Lactic Acid and Polylactic Acid (PLA) Industry in China, 2011-2020: Ken Research

As a kind of important organic acid, lactic acid is widely used in such industries as food, beverage, brewing, fragrance & flavor, medicine, leather, tobacco and chemical engineering. With the expanding application fields of lactic acid and its derivatives and the increasing consumption, demand for lactic acid also keeps increasing in China. In particular, the fast-growing beer uses lactic acid as the pH modulator. Moreover, the demand for lactic acid continues to increase in food and beverage industry.
China Lactic Acid and Polylactic Acid Market Research
The global lactic acid is mainly produced in the U.S., West Europe, Japan, China, etc. The fermentation method is adopted in most manufacturers. The production capacity of lactic acid is concentrated in North America, Asia and Europe. Lactic acid is widely used in many fields. In recent years, with the extremely insufficient resources and more concerns for environmental protection, the degradable polylactic acid (PLA) made from lactic acid is more widely applied.
In Chinese lactic acid industry, only 10 enterprises, such as Henan Jindan Lacitc Acid Technology Co., Ltd. and COFCO Biochemical (Anhui) Co., Ltd. can reach annual production capacity of tens of thousands of tons. Most enterprises are small-sized with annual production capacity of hundreds to thousands of tons. Many enterprises in China issued the proposed projects or expansion plans. It is expected that the annual production capacity and output volume will rapidly increase.
A sound industry chain system is formed in Chinese lactic acid industry. In terms of the constitution of upstream and downstream industries, lactic acid manufacturing industry is the extension of raw material industry, which partly realizes the development from raw materials to high-end industry chain.
In China, the major upstream raw material of lactic acid is corn starch, and the downstream includes food and beverage, medicine, chemical engineering, cosmetics and electronics industry. With the largest consumption of lactic acid, the food and beverages enjoys the annual growth rate of above 10%. The application in other industries includes leather manufacture, micro electronics, electroplating and PLA production. The output volume of China's lactic acid exceeded more than 180,000 tons in 2015.
China's PLA production capacity is gradually increasing. Major manufacturers include Zhejiang Hisun Biomaterials Co., Ltd., Nantong Jiuding Biological Engineering Co., Ltd., etc. It is predicted that the consumption of lactic acid for PLA production will increase in the next few years. The global production capacity of PLA is expected to increase from 200,000 tons in 2012 to 800,000 tons in 2020. However, it is estimated that the production capacity in Asia will reach 400,000 tons, accounting for nearly half of the global. Many Asian countries issue policies to support the development of various bio-based materials. In addition, Asia possesses a large number of agricultural raw materials, which will promote the development of PLA. However, there is still less demand for PLA in Asia, which indicates that most of its new production capacity will be exported.
Moreover, it is expected that the increase of downstream demand for polylactic acid will promote that of the lactic acid market in the future. The demand from food and beverage industry will also promote the increase of lactic acid. There will be a sharp increase of demand for lactic acid in food and beverage market of China and other emerging countries. Lactic acid will continue to serve as an additive in food and beverage industry and the raw material of PLA.

