China’s 28 cities may shut down, restrict industrial production for National Day Parade

Aug. 16, 2019

A Chinese manufacturer recently issued an internal notice stating that manufacturers north of the Yellow River may be required to shut down or restrict their industrial production, to control air pollution and ensure blue skies for the National Day Parade. Customers wishing to receive delivery of goods need to stock up beforehand, it added.

One company in Beijing also released a notice stating that it received an instruction from its managing authority to prohibit trucks traveling on Beijing’s 6th Ring Road from 20th August to 10th October. A curfew will begin from 20th August and a lockout will begin from 1st September.

No official instructions have been released, but some factories have issued notices to close or restrict their production, to protect the environment and prepare for the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the People’s Republic of China.

It is now less than two months before 1st October, which is China’s National Day. What concerns the chemical industry is the need to ensure that blue skies will be present for the parade, and if factories will be forced to shut down or restrict their production.

Although the Chinese Ministry of Environment and Ecology has not yet released any instructions, during the celebration of China’s victory in World War Two in Beijing in 2015, the city and six surrounding provinces closed or restricted industrial production to ensure clear skies in Beijing.

During that period, Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei took action to restrict summer-related emissions of NOx and volatile organic compounds, with the aim of controlling motor vehicle emissions and volatile industrial organic emissions.

According to the head of a factory in Hebei Province, due to National Day, several cement factories near Beijing and Hebei Province are planning to close and conduct maintenance during the National Day Parade. The head of the factory added that compared to 2015, this year’s parade will be more magnificent, but as it will happen in autumn, when air pollution is usually quite serious, factories may need to close or restrict their industrial production in advance.

Price & supply trend: Prices of Chinese fungicide technical rising sharply, tight supply to continue

Jun. 6, 2019

China’s nation-wide work safety inspection is currently ongoing, and is being expanded to cover more regions. As a result, there is an increase in the number of factories in which production has been shut down or restricted. Compared to last month, the major production of herbicide and insecticide varieties have remained slow, though there is a sharp price rise in some products. Fungicides have risen sharply, as triazole and strobilurin fungicide products are largely produced in Jiangsu Province, where production is restricted and supplies are limited. Major varieties still remain slow, but there are signs of price rises for a majority of varieties. The extensive production shutdown and restriction of major product items have caused a surge in the active market for minor products.

Herbicide Market

During May, Glyphosate technical prices remained low, and the cost of production is also low, and this situation has been continuing  for an extended period. Glufosinate technical prices also remain low, while its formulation prices are falling, step by step. Acetochlor technical factories are intensely competing against each other. Trifluralin technical factories are being restrained by environmental regulations on waste acid treatment, which is a difficult process, thus production is restricted, resulting  in a tight supply. The haloxyfop-R-methyl terminal market remains stable, with a short supply in the upstream market due to insufficient production loads. Quizalofop-p-ethyl technical and nicosulfuron technical are in short supply, while upstream intermediates remain high. The supply is limited, and the production of the majority of factories are either shut down or restricted. Factories are restrained from quoting and taking purchase orders. Delivery is being fulfilled only for purchase orders placed earlier.

The Xiangshui Explosion has resulted in a price surge for resorcinol, which has had a large impact on the supply of oxyfluorfen technical and mesotrione technical. Also, the close-down of industrial parks in north Jiangsu Province has caused reductions in the number of bentazone technical factories. The stocks of clethodim technical are at a low level, and its supply may appear tight at a later stage, with the shutdown or restriction of the production of triketone.

Insecticide Market

Production of nicotine products still remains slow, while pyrethroid technical has started to decline, which has had an impact on the insecticide price level. CCMP and CCMT has been at a higher level, while nicotine technical exports are very slow, where high levels of stocks still remain. In general, it is running quite low, as only a few malathion technical factories are running production, resulting in short supplies. Profenofos technical, chlorpyrifos technical and phoxim technical productions are all affected by the restraint of work safety inspections, running at very low levels. The high level of waste discharges from organophosphorus productions will be a key factor affecting its supply at a later stage. Fipronil technical factories are accepting purchase orders, but there are no load productions yet, though many purchase orders for export are arriving.

The Xiangshui Explosion has also resulted in a continued tight situation with the supply of 2,6-difluorobenzamide, where downstream technical material manufacturers are frustrated, having led to price fluctuations of related products. Attention needs be paid to the timing of the increase of the production load of 2,6-difluorobenzamide. The supply of 3,3-dimethyl-4-pentenoic acid methyl ester and lambda cyhalothrin acid, upstream of pyrethroids, have increased to a certain degree, while prices remain on the low side. Pyrethroid products have started to slightly rebound.

Chlorfenapyr technical and bifenazate technical production in China are both being requested to become more centralized, which has currently restricted the production load. Supplies of intermediates are, at this moment, in short supply, while demand is relatively high, the tight supply might not be eased in a short period.

Fungicide Market

The production bases of fungicides are mainly located in Jiangsu Province, where a tense atmosphere pervades the market. Due to restraints caused by work safety inspections, the production load of difenoconazole technical factories is falling even further, leading to a serious product shortage and non-availability of the product on the market, while prices have risen sharply. Several prime agrochemical companies in China have started to manufacture supplies of pyraclostrobin technical, as downstream demand is continuing, while prices are rebounding, yet the supply remains short. The supply of azoxystrobin technical’s upstream intermediates is also short.

The carbendazim technical and thiophanate-methyl technical factories are constrained by strict environmental compliance regulatory requirements, being at low levels of stocks. However, their export demands remain normal and the market price is relatively stable. The fluazinam demand has increased, and its production is quite centralized in certain locations as export demand is surging and there is a large gap in supply. Further, the production of prochloraz technical is restricted, the level of stocks on the market is on the low side, while production output is seriously falling behind.

