Insect Repellent Market: To Reap Excessive Revenues By 2024-2031

Companies Boost R&D to Develop Insect Repellents to Kill SARS-CoV-2 Virus

Insect repellents hold promising potentials in killing COVID-19 pathogens on surfaces. A team of scientists at Britain’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) is gaining popularity for sharing their preliminary findings of their research that demonstrate insect repellents can kill SARS-CoV-2 virus. Since consumers are concerned about their health and home environment, manufacturers in the insect repellent market are capitalizing on this opportunity to maintain steady supply chains in retail stores for easy availability of products.

Companies in the Britain insect repellent market are anticipated to boost their R&D activities to see if insect repellents would provide a protective layer against coronavirus. The ever-evolving nature of COVID-19 strains has brought Citridiol, an insect repellent by Citrefine International Ltd. into the limelight.

Insect Repellent Fabrics Gain Advantage over Traditional DEET Containing Products

Synthetic ingredients such as DEET (N,N-diethyl-meta-toluamide) insect repellents have advantages including proven efficacy in preventing bites from mosquitoes and remain effective for several hours. However, its oily feel, potential irritation to eyes, and other sensitive areas are inhibiting market growth. Hence, manufacturers are innovating in roll-on DEET insect repellents that are easy to apply are non-sticky and very much loyal to the user base.

The global insect repellent market is projected to reach the revenue mark of US$ 9.3 Bn by the end of 2031. Manufacturers are seen innovating in insect repellent fabric. For instance, an Indore-based startup Clothing Innovation in India is being publicized for its patent-pending Armour technology that factory treats fabric to repel insects such as mosquitoes, ticks, and ants, among others.
