The paper chemicals market has the potential to appear in the industry or welcome the growth opportunities

Guide: Since the beginning of the 21st century, pulp and paper equipment has flourished, and new processes and new equipment have continued.

With the increasing complexity of pulp and paper equipment worldwide, the use of auxiliaries to solve the paper industry's production problems has become more common, and paper chemicals have gradually become the third important pulp and paper raw material after fiber raw materials and minerals. At present, the application of papermaking chemicals involves all aspects of the pulp and papermaking process, with a wide variety of products, a wide range of applications, a large impact of the process, and a high degree of attention.

Since the beginning of the 21st century, pulp and paper equipment has flourished, and new processes and new equipment have continued. Technological advances have not only improved and improved production efficiency and paper quality, but also placed higher demands on chemical applications. The papermaking chemicals market has broad prospects.

I. Industry Overview Fine chemicals for papermaking refer to a large class of chemical products that are finely processed according to the special needs of the paper industry and have corresponding professional supporting application technologies. A new fine chemical industry has been formed in China. Fine chemical products, also known as fine chemicals or special chemicals, are deep processing of basic chemical products, chemical products with special functions or end-use properties. Fine chemical products are widely used in various industries of the national economy.

In China, after entering the new century, the industry has divided fine chemicals into traditional fine chemicals (dyes, pigments, additives, coatings, pesticides, etc.) and new fields of fine chemicals (feed additives, food additives, industrial surfactants, medicine intermediates). Body, Leather Chemicals, Electronic Chemicals, Oil Field Chemicals, paper chemicals, Water Treatment Chemicals, adhesives, bio-chemicals, etc.). Under the continuous development of the national economy, the development and application of fine chemicals will continue to develop, and new categories will continue to increase.

2. Overview of the global paper chemicals industry With the increasing complexity of pulp and paper equipment in the world, papermaking chemicals have gradually become the third important pulp and paper raw material after fiber raw materials and minerals. At present, the production and use of global paper chemicals are mainly concentrated in three regions, namely Europe, America, Japan and emerging countries. European and American countries have always been major papermaking countries and powerful countries, and have gathered many large-scale international companies with transnational development. However, after nearly 200 years of rapid development, paper chemicals have been in a recession. The Japanese market is similar to the European and American markets. Compared with the two, emerging markets such as China, India, Brazil and Russia have good prospects. Due to the large population and economic backwardness, the per capita paper consumption is very low and the growth potential is large. Since the 21st century, the paper industry in emerging market countries has grown rapidly, and large-scale pulp and paper enterprises have been built. About 20% of the world's new paper machines have entered these regions. In the paper industry, the scale of production, process equipment, chemical applications and technical level. There are still shortcomings in other areas, but the main advantages at present are the speed of development and future prospects.

Third, the domestic paper chemicals industry overview China's paper chemicals industry started late, until the mid-1980s, with the development of society, social and economic needs, etc., the government developed the development of paper chemicals The app mentioned the agenda. At present, the domestic market is almost all foreign brands, including Germany's BASF, the United States' DOW, the Netherlands' Akzonobel, the French SNF company, the United States Nalco, Finland's Kemira and the United States Ashland Hercules. Compared with the internationally highly concentrated paper chemicals market, China's paper chemicals market is still in a relatively dispersed state. There are a large number of production enterprises and a small scale of enterprises, with a total number of 200. In recent years, with the expansion of the market and the gradual maturity of papermaking chemical process technology, the production scale of domestic enterprises has also been rapidly improved, and some leading enterprises have approached or even surpassed foreign-funded enterprises.

At present, China's paper chemical industry mainly presents two characteristics. 1. The market demand has great potential. From the perspective of demand, although the domestic papermaking chemical production has achieved rapid development in recent years, due to the late start of China's papermaking industry, the production process and technical process are relatively backward, papermaking chemicals have not been fully applied in the domestic papermaking industry. . Prospective Institute's newly released "2015-2020 China Paper Chemical Industry Market Prospects and Investment Forecast Analysis Report" survey results show that the global pulp and paper chemicals market consumption in 2008 was 33 billion US dollars, of which special chemicals The consumption scale is 16 billion US dollars, and the consumption of ordinary pulp and paper chemicals is 17 billion US dollars. China's paper chemicals consumption accounted for 7.8% of the global market value of pulp and paper chemicals, far lower than the US 23.3%, and also lower than Japan's 12.5%. In 2008, China's total paper and paperboard production accounted for 20.4% of global production. The proportion is extremely disproportionate, and the market potential of the domestic industry market is huge.

2 The market scale continues to grow rapidly. In December 2011, the [Twelfth Five-Year Plan for Paper Industry Development" was issued. The plan pointed out that during the [Twelfth Five-Year Plan" period, the country`s outdated papermaking capacity will be eliminated by more than 10 million tons. Focus on the development of low-consumption, low-pollution, high-quality, rate pulp and paper technology, including paper chemicals and application technology. In the next 5-10 years, China's entire paper industry will continue to optimize the industrial structure to improve product quality, strengthen internal management, improve after-sales service, and expand brand influence. At the same time, with the increasingly strict national environmental protection policy, the paper industry will also integrate itself internally, continuously upgrade the industry, eliminate backward production capacity, increase low-energy, pollution-free production capacity, and increase the proportion of Chinese paper products. The demand for paper chemicals is also expected to continue to grow.

