The global nematicides market is estimated to be valued at USD 1.9 billion in 2022. It is projected to reach USD 3.0 billion by 2027, recording a CAGR of 9.9 % during the forecast period. Nematicides are chemical pesticides used to kill plant-parasitic nematodes. They are applied to crops for protection from nematodes, resulting in enhanced yield and crop quality. Nematodes are tiny parasites, such as microscopic roundworms, found in large quantities in soil, water, and inside other plants and animals. They live in a film of water surrounded by soil; the water film helps in the maintenance of body fluids of nematodes. Availability of pesticide products, growing awareness, increase in pest attacks, and growing pest resistance toward crop protection products drive the multiple application of pesticides, resulting in an increase in pesticide consumption across countries.
Key players in this market include BASF SE (Germany), Isagro S.P.A (Italy), Corteva Agriscience (US), Syngenta AG (Switzerland), Bayer AG (Germany).
BASF SE is one of the global leaders in the crop protection industry. The company operates through surface technologies, chemicals, materials, agricultural solutions, industrial solutions, nutrition, and care. It offers nematicide solutions through its agricultural solutions business. It has a broad product portfolio of fungicides, insecticides, seed treatment, and pest control. BASF offers solutions within nematicides for seed treatment. The company is now among the leading players in the nematicides market due to the strategic acquisition of Bayer CropScience’ (Germany) crop protection business and assets, which complement BASF’s agricultural solutions business. The acquisition is aimed at improving BASF’s presence in Europe and the Asia Pacific, alongside improving the research activities on herbicides and nematicides. The company has also invested in introducing patented technologies for nematode management seed treatment, which would provide growers with enhanced protection against various damaging nematode species in row crops
