The clarion call for my country's nitrile rubber industry to enter the world's largest country has been sounded

In the rubber and plastics industry, nitrile rubber, one of the most representative rubbers with excellent comprehensive properties such as oil resistance, physical and mechanical properties, and chemical resistance, is widely used in various oil-resistant rubber products and a variety of oil-resistant rubber products. Manufacture of gaskets, gaskets, casings, flexible packaging, flexible hoses, printing and dyeing rubber rollers, cable glue materials, etc. This special synthetic rubber has become an indispensable elastic material in industries such as automobiles, aviation, petroleum, and copying. In 2019, nitrile rubber has the largest consumption in the automotive and transportation industries, accounting for more than 50% of the market.

China is the largest consumer area of nitrile rubber in recent years, accounting for about 39% of the market share in 2019; followed by Europe, which accounted for about 18% of the market share in 2019. In 2020, the global nitrile rubber market reached 11.9 billion yuan, and is expected to reach 15.9 billion yuan in 2026, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.2%.

 It is reported that PetroChina Lanzhou Petrochemical Company broke ground on March 15 this year with an annual output of 35,000 tons of special nitrile rubber project progressing smoothly, and has now entered the final stage of installation. This project is a major transformation and upgrading project of PetroChina, a key construction project of Gansu Province in 2021, and a high-quality development project of Lanzhou Petrochemical. The device has a total investment of nearly 800 million yuan and adopts independent intellectual property technology. The device products cover more than 30 brands of general, special, low nitrile, medium nitrile, and high nitrile series.

 Although my country is already the world's largest producer of nitrile rubber, it accounts for nearly 40% of the global market. However, compared with foreign countries, high-end products are lacking, and products lack international competitiveness. In the past 10 years, my country has made great progress in the field of nitrile rubber, and the products produced have comparable properties to imported rubber. However, some processing and application manufacturers are still using imported nitrile rubber due to the habit of using materials. The industry suggests that domestic nitrile rubber producers should further provide technical services and use technical services to support the expansion of the product market.

  After the Lanzhou Petrochemical 35,000-ton special nitrile rubber project is completed and put into production, the company's nitrile rubber production scale will reach 100,000 tons/year, ranking second in the world and far ahead in China. This is of great significance to further consolidate and develop the leading and leading position of the domestic nitrile rubber market, increase the market share of nitrile rubber and the company's overall economic benefits, and at the same time, it will also have a certain pulling effect on the overall economic development of the western region.

 In recent years, the production capacity of my country's special synthetic rubber industry has been continuously increasing. The state's emphasis on import substitution of special synthetic rubber has continued to increase, and policies and measures have been gradually improved to promote the expansion of special synthetic rubber production capacity. At the same time, the domestic share has been increasing. The downstream application field of special synthetic rubber is dominated by the automobile industry, and it is also widely used in many other industries. With the increase of domestic production enterprises and the improvement of production technology, the application fields of domestic special synthetic rubber have become more extensive, and the market share has continued to increase.

 At present, the independent innovation power of domestic nitrile rubber manufacturers is accelerating and strengthening, and the clarion call for the industry to enter the world's largest country has been sounded.
