In 2010 ~ 2012, because up to two splendid Xinjiang, Xinjiang Dragon 2, Jiangxi Longda Chemical Fiber, Sateri (Jiangxi) 2 works projects such as the Yami 2 gradually put into production, the domestic production of viscose staple fiber industry, will expand the size of nearly 60 million tons.
Such explosive growth in capacity, so that many in the industry believe that the viscose industry overcapacity time coming. However, I believe that, with the differentiation rate of viscose staple fibers continuous improvement, the traditional 1.5D Viscose staple fiber market is gradually split into a market-based 1.5D, bamboo fiber, high white fiber, fine denier fiber, flame-retardant fibers and other products, supplemented by the diversified markets.
Bamboo fiber to ease the pressure of raw materials
Bamboo fiber viscose fiber products is a relatively successful case. In the early days of bamboo fiber, the industry has occurred in Southern pulp (Shanghai pulp plant) and the North pulp (Hebei Ji Wara fiber), two bamboo fiber pulp pulp enterprises for patent cases. This patent dispute, sparked widespread concern on the bamboo fiber. In November 2005, “bamboo” Fiber Industry Alliance, whose purpose is the joint development alliance business manager of the “bamboo” fiber and its downstream products. The emergence of this industry alliance, is an innovation in traditional industries. From 2005 to the present, “bamboo” Industrial Union continues to grow, bamboo fiber gradually deepening the hearts of consumers.
From the industry perspective, the industry, the emergence of alliances, making bamboo fiber to break the traditional new product development from the shackles of the downstream. Bamboo fiber, as a branch of viscose fibers in the spinnability Cengzaoyuguo also some bottlenecks, such as static electricity generated when spinning larger, knotted rate, high rate of breakage. After the emergence of these problems, it is a large unit in the industrial union, the Kyrgyz Wara fiber and downstream production enterprises collaborate to make bamboo fiber spinning, etc. can be a greater level of performance improved. In the continuous improvement process, the consumers will ultimately endorsed the bamboo fiber products.
Second half of 2008, when the financial crisis has created the industry’s enterprises with heavy losses, the Kyrgyz Wara fiber seize the historic opportunity to phase out the traditional 1.5D viscose staple fiber market, and energy into bamboo fiber production. This makes Kyrgyzstan Wara fiber in the financial crisis continued to maintain a good profitability.
At present, in addition to Kyrgyzstan Wara fiber bamboo fiber can be produced, the Tangshan three friends also have their own bamboo fiber production processes. Other companies, such as in Shandong Hai, Zhejiang Wealthy up, also capable of producing bamboo fiber conditions. The emergence of bamboo fiber, on the one hand to ease the raw materials (cotton, wood pulp) shortage of pressure on the solution of the capacity expansion brought by the downstream market competition. At present, Hebei Ji Wara fiber bamboo fiber has a capacity of 30,000 tons / year, the source of its pulp plant in Hunan TOP has 4 million ton / year bamboo pulp production capacity. In December 2009, Jilin Chemical Fiber Group and Sichuan jiangan county signed an “investment agreement”, Jilin, Sichuan, and bamboo fiber-owned subsidiaries will be wholly relocated to Yangchun jiangan county industrial park, the new 100,000 tons / year bamboo pulp and 60,000 tons / year of viscose staple fiber project, with a total investment of about 1.5 billion. In which an investment of about 5 million, the proposed 50 thousand tons / year bamboo pulp fiber is scheduled to start construction in April 2010.
High-white gap in higher demand for fiber,
Primarily used in high-white non-woven fibers, the major producers of domestic enterprises in Tangshan three friends Sateri (Jiangxi) 2. High-white fibers in the field of non-woven fabrics used for medical, health aspects, such as baby diapers, cleaning towels, gauze, bandages and other special materials.
According to market statistics, China now has an annual demand of high whiteness and viscose fibers about 4.5 million tons, of which imports 3 million tons, mainly from Indonesia and Taiwan, the rest by domestic manufacturers to produce products, cumulative production for the more than 10,000 tons. At present, the domestic production of high whiteness viscose fiber manufacturers are mainly Tangshan three friends Sateri production of high-white fibers mainly for export. This shows that the high domestic demand for viscose fiber whiteness a big shortfall, has good market prospects.
Experts predict that the environmentally friendly, high-tech functional, health-care model, which will be the future of the international textile and clothing market, the main characters. With high whiteness viscose fiber as raw material, non-woven cloth, in the medical, nursing, health products, cosmetics and other industrial fields has a unique purpose. From the look in recent years, the momentum of rapid development of non-woven fabric. According to China’s Industrial Textiles Industry Association statistics, in 2004 and 2006, total domestic demand for spunlace fabrics at an average annual growth rate of 30%, of which the growth rate of demand for high-grade spunlace fabrics more than 40%. With the improvement of people’s living standards and health awareness increases, spunlace fabric the next few years, the annual demand growth rate will stabilize at 35% or more, while the non-woven industry in recent years, production growth is also stable at 7% ~ 10%.
Improve value-added fine denier flame-retardant fiber
Fine denier fiber because fiber diameter thin and has a good performance, taking the product feel comfortable, in the textile fiber occupies a dominant position. In the alternative to natural fibers, the use of fine denier fibers can produce a high simulation fiber, so that simulation fabrics light, soft, cool, smooth features, better access to real silk appearance and feel. Fine denier fiber can be used for synthetic leather, clean cloth, high-density water-proof fabric, liquid or air filtration material, shellfish and seaweed suppression layer, insulation materials, functional paper, battery separator and so on. At present, the production of fine denier viscose fibers mainly lenzing monopoly, the market prospect is broad.
At present, the domestic and overseas markets have been more than a dozen varieties of flame-retardant fiber. Are mainly the traditional flame-retardant fibers and flame-retardant flame-retardant polyester acrylic fiber, but two kinds of fibers in a fire or heat due to occur when melting, dripping molten material is apt to cause secondary fires will cause burns on the human body. Other flame-retardant synthetic fibers such as poly-phenylene diamine benzene two formyl fibers, polyimide fibers, heterocyclic polymer polybenzimidazole fiber, although the droplet to overcome the shortcomings, but because of technical difficulties, production costs are high, expensive and unlikely to be generalizable.
Shandong Hai in the field of flame-retardant fiber to achieve a breakthrough. Its production of colored fire-retardant fiber is a kind of flame-retardant properties of high-tech anti-droplet fiber new material. The product uses a new generation of fiber flame retardant technology – sol-gel technology to produce not only guarantee the excellent physical properties of the fiber, but also achieved a low-smoke, non-toxic, non-odor, non-dripping and other characteristics of melting. Their textile application performance, security, performance, and value-added greatly improved and can be widely used in commercial, industrial and military and other fields. According to market research, only a year U.S. market demand for flame-retardant cellulose fiber reached nearly 4 million tons.
With the end-consumer demand and further expansion of the four kinds of differential fiber will have a broader space for development. According to incomplete statistics, 2010 ~ 2012 China’s demand for viscose fiber differentiation in the vicinity of 850,000 tons. In other words, viscose staple fiber industry expansion has a strong support base downstream. In particular, based on differential behavior of fiber-based expansion will not affect the normal operation of the market.