According to the WIND consultation database, from 2005 to 2014, the production of mechanical paper and paperboard in China increased from 54.43 million tons to 117,785,800 tons, with an average annual growth rate of 9.05%, and the consumption increased from 54.39 million tons to 10.71 million tons. Both increased by 7.08%. In 2007, China began to increase the elimination of backward production capacity in the paper industry. Under this circumstance, the paper production volume has been significantly affected and continues to rise. As a special chemical for papermaking, papermaking chemicals are mainly determined by the downstream papermaking industry market. According to the comprehensive situation of chemicals used in pulping, papermaking, paper processing and pollution control in 2013, the industry magazine [China Paper" believes that the value of papermaking chemicals in the paper industry is about 371.59 yuan. According to this calculation, as of 2014, the market size of China's paper chemicals industry is about 43.795 billion yuan. It can be seen that in recent years, with the vigorous development of the downstream paper industry, the market scale of the paper chemical industry has continued to grow rapidly. According to the prediction of Bellin Paper Consulting, China will account for 50% of the global paper growth by 2025. On the other hand, the statistics of the 2015-2020 China Paper Chemical Industry Market Research and Investment Forecast Analysis Report released by the Prospective Industry Research Institute show that the consumption of paper chemicals in China accounted for the total output of the paper industry in 2006. It is only 0.6%. It is estimated that the ratio can be increased to 1% by 2010. Compared with the production of paper and paperboard of the order of 10 million tons, the demand for paper chemicals can reach more than 1 million tons. Therefore, according to the current application of paper chemicals in China. With the development of the proportion increase, it is expected that the average annual growth rate of paper chemicals will reach 8.80% in the next 10 years. With the improvement of paper industry technology and production process, the application of paper chemicals will become more popular and extensive, so the future paper chemicals The growth rate of the industry market will actually be much larger than the growth rate of the paper industry market.

Fourth, the future development trend of the paper chemical industry In China, there are about 200 varieties of fine chemicals for papermaking, and there are more than 400 varieties in the United States in the 1980s. Due to the wide variety of paper chemicals and high professional requirements, it not only involves the product synthesis industry, but also the application technology of the products is critical and the technology is highly intensive. However, due to the late start of China's paper industry, there is still much room for improvement in technology development level and product quality. Therefore, the development and application of paper chemicals in the future will closely follow the development of China's paper industry.

1. The demand for recycled fiber chemicals has increased significantly. For a long time, China's paper industry has taken a raw material route based on straw pulp. The straw pulp fiber is short, there are many miscellaneous cells, and the pulping pollution is serious. The industry has put forward the road of combining forest, paper and chemical, but It is still difficult to achieve wood pulp in the short term. The use of waste paper deinking pulping can not only reduce tree felling, but also protect forest resources, and waste paper deinking pulping greatly reduces environmental pollution compared with virgin fiber pulping. About 50%, while China's current national average waste paper recycling rate is about 44%, and the provinces with high utilization rates have reached more than 70%. The increase in the utilization rate of recycled fiber has placed new demands on some papermaking chemicals, such as waste paper deinking agent, pulp bleaching chemicals, emulsion rosin sizing agent, dry and wet reinforcing agent, etc. market.

2. The quality requirements of paper products are improved. At present, the quality of paper and paperboard products in China is low, the product structure is mainly in the middle and low grade, and the proportion of products is only 20%, resulting in the import of a large amount of paper and pulp from abroad every year, and the import volume is gradually increasing, so the future development of China's paper industry The focus is on improving the quality of paper, developing new paper grades, and achieving product structure adjustments, which will create new demands for paper chemicals such as neutral sizing agents, dry and wet enhancers, and other functional chemicals and coating chemicals.

3. Wastewater treatment chemicals are favored. Faced with the three major issues of energy, resources and environment in the 21st century, the state is increasingly strengthening environmental protection, and various Water Treatment chemicals required for white water treatment and reuse of papermaking wastewater will be favored.

4. The scale transformation of the paper industry. At the same time, the future development of China's papermaking industry is facing a transition from a large number of small paper mills to intensive and large-scale transformation. Domestically, a number of wholly foreign-owned or joint-venture large-scale papermaking enterprises have been gradually built and put into production. These enterprises are relatively well-funded, equipped and managed. Science and clean production have become the mainstay of the production of paper products in China. What follows is the need for paper-based chemical manufacturers to provide products and perfect on-site application services in accordance with international practices. Therefore, the development of the paper industry has put forward new and higher requirements for the product quality and after-sales application technology services of China's paper chemical industry.

5. The application range of paper chemicals has been continuously expanded. With the popularization and popularization of paper chemicals, the application of paper chemicals in the paper industry is expanding, especially for paper production and secondary fiber-related chemicals or white water closed cycle products such as waste paper. Ink, emulsion rosin sizing agents, dry (wet) enhancers, filter aids, bactericides, flocculants and other products will be a rapidly growing part.
