Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Production and Market of Alpha and Beta-Pinene in China" report to their offering.

As the main component of turpentine, alpha-pinene (a-pinene) and beta-pinene (ß-pinene) are also important forest chemicals in China.

Since a large amount of pinene is exported annually in recent years, the global economy situation is very important for pinene industry. After global financial crisis in 2008, global economy recovers difficultly, though China takes the lead in economic recovery around the world, with the implementation of massive stimulus package. However, the negative effects of massive stimulus package have appeared since 2010, such as debt crisis, high inflation rate. How much does this affect China's pinene industry in recent three years? CCM will figure out it in this report.

In 2011, thanks to the great demand from domestic and overseas markets, the pinene production still keeps an uptrend in China. But the price of pinene has changed a lot. In this pinene report, CCM will tell you the details of the changes in the past years and the changing trend in the next five to ten years.

China is still a very important supplier of pinene for the world, and a large quantity of pinene is exported annually while little pinene is imported. In this report, the detailed export situation of pinene (a-pinene and ß-pinene) in 2010 and 2011 and general information about pinene export before 2009 and Jan-July 2012 will be analyzed.

In China, a-pinene is mainly applied in dihydromyrcene/dihydromyrcenol, synthetic camphor, synthetic borneol and all kinds of synthetic perfume. ß-pinene is mainly applied in synthesized flavors and polymerized terpene resin.
