China's output of ABS resins ranks first in the world, but high-end products is in short supply.
With the continuing improvement of domestic macrocconomic situation and the constant tight supply of energy and raw materials, ABS has always been in short supply, and its production capacity has grown rapidly, of which the joint-venture ABS capacity develops fastest. By the end of 2010, China's ABS capacity and annual output had reached X.XX million t/a and X.X million tons, respectively, both ranking first in the world (see Table X). China's major ABS producers and their capacity in 2010 are listed in Table X.

Although China has become the world's largest ABS producer and consumer, its ABS industry is still in the extensive development stage, featuring backward technologies, a monotonous product structure and little standardization. These make most of ABS products, especially high-performance ABS products, in China have to be imported from abroad for a long time. In particular, the supply of high-performance ABS products is becoming tight year by year in the country. Despite the rapid growth of its ABS production capacity and output, China still imports a large amount of ABS products each year, having a high dependence on imports. In 2010, China imported X.X million tons of ABS and exported XX XXX tons. The country's imports and exports of ABS during 2006 - 2010 are listed in Table X.

Consumption is concentrated in East and South China, and demand will continue to grow fast.
In China, the consumption of ABS is mainly concentrated in the country's south and east regions. South China accounts for XX% of the national total ABS consumption, and East China accounts for XX% (see Figure X).
South China XX%
Central China X%
North China X%
East China XX%

Note: Table made from pie chart.
During the "Eleventh Five-Year Plan" period (2006-2010), the rapid development of electronic information, automobile and real estate industries and the improvement of residents' consumption level in China brought a huge space for the development of synthetic resins. In 2010, the apparent consumption of ABS in China reached X million tons. By 2015, it will reach X.X million tons, having an average annual growth rate of X% during 2011-2015. China's consumption of ABS during 2006 - 2010 is listed in Table X.
