China’s Insecticide Market to Recover Gradually in H2 2011

Guangzhou China, August 15, 2011 CCM has released the August issue of Insecticides China News, pointing out that China’s insecticide market is expected to recover gradually in H2 2011, and even grow compared with that in H2 2010.

The sales volume of most insecticides declined significantly due to the drought in H1 2011. Until June 2011, China’s insecticide market began to recover as the rainfall brought about severe occurrence of insect pests of rice, cotton and corn.   

The occurrence of rice insect pests in H2 2011 is estimated to be worse, which will greatly boost the market demand for rice insecticides like imidacloprid. According to National Agricultural Technology Extension Service Center (NATESC), occurrence of mid-season and late rice insect pests is estimated to hit 49.33 million hectares in H2 2011. The technical consumption of rice insecticides is estimated to exceed 20,000 tonnes in 2011, including chlorpyrifos, imidacloprid, triazophos, DDVP, dimehypo, monosultap, acephate and mobucin, according to NATESC.

Besides rice pests, the occurrence of corn insect pests in H2 2011 is estimated to be worse over last year, with damaged area reaching around 44.13 million hectares. In 2011, the occurrence of athetis lepigone, an emerging corn insect pests, gets much severer than that of the average year, which is estimated to strike 2.14 million hectares' fields. Insecticides that can efficiently control corn insect pests will be welcomed by farmers in H2 2011, like DDVP, chlorpyrifos, phoxim, deltamethrin and Bt.  

Last but not least, the occurrence of cotton insect pests will also make contribution to insecticide market in H2 2011. Learning from NATESC, the occurrence of cotton insect pests in H2 2011 will be severer than that in H1 2011 as estimated, hitting around 13.33 million hectares. It is estimated that cotton insecticides like carbosulfan, acetamiprid, DDVP, cyhalothrin and trichlorphon will continue to enjoy rise in demand in H2 2011 and some may witness supply shortage, such as carbosulfan and acetamiprid.
