Due to the industry and wide distribution of industrial gases, the development of different industries will drive the demand of industrial gas market. With the improvement of people's living standards, the demand for food, clothing, housing, electronics, and health care will increase, and industrial gases, especially specialty gases, are inevitable conditions for achieving such trends. In order to meet the needs of the market, downstream enterprises in the industry will choose to cooperate with brand enterprises with high technological content and stable gas quality to accelerate the reshuffle of the industry, so that the market share of the industry will gradually concentrate on leading enterprises.
1. Electronics manufacturing
In electronic manufacturing, the integrated circuit manufacturing industry has been strongly supported by national policies in recent years, and the demand for its upstream specialty gas market has also increased. The chip acts as a carrier for the integrated circuit, and the use of specialty gases runs through the entire production process from chip fabrication to final device packaging. In 2014, China's chip industry imported 217.6 billion US dollars, exceeding oil imports. Taking the mobile phone industry as an example, China's mobile phone production accounts for more than 70% of global mobile phone production, but domestic mobile phone chips account for less than 3% of the global total. Since 2000, in order to encourage the development of the integrated circuit industry, the Chinese government has promulgated a series of policies and regulations to identify the integrated circuit industry as one of the strategic industries. It has successively issued the following policy support measures:
In order to speed up the development of China's integrated circuit industry, the State Council issued the "National Integrated Circuit Industry Development Promotion Outline" in June 2014, and subsequently supported the development of China's integrated circuit industry by establishing funds at the national level, and introduced various tax incentives. Support the development of the integrated circuit industry. The strong support of policies and the pulling effect of downstream mobile intelligent terminals will open up a broad space for the future development of the integrated circuit industry. Industrial intelligentization will certainly make great progress, and at the same time provide more development opportunities for China's electronic special gas enterprises. .
In the flat panel display industry, which is also in the electronics manufacturing industry with integrated circuits, the next few years will be the golden age for the development of the TFT-LCD panel industry in mainland China. According to the data, the demand for liquid crystal materials in mainland China in 2014 was about 116 tons. In 2015, the market size will reach 150 tons, an increase of 26% over the previous year. With the rapid growth of demand in the TFT-LCD market and the active encouragement and promotion of the flat panel display industry by the central and local governments, China's South China, North China, East China and Western China have invested in several large-scale, high-generation TFT-LCD panel projects. It is estimated that by 2017, there will be no fewer than 8.5 generations of high-generation panel lines in mainland China, and each 8.5-generation high-generation panel line requires a large amount of electronic specialty gas. Encouraged by national policies, provinces and cities are also deploying other flat panel display technology industries (such as the AMOLED industry) in addition to the TFT-LCD industry. This demand for specialty gases is also huge.
Optical fiber communication and optical fiber transmission, as well as solar cells and LEDs, are also industries encouraged by the state. China's fiber optic cable production accounts for more than half of the world's total. China's solar cell production accounts for 40% of the world's total. China's LED chip production accounts for more than 40% of the world's total. These industries have a large variety of electronic special gas, and the number is large. Specialty gases provide a broad market space.
2. High-end equipment and new material manufacturing
At a time when global industry enters the era of 4.0, large-scale aircraft, high-speed rail transit, large-scale equipment, nuclear power plants, industrial robots, nanomaterials, graphene, new energy, and biomaterials are all inseparable from the demand for industrial gases. The laser processing is required for precision machining. The welding of new materials for high-speed trains requires a large amount of welding gas mixture. Nuclear power plants require a large amount of hydrogen, oxygen, sulfur hexafluoride, etc. Graphene and other high-purity hydrocarbon gases are required as raw materials. A large amount of rare gas is required as a plasma propellant, and the study of dark matter is inseparable from gases. In addition, during the “Thirteenth Five-Year Plan” period, China will enter the stage of rapid development of urban rail transit construction. In 2020, the planned mileage will exceed 10,000 kilometers. A large amount of welding gas and fire-fighting gas will be needed during the construction process. Thanks to the development of high-end equipment and new materials market space, the market space of special gas industry has gradually expanded.
3. Chemicals and new energy
Chemicals and new energy fields represented by LNG (liquefied natural gas) and H2 (hydrogen) are in great demand for standard gases, high-purity gases and gas equipment. Therefore, the scale of chemical and new energy industries will directly affect the specialty gas industry. And the development of the gas equipment industry. In the field of chemical and new energy, due to the large variety of chemical products and multiple reactions, the growth of the chemical industry, especially the basic chemical raw material manufacturing industry, will significantly increase the production of upstream specialty gas.
4. Health care industry
According to the "Analysis of the Economic Operation of the Pharmaceutical Industry in 2014" published by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the added value of the pharmaceutical industry above designated size increased by 12.5% ??in 2014, accounting for a year-on-year increase in the proportion of the national economy. Medical special gases play a huge role in the treatment or rehabilitation. These special gases include medical oxygen, blood gas mixture, lung function test mixture, nitric oxide standard gas, excimer laser gas, sterilization gas, medical anesthesia. Gas and so on. With the continuous development of China's medical and health undertakings, the demand for medical special gases will further increase.
