China Agrochemicals Market Dynamics
Increased food demand due to high population growth, need for increased land productivity, and soil health improvement are the key factors driving the market. However, low per capita use, shrinking farm land, and low farmer awareness are some of the factors which are expected to constrain the market. Developing regions are witnessing faster demands and this acts as an opportunity for the existing companies in this market to grow and expand and other companies to enter this market.
According to Mordor Intelligence research and analysis, key players present in the Chinese agrochemical market are Chemchina, Sinofert Holdings Ltd., National Chemical Fertilizer Public Company, Bayer, and Yara International are the leading players of the China agrochemicals market. In China, companies are not only competing on new product launches, but are also focusing on strategic moves to acquire greater market share. In the domestic market, companies tend to replicate existing foreign products after patent expiry; this has led to a shortage of high quality R&D products as most Chinese agrochemical companies have a low R&D capability in relation to their international counterparts.
