The insect repellent market is a significant and growing segment of the consumer products industry, driven by the need to protect against insect-borne diseases and the discomfort caused by insect bites. Nowadays, the use of insect repellent is becoming popular as manufacturers are increasingly producing products at an affordable price range for consumers. The positive attributes of insect repellent include preventing diseases, rashes, and skin eruption from insect bites.

Additionally, improper garbage disposal system especially in rural areas which is resulting to attract and breed large number of unwanted insects is likely to fuel the demand.
