Fine chemicals are one of the most dynamic emerging field in the chemical industry at present, and it is an important part of the new material. Fine chemical products have many kinds and high added value, versatile, industry related degree, and they directly serve the national economy, many industries and high-tech industries in various fields. Vigorously develop fine chemical industry has become the world chemical industry structure adjustment, the chemical industry to enhance and expand the economic benefits of industry-level strategic focus. Rate of fine chemicals (fine chemicals production value accounting for chemical GDP ratio) has become the measure of the level of a country or regional level of development of chemical industry and chemical technology an important indicator of the level.
Overall development trend of the world's fine chemical Looking past 20 years, the world's chemical development process, countries, especially the U.S., Europe, Japan and other developed countries in the chemical industry and its famous multinational chemical company, Copper Chromite(CC) attach great importance to the development of fine chemicals, fine chemicals as the Adjust chemical industrial structure, improve value-added products, enhance the international competitiveness of the effective measures, the world trend of rapid development fine chemicals, industrial concentration further increased. In the 21st century, the world marked the development of fine chemical characteristics are: industry clusters, clean technology, energy conservation, product diversification, specialization, high performance.
The 1990s, the world's highly developed based on the deep processing of petrochemical development and the booming high-tech world of fine chemicals has been an unprecedented rapid development, its growth rate significantly higher than the chemical industry. In recent years, the world's total annual sales of chemical products is about 1.5 trillion dollars, fine chemicals and specialty chemicals is about $ 380 billion, an average annual growth rate of 5 to 6%, higher than the chemical industry 2 to 3 percentage points. Expected to 2010, the global fine chemicals market will continue to 6% average annual growth rate. In 2008, the world's fine chemicals market will reach $ 450 billion. Currently, varieties of fine chemicals for more than 10 million. Rate is a measure of a fine national and regional chemical industry an important indicator of the level of technology. The United States, Western Europe and Japan and other chemical industries in developed countries, Triphenyl Bismuth and most of its fine chemicals developed, which represents the current level of development of the world of fine chemicals. At present, the refinement of these countries has reached 60 to 70%. In recent years, fine chemicals annual sales of approximately U.S. $ 125 billion, ranking first in the world, Europe is about $ 100 billion, Japan is about $ 60 billion in third place. The three together account for about 75% of total world sales of more than.
Strengthen technical innovation, adjust and optimize the structure of fine chemical products, focusing on developing high-performance, specialization, green products, fine chemicals has become the world an important feature of development, but also the future development of the world's key fine chemical direction. Development of fine chemicals in Japan, for example, technological innovation, the development of fine chemicals play a crucial role. Over the past 10 years, synthetic dyes and traditional Japanese fine chemicals market, cut in half, replaced by a large number of developing functional, high-end green fine chemicals, which greatly enhanced the fine chemical industry, energy levels and economic benefits. For example, fine chemicals suppliers focusing on development for the semiconductor and flat panel displays and other electronic functional areas of fine chemicals, the Japanese in the information recording and display materials and other high-end products to establish a dominant position. In the catalyst, along with increasingly stringent environmental regulations, to meet the sulfur-free gasoline and other environment-friendly fuel for Japan to actively develop new environmentally friendly catalysts. The current high-performance ultra-deep desulfurization catalyst catalyst catalyst industry in Japan has a considerable share of high desulfurization capacity from less than 50μg / g increased to less than 10μg / g, which also contributed to the overall development of industrial catalysts. Japan in 2004 for deep desulfurization of refinery hydrotreating catalyst production process over the previous year increased by nearly 60%, sales increased by 43%. At the same time, for the petroleum chemicals and automobile exhaust purification catalyst is also a double-digit sales growth, accounting for half of the catalyst market. Japan catalyst production and sales last year increased by 7% and 5%, breaking the record of the past six years. Source:
