In recent years, the adhesive market has grown strongly. It is estimated that by 2020, the global adhesive and sealant market size is expected to reach 60 billion US dollars, with an annual growth rate of 4.7%. As the focus of production and consumption of the global adhesive market gradually shifts to Asia, the huge Chinese market has gradually become a battleground for all major adhesive giants.
At present, China's adhesive industry has entered a new stage of development. While maintaining rapid growth, it is also facing a series of new major challenges: the industry's backward and overcapacity is prominent, environmental protection requirements are becoming stricter, companies are forced to limit or suspend production, and chemical companies are relocated The task is arduous, Sino-U.S. Trade frictions are intensified, raw material prices are too large and fast, and market competition is becoming increasingly fierce ...

I. Market Status of China Adhesives and Sealants Industry
In 2018, China's adhesive and adhesive tape industry still achieved good results through continuous adjustment of industrial structure, continuous technological innovation, rapid improvement of product quality, and efforts to expand application areas. The development of the adhesive industry has the following three obvious characteristics: the overall economic operation is stable and good, the quality and efficiency continue to improve, and the profit and loss differentiation continues to coexist.
Sales volume: the growth trend is good, and the industrial structure adjustment brings market differentiation
According to statistics from China Adhesives and Adhesive Tapes Industry Association, China's adhesives and sealants industry has maintained a growth momentum from 2013 to 2017. In 2017, the sales and sales of adhesives and sealants were 7.878 million tons and 98.78 billion yuan, respectively, an increase of 7.5% and 10.1%. This fully shows that in the face of severe situations and difficult challenges in 2017, China's adhesives industry has continuously improved its quality control and technical management level, the industrial structure adjustment has been steadily advanced, and the technical foundation for industry development has been further strengthened.
Figure 1 Sales volume, sales and growth rate of adhesives and sealants, 2013-2017
The types of adhesives that are growing rapidly in China are: epoxy resin adhesives, silicone adhesives, SBC hot melt adhesives, polyolefin hot melt adhesives, and EVA hot melt adhesives. The sales of solvent-based chloroprene adhesives, solvent-based SBS adhesives, cyanoacrylate adhesives, anaerobic adhesives, and polysulfide sealants all declined. This reflects that in recent years, the adjustment of the industrial structure has brought about market differentiation. "Modified, water-based adhesives and new hot-melt adhesives" have been encouraged and supported by the national industrial policy, and also sought after and welcomed by the market. The development of solvent-based products has been significantly limited.
Import and export: changes in export situation, the United States becomes the largest exporter
In 2017, the size and demand of China's adhesive market further expanded. While the number and amount of imported products increased steadily, the export situation has also undergone important changes. The number and amount of exported products have shown substantial growth. According to China's customs statistics, in 2017 China's adhesive export volume was 602,400 tons, an increase of 22.44% over 2016. During the same period, the import volume of adhesives was 208,800 tons, an increase of 1.85% over 2016.
From the perspective of importing countries, the top 10 countries / regions with the largest number of adhesive imports in China in 2017 were: Japan, Taiwan Peng Jinma Customs Zone, South Korea, Germany, United States, Malaysia, Italy, France, Singapore, Switzerland. At the same time, imports from the top 5 countries / regions accounted for 79.0% of the total imports for the year, indicating that the source of imports is very concentrated;
From the perspective of exporting countries, the top 10 countries / regions with the largest number of adhesive exports in China in 2017 were: the United States, Vietnam, India, Indonesia, Japan, Thailand, Hong Kong, Korea, Taiwan, and the Philippines. The export volume of the top 10 countries / regions accounts for 49.8% of the total export volume of the year, indicating that the exporting countries are very scattered. In 2017, the growth rates of China's adhesive exports to the United States and Vietnam reached 144.7% and 21.5%, respectively. The United States has become the largest export destination.
As the most important partner country of the adhesive and adhesive tape industry in China, the United States and China have formed a highly dependent relationship between you and me, and the two industries are highly complementary. If China and the United States further expand the imposition of tariffs, the impact and impact of the adhesive and adhesive tape industry will be more direct and obvious. If the industry pays great attention, it is necessary to closely observe market demand, product prices, investment confidence, industry operation, and exchange rates. Changes, etc. The Sino-US trade friction has shown us that there is a huge technological gap between the two sides. In the future, technologies such as the market for technology, funds to buy technology, and talents to introduce technology may not be sustainable in the future. Only by independent innovation and catching up can we take the initiative.
Hold firmly on the new opportunities of the “Belt and Road”
The “Belt and Road” initiative has added new impetus and provided a new platform for the sustainable development of the adhesive and adhesive tape industry. Looking at the customs import and export data in recent years, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and Europe are not only the concentrated areas for the export of our industry's products, but also our enterprises to strengthen overseas investment and build factories, establish research and development centers, improve sales and service bases, and improve high-end product research and development Opportunity for manufacturing capabilities. We encourage powerful enterprises to "go global", strive to build a domestic and international sales channel, actively respond to the national "Belt and Road" initiative, and work hard to promote the development of enterprises to a larger scale, higher level and deeper level.
