Editor Notes

2012 was a tough year for the domestic fungicide industry. Unfortunately, in the past few months of 2013, there was no visible improvement due to a weak demand from home and abroad.

According to data from China Customs, China’s fungicide export continued to decline. In the first two months of this year, China only exported 11,200 tonnes of fungicides, down 1.7% year on year. Impacted by the weak demand, China’s fungicide production during this period was also down 13.3% year on year to 20,000 tonnes. The fungicide output only accounted for 3.4% of the total pesticide output, less than 4% for the first time.

At present, most of the fungicide products from domestic companies are very old ones with a low competitiveness. To change this situation, companies should optimize and upgrade their product structure. For example, some excellent products, such as pyraclostrobin, cyproconazole, tetraconazole and azoxystrobin are attracting a lot of attention.


With the number of pyraclostrobin’s field efficacy tests soaring, coupled with its patent expiring in June 2015, the market of pyraclostrobin in China is expected to be promising.

17 labs were approved for the comprehensive component analysis of the pesticide TC/TK in China, necessary for the pesticides’ registration, according to the Announcement No. 1891 published by the MOA on 24 Jan. 2013.

In 2012, China’s triazole fungicide industry maintained a rapid development along with the supply and demand booming.

Noposion, the largest pesticide formulation company in China, plans to buy shares from Changlong Chemicals, according to a notice released by it on 26 March 2013.

Zhibo Wanchang’s sales revenue was up 15.82% year on year in 2012, boosted by the strong performance of its major products, TMOF and TEOF.

China approved another technical registration of cyproconazole in Feb. this year. The registration of this product in the domestic market is expected to become popular in the near future.

Udragon Chemical becomes the first domestic company to get the formal registration of a tetraconazole formulation from the ICAMA.

In 2012, the export volume of China’s azoxystrobin technical and formulations soared by 100.4% and 153.4% respectively year on year.

An expected large area of rape sclerotinia rot stricken in China will drive up the domestic demand for fungicides like carbendazim, iprodione and procymidone.

China’s ex-works price of prochloraz 97% technical witnessed a sharp increase in early March 2013, thanks to the strong overseas demand.
