The Future for China's Aluminium Fluoride Industry
|発行||Metal Bulletin Research||商品コード||238424|
To what extent is fluorspar really the dominant price driver?
What happened in the last few years that caused the Chinese to falter?
What strategies should you develop for the near future?
The Chinese aluminium fluoride industry took the aluminium fluoride (ALF3) world by storm at the start of this century, forcing traditional suppliers in Europe, USA and elsewhere to completely re-arrange their business strategies.
Since then however, the Chinese have failed take advantage of the leverage they built up over those years by undercutting competition. Metal Bulletin Research examines why, and looks at whether the Chinese will eventually cement their domination in this timely and on the ground research, The Future for China's Aluminium Fluoride Industry.
The comprehensive study provides detailed analysis on how China's aluminium fluoride industry is structured and offers a detailed economic overview. An insight into the impact China has on the global industry is also included.
In recent years, there has been much discussion about rare earths and other materials that are not so plentiful for today's industry requirements. Fluorite, otherwise known as fluorspar, is on the borderline as a scarce material, but the Chinese authorities have bracketed it in the same category as rare earths.
More recently, one of the world's leading technology suppliers has commenced legal proceedings against the world's largest ALF3 producer, alleging failure to honour technology agreements.
These are just some of the many reasons why this study is an important document for those in the industry, right now.
This exclusive study from Metal Bulletin Research is the first of its kind providing detailed coverage of the Chinese aluminium fluoride market.
