Europe Market for Insect Repellents to be Driven by Rising Prevalence of Insect-borne Diseases

Article Description

The market for insect repellents in Europe has been witnessing an immense rise since the past few years. The rising prevalence of insect-borne diseases in the region has rapidly increased the demand for insect repellents in Europe. Analysts project the demand for these repellents to continue at a high pace in the coming years on account of the growing concerns over insect-borne diseases among European citizens. 

According to a research study published by Transparency Market Research (TMR), the Europe insect repellent market attained a value of US$1.40 bn in 2014. Experts project it to rise at a CAGR of 3.0% between 2015 and 2023 and reach a value of US$1.82 bn by the end of 2023.

Non-body Worn Insect Repellents Segment to Maintain Dominance over Coming Years

Body and non-body worn insect repellents are the key types of products available in the Europe insect repellant market. The non-body worn insect repellents segment led the Europe market in 2014 with a share of more than 95%.

The high demand for coils, liquid vaporizers, mats and sheets, and aerosols paved the path for this segment in Europe that year. The efficiency, low price, and easy availability of these products in the market have also prompted people to prefer them over other options. Analysts expect this trend to continue in the coming years.

The demand for body worn insect repellents, specifically oil and creams, is also expected to rise in the near future. The ease of use provided by these repellents is likely to propel this segment considerably over the next few years.