Now, with the upcoming cyazofamid technical business season and while factories are not running at high loads, there will be short supplies on the market. Dimethomorph technical, diethofencarb technical and diethofencarb technical are still in short supply. It is the slow market at present that has concealed the situation of the shortage of products.

Meanwhile, work safety inspections continued, while taking into account the repeat environmental compliance regulatory inspections from the central government, and the willingness to take purchase orders on the upstream side is still rather weak. With the continued work safety and environmental inspections, as well as the extended regions subject to inspections and the gradual consumption on the downstream side, the market is, in general, foreseen to be oriented to the demand from the terminal market. Demand for export purposes and demand in later stages are expected to be seen in the future, and the fungicide market will remain high.

Price & supply trend: China’s market may fluctuate and even reverse due to Xiangshui explosion

Mar. 28, 2019

 

The 21st March explosion at the Tianjiayi Chemical Plant in Yancheng Xiangshui Industrial Park caused heavy casualties. After the incident, nation-wide actions were immediately taken to put in place safety checks on hazardous chemical production, warehousing and transportation enterprises to identify hidden dangers. The ongoing work safety-related measures and actions are resulting in more difficulties for production within industrial parks, where pesticide production is greatly affected. Suspension in production and restrictions in upstream industry sectors are leading to short supplies, and causing delays in the recovery of production.

With the cumulative impact being generated, the gap between supply and demand has again widened. The market, which is expected to remain stable, might be affected, or may even goes into reverse. Close attention is required to be paid to pesticide supplies, as affected by the Xiangshui explosion.

Herbicide Market

There are many varities of herbicides being affected by the Xiangshui explosion, so the market needs to be watched closely. The glyphosate technical-oriented glycine market remains stable. Downstream glyphosate technical buyers have started replenishments in small quantities, and consumption by terminal users has gradually begun.

Supplies of amide herbicide(such as Alachlor, Acetochlor, Pretilachlor, Butachlor…etc) remain low, and inventories are not sufficient at each level of supplies. It is very possible that a limited supply situation will occur for a short period of time once all buyers begin normal purchasing.

The price of 2,4-D remains high, though purchases of bensulfuron-methyl technical at their high price levels have begun to decline, vendors are in competition to sell, and prices are expected to fall. Only a small number of oxadiazon technical manufacturers are operating, and short supplies are expected to continue, as affected by the delayed recovery of production in industrial parks in North Jiangsu, as a result of the Xiangshui accident.

The supply of oxyfluorfen technical and mesotrione technical has been greatly affected by the Xiangshui incident, resorcinol is in short supply and prices are rising, being sustained by the strong backup of costs. There is a high probability of a reversal in stabilized market prices and supply situations. Bentazone technical production in industrial parks has been ordered to suspend operations due to environmental compliance regulations, inventory is not sufficient at each level of supplies, and expected to gradually become short. The supply of cyhalofop-butyl technical has attracted close attention from both upstream and downstream factories, and the supply of upstream 3,4-difluorobenzonitrile and propionic acid still remains short, being a further impact from the Xiangshui incident, which needs to be watched.

Atrazine technical factories have higher level of stocks which rely on consumption of terminal markets, which are now being depleted slowly. The impact from the Xiangshui incident needs to be continually watched.

Insecticide Market

Prices of upstream nicotine CCMP and CCMT remain high, but imidazolidine, ethyl N-cyanoethanimideate and oxadiazine have all declined, where factories and distributors suffer due to pressure from inventories, though the probability of stabilization of the market is high.

The price of diethyl chlorothiophosphate has declined prices of its downstream profenofos technical, chlorpyrifos technical and phoxim technical are moving down.

Fipronil technical vendors are taking purchase orders at this moment, though production is not running at normal yet. Purchase orders are mostly for export.

The prices of pyrethroid’s upstream dimethyl-4-pentenoic acid methyl ester and m-phenoxybenzaldehyde remain high, and production of lambda cyhalothrin acid is not running at normal. Orders are being placed mostly for export; pyrethroid is in general being sustained by the backup of cost.

Fungicide Market

This week, the production of difenoconazole technical increased. The export of propiconazole technical is low due to high levels of inventories, and prices remain on the low side. Hexaconazole technical is in short supply, and demand is low. Tebuconazole technical production has been suspended, while intermediate prices and market quotations have risen. Fewer factories are running production of tricyclazole technical, and intermediate supplies are still restricted.

There is fierce competition among pyraclostrobin technical vendors, downstream inventories are being depleted, and the market is dominated by a wait-and-see attitude. The supply of azoxystrobin technical has increased, while its cost effectiveness drops. The low-level price and the advantage of the cost effectiveness of pyraclostrobin technical are expected to have a significant impact on purchases of some fungicides.

Carbendazim technical and thiophanate-methyl technical factories are suffering great pressure from environmental compliance regulations, and inventory is at low level. Due to the Xiangshui explosion, close attention to supply of the intermediate o-phenylenediamine(OPDA) is required. The prochloraz technical production load is restricted, its inventory is low, price continues to rise and production output is seriously insufficient.

Small number of factories are running production of thifluzamide technical, though stocks on the market are running out. Dimethomorph technical, diethofencarb technical and iprodione technical are in short supply, and factories are running low.

Conclusion

Downstream demand gradually has begun, while stocks in factories and distributors are being eliminated, step by step, and purchases for replenishment have increased. With the continued cumulative impact from the Xiangshui accident, the nation-wide safety check and environmental compliance regulations will surely lead to declined production of pesticide technical and intermediates, which will result in reduced supplies, delays in the recovery of production in industrial parks, and increased imbalances between supply and demand. The stabilized market may still be off course and may even go into reverse. Close attention is required to be paid to trends in the pesticide market, as being affected by the Xiangshui explosion.

