Atrazine China Report 2018-Atrazine Market and Production in China

Atrazine, a triazine herbicide, is widely used worldwide, due to its good herbicidal effect, safety to crops and economical price. China's atrazine is export-oriented, with annual export volume of atrazine technical and formulations (converted to 97% technical) accounts for large share of the domestic annual output every year. In China, most of the atrazine (converted to 97% technical) was exported, and the rest was used to produce atrazine formulations, mainly including 38% SC, 50% SC, 80% WP and 90% WDG for domestic applications in 2015–2017.

During 2014–2015, due to the decreasing price of its raw material, cyanuric chloride, the domestic ex-works price of 97% atrazine technical has dropped. Similarly, prices of atrazine formulations also suffered decrease at the same time. Since Dec. 2016, the domestic ex-works price of 97% atrazine technical rebounded. In 2017, there was a slight decrease in cyanuric chloride price compared with that in 2016. Nevertheless, the ex-works price of atrazine technical still enjoyed uptrend. Then what made this happen?

The ex-works price of atrazine technical in China kept increasing in the beginning of 2018 and reached USD3,727.5/t in Feb., the highest during 2015–Nov. 2018. What were the driving factors behind the increasing price? Behind those factors, there may be some opportunities.

In order to help industry players find more opportunities in China’s atrazine market, CCM has carried out comprehensive analysis on atrazine industry, including registration, production, producers, export, consumption, and price change, as well as its competing products in China. This report can guide investments and business movements for the players who pay close attention to atrazine industry.

This is CCM's fifth edition report on China’s atrazine industry and it attaches importance to the following parts:
