Insect Repellent Market: Overview

The market size for insect repellent was USD 4.1 billion in 2021, and it is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.7 percent during the forecast period. In the coming years, rising home or commercial waste is expected to increase consumer awareness of insect-borne diseases and fuel market expansion. Because of population growth and a shift in habitation from rural to urban regions, there is a significant need for mosquito repellents in emerging nations. The transition from rural to suburban settings, which has forced insects to adapt to shifting environmental conditions, is another factor driving demand. Both affluent and poor countries around the world are affected by these insects, which spread deadly diseases including dengue, zika, and yellow fever.

Furthermore, the market growth has been significantly impacted by the rise in insect-borne diseases brought on by an increase in mosquito populations. There have been a lot of dengue, malaria, and chikungunya cases in places including North America, Asia Pacific, and Europe. For instance, a survey found that there were 2 million more instances worldwide in 2020 than there were in 2019. Because there are more insects due to increased global warming, there are also more diseases spread by insects. As a result, there is a greater need for the repellant. During the projected period, government attempts to reduce the impact of insects on the environment are also likely to have an impact on market growth. For instance, the government has developed integrated pest control to keep pest populations in check. The expansion of the market is also being impacted by an increase in the number of diseases spread by insects, which is caused by an increase in worldwide trash. For instance, the WHO predicts that by 2050, worldwide garbage will increase by 70.0%.

The market will grow as people become more aware of the advantages of insect repellents, especially in rural areas. Insect repellents that are currently on the market have mostly replaced the conventional means people used to protect themselves against insects. The market is expanding in metropolitan areas due to a rise in demand for herbal and natural insect repellents. Manufacturers are developing a variety of product connections. For instance, Dabur has developed a herbal treatment for repelling mosquitoes that is also excellent for the skin. However, some goods, such as sprays, have harmful impacts on health since they contain deet. Repellant liquids and other products have some detrimental impacts on health.  A study found that 11.8% of respondents experienced various health issues after using insect repellents, including breathing difficulties, eye irritation, and headaches. Manufacturers are developing a wide range of items that lessen the negative effects of repellents. In consequence, it is projected that this will greatly accelerate the growth of the insect-repellent market throughout the forecast period.

Insect Repellent Market: COVID-19 Impact

Insect repellent is viewed as a product for home hygiene and home care, therefore the COVID-19 epidemic had a beneficial impact on the market globally. The demand for home care and personal hygiene goods is also anticipated to increase in the coming days as a result of consumers' rising knowledge of the epidemic. Additionally, manufacturing firms think that the pandemic has increased customer awareness of the need to practise good hygiene at home and on a personal level to lower the risk of infection, which is anticipated to become a trend over time.

Insect Repellent Market: Drivers

Rising Prevalence of Insect-Borne Diseases to Drive Market Growth

During the projected period, it is anticipated that the prevalence of mosquito-borne diseases will accelerate the growth of the mosquito-repellent market. A number of the most prevalent and possibly fatal diseases are transmitted by mosquitoes. Zika, Dengue, Chikungunya, Yellow Fever, and Malaria are some of the illnesses spread by mosquitoes. In 2020, the World Health Organization predicts that there will be 241 million cases of malaria worldwide, with a total of 627 thousand deaths, an increase of 69 thousand deaths over 2019. Malaria is spread to humans by the bites of infected female Anopheles mosquitos. Dengue fever is anticipated to affect more than 3.9 billion people in 129 countries each year, with an estimated 96 million symptomatic cases and 40 thousand fatalities. It is most commonly seen in urban and semi-urban areas of tropical and subtropical climates. This illustrates the prevalence of mosquito-borne illnesses and their ongoing global spread.

