In 2012, the global output of epoxy resin (bisphenol A epoxy resin accounted for about 80% -95%) hit about 2.41 million tons, above 90% of which was contributed by Asia, Western Europe and the United States. In recent years, the epoxy resin market in Europe and the United States has tended to be saturated, while the new capacities have been mainly concentrated in the Asian regions, particularly in China.

China is currently the world's largest producer of epoxy resin, sharing approximately 37.1% of the global output. In 2012, the sluggish Chinese epoxy resin market was featured with surplus low-end products, insufficient supply of high-end products and low operating rate (45.9%) of epoxy resin plants. In the next few years, China will improve the capacity of high-end epoxy resin, so as to reduce its dependence on imports.
The global epoxy resin industry is highly concentrated. In 2012, the combined capacity of top five manufacturers including Nan Ya Plastics, Dow Chemical, Momentive, Huntsman and Jiangsu Sanmu Group accounted for 53.1% of the global capacity.
In Mainland China, a few epoxy resin producers enjoy absolute superiority in scale, and the industry concentration degree is lower than that in Europe and America. In 2012, top five epoxy resin manufacturers in Chinese Mainland contributed to 41.8% of China’s total capacity together. By capacity, the first three positions were occupied by Nan Ya Epoxy Resin (Kunshan), Jiangsu Sanmu Group and Baling Petrochemical with 316,000 tons, 200,000 tons and 125,000 tons respectively.

At present, China is still the largest antimony producing and consuming country around the globe. In 2012, the output of antimony concentrate in China reached 129 kilotons, sharing 72% of globe’s total output; the antimony consumption approximated 82 kilotons, sharing 48% or so of world’s total. Under the background of weak antimony market demand in Europe and America, China has become the main force stimulating the growth of global antimony market demand, and the rebounding of downstream fire retardant and storage battery market is the main factor affecting the antimony market in China.
