In terms of rice sheath blight's control, the market share of jingangmycin has been graduallyshrinking in Chinese major rice planting areas in recent years, suffering carve-up to a great extentfrom other fungicides mainly including hexaconazole, tebuconazole, polyoxin,propoconazole•difenoconazole, etc.As to fungicide categories, triazole fungicides, which play an increasingly important role in thedisease control on various crops, have been selling well in domestic market in 2011. Theconsumption volume of triazole fungicides with broad spectrum and high efficiency has exceeded10,000 tonnes in China last year, accounting for about 15% of the total sales volume of allfungicides. Thereinto, tebuconazole, propiconazole and triadimefon were the top three triazolefungicide varieties in China in 2011 by market value.Meanwhile, some overseas companies' fungicides have seized larger market share in China lastyear, thanks to their excellent control effect, vigorous promotion and sound brand image, such aspyraclostrobin•metiram 60% WDG, pyraclostrobin 250g/L EC, kresoxim-methyl•boscalid 300g/LSC, azoxystrobin 250g/L SC, difenoconazole•azoxystrobin 325g/L SC,trifloxystrobin•tebuconazole 75% WDG and so forth.In 2012, the demand for fungicides will increase in China and is predicted to reach about 78,100tonnes, up 7.26% compared with that in 2011. However, the market competition of fungicides willbe more and more brutal due to the expanded capacity, the price hike of most raw materials andthe forceful impact from multinational enterprises in the future.
