China Ethylene Oxide Industry Report, 2012-2020

December 2, 2013

DUBLIN, December 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

Research and Markets (
http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/wlrjws/china_ethylene) has announced the
addition of the “China Ethylene Oxide Industry Report, 2012-2020″

As a key organic chemical raw material only next to polyethylene and PVC among the
derivatives of ethylene industry, ethylene oxide
[http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/wlrjws/china_ethylene ] (EO) is widely applied
in the manufacturing of ethylene glycol, nonionic surfactant, polycarboxylate water
reducer, crystalline silicon cutting fluid, ethanol amine, etc.

In 2012, the EO capacity around the globe was mainly distributed at Asia-Pacific,
North America and Middle East, with proportion exceeding 80%. China is one of the major
producing areas of EO, and the EO capacity totaled 5 million tons approximately as of
August 2013, sharing 17% or so of world’s total capacity. The capacity distribution is
characterized by obvious regional features, with around 60% capacity distributed in
Eastern China, which is consistent with the distribution of ethylene (main raw material).

Along with the growth of EO capacity in China, the output also witnesses continuous
improvement, and climbed up to 3.7 million tons or so in 2012. According to the
proposed/ongoing projects, the newly added capacity of EO in China will reach 3.5-4
million tons during 2013-2015. The growing capacity will make the EO industry encounter
the risk of overcapacity in short term, and it is predicted that the integral operating
rate of the industry will decline to less than 80%.

The consumption fields of EO in China mainly involve ethylene glycol, nonionic
surfactant, ethanol amine, etc., with consumption proportion in 2012 accumulating to 90%
or so. In future several years, due to the rapid growth of coal-based ethylene glycol
capacity, the growth in the demand of ethylene glycol for EO will slow down, while the
demand of fine chemical fields as ethanol amine and polyethylene glycol for EO will
witness rapid growth.
