According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, titled, “Household Insecticides Market," The household insecticides market was valued at $15.2 billion in 2022, and is estimated to reach $31.1 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 7.5% from 2023 to 2032.
Household insecticides refer to various chemicals that are used for insect control in domestic settings. They are primarily used against flies, cockroaches, mosquitos, rats, and mice. Household insecticides are less toxic to humans and are manufactured using natural or synthetic substances, such as hydroxyethyl isobutyl piperidine carboxylate, citronella oil, and geraniol oil.
These insecticides are commonly used in the form of sprays, mosquito coils, oil sprays, or slow-release vaporizing systems. They are applied to or sprayed on the floors, walls, and closed spaces to minimize the growth of insects, which aids in preventing the spread of vector-borne diseases.
The increase in number of mosquitoes and bedbugs is expected to contribute to the growth of the household insecticides market. The surge in mosquito population contributes to an increased risk of vector-borne diseases, such as malaria and dengue, increasing the urgency for protective measures.
Simultaneously, the resurgence of bedbug infestations poses a persistent challenge, compelling consumers to seek potent household insecticides to safeguard against these nocturnal pests. This growing threat to public health, coupled with increased consumer awareness about the risks associated with insect infestations, underscores the pivotal role of insecticides in maintaining a hygienic living environment.
Health and environmental concerns pose significant restraints on the household insecticide market, as consumers increasingly prioritize the safety of their homes and the environment. The use of potentially harmful chemicals in traditional insecticides has raised concern regarding indoor air quality and long-term health implications. In response, consumers are seeking alternatives that are perceived as safer and more environmentally friendly.
In addition, stringent regulations from governing bodies further contribute to the challenges faced by manufacturers in maintaining compliance with safety standards. The industry is under pressure to innovate and develop insecticides that are effective yet pose minimal risks to human health and the ecosystem.
The household insecticides market is anticipated to experience significant growth, with emerging economies presenting lucrative opportunities. There is a rise in demand for effective pest control solutions with rapid urbanization and an increase in disposable incomes in these regions. The increased population density in urban areas increases the risk of pest infestations, thereby boosting the requirement for household insecticides.
