In 2022, which pesticide varieties will be in growth opportunities? !

Insecticide (Acaricide)

The use of insecticides (Acaricides) has been declining year by year for last 10 years, and it will continue to decline in 2022. With the complete ban of the last 10 highly toxic pesticides in many countries, the substitutes for highly toxic pesticides will increase; With the gradual liberalization of genetically modified crops, the amount of pesticides will be further reduced, but overall In other words, there is not much room for further reduction of pesticides.

Organophosphate class: Due to the relatively high toxicity and low control effect of this kind of pesticides, the market demand has decreased, especially with the complete ban of highly toxic pesticides, the amount will further decline.

Carbamates class: Carbamate pesticides have the characteristics of strong selectivity, high efficiency, broad spectrum, low toxicity to humans and animals, easy decomposition and less residual toxicity, and are widely used in agriculture. Varieties with a large amount of use are: Indoxacarb, Isoprocarb, and Carbosulfan.

Indoxacarb has excellent insecticidal activity against lepidopteran pests, can control a variety of pests in various crops such as grains, fruits, and vegetables, and is environmentally friendly, and the demand continues to rise.

Synthetic Pyrethroids class: A decrease from the previous year. Beta-cyhalothrin, Lambda-cyhalothrin, and Bifenthrin will occupy a larger market share.

Neonicotinoids class:  An increase from the previous year. Imidacloprid, Acetamiprid, Thiamethoxam and Nitenpyram will occupy a larger share, while Thiacloprid, Clothianidin and Dinotefuran will increase significantly.

Bisamide class: An increase compared to the previous year. Chlorantraniliprole occupies a larger market share, and cyantraniliprole is expected to increase.

Other pesticides: Demand increased compared to the previous year. Such as Pymetrozine, Monosultap, Abamectin, etc. will occupy a larger share.

Acaricides: A decrease compared to the previous year. Among them, lime sulphur mixture, Propargite, Pyridaben, Spirotetramat, Bifenazate are in greater demand.


Fungicides usage is expected to rise in 2022.

The varieties with larger dosage are: Mancozeb, Carbendazim, Thiophanate-methyl, Tricyclazole, Chlorothalonil,

Tebuconazole, Isoprothiolane, Prochloraz, Triazolone, Validamycin, Copper hydroxide, Difenoconazole,Pyraclostrobin, Propiconazole, Metalaxyl, Azoxystrobin, Dimethomorph, bacillus subtilis, Procymidone, Hexaconazole, propamocarb hydrochloride, etc.

Varieties with an increase of more than 10% are (in descending order): Bacillus subtilis, Oxalaxyl, Pyraclostrobin, Azoxystrobin, Hosethyl-aluminum, Diconazole, Difenoconazole, Hexaconazole, Triadimenol, Isoprothiolane, Prochloraz, etc.


Herbicides have been on the rise for the past 10 years, especially to the resistant weeds.

The varieties with a total consumption of more than 2,000 tons are (in descending order): Glyphosate (ammonium salt, sodium salt, potassium salt), Acetochlor, Atrazine, Glufosinate-ammonium, Butachlor, Bentazone, Metolachlor, 2,4D, Pretilachlor.

Non-selective herbicides: After Paraquat is banned, the new contact herbicide Diquat has become a hot product because of its fast weeding speed and broad herbicidal spectrum, especially for weeds resistant to Glyphosate and Paraquat.

Glufosinate-ammonium: The acceptance of farmers is getting higher and higher, and the dosage is increasing.

New drug-resistant herbicides: the usage of Halauxifen-methyl, Quintrione, etc. has increased.
