The growing demand for recordable media — as well as disc piracy — will play a key role in increasing China’s polycarbonate market by 10.4 per cent per year, according to updated forecasts from Singapore’s Plastics and Chemicals Intelligence Asia, and Japan’s Techno Information Centre.

Overall polycarbonate demand in China and Hong Kong is expected to reach 530,000 tonnes by 2008, with optical media accounting for the fastest-growing market, at an increase of 16.7 per cent per year.

China’s increased notebook computer, liquid crystal display and TV production is expected to offset slower growth in the electrical/electronic and office automation equipment sector.
