In recent years, the synthetic rubber
[http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/z9w7nw/china_synthetic ] capacity of China has
seen rapid growth. As of late 2012, China’s capacity and output of synthetic rubber hit
3.904 million tons and 3.85 million tons (estimated), with producers numbering 23.
Benefiting from self-contained raw material equipment, Sinopec Group and China National
Petroleum Corporation are leading synthetic rubber producers in China, with the combined
capacity accounting for 59.5% of the country’s total.

Due to robust domestic demand as well as favorable policies, private, foreign and
Taiwanese enterprises are seizing Chinese synthetic rubber market. For example, in January
2012, the 100,000 t/a BR and 100,000 t/a SBR equipment built by Shandong Huamao Flamestop
New-Material have both been put into service; in May 2012, the 30,000 t/a NBR equipment
jointly invested by TSRC and Germany-based LANXESS in Chinese mainland was put into
production, increasing the total production capability of synthetic rubber (including BR,
SBR, NBR and SBS) of TSRC (with joint ventures included) to 302,000 t/a in Chinese

In addition, other projects including the 50,000 t/a nickel-based BR equipment of
Shandong Junteng Synthetic Rubber, 100,000 t/a BR project of Zhejiang Transfer Synthetic
Materials, and 100,000 t/a SSBR of Liaoning North Dynasol Synthetic Rubber are all
expected to be put into production before 2015. The estimation shows that the new
synthetic rubber capacity of China is projected to hit 2.239 million t/a by late 2015.

At present, BR and SBR are the synthetic rubber with the highest output in China,
accounting for 19.5% and 33.0% of China’s total synthetic rubber output in 2011
respectively. However, NBR, IIR, EPR and other special rubber are heavily reliant on
imports due to severe shortage of output as a result of restrictions in technologies and
raw materials.
