Date of publication: June 15, 1994

Author: David D. Murray


This paper outlines a regional analysis of the off-patent manufacture of agrochemicals in Europe, the Far East and Latin America. The volumes of sales turnover produced by this manufacturing sector are identified, and the range of chemical types being produced. Individual examples are given to highlight the effect that this additional production base can have on supply and pricing, as well as an indication of the range of actives still in short-term development.
