Bayer’s Pesticide Market Increases Slightly by 7 Percent Bisnis Indonesia, page T7, 2005-07-20
Bayer CropScience, a sub-division of PT Bayer Indonesia, underwent domestic market segment increase of 7 percent for the pesticide market for the first semester of 2005. The not so significant growth is due to the specific nature of the industry. Demands from domestic industries are relatively flat and do not grow as fast as other industries. This is related to volume export that is not as abundant as other countries. Stable growth in this field can be acquired due to good climate, stable political condition and supportive government policies.
