As a good guide for pesticide companies who are interested in commercial development of coming off-patent products, this report is the publisher's fifth edition report on coming off-patent agrochemicals in the world.
This report contains profiles of 33 active ingredients (13 herbicides, 7 insecticides, 12 fungicides and 1 safener) whose patents will expire in 2018–2023.
Among the 33 active ingredients, none of the two, namely flufenpyr-ethyl, pyrifluquinazon, had been registered in 15 target countries as of July 2018, while ten of them had been registered in equal to or more than ten countries among the 15 target ones.
Among the 15 target countries, there were three countries where at least 20 active ingredients were registered as of July 2018-Australia, Canada and China.
The data from various channels have been combined to make this report as precise and scientific as possible. Throughout the process, a series of internal discussions were held in order to analyse the data and draw conclusions from it.

In a word, it will be a huge market with tremendous commercial value.
As for each active ingredient, this report introduces its basic information, chemical structure, history, application, physical & safety data, patent information, registration information in 15 target countries (Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Denmark, Finland, France, Greece, the Netherlands, South Africa, Switzerland and Uruguay), etc.
Readers of this report can:
