These factors together are anticipated to display a sturdy growth in the insect repellent market over the forecast period.

Increasing Government Initiatives

The World Health Organization along with various individual country’s government initiatives are trying to prevent various insect borne diseases and reduce the number of deaths across the globe. For instance, National Vector Borne Disease Control Programme is a government organization launched in the year 2003 for prevention and control of vector borne diseases in India. In the year 2017, WHO reported that more than 17% of all infectious diseases, causing more than 700 000 deaths annually were caused due to insect (vector) borne diseases. The high occurrences of infection rate and deaths caused by infection carrying vectors such as various types of mosquitoes, sandflies, Triatomine bugs, fleas, aquatic snails, lice and many others are expected to drive the market for insect propellants robustly during the forecast period.

Furthermore, growing demand for insect repellants containing natural ingredients that display higher effectiveness is expected to drive the demand even more over the forecast period. This can be attributed to increasing consumer concerns regarding environment sustainability across the globe.
