ABS is Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene. It is a 3-component copolymer developed in the 40s, a synthesized resin with large consumption, and it is positioned between engineering plastic and general-purpose plastic. ABS resin is characterized by being heat-resistive, with high surface hardness, steady dimension, good chemical-resistance and electric performance, easy to form and manufacture mechanically.
In 1999, the total output of ABS resin in the world was about 3.97 million ton, increasing about 5.6% over 1998. Among which, the ABS output from Asia accounted for more than 60%, while that from North America and West Europe accounted for about 17%, respectively. For Asian countries and areas, Taiwan has the largest ABS resin output, accounting for nearly 40% of the total of the Asia; followed by Korea and Japan, whose ABS outputs are more than 20% of the total output of Asia, respectively.
In 1999, the consumption of ABS resin in China was nearly 1.50 million ton, its market scale ranked first all over the world, and surpasses the sum of that of North America and West Europe, who rank the second and the third respectively, and China's consumption accounts for 37.5% of the total consumption in the world.
The ABS consumption in China is characterized that the usage of ABS resin products is focused in all kinds of outfits for electronic and electric equipment, which accounts for about 78% of the total ABS consumption. Its main application fields include refrigerators for home usage, fans, washers, TV sets, recorders, radios, phone sets, office machines and other home electric appliances. In addition, such light-industry product as toy is also a field consuming much ABS resin. And transportation & communication will be the main force promoting increase in ABS consumption in future, and they are very promising.
Since China's ABS resin industry develops slowly, and achieves some slight effect only in the past two years, the continuous increasing demand on it in China must be depending on import. In the past 10 years, the ABS import increased 12 times. In 1999, according to statistics of the Customs of China, the ABS import volume set a new record, reaching to 1.334 million ton, increasing 0.26 million ton over 1998 with the increasing rate 24.6%.
In future, as living standard of Chinese raises, their demand on various electric devices will increase further. In addition, as automobile industry develops continuously, the growth of ABS resin in transportation field will speed up. If with conservative forecasting principle, it is estimated that in 2005, China's ABS resin market volume will be 2.30-2.40 million ton, the average annual increasing rate is about 7.8%~8.2%.