China Blood Product Industry, 2011-2016: Ken Research

Blood products made by segregating and purifying all kinds of proteins in the blood plasma consists of albumin, immunoglobulin, thrombinogen and other products. China's enterprises mainly produce 9 kinds of products in the first three categories. The high concentration rate of the global blood product market is embodied in the three companies of developed countries accounting for more than 80% of the global market. The current global blood market remains relatively stable, of which the emerging economy is the main motivation of growth. By the end of 2015, there were 33 blood product manufacturing enterprises certified by the government in China, but in fact, only 20 of them were in production. Since 2012, mergers and acquisitions are common in China's blood product industry. For example, Jiangxi Boya Bio-Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. acquired partial stock rights of Zhejiang Haikang Biologicals Co., Ltd. Beijing Tiantan Biological Products Co., Ltd. purchased Chengdu Rosen Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. Watson Biological Company acquired Hebei Docan Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. Shanghai RAAS Blood Products Co., Ltd. purchased Zhengzhou Banghe Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. China National Biotec Group acquired Guiyang Qianfeng Biological Products Co., Ltd. and Xi'an Huitian Blood Products Co., Ltd. Humanwell Healthcare Group Co., Ltd. purchased Wuhan Rui De Biological Products Co., Ltd.
China Blood Product Industry
In 2015, 8,000 tons of blood plasma was needed to meet the demand of Chinese market, and the actual supply was only 5,000 tons. For example, the demand for blood products of about 1.4 billion population of China should be 12,000 tons calculated according to per capita demand of the normal blood products of the World Health Organization, which is far more than the actual supply of China. In China's blood product industry, the scale of the blood plasma has been the main bottleneck restricting the development of blood product industry. The quality and quantity of plasma stations are of vital importance. In 2001, Chinese government announced that no new blood product manufacturing enterprises would be approved to ensure the safety of blood and its products, and block the spread of HIV through collection and supply of blood . In 2008, Chinese government formulated the regulations that the plasma collection regions should guarantee the quantity of the plasma donors, which can satisfy no less than 30 tons' collection of source plasma. In 2011, Guizhou government announced the program of adjusting the settings of blood services. The plasma collection stations decreased from 20 to 4, of which Hualan Biological Engineering Co., Ltd., the blood product giant, suffered the most. The plasma stations of Guizhou Province decreased from 6 to 1, having reduced half of the corporate source plasma supply. Lack of the local blood products, but Chinese government has issued strict regulations on the import of blood products. Only human serum albumin and three kinds of thrombinogen are allowed to be imported. In recent years, the competitiveness of China's blood product market has been mainly determined by the amount of blood plasma resources. Under the tense condition of source plasma supply, blood product manufacturing enterprises will obtain more space for survival and development with more blood plasma stations and source plasma. On June 1, 2015, China National Development and Reform Commission released the highest price limit on blood products, and companies can name their own prices. In the first quarter of 2016, the price of fibrinogen and tetanus immunoglobulin in Chinese market increases by 80%-130%, and the price of intravenous gammaglobulin increases by 10%-20%. In addition to the relaxed price regulations, another support policy is to gradually release the auditing of plasma collection stations. At the beginning of 2013, Chinese government released the auditing standards for plasma collection stations. By the end of 2013, there had been no more than 160 plasma collection stations in China.

Research Report on China Cold Chain Logistics Industry, 2016-2020: Ken Research

Cold chain is an uninterrupted series of harvest, processing, packaging, storage, transport and sale activities which maintain a given temperature range. It is used to help extend and ensure the shelf life of perishable products. In China, vegetables and fruits are easy to perish during transport and in transient storage, which increases the operating cost of fresh food retailers like supermarkets and stores. But if they were in a good cold chain system, their shelf life and marketable time could be lengthened or even doubled.
China Cold Chain Logistics Market
If the shelf life of perishable products like vegetables and fruits was extended from one day to three days, fresh food retailers' loss would decrease 30%-50%. Food decaying is the main reason for food safety risks and resources waste. And the close attention paid to food safety has driven a sharp pick up in cold chain market for foods represented by meat, fruit, vegetable, seafood and dairy product. With the increasing per capita income and improvements in living conditions, Chinese people put a high demand for food freshness. Therefore, the demand for cold chain transport of vegetables, fruits, meats and processed products has increased remarkably. In 2015, meat production in China exceeded 80 million tons, vegetable 700 million tons, fruit 260 million tons, dairy products 27 million tons and seafood 60 million tons. Besides, large amounts of meat and frozen food are produced every year in China too. Temperature fluctuation in cold storage and transport is one of the main reasons for food quality decline. To ensure those perishable foods' freshness and quality, cold chain logistics is needed. By the end of 2014, China had a freezer capacity of about 120 million cubic meters and less than 60, 00 refrigerator vehicles, lagging far behind developed countries in per capital terms. As a high-end sub-industry of logistics, cold chain logistics will become the focus of many investors in the next few years. As e-business develops in China, e-business enterprises operating fresh food are springing up and the supporting cold chain infrastructure. Many e-business companies in China have got into the field of fresh food, for example, large e-business enterprises like Tmall and JD have published their own fresh food strategy. Besides, logistics enterprises like SF Best of SF Express are conducting e-business and a bunch of professional fresh food e-business enterprises like Too Too Organic Farm are developing fast too. According to CRI's estimation, the market size of fresh food e-business was about CNY 100-120 billion and CAGR during the period of 2016-2020 will exceed 50%. Fresh food e-business companies hardly invest cold chain equipment but they indirectly force the construction of cold chain distribution network. Currently, e-business enterprises like JD and Tmall are still weak in cold chain warehouse, logistics delivery system and door to door delivery in particular for they mainly cooperate with a third party, i.e. a cold chain logistics company. Cold chain logistics network could be divided into two parts: cold chain home delivery and cold chain artery, the former belonging to express and less-than-carload logistics while the latter involving supply chain management and third party logistics. And cold chain logistics is the sub-industry of logistics with the largest potential market despite its complex operation and high barrier to entry. Cold chain logistics will be one of the hottest sub-industries of logistics in China in the next few years if the demand for cold chain and its development space in China were taken into account. With the sustained economic development, fast increase in demand for food, drugs and cosmetics, cold chain logistics industry in China will undergo a rapid growth. Therefore, there are many investment opportunities in China for cold chain equipment manufacturers and cold chain logistics enterprises. Readers can get at least the following information through this report: development environment facing cold chain logistics in China supply and demand status of cold chain logistics in China industrial chain of cold chain logistics in China major cold chain logistics equipment manufacturers in China cold chain e-business enterprises in China prospects of cold chain logistics in China investment opportunity in cold chain logistics industry in China The author suggests the following groups of people purchase this report: logistics enterprises cold chain logistics equipment manufacturers e-business companies investors/ research institutions interested in cold chain logistics industry.

