Agricultural Pesticides in China

As Quoted In China Chemical Reporter

Demand in China will benefit from increases in agricultural production of sown land, and ongoing gains in the production of pesticides-intensive crops such as fruits and vegetables.

Pesticide demand in China to grow 5.3% annually through 2015

Demand for formulated pesticides in the agricultural market in China is forecast to rise 5.3 percent per annum to 2.3 million metric tons in 2015. In value terms, formulated pesticide demand is expected to rise 7.1 percent per year to 60 billion yuan. Market gains will be driven primarily by increases in agricultural production as measured by the total area of sown land, and ongoing expansions in the production of fruits and vegetables, which are by far the most intensive users of pesticides relative to most other crops.

Farmers will continue to see steadily increasing income, the result of rising crop prices and government subsidies designed to supplement their revenues and reduce their material costs. Subsidies aimed directly at cutting the cost of pesticides will encourage additional use. Furthermore, increased pesticide usage has become more feasible from an investment standpoint, as use of additional pesticides can greatly boost crop yield, which in turn bolsters farmers’ income. The improved revenues attributable to higher crop prices more than compensate for the cost of the pesticides.

Pesticide active ingredient sales will advance 4.8 percent annually through 2015 to 765,000 metric tons. By weight, active ingredients comprised 26 percent of formulated pesticide shipments in 2010. Growth will be heightened mainly by greater exports of pesticide active ingredients, while increased domestic production of formulated pesticides will further stimulate demand.

Insecticides to remain largest market, fungicides to grow fastest

Insecticides will remain the largest product type through 2015 despite a relatively slow growth rate of 3.7 percent per year. Established products will continue to dominate the market going forward while the trend toward using less-toxic insecticides will contribute to the slow rate of growth. Herbicides will see strong growth in both shipments and demand through 2015, driven by a decrease in farming manpower and growth in export markets. Fungicides will post the fastest growth as farmers contend with resilient fungal problems.

Northwest to be fastest growing regional market

The size, growth and composition of pesticide demand in China’s six regions vary considerably. The Central-East and Central-South will remain the two largest regional pesticide markets, together accounting for 70 percent of total demand in 2015. Demand in these regions will be driven by increasing output of high value crops. Growth in sales of pesticides in the Northwest will outpace that of other regions through 2015, benefiting from the Great Western Development Strategy.

Study Scope

This study analyzes the 1.8 million metric ton agricultural pesticides industry in China, with forecasts for 2015 and 2020 for formulated pesticides and pesticide active ingredients by type (e.g., insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, plant growth regulators, rodenticides, biopesticides), class, crop and geographic region.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 32 industry participants, including Jiangsu Kwin Group, Shenzhen Noposion Agrochemicals, and Syngenta.
