Drivers and Trends

The growth of the global household insecticides market is majorly driven by increasing demand from emerging regions such as Asia Pacific due to rapid urbanization and growing disposable income among the population. In addition, factors such as increasing urbanization and concerns over vector-borne diseases across the globe are projected to fuel demand for household insecticides in the near future.

Conversely, toxicity levels in household insecticides are increasing (primarily due to the growing immunity level of insects), which is causing health problems from prolonged exposure to chemicals and odor. This is one of the factors restraining demand for household insecticides globally.
