93 new registrations of insecticide technical were approved in China in 2012

According to statistics from the Institute for the Control of Agrochemicals, Ministry of Agriculture (ICAMA), there were 93 new registrations (not including the updating of the old registrations) of insecticide technical approved in China in 2012. These 93 new registrations covered 58 kinds of insecticide technical, with a total of 67 registrants from abroad and within China. Among these 58 kinds of insecticide technical, there were 51 agriculture insecticides and seven hygienic insecticides according to CCM January by Issue of Insecticides China News
Figures indicate that three neonicotinoid insecticides, namely thiamethoxam, imidacloprid and acetamiprid, were the top registrations by quantity in 2012. Of these, thiamethoxam technical was the most frequently registered, with six new registrations in 2012. Before 2012, there was one registration of thiamethoxam technical acquired by Syngenta who is the owner of the patent for thiamethoxam. With the patent expiration approaching in July 2013, thiamethoxam will continue to be registered by more and more companies in the future. It is predicted that large-scale production of thiamethoxam will be put into operation, thus the cost may decrease and the price decline. Meanwhile, soaring registrations will bring about other problems such as overcapacity and intense competition.

Except thiamethoxam, imidacloprid and acetamiprid, the registration quantity of other insecticide technicals was less than four. It is worth noticing that some insecticides were firstly registered in 2012. Most of them are new products with strong competitiveness, including cyflumetofen, cyantraniliprole, spinetoram, etoxazole, flufiprole, fufenozide, ivermectin, etc. Some of them should replace older insecticides which suffer from worsening insect resistance.

As for registrants, there are nine companies, namely, Jiangsu Changlong Chemicals Co., Ltd., Anhui Changtai Chemical Co., Ltd., Jiangsu Subin Agrochemical Co., Ltd., Mesa Tech Co., Ltd., Shangyu Nutrichem Co., Ltd., Shijiazhuang Richem Co., Ltd., Sinochem Ningbo (Lianyungang) Chemicals Co., Ltd., Zhejiang Heben Pesticide & Chemicals Co., Ltd. and Sumitomo Chemical Co., Ltd., with more than two new registrations of insecticide technical.
