In March, the prices of insecticides technical and related raw materials increased. Some technical and intermediates remained low
operating rates; moreover, their inventories were also in low levels. Formulations enterprises were careful in purchasing, waiting for
more stable market conditions.
ADAMA has successfully obtained regulatory approval for its proprietary nematicide, NIMITZ®, in Brazil. Jiangsu Flag has
completed the first announcement on the results of environmental impact assessments for its 5,800 t/a pesticides technical
technological upgrading project. Jiangsu Changqing's financial performance further improved in 2017, thanks to the increased
prices of its leading products. Yingde Greatchem exported 1 82,1 31 kg of cypermethrin in 2017, up by roughly 130% YoY. BSM
Chemical has obtained the registration of methoxyfenozide TC in China, and the project has also started. It is likely to be a leading
methoxyfenozide producer in the future.
Local governments continued to carry out special work safety inspections. Hebei Province will see stricter environmental policies in
2018: not only the "2+26" cities but also counties/districts will be covered, and all of them will be ranked based on the air quality
In terms of registration, 20 insecticides technical were registered in China by 17 enterprises, with nine active ingredients covered.
