the global demand for bisphenol a continued to grow at a high speed

September 2, 2002

the global demand for bisphenol A (BPA) in 2000 was 3.2 million tons. Among them, 63% is used for polycarbonate (PC), 30% is used for

epoxy resin, and 7% is used for special resin. It is estimated that the demand for BPA will increase by 7% ~ 8% annually by 2005.

due to the strong demand for high impact plastics used in automobile and consumer markets, especially optical discs, the long-term

annual demand growth rate of PC is expected to be 8% ~ 10%. However, due to the particularly weak demand in the PC market this year, the demand has decreased by 10%, leading to the current oversupply in the BPA market, and the price has also decreased since the beginning of 2001, especially in the Asia Pacific region where the demand has dropped sharply. The manufacturer hopes that the demand for PC and BPA will return to normal in late 2002. Epoxy resin is the second largest end product application field of BPA, and its demand will increase by 3% ~ 4%. Epoxy resin is used for adhesives, soft

packaging, laminates and electronic component sealants

at present, BPA manufacturers are building new devices in the Asia Pacific region to meet the production demand of PC new devices that will be put into production in the region in the next few years. Mitsubishi Chemical Company plans to build a BPA plant with an annual output of 100000 tons in Kurosaki, Japan, and expand the annual output of its plant from 100000 tons to 170000 tons in Kagoshima, Japan. The test results can be output in Excel format. Both of them will produce 15000 tons of lithium carbonate from 20 salt lakes. After the first quarter of 2002, the Chinese market has great growth potential. The BPA output of these plants will supply the company's PC business in Japan and South Korea. Mitsubishi Chemical Company is also considering building a BPA plant with an annual output of 100000 tons in

Thailand to facilitate data analysis and migration. At the end of 2001, Mitsui Chemical Co., Ltd. expanded the production of a BPA plant with an annual output of 70000 tons in Singapore. By October2002, the production capacity of the plant will be increased by 70000 tons

Nanya Plastics Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Taiwan, China Formosa Plastics Co., Ltd., built a BPA plant with an annual output of 100000 tons in Mailiao, Taiwan, China at the end of 2001. Bayer plans to put into operation a 160000 T/a BPA plant in mataput, Thailand in 2002. China Bluestar chemical company plans to build a BPA plant with an annual output of 25000 tons in Wuxi, Jiangsu Province in 2005. GE Plastics

recently built a BPA plant with an annual output of 75000 tons in Alabama
