Glyphosate

  1. Looking at the policy in China, Nov. 15, 2017 to Mar. 15, 2018 is the traditional heating season, so it has big possibility that the suppliers of Glycine will be forced to limit production, which will give support on Glyphosate price.
  2. Looking at present market, the transaction is slack. The buyers are mainly taking “wait-and-see” attitude on current high-level price. The operating rate of local Glyphosate manufacturers maintains in relatively high.
  3. In short run, whether price further rising of Glyphosate will be basically depending on the official advisory of production limitation on Nov. 15, 2017.

Paraquat

  1. Price of Pyridine is stable.
  2. Seeing the operating rate, the mainstream factories are almost all suspending the production. The market demand exceeds the supply ability of manufacturers.  
  3. Affected by the impact from managing haze weather in winter, it’s difficult to receive many orders for the manufacturers who just resume the production.
  4. In the short term, price of Paraquat will maintain in high level or slight increase.

Diuron

  1. From the raw materials, price of 3,4-DCA is hard to decrease due to severe shortage, which supports the price of Diuron.
  2. The orders of major factories are fully arranged to February, 2018. The market supply is hard to improve substantially within short time.
  3. As for manufacturers, they have no pressures in selling, so it has no possibility for them to reduce price proactively.
  4. As far as we see, Diuron price will hopefully keep increasing further.

Chlorpyrifos

  1. Seeing from the supply of raw material, price of ethyl chloride and Sodium 3,5,6-trichloropyridin-2-olate still remain at high level, which gives the cost support to Chlorpyrifos. Recent days, the ethyl chloride factories in Hubei have plan to resume their production, this may promote Chlorpyrifos factories's rate of operation.
  2. Only few Chlorpyrifos factories who are running the production line, their production is not stable. Overall market supply were seriously affected.
  3. Currently, the price of Chlorpyrifos is hovering at high level. Customers keep an very caution attitude of purchasing.
  4. In the short term, price of Chlorpyrifos expects to remain at high position.

Glyphosate

  1. Seeing from the supply situation of raw material, glycine suppliers in Hebei, Shandong are facing the strong pressure of environmental inspection.  Especially in Shandong Province, the local factories which are under equipment maintenance are difficult to resume production in the short term, which giving the costs support for Glyphosate.
  2. The supply of Glyphosate cannot restore to the normal levels in a short term. The market stocks are at a reasonable level, which causes the promotion of suppliers is not so active, and some factories even stopped offering.
  3. RMB exchange rate against USD now is entering the appreciation period, which brings certain pressure to exporters.
  4. The new round of peak season begins in the coming September, the price of Glyphosate will maintain the upward trend in the short term.

Paraquat

  1. Price of Pyridine is stable.
  2. Seeing from the production situation, the mainstream factories are basically in equipment maintenance this month, and the market supply volume is declining.
  3. RMB appreciation has led to an increase in export costs. Paraquat price increased slightly compared to this before.
  4. In the short term, the price of Paraquat will remain stable; However, in the long run, it will not rule out the possibility that the price of Paraquat will rise up after entering the peak season in September.

Diuron

  1. The market supply has been declining in the near term and the delivery is becoming tense, orders have been arranged to late September due to the environmental protection and equipment maintenance of the major factories.

    Currently, the market demand of the Diuron is still good, and we think the price will rise in the short term.

Carbendazim

  1. Currently, price of raw material OPDA keeps stable
  2. Due to the adjustment of our export rebate for Carbendazim TC, our export cost is over 3% higher than before
  3. Our currency RMB keep upvaluation crazily. The exchange rate between RMB and USD is down from 6.90(mid-May) to 6.64(today), which made our export costs to be much higher.
  4. With the upcoming peak season of demand in September, price is expected to rise up further

Chlorpyrifos

  1. Market demand is flat, sales volume is hard to rise sharply.
  2. In terms of extremely high environmental pressure, manufacturers are difficult to run the production lines. The market maintains a low load operation and the market supply is hard to rise.
  3. As for the main raw material - ethyl chloride, due to environmental pressure, the supply is scarce and the price maintains at high position.

