2018ACE  was held at Shanghai EXPO, as planned, which attracted much attention from the industry . The minimal relief in the industry's supply side still remains a concern, which is the main reason for the  ongoing contradictions in supply.
 
As production at chemical industrial parks recovered later than was expected, ex-work prices remain at high levels. Also, the  lower return of downstream plantations has not yet been alleviated , but will surely replace the source of supplies for Chinese domestic pesticide formulations. Further, the domestic market is confronted by the demand for  a buildup of inventories, the cost of which will be continuously passed on .
 
The  requirement for a shutdown  of production during the heating season of the “2+26” cities, as well as ecological treatment along the Yangtze, and strict environmental compliance inspections in chemical production provinces, such as in Jiangsu Province, still continue  to be the main causes restricting supplies at a later stage. The Sino-US trade conflict may not harm business, in which  the world pesticide industry relies on imports of Chinese pesticides, and the pesticide technical market is expected to remain at high price levels, in the short run.
