Nematicides Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028
The global nematicides market size reached US$ 1.5 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 1.9 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 4.4% during 2023-2028.
Nematicides are chemical pesticides utilized for killing plant parasitic nematodes (PPNs), which are microscopic parasitic worms living in soil or freshwater. They are generally applied on the soil to increase effectiveness, avoid animal and human contact, and protect crop seedlings against nematode attacks during plant development. As PPNs pose a major threat to the quantitative and qualitative production of numerous cash crops, nematicides find extensive applications in the agriculture sector across the globe.
Nematicides Market Trends:
Increasing concerns about crop losses on account of pest attacks represent one of the key factors positively influencing the sales of nematicides. Fenamiphos, a systemic nematicide effective against ecto- and endoparasitic, free-living, cyst-forming, and root-knot nematodes and ethoprop and a nonsystemic nematicide, effective against soil-dwelling insects, are currently commonly used around the world. Besides this, there is a significant rise in the usage of fosthiazate, a contact-acting nematicide that controls potato cyst nematodes. Moreover, non-fumigant nematicides can be applied before, during, or after planting through soil drenching, drip irrigation, or spraying onto the crop foliage to reduce population densities of nematodes and protect crops from damage. Apart from this, as several nematicides have been banned due to their health and environmental hazards, biological nematicides, also known as bionematicides, are gaining immense traction for the environment-friendly management of PPNs. This, coupled with the rising importance of biological control of pests, is fueling the growth of the market. Furthermore, leading players are focusing on developing nematicides, which are selective, less toxic, and safer to use. This, along with the rapidly increasing population and a consequently surging need for food worldwide, is anticipated to strengthen the market growth.
