Research and Markets: Global Nematicides Market 2015-2019 – Fumigants, Organophosphates, Carbamates, Bio-nematicides, and Other Nematicides

By Business Wire News   


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Global Nematicides Market 2015-2019” report to their offering.

In 2014, North America dominated the market in terms of revenue. It was followed by Europe, APAC, and ROW.

Nematicides are a class of pesticides that inhibit or kill plant-parasitic nematodes. Rise in global demand for food has increased the pressure on famers to enhance their crop yield. Hence, farmers are increasingly adopting nematicides to prevent loss of crops from parasitic attacks.

The report, Global Nematicides Market 2015-2019, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from various industry experts. The report includes a comprehensive discussion on the market, an extensive coverage on various applications, and end-uses and composition of nematicides. The report provides comments on both the existing market landscape and the growth prospects in the coming years.

Farmers are adopting modern farming techniques and using updated technology to increase crop yield. They are also using a variety of nematicides that are specially formulated to kill harmful insects and not affect other organisms. Nematicide-treated nets are also being used that help farmers to reduce insect menace and increase crop yield. According to CORBANA, traditional nematicides are applied three times a year depending on the plantation condition. Bayer has developed a nematicide named Verango, which is applied once a year. It is less harmful to the environment and farmers.

According to the report, the availability of arable land has been decreasing over the years because of urbanization, salinization, erosion, deforestation, overgrazing, industrialization, and desertification. In sub-Saharan Africa, only 22% of arable land is available for cultivation. China is also facing a loss of arable land because of natural disasters and an increased use of cultivable land for forest, grassland replantation projects, and construction purposes. This restricts the ability of crop producers to enhance yield quality and efficiency in the available arable land. Hence, farmers are increasingly using nematicides to kill or inhibit the growth of insects to increase crop yield, efficacy of growth and profitability, and to prevent crop loss.

Further, the report states that the growing concerns about the detrimental effects of certain types of nematicides such as dichlopropene, methyl isocyanate, chloropicrin, and methyl bromide are hindering market growth, as the manufacturers need to adhere to stringent regulations for producing nematicides.
