June 1, 2016
By Business Wire News


Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Insecticides China News” newsletter to their offering.

In April 2016, China’s pesticide market remains sluggish because the depressed agriculture industry seriously restrains the terminal demand for pesticides and the southern flood and northern drought also prevent distributors from consuming the inventory.

The insecticide market is in a bad shape with poor transaction.

– Pyrethroids

The price of upstream products 3,3-dimethyl-4-pentenoic acid methyl ester remains stable while that of m-Phenoxybenzaldehyde declines slightly. The prices of downstream products are also steady with poor transaction. It is predicted that de-stocking is still the main focus in the pyrethroid insecticide market.

– Organophosphates

Affected by high inventory and the stock-up of traders in earlier stage, the market of chlorpyrifos remains week. In addition, since the manufacturers of organophosphate insecticides are highly concentrated, they firmly increase prices.

– Nicotiniums

The prices for nicotinium insecticides are favorable while the demand is average.
