The global home insecticides market is anticipated to grow significantly over the forecast period. Insecticides are known to be widely used to control, deter, or kill insects in the agriculture and related field activity. These insect destroying agents can be synthetic as well as organic in nature or a combination of both.

Various insects such as mosquitoes, flies, bugs, termites, ants, etc. are found to create inconvenience and severe health-related problems for humans. Some categories of spiders, ants, and wasps are dangerous enough to pose life threats. However, humans have gained knowledge to develop ways to tackle the outspread of these insects.

As cities are expanding to accommodate larger populations, they are increasingly becoming prone to suffer from pest infestation. A variety of integrated methods such as genetic, physical, biological, and chemical are adopted to face these challenges. Aerosol/ spray, coils, baits, and electric vaporizers are the various product forms of home insecticides used in many households to tackle insect problems. Major home insecticides include neem oil, pyrethrin, malathion, and carbaryl. However, these products may pose health threats due to prolonged exposure to the smell or harmful chemical emissions. The accompanying odor may cause nausea and dizziness or aggravate respiratory problems in patients and hence, is undesirable. They not only eliminate insects but might also have adverse effects on the human body especially in infants, weak patients and elderly people. This trend is witnessing a change with several technological developments initiated to induce pleasant fragrances and eliminate smoke and odor. Several regulations have been imposed to check the usage of harmful or banned materials in the manufacturing of these products.
