PASADENA, Texas – Control Solutions and parent company, ADAMA, announced that ADAMA has begun the in-house production of indoxacarb, a key insecticide active ingredient, with its new proprietary synthesis process providing a building block for ADAMA’s differentiated formulations.
ADAMA reports that producing this complex molecule with an innovative, cost-effective process is expected to improve its supply chain performance while opening access to a global market of approximately $200 million of indoxacarb sales as of 2021. ADAMA has launched a number of unique mixtures and formulations based on indoxacarb, which deliver significant pest control in a variety of affected crops and countries, as well as for pest professionals.
“With its vast global market potential, we identified Indoxacarb as a key building block for ADAMA's future differentiated product pipeline,” said Elad Shabtai, EVP Global Operations at ADAMA. “This new in-house production capability of indoxacarb is expected to improve the company's control over the availability, quality and cost of this important active ingredient. Moreover, our Indoxacarb formulations deliver powerful solutions, thus combining our AI cost position with superior product features on the formulation side."
ADAMA is targeting more than 15 countries with its self-produced indoxacarb, including leading markets in the USA, Brazil, and India. It is a key active ingredient for various insecticides, including ADAMA’s products Plethora (India, Brazil), Plemax (Australia, South Africa) and DOXEM (USA).
