Market Dynamics

  • The global urban pest management market is driven by the rising of insurance-based pest control services, growing hospitality, pharmaceutical, and food processing industries, and the complexity of pest control procedures and safety protocols for chemicals used in pest control.
  • Owing to the significant costs associated with pest control, many players in the market are coming up with insurance-based pest control services, especially for commercial customers. Major hotels and other businesses are opting for these pest control services.
  • Terminix, for instance, has partnered with Aon (an insurance provider) to provide insurance coverage against bed bug infestations, primarily for commercial customers such as hotels, community housing developments, and other businesses. As standard insurance policies provided for commercial properties do not include extermination costs, a round of pest control can require considerable investment.
  • The growing availability of specialized insurance policies will allow customers to control their expenses and access a reliable service provider.
  • However, the implementation of stringent regulations and consequent costs to service providers, and pressure on pricing strategies might hamper the market growth.
  • The industry is regulated by various state and federal authorities and must adhere to environmental laws. The market is highly fragmented, and many small vendors that are not thoroughly monitored operate in the space. The quality of the pesticides used may be compromised to keep costs low.
  • The penalties imposed for non-compliance include cancellation of licenses, fines, and other corrective actions. The introduction of regulations like the REACH and the Biocidal Products Regulation in Europe has considerable importance in this market.

Industry Outlook

Regional Trends
