The Chinese crop protection chemicals market is projected to witness a CAGR of 3.8% during the forecast period. China is the third-largest consumer of pesticides, globally, with a market value of USD 6.97 billion in 2019. Herbicides hold the major consumption share among all the crop protection chemicals with 49%. Large population, small farm sizes, food security, and the need for high farm efficiency are the prime drivers of the market. Government restrictions on synthetic chemicals and high prices are some of the market restraints.

Key Market Trends

China - Major Exporter of Crop Protection Chemicals

China is the leading producer and exporter of crop protection chemicals, globally. Herbicides accounted for over half of the exports, followed by insecticides. In 2018, the export volume decreased by 7%, while the export value increased by 17.4%. The increase in the value is mainly attributed to an increase in the prices, due to the shortage of supplies caused by stringent environmental regulations by the Chinese government. Asia-Pacific is the largest importer of Chinese pesticides, with the Southeast Asian countries accounting for 45% of the export value and 62.5% of export volume of the total exports in Asia-Pacific.

Zero Growth of Chemical Pesticide Use

In China, the consumption of pesticides had decreased significantly after 2014, and further growth was not noticed. The overuse of chemical fertilizers and pesticides has been a rising concern in China, which led the government to intervene in maintaining agricultural sustainability and the health of the ecological environment. In this regard, the Chinese government introduced “Action to Achieve Zero Growth of Pesticide Use by 2020” with an objective to achieve zero growth in the use of pesticides in the country by 2020. Owing to this, there has been a replacement in the use of high toxicity and high residue pesticides with low toxicity and low residue pesticides, such as organic pesticides and biopesticides.

Competitive Landscape

China's crop protection chemical market is highly fragmented with major players holding 15% of market share. Global crop protection chemical companies, viz, Syngenta, Bayer, BASF, and UPL, have increased their presence in China by enhancing pesticide production and through increased focus on strategic moves like mergers and acquisitions to have a strong foothold in the Chinese market. The major companies dominating the Chinese crop protection chemicals market are Nutrichem Company Limited, Shandong Weifang Rainbow Chemical Company Limited, Zhejiang Wynca Chemical Industry Group Co. Ltd, Sichuan Leshan Fuhua Tongda Agrochemical Technology Co. Ltd, etc.
