2023 Iron Oxide Pigment Conference Convened

2023 Iron Oxide Pigment Conference Convened

2024-01-05

The Council of the Iron Oxide Pigment Branch of the China Coatings Industry Association convened in 2023.


During the meeting, discussions and deliberations were held on the work and economic performance of the iron oxide industry in 2022. Representatives from the industry gathered to provide suggestions and efforts for the development of iron oxide pigments, providing valuable insights for the future development of the industry after regulatory adjustments due to the pandemic.


The current situation faced by the industry includes: 1) The era of rapid economic growth has passed; 2) The era of large-scale infrastructure construction has ended; and 3) The post-pandemic era has arrived. As the iron oxide industry plans for future development, there is a need for transformation from single-purpose color pigments to diversified new materials. There are still shortcomings in talent reserves and technology research and development, which further promote the growth and progress of the industry. Currently, the iron oxide industry has entered a normal production and marketing management process. Affected by the demand from downstream industries such as building materials, coatings, plastics, and rubber, foreign users have increased confidence due to regulatory adjustments in China, and the prospects for international trade in the industry are expected to gradually improve. Leadership at various enterprise levels is uniting efforts to adhere to green, energy-saving, and low-carbon production, achieving green and clean production.


At this meeting, the Council approved the summary of the work of the Iron Oxide Pigment Branch in 2022. During the session, members discussed the recent economic situation of the industry and faced challenges head-on, especially with leading companies maintaining a steady business outlook amidst difficult conditions. In response to strict safety and environmental protection requirements from authorities at all levels, they addressed issues comprehensively and made improvements in safety and environmental management for both industries and companies. Facing various risk factors affecting enterprise development, many companies withstood pressure, dared to compete, and effectively resolved historical and accumulated contradictions.


At the same time, some members called for market cooperation to gain a competitive edge in the ever-changing industry situation. They also emphasized the importance of establishing a solid entry threshold for the industry and accelerating the establishment of a green production alliance. Member companies have the responsibility and obligation to unite and guide other companies in the region to accelerate their green development process, continuously promote industrial competition, digest excess capacity, eliminate polluting processes, and strive to build a healthy industrial competition pattern.

In 2022, among the top producers in terms of sales volume within the industry, nearly two dozen companies produced 595,000 tons and sold 556,050 tons, accounting for 93.37% and 91.07% of the total production and sales volume in the industry respectively. The overall industry achieved stable operation. The total market supply within the industry was 240,000 tons, and with an additional import volume of 144,000 tons through general trade channels, the combined apparent consumption reached 388,000 tons, a decrease of 11.21% compared to the previous year. Globally, the apparent consumption of iron oxide pigments in 2022 is estimated to be around 750,000 tons, with China accounting for approximately 51.2% of the world's total consumption of iron oxide pigments. This fully demonstrates that China continues to maintain its status as a major producer and consumer of iron oxide pigments.


Within the industry, there are leading companies such as Zhejiang Huayuan Pigment Co., Ltd. (national level) and Jiangsu Yuxing Technology Co., Ltd. (Jiangsu provincial level), which serve as role models and spearhead the development of the industry. "We need both large enterprises with industry influence and small-medium enterprises that excel in specialized fields." The China Coatings Industry Association has accelerated the cultivation of a batch of specialized and innovative "little giant" enterprises in the inorganic pigments industry, guiding small and medium-sized enterprises in the iron oxide industry to pursue specialized, refined, distinctive, innovative development, strengthening and improving the professionalization, specialization, refinement, and competitiveness of the iron oxide pigment manufacturing industry. By doing so, it enhances the stability and competitiveness of the iron oxide pigment industry supply chain.


As a pigment user company, Lianyungang Top Technology Co., Ltd. will benefit from the progress and advancement of iron oxide dyes, allowing us to maintain a favorable position in the face of foreign competition.

Mitsui Chemicals has obtained ISCC PLUS certifications for its phenolic resin chain products IPA and MIBK in April and July of this year, respectively. ISCC PLUS is one of the international certification systems for sustainable products. Therefore, Mitsui Chemicals has completed ISCC PLUS certifications for all seven types of phenolic resin chain products in the company. These seven products include: phenol, acetone, α-methylstyrene, bisphenol A, epoxy resin, IPA, and MIBK.

Mitsui Chemicals has signed a joint research agreement with Associate Professor Yasushi Kikuchi's team at the Future Initiatives Research Institute of the University of Tokyo and Mitsui Chemicals Inc., and has started conducting LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) calculations for epoxy resins derived from biomass naphtha and petroleum naphtha. LCA calculations for phenol, acetone, α-methylstyrene, and bisphenol A were also carried out during the research process. The LCA calculation results for Japan's first biomass naphtha-derived phenol chain product are planned to be released in fiscal year 2023. Mitsui Chemicals will strive to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and other harmful substances to the environment.
