China is one of major countries producing sulfanilic acid in the world. In the previous years, European Union and U.S.A. kept carrying out the anti-dumping investigations towards Chinese sulfanilic acid industry. Now this industry still develops well, though the situation is not that bright as before.

Chinese sulfanilic acid industry has developing for about 20 years. Most of Chinese sulfanilic acid is exported overseas for the limited domestic market demand. Now the production capacity of sulfanilic acid is over 30,000t/a, with the annual output of over 20,000t/a. With such large–scale production, now China has already become an important player in the world.

Meanwhile, the production of sulfanilic acid in China is highly affected by its raw materials, including aniline and sulphuric acid. Because of the huge capacity of aniline industry, the effect of aniline is not that severe. However, affected by the domestic sulphur market, the sulfanilic acid industry has gone into an awkward situation.

This also means opportunity. Chinese domestic demand from the dyestuffs and pigment is also increasing, though the growth rate is not that high as the demand from international market.

Moreover, threat also exists. Chinese governmental policy is influencing this industry. The cut-down of export subsidy and the pollution control measures also make the production situation even worse, when the comprehensive price increase of raw materials are happening all over the world. This report gives you an in-depth perspective into this industry.

Based on the correct information of each active producer, CCM carried out the reasonable research and forecast. Moreover, the competitiveness of each producer is analyzed from the perspective of its export-oriented property.

About four-year analysis of import and export volume (2004-Oct.2007), the factor affecting the overseas market most, is presented with good validity. According to different grades of sulfanilic acid, the corresponding consumption analysis in China is delivered, with many end users being presented.
