US Nematicides Market Analysis

United States Nematicides market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period (2020-2025). Owing to the presence of various nematode species attacking a wide range of economically important crops and awareness of farmers regarding the chemical nematicides application, the country has garnered the highest share in the North American market.

  • In 2019, by chemical type, the fumigants segment dominated the market. Soil fumigation is the most widely accepted practice for crop treatment against nematodes. In United States, Meloidogyne, Heterodera, Tylenchulus, Rotylenchulus, and Protylenchulus are the common agricultural pest nematodes. Due to their high volatility, chemical fumigants are used in enclosed spaces, like greenhouses, warehouses, etc.
  • Bayer AG, American Vanguard Corporation, Corteva Agriscience and Syngenta International AG are some of the major players who have their presence in the region.

US Nematicides Industry Segments

Nematodes are parasitic worms that feed on living material. They can often be detrimental to plant growth and health as they attack and feed on plant roots. It can infest on all parts of the plant leading to severe crop damages. Nematicides are a type of chemical pesticide that is used to kill nematodes.

US Nematicides Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the US Nematicides Market according to our research experts:

Increase Nematode Management in Vegetable crops

The management of nematodes in both nursery beds and open fields under vegetable crops is of paramount importance as vegetables fetch higher returns when compared to conventional crops. It has been observed that the application of nematicides for controlling the nematode population in vegetable crops has gained immense importance in recent years in the country. For instance, Florida and Georgia are the leading producers of vegetables that are grown either in greenhouses or in open fields in the United States. Almost one-third of the total vegetable production in Georgia is grown using plasticulture including tomatoes, eggplants, cabbage, squash, zucchinis, cucumbers, watermelons, cantaloupes, and bell pepper, and hence, are attacked by Root-knot nematodes (RKN), which have a very wide host range. In response, fumigant nematicide treatment, such as Telone II and Telone by Corteva, has been very beneficial to vegetable growers in these states. The continuous application of nematicides on vegetable crops is expected to follow a positive trend in the future due to the prominence of vegetables in securing higher returns, thus, driving the nematicide market in the coming years.

United States Nematicides Market Key Trends

Halogen Compounds and Other Fumigants Leading the Market

The fumigation demand has been high in controlling nematodes in vegetable crops in the United States over the last few decades. For instance, Georgia which is one of the top four producers of vegetables such as onion, tomatoes, cucumbers, cabbage, watermelon, and eggplants, uses fumigants to control root-knot nematode (Meloidogyne spp). The most common fumigants used to control nematodes in vegetable crops in Georgia are mainly chloropicrin, Telone II, Vapam (metam sodium), and Paladin (dimethyl disulfide). Crops, vegetables, corn, and cotton are majorly affected by nematodes in the country. The most common nematode species affecting cotton in the United States are species southern root-knot (Meloidogyne incognita), reniform (Rotylenchulus reniformis), Columbia lance (Hoplolaimus columbus), and sting (Belonolaimus longicaudatus). The availability of a higher number of fumigant nematicide products is expected to drive market growth during the forecast period.
