By August 4, 2021, there are only about 10 calcium chloride manufacturers in mainland China, including calcium chloride dihydrate and calcium chloride anhydrous. Before the environmental protection storm in 2018, hundreds of calcium chloride factories, large and small, gathered in The Weifang area of Shandong province alone. After 2018, only one calcium chloride factory in The Weifang area was retained, and the rest were all banned. Shandong, currently only haihua, Luxi, Mingchuan three calcium chloride manufacturers, which luxi Mingchuan product quality can only be compared with the basic requirements of the industrial use, slightly higher requirements can only choose Marine products. Across the country, only haihua, Jingshen, Xindu and Xingfa manufacturers can produce high-quality calcium chloride. The products of the rest of the factories are either gray in color, or the content of aqueous insoluble substance exceeds the standard. Since this year, the shortage of anhydrous calcium chloride in the country, resulting in a sharp rise in the price of more than 50%
Calcium chloride industry, especially anhydrous calcium chloride industry is close to the formation of oligopoly situation. In the short term, if no new manufacturers enter the industry, it will be extremely easy to form a price alliance. A 50 per cent rise in a short period like this one could easily be repeated. According to my judgment, in the future calcium chloride industry, there will be a situation of several large factories plus a number of dealers with storage capacity. Dealers without storage capacity will be in a very passive position.