Urbanization's Rapid Impact on Mosquito Ecology Driving Market Growth

Massive sanitation problems are a result of unplanned urbanization, climatic and environmental change, greater international travel and trade, and other societal developments. The onset and recurrence of mosquito-borne diseases have been made worse by these changes. The majority of studies found that as cities became more populated and there were more domestic animals and people living there, these problems spread more quickly. Urbanization is defined by the United Nations (UN) as the percentage of a population that resides in urban areas as well as the process through which many people continuously congregate in a limited region. Almost 4.2 billion people, or 55 percent of the world's population, reside in cities. By 2050, it is predicted that close to 68% of the world's population will have become urbanized or will have moved into cities as a result of this trend. Because there are more infected mosquitoes breeding in standing water that is left open due to a lack of drainage systems, the disease is more prevalent in metropolitan areas. In addition, the disease is more contagious in metropolitan areas, and crowding makes it worse. Therefore, it is anticipated that urban malaria would be a serious and expanding issue that needs to be handled. As a result, the market is anticipated to expand rapidly throughout the course of the projected period.

Insect Repellent Market: Restraints

Health Risks of Pesticides Used for Insect Control to Hamper Market Growth

Dangerous compounds like DEET, Cyfluthrin, Permethrin, and Pyrethroids are found in insect-repellent products. One of the most widely used insect repellents is DEET, however, in high concentrations, this chemical can harm the skin, brain, respiration, and bones. Physiological and behavioral issues may result from extended exposure to the chemical, which also impacts motor skills. Other compounds, such as cyfluthrin, also induce neurotoxicity when exposed for an extended period of time. As a result, many customers try to steer clear of goods that contain these dangerous compounds and choose safer options instead, such as picaridin.

Insect Repellent Market: Segment Overview

Spray Segment to Dominate Market due to its Ease of Use

According to repellant type, the spray sector is anticipated to expand at a sizable CAGR throughout the course of the projected period. When used with a container or bottle containing the repellent liquid, insect-repellent sprays or aerosols emit a mist of liquid particles. When the nozzle is depressed, a mist of repellent is discharged from this pressurized liquid. These sprays are simpler to use and can be used to repel insects on a variety of surfaces and materials. Additionally, sprays function more quickly than other product types like coils, incense sticks, mats, and liquids. Sprays, aerosols, and pump sprays are favored in North American and European nations.

Offering Personal Shopping Experience, Offline Distribution Channel Dominated Market

The market for insect repellents is predicted to have the fastest-growing offline method of distribution. Instead of selling a wide variety of goods, independent retailers concentrate on offering a certain group of products. Department stores, specialty shops, pharmacies, convenience stores, and bargain shops are a few examples of independent retailers. Because independent stores offer a more individualized shopping experience, customers tend to favor them. The store also offers a comfortable environment for customers by having a straightforward layout that makes it simple for customers to get around.

Insect Repellent Market: Regional Landscape

Asia Pacific to Dominate Market due to Growing Population and Adopting High Standard of Living

With a 60.0% market share in 2021, Asia Pacific was in the first place and is expected to experience rapid expansion in the coming years. In the Asia-Pacific area, China is the country with the greatest population, the highest per capita income, the highest standard of living, and the largest market for insect repellents. These factors have led to greater penetration of repellents into household goods. The combined effects of all these elements increase the product's sales. Additionally, home pests like cockroaches, flies, termites, bed bugs and ants are prevalent there. In China, households are increasingly using insect repellants in useable forms such as sprays, vaporizers, chalks, powders, and others. However, in India, the penetration of insect repellents into households has increased as a result of rising health concerns and growing public awareness, which has been supported by rising household income and reasonably priced products. The National Framework for Malaria Elimination was introduced in 2016 by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. The National Strategic Plan for Malaria Elimination, which outlined strategies for the subsequent five years from 2017 to 2022, was also introduced by the government.

The product's second-largest regional market was found to be in MEA. There has been a recorded rise in the prevalence of pathogen-caused vector-borne diseases in the majority of Africa. The administration is taking the required actions to resolve the issues in Africa and other Middle Eastern nations. In the upcoming years, it is projected that these factors will accelerate market growth in the area.

Considering the volatility of business today, traditional approaches to strategizing a game plan can be unfruitful if not detrimental. True ambiguity is no way to determine a forecast. A myriad of predetermined factors must be accounted for such as the degree of risk involved, the magnitude of circumstances, as well as conditions or consequences that are not known or unpredictable. To circumvent binary views that cast uncertainty, the application of market research intelligence to strategically posture, move, and enable actionable outcomes is necessary.
