2,4-D Survey in China

2,4-D Survey in China

This report is a comprehensive analysis of the 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) industry in China.

In China, the history of production and application of 2,4-D has exceeded 30 years, and the 2,4-D's consumption has a stable market demand. Farmers prefer to use 2,4-D as a herbicide on wheat, corns and rice and as a plant growth regulator on eggplants, tomatoes, pumpkins and watermelons etc.

Increasing resistance of weeds to glyphosate in recent years and the withdrawal of paraquat aqueous solution (AS) from Chinese market starting on 1 July, 2016 brought 2,4-D products a new opportunity in China.

In recent years, 2,4-D industry in China also confronted with barriers, including sluggish demand from overseas market, pressure from the illegal producers, difficulty in pollutant treatment, etc.

The overall operating rate of 2,4-D manufacturers was unstable during these five years. From 2013 to 2017, oversupply have occurred in China's 2,4-D industry. It is predicted that policies issued by the government, especially environmental protection policies, will impose the largest effect on its future development.

The report is based on data sourced by diverse methods, such as desk research, telephone interview, network search. The data collected and compiled was variously sourced from telephone interviews, published magazines, journals, government statistics and CCM’s database, etc. Data obtained from various sources have been combined and cross-checked to ensure that this report is as accurate and methodologically sound as possible.