Glyphosate

  1. Viewing from the market, Glycine's cost is on the rise sharply with the compression of profit margin of Glyphosate manufacturers, especially for those who don't have relevant assorted products. On the other hand, the price of other raw materials, such as Yellow Phosphorus, Liquid Chlorine etc., are also going up in some way.
  2. The operation rate stays high for Glyphosate, the supply of TC is sufficient relatively.
  3. Viewing from the purchasing market, the current price is close to the high point of nearly one year, which brings out the certain risks in purchasing. Hence, we suggest to hold the attitude of "wait-and-see", purchase on demand to reduce inventory.
  4. In terms of market demand, the American market has overdrawn large demand for the fourth-quarter.
  5. In a short term, Glyphosate's market may stay in consolidation.

Paraquat

  1. Pyridine's price turns low a little, which causes the lost support of Paraquat's costs.
  2. Thai government restricts the quantity of annual import, which leads to a big gap between supply and demand.
  3. In terms of market, in order to avoid inventory, manufacturers usually produce according to orders.
  4. Considering that Paraquat is banned gradually, the price is not expected to increase.

Glufosinate

  1. At present, the operation of domestic mainstream suppliers is stable, and enterprises in north China haven't indicated that they are affected by the limitation of heating season yet.
  2. From the perspective of costs, the price of bulk cargos has been increased, pushing up the cost of Glufosinate, and suppliers are not willing to sell at a lower price.
  3. Considering that the market is entering into peak sales season gradually, the trend of Glufosinate will maintain high and shock in a short term.

Diuron

  1. According to the feedback from upstream suppliers, the price of 3, 4-dichloroaniline is still possible to be increased, leading to the high costs tendency.
  2. Supplier's sales situation is relatively good, with little inventory pressure in a short run.

Chlorpyrifos

  1. Raw materials of Chlorpyrifos are under pressure of environmental protection, and the supply of intermediate remains tensive.
  2. The operating rate of suppliers in Jiangsu, Hubei and other places stays low. The prospect of production resumption of enterprises in Lianyungang/Jiangsu is not too optimistic.
  3. Judging from the current market feedback, suppliers of Chlorpyrifos have a low operation rate and they are reluctant to sell.
  4. From a short-term point of view, the price of Chlorpyrifos will continue the upward tendency.

Methomyl

  1. The main raw material Methomyl-oxime is in tensive circumstance, and it is difficult to be improved shortly.
  2. Due to environmental protection issue and the shortage of raw materials, production capacity of main factories is limited. Moreover, they deliver cargos to their major customers in priority. Some manufacturers have scheduled orders to January and February 2019. In a result, manufacturers are having restricted ability to produce for new orders at present.
  3. In a short period of time, it will be difficult to ease the tensive market situation of Methomyl. Accordingly, its price will continue to rise.

Glufosinate

  1. Glufosinate's price remains stable. Most of its mainstream suppliers are holding regular orders from customers with long-term relationship. The pressure of sales is low.
  2. Manufacturers in Shandong are affected by environmental protection issue. In a result, recovery for their production is a long shot.
  3. There is no significant increase for market demand in a short run.
  4. Judging from the current market reaction, we predict that Glufosinate's price will decline bit by bit.

Diuron

  1. The supply of main material, 3,4-DCA, remains tensive.
  2. Diuron's manufacturers are mainly producing for previous orders at present. The capacity for new orders might be confined.
  3. In a short term, the price of Diuron will be stabilized.

Chlorpyrifos

  1. The upstreams raw materials are under the pressure of environmental protection issue, which causes the tensive supply of intermediate.
  2. The production rate stays low for Chlorpyrifos. Although the related documents of re-operation for enterprises are released in Lianyungang/Jiangsu Province, the realistic condition doesn't seems to be optimistic. It's extremely difficult to obtain cargos of Chlorpyrifos in present market.
  3. Chlorpyrifos' price is going upward within a short period.

Imidacloprid

  1. The price of raw material is staying in a rather high position.

Glyphosate

  1. The market supply of Glycine is declining a little, its price is coming upward accordingly.
  2. A mainstream factory of Glyphosate received an order in a quantity of 4,000-5,000MT from America last week. They plan to produce the cargo for this order at full capacity as they're taking this order for priority. Other Glyphosate's mainstream factories are awared and adjusting their prices into higher levels one after another.
  3. Shortly, whether the price of Glyphosate will continue to increase or not is depending on the exact market demands.

2,4-D

  1. Upstream raw material is extremely tensive, which brings out the price increases.
  2. Besides the serious environmental protection issue, 2,4-D is having worse smell due to current high temperature. The overall operating rate is getting low, and causes its limited supply.
  3. We predict that the price of 2,4-D will keep rising in a short time.

Glufosinate

  1. With the falling price of Glufosinate's raw material, the cost is declining as well.

    Viewing from the current market, it's during slack season for agrochemicals, the purchasing situation is at low tide accordingly.

    Considering the prices of raw materials in China are gradually going down along with the anticipation of the expanding on its production, we will not rule out the possibility that Glufosinate's price is going to decline continuously in a short term.

Diuron

  1. The main raw material, 3,4-DCA, is out of supply in the market at present.

    Affected by environmental protection and high temperature, partial manufacturers are suspended for overhaul. It's difficult to find the cargo due to its low operating rate for now.

    It is predicted that the price of Diuron is barely possible to drop.

