2017 China top 100 pesticide technical and top 50 formulation companies released Recently, the list of the 2017 China top 100 pesticide technical companies and top 50 formulation companies was unveiled by the China Crop Protection Industry Association (CCPIA). The list was developed based upon 2016 sales statistics of participating companies. 
 
The global pesticide industry in 2016 was rather depressed, which was also the case in the Chinese market. Although the business performance of pesticide technical manufacturers was, in general, not bad, yet enterprises appeared to be obviously polarized. Profits of formulations manufacturers suffered continual drops, which imposed a bottleneck for these companies as they sought to develop more business.

Nutrichem ranked no. 1 on the list, with sales of 4.549 billion yuan, followed by Rainbow Chemical and Fuhua Tongda Agro-chemical Technology, with respective sales of 3.751 billion yuan and 3.664 billion yuan.
 
The top 100 pesticide sales companies performed quite well in 2016, as total sales reached 109.873 billion yuan, a 5.81 percent increase year on year. The entry level for the top 100 dropped from 320 million yuan last year down to 303 million yuan, a 5.31 percent decrease year on year. 
 
There was an obvious polarization in the pesticide industry last year, for reasons such as the business downturn, environmental pressures, the impact of paraquat policies and corporate restructuring activities. There were 39 companies that reported sales of Yuan 1 billion, just one less than last year. The total sales of the top 10 companies reached 31.992 billion yuan, a 10.86 percent increase year on year. The ranking of the top 10 companies changed significantly, as the top 3 changed positions. Also, Fuhua Tongda and Nantong Jiangshan stepped into the top 10 rankings.
