|出版日||ページ情報||英文 65 Pages
In 2012, the production capacity of China's coal tar industry was 22 million tons, and the output was 18 million tons, in which 6.8 million tons was used in producing carbon black. In 2013, influenced by downstream market, the operating rate was rising and China's coal tar output has reached 20 million tons.
While limited by raw materials, the coal tar producing areas mainly located in Northern China and Eastern China and each has taken up 41.53% and 27.57%. These two regions' high temperature coal tar producing capacity is approaching to 69.1% of the whole country's production capacity. Due to the industrial expansion in Central China, the region's production capacity has been released, and the proportion of total coal tar producing capacity has reached 11.83%.
In 2013, the coal tar market has experienced several vibrations in China. The peak price of coal tar appeared in the late March with the average price of CNY 2842.86 per ton. The bottom price appeared in November with the average price of CNY 2580.00 per ton. In the beginning of 2013, the average Ex-factory price was CNY 2697.71 per ton, and till the end of the year, the average price fluctuated to CNY 2720.00 per ton, increasing 0.90% as a whole.
At present, the consumption market of China's coal tar industry mainly has three parts; one is used in deep processing to produce crude naphthalene, wash oil, anthracene oil and tar pitch; the second is used in making crude coal tar as a substituted fuel of the heavy oil, or used in thermal energy industry like glass-making and porcelain-making, as well as used as the raw material of producing Carbon Black; the third is used to export. Besides, there is another product needs to mention, high temperature coal tar hydrogenation, with the gradual maturity of this technology, the consumption of high temperature coal tar hydrogenation is increasing.
