The global nematicides market was estimated at USD 1.29 billion in 2017, and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 4.6% during the forecast period (2018 - 2023). Asia-Pacific region, the largest producer of fruits & vegetables, is likely to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period. North America, and Europe accounted the largest market share, with more than 60% of the market share in 2017. It is expected that, pesticides’ ban, and market saturation would limit the market expansion in the European, and North American region.

Increasing Adoption of Bio-Based Nematicides

Bio-based nematicides or bionematicides are generally bacterial, or fungal spores along with inert materials. The microbial spores, incorporated in bionematicides germinates, and seize the growth of the nematodes. Fumigants nematicides segment is projected to command the global market with large market revenue due to huge adoption in vegetables & fruit crop production. Liquid form segment is also expected to witness higher CAGR during the forecast period. Though fumigants dominated the global nematicides market in 2016, accounting 44% of the market share, several advantages, like no residue leftover, no resistance development, and excellent activity are making the bionematicides favored in the market.

Emerging Market in Developing Countries

The growth potential for nematicides is mostly in the emerging untapped regions, such as China, India, Brazil, and African countries. The consumption of nematicides is low in these countries compared with developed nations. The increasing awareness among farmers is expected to lead to a rise in consumption pattern during the forecast period. China, and India are the two largest economies in terms of population, having a rural sector of 67%, and 44% respectively. These should be the key focus market for the nematicides players. The agricultural output of China is 140% higher than that of India, and 68% higher than that of European Union. The growing demand for food products, mainly from the developing countries is likely to propel the nematicides consumption, for healthy farm yield, and to decrease crop loss.

Increasing Seed Treatment Practices Driving Demand

Nematicides are applied to the seed, and during the growth of the crop, to protect the seeds, as well as to aid in the growth of healthier crops. The increase in the prices of high-quality seeds, such as hybrid, and genetically modified seeds, cost efficiency of seed treatment systems, limitations linked to soil structure, and temperature on the application of crop protection chemicals, and encouraging government regulations are driving the market growth for nematicides.

Key Developments in the Market

With the growing demand, the global nematicides market is experiencing a number of new product launches, mergers & acquisitions, and partnership between the global players.
  • December 2017: BASF has submitted its new Trunemco™ Nematode Management seed treatment to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for registration. Trunemco Nematode Management is a seed-applied solution that will provide growers with a patented combination of a microorganism, and a biochemical.
  • November 2017: DowDuPont™ has announced that DuPont has completed its acquisition of FMC Corporation’s Health & Nutrition business (FMC H&N), except for the Omega-3 business, and its divestment to FMC of a portion of DuPont’s Crop Protection business.
  • November 2017: Valent U.S.A. LLC announced the launch of new Aveo EZ Nematicide to help protect soybeans from yield loss caused by Soybean Cyst Nematode (SCN), Reniform nematode.
  • September 2017: American Vanguard Corporation has announced that its wholly owned subsidiary AMVAC Netherlands BV, will acquire Grupo Agricenter to reinforce its commercial, technical and development structure in the Latin-American region.
