By Composition - Segment Analysis

Natural segment is expected to witness the highest growth over the forecast period 2023 to 2028, growing at CAGR of 9.4%. Household insecticides are categorised as synthetic, which include DEET, Picaridin & others, and natural, which include citronella oil, geraniol oil and others. Oil of citronella is a naturally occurring insect and animal repellent distilled from two grass varieties. It is a mixture of many components which vary by grass variety. Some oil of citronella products are applied to animal or human skin, ornamental plants, or other outdoor areas. Oil of citronella is currently on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)'s list of minimum risk pesticides.

Moreover, geraniol as a main active ingredient in insecticides kills tiny parasitic worms found in certain fish. Specific essential oils make good insect repellents and insecticides, on top of being biodegradable. Geraniol is used as a mosquito and tick repellent and as an insecticide for other target pests (including mites).

Drivers – Household Insecticides Market

• Rising concerns about vector-borne diseases

Vector-borne diseases remain a key challenge across the world. The spread of these diseases is determined by complex environmental and social factors. As mosquitoes and flies carry pathogens, they are more likely to spread infections. Rising concerns about vector-borne diseases is significantly fueling the growth of the household insecticides market. People are increasingly becoming aware about the risks associated with vector-borne diseases, and this is expected to result in an increase in the number of people purchasing household insecticides during the forecast period.

· Growing Mosquito and Bedbugs Population Driving the Market

Mosquitos being one of the major disease-carrying insects have gained serious attention in recent years with a high focus on developing measures to eradicate them. The gradual waning of DDT concentration and urbanization are the major reasons for growing mosquito and bedbug population. Aedes aegypti is a tropical species of mosquito, which is responsible for spreading zika, dengue, and chikungunya. It is one of the major threats of disease transmission.

Bedbugs can be seen in both sanitary and unsanitary locations, irrespective of cleanliness. They are primarily found in areas, like schools, nursing homes and daycare centers, offices, hospitals, hotels, and public transportation. The growth of these insects along with the awareness about the spread of diseases by these insects is driving the market for the household insecticides.

Challenges – Household Insecticides Market

· Health effects

There is also no risk to bees and other pollinators. Health Canada, however, has expressed concern about the disadvantages of citronella, especially the safety of applying large amounts of citronella products used on the skin.
