Market Insights

Insects are ubiquitous and considered pests due to their appearance which is commonly considered frightening as well as the various adverse effects insects can produce. Insect pest control uses various techniques to eliminate insects, particularly those such as bedbugs, mosquitos, termites and several others. Due to the sheer size of the insect population, and the applications of insect pest control in commercial, industrial, residential, and agriculture, demand has been observed to be consistent and healthy. Market Research Future has recorded all observations and insights in its latest report on the global insect pest control market for the assessment period from 2018 to 2023.

Many common insects found in urban areas are carriers of disease or have venomous bites that could have adverse reactions. In industrial settings, particularly in the manufacturing sector, insect pest control is required to ensure the quality of the products and reducing the chances of contamination. This is particularly important in the food & beverage industry. In agriculture, certain insects are very harmful to crop as they can damage them and reduce overall yield. Due to these factors, insect pest control witnesses consistent demand. The growing construction activities around the globe, particularly emerging economies due to the expansion of urbanization is expected to result in an increased demand for insect pest control. Moreover, climate change has created conditions conducive to the growth pest population. New diseases such as Zika, which is insect-borne have been discovered, and the rates of other insect-borne diseases such as malaria, and dengue have increased, thus driving the demand for insect control. Moreover, increasing agricultural activities have also boosted the demand for insect pest control. The easy availability of pest control vendors and the increasing launches of safe insect pesticides is expected to provide the market with ample room for growth.

Insecticide and pesticides need to evolve consistently as insects can sometimes build immunity. Moreover, adverse health effects due to some pesticides challenge the growth of the market. To mitigate this, market players are increasingly investing in the production of biologically safe products.
