Acrylic Market Supply And Demand
- Jun 12, 2018 -

The use of acrylic fiber in China is about 650,000 tons per year, and the total annual production in China is only about 400,000 tons. From the surface, supply falls short of demand. The sales situation of acrylic fibers should be very good, but in reality it is not. The domestic acrylic fiber market is rather weak. The reason is mainly due to the large amount of acrylic fiber imported annually in recent years. In recent years, the average import volume is 400,000 tons/year, and the production volume plus the import volume is about 800,000 tons. Even if the market reaches its maximum consumption, there will be a backlog of nearly 150,000 tons of products each year.

At present, there are 13 domestic acrylic fiber production enterprises with a total designed production capacity of 487,000 tons. In 1998, the actual production of acrylic fiber was 389,000 tons, and the gap between output and production capacity was relatively large. This was mainly due to the excessive impact of imported products, which caused the lack of operating rate of some domestic enterprises. During the “Ninth Five-Year Plan” period, domestic companies including Daqing, Anqing, Fushun and many other acrylic companies will increase their capacity and capacity, and their production capacity and actual output will increase. It is expected that by the year 2000, the production capacity of China's acrylic fibers will reach 550,000 tons. The output can reach 450,000 tons. In spite of this, domestic production of acrylic fiber still cannot meet the demand of the post-processing industry. In recent years, the domestic consumption of acrylic fiber still has a gap of about 200,000 tons. In the short term, it still needs to rely on imports to meet the needs of post-processing companies.