Propanil

  1. Propanil's raw material supply both from China and abroad is in great shortage, and even out of stock in whole market.
  2. Plants of Propanil are halt production all along. There is no cargo to supply in China.
  3. In a short run, Propanil's price is still possible to rise suddenly and sharply.

Chlorpyrifos

  1. The upstream raw material is under the pressure of environmental protection issue, hence there is a slight upward trend for Chlorpyrifos's price.
  2. The operating rates of the manufacturers in Hubei and Jiangsu are at low positions. In a result, the restricted output causes its short supply.
  3. According to media reports, Ninth circuit U.S. court in San Francisco issued an order against EPA to eliminate all trading involvements of Chlorpyrifos in America within 60 days.
  4. In a short term view, the price of Chlorpyrifos is estimated to keep rising.

Agrochemicals/Pesticides Marketing Information in China, Updated on Jun 22th, 2018

Glyphosate

  1. The tension of partial upstream raw material supply forced manufacturers to cut back on the production.
  2. There is no slack at all for the strength of environmental protection inspection by Central Government this year. In addition, since the temperature is continuously rising, some suppliers are considering to reduce the production load, which leads an overall decline of market supply.
  3. In a view of the high price in China, overseas buyers are holding the attitude of "wait-and-see".
  4. In the spread of the sentiment of begrudged sale, Glyphosate's price is predicted to be stable in a short run.

Paraquat

  1. The price of Pyridine stays low, which restrictedly supports the cost of Paraquat.
  2. It's during the low season of herbicide sales, purchasers are remaining hesitant.
  3. Shortly, the market stability of Paraquat is going to maintain.

2,4-D

  1. The price of 2,4-D's upstream raw material is partially increased, and causes the upwards of its cost.
  2. The extreme pressure from environmental protection issue in Shandong and Zhejiang makes a great difficulty for manufacturers to produce there in short period. Besides, it's overhaul season for other factories at present. 2,4-D's supply reduced remarkably in a result.
  3. We predict that the price of 2,4-D will keep rising in a short time.

Glufosinate

  1. Manufacturers' production is stabilized and sufficient, which is not affected by environmental protection inspection.
  2. The sales market is gradually entering the slack season.
  3. Suppliers have increased more investment and attention for environmental protection, which is holding a certain support to the cost of Glufosinate.
  4. Viewing from a short period, Glufosinate's price will remain steady.

Diuron

  1. Affecting by environmental protection issue, the intermediate, 3,4 Dichloroaniline, is tensive on supply. Diuron's operation rate is getting lower.
  2. The sales season is at low tide, the orders quantity is decreasing accordingly.
  3. Diuron's price is predicted to stay stable for a while.

Propanil

  1. The main raw material, 3,4-DCA, is mostly imported from India, and it's shortage of the supply.
  2. Since there is only BASF can supply the raw material - Propionic Acid in China, its price is constantly increased.
  3. Compared to overseas TC manufacturers, domestic prices of TC are losing competitive advantages, and being difficult to be raised. On the other hand, the cost pressure is increasing due to environmental protection issue. The willingness to produce is not strong for mainstream manufacturers.
  4. In a short term view, the price of Propanil is hard to fall back. On the contrary, it still have the possibility to rise.

Chlorpyrifos

  1. Influenced by the environmental protection policy, the supply of intermediate, Trichloropyridin-2-OI Sodium and Ethyl Chloride, becomes tight.
  2. As the production load of Chlorpyrifos is dropping, the supply has thus fallen.
  3. Considering it's off-season for purchasing, the market demand is limited and hard to have substantial progress.
  4. We predict that Chlorpyrifos's price will maintain upward tendency recently.

Imidacloprid

Agrochemicals/Pesticides Marketing Information in China, Updated on April 18th, 2018

Glyphosate

  1. The prices of the upstream raw materials, especially of Glycine, keep increasing, which causes cost escalation of Glyphosate.
  2. The operation rate of manufacturers stays high. However, one of the largest TC manufacturers - XingFa was shut down since our President Xi visited that area at the end of last month, which leaded the market price increase of Glyphosate suddenly.
  3. From the view of season, it's about to be slack sales season for Glyphosate. Accordingly, the quantity of Glyphosate's stock in North America is rather high, which leads a slight decline for the end-formulation prices there. On the other hand, the drought in main consumption area in South America hasn't been alleviated, which means the procurement capacity is limited. Overall, overseas buyers are mostly holding the attitude of "wait-and-see".
  4. Shortly, the trend of Glyphosate's price will keep upward tendency.

Paraquat

  1. The price of raw material Pyridine is falling.
  2. The operation of mainstream factories for Paraquat in China is stable.

Thiamethoxam

  1. The price of Chloronicotinyl insecticide falls back a lot, which brings on the downward pricing of Thiamethoxam.
  2. The high prices of intermediates - "Thiazole" and "Oxadiazine" reduce the profit margins of technical factories.
  3. Influenced by environmental issues, most of the factories in Jiangsu which are producing Thiamethoxam technical are in shutdown.
  4. The price is down at the bottom currently, the profit space is small. Its price is estimated to rise before long.

Imidacloprid

  1. The price of intermediate - CCMP appears to fall back.
  2. The output of mainstream factories is large currently, and there is a few inventory in market. Part of the suppliers are under pressure on sales.
  3. The present overall weak demand is difficult to support high selling price.
  4. From the long-term market perspective, applying three specific Nicotinic insecticides outdoor, which including Imidacloprid, is going to be banned by European Union before the end of this year. The consumption of Imidacloprid will be affected to some extent.
  5. Due to ShangHai Cooperation Organization Summit will be held in Tsingtao/ Shandong in June, some factories will start the equipment maintenance period from the mid-to-late of May. The rate of Imidacloprid price decreacing is about to be slowed down.
  6. The technical price at present is equivalent to the price in last March. In a short term, there is still a room for the price decline.

