The market includes a wide range of products such as repellent sprays, coils, creams and oils, vaporizers, and others such as mats, wearable bands, and candles.

North America Mosquito Repellent Market size, by product

Several research agencies are carrying out R&D investments in the field for several years. This has helped discover various safe and natural raw materials that can be used to formulate advanced products. Major players in the market are also focused on manufacturing products that suit all types of indoor and outdoor requirements. Creams, vaporizers, and sprays are now increasingly being used by consumers to protect themselves from mosquito bites. An increase in the number of mosquito-borne diseases has led to rising awareness among consumers about the need to use such products.

N-diethyl-3-methylbenzamide (DEET) and diethyl carbonate are major raw materials used for production. Various opportunities prevail for the industry owing to increasing penetration in untapped markets and rising demand for plant-based products. Mosquito repellents protect for outdoors as well as indoors and are used for controlling mosquito growth. Improvement in standard of living and increasing urbanization and population has propelled product demand, particularly in tropical areas in the region.

North America Mosquito Repellent Market Trends

Rising greenhouse gases in the atmosphere results in a rise in the earth's global temperature and are predicted to continue to climb in the future. It produces a wet and moist climate in some areas, which leads to the growth of mosquitoes in those areas. As a result, the impact of increased global warming would have a direct impact on the expansion of mosquito populations, leading to an increase in the usage of mosquito repellent products. This is expected to boost revenue for the mosquito repellant market.

The rising number of cases of mosquito-borne diseases such as chikungunya, malaria, yellow fever, dengue fever, and others is one of the primary growth drivers for the mosquito repellents market. Another key factor driving the market is the increasing use of repellents in underdeveloped and developing regions, where living conditions are poor and population density is high.

Toxic compounds in mosquito repellents, such as DEET, cause skin rashes, breathing difficulties, and other health concerns. The smoke emitted by burning the mosquito coil, on the other hand, is toxic to youngsters and pregnant women. Consumers have begun to shift their choices toward herbal-based repellents as the number of health risks associated with chemical-based mosquito repellents has increased. This shift in the choices is expected to limit the market growth.

Over the forecast period, the mosquito repellent market is predicted to rise due to a shift in consumer choice toward herb-based mosquito repellents. Many plant-based compounds including sprays, lotions, oils, and barks are being used by people in many developed nations. This is expected to provide numerous opportunities for the market players.
