Survey of Acetochlor in China

Survey of Acetochlor in China

As a traditional agricultural country, China attaches great importance to pesticides production and has become a key pesticide exporter in the world. Nowadays, China can produce more than 400 varieties of pesticides and export more than 400 varieties of pesticides abroad, among which around 200 are widely produced.

Acetochlor accounts for a large market share among selective herbicides applied in China. It can be used for pre-emergent control of annual weeds and some broadleaf weeds in the fields of corn, cotton, peanut, soybean, etc. There's a decline in the production of acetochlor technical China from 2014 to 2015. But in 2016, the domestic output of the product was sharply increased mainly because of the increasing demand for acetochlor from overseas market. Though in 2016, the technical output of acetochlor accounted for only no more than 2% of herbicides' total in China. But in fact, the acetochlor industry has been suffering a serious oversupply in China. Many producers have suspended their production or even chose to exit the industry. It is noteworthy that the trend still goes on.

How will this industry go in the coming years? This report presents an overview of acetochlor's production, consumption and price in China, as well as a forecast on the product's future trend. You definitely will get some refreshing information on the acetochlor industry from the report.
