Post Time:May 23,2008Classify:Industry NewsView:631

Calcined soda, namely sodium carbonate, is an important basic chemical raw materials and also a basic raw materials for such industries as building materials, metallurgy, and chemical. In the recent years, the rapid expansion of sodium carbonate downstream sectors has made China in short supply of sodium carbonate. Since July, 2007, China has had a rise of nearly 30% in its export price of sodium carbonate, however its annual export volume has had a negative growth trend.

In the next few years, China’s sodium carbonate demand will rise, boosted by a rapid growth of production capacity of some downstream sectors, including glass, inorganic chemicals and household detergents. Based on the output growth of main downstream sectors, we estimate the growth of China’s demand for sodium carbonate in 2008 and 2009.

Booming demand for sodium carbonate has stimulated many manufactures to expand their production capacity. Based on the production expansion projects of China key sodium carbonate producers and the schedule to bring the projects into production, this report estimates the capacity expansion of sodium carbonate and also predicts output of sodium carbonate in 2008-2009.

Based on the authoritative statistics from the National Bureau of Statistic and the General Administration of Customs and the information carried on CHEM.CN, backed by China National Chemical Information Center, this report makes an in-depth analysis on the current situation and a forecast of the development trend of China sodium carbonate industry. Meanwhile, this report also provides you with the information on business operation and development trend of China nine key sodium carbonate manufacturers.
