(I-BusinessNews.Com, February 11, 2020 ) The nematicides market is estimated to be valued at USD 1.3 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 1.6 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 3.4% from 2019 to 2025. Factors such as growing infestation of nematodes in high-value cash crops such as cotton, soybean, and fruits & vegetables are a substantial driver for the nematicides market. Genetically modified (GM) crops account for the highest acreages in North America, and South American regions, high investment associated with agricultural inputs such as seeds would be one of the key drivers for the adoption of nematicides.
Nematicides infestation is difficult to detect, is often attributed to other causes and its damage is often underestimated. Massive phase-out of active ingredients used to control nematodes such as methyl bromide and aldicarb would also drive for the adoption of new innovative control measures. Growing environmental concerns associated with the use of chemicals to control nematodes have paved way for the adoption of biological control. New farming practices such as no-tillage, and reduced tillage farming, along with increased soil degradation leading to decreased efficacy have resulted in an increase in the infesatation of nematodes. These trends are expected to increase the demand of nematicides, globally.
Fumigation is a mode that is both cost-effective and efficient for tackling the problem of nematodes. In regions where there is a scarcity of water, such as South Africa, and mechanically advanced economies such as the US and Canada where the adoption of drip irrigation is feasible, the market for fumigation is set to grow. There has been an increase in the adoption of non-toxic products in soils due to the growing interest in sustainable agriculture. This has aided the growth in the use of carbamates, which are relatively less toxic than fumigants.
With the increasing awareness among consumers about the importance of organic foods, the adoption of sustainable agriculture and integrated pest management solutions has increased. This has led to the demand for biocontrol products such as pheromones, biofungicides, biopesticides, and bionematicides. A number of major players in the market such as Marrone Bio Innovations (US) and Valent BioSciences (US) are introducing bionematicide solutions for seed treatment. These factors have paved the way for the high growth rate in the bionematicides market.
Key players in this market include Corteva Agriscience (US), Syngenta (Switzerland), Bayer AG (Germany), and BASF SE (Germany). New product launches, expansions, acquisitions, and agreements & joint ventures were some of the core strengths of the leading players in the nematicides market. These strategies were adopted by the key players to increase their market presence. It also helped them diversify their businesses geographically, strengthen their distribution networks, and enhance their product portfolios.
