China owns the largest capacity and output of yellow phosphorus in the world. However, overcapacity has emerged as an eminent problem in Chinese yellow phosphorus industry in recent years. For example, China's yellow phosphorus capacity is about 2,335,000t/a in 2012, almost three times higher than the domestic demand, which is only about 800,000-900,000 tonnes every year. That suggests a very low operating rate of China's yellow phosphorus industry. What are reasons for the low operating rate, or why Chinese yellow phosphorus producers expand their capacity to such a large scale? 

The export volume of yellow phosphorus began to decline from 2008. However, due to the weakening overseas demand, the total export volume in 2011 and 2012 decreased continuously. In the long term, the decline in the export volume of yellow phosphorus may prompt Chinese yellow phosphorus enterprises to shift to high value-added products, which is very beneficial for upgrading and development of China's yellow phosphorus industry.

In the past, most yellow phosphorus was consumed by thermal phosphoric acid and phosphorus trichloride in China. However, the consumption structure of yellow phosphorus is changing every year. The yellow phosphorus consumption by thermal phosphoric acid has been shrinking by consumption share in recent years, while the share of yellow phosphorus in phosphorus trichloride has been increasing. What other changes have taken place to Chinese yellow phosphorus consumption and what have driven such changes to happen? 

It is estimated that it will take 30 years to exploit the remaining yellow phosphorus in China, so China is adjusting industrial structure of yellow phosphorus for saving phosphorus resource. What's the influence on resource supply, manufacturers, capacity and output of Chinese yellow phosphorus caused by adjusting industrial structure? What is the trend of resource tax levied on phosphorus ore?
