In 2015, China's glyphosate market continues to remain in downturn. What's worse, the development of domestic glyphosate enterprises also get stuck in bottleneck. Sun Shubao, President of China Crop Protection Industry Association pointed out that the stagnant glyphosate industry was affected by many factors. Of these, the falling grain price and oil price are the major factors leading to decreasing demand for glyphosate. In addition, the improving glyphosate resistance, the policy on zero growth of pesticide consumption and the dissenting voices from the international market all limit the development of glyphosate.
2015 is coming to an end, but the glyphosate market still not encounter any favorable factors yet. The 2015 market will end with price drops. In the second half of Dec., the market still remains in downturn and the price continues dropping. At present, part of glyphosate purchasers still hold wait-and-see attitude towards the glyphosate market. Most of glyphosate AS processors purchase based on actual demand due to less orders currently. Some of them even suspend production of related glyphosate products to cope with the market downturn. Part of enterprises reflected that at present, domestic orders are relatively less and purchases at home and abroad have low enthusiasm for purchasing. Purchasers want to further lower the transaction price in the face of the declining glyphosate price. But suppliers are unwilling to reduce the price. The market has been deadlocked. Since the overseas market is still undergoing the Christmas holiday, it is predicted that the market turnover of glyphosate will be weak. Purchasers are still expecting for the price reduction.
