Downstream products of acetic acid, in recent years, the majority in a situation of excess production capacity, backward production capacity out of the news everywhere, especially traditional downstream of chloroacetic acid, acetic acid, at present of acetate-ethanol belongs to emerging downstream and production news will continue to increase.
Recently installed downstream of acetic acid production message in succession, Henan Shunda 20 million tons/year acetic acid hydrogenation unit in early June put into production, Tangshan solution technology 10 million tons / year acetic acid and hydrogen device plan by the end of August production, Ningbo Daxie Huatai Fu Sheng, 10 million tons / year acetic acid sec-butyl plant planned for July production, Inner Mongolia Mongolia dimensional 20 million tons / year acetic acid ethylene plant planned October put into production, Inner Mongolia Shuangxin 10 million tons/year acetic acid ethylene plans in October put into production.
The news looks, there is significant support for the future of the acetic acid market, the current oversupply situation, it can be described as good news. Look carefully, downstream products of acetic acid, in recent years, the majority in the overcapacity situation, backward production capacity out of the news everywhere, especially traditional downstream of chloroacetic acid, acetic acid, at present of acetate-ethanol belongs to emerging downstream and production news will continue to increase.
For glacial acetic acid, acetic acid ethanol is also considered to be a new type of downstream development in the future. At present, the news of acetic acid ethanol plant is constantly coming out. From 2013 Serra nice 27.5 million tons/year plant put into operation to the present total capacity increased to 76 tons/year. Acetic acid ethanol to acetic acid consumption in the proportion of 1.2. so the consumption capacity of the glacial acetic acid process greatly. In particular, the current situation of excess capacity of acetic acid production, the industry is particularly concerned about the development of acetic acid ethanol plant.
A few years ago, the domestic acetic acid ethylene plant after rectification shuffle, backward production capacity. Vinyl acetate product in 2014 to usher in the spring, because Europe two sets of devices by the end of 2013 production and third quarter American plant centralized maintenance, foreign vinyl supply has dropped significantly, the domestic market took the opportunity to open channels for export. Thus domestic vinyl acetate ended a few of the embarrassing situation of export.
In the case of export support, domestic sales of acetic acid ethylene significantly improved. Compared with other products in the lower reaches of acetic acid, vinyl acetate is a better product. Production profits in the industrial chain, but also a high profit. Data show that the electric stone method in the first half of 2016, the average profit of about 500 yuan/ton. Ethylene plant average profit is about 400 yuan/ton. The profit incentives, Inner Mongolia and Inner Mongolia Mongolia Wei-jun1 Shuangxin new equipment production news.
2014 domestic sec-butyl acetate industry through the elimination, 10 enterprises, the remaining four started to run, and in low load conditions. So the butyl acetate Market is not optimistic.
In 2016, the SEC butyl acetate Market performance is still just passable. Although the traditional off-season, manufacturers due to export support, the market price is relatively stable relative to the butyl. But the loss of oil market support, acetic acid butyl ester is difficult to continue in 2012 brilliant. In this case, 10 tons/year plant of Ningbo Daxie Huatai Sheng Fu operation is not wise.
Overall, the acetic acid industry chain downstream of the new situation is not too much. In the majority of the excess capacity of the product today, acetic acid cannot be free, although the industry is actively seeking a way out, the effect is not ideal. Besides, it is also urgent to develop the new type of downstream, such as acetyl wood, acetic acid and so on.