Glyphosate

  1. Looking at the policy in China, Nov. 15, 2017 to Mar. 15, 2018 is the traditional heating season, so it has big possibility that the suppliers of Glycine will be forced to limit production, which will give support on Glyphosate price.
  2. Looking at present market, the transaction is slack. The buyers are mainly taking “wait-and-see” attitude on current high-level price. The operating rate of local Glyphosate manufacturers maintains in relatively high.
  3. In short run, whether price further rising of Glyphosate will be basically depending on the official advisory of production limitation on Nov. 15, 2017.

Paraquat

  1. Price of Pyridine is stable.
  2. Seeing the operating rate, the mainstream factories are almost all suspending the production. The market demand exceeds the supply ability of manufacturers.  
  3. Affected by the impact from managing haze weather in winter, it’s difficult to receive many orders for the manufacturers who just resume the production.
  4. In the short term, price of Paraquat will maintain in high level or slight increase.

Diuron

  1. From the raw materials, price of 3,4-DCA is hard to decrease due to severe shortage, which supports the price of Diuron.

  3. As for manufacturers, they have no pressures in selling, so it has no possibility for them to reduce price proactively.
  4. As far as we see, Diuron price will hopefully keep increasing further.

Chlorpyrifos

  1. Seeing from the supply of raw material, price of ethyl chloride and Sodium 3,5,6-trichloropyridin-2-olate still remain at high level, which gives the cost support to Chlorpyrifos. Recent days, the ethyl chloride factories in Hubei have plan to resume their production, this may promote Chlorpyrifos factories's rate of operation.
  2. Only few Chlorpyrifos factories who are running the production line, their production is not stable. Overall market supply were seriously affected.
  3. Currently, the price of Chlorpyrifos is hovering at high level. Customers keep an very caution attitude of purchasing.

Glyphosate

  1. The production of raw material – Glycine is stable, but the price dropped slightly. 
  2. From the perspective of industry chain, Organic Silicone market performs well at present, and the by-product Methyl Chloride remains at high price, which provide Glyphosate with a price cut.
  3. From the perspective of purchasing market, the price downtrend of Glyphosate in Chinese market aggravates the “wait-and-see" attitude of buyers abroad.
  4. Environmental inspections seem no influence on the production of Glyphosate. The current market supply is sufficient. We predict that its price will continue the downward tendency in a short time.

Paraquat

  1. The price of main raw material – Pyridine will sustain the upward tendency in April. The tight supply of Pyridine influences the production of Paraquat.
  2. Manufactories have adequate orders in hand, hence they have no intention to reduce price.
  3. In the short term, the price may keep the rising tendency.

Glufosinate

  1. Manufactories have enough orders, and their production schedule has been fully arranged to May.
  2. Environmental protection inspection in April will influence the mainstream manufactories. The supply of Glufosinate will be restricted again.
  3. Because of the tight supply, it is estimated that the price of Glufosinate will hardly have room to fall down.

Emamectin Benzoate

  1. The main raw material –Abamectin TC is in a tight supply.
  2. Due to the massive demand of Emamectin Benzoate, manufactories have plenty orders.
  3. Environmental issues limit the production of Emamectin Benzoate, which led to a tensive supply.
  4. It is estimated that the price will continue uptrend in a short time.

Fipronil

  1. Manufactories have received ample orders, which their production plan has been already arranged to June. 
  2. The existing price is getting near the historical highs.
  3. Fipronil’s supply still in tight situation. As far as we see, it has small probability of large price increases within the short time.

Chlorpyrifos

  1. The major intermediate - Ethyl Chloride is in rather tight supply, which causes Chlorpyrifos’s operating rate in low condition.
  2. Manufactories are mainly busy in delivering the previous orders, so they have less stress in selling.
  3. Chlorpyrifos price reached a record high level, which had no momentum of price rise further. We suggest clients to wait and see for the moment if any demand.

Mancozeb

  1. With the tensive supply of raw material – Ethylenediamine, the price of Mancozeb will keep rising.
  2. Mancozeb is in very short supply, manufactories’ orders have been arranged to 2-3 months later.
  3. The market demand is increasing. We think the price would remain in high level in the short term.

Glyphosate

  1. Major raw material – PMIDA is in the ample supply, and its price will continue to decline by the fall in the price of Glyphosate.
  2. The second quarter is the slack season at the chemical market; therefore, the price of other raw materials like yellow phosphoru and methanol can hardly increase.
  3. Historically, March is the last busy season in the first half of one year. Oversea buyers keep the attitude “Wait-and-See".

Paraquat

  1.  The price of main raw material - pyridine will continue to increase this week because of the tensive supply.  
  2. Part of the manufacturers is mainly busy in completing the former orders until May, 2017, and they have been unable to receive any new orders. Paraquat will keep in price uptrend tendency.

2,4-D

  1. The price of major raw material-Phenol is stable.
  2. The market of 2,4-D is still in tight supply condition. We predict 2,4-D price will maintain the consolidation in the short term.

Chlorpyrifos

  1. As for one of the major raw material-Ethyl Chloride, its operating rate is low, which leads the tight supply. Moreover, another major raw material - Sodium 3,5,6-trichloropyridin-2-olate remains in shortage as well, and price keeps going up.
  2. The overall market supply of Chlorpyrifos is still tensive. We predict it will sustain in the high price position.

Imidacloprid

  1. The major raw material- 2-chloro-chloromethylpyridine still in tight supply. This situation would not eliminate in short time.
  2. The price of Imidacloprid will be in the increasing tendency in short-term market. However, in long-term market, as more manufacturers start to produce Imidacloprid, the price will possibly have a decline tendency.

