Aerosol Sprays to Witness Strong Demand

Predominantly, insect repellents are of two types, body worn and non-body worn. The demand for non-body worn insect repellent is much higher than their body worn counterparts. Coils, mats and sheets, electric/liquid vaporizers, and aerosol sprays are the most preferred insecticides among consumers in the U.K. Among these, the demand for aerosol is significantly higher. Aerosol cans are used to kill or repel different insects including mosquitoes, and cockroaches among others. These sprays are not meant for direct application on the skin unlike body worn aerosol sprays. Aerosol cans are tightly sealed and do not leak or spill.

Currently, all aerosol containers are tamper-evident and tamper resistant. Moreover, these products are manufactured in such a way that they home in on the target without much effort. Aerosol cans control the pattern of the spray, the size of the particle, the volume released per second, and the concentration of the spray for maximum effect. Hermetic sealed package protects and extends the life of the product. Therefore, the product can be stored for longer time without the risk of getting evaporated. Thus, owing to these factors, aerosol sprays accounted for the major market share in 2016 and is expected to lead the market throughout.
