Imported Rice Insecticide Outshines Chinese Rice Insecticide

CCM’s October Issue of Insecticides China News has been released recently. The news of rice insecticide catches people’s eyes.

Imported rice insecticides, with stronger market demand and higher market price, turn out to be the winner in the competition with domestic rice insecticides. The pests' strong resistance against most home-made rice insecticides makes farmers turn to imported products, which has a direct effect on the consumption of home-made rice insecticides this year.

In 2011, imported rice insecticides enjoy higher market demand than home-made rice insecticide in Chinese market. It is reported that the total consumption of imported insecticides in China has posted a YoY growth of around 30% as of Sept. 2011, while that of home-made ones has witnessed a YoY decline of about 20%. Imported rice insecticides have a pretty good performance this year.

Besides, though imported rice insecticides are expensive, farmers in some rice planting areas like Hunan Province still prefer to apply them. The market price of imported rice insecticides largely increases in 2011, with most seeing YoY growth ranging from 5%-20% as investigated. According to Mr. Li, a pesticide dealer in Hunan Province, the market demand for imported rice insecticides, especially DuPont's chlorantraniliprole, is stronger than that for home-made kinds this year; the market price of most imported varieties increases, while most home-made ones' just keep stable. The average market price of 20% chlorantraniliprole SC in 5 ml package is about USD1.25/bag (RMB8/bag) in Jan.-Sept. 2011, which was USD1.12/bag (RMB7.5/bag) in 2010; average market price of 2% abamectin EC in 300 ml package remains stable at around USD2.65/bottle (RMB17/bottle) in Jan.-Sept. 2011.

The competition between imported and home-made rice insecticides in 2011 will be over soon. It is obvious that imported rice insecticide outshines domestic ones. But a new round of rivalry will start again and the future result might be reversed.
