Yuan Lei small classroom, China's kaolin industry four development trends.

 

In recent years, my country's kaolin industry has fierce competition and accelerated industrial integration. At the same time, the external policy situation such as environmental protection and green mine construction has become increasingly severe. The domestic kaolin industry will show the following four major development trends:

 

 

Trend 1: High-quality resources are scarce and industry integration is accelerated.

 

 

 

 

China is rich in kaolin reserves, but there are few high-quality mines. There are only a few enterprises in China that can stably supply high-quality kaolin. At the same time, the high-quality kaolin mines in some areas have been nearly exhausted. For example, the kaolin in Gaoling Village of Jingdezhen has been exhausted, and the kaolin production in Shahe area of Hebei Province has dropped sharply in recent years. In recent years, although the total amount of newly proven kaolinite ore is large, the overall grade is lower. For example, in recent years, the proven reserves of Guangxi Hepu kaolin, mineral iron, titanium and other dyeing impurities content is generally high, from the better mining section of kaolin is only low-grade products.

 

Under the background of increasingly scarce high-quality kaolin resources, mining enterprises are accelerating the integration of resource mergers and acquisitions.on the one hand,Small mining enterprises are relatively backward in production technology and have few resource reserves,Product quality is less stable and will gradually be marginalized in the future competition process. on the other hand,In recent years, local governments have been increasing their supervision of kaolin mining.Since April 2016, the central government has sent inspection teams to various places to carry out environmental protection inspections. Unlicensed mines have been shut down one after another. The revenue scale of small mining areas is generally small, and environmental protection investment is insufficient, facing the fate of being shut down and consolidated. After years of development, some leading enterprises with technical and management advantages in the kaolin industry have the ability to operate across regions and develop on a large scale, and have begun to try cross-regional mergers and acquisitions. In the future, the integration speed of the kaolin industry will continue to accelerate.

 


Trend two: deep processing technology to flourish


 

 

With the deepening of research on kaolin and the development of the demand structure of downstream industries to the middle and high end,The market demand for high-quality kaolin is growing faster than the overall market growth,This exacerbates the structural contradiction between supply and demand in China's kaolin market.

 

In order to adapt to the development trend of kaolin industry and combine the characteristics of China's kaolin resource endowment, China's advantageous kaolin enterprises continue to carry out the research and industrial application of deep processing technology such as iron removal, grinding and stripping, ore blending, etc., to improve the whiteness, fineness, plasticity and other physical and chemical indicators of kaolin mineral products, and improve the stability of product quality.

 

At the same time, with the in-depth study of kaolin, the application field of kaolin continues to expand, and it has begun to be used in chemical catalysts, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, aerospace materials and other fields. On the whole,The change of downstream demand structure and the expansion of application fields will expand the demand for kaolin and promote the development of China's kaolin products to medium and high grade.

 


Trend three: the construction of green mines to improve the requirements


 

 

For a long time, the production mode of kaolin production enterprises in China is relatively extensive, and the production process has caused serious damage to the mining area and the surrounding environment.In recent years, the Chinese government has higher and higher requirements for the green development of mines, and has more and more strict regulations on the mining, beneficiation, smelting and greening of mines,Under the guidance of the idea that "green water and green mountains are golden mountains and silver mountains", the environmental protection requirements for kaolin mining and mineral processing will be higher and higher in the future.

 

The National Mineral Resources Plan (2016-2020) clearly states that the large-scale development of fluorite, boron, kaolin, talc, barite, wollastonite and other minerals, green development and the combined development of upstream and downstream industries are encouraged, and mining enterprises are required to adopt scientific mining methods and beneficiation techniques to reduce the production and storage of mining solid wastes such as gangue and waste rock.

 

 


Trend four: industry leading enterprises actively extend the industrial chain


 

 

China's kaolin industry is entering the integration stage, such as in more and more daily ceramic manufacturers began to purchase porcelain clay trend,Kaolin enterprises with high-quality resources are actively exploring the vertical extension to the porcelain clay industry,Ceramic kaolin enterprises have a wealth of ceramic customer resources, porcelain clay products are also the main sales target of ceramic enterprises,Kaolin enterprises to enter the porcelain mud industry has obvious advantages in customer resources.

 

 

Kaolin has a wide range of uses, the application range of kaolin produced in different mining areas varies greatly, and kaolin enterprises with management advantages begin to produce kaolin products across application areas.With the continuous integration of the kaolin industry, leading companies in the industry are expected to become bigger and stronger with their own resource endowments and technological advantages.

Barium sulfate is based on barite as the main raw material, through beneficiation, ore washing, crushing and other processes. Barium sulfate has a hardness of 3~3.5 (Mohs) and a specific gravity of 4.3~4.7. It has the characteristics of high specific gravity, low hardness and brittleness. Barite is almost insoluble in water, ethanol and acid, soluble in hot concentrated sulfuric acid. With the development of some high-performance barium sulfate products, the application field of barium sulfate is constantly expanding.
