Demand Analysis of Household Insecticides from 2016-2020 Vs Market Projections for 2021-2031

As per the recent market research published by Persistence Market Research on household insecticide sales, the market progressed at a CAGR of 3.4% over the last five years.

Vector-borne diseases are a key challenge for many countries and put a lot of strain on the healthcare system. A large number of people get infected by such diseases with a significant number of fatalities, and it remains a key global challenge. Flies and mosquitoes play a vital role in the spread of these diseases.

Rise in awareness concerning preventive action that can be taken concerning the spread of vector-borne diseases is expected to increase the consumer base of household insecticides over the assessment period of 2021-2031.

Moreover, disposable income of population across the globe is increasing at a significant pace, especially in economies such as India, China, Turkey, and ASEAN nations. Owing to this increase in per capita income, average household expenditure on insecticide products is also expected to witness growth.

In addition, International tourism has increased at a steady rate. More people are opting for travel to reduce stress. Increasing tourism to experience natural wild life habitats will lead to growth in demand for household insecticides, as tourists travelling to such regions are often advised to stay wary of mosquitoes and insects and use insecticides such as creams and gels as protection.

Furthermore, rapid rise in urban population across the globe is also elevating the consumption level of household insecticides, with increasing need of products that keep household menaces such as cockroaches, ants, and mosquitoes in check.

Emerging economies such as India and China are the main players contributing to global urbanization. According to the United Nations, China is expected to account for 20% (276 Mn) and India for 16% (218 Mn) of total increase in global urban population from 2011 to 2030. This remarkable rise in urban population, along with the above-mentioned factors, is expected to drive demand for household insecticides at a CAGR of around 6.9% through 2031.

Which Factors are Hindering Growth of Household Insecticide Suppliers?

Insect repellents are known to be toxic and can lead to health issues. As a matter of fact, many studies have shown that insecticides and insect repellents can have long-term adverse effects. This is a primary factor negatively impacting demand growth of household insecticides.

For instance, DEET (N,N-Diethyl-meta-toluamide), which is used in insect repellents, is toxic and can have long-term adverse effects. Furthermore, recent research results have also proved that DEET is a neurotoxin that increases the toxicity of the other chemicals in a product. Factors such as these will impede growth of the market during the forecast period.

Moreover, various stringent regulations imposed over the use of synthetic chemicals in household insecticides across regions is expected to hamper growth of the market over the forecast period.