Agrochemicals/Pesticides Marketing Information in China, Updated on Jan. 17th, 2017

Glyphosate

  1. This week, the market price of Glyphosate starts to slide down.
  2. Looking at the raw materials, with grey haze's gradually disappearing in North China, the mainstream manufacturers of Glycine(major material of Glyphosate) resume production step by step. The prices of raw materials are weakened, which leaves Glyphosate some room to the downtrend.  
  3. Looking at the present operating rate, the whole market supply of the 1st quarter of 2017 will be sufficient. This will put up resistance to the price increase.
  4. We predict the price will principally maintain a weak decline before Chinese Lunar New Year. 

Paraquat

  1. At present, almost all manufacturers stop quotations because of tensive supply.
  2. The manufacturers are mainly busy in completing the orders which are received earlier. The transaction volume of new orders is less.
  3. We think price will remain uptrend tendency before Chinese New Year.

Chlorpyrifos

  1. The tense market supply of Chlorpyrifos is no sign of improving. For Jiangsu manufacturers, their original plan of resuming production is early this month, but the realities is that they will postpone to be after Chinese New Year.
  2. The supply of main intermediate Sodium Trichloro Pyridinol is in extremely tight situation.  
  3. The manufacturers mainly fulfill the previous orders. They have difficulties to receive any new orders now.

Agrochemicals/Pesticides Marketing Information in China, Updated on Dec. 27th, 2016

Glyphosate

  1. Looking at the operating rate this month, the expected output had a slight decline comparing with November, which gives certain support to market price.
  2. Most raw materials maintain in high price level, especially for the major material Glycine, which supports to the production cost.
  3. In mid Dec., eight mainstream manufacturers held meeting in Zhejiang to exchange ideas on reasonable pricing mode. Considering the aspects like production costs etc, mainstream manufacturters are difficult to decrease the price proactively so as to stimulate orders.
  4. The environmental protection supervision is still ongoing. It is said that the environmental protection group will inspect in Sichuan province, which will heavily affect the normal market supply.
  5. We predict the price will have a further uptrend tendency before March, 2017 at least.

Paraquat

  1. Influenced by the ongoing environmental inspection, price of Pyridine heightened slightly. Not only Pyridine, but price of other materials are increasing.
  2. Main manufacturers have adequate orders in hand, and will be hard to receive any new orders before Chinese Lunar New Year.
  3. In the short term, price will keep upward growing trend.

Carbendazim

  1. The supply is currently under tight condition.
  2. Price increasing of crude oil leads the prices of all basic chemicals including OPDA (intermediate of Carbendazim) going up sharply.
  3. As you know, paper-making industry causes big pollution. With intensive environmental protection management, the price of cartons jumped up greatly, which pushes higher production costs of Carbendazim in relation to the small packagings.
  4. We forecast the price uptrend will last to March, 2017. 

Imidacloprid

  1. The market supply remain in tense situation and price is hovering at the high side. Only few manufacturers are opening the production line at present.
  2. According to current market, it has big possibility of further rising in price in the short run.

Fipronil

  1. Due to the strict control by ongoing strict environmental protection policy, the monthly output of mainstream suppliers are reduced a lot. The present supply falls short of market demand.
  2. The intermediate 5-Amino-3-cyano-1-[2,6-dichloro-4-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl] pyrazole is the product that China export to India market largely. With the demand picking-up from India, the tense situation of Fipronil aggravates.
  3. In our opinion, the tense condition will last to March, 2017.

Chlorpyrifos

  1. The tight supply situation of whole Chlorpyrifos market extends. Buyers are mainly sidelined.  
  2. Owing to the high environmental protection pressure, the market supply is declined, and the factories in east China still put off their schedule of resuming production.
  3. The main intermediate Sodium trichloro pyridinol is in tight supply.
  4. In the short term, price of Chlorpyrifos will maintain uptrend tendency.

 

 

Agrochemicals/Pesticides Marketing Information in China, Updated on Dec. 12th, 2016

Glyphosate

  1. Environmental protection pressure continues through the pesticide market, not only the prices of basic raw material are rising, prices of packaging materials such as carton, label, etc., are also heightening, which drive the prices increasing of finished products overall.
  2. Based on the current market, it is said that the American mainstream suppliers are increasing the price, which leads Chinese suppliers follow to rise in price as well.  
  3. As for Glycine (major raw material of Glyphosate), manufacturers have stopped production due to environment protection control by our government. More tighter supply of the raw material has pushed the price of glyphosate going up.  
  4. Taking a panoramic view of the international commodities market, as Donald John Trump, the new President of the United States has pledged to invest $550 billion on infrastructure construction, the looser fiscal policy may possibly bring the price increasing of commodities such as crude oil, natural gas, thereby pushing up the production cost of oversea Glyphosate manufacturers.

Paraquat

Paraquat supply is still tight and the price continues to rise, for the reasons:

  1. Mainstream suppliers have much orders in hand.
  2. At present, some provinces of Shandong, Jiangsu, Hubei etc., are under high environmental protection pressure, the manufactures of Paraquat are difficult to operate fully, causing the backlog of orders slightly.
  3. The rising price of herbicides like Glyphosate has stimulated the price uptrend of Paraquat.
  4. It is expected to maintain a high price trend in the short term.

Abamectin

  1. With the traditional heating season in North China now, the environmental issues aggravate, almost all factories are forced to stop production, which causes the severe shortage of Abamectin TC. Due to the on-going intense supply situation, Abamectin TC price keeps upward growing.  
  2. Seeing from the market, the overall demands for Abamectin has started picking up from the mid of Nov.
  3. We predict the price will keep price rising trend till March, 2017. 

