Herbicide is the best performing sector in domestic pesticide industry this year.
According to data from the China Customs, in the first three quarters of 2013, China’s
herbicide export value witnessed a year on year increase of 46.83%, thanks to the
significant increase in the export volume (YoY growth of 30.91%) and higher export price.
Glyphosate, the largest consumed herbicide in the world, contributed the most to China’s
herbicide export during this period, whose export volume and export price both witnessed
significant increase.

However, glyphosate gradually enters a declining tendency and is not likely to turn
around in a short term. Tempted by high profitability of glyphosate related products, more
and more small and medium glyphosate manufacturers resumed or increased their glyphosate
production. Besides, demand for glyphosate is currently weak in Dec., according to the
feedback from some glyphosate suppliers.

On the other hand, the price of paraquat TK, a major downstream product of pyridine,
has continued to surge recently. On Nov. 20, 2013, MOFCOM released the final decision to
impose anti-dumping duties on pyridine originating from India and Japan.
