Dublin, July 22, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Nematicides Market by Types, Applications, and Geography - Global Trends & Forecasts to 2019" report to their offering.

Nematicide is a type of chemical pesticide used to kill nematodes. Nematodes are microscopic parasitic roundworms, found in massive quantities virtually everywherein the soil, water, and inside other plants and animals.A single gram of soil can contain more than 1,000 plant-parasitic nematodes. With more than 10,000 species classified, they are one of the most prolific parasites on the planet, outnumbering even insects. While some nematodes live freely in the soil and water, the most problematic are those that are parasitic; invading plants, animals, and insects.

Nematicides are most commonly broad-spectrum toxicants possessing high volatility or other properties promoting migration through the soil. Nematicides are primarily available in two different delivery forms, fumigants and contact applications, with a very small portion of product currently in the form of integrated seed treatment. Fumigants are administered several weeks before planting of the crops directly into the soil, while contact nematicides are applied during planting, both the treatments are most effective as preventative measures taken before the root systems are fully developed.

In terms of value, fumigant products dominate the nematicides market. Owing to their higher cost, these gaseous formulas injected into the soil are mainly used on high-value crops such as vegetables and fruits. Fumigants are the leading type of nematicides in the U.S. as well as in France, Italy, and Spain. U.S.

However, many countries in Europe have disallowed the use of fumigant products, and the state of California is likely to restrict their use even more over the next few years. The global nematicides market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 3.2% from 2014 to 2019. Bio-nematicides are estimated to grow at the highest CAGR of 4.2%. Due to the environment-friendly nature of bio-nematicides products, the market is growing at a very positive phase as compared to the chemical nematicides market.
