Boron carbide is a high hardness boride, commonly called artificial diamond. The development of boron carbide in China started late in 1970 compared to the US, Japan and Germany, but China's boron carbide industry has developed fast and China has been one of the largest boron carbide producers and exporters all over the world.
There are 18 boron carbide producers in China, but most of them are only able to produce low-end boron carbide due to the limitations of technology. What's the current boron carbide production situation in China? How about the future?
On the whole, the boron carbide price keeps rising from 2007. What are the influencing factors for the growth in boron carbide price? And what's the price trend of boron carbide in China?
China is a large boron carbide exporter and lots of boron carbide is exported to overseas. How is the export situation of boron carbide in China from 2006 to now?
Boron carbide can be widely used in refractory industry, ceramic industry and abrasive industry. What's the consumption situation of boron carbide in China? How about the future demand trend?
In this report, it will give the answers to the above questions and show the truth to penetrate into domestic boron carbide market. Besides, other points in domestic boron carbide industry are included:
China's boron carbide industry has developed for over 40 years. From 2008 to 2011, China's boron carbide industry has developed fast on the whole. The boron carbide capacity has seen a CAGR of XXX% during this period, reaching XXX t/a in 2011, while the output reaches XXX tonnes in 2011. It is predicted that the output of boron carbide would still increase in the coming five years in China, with an average annual growth rate of XXX %.
In 2012, there are about XXX boron carbide producers in China, and XXX is the largest one with a capacity of XXX t/a of boron carbide. Besides, over 50% of the boron carbide producers are concentrated in XXX.
There are three main production technologies of boron carbide in China, including XXX, XXX and XXX. Among them, most of China's boron carbide producers choose XXX as the main production technology.
