Paraquat, a broad-spectrum non-selective herbicide widely used to kill unwanted plants both in agricultural and nonagricultural landscapes, has been at 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 TK output growing with a CAGR of over 17% during 2008-2012. However, the annual growth rate dropped sharply in 2011 while it increased by about 14% in 2012. What is the reason behind the fluctuant growth rate? What is its development trend in the future? China’s paraquat industry is under intense competition. Will the production of paraquat concentrate further 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 China-made paraquat products exported to? What’s the trend of the overseas demand? Will the export market of paraquat in China continue to enlarge in the future years?
In order to ensure safe production and use of paraquat in the domestic market, the Chinese government has issued a series of restrictive management measures on paraquat. What kind of effects will they exert on China’s paraquat industry? What specific measures will paraquat suppliers in China take in response to them?
This report, based on five-year research experience in China’s paraquat industry and its upstream sectors, will provide an in-depth analysis on China’s current paraquat industry and future trends, in terms of governmental policies, raw material supply, technology innovation, waste treatment, producer, production, consumption, export, pricing, forecast, etc.
Penetrating into China’s paraquat market, this report not only updates all the data needed to 2013, but also strengthens the following aspects:
• All the data related to paraquat industry in the past have been updated with a higher accuracy;
• The differences between various regions and crops are focused more in the survey of the domestic consumption of paraquat in this edition compared with the previous edition, so the results are much closer to the truth.
What can you benefit from this report?
As China’s paraquat has been playing a crucial role in the global market and its eye-catching performance under the recovering global economy will continue in the future, investment opportunities do exist in the Chinese market. The updated report will provide much more useful information to senior executives and decision makers who are seeking for investment opportunities within the industry.
Furthermore, this report, covering the whole industrial chain of paraquat, will also provide useful information to upstream producers, as it analyzed raw material production and supply situation in details, thus bringing unexpected benefits to those players.
