China Coal Tar Industry Report, 2016-2020 – Coal Tar Output in China Approximated 17.7 Million Tons in 2015 – Research and Markets

By Business Wire News   


Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “China Coal Tar Industry Report, 2016-2020” report to their offering.

In 2015, China’s coal tar production converged in North China and East China, which contributed an aggregate of 57% of the total nationwide. By province, Shanxi, Hebei and Shandong ranked among the top three in terms of coal tar output. Among them, Shanxi constituted China’s largest coal and coke producing area, whose coal tar output occupied 17.9%.

In China, coal tar is mainly consumed in deep-processed products (including phenol, anthracene, industrial naphthalene, coal tar pitch, etc.) and carbon black, with 2015’s consumption in the two markets accounting for 76% and 22%, respectively.

In 2015, China’s coal tar processing capacity totaled 25.5 million tons, and there were a large number of coal tar deep-processing enterprises that went into fierce competition. To promote sound development of the industry and by degrees eliminate backward capacity, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) issued the Access Conditions of Coking Industry, which stipulates that anhydrous coal tar processing capacity of single facility shall be no less than 150 kt/a. It is expected that in the upcoming years China’s coal tar processing capacity will slow down, and that capacity concentration will improve.
