1. The main origin of mica and its market share in China

Mica mines are widely found in Asia, Africa and the America, but rarely in Europe. Until the 19th century, the value of mica in Europe was still very high. As the colonists mined mica in Africa and South America, prices fell rapidly. At present, the world’s major mica producers are India, Madagascar, Nigeria, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Sudan and other countries, and India accounts for more than 80% of the world’s mica production. According to relevant statistics, from 2012 to 2015, China’s total import mica volume was 369,000 tons, of which India accounted for 319,000 tons, accounting for 86% of total imports. Madagascar has 39,000 tons, accounting for about 11% of total imports, and the rest accounts for about 3%.

2. The domestic market demand

Mica is widely used in the modern electronic and electrical industry due to its unique high temperature resistance, insulation and stable chemical properties. The demand for mica has increased year by year. Due to comprehensive factors such as environmental protection and mining costs, the main mica suppliers in Xinjiang, Inner Mongolia, Sichuan, Henan, Yunnan and other mines are basically in a state of stop mining. Domestic mica is mainly imported. From 2012 to November 2015, China’s imported mica grew at an average rate of about 10% per year.

3. The price trend of mica raw material market

Mica is a valuable mineral resource that is generally mined along with other mineral resources. As the market demand continues to expand, the investment in mica mining is also increasing, and the efficiency is getting higher and higher. At the same time, global Internet information has led to that some mica resources that have not been utilized along with other mining products have been discovered. Therefore, the price of mica has not changed much in recent years. With the global economic slowdown, prices have declined slightly.

4. Mica application

Domestically imported mica products mainly contain mica paper and mica powder, and the amount of mica used for industrial sheet raw materials is very small, about 200 tons per year. In 2015, mica raw materials for mica papermaking accounted for about 60%, and mica powder processing was about 40%. Domestic mica paper is mainly distributed in Hunan, Hubei and Guangdong. Yunqi mica paper and national mica paper production line are about 90. Hunan, Hubei and Guangdong account for more than 80% of the national mica paper production.
