China’s Glyphosate Industry Deteriorates

Guangzhou China, July 29, 2011 - The July issue of Glyphsoate China Monthly Report reveals that RMB appreciation and the rising interest rate aggravate glyphosate industry in China.

Chinese glyphosate industry suffers a lot from the decreased USD exchange rate against RMB, also called  RMB appreciation.

On July 20, 2011, the central parity exchange rate between USD and RMB dropped to 6.4592, compared with that of 6.7812 in July 20, 2010. Providing glyphosate technical price is RMB22,000/t, and the difference of one tonne of glyphosate technical is USD161.73 (22,000/6.4592 - 22,000/6.7812) when computed by the exchange rate of 6.7812 and 6.4592.
Overseas buyers are unwilling to completely burden the Chinese glyphosate exporters' loss caused by RMB appreciation or USD depreciation, and thus the loss would only be shouldered by both exporters and importers or completely burdened by the domestic manufacturers.

What’s worse, on July 6, 2011, Chinese government raised the loan interest for the third time this year, which means the production cost of glyphosate will be increased.

Providing the investment in glycine route glyphosate with capacity of 10,000t/a is USD10 million (Investment in IDAN route will be higher), and the loan interest will increase by USD0.111 million (10, 000,000 * (7.05%.-5.94)). Calculated by the current operating rate of 30%, the increased cost of one tonne of glyphosate technical caused by the increased loan interest rate could reach USD37 (111,000/3,000).

The RMB appreciation and raised loan interest rate have posed much pressure to glyphosate industry, making glyphosate technical producers harder to survive.
