Key Players in Agrochemicals Market: 


Key players in the India Pyrethroids market:

In 2019, Heranba Industries Limited dominated the India pyrethroids market, accounting for a share of 19.5% of the total Indian pyrethroids production values.

Heranba Industries Ltd was followed by Tagros Chemicals (14.8%), Hemani Industries (9.9%), Dhanuka Agritech (8.7%), Insecticides (India)(7.9%), Syngenta India (6.2%), Sumitomo Chemical India (5.8%), UPL Limited (4.2%), Bayer CropScience (3.9%), Rallis India (3.6%), Excel Crop Care (3.4%) and Others (12.1%).



China moving away from Chemical Industries:

India has emerged as the largest pyrethroid manufacturer over the years. More than half of the global demand for Pyrethroids comes from China, after importing intermediates from India, which is used to produce pyrethroid.

Yet China’s adoption of the’ Blue Sky’ program to realize green GDP has led to the shutdown of several chemical plants. This, in turn, is expected to result in higher volumes of Pyrethroids being exported out of India.



Entering the highly regulated markets of USA and Europe.

Company’s International Distribution Partner in the USA has also applied for registration of Lambda Cyhalothrin Technical manufactured by Heranba Industries Ltd as another source of supply to their existing registration for this product.
