Despite the disappointing pesticide market and slower growth in China, novel pesticides are achieving fast growth. Phenamacril, dufulin, thiediazole copper, zinc thiazole are key examples.
Powdery mildew is a worldwide fungal disease that is difficult to deal with. It affects a wide range of crops and strikes frequently and heavily. In China, the occurrence of powdery mildew is frequent and the number of pesticides used to prevent and control powdery mildew is large. There is still a huge potential in developing fungicides for combating powdery mildew.
In Dec. 2015, the ex-works price of carbendazim technical declines month on month, but it still remains high. Since Jan., its price maintained high level under the environmental pressure. Pressured by economic downturn, weak demand, increasing cost and environmental protection, pesticide industry is struggling for development in 2015. Under such circumstances, some domestic pesticide enterprises fully comprehend the market conditions and tap their core competencies to make products, in order to get rid of the adverse circumstances and achieve performance growth.
Changing demand for pesticide impels to domestic agrochemical enterprises increase investment in the R&D of environmental-friendly pesticide formulation. Faced this opportunity, lots of enterprises, by making full use of the tremendous capital market, quicken the technological innovation of pesticides formulation to consolidate their competitiveness in this industry.
At the end of Nov. 2015, Jiangxi Heyi was allowed to be listed on NEEQ, indicating that it successfully entered capital market. This enables the company use reliable capital platform for fundraising. According to China Customs and the author, Jiangyin Suli was the top-1 exporter of chlorothalonil TC in China from Jan. to Oct. 2015. Jiangyin Suli has held a leading position in recent years.
At the beginning of Dec. 2015, Jiangsu Fengdeng obtained a formal registration of 98% cyprodinil technical from ICAMA. It is the first Chinese enterprise to gain a registration of cyprodinil technical. In recent years, tebuconazole has become a hot registered active ingredient in Chinese seed treatment market. Not only single formulations but also mixed formulations witness a surge in registration. Tebuconazole has become a popular active ingredient among the market.
As of 18 Dec., 2015, a total of 32 enterprises have applied for field trials of 42 tetraconazole products (including technical and formulations) in China. It's predicted that the registration number of tetraconazole products will be on the rise.
In Jan.-Nov. 2015, the imports and exports of pesticide recorded declines in volume and price. This was the first double-falling in both imports and exports in recent five years. Notably, the export proportion of pesticide formulation is increasing year by year, becoming the pillar in export market. By contrast, the export proportion of pesticide technical is decreasing.

In Dec. 2015, Qian Xuhong, Professor of East China University of Science and Technology,revealed that it has developed a novel pesticide-Y13149 and transferred to Beijing Yoloo Bio-technology Co., Ltd. for industrialized production.
Y13149 (application number: 201310502473.7) is a kind of SDHI (succinate dehydrogenase inhibitors) fungicide. It has good efficacy in fighting rice sheath blight and has high fungicidal activity to potato late blight.
Characterized with broad spectrum and fungicidal activity, SDHI fungicide is capable of preventing and controlling many diseases that infect crops, and has become one of most important fungicides. It is a research focus among pesticide enterprises. To date, field trials and registration for Y13149 have not approved. Industry insiders take optimistic attitude towards its prospects.
Stimulated by market demand and governmental supportive policies, large number of pesticide enterprises have a real enthusiasm for innovation. Some of new fungicide varieties have been researched successfully, which are registered and applied. In particular, the registration number of novel fungicides is growing sharply in this year. As of end of Sept., ZJ0712, fluoride ether bacteria amide, B2-a (including technical and formulations) have been registered in China. Some of them hit the market. The author will follow up the novel fungicide dynamics.