Imidacloprid

  1. There is no delivery pressure of Imidacloprid factories, who are mainly delivering previous orders. Some manufactures’ orders in hand are scheduled to October.
  2. The 4th round of central environmental protection inspection has been fully launched, and the market supply is expected to decline some.
  3. The price of the main raw material 2 - chloro-5-chloromethylpyridine rose, which gives support to the costs.
  4. In the short term, the market price of Imidacloprid will keep stable for a while, but it does not rule out the possibility of a rise.

Agrochemicals/Pesticides Marketing Information in China, Updated on Jan. 17th, 2017

Glyphosate

  1. This week, the market price of Glyphosate starts to slide down.
  2. Looking at the raw materials, with grey haze's gradually disappearing in North China, the mainstream manufacturers of Glycine(major material of Glyphosate) resume production step by step. The prices of raw materials are weakened, which leaves Glyphosate some room to the downtrend.  
  3. Looking at the present operating rate, the whole market supply of the 1st quarter of 2017 will be sufficient. This will put up resistance to the price increase.
  4. We predict the price will principally maintain a weak decline before Chinese Lunar New Year. 

Paraquat

  1. At present, almost all manufacturers stop quotations because of tensive supply.

Agrochemicals/Pesticides Marketing Information in China, Updated on Dec. 27th, 2016

Glyphosate

  1. Looking at the operating rate this month, the expected output had a slight decline comparing with November, which gives certain support to market price.
  2. Most raw materials maintain in high price level, especially for the major material Glycine, which supports to the production cost.
  3. In mid Dec., eight mainstream manufacturers held meeting in Zhejiang to exchange ideas on reasonable pricing mode. Considering the aspects like production costs etc, mainstream manufacturters are difficult to decrease the price proactively so as to stimulate orders.
  4. The environmental protection supervision is still ongoing. It is said that the environmental protection group will inspect in Sichuan province, which will heavily affect the normal market supply.
  5. We predict the price will have a further uptrend tendency before March, 2017 at least.

Paraquat

  1. Influenced by the ongoing environmental inspection, price of Pyridine heightened slightly. Not only Pyridine, but price of other materials are increasing.
  2. Main manufacturers have adequate orders in hand, and will be hard to receive any new orders before Chinese Lunar New Year.
  3. In the short term, price will keep upward growing trend.

Carbendazim

  1. The supply is currently under tight condition.
  2. Price increasing of crude oil leads the prices of all basic chemicals including OPDA (intermediate of Carbendazim) going up sharply.
  3. As you know, paper-making industry causes big pollution. With intensive environmental protection management, the price of cartons jumped up greatly, which pushes higher production costs of Carbendazim in relation to the small packagings.
  4. We forecast the price uptrend will last to March, 2017. 

Imidacloprid

  1. The market supply remain in tense situation and price is hovering at the high side. Only few manufacturers are opening the production line at present.
  2. According to current market, it has big possibility of further rising in price in the short run.

Fipronil

  1. Due to the strict control by ongoing strict environmental protection policy, the monthly output of mainstream suppliers are reduced a lot. The present supply falls short of market demand.
  2. The intermediate 5-Amino-3-cyano-1-[2,6-dichloro-4-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl] pyrazole is the product that China export to India market largely. With the demand picking-up from India, the tense situation of Fipronil aggravates.
  3. In our opinion, the tense condition will last to March, 2017.

Chlorpyrifos

  1. The tight supply situation of whole Chlorpyrifos market extends. Buyers are mainly sidelined.  
  2. Owing to the high environmental protection pressure, the market supply is declined, and the factories in east China still put off their schedule of resuming production.
  3. The main intermediate Sodium trichloro pyridinol is in tight supply.
  4. In the short term, price of Chlorpyrifos will maintain uptrend tendency.

 

 

Agrochemicals/Pesticides Marketing Information in China, Updated on Dec. 12th, 2016

Glyphosate

  1. Environmental protection pressure continues through the pesticide market, not only the prices of basic raw material are rising, prices of packaging materials such as carton, label, etc., are also heightening, which drive the prices increasing of finished products overall.
  2. Based on the current market, it is said that the American mainstream suppliers are increasing the price, which leads Chinese suppliers follow to rise in price as well.  
  3. As for Glycine (major raw material of Glyphosate), manufacturers have stopped production due to environment protection control by our government. More tighter supply of the raw material has pushed the price of glyphosate going up.  
  4. Taking a panoramic view of the international commodities market, as Donald John Trump, the new President of the United States has pledged to invest $550 billion on infrastructure construction, the looser fiscal policy may possibly bring the price increasing of commodities such as crude oil, natural gas, thereby pushing up the production cost of oversea Glyphosate manufacturers.

