China: production of chemical pesticides by month 2012-2012

The graph shows the production of chemical pesticides in China from January 2012 to July 2020. In July 2020, around 0.17 million metric tons of chemical pesticides had been produced in China.

Pesticide production in China

China’s chemical pesticide production amounted to an annual production volume of about 2.2 million tons in 2019. The import volume of pesticides to China maintained a steady growth and reached over 79 thousand tons in 2018 with an import value of over 689 million U.S. dollars that year. However, this figure was still insignificant compared to the export value of China pesticide manufacturing industry.

In 2015, China’s pesticide export value had already reached around 32 billion yuan. While state-owned pesticide manufacturers were the main contributors to exports, private pesticide manufacturing companies accounted for the highest total sales. As a leading state-owned company in this industry, Sinochem Group had recorded a revenue of more than 52 billion yuan, with a net profit of over 1.6 billion yuan in 2019.

Among Chinese farmers and agricultural businesses, the utilization of pesticide in China differed greatly from region to region. Shandong, Henan and Hubei were the provinces that used the most pesticide, consuming almost 400,000 tons together in 2016, whereas the provinces of Tibet, Qinghai and Ningxia had utilized less than 6,000 tons of pesticide that year.
