Although it's hard to get every glyphosate manufacturer's actual output, the export volume from companies exporting glyphosate is a good reference for estimating the industrial concentration of Chinese glyphosate industry, as more than 83% of China's glyphosate products have been exported in the past ten years. In 2011, China has exported about 300,000 tonnes of glyphosate technical, which is estimated to account for 85% of China's total output.
In 2010, the total export volume of glyphosate A.I. manufactured by the top six companies accounted for 55.5%-61.3% of China's total exports (interval value is given because manufacturers of some records can't be identified).
But in 2011, the total export volume of glyphosate A.I. manufactured by the top six companies has taken up 66.5%-69.6% of China's total glyphosate A.I. exports.
In terms of export volume, the share of the top 10 glyphosate manufacturers accounted for 69.5%-76.8% in 2010, whilst the top 10 took up 82.4%-86.2% in 2011.
According to CCM International's analysis, glyphosate products exported in 2010 are manufactured by 54 manufacturers, and glyphosate products exported in 2011 are manufactured by 45 manufacturers.
The increase in industrial concentration has reflected the integration process of Chinese glyphosate industry, and there will be smaller and smaller space for the less competitive glyphosate manufacturers. It's predicted that industrial concentration will continue to increase in 2012, and there will be a more rational market.