Skin Care Product Manufacturing Industry Overview in China, 2016-2020: Ken Research

Skin care products, also known as cosmetics, are generic names of make-ups protecting the skin. They protect the skin from external harm such as chemical substances and metal ions together with excessive moisture loss. Meanwhile, they can promote the blood circulation and metabolism.
Skin care products can be divided into types of skin cleaning, caring and treatment by production process and form targeted ones of daytime and nighttime by time period, and specified ones for ladies, gentlemen and children by user. They can also be classified by function. Another classification refers to professional (mainly sold in the beauty salon) and daily skin care products (mainly sold through common channels) by way of sales.
China Skin Care Products Market
According to CRI, the skin care product market in China is the leading emerging one in the globe for the economy and population. The sales value of skin care products increased from over CNY 90 billion in 2011 to CNY 130 billion in 2015 with the CAGR of about 9.1% exceeding the growth rate of GDP during the corresponding period.
The consumption value of skin care products per capita increases yearly in China. First, the consumption ability and willingness are enhanced with the attention to health, beauty and material life. Second, the overall expenses of consumers increase with abundant varieties and functions of skin care products in China. However, the sales of skin care products are stimulated by various sales promotions on online platforms with the development of the e-commerce industry.
Skin care products are large in number and intense in competition. According to CRI, the aggregate market share of top 5 skin care product manufacturers was less than 24% in 2015, which indicates the stage of free competition of this industry. However, barriers to entry in the skin care product market remain high for new enterprises and brands. It is mainly because the maturity and stability of sales channels are of great importance for enterprises of such fast moving consumer goods. Barriers are higher for skin care products to entry in retail terminals such as department stores, hypermarkets, supermarkets and franchise stores due to the intense competition. Large-scale supermarkets and hypermarkets particularly charge higher entry fees and other selling expenses in accordance with the scale, coverage and influence. New brands cannot cover costs without certain sales volume as supporting. Generally speaking, new enterprises of skin care products need large pre-investment in sales channels, funds, construction period and it is difficult to form channel advantages within a short period.
On the one hand, domestic skin care products face challenges from international famous brands with the economic globalization. On the other hand, this impact also promotes the integration, upgrading and technologies of domestic skin care product industry.
According to CRI, major consumers of the skin care product market include children, males in addition to young ladies in China. Meanwhile, the pursuit for health and returning to nature become a trend with the upgrading of the industry structure. The mainstream of skin care product developing transfers to new raw materials such as biologic preparation, bioactivity extractives and plant extracts. The market size of the skin care product manufacturing industry is expected to remain an annual growth rate of above 8% and exceed that of GDP in the next few years.
