Generic products accounted for about 46% of the total pesticide market in 2004, which went up to about 70% in 2017, and is still growing at 1-2% every year up to 2020. At the same time, the global market share of generic product manufacturers increased from 15.6% in 2003 to 23.9% in 2017.

The market share of worldwide patented pesticides is shrinking, which is mainly attributable to the increasing difficulty in pesticide invention. The number of novel active ingredients released each year is on the rise, but it is still far lower than the peak time in the 1990s. The dropping market share of patented pesticides has become an indisputable fact.

In such a market context, off-patent pesticides are attracting more and more attentions. China has a large share of generic pesticides. In the six years from 2016 to 2021, there are expirations of a total of 26 patented pesticide compounds in China, which cover 8 fungicides, 5 insecticides, 12 herbicides and 1 safener (Table 1). According to AgroPages' database China Pesticide Registration Watch, out of the 26 products, Chinese manufacturers hold 11 product registrations. Products with hot development and registration include penoxsulam, fluopicolide, spirotetramat , metamifop, topramezone, pinoxaden(Table 2).
