Kong Lingfang, CCFGroup, presented her report of Development status of differential PSF market 

The speech is divided into five parts: 
First, direct-spun PSF capacity development. After two rounds of capacity expansion, since 2018, direct-spun PSF is to see a third round of expansion tide, and this round highlights differential PSF. Low melting, bright 1.2D and spunlace use PSF new capacity accounts for 43% of new expansion in 2018. 

Secondly, low-melting PSF developing status. Before 2015, China's low-melting PSF outpaced imported ones by superior cost performance. During 2016-2017, capacity expansion stagnated. In 2018, low-melting PSF capacity is expected to increase markedly by 300kt. 

Thirdly, spunlace PSF developing status. In 2018, China is expected to add more than 20 production lines of spunlace non-woven fabric, with an additional capacity of about 100kt. 

Fourth, bright PSF 1.2D developing status. Since the second half of 2016, the cash flow has started to increase and expanded to more than 2,000yuan/mt after 2017. New capacities of bright PSF 1.2D in 2018 is expected to reach 250kts and the total capacities will reach 944kta. 

Fifth, ES fiber brief. By end 2016, domestic ES fiber capacity totaled 320kt/year. ES fiber capacities are highly concentrated, with the share of Zhejiang, Jiangsu and Shanghai up to around 95%. Others are some small plants in Guangdong and Fujian. ES fiber is mainly used in producing hot-air non-woven fabric. Currently, major producers of hot-air nonwoven are mainly in Fujian, Zhejiang, Guangdong and Jiangsu, with the capacity sharing up to 92% of domestic total capacity. ES fiber has more growth potential in baby diapers and adult incontinence products.
