According to a market report published by Transparency Market Research titled “Insect Repellent Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2018 – 2026”, the global insect repellent market is expected to post a compound annual growth rate of 6.5% for 2018–2026 to reach US$7 billion by 2026. Asia Pacific held the dominant share of the insect repellent market in 2017.

Market Trends

Global warming and the growing incidence of  mosquito-borne diseases are expected to drive the demand for insect repellents in the Asia Pacific region:

  • China accounted for the largest share of value in
    2016 among Asia Pacific countries.
  • India is expected to have the highest compound annual growth rate of 7.5% in 2018–2026.
  • Humid weather and dense housing areas in China are potential sources of insect breeding, driving the growth of the insect repellent market over the forecast period.
  • Manufacturers and consumers are also showing growing interest in child-specific products; the two-child policy in China and in some parts of India and growing number of home care products targeting children and babies has increased health and hygiene awareness.
  • Insects are becoming more resistant to synthetic formulations and manufacturers are increasing levels of toxicity.
  • There has been a change in consumer preferences, shifting towards the use of natural insect repellent products such as essential oils that have low toxicity and do not harm the environment rather than DEET-based products that might cause health problems due to toxicity.
  • Along the same lines, manufacturers are focusing on developing innovative insect repellents by using natural ingredients, in order to have an extensive, established portfolio of products that target different consumers.
