Nematicides have been increasingly used in the agricultural industry in order to get rid of nematode worms destroying the crops. A rise in population has led to an increase in demand and production of crops. These factors have highly contributed to an expansion of the global nematicides market. Further, rapid industrialization leading to a reduction in availability of fertile lands has driven the market’s growth too. Nematicides are essentially used in the growth of seeds to improve crop yields. The cost effectiveness of these seed treatment systems has played a major role in the growth of global nematicides market. Moreover, food security measures taken by governments and increasing demand for bio-nematices have fostered the market’s expansion.

As per expert analysts, the global nematicides market is projected to register revenue valuation of US$1326.99 mn by 2025. This growth is perceived to occur at a CAGR of 3.3% during the forecast period from 2017 to 2025. Recent technological advancements and the benefits offered by nematicides over the conventional pesticides have expanded the consumer base of the global nematicides market. The global nematicides market is mainly segmented on the basis of product type, crop type, and regional distribution.

Fruits and Vegetables Segment Leads the Market Thanks to High Demand for Quality Food

In terms of product type, the nematicides market is divided into the following segments: fumigant, organophosphate, and carbamate. Fumigants segment is expected to witness highest growth during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to its effectiveness in reduction of post-harvest loss. In addition to this, high volatility of fumigants pertaining to ambient temperatures has also contributed to their extensive use. Organophosphate segment is perceived to grow tremendously during the forecast period followed by carbamate, which holds the least share in the global nematicides market.

In terms of crop type, the market is primarily bifurcated into oilseeds and pulses, cereals and grains, and fruits and vegetables. The fruits and vegetables segment is expected to grow exponentially since they are more prone to be destroyed by nematodes. In addition to this, an increase in population leading to surge in demand for fruits and vegetables has contributed to the market’s growth. Furthermore, rising awareness regarding organic fruits and vegetables has propelled the global nematicides market.
