling their PE equipment. and that in 2007 and 2008 will be about 7. Accordingly it affects the price of HDPE in the market.large quantity of raw materials for PE production has to be imported. and the PE supply was 25% less than the demand. PetroChina Lanzhou.10%. Most end users prefer to buy when they are in need. and highway transport is needed to fetch up the rest. and above 54% of the total consumption of HDPE depends on import. about 50% of the total consumption. Import Duty of HDPE The import duty in 2006 is 9. The railage could only satisfy 1/3 of domestic transport demand. It is advantageous for oversea manufacturers to export their HDPE to China. has great influence on the price of PE in China. 26 . The price of PE increased accordingly.50% respectively. Large quantity of imported HDPE will do much impact on domestic HDPE market. since April 2004. Number of Manufacturers in China There are only 16 manufacturers with 16 sets of HDPE equipment in China. PetroChina Daqing. the market became more unpredictable. So the international price of the crude oil. while most of its downstream plastic processes are in South China. Most HDPE manufacturers are in North China. The transport cost will increase without doubt due to the rising price of petroleum products. For example. from which the raw material for PE production is produced.
Nuclear issues in North Korea and Iran will also affect the price of HDPE in China.00. it will certainly affect the price of HDPE. It is advantageous for import to reduce the cost of production. as these areas are important crude oil production regions. The exchange rate of USD and RMB has been adjusted to around 8. On the other hand it will restrain the export of domestic HDPE products. 27 . The price of HDPE will change undoubtedly.Some Uncertainty in Future Price Changes If crude oil price keeps increasing. RMB appreciation happened in China. The uncertain situation between mainland and Taiwan certainly affects the HDPE supply and price. Recently. and the supply of some products will exceed the demand.
There were above 2.64 0.0% of the total output of LLDPE.89 1. was about USD0.16/kg more than that in 2004 and USD0.374. There were 54 import origins in 2005.

II-5.4 Key Factors Influencing the Mass Consumption of HDPE in China Government Policy In China, many big cities forbid using galvanization steel pipes for water supply and encourage using plastic pipes. This has promoted the development of HDPE water supply pipes in the past few years. To optimize the energy consumption structure, the government has taken up the project of transporting gas from the West to the East. And a nation-wide gas supply network will be set up too. All the pipes should be PE100 grade pipe products. Thanks to the policy, a huge market for these products is emerging. Environment Protection Issue Nowadays the government and citizens are increasingly paying more attention to environmental protection. Film products accounted for 18.6% of HDPE consumption in 2005. It is reported that in China a large-size supermarket consumes 50 tonnes of plastic film packing bags monthly. The film is hard to decompose. Its wide application can cause serious pollution in the environment. The government might implement rules to control the usage of plastic film products as there are more and more appeals for banning using plastic packing bags.
high price will undoubtely affect the application. especially in agricultural film. infiltration film. Competition from Other Plastic Products At present. In the past three years. much slower than the average annual growth rate of 13. charge film. diseases in China greatly affect the production and consumption of HDPE in China.39% and 6. More and more kinds of HDPE packaging film will be used in people’s daily life. especially in film products. Pipe The fast demand growth of pipe brings quick consumption of HDPE. EVA and PP is another challenger for the HDPE products as they can substitute some of the applications of HDPE products. If HDPE products are much cheaper.56% respectively. The demand will increase with a double-digit growth rate. whose demand decreased at that time. In agriculture. PVC products have a quite large market share of plastic product market. Disease in China in Recent Years In recent years. The consumption decrease of HDPE was mainly in film consumption. consequently. especially in agricultural film. the growth rate of HDPE consumption was 8. That was because the diseases deeply affected the income of farmer. The consumption of 59 . most products are low value-added. Except for enlacing film. they had no much money to buy agriculture film. and preservative film and so on.5 Demand for HDPE in China & Future Growing Points/Sections Packaging Film HDPE consumption in packaging film occupies 70% of HDPE consumption in film. II-5. it is no doubt that HDPE products will take more shares of plastic product market. the outbreak of SARS and Bird Flu in China and Southeast Asia greatly reduced the consumption volume of HDPE in China.Pricing Price is an important factor for application of HDPE products. In 2003 and 2004. Another application field that be affected is hollow container products. thermal shrink film and compound film become welcome.86% in the past 5 years.
The pipes should be PE100 grade products. PetroChina has planned to construct two projects. The route would be 2. especially HDPE pipes. The application foreground of HDPE in pipe is very optimistic. drainage in cities. most HDPE products are PE63 grade products. it is important to adopt more advanced technologies to produce PE100 grade products. Double-wall corrugated pipe is largely produced for irrigation of farm and water conservancy. 60 . while it was only 42kt in 2005. The second project is the transportation of 250 billion m3/year gas from Siberia in Russia. from 302kt in 2000 to 668kt in 2005. although there are some uncertainties.HDPE in pipe and board doubled in the past 5 years. Development of Chinese economy brought a good environment to HDPE consumption here. To be more competitive. Plastic Injection and Hollow Container Plastic injection and hollow container are the two other major consumption fields of HDPE. To utilize the gas. It is taking the place of cement pipe to a certain degree. Till 2002. This will be implemented in the near future for the benefit of both countries. a nation-wide gas supply network should also be set up. The consumption of natural gas pipes will be 93kt in 2010. such as transporting route and investment. It needs lots of pipes. only SinoPec Qilu claimed that they could produce PE100 grade products in China. The growth rate of consumption was about 10% annually and this situation will maintain in the next 5-10 years.000km or even longer. At present. To unitize the gas in neighboring countries. The first is to set up crossing Korea and Japan gas transportation pipes.

