Specialty fibers are new high crystallinity, high strength, high molecular weight performance fibers. Carbon fiber, aramid fiber and ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) fiber are the most common type of specialty fibers.
In terms of type, aramid fiber is the main Specialty fiber which can be divided into para aramid meta aramid. In 2016, the para aramid holds about 68.23% of global market share. They are mainly used in the fields of body armor & helmet, aerospace materials, sports materials, tires high strength rope, etc.
At present, in the foreign industrial developed countries the specialty fiber industry is generally at a more advanced level, the world's large enterprises are mainly concentrated in the DSM, Toray, Mitsubishi Rayon, Dupont, Teijin etc. accounted for most of the international market share. Meanwhile, these companies have more advanced equipment, strong R&D capabilities; the technical level is in a leading position. But foreign companies’ manufacturing cost is relatively high, compared with Chinese companies, the manufacturing cost is competitive disadvantage, as the Chinese specialty fiber production enterprise technology continues to improve, their share in the international market is increasing, competitiveness in the international market gradually increase.
The industry is dominated by developed countries; the development of the specialty fiber industry in China also gets rapid development. We predict the production growth rate in China in the future will be bigger than the global growth rate of specialty fiber production.
We tend to believe this industry is a promising industry, and the consumption increasing degree will show a smooth growth curve. For product prices, the slow downward trend in recent years will maintain in the future as competition intensifies. Besides, prices gap between different brands will go narrowing gradually. Also, there will be fluctuation in gross margin.
