Leishmaniasis which is a disease caused by bite from sand flies is increasing in the U.S. according to the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA). With rise in outdoor recreation activities and ecotourism in the U.S. there is an increase in the number of soldiers and travelers infected with leishmaniasis which is caused by sand flies. Although leishmaniasis is an uncommon disease in the U.S. and North American countries, the number of persons affected by it is rising. This is increasing the demand for flies repellent in the U.S. and other North American countries.

Leishmaniasis is increasing in Europe as well. Leishmaniasis is of three types: visceral, cutaneous, and mucocutaneous. As per WHO, visceral leishmaniasis is endemic in the following European countries: Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Albania, Greece, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia, etc. Thus, rise in leishmaniasis is expected to increase the demand for flies repellent products in Europe.

In 2015, as per WHO, cutaneous leishmaniasis cases were most reported from Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and other Asia Pacific countries. In 2015, in Iran, the number of reported cutaneous leishmaniasis was 908 which is highest in the world. Visceral leishmaniasis, which is another type of leishmaniasis caused by biting of sand flies is prevalent in China, India, Thailand, and other Asia Pacific countries. Rising number of leishmaniasis cases is driving the demand for flies repellent products in Asia Pacific as no vaccine for the disease is available.
