Impact of Environmental Policies on Pesticides in China Edition (1)
- Report Description Table of Contents
In recent years, with the overall implementation of the state's sustainable development strategy, China steps up environmental improvement by introduction of series of increasingly stringent environmental protection policies, measures and plans, which sweep across the whole countrymany enterprises including those of the pesticide industry have been fined or have to restrict or suspend production. When comes to pesticide industry, despite the high requirement for environmental protection due to the large amount of water, gas and solid wastes generated in the production process, some pesticide enterprises seek profits and fail to spend on necessary environmental protection, defying the related environmental protection laws and regulations. They obtain certain market shares with the advantage of low cost by polluting the environment. Unfair competition between enterprises who follow the law and those who don't restricts the healthy development of the industry. Environmental protection policies, measures and plans that come into force successively will have significant influences on the country's pesticide industry.
Under the strict environmental protection policies, there are opportunities for relatively strong pesticide companies. In the pesticide market, where prices have risen sharply in 2017, they have achieved growth in both operating revenue and profits through environmental protection reforms, technology upgrades and effective cost control. Moreover, as enterprises which failed to meet the environmental protection standards withdraw from the market, these powerful enterprises that meet the environmental standards will gain more market share. For small plants, environmental protection policies bring more challenges.
What are the major environmental protection policies in China? How these policies affect China's pesticide market? In this report, CCM introduces the polices and their influences from the aspects of production, sales, exports, prices, supply and demand of pesticides.
