The global mosquito repellent market size was valued at USD 6.81 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow from USD 7.13 billion in 2024 to USD 11.07 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.65% 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.

The closure of shops and mega stores, uncertainties in the supply of raw materials and lack of workers significantly impacted market revenue during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, online sales channels witnessed a boom in mosquito repellent demand during 2020 compared to offline distribution channels.

Mosquito Repellent Market Trends

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.

Mosquito Repellent Market Growth Factors

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 include dengue, malaria, yellow fever, West Nile, Zika, chikungunya, and lymphatic filariasis. The insect kills more people than any other creature in the world. 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. West Nile virus (WNV) is another most common mosquito-borne disease in the continental U.S. On average, there are 2,400 cases every year. The latest largest WNV breakout occurred in 2021 in Arizona state U.S., sickening 1,715 people, including 125 deaths. This calls for people's attention and generates awareness for mosquito-related diseases, supplementing market growth.

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.

Effective Actions of Coils to Trigger Demand for Coil Product Type

Based on product type, the market is segmented into coil, spray, cream and oil, vaporizers, and others. The coil segment is projected to grow at a significant rate in the near future. Mosquito coils provide immediate actions to the surrounding and are also widely available in all places. This, in turn, surges the demand for coils contributing to the segment growth.

The coil segment accounted for a market share of 28.78% in 2023 and is expected to grow continuously during the forecast period.

By Raw Material Analysis

Chemically Derived Repellents to Dominate Owing to their Efficiency

Based on raw material, the market is segmented into plant-based repellents and chemically derived repellents. The chemically derived repellents segment generated the largest share in the market as they are the most effective alternatives when dealing with mosquitoes. 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.

On the other hand, plant-based repellents are projected to grow fastest over the projected years. As these products are safer, toxin-free, and made with naturally derived essential oils from plants, they are preferred by consumers. A shift in consumer preference toward organic and herbal products is amplifying demand for plant-based mosquito repellents.

By Distribution Channel Analysis

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 2023. 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.

Meanwhile, 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.
