Long- term forecasts for major Linear Alkylbenzene production and demand are included. The report contains over 21 tables and 31 charts. Key Linear Alkylbenzene producers and major Linear Alkylbenzene end user are listed and profiled. Most primary and secondary research is done in China in order to access up-to-date market information and industry data. Data was collected from the telephone interview, Chinese government publications, Chinese official website, China’s official statistic organization, Chinese chemical online databases, Chinese Linear Alkylbenzene industry associations, and Linear Alkylbenzene industry publications. Interviews are conducted with Chinese Linear Alkylbenzene experts, university professors, and producers of Linear Alkylbenzene in China. © Copyright 2008 AMID Co.

Executive Summary The Chinese economy maintains a high speed growth which has been stimulated by the consecutive increases of industrial output, import & export, consumer consumption and capital investment. Since its Opening-up and Reform, China becomes the 6th economic entity in the world with GNP breaking RMB 20 trillion Yuan. In recent years, under the background of global economy recession, China remains an average growth rate around 9%, remaining one of the countries with the fastest economy growth. China's economy development has its unique characteristics. First of all, under the obvious slowdown of global economy, China realizes the rapid growth of economy by sticking to the policy of © Copyright 2008 AMID Co. Page 2 Chapter I INTRODUCTION expanding domestic demand and firmly implementing proactive fiscal policy and moderate monetary policy. Secondly, economic structure adjustment obtains positive progress. The agriculture structure has been optimized and high quality and special farm products have been increased. High-tech industries such as information and biology industry have developed rapidly. The reconstruction of traditional industries and the capacity of eliminating backward production have obtained comparatively great headway. Infrastructure construction has made remarkable achievement in completing a set of key projects including highway, railway, interstate road, key water control project and rural electricity network reconstruction. Western development is launched smoothly and import ant project s such as Qinghai- Tibet railway and transmission of electricity from the western to the eastern region has started. Thirdly, the quality and efficiency of economic growth have been further improved. Industrial enterprises output value increase constantly. With the great increase in the taxation, national fiscal revenue realized two digital growths. Fourthly, the foreign economic & trades have been further expanded. The total volume of import and export has broken US$2.264 trillion, of which export volume mounts to US$1.183 trillion and import volume mounts to US$928 billion, up 31.1% and 3
