Chinese Companies Aim To Be The Largest Supplier Globally In Specialty Gases


03/20/2018




It has been over a decade that China has been a top importer of specialty gas. But now China itself is set to become an exporter and to turn out as a producer than a consumer given the growing capacity that it has created for itself with respect to various specialty gases.
 
"China's integrated circuit manufacturing industry was heavily dependent on imports abroad. We are doing everything we can to make our own specialty gases over the years," said Guo Jianzeng, the vice director of the 718th research institute of China Shipbuilding Heavy Industry Corporation.
 
Specialty gases are made use of in industries like pharmaceuticals and electronics and are rare or ultra-high purity gases. These gases help such industries to reduce their costs, enhance output and maximize performance.
 
high purity NF3 and WF6 gases have bene developed and created successfully by the 718th research institute through research and development process that had been conducted by the firm for years. These two gases are critical components for the manufacturing of liquid crystal and for as production elements for semiconductors.
 
"Our product specifications have reached the international level, not only breaking up the monopoly of foreign companies, but giving China an edge in specialty gas production," Guo said.
 
NF3 and WF6 specialty gases have already been supplied to almost every company that manufactures semiconductors and almost all of the manufacturers of liquid crystal in China according to a report published by the 718th research institute. The firm has also already been exporting the gases to other countries such as Japan, Singapore, the United States and a number of other European countries. This has helped the company to hold a market share of about 50 per cent inn the supplying of the specialty gases internationally in 2017.
 
"With the addition of high-purity gases, calibration gases and ultra-high-purity gases for the electronics segment, the 718th research institute will also be capable of producing complex mixtures for research laboratories and emission testing centers," Guo said.
 
In the next five years, the fastest growing specialty gas market in the world is slated to be the Asia -Pacific region and tat market would be dominated by China in terms of both production and demand according to a report by MarketsandMarkets, a global market research and consulting company.
 
The 718th research institute has aimed to become the largest producer of four specialty gases including NF3 and WF6 by the year 2020 and it also intends to have the largest global market share in them in the same period and for this purpose, the firm is already in the process of upgrading its production lines for the specialty gases.
