Editor Notes

AgroChemEx 2012 is held in Shanghai on 20-22 Oct. CCM learns that insecticide is the most important segment in China’s pesticide industry from this meeting. Meanwhile, many insecticide producers restore long-lost smiles thanks to the soaring demand for insecticides this year mainly because insect pests like rice plant hopper and armyworm outbreak more seriously this year than 2011.

However, some producers think that the market seems not to be so optimistic despite the demand increases. The popularizing professional unified control of crop insect pests and diseases and government purchasing have some negative influence on insecticide sales. The number of beneficiaries of these two ways is limited. Some companies cooperating with the government like Jiangsu Anpon Electrochemical Co., Ltd. will have some benefits which may be more obvious in the future.

Meanwhile, some imported insecticides also pose a great threat though they have higher prices, and foreign companies’ investments in the promotion, marketing and services of insecticides is incomparable to those of domestic producers. Therefore, domestic insecticide companies must adopt comprehensive strategies like cooperating with the government, improving R & D capabilities and enhancing promotion, if they want to enhance their competitiveness.
