As sales season is approaching,insecticide like acetamiprid and imidacloprid performance may be used “very active” to describe.Acetamiprid tech have raised from 10200/ton in March to 140000/ton (RMB),monthly increased by 30%.
Because the imidacloprid and acetamiprid uses the same equipment to sythesis,and imidacloprid is more profitable and economical for the formulator,also China had a extremely cold spring this year,and imidacloprid performed well in this temperature,so they have purchased the imidacloprid from March.This resulted in significant price suppression on acetamiprid.
Acetamiprid price remain low until the whether get warmer,because at ordinary temperature,acetamiprid is more efficient than imidacloprid, so the price of acetamiprid is all the way raise
Another reason has to do with increased prices for acetamiprid is exporting. This is because countries like Brazil have more and more strict regulations on high-toxic pesticide like Dichlorvos, so neonicotinoid insecticide like acetamiprid and imidacloprid became good substitute .As exporting volume increase,the price up.
