Increasing demand for new and innovative insecticide products containing natural ingredients is likely to create significant growth opportunity for the insect repellent market in the coming years. Manufacturers operating in this market are constantly engaged in extensive research and development activities to develop natural and safer products rather than synthetic products. Examples include conceal candles manufactured by BioSensory Inc. and the Yankee Candle Company. These companies are focused on manufacturing conceal mosquito repellent candles instead of the standard mosquito repellent candles made from citronella.

Thus, conceal candles made from citronella oil or eucalyptus oil are natural and have proven to be more effective.

Factors such as high levels of urbanization, favorable climate, and lack of awareness about basic sanitation in the Asia Pacific region plays a major role in insect breeding, providing potential opportunity for insect repellent manufacturers to tap the region. Liquid vaporizers are expected to have significant growth rate in terms of volume as they are effective in repelling mosquitoes, can efficiently work indoors, and do not require any body application. Moreover, these vaporizers are also smoke-free as compared to mosquito coils. This reduces the risk of breathing difficulties as long as proper precautions are being followed while using the vaporizers.

Asia Pacific region is expected to account for the highest market share in both value and volume terms owing to favorable insect breeding climate and population living in denser areas in this region. South America is expected to have the second largest CAGR followed by Asia Pacific as this region is also geographically located in the subtropical region.
