Although ISAAA reported a high growth of global planting area of GM crops in 2010 and 2011, China’s glyphosate exports didn’t see a significant growth in 2010 and 2011. But contributed by the high export growth of glyphosate technical and formulations, China’s export volume of glyphosate A.I. in 2012 witnesses a big increase, up by about 26% over 2011, which reveals that global planting area of GM crops achieves a high growth rate in 2012.
Corresponding with the high export growth rate of glyphosate, industrial concentration of China’s glyphosate also keeps increasing in 2012, but China’s glyphosate industry will still face many challenges in 2013. Will the industrial concentration of China glyphosate continue or even intensify to a high level in 2013?
It has been more than seven months since Anhui Huaxing’s announcement of its non-public issuing stock plan released in July 2012. This plan is approved by China Securities Regulatory Commission at the end of Jan. 2013, and Anhui Huaxing is stepping into the completion stage of its non-public issuing stock plan.
Along with the rising price of glyphosate in China in 2012, the stock prices of China’s glyphosate companies also apparently increase, and the highest growth rate lies in Nantong Jiangshan’s stock price, which increases by 111.79% over 2011.

China’s three listed glyphosate companies, namely Zhejiang Wynca, Nantong Jiangshan and Anhui Huaxing, may enjoy good operating performance in the whole year of 2012, and these three companies all predict that their net profit’s growth rate will exceed 500% in 2012.
Industrial concentration of China’s glyphosate keeps increasing in 2012, and the total export proportion of glyphosate A.I. manufactured by China’s top six glyphosate companies, namely Zhejiang Wynca, Nantong Jiangshan, Zhejiang Jinfanda, Jiangsu Yangnong, Sichuan Fuhua and Jiangsu Good Harvest-Weien, rises to about 70.02% of China’s total glyphosate A.I. export, up by 16.14 and 4.6 percentage points over 2010 and 2011 respectively.
