In the Chinese market, polyether monomers mainly include polyethylene glycol
monomethyl ether (MPEG), allyl polyoxyethylene ether (APEG) and methyl alkenyl
polyoxyethylene ether (TPEG). In the wake of enhanced R & D capabilities and technological
progress, polyether monomers have been widely used in the construction industry, daily
chemical, pharmaceutical manufacturing and other fields, in which the construction
industry (mainly polycarboxylate water reducing agents) consumes the most polyether
monomers. In 2012, Chinese polycarboxylate water reducing agents need 360,000-420,000 tons
of polyether monomers.

Liaoning Oxiranchem, Kelong Fine Chemical, Zhejiang Huangma and Shanghai Taijie act as
major suppliers of polyether monomers, occupying 60-70% market share in China
polycarboxylate water reducing agent industry. Wherein, attracted by high gross margin,
the latter three enterprises have longitudinally extended into the polycarboxylate water
reducing agent market.

In 2007-2012, China’s output of polycarboxylate water reducing agents grew at a CAGR
of 40.9%. In 2012, the output and sales volume of polycarboxylate water reducing agents
amounted to approximately 2.3 million tons, accounting for 38% of the total consumption of
water reducing agents which tended to become leading products in the water reducing agent

As of the end of 2012, there had been over 1,000 polycarboxylate water reducing agent
production enterprises in China, but most of them were small-sized complex formulation
enterprises, only 10 ones mastered systematic and mature polycarboxylate water reducing
agent concentrate and pumping agent synthesis technology.

In 2012, the combined capacity of polycarboxylate water reducing agents of top 10
enterprises totaled 2.197 million tons, and their combined sales volume hit 881,000 tons,
equivalent to 38.3% of the total sales volume. Jiangsu Subote, Kelong Fine Chemical and
Xiamen Academy of Building Research Group ranked top three, with the respective sales
volume of 175,000 tons, 135,000 tons and 110,000 tons in 2012.
