The Asia-Pacific Nematicides Market was valued at USD 211.1 million in 2017 and is expected to register a CAGR of 6.3% during the forecast period (2018-2023). China is the largest market share holder of nematicides in Asia-Pacific region followed by India and Japan.

Nematicides refer to chemicals available to growers for nematode control, and the formulations and application techniques utilized by growers in order to maximize nematode control and eliminate possible environmental contamination. Nematicides could be naturally occurring plant or animal products, as well as new types of synthetic chemicals that degrade into harmless materials already present in soil. The major chemical nematicides presently available in market includes 1, 3-dichloropropene, metam sodium, methyl bromide, aldicarb, oxamyl, ethoprop and fenamiphos. Most of these may face additional future restrictions.

The Major Consuming Nematicide by Type - Fumigants
The Asia-Pacific market for fumigants as nematicides was USD 95.0 million in the year 2017 with a CAGR growth of 6.4%.Soil fumigation is the most widely accepted practice for crop treatment against nematodes. Meloidogyne, Heterodera, Tylenchulus, Rotylenchulus, and Protylenchulus are important agricultural pest nematodes. Due to their high volatility, chemical fumigants are used in enclosed spaces such as green houses, warehouses etc. The fumigants nematicides segment is projected to command the Asia-Pacific market with large market revenue due to huge adoption in vegetables & fruit crop production.

High Demand for Improving Soil Health
In order to improve the quality of soil, there is the need to make use of an alternative method, such as using nematicides, which can help in improving the quality of the soil, without depriving it of the essential nutrients. Using nematicides helps in scaling up the nutrient intake of plants, which is also essential to the current scenario. The effect of nematodes is very high in crops like maize, fruits, and vegetables. The increase in crop losses and degradation of soil health every year is the major concern for many farmers and forcing them to use nematicides in order to protect the crops. However, due to the regulatory pressure and growing demand for organic food, bio-based nematicides are the most preferred and gaining huge demand for improving soil health. While the prevalence of chemical or synthetic nematicides in crop protection would continue, human, animal and environmental health including soil is matter of concern and it would play key roles in driving growth for bio-based nematicides.

Burgeoning Research & Development Cost
The costs associated with new active ingredients for nematicides have been witnessing an upward trend for a couple of decades now. The chance of success for a nematicides product is not always impressive given its natural contents and effectiveness. These products may take more time and applications (quantitative) to show proper effectiveness. Such factors together make it a costlier affair for the farmers. It is estimated that around USD 256.0 million is required to bring new nematicide product into the market. Because of the huge costs required in bringing a new product into market, the nematicide companies and the R&D pipeline has dropped. Lack of sufficient investments from companies in developing new effective molecules, the market is still at its nascent stage and offers a wide scope for growth.

Key Developments of Asia-Pacific Nematicides Market
Nov 2015 - The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority has banned nematicide containing fenamiphos
May 2017 – Bayer has launched Velum Prime nematicide, the first non-fumigant for potato crop. It also controls the complete nematode management program.
