South Chinese province Guangdong will continue to be a leading production region of plastics products in the country, an industry leader in the province forecast.


"We expect the output volume and output value of the plastics industry in the province will hit 1,360 million tons and RMB300 billion in 2015 respectively, making a double increase from 2006," said Fu An, President of Guangdong Plastics Industry Association, at the latest session of Chinaplas 2008 serial press conferences held in Dongguan, a key industrial city in Guangdong.


In 2006, the output volume of Guangdong plastics industry was 680 million tons, while the output value was RMB152.0 billion, accounting for 23.9% of the national total. The workforce amounted to some 400,000 people.


In a shorter term, the output volume and output value of the industry are forecast to reach 930 million tons and RMB200 billion respectively.



Potential areas


Explaining this strong growth momentum, Mr Fu attributed it to a solid foundation, mature infrastructure, as well as strong market demand for different kinds of plastics products, including those for agricultural and geosynthetic use, those for construction, automotive and medical applications, and so on.


With respect to agricultural plastics, agricultural film, plastic membranes, forage membranes, irrigation pipes and water saving devices are in great demand. The plastic materials mostly used to make these kinds of plastic products are PE, PVC and CPE.


Geosynthetic plastic products refer to those used in drainage, transportation, railway and building for waterproofing purpose. The materials mostly used are PVC and CPE.


Concerning packaging, the kinds of products of the greatest output volumes are plastic soft wrappers, plastic knit bags, hollow containers and circulation boxes. The materials mostly used are PE, BOPP, BOPET, CPP, PET, Ps and polyolefins.


Mr Fu added that plastic construction materials such as plastic pipes for water supply, plastic doors and windows, high-polymer waterproof sheets, electrical wires and cables, would have a soaring consumption in the coming five to 15 years. The materials mostly used are PVC, PE, PP, PU, PS, and foam materials.


In addition, there would be an increasing demand for such plastics as PP, PVC, PU, PE, ABS, PA, PC, and all kinds of modified plastics, following the fever in the automotive industry to reduce car weight, as well as a wider and wider use of plastics in the electrical appliances industry.


Last but not least, Mr Fu noted the potential of medical plastics – such as PE, PP and PVC – for the production of plastic implants; as well as disposable plastic products like plastic infusion sets, anesthesia inhalers, and products for blood purification or extracorporeal circulation.


Chinaplas 2008 – the 22nd International Exhibition on Plastics and Rubber Industries is scheduled to be held in Shanghai New International Expo Centre, Pudong, Shanghai, PR China from April 17-20, 2008. It is expected to feature more than 1,700 exhibitors on an exhibition space of 120,000 square meters in total.