Paraquat

Paraquat supply is still tight and the price continues to rise, for the reasons:

  1. Mainstream suppliers have much orders in hand.
  2. At present, some provinces of Shandong, Jiangsu, Hubei etc., are under high environmental protection pressure, the manufactures of Paraquat are difficult to operate fully, causing the backlog of orders slightly.
  3. The rising price of herbicides like Glyphosate has stimulated the price uptrend of Paraquat.
  4. It is expected to maintain a high price trend in the short term.

Abamectin

  1. With the traditional heating season in North China now, the environmental issues aggravate, almost all factories are forced to stop production, which causes the severe shortage of Abamectin TC. Due to the on-going intense supply situation, Abamectin TC price keeps upward growing.  
  2. Seeing from the market, the overall demands for Abamectin has started picking up from the mid of Nov.
  3. We predict the price will keep price rising trend till March, 2017. 

Imidacloprid

  1. As to the manufacturers, the schedule of resuming production shows a continual delay due to the severe situation of environmental protection. Moverover, so far there is no plan while the original plan is to resume production in November.
  2. The supply of main intermediate 2 - chloro - 5 - chloro methyl pyridine is in tense situation which has brought the cost of Imidacloprid rising accordingly.  
  3. The tight supply situation of Imidacloprid is difficult to ease in a short term, which will lead the price rising continuously.

Chlorpyrifos

  1. From the current market feedback, whole market of Chlorpyrifos is in extremely tight supply, and the purchasers are mainly wait-and-see.  
  2. Given the current environmental protection pressure, the enterprises who were previously under maintenance still have no intention to resume production.  
  3. The price of raw materials increases slightly, which makes price of Chlorpyrifos a bit higher.
  4. In the short term, price of Chlorpyrifos will maintain at high position.

Glyphosate

  1. With the traditional heating season's coming in North China, the coal price is growing quickly because of severe short supply, which leads the price of basic chemicals including Yellow Phosphorus, Methanol etc(raw material of Glyphosate) crazily increased by approx. 30% in one month.
  2. The annual stock-up season is approaching. The overall demand become stronger, which pushes the price of Glyphosate in uptrend.
  3. Due to the serious environmental issues in Hebei province, factories are forced to stop production on a large scale covering the two major factories of Glycine. It is reported that about 200,000MT capacity will be stopped or limited this week. Moreover, the normal transportation is largely influenced by the bad weather of heavy snow.
  4. In conclusion, price of Glyphosate will keep uptrend in following weeks.

  3. Fast increasing of Glyphosate price drives price uptrend of Paraquat to some extent.
  4. According to the current market situation, Paraquat price will last uptrend or at least stable tendency before Chinese Lunar New Year at the end Jan, 2017.

2, 4-D

  1. Most manufacturers still haven't resumed their production due to the ongoing environmental protection supervision. The tense supply situation lasts.
  2. The present price is stable. We predict the price change will depend on the following demands. 

Imidacloprid

  1. The tight supply situation is no change. Affected by the onging environmental protection supervision, only few factories open the production lines. Until now, Jan., 2017 is the earliest delivery time among the whole market. As for other mainstream factories, the time of resuming production will be postponed to early December or even later.
  2. Price has crazily heightened around 20% compared to the price last month.
  3. The supply of key intermediate 2-chloro-chloromethylpyridine(CCMP) were in tight supply.
  4. As far as we see, the price of Imidacloprid will keep uptrend before Chinese Lunar New Year at the end Jan, 2017.

Fipronil

  1. 5-Amino-3-cyano-1-[2,6-dichloro-4-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl] pyrazole is the main intermediate for Fipronil, we got to know that India market requirements for the intermediate keep growing. This is one of the main factor to aggravate the current tense situation of Fipronil.
  2. The mainstream manufacturers received many orders and are quite busy in production. Till now, their production schedule of TC arranged to Jan, 2017.
  3. Along with this tense supply situation and the growing demands, we predict the price will further rise up.

