The Development Trend Of Acrylic In China Market
- Mar 16, 2018 -

MMA commonly known as organic glass, also called acrylic or acrylic, the people of Hong Kong is more strength, is a kind of development early important thermoplastic, has good transparency, chemical stability and weather resistance, easy dyeing, easy processing, nice appearance, has been widely used in the construction industry. Organic glass products can be divided into casting boards, extrusion boards and molding plastics.

1. Plexiglass (acrylic) application in the construction industry in terms of architecture, plexiglass (acrylic) is mainly used in architectural lighting, transparent roof, roof, telephone booth, stair and room wall sheeting, etc; Sanitary ware has a bathtub, washbasin, dresser and other products. In recent years, the application development of high speed road and high grade road lighting and car lighting is also very fast. Among them, the market growth of building lighting body, bathtub, street advertisement lamp box and telephone booth is fast, and the future development space is big, the market prospect is very broad.

In recent years, with each big city hotel, hotel and residential construction, architectural lighting body is developing rapidly in our country, using plexiglass (acrylic) extrusion plate made of a light body, with the overall structure of the high strength, light weight, high light transmittance, high safety performance special advantages, compared with inorganic glass mining light place, has great superiority.

At present, the United States and Japan have made mandatory provisions in the law, and the glass of primary and secondary schools and kindergartens must be made of plexiglass (acrylic). With the continuous improvement of our country's laws and regulations, it is expected that in the near future, Chinese law will also stipulate that the glass of primary and secondary schools and kindergartens must be made of plexiglass (acrylic). At the same time, the pace of urban construction has been speeded up all over the country, street signs, advertisement boxes and telephone booths have appeared, among which a considerable proportion of the materials used are acrylic materials.

In sanitary ware, as a result of plexiglass acrylic bathtubs has the luxurious appearance, a sense of depth, easy to clean, high strength, light quality and comfortable use, etc, is widely used in recent years, the current domestic organic glass acrylic bathtubs about 1.5 million with an annual output, consumption PMMA extrusion plate or casting 5000 tons.

With the improvement of China's building codes, PMMA will be more competitive in more application fields. In addition, special organic glass, such as optical plexiglass, anti - ray organic glass and cd-grade plexiglass, are still blank in China's construction industry.

China's organic glass (acrylic) PMMA production and market situation China's total production capacity of organic glass products is about 130,000 tons per day, producing a lot of manufacturers, but the production scale is small.

Domestic organic glass acrylic production and processing capacity is very big, but the unreasonable product structure, only common varieties of products, high value-added products, lack of construction need in variety and quality can't meet the demand of the market, such as building a great demand for the extrusion plate needs a large number of imported from abroad.

In recent years, China's consumption of plexiglass (acrylic) is growing rapidly, but in China, the varieties of organic glass PMMA drab, quantity is less, the quality is poorer, far cannot satisfy the needs of the domestic market, leading to imports increase year by year. In 2000, the import of PMMA molded plastic in China reached 77,000 tons, and nearly 4,000 tons of organic glass plates were imported. In terms of imports, the total imports of guangdong, Shanghai, zhejiang and jiangsu accounted for about 95% of the total imports. Jiangsu, Shanghai is China's main production of organic glass casting board area, due to the pouring process is simple, less investment, so many township enterprises in the process of mill production, the device is small, the quality of the product is far short of the quality of the building materials industry standards, in foreign countries is already obsolete.

In the 1980s, the annual sales volume of organic glass in China was less than 20,000 tons, and the consumption market was not dominated by the construction industry. Into the 90 s, PMMA market application in the construction industry has a larger development, consumption is growing rapidly, has reached 85000 tons in 2000, the pouring plate 29000 tons, 25000 tons of extrusion plate, die 31000 tons of plastic (not including extrusion sheet molding compound). It is expected that in the next few years, the growth rate of the domestic acrylic glass market will remain above 6%. It is estimated that by 2005, the market capacity of acrylic glass in China will be 110,000 tons, with construction accounting for 60% ~ 70%.
