By Business Wire News   


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Polyether Monomer Industry in China – 2015” report to their offering.

In 2014 the capacity of polyether monomers used for water reducing agent in China exceeded 1300 thousand tons. Currently there are over 30 domestic manufacturers, among which, 9 players achieved a capacity over 40 thousand tons/a.

Clariant built up an ethoxylation plant in Daya Bay of Guangdong Province in the early 2011 with a capacity of 50 thousand tons/a and expanded up to 100 thousand tons/a in 2014. Oxiranchem announced a project of 120 thousand tons/a epoxy derivatives new materials in 2013, which contains a polyether monomers plant with a capacity of 60 thousand tons/a. The ethoxylation plant of Levima has went into operation in the fourth quarter of 2014, and the company planned to add another 60 thousand tons/a capacity for producing of polyether monomers.

Along with the rapid development of polycarboxylate water reducing agent, the consumption of polyether monomers used for polycarboxylate water reducing agent experienced a relatively fast growth from 2006-2014 with a CAGR of 56.3%.

Viewing from the top 30 import enterprises of polyether monomers in China, the average import prices of multinational enterprises such as BASF, DOW, Eigenpost and Bayer are higher than domestic enterprises, volumes are more as well.

As green water reducing agent, polycarboxylate water reducing agent accounts for more and more share in the using of concrete. The domestic capacity will further increase from 2015 to 2016 and the competition will be more challenging. But for some certain high-end products, China will remain reliant on import in a short term.
