Editor’s notes 1302

Accompanied by the celebration of the 2013 Spring Festival, the whole pesticide industry in China remained stable in early Feb., 2012 such that most pesticide players operated quietly. Meanwhile, listed pesticide companies issued their annual report or profit preannouncements in successively. It’s believed that leading glyphosate manufacturers and paraquat manufacturers have good performance in 2012.

In 2013, the competition will be much fiercer for some other companies involved in the pesticide business. For instance, Yichang Huamnwell, which is a pharmaceutical enterprise, plans to invest in a nicosulfuron project. Aiming to enable more room to survive, the leading manufacturers in China have begun to expand their businesses and production chains one after another. In addition, some insiders have predicted that in 2013, non-tariff barriers from the EU and WTO will continue to increase their impact on domestic export.

Although facing severe challenges, domestic manufacturers remain optimistic about pesticides in that sales and exports of pesticides will continue to grow in 2013. But it is always necessary to have a careful attitude towards potential risks such as overcapacity and aggressive competitiveness, because the way to achieve innovation of the Chinese pesticide industry is very long and rugged.
