The global mosquito repellent market size was valued at USD 6.23 billion in 2021. The market is projected to grow from USD 6.51 billion in 2022 to USD 9.30 billion by 2029, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.23% during the forecast period. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited an average growth of 3.69% in 2020 as compared to 2019.

Earth's global temperature has continued to rise over the past few years and is expected to rise in the near future due to increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Hot temperatures provide perfect conditions for mosquito breeding and increased activity. It also guarantees humid climate in certain areas, which helps with population growth. The effects of increasing global warming will therefore directly affect the growth of mosquito population, leading to the proliferation of products designed to repel mosquitoes. This would, in turn, increase the overall demand for mosquito repellent. Moreover, rapid urbanization and industrialization in India, China, Brazil, Argentina, the UAE, and others is leading to the construction of buildings and apartments, which amplifies the demand for mosquito repellent products, thus fostering market growth.


Disturbance in the Supply Chain Management to Hinder Market Growth

The pandemic created a significant impact on the market growth. With multiple lockdowns across the globe, manufacturing facilities were closed, owing to the imbalance in the supply of raw materials and lack of workers. The closure of shops and mega stores in various countries reduced the sales of home care products during 2020.

Besides, coronavirus has led to the rise of several potential industry opportunities for the domestic players of every country. Moreover, online channels have seen a boom in mosquito repellent demand during 2020 while offline demand was severely affected, owing to closure of stores. Online sales channels have registered a market share of 18.62% during the forecast period.

Shifting Consumer Preference of Branded Home Care Products to Impact Consumption Trends

Consumer tastes are constantly altering as patterns of demand for products keep changing. The competitive scenario of the home care industry has transformed considerably due to major shift in consumer lifestyles toward brands and luxury consumer goods. Recent trends have altered the behavior of consumer buying, placing more emphasis on quality products. This factor has created great potential for different brand owners to create different types of new products.

People are likely to live in a different way of life these days, with consumption patterns varying from time to time. Higher-income consumers and younger generations are turning to online shopping for non-essential & essential items as it saves time and offers a wide variety of products. Therefore, this is expected to drive the global mosquito repellent market growth.


Growing Awareness Regarding Insect Repellents to Favor Market Expansion

The rise of insect-borne diseases, such as malaria and dengue fever, has made it necessary for consumers to use insect repellents. Mosquito-borne diseases are spreading worldwide. Dengue and malaria cases and deaths are unacceptably high and are rising in semi-urban and rural places. For instance, as per a report published by the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2021, approximately 14 million new cases of malaria occurred in 2020, with the highest number of cases and deaths in the new WHO Malaria Report since 2012.

Unsuitable Environmental Conditions to Augment Mosquito Repellent Demand

Temperature is the most important abiotic factor affecting insect growth. Climate change directly impacts insect population dynamics by altering incidence, reproduction, and mortality rates. Weather can also affect insect populations indirectly by altering the population, distribution, and physiology of host trees, with increasing temperatures exponentially raising insect metabolic rates. Therefore, inadequate environmental conditions, such as heavy rains and global warming, also led to mosquito problems, mounting the demand for mosquito repellents.


Allergic Reaction due to Mosquito Sprays and Coils to Hamper Sales

Products, such as sprays, vaporizers, and others, used to repel mosquitoes can be associated with health problems, including skin reactions such as rashes, swelling, itching, and eye irritation, and others. They can be harmful as they contain certain chemicals that can have adverse effects on skin over time. This reduces the demand for insect repellent products, thus hindering market growth.

Chemically derived repellent products provide immediate solutions and are made of highly concentrated chemicals. These chemicals are very powerful at repelling and exterminating invading mosquitoes and other insects.

Supermarkets Segment to Dominate the Market Due to Availability of a Wide Variety of Products

On the basis of distribution channel, the market is segmented into retail stores, supermarkets, online, and others. The supermarkets segment held a significant market share in 2021. They offer a wide variety of specialty products, and consumers are free to validate the authenticity of their products. Also, major retailers involved in the home care business are expanding into large retail outlets such as mega stores and hypermarkets to meet the growing demand for home care products.

The supermarkets segment held the largest market share in 2021, while the online retail segment is expected to grow fastest during the forecast period. Increasing internet penetration in different regions has helped consumers to gain knowledge about the usage and application of different products, which, in turn, fosters the demand for the products through online channels.
