ERJ staff report (DS)
Menlo Park, California -- SRI Consulting (SRIC) has released its 2008 China Report: Chemical Product Trends, providing what it claims is, "the most trusted market information, supply/demand, trends, and historical data on the China chemical industry."
SRIC said the report is now over 2100 pages long, covering 146 chemical profiles and major industry overviews. New additions to the reports this year include profiles for EP Elastomers, Isobutene Rubber, Dimethyl Ether, 1-4-Butanediol, Polyacrylamides, Specialty Chemical Overview, Inorganic Chemical Industry Overview and Fertilizer Industry Overview.
The researchers say, "China's production capacity for chemicals continues to increase in almost every area, yet demand is outgrowing production capacity, leaving China to continue to import. For the last ten years, commodity chemicals such as petrochemicals and polymers have been the growth drivers. Strong growth in this area is expected to continue for at least the next five to ten years with new growth in the next generation of specialty chemicals. "
