Production and Market of Alpha and Beta-Pinene in China 2013 Edition (5)

As the main component of turpentine, alpha-pinene (α-pinene) and beta-pinene (β-pinene) are also important forest chemicals in China.

Since a large amount of pinene is exported annually in recent years, the global economy situation is very important for pinene industry. After global financial crisis in 2008, global economy recovers difficultly, though China takes the lead in economic recovery around the world, with the implementation of massive stimulus package. However, the negative effects of massive stimulus package have appeared since 2010, such as debt crisis, high inflation rate. How much does this affect China’s pinene industry in recent three years? CCM will figure out it in this report.

In 2012, the output of pinene dropped a lot. In this pinene report, CCM will tell you the details of the changes in the past years and the changing trend in the next five to ten years.

China is still a very important supplier of pinene for the world, and a large quantity of pinene is exported annually while little pinene is imported. In this report, the detailed export situation of pinene (α-pinene and β-pinene) in 2011 and 2012 and general information about pinene export will be analyzed.

In China, α-pinene is mainly applied in dihydromyrcene/dihydromyrcenol, synthetic camphor, synthetic borneol and all kinds of synthetic perfume. β-pinene is mainly applied in synthesized flavors and polymerized terpene resin. In this report, you will find market shares of these two kinds of pinene in 2011 as well as the forecast on pinene consumption in the following five to ten years..

Besides the points above, CCM will also offer an insightful analysis on the following aspects:

  • Prices of α-pinene and β-pinene in the past and currently
  • Supply situation of all pinene producers
  • Introduction to major derivatives of α-pinene and β-pinene
  • Raw material supply for α-pinene and β-pinene
  • Key influencing factors for the development of α-pinene and β-pinene industry in China
  • Detailed introduction to major active pinene producers and key pinene export merchants in China
