Top 10 Pesticide Enterprises in China in 2016 06-20-2016

Based on total pesticide revenue of the enterprises in 2015, China Crop Protection Industry Association (CCPIA) published the 2016 List of Top 100 Pesticide Enterprises in China. Here, CCM presents you the rank of Top 10 Pesticide Enterprises in China from CCPIA’s list.


The total combined revenue of these top 10 pesticide enterprises reached USD4.634 billion, down 8% YoY compared to that of the top 10 pesticide enterprises in the 2015 List. Of the top 10, 5 recorded falling revenues, 4 had increasing revenues and the remaining 1 was a newcomer to the list.


On the 2016 List, the top three enterprises were the same as on the 2015 List, but ranked differently. Nanjing Redsun Co., Ltd. climbed to the top from No.3 with a revenue of USD569 million (down by 1.47% YoY), followed by Zhejiang Wynca Chemical Group Co., Ltd. (Zhejiang Wynca, USD546 million, down by 11.86% YoY) and Nutrichem Co., Ltd. (USD535 million, down by 12.06% YoY).




Zhejiang Wynca’s decreasing revenue in 2015 was mainly because of the low glyphosate price. Many domestic pesticide enterprises that were engaged in the production of glyphosate suffered a significant decline in revenue, such as Fuhua Tongda Agro-chemical Technology Co., Ltd., Jiangsu Good Harvest-Weien Agrochemical Co., Ltd., Zhejiang Wynca, Hubei Sanonda Co., Ltd., and Shandong Weifang Rainbow Chemical Co., Ltd.


However, Jiangsu Yangnong Chemical Co., Ltd. was also mainly engaged in the production of glyphosate but losses from its glyphosate business in 2015 were offset by revenue from its hygienic insecticide business and income from new projects of its subsidiary, Jiangsu Youjia Crop Protection Co., Ltd.


As for the newcomer, Sinochem Agro, which ranked 15th on the 2015 List, and Sinochem Crop Protection Co., Ltd. (Sinochem Crop Protection), are both subsidiaries of Sinochem International Corporation. After business integration in 2015, Sinochem Crop Protection became the controlling shareholder of Sinochem Agro and ranked 8th on the 2016 List with a revenue of USD422 million.


In fact, the domestic pesticide market grew slower than in previous years in China. Combined total revenue of the 829 pesticide enterprises with an annual revenue of over RMB20 million from their main business operations hit USD49.90 billion, with a YoY growth rate of 1.88%;


There are some factors behind the falling pesticide market in 2015, such as the downturn in the global pesticide market and the depressed herbicide market in China. To be more specific, according to Phillips McDougall, a crop protection research company, the total revenue from the global pesticide industry in 2015 reached USD58.18 billion, down by 8% YoY. During 2011-2015, output of herbicide technical took up roughly 50% of the total pesticide technical output every year in China. However, herbicide price in 2015 was low, especially that of glyphosate and paraquat, leading to a huge hit to the China’s pesticide industry.

Against such circumstances, some enterprises, Jiangsu Huifeng Agrochemical Co., Ltd., managed to make increasing revenue thanks to their balanced product structure and their innovative marketing methods. In general, performance of China’s pesticide industry in 2015 was worse than that in previous years, but many domestic enterprises are still be able to achieve progress.


Predicting the ranking list in 2017, Li Biyan, agrichemical researcher of CCM, stated that: “It is not likely that these 10 pesticide enterprises would edge out of the ranking list as they are all leading pesticide enterprises in China.”
