It was also noticed that around 10 readers asked about it and there were 225 search records in the "China Pesticides Exporting System". The price of Difenoconazole is rising and most of the suppliers only support order forms.
China's total export value was US$76 million, $81 million, and $86 million, respectively, from 2017-2019. This can be concluded as follows:
-There were 43 Chinese suppliers in the Vietnam market, and over 20 suppliers joined the other top countries. The competition among suppliers was tough, but on the other hand, monopoly appears in those markets with fewer suppliers. Detailed data has to be viewed on concrete issues.
-Vietnam was the No. 1 Difenoconazole importing country, and yet, somehow, its purchase amount declined yearly.
-Top countries such as Vietnam and Turkey, which imported Difenoconazole from China, witnessed a change, with them starting to order from India.
-The new markets appearing were Poland, Latvia and Peru.
-China limited the production of the intermediate of Difenoconazole due to pollution issues which created opportunities for India's intermediates manufacturers, even with keen competition.
