Market Dynamics:

Rising concerns about vector-borne diseases

The major factors boosting the demand of the global household insecticides market include the rising incidences of vector-borne diseases and the increasing government initiatives towards the promotion of household insecticides across several nations. For instance, vector-borne diseases account for more than 17% of all kinds of infectious diseases resulting in more than 700,000 deaths every year. A primary threat around the globe remains vector-borne diseases. Complex environmental and social factors influence the spread of these illnesses. As mosquitoes and flies carry pathogens, they are more likely to spread infections. Rising concerns about vector-borne diseases are significantly fueling the growth of the household insecticides market. People are becoming increasingly aware of the risks associated with vector-borne diseases, and during the forecast period, this is expected to result in rising in the number of individuals buying household insecticides.

Organic household insecticides, in particular, have high demand as they are eco-friendly, are less toxic, and can degrade quickly. Manufactures and producers in the household insecticides market largely focus on a combination of factors including their action effectiveness, toxicity, human tolerability, and the area and purpose of application to decide on the apt formulation. Hence, the advent of formulations and variants of insecticides that are well tolerated among humans is expected to act as an opportunity for the growth of the global household insecticides market.

On the other hand, the rising awareness regarding the side effects caused due to prolonged usage of household insecticides will hamper the growth of the global household insecticides market during the forecast period. Citronella is thought to be healthy, although a mild allergic reaction to the eyes or skin may occur in some individuals. According to the United States EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), there is little toxicity in citronella oil, and it poses no risk to humans or animals. There is also no risk to bees and other pollinators. However, Health Canada has expressed concern about the drawbacks of citronella, in particular the safety of applying large amounts of citronella products used on the skin.

Market Segmentation

Household insecticides are majorly used for mosquito and fly control

The population of mosquitos has increased manifolds in the past five years. Mosquitos being one of the major disease-carrying insects have gained serious attention in recent years with a high focus on developing measures to eradicate them. According to the WHO, malaria is prevalent in 91 nations while 40% of the world population is at risk. In addition, as per the WHO, nearly 2 million deaths occur from an infection due to mosquito bites every year. Thus, the market for household insecticides to control mosquitoes and flies is highly driven by the rising number of cases of diseases caused by mosquitoes. Moreover, specific initiatives aimed towards vector diseases prevention are expected to upsurge the demand for household insecticides in various countries.

Manufacturers are focusing on developing better and environment-friendly solutions for the prevention of such diseases and are developing advanced mosquito household insecticides products. The Department of Environmental Protection has suggested that natural household insecticides for mosquito and fly control (Biobased) are better for human health. Thus, market leaders have already launched various natural household insecticides for mosquito and fly control to offer effective protection from mosquitoes. For instance, Godrej Consumer Products Ltd offers Neem Anti-Mosquito Room Spray which is made of 100% natural active ingredients. Goodnight Naturals Neem Anti Mosquito Room Spray will last up to 750 sprays.

Geographical Penetration

APAC was the largest segment of the global household insecticide market in 2020 with a share of 56.35%.

Growing awareness of the benefits of using household insecticides through television advertisements and the high adoption rates of these products in tier 2 and tier 3 cities have been fueling the market's growth. Most parts of APAC have a tropical and sub-tropical climate, which is favourable for insects like mosquitoes to survive and breed. With the rising instances of insect-borne diseases, therefore, the demand for insecticide products is increasing exponentially in the region. China dominates the Asia Pacific household insecticides market with a share of 35%, followed by Japan. The demand for household insecticides made from natural ingredients rather than chemicals is gaining popularity among consumers in China.  This trend is projected to support natural insecticide products.

COVID-19 Impact: Pandemic had a positive impact on the global household insecticides market

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has significantly increased the demand for household insecticides across the globe, to overcome the effect of viruses and bacteria in both, the residential and commercial sectors. Moreover, post lockdowns in various parts of the world, it will be essential to have household insecticide products to overcome pest infestations such as cockroach infestation, mosquito breeding, rodent activities, and many more that took place in vacant premises in commercial areas during these times.