Unstable Quality and High Price of Catalyst Some catalysts’ quality is unstable and their prices are too high. The products also performance better in strength and low temperature. which raises the production cost of HDPE. Moreover. Little progress has been achieved in China. Slurry method process is the major method of HDPE production. it also produced copolymer of ethylene and octane by using metallocene catalyst. most technologies are imported. Metallocene catalysts and single-site catalysts are widely applied. Developing HDPE Catalysts Catalyst is very important for HDPE production. As to domestic manufacturers. The technology is controlled by oversea corporations. catalyst is the main driving force for HDPE production.In China. Solution method is applied to producing high end products overseas. It also affects the quality of products. the distribution of molecular weight of HDPE is narrow. Only Beijing Eastern uses domestic slurry method technology to produce HDPE and UHMW-PE. little innovation was made in the past. High quality products can be produced. Its reactivity can deeply affect the production cost. The copolymer is used in improving performance of rubber-plastic materials. and only a few domestic technologies are used. Ziegler-Natta catalyst and two-function catalyst developed fast overseas. For the above merits. In recent years. it is also necessary to develop their own catalysts especially metallocene catalysts. developing solution method sounds like a good idea in China. III-3. 70 .

China started the project of transporting gas from the West to the East. During the 1980s. such as state development plan. And 72 . Driving Forces Development of Downstream Industries The larger demand and quick development of some downstream industries such as packaging film. architecture and plastic products promote the development of HDPE in China. transporting gas from the west to the east. which to a certain degree affected the market of HDPE films. the government promoted the usage of plastic irrigating pipes. parts of which turns to home market. the Commercial Department of USA decided to levy antidumping duty on HDPE plastic bag imported from China. the consumption was just over 4kt/a. In 2005. in 2004. etc. It results in oversupply of some products and increases the sales pressure of home market. the government policy is an important driving force for HDPE application. RMB Appreciation The RMB appreciation has some effects on export of downstream products of HDPE. Fast Expansion of Production Capacity It intensifies competition in the HDPE market and restrains the price rise of HDPE. In 1980. In 2000. it reached millions of tonnes. Antidumping on Downstream Products from Foreign Country For example. Government Policy In China. The profit of manufacturers drops down.IV Future Forecast IV-1 Key Factors and Driving Forces for the Development of HDPE in China Negative factors Cost Pressure from Raw Materials and Energy Sources Price rise of raw materials such as ethylene and original oil brings great pressure on HDPE industry.
