What Investment Opportunities in China’s Paraquat Market?

Paraquat, a broad-spectrum non-selective herbicide widely used to kill unwanted plants both in agricultural and nonagricultural landscapes, has been in a leading position in the world's herbicides in the past few years. It is the second largest herbicide in terms of consumption volume (calculated by 42% TK), only behind glyphosate.

China’s paraquat industry has developed rapidly in recent years, with technical output growing with a CAGR of over 20% during 2006-2010. However, the annual growth rate drops sharply in 2011. What is the reason of the slowed-down growth rate? What is the development trend in the future? China’s paraquat industry is under intense competition. Will China's production of paraquat further concentrate in the future? What kind of enterprises will hold dominant positions in China's paraquat production?

China is a major paraquat export country, and over 80% of its paraquat output is exported to counties all over the world. Where are the paraquat products exported to? What’s the trend of overseas demand? Will the export market of paraquat in China continue enlarging in the future years?

In order to ensure safe production and use of paraquat in domestic market, Chinese government has issued a notice to take restrictive management measures on paraquat, namely Notice No. 1745. What kind of effect will it have on China’s paraquat industry? How is the reaction of paraquat suppliers in China?

As China’s paraquat has been playing a crucial role in global market and its eye-catching performance under current global financial crisis will continue in the future, what kind of investment opportunities exist in Chinese market?
