Chinese Glyphosate Market Analysis & Forecast 2018-2022: Transgenic Crop Cultivation Area is Expanding -


The "Research
Report on China's Glyphosate Industry - 2018-2022"
report has
been added to's offering.

At present, the global glyphosate production capacity concentrates in
China. In 2017, the global glyphosate production capacity was 1,065,000
tons, including 380,000 tons of Monsanto and 685,000 tons of Chinese
enterprises. Due to China's supply-side reform and environmental
supervision, China's glyphosate industry is more integrated and

There is a stable increase in global transgenic crop cultivation area in
recent years. In 2016, the transgenic crop cultivation area was 190
million hectares, increasing by 3% YOY. Correspondingly, the global
sales of glyphosate exceeded USD 5 billion in 2017.

China is a major glyphosate exporter in the world. Over 80% of
China-made glyphosate is exported to account for over 60% of the global
supply. The output of glyphosate in China increased from 316,000 tons in
2010 to about 505,000 tons in 2017. In 2017, China exported over 300,000
tons of glyphosate technical, which satisfied more than half of the
global glyphosate demand.

The global glyphosate demand will continue to grow in the future as the
continued expansion of transgenic crop cultivation area broadens the
market space of glyphosate. In addition, China has forbidden the use of
highly toxic herbicides such as paraquat but the transgenic crop
cultivation area is expanding. Therefore, the domestic glyphosate demand
will also continue to grow.
