The growth rate of PF production has slowed down from 2009 to 2011, after a drastic growthfrom 2006 to 2008 thanks to the domestic flourishing glyphosate industry, one of the maindownstream industries of PF
In the glyphosate industry, PF is only applied in glycine route, which iscurrently facing intensifying competition from the other two routes, namely DEA route and IDAN route.
Currently, China’s glyphosate industry is
also facing severe challenge from the environmentalprotection since the Chinese government has issued many regulations in relation to the use of glyphosate. Given the situation, CCM forecasts that the development trend of the glycine routein China will go down, which indirectly impacts the domestic PF industry. Moreover, theproduction and market situation of the other downstream industries of PF will also be reported.For more information about
