The home insecticide and repellency market makes up over 6% of the Home Care market globally and is the largest growing category since 2010. The main factors that have contributed to the huge growth in the insect repellent market are as follows:
- strong government progress to reduce diseases caused by mosquitos (Latin America and Asia);
- companies investing in educational programmes and marketing campaigns to raise awareness;
- increasing consumer awareness of health risks; and
- global temperature variations – mainly wet and warm regions contributing to increased number of insects.
