Decreasing Jingangmycin Market Share in China

Market share of jingangmycin, which is an antibiotics fungicide and has dominated domestic rice sheath blight control market for almost 30 years, has been gradually shrinking in Chinese main rice planting areas in recent years mainly due to its decreasing control effect and thinner profits, as well as the competition from other products, according to CCM’s September Issue of Fungicides China News.

With good control effect on rice sheath blight in the early stage of application, jingangmycin become popular among domestic producers since 1970s. The output of jingangmycin (calculated by 5% AS, similarly hereinafter) had increased in China over the last few decades, especially in the late 1980s.

However, the decreasing control effect on rice sheath blight is one of the key factors leading to the market shrinkage of jingangmycin. After several decades of successive use, the control effect of jingangmycin 5% AS against rice sheath blight has been reduced from about 90% to 65%.

Moreover, the persistent period of jingangmycin has also been shortened by around 65% to 7 days from original 20 days. Last but not least, many domestic dealers and retailers are reluctant to sell jingangmycin mainly due to the decreasing profit, which has hindered the development of jingangmycin accordingly.

Actually, some domestic producers of jingangmycin technical have gradually cut back or stopped their production in consideration of the shrinking market. It is estimated that the output of jingangmycin in China will continue to go down to a certain extent in the near future with the gradual reduction of jingangmycin production; the situation of the shrinking market share for this biological fungicide will remain grim.