Glyphosate Market Information, Updated on Oct. 27th, 2016

Price was increasing further but actual transaction is not so good this week.

Seeing from suppliers

1.) Price of its raw materials like Glycine, Yellow Phosphorus are remaining upward tendency, which gives some support to the production cost of Glyphosate.

2) Starting from Oct. 21st, our central environmental protection supervision will implement another round inspection covering 20 provinces. This will further aggravate the tense supply situation.

3) It’s peak season for selling Glyphosate at present. Manufacturers also have strong willing to hope obtain more profits at last quarter of the year.

4) Along with the product Paraquat 27.6% delisted from our domestic market since July 1st, Glyphosate is currently the best substitute (as Glufosinate's price still quite high) to move in to fill up the market gap of Paraquat SL. Finally, since Glyphosate price remains in low level for quite long time, price increasing trend is market-driven by Paraquat SL delisted to some degree.

Seeing from buyers

Part buyers finished purchasing plan during end August or early September, so they mainly take wait-and-see attitude on the ongoing price increase tendency.

However, according to recent market, we predict it will have big possibility of continuous price increasing, for reasons:

1) Supposed that 2nd round environmental protection supervision on 20 provinces implemented, 65% capacity will be heavily affected. The total market supply volume will reduce largely.

2) Furthermore, price of almost all raw materials including Yellow Phosphorus, Glycine, etc will maintain uptrend due to shortage. Both increasing costs of production and tense supply situation will support Glyphosate price.

3) Since it’s busy season right now, Glyphosate players are all hoping offset their loss earlier. Hence, they reach a consensus on heightening price.

Current Market Information for Glyphosate in China, Updated on Sep. 13th, 2016

This month, it seems not calm for glyphosate market.

There is one news that our EPA officers will start environment protection examination in Sichuan and Hubei provinces soon, where some major glyphosate manufacturers are located. Hence it will heavily influence the glyphosate normal production, and will also further influence the whole glyphosate market supply. Since late August, glyphosate's price began to increase. And from early September, the price was even sharply increased, which seems a little crazy as some factories adjusted price 5%-10% higher compared to the price before.

The price tendency chart as belows:

However, how long will this increasing period maintain? At present, it's difficult to estimate, the situation shall depend on the future market demand... The intention of price increasing from glyphosate producers are very strong, if the demand from market is obvious in the following weeks, then it'll push price keep increasing. Otherwise, it'll cool down...

Kind suggestion that it's better to pay close attention on the following tendency of the product if you have purchase plan in next two or three months.

At that period, the environmental controls are expected to generate the different level influences on the all area of producing agrochemical products. As for Glyphosate industrial chain, some manufacturers will stop delivery because of the traffic control. But, the price of Glyphosate keep stable due to the less demand and the producing capacity in Zhejiang is small percentage compared the whole glyphosate’s capacity in China. According to current market situation and previous years’ experience, we estimate the purchasing season will come in the mid&end of August, wish the situation will be improved at that time.

 

 

Agrochemicals/Pesticides Marketing Information in China, Updated on Aug. 22nd, 2016

Glyphosate

  1. August is usually the hottest month in China among the year. So August is considered as the traditional equipment maintenance season for manufacturers in view of production safety.

Our central government inspection groups implemented very strict environmental protection measures in some provinces including Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Shandong, etc where the major agrochemical suppliers located. With intensive environmental protection control, the normal production and supply of agrochemicals has been affected. 
  3. G20 summit in Zhejiang heavily influences the normal production of chemical manufacturers, and the logistic transportation in Zhejiang, Jiangsu and Shandong are limited as well.
  4. Coal is main fuel for factories. Price of coal has started to heighten which will push Glyphosate production costs raised.  
  5. Glyphosate price heightened a bit this month, but we predict the market price will retrace during the late September when factories resume production.

Paraquat

  1. The manufacturers have been under annual routine equipment maintenance, which causes the market supply in tight situation.
  2. Moreover, affected by the forbidden use and sell of Paraquat SL in our domestic, the existing market supply volume is reduced.
  3. The main raw material Pyridine price is stable at present. We predict Paraquat will keep steady price tendency before AgroChemEx(ACE) in October, 2016.

Glufosinate

  1. The price is in slight uptrend since mid August, because of the reduced supply caused by G20 summit and strict environmental inspection.
