s glyphosate industry. The upcoming webinar features the following highlights
Impacts Resulted from the Cancellation of 13% Export Rebate Rate on PMIDA
After the cancellation of 13% export rebate rate on PMIDA, Chinese PMIDA manufacturers arelikely to suffer higher export cost. In order to mitigate the cost pressure, they have to increasetheir export price. However, during the past several months, the ex-factory price and the exportprice of PMIDA in China have remained stable as the overseas demand for PMIDA is not quitelarge. Influenced by the limited overseas demand, the ex-factory price has not shown a drasticincrease. The ex-factory price fluctuated between $17,000/ton and $17,700/ton in Q1 2013.
The total A.I. volume (100% glyphosate acid equivalent) of China's exported glyphosaterelated products in Q1 2013 increased by 74% and 39% over Q1 2011 and Q1 2012, with thetotal export value up by 145% and 78% over Q1 2011 and Q1 2012 respectively.
Influenced by the financial crisis in 2008, the overseas demand for glyphosate maintainedsluggish for a certain period. In addition,
China’s glyphosate industry
encounteredovercapacity resulted from blind expansion. Under this
circumstance, China’s glyphosate
market entered a gloomy period from 2009
2011. During these three years, the glyphosateprice was generally in a rather low level. Some middle-to-small scale glyphosatemanufacturers were weeded
out of the market. China’s capacity of glyphosate also dropped to
about 650,000 tonnes.The demand for glyphosate has witnessed an uptrend since the second half year of 2012. Theglyphosate price also began to increase in the second half year of 2012. At present, theglyphosate products price remains at a high level.
Nantong Jiangshan Agrochemical & Chemicals Co., Ltd. (Nantong Jiangshan), ZhejiangWynca Chemical Industry Group Co., Ltd. (Zhejiang Wynca) and Anhui Huaxing ChemicalIndustry Co., Ltd. (Anhui Huaxing) all achieved great operating performance in 2012, thanks tothe thriving market and rising profitability of glyphosate. With the enhancing profitability of glyphosate and PMIDA business in Q1 2013, the three companies all turned loss into gain in
