Over the past few years, the global PX production capacity gradually to the consumer focused PX industry transfer, Asia has become the fastest-growing region, followed by the middle east. Due to the resource and market are not dominant in North America and Western Europe, growth ability is very limited, in South America and the Middle East and Europe are also basically no development. By 2012, the global PX production capacity reached 38480000 tons, consumption of 34100000 tons, Chinese respectively accounted for 23% and 41% of the world.
In recent years, with the Chinese purified terephthalic acid (PTA) a substantial increase in production capacity, PX gap increases, so the production and construction Chinese neighboring countries on the PX input great enthusiasm.
Japan as one of the world’s first production of PX country, before 2010, basically completed the construction and layout of production capacity, but due to the lack of downstream labor-intensive industries, more than 80% of its PX products for export, especially Chinese, accounting for its exports more than 60%.
South Korea PX industry is growing up during the refining industry and PTA industry, from production in 1990 only 260000 tons to the current 5250000 tons, the downstream demand is stable at around 4000000 tons, exports accounted for about 40% and yield, the future of Korea continues to expand its PX capacity.
Singapore is an island, attaches great importance to environmental protection and safety. In 1992 the state of the first PX device, capacity expansion to 850000 tons by 2000, after 12 years there has been no significant change capacity.
For our country, because the PX is a large oil refinery project supporting projects, the raw materials, logistics requirements are high, so is mainly distributed in the large petrochemical enterprises along the coast, its production capacity accounted for 74.3% of the total capacity. For related industries gathered around the Bohai and East China, market demand, these regions are also PX project more development areas. In recent years, due to the rapid development of downstream, the rapid expansion of domestic supply gap. In 2012 China’s PX capacity of 8830000 tons, output of 7750000 tons, up to 87.9% starts, but because of the downstream demand is growing faster, the gap further expand, net imports of 6100000 tons, the annual consumption of PX reached 13850000 tons, up 22.3% over the previous year.
PX domestic self-sufficiency rate with the rapid growth in imports and the rapid decline, from 88% in 2000 to about 56% today. According to the plan, proposed in 2015 is expected to China, PTA production capacity of more than 44000000 tons, then PX demand will reach 22000000 tons. If the PX device is not the proposed schedule construction at present, 2015 PX imports will be more than 12000000 tons, became the largest volume of imports of petrochemical products.
