Paraformaldehyde (abbreviated as PF) industry in China is still at its growing stage, though it has witnessed a fast development in the past few years. There are two main PF production methods, namely rake drying method and spray drying method, and most producers in China adopt rake drying method, which, lags behind spray drying method in technology.

Domestic PF production is mainly distributed in Hebei, Jiangsu, and Shandong, relying on abundant supply of methanol and convenient transportation. The number of PF producers in China decreased from 35 in 2017 to 28 in 2018 and 26 in 2019.
