Lier Chemical has adopted an active market strategy, and sales revenue in the first half of 2019 has achieved rapid growth every year.

However, the price cuts of some major products, the increase in operating costs of the Guang’an base, and the rise in the prices of some raw materials have affected the company’s main product profit margins and the company’s performance has declined.

  Lier’s chemical products are rich in structure, covering three major series of herbicides, fungicides, pesticides, a total of more than 30 kinds of original drugs, more than 100 kinds of preparations and some chemical intermediates.

The company’s glufosinal, formaldehyde, and scopolamine are the first in the country in terms of production and sales, and the long-term outlook is positive.

Affected by fierce competition in the industry, the price of glufosinate has recently fluctuated, causing disturbance to the company’s operations.

The company has solved major 杭州夜网论坛 engineering technical problems such as format reaction control and amplification in glufosinate formaldehyde production.