Imidacloprid

  1. As to the manufacturers, the schedule of resuming production shows a continual delay due to the severe situation of environmental protection. Moverover, so far there is no plan while the original plan is to resume production in November.
  2. The supply of main intermediate 2 - chloro - 5 - chloro methyl pyridine is in tense situation which has brought the cost of Imidacloprid rising accordingly.  
  3. The tight supply situation of Imidacloprid is difficult to ease in a short term, which will lead the price rising continuously.

Chlorpyrifos

  1. From the current market feedback, whole market of Chlorpyrifos is in extremely tight supply, and the purchasers are mainly wait-and-see.  
  2. Given the current environmental protection pressure, the enterprises who were previously under maintenance still have no intention to resume production.  
  3. The price of raw materials increases slightly, which makes price of Chlorpyrifos a bit higher.
  4. In the short term, price of Chlorpyrifos will maintain at high position.

 

 

Agrochemicals/Pesticides Marketing Information in China, Updated on Nov. 22nd, 2016

Glyphosate

  1. With the traditional heating season's coming in North China, the coal price is growing quickly because of severe short supply, which leads the price of basic chemicals including Yellow Phosphorus, Methanol etc(raw material of Glyphosate) crazily increased by approx. 30% in one month.
  2. The annual stock-up season is approaching. The overall demand become stronger, which pushes the price of Glyphosate in uptrend.
  3. Due to the serious environmental issues in Hebei province, factories are forced to stop production on a large scale covering the two major factories of Glycine. It is reported that about 200,000MT capacity will be stopped or limited this week. Moreover, the normal transportation is largely influenced by the bad weather of heavy snow.
  4. In conclusion, price of Glyphosate will keep uptrend in following weeks.

Paraquat

  1. Paraquat price rebounded after AgroChemEx in Shanghai in mid October. The price tendency keeps going up, and supply tends to be more tense.
  2. Among all manufacturers, only around 4 manufacturers' production line still opened. Almost all Shandong manufacturers ceased production because of environmental protection supervision, they may resume production in early Dec, but the exact time is still uncertain.
  3. Fast increasing of Glyphosate price drives price uptrend of Paraquat to some extent.
  4. According to the current market situation, Paraquat price will last uptrend or at least stable tendency before Chinese Lunar New Year at the end Jan, 2017.

2, 4-D

  1. Most manufacturers still haven't resumed their production due to the ongoing environmental protection supervision. The tense supply situation lasts.
  2. The present price is stable. We predict the price change will depend on the following demands. 

Imidacloprid

  1. The tight supply situation is no change. Affected by the onging environmental protection supervision, only few factories open the production lines. Until now, Jan., 2017 is the earliest delivery time among the whole market. As for other mainstream factories, the time of resuming production will be postponed to early December or even later.
  2. Price has crazily heightened around 20% compared to the price last month.
  3. The supply of key intermediate 2-chloro-chloromethylpyridine(CCMP) were in tight supply.
  4. As far as we see, the price of Imidacloprid will keep uptrend before Chinese Lunar New Year at the end Jan, 2017.

Fipronil

  1. 5-Amino-3-cyano-1-[2,6-dichloro-4-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl] pyrazole is the main intermediate for Fipronil, we got to know that India market requirements for the intermediate keep growing. This is one of the main factor to aggravate the current tense situation of Fipronil.
  2. The mainstream manufacturers received many orders and are quite busy in production. Till now, their production schedule of TC arranged to Jan, 2017.
  3. Along with this tense supply situation and the growing demands, we predict the price will further rise up.

Paraquat

  1. Seeing from the raw material, the price of Pyridine is in steady trendency for now.
  2. Affected by the ongoing environmental protection supervision in China, the mainstream manufacturers are forced to stop production, which leads the overall market volume declined dramatically.
  3. From the standpoint of exchange rate, our currency RMB devaluation brings suppliers some space of rising their price.
  4. In our opinion, price will be possibly downward adjustment when the environmental protection supervision finished.

Diuron

  1. From the market feedback, the ongoing environmental protection supervision had impact on the normal production of manufacturers. The total market volume keeps in tight situation.
  2. With the oversea demand's picking up, the major manufacturers fully arranged the orders to the late December.
  3. Price is stable tendency for the moment. However, it has possibility of price downward change during the mid of November when the environmental protection supervision is over.

2, 4-D

  1. At present, small scale manufacturers still haven't resumed their production because of the ongoing environmental protection supervision, which causes the supply remains tense situation.
  2. It is said that some players are opening their plans of stock up. This may accelerate the price upward growing.

  3. As far as we see, price will be in stable trend in the short-term.

Chlorpyrifos

  1. At the moment, price of Chlorpyrifos is steady. However, it has increased around 10% comparing to the price of end September.
  2. Some factories are planning to resume production. But with the 2nd round environmental protection inspection by our government, the time of their resuming production was influenced.
  3. Basic chemical raw material of Chlorpyrifos raised, which gives support to cost of Chlorpyrifos.

Imidacloprid

  1. The most current price has crazily heightened around 20% comparing to the price in April.
  2. Seeing from the supply, the tense situation is lasting as a majority of factories still haven't restarted their production influencing by onging environmental protection supervision. Some factories (whose production lines are running) refused to receive new order because their production schedule have fully arranged to the beginning of 2017.  
  3. According to the current tight supply situation, we think that price of Imidacloprid will keep uptrend at least till the first quarter of 2017.

Fipronil

  1. Influenced by our central environmental protection supervision from July and G20 Summit in Sep, most factories still haven't resumed their production line until now, which aggravates the shortage of supply.

