As the largest PF producer and consumer around the world, China's PF capacity is 491,000t/a as of April 2011, accounting for 57% worldwide. Moreover, the consumption of PF in 2010 reaches 143,500 tonnes in China, holding 43% of the total globally.
Although both output and consumption of PF have slowed much in China in 2009 and 2010 due to the downturn of downstream industries impacted by financial crisis, China's PF industry is recovering in 2009 and 2010.
In China, PF is mainly used in the production of agrochemical, resin, pharmaceutical, etc. Agrochemical industry is the largest consumption field of PF, and the next is resin. Moreover, glyphosate technical by AEA route is the largest downstream product of PF in China, and its consumption of PF is also very high.
Generally, the price fluctuation of PF is greatly influenced by raw material, methanol or formaldehyde. After a sluggish period in 2009, the price of PF has climbed quickly in 2011, supported by increasing price of raw material. And it reaches the new highest point in April 2011 after global financial crisis.
