The CCPIA disclosed that related government departments are actively studying a change in the export tax rebate on pesticide formulations. Industry insiders predict that this will give China's pesticide business a boost.
Given the importance of pesticide exports, and Weifang Rainbow's rising advantage in export markets, more and more domestic pesticide companies may learn from Weifang Rainbow's operational mode that's boosting its exports.
China's glufosinate-ammonium market is now in rapid development, with increasing manufacturers expanding their production capacities to capture larger sales. In this context, market competition is expected to further intensify in the coming period.
The best selling herbicides in China in 201 6 included 11 products from 11 companies. Thereinto, Dow AgroSciences (China) LLC's Daojie, and YongNong BioSciences Co., Ltd.'s Baisudun were in the list.
The best selling pesticides in China in 201 6 included 9 products from 9 companies. Jiangsu Luye Agrochemicals Co., Ltd.'s Shenghua, Jiangmen Plant Protection Co., Ltd.'s Jiashoumi, and Langfang Pesticide Medium-sized Refinery Factory, IPP, CAAS's Atailing were in the list.
Reportedly, the main part of Sino-Agri Union's 2,000 t/a dicamba TC project has been finished, and the company will accelerate the construction next to put it into operation as soon as possible. In this way, it can enrich its technical product varieties and boost financial performance.
Jiangsu Huifeng may put its 5,000 t/a glufosinate-ammonium TC project into operation on 1 Sept., 2017, which may further consolidate its position in the market, and boost its performance.
The total sales of top 100 pesticide enterprises increased by nearly 6% YoY, despite last year was a "cold winter" for pesticide industry.
In 2016, Shandong Luba witnessed YoY drops in both revenue and net profit, mainly because of the falling price of paraquat and pyridine.
The 2017 Rotterdam Convention failed to agree on the inclusion of paraquat into its Annex III once again, meaning concerns over export restrictions on it were settled. Given this, paraquat is still expected to enjoy promising prospects in overseas markets.
In 2016, China's export volume of atrazine witnessed a YoY rise, but export price suffered a YoY decline.
In April 2017, China had 26 new herbicide TC registrations, which included 19 active ingredients.
The new Regulations on Pesticide Administration in China is to come into effect on 1 June, 2017. In particular, the amendments to pesticide registration have drawn much attention from the industry.
In May 2017, the MOC decided to approve the merger of Dow and DuPont, but asked them to divest some businesses as a precondition of the approval.
