  • Description:  
    Abstract The polyethylene resin mainly includes Low-density PE(LDPE), linear low-density PE (LLDPE), high-density PE (HDPE) and middle-density PE (MDPE). In 1998, the international demand on LDPE was 28.804 million tons, for which, the Asia accounted for 6.8%, the West Europe accounted for 33.3%. It is forecasted that by 2008, the Asian demand on LDPE will increase rapidly, and Asia will become the largest consumption market in the world, and its demand will account for 38.5% of the total consumption of the world, and that of the West Europe will decrease to 18.7%. It has a very wide application for polyethylene in China, and film is its largest application field, which consumes 70-80% LDPE, and 17% HDPE. Injection molding is the largest application field for HDPE, and this tendency is continuing. It is forecasted that by 2005, China's demand on polyethylene will increase at a speed of 5.3% continuously. Among which, the increasing speed for LDPE will be slightly higher than that for HDPE due to the high increasing speed of LLDPE, and reach to 6.8%. At that time, China's demand on PE will be up to 7.65million tons, among which, 4.889 million tons for LDPE, and 2.761 million tons for HDPE. By the end of 1999, China has owned18 sets of LDPE production apparatuses, with a production capacity of 1.739 million tons; 8 sets of HDPE production apparatuses, with a production capacity of 0.831 million tons. The domestic resin has fewer varieties, and most of them are general-purpose products, which account for 82% of the total output in 1998. For LLDPE, the output of general-purpose film accounts for more than 90% of the total one. The production of C8 and metallocene products is blank in China. The output of HDPE product for lugging material accounts for more than 60% of the total output, while it has few products with high added values and with high domestic demand, such as material for high strength film and hollow material, etc. It has a large developing space for China's PE market, and the down-stream plastic processing industry develops rapidly, especially for some products with high added values, the increasing speed for demand on them is even up to be more than 10%, such as material for wrapping film. However, presently, the PE products in China can't meet demand from the down-stream processing industry, most products with high added value are imported. In 1999, the import of PE in China is up to 2.599million tons. If foreign investors can take advantage of China's broad market space and human resource, cut down labor cost, and build some PE apparatuses with high technology, they will achieve good profits.
