Summary

Table of Contents

China’s pesticide industry has weathered the rough time of “overcapacity, market downturn, weak demand, price decline, stringent environmental policies, and fierce competition” over the past two years. Due to a greater pressure from safety production and environmental protection, rising costs, tepid domestic and foreign demands, and prohibition of and restrictions on highly toxic pesticides, the industry has been running with lower product prices. Overall, the pesticide enterprises now make meager profits or barely break even.

China produced 3.741 million tons and sold 3.495 million tons of chemical pesticide APIs in 2015, edging down 0.1% and 2.2% from a year ago, respectively. In addition, output of pesticide preparations represented by herbicides, insecticides, and bactericides all fell over the same period in 2014, standing at 1.774 million tons, 514,000 tons, and 182,000 tons, down 1.6%,8.5%and 20.8% respectively against the previous year.

Jiangsuis the country’s largest pesticide production base, not only the largest API producing region but also a major production region of herbicides, insecticides, and bactericides. The province produced 1.055 million tons of pesticide APIs, 419,000 tons of herbicides, 205,000 tons of insecticides, and 91,000 tons of bactericides in 2015, making up 28.2%, 23.6%,39.8%, and 49.7% of the country’s total, respectively.

The Action Program for Zero Growth of Pesticide Utilization by 2020 issued by the MoA in 2015 specifies that pesticide utilization will be effectively controlled and new pesticides vigorously promoted so as to reduce consumption and harm of pesticides.The country’s pesticide production and sales will maintain slight growth over a period of time, with chemical pesticide APIs reaching an estimated 3.768 million tons in production and 3.628 million tons in sales in 2020, respectively.

There are about 1,800 pesticide producers in China, represented by Nanjing Red Sun, Jiangsu Yangnong Chemical, Zhejiang Xinan Chemical Industrial Group, Shenzhen Noposion Agrochemicals, and Jiangsu Huifeng Agrochemical. The country’s No. 1 pesticide enterprise hasless than a 2 percent market share, showing a very low market concentration. As a series of measures on closing down backward production facilities and encouraging corporate merger and restructuring are implemented, the Chinese pesticide market concentration is expected to improve gradually.

With introduction of support policies including new environmental policy and the Planning for the Development of Pesticide Industry during the 13th Five-Year Plan Period,a quick penetration of new formats like agricultural inputs E-commerce and “Internet + agriculture”, and rapid development of new models (farmers’ cooperative, crop solutions), the pesticide industry will see an accelerated elimination of backward capacity, constantly enhanced industrial transformation and upgrading, and an increased industry concentration.
