Price & Supply: China’s pesticide technical maintains at high price level after 2018ACE

Posted on 2018-10-26
2018ACE has been held in Shanghai EXPO as planned, which has attracted full attentions from industries. The less relief of industry supply side still remains a concern, which is the main reason for the supply contradiction.
 
As the production of chemical industrial parks is recovered later than what is expected, therefore the ex-work prices remain at high level. The downstream lower return of plantation is not alleviated yet, but will surely replace the place of the source of supply of Chinese domestic pesticide formulations. Domestic market is confronted by the demand for inventory buildup, the cost of which will be passed on continuously.
 
The production shutdown requirement during the heating season of the “2+26” cities, ecological treatment along the Yangtze and the strict environmental compliance inspection in the chemical production provinces like Jiangsu Province still remain to be the main causes to restricted supplies at a later stage. The Sino-US trade conflict may not break up the business situation where the world pesticide industry relies on import of Chinese pesticides, and the pesticide technical market is expected to still remain at high price level in the short run.