  3. The mainstream manufacturers are currently busy in production. Till now, their production schedule arranged to mid of Dec, and some of them even stopped to receive any new order tentatively.

 

 

Glyphosate Market Information, Updated on Oct. 27th, 2016

Price was increasing further but actual transaction is not so good this week.

Seeing from suppliers

1.) Price of its raw materials like Glycine, Yellow Phosphorus are remaining upward tendency, which gives some support to the production cost of Glyphosate.

2) Starting from Oct. 21st, our central environmental protection supervision will implement another round inspection covering 20 provinces. This will further aggravate the tense supply situation.

3) It’s peak season for selling Glyphosate at present. Manufacturers also have strong willing to hope obtain more profits at last quarter of the year.

4) Along with the product Paraquat 27.6% delisted from our domestic market since July 1st, Glyphosate is currently the best substitute (as Glufosinate's price still quite high) to move in to fill up the market gap of Paraquat SL. Finally, since Glyphosate price remains in low level for quite long time, price increasing trend is market-driven by Paraquat SL delisted to some degree.

Seeing from buyers

Part buyers finished purchasing plan during end August or early September, so they mainly take wait-and-see attitude on the ongoing price increase tendency.

However, according to recent market, we predict it will have big possibility of continuous price increasing, for reasons:

1) Supposed that 2nd round environmental protection supervision on 20 provinces implemented, 65% capacity will be heavily affected. The total market supply volume will reduce largely.

2) Furthermore, price of almost all raw materials including Yellow Phosphorus, Glycine, etc will maintain uptrend due to shortage. Both increasing costs of production and tense supply situation will support Glyphosate price.

3) Since it’s busy season right now, Glyphosate players are all hoping offset their loss earlier. Hence, they reach a consensus on heightening price.

Current Market Information for Glyphosate in China, Updated on Sep. 13th, 2016

This month, it seems not calm for glyphosate market.

There is one news that our EPA officers will start environment protection examination in Sichuan and Hubei provinces soon, where some major glyphosate manufacturers are located. Hence it will heavily influence the glyphosate normal production, and will also further influence the whole glyphosate market supply. Since late August, glyphosate's price began to increase. And from early September, the price was even sharply increased, which seems a little crazy as some factories adjusted price 5%-10% higher compared to the price before.

The price tendency chart as belows:

However, how long will this increasing period maintain? At present, it's difficult to estimate, the situation shall depend on the future market demand... The intention of price increasing from glyphosate producers are very strong, if the demand from market is obvious in the following weeks, then it'll push price keep increasing. Otherwise, it'll cool down...

Kind suggestion that it's better to pay close attention on the following tendency of the product if you have purchase plan in next two or three months.

 

 

Egypt 2016 International Agricultural Exhibition (29th)

: Sep. 24-27, 2016
: Cairo International Conference Center (CICC)
: Cairo-Egypt
: Expo

This is 29th International Agricultural exhibition which will influence the all North Africa and the Middle East area. The 79% visitors are come from Egypt and North Africa, the rest 21% are from the Middle East and Europe. Agriculture is the foremost industry in Egypt. It is estimated that Egypt Agrochemical market is around 1.2 billion USD, which accounts for approximately 17% among the GDP Gross of Egypt. The experts predict the agrochemical industry will increase at average annual growth rate of 5%. The abundant demand will focus on the government projects of private sector and increasing the cultivated area. Generally speaking, the agrochemicals in Egypt are mainly relied on import, while China is the biggest agrochemical producer in the world, it will create more opportunities for Chinese suppliers.

 

 

G20 Summit

The 11th G20 Summit will be hold in Hangzhou on 4th-5th, Sep. 2016. According to the plan of G20 summit constructional system and environmentally protective quality assurance, the shutdown period is clearly restricted from 26th Aug to 6th Sep. At that period, the environmental controls are expected to generate the different level influences on the all area of producing agrochemical products. As for Glyphosate industrial chain, some manufacturers will stop delivery because of the traffic control. But, the price of Glyphosate keep stable due to the less demand and the producing capacity in Zhejiang is small percentage compared the whole glyphosate’s capacity in China. According to current market situation and previous years’ experience, we estimate the purchasing season will come in the mid&end of August, wish the situation will be improved at that time.

 

 

Agrochemicals/Pesticides Marketing Information in China, Updated on Aug. 22nd, 2016

Glyphosate

  1. August is usually the hottest month in China among the year. So August is considered as the traditional equipment maintenance season for manufacturers in view of production safety.   
  2. Our central government inspection groups implemented very strict environmental protection measures in some provinces including Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Shandong, etc where the major agrochemical suppliers located. With intensive environmental protection control, the normal production and supply of agrochemicals has been affected. 
  3. G20 summit in Zhejiang heavily influences the normal production of chemical manufacturers, and the logistic transportation in Zhejiang, Jiangsu and Shandong are limited as well.
  4. Coal is main fuel for factories. Price of coal has started to heighten which will push Glyphosate production costs raised.  
  5. Glyphosate price heightened a bit this month, but we predict the market price will retrace during the late September when factories resume production.

Paraquat

  1. The manufacturers have been under annual routine equipment maintenance, which causes the market supply in tight situation.
  2. Moreover, affected by the forbidden use and sell of Paraquat SL in our domestic, the existing market supply volume is reduced.
  3. The main raw material Pyridine price is stable at present. We predict Paraquat will keep steady price tendency before AgroChemEx(ACE) in October, 2016.

Glufosinate

  1. The price is in slight uptrend since mid August, because of the reduced supply caused by G20 summit and strict environmental inspection.
  2. The factories will resume their production from mid September gradually. Additionally, the new capacity in Sichuan, etc will be scheduled to enter into the market in the 3rd or 4th quarter or the year.
