Metalaxyl is a systemic fungicide that is usually used to control plant diseases caused by oomycete fungi. Because of its broad-spectrum activity, metalaxyl is used worldwide for protecting a variety of fruits and vegetables.
Currently, there are only five producers of metalaxyl technical in China with a total capacity of 2,800 t/a. Over 60% of China’s metalaxyl is exported. The export volume has increased sharply since 2011 driven by the thriving demand from the overseas market.
China’s metalaxyl technical production was deeply influenced by its key raw material -2,6-dimethyl aniline before, especially in 2008 when the price of 2,6-dimethyl aniline exceeded USD20,000/t.
The overseas demand for China’s metalaxyl has showed an uptrend in the past two years and is likely to keep increasing.
Over 40% of China’s metalaxyl is exported Asian countries, and the share will keep increasing in the future.
