Report Overview

The global insect repellent market size was valued at USD 4.48 billion in 2021 and is expected to exhibit at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.5% from 2022 to 2030.

U.S. insect repellent market size, by insect type, 2020 - 2030 (USD Million)

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a positive impact on the global insect repellent market since it is considered a home cleanliness and home care product. Furthermore, demand for personal hygiene and home care goods is projected to surge further in the following days as customers become more aware of the pandemic. Furthermore, manufacturers feel that the pandemic has increased customer awareness of the importance of personal and household hygiene in order to limit the risk of infection, which is predicted to become a trend in the long run. 

Furthermore, when literacy rates rise in developing nations, consumers' purchasing decisions-particularly in rural areas-are influenced to place a higher priority on cleanliness and health. The World Health Organization reported in March 2020 that more than 17% of all infectious diseases are vector-borne diseases, which result in more than 700,000 fatalities yearly. Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic is encouraging people to buy insect repellent as a necessity.

The demand for insect repellent increases as a result of warmer countries having higher insect reproductive rates than other places. The major players have a chance to grow their businesses in areas with warm climates and changing rainfall patterns that result in a rise in the number of insects that can spread diseases to people.

More businesses are aiming for product innovation in the industry, especially when it comes to material selection. For instance, Godrej Consumer Products Ltd. (GCPL), a packaged consumer goods firm based in Mumbai, introduced the Goodknight Jumbo Fast Card, a paper-based mosquito repellant, in September 2021. The new item aims to increase accessibility and market penetration in both urban and rural areas.

Additionally, governments and NGOs around the globe are increasingly promoting health awareness campaigns in accordance with popular insect repellent brands to raise awareness of the value of waste management and better brand awareness among the general public, and to lower the number of parasitic infections, particularly in rural populations.

Insect Type Insights

In terms of revenue, mosquito repellents dominated the market with a share of around 51.9% in 2021 owing to the rise in the incidence of mosquito-borne diseases and global warming which facilitates the breeding of mosquitoes. The rise in health awareness, government initiatives for mosquito control, and the affordable cost of repellents are the major factors driving this segment’s growth.

Bugs repellent is projected to register a CAGR of 10.4% from 2022 to 2030. The key driver of the segment's growth is the rise in bed bugs and cockroach populations. It has been noted that bed bug prevalence has increased significantly over the past few years and is currently rising by an average of 50% annually. The demand for repellents in the area has increased significantly as a result of numerous issues. 

Product Type Insights

In terms of revenue, vaporizer dominated the market with a share of 29.6% in 2021. Vaporizers typically contain herbal ingredients and aid in lowering bug populations. The product offers a wide range of applications, which has increased customer interest in it. The product is the most favored insect repellent due to its efficacy in keeping a whole room free of insects while not endangering humans in any way.

Global insect repellent market share, by product type 2021, (%)

Spray is estimated to grow with fastest CAGR of 11.0% over the forecast period. Due to its extensive applicability, which includes mosquito repellent as well as bugs and fly repellent, the product is highly-liked by the consumer group. The spray works better than liquids at getting rid of bugs from kitchen and bathroom plumbing. Spraying causes discomfort in users for a while, which is the primary reason for its declining market share.

Regional Insights 

Asia Pacific dominated the insect repellent market with a share of 40.4% in 2021. The market in the area has been driven by the introduction of new product variations, consumer adoption of those products due to increased consumer awareness of various benefits, and the rise in insect-borne diseases. Additionally, the expansion of the business is greatly influenced by the slum dwellers' growing awareness of the value of utilizing insect repellant. 

Insect Repellent Market Trends by Region

Middle East & Africa is expected to witness a CAGR of 10.7% from 2022 to 2030. The engagement of the government and other international organizations, that concentrate on eliminating vector-borne illness in this area, particularly in African nations, has increased demand for the product. For example, the World Health Organization reports that in August 2019, African health ministers concur to put into place a vigorous plan for reducing vector-transmitted diseases in Africa.
