According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Nematicides Market is accounted for $1.44 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $1.96 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period. Nematicides refer to the pesticides available for controlling nematode population and infestation and the formulations and application techniques used by growers to maximize nematode control and fundamentally increase crop yields. These pesticides are known to be highly toxic and should be utilized only by trained applicators who understand how to mitigate the risks.

There is an increasing preference for organic food products among consumers and farmers are using integrated pest management technologies and sustainable agriculture methods. According to European Union statistics, the area used for organic agricultural production in the EU continues to increase. It covered 14.7 million hectares in 2020, up from 9.5 million hectares in 2012, equivalent to a rise of 56%. In 2020, the total organic area in the EU corresponded to 9.1% of the total utilized agricultural area (UAA).

Market Dynamics:


Rising demand for food

The increasing emphasis on food safety and security to achieve a sustainable future surge the demand for food products. Developing countries are essential to blame for the increased demand for cereals to combat malnutrition and hunger. Developing countries in the Asia Pacific are likely to account for half of the increase in global cereal demand because of rising urbanization and rapid economic growth. However, crop production suffers yield losses because of pest and pathogen attacks, prompting growers to utilize nematicides to improve quality and quantity. To overcome this, farmers focus on increasing productivity – greater yields from the available hectare of land, thus instigating the demand for high-quality nematocides.


High environmental risk associated with the use of chemical pesticides

The pesticide residue problem because of the non-judicious utilization of pesticides by the farmers is restraining the market growth. Pesticide residue problems are highly found in the crops grown in developing or under-developed countries. Though intensive farming is inevitable without the utilization of pesticides, farmers in developing countries will generally utilize excess pesticides, which then damage the crops. Repeated use of such chemically synthesized pesticides can negatively affect the environment and human health, potentially impeding the nematicides market growth.


Customized solutions targeted toward specific pests

With the growing environmental and pollution concerns and health hazards from numerous conventional agrochemicals, the demand for natural biologicals is rising consistently across regions. Customers are witnessing the popularity of new biological products such as bio nematicides to use against nematodes on standing crops, which cause crop damages, thereby reducing the overall farm yield and quality. The utilization of biological and related alternative management products is expanding. R&D teams of major global players are focusing on discovering target-specific innovative products by utilizing biological insecticides, which promote organic agriculture.


Lack of awareness and low utilization of biologicals

Awareness about biologicals, such as bio-nematicides among farmers, is extremely low. Farmers are not aware of the technique of use and the cost-effective benefits of these crop protection products. As the market is highly fragmented at the regional level, awareness regarding various brands is low. Despite considerable efforts by agronomists, agricultural universities, organizations, and governments across the globe in recent years, the majority of farmers are unaware of biological products and their advantages in increasing cost-yield sustainability.

The bionematicides segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The bionematicides segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth owing to the increasing awareness among consumers about the significance of organic foods, the adoption of sustainable agriculture, and integrated pest management solutions. A number of major players in the market are introducing bionematicide solutions for seed treatment.

The vegetables segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The vegetables segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period due to the increasing cases of infestation on vegetables by nematode species such as root-knot, lesion, and cyst nematodes. The increasing acreage being brought under vegetable cultivation and the growing demand for organic vegetables drive the growth of this segment.

Region with highest share:

North America is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period owing to the adoption of genetically modified seeds has also increased the cases of nematode infestation on crops and the presence of various nematode species attacking a wide range of economically important crops.

Region with highest CAGR:

Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period due to a decrease in arable land on account of industrialization, and rising cultivation of high-value crops such as vegetables and fruits. Furthermore, the crop demand has increased leading to create huge demand for the development of the Global Nematicides Market.

Key players in the market

Some of the key players profiled in the Nematicides Market include Syngenta International AG, American Vanguard Corporation, Bayer CropScience, Simbiose Agro, Nufarm Limited, DuPont, Marrone Bio Innovations, Inc., Isagro Group Spa, FMC Corporation, Stoller, Dow Chemical Company, Sumitomo Chemical, BASF SE, Monsanto Company, Adama Agricultural Solutions and BioConsortia Inc.

Key Developments:

In March 2022, BioConsortia Inc. launched two new nematicides for corn and other food crops. The new products control nematode pests and increase crop yields. Plant parasitic nematodes are tiny, ubiquitous roundworms that feed on plants. They directly target the roots of major production crops and prevent water and nutrient uptake resulting in reduced crop performance.

In Dec 2021, - BASF SE launched bionematicide in Brazil with the trade name Votivo Prime. The bionematicide is based on the bacterium Bacillus Firmus, which improves the root system and diminishes stresses on soybeans, rice, wheat, corn, and cotton. The product is safe to use in conjunction with chemicals and other biological insecticides.
