Key Findings of Market Report

  • Innovation in the Insect Repellent to Pave Way for Rapid Growth of the Market

In low- and middle-income countries, vector-borne diseases contribute to a huge health as well as financial burden. Insect repellent researchers are seizing this chance to create long-lasting repellents that are useful in fending off illness causing insects. Abraar Karan, MPH '17, a Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health alumnus, is one of the co-founders of Longsleeve and is coming up with a game-changing mosquito repellent that is safe to use, non-smelly, and waterproof. Businesses in the global insect repellent market are innovating in mosquito repellents that last up to 72 hours after DEET additives were classified as mildly toxic by the US Environmental Protection Agency.

  • Intensifying R&D Activities to Gain Competitive Advantage to Bode Well for the Market

Natural materials in insect repellents are becoming more well-known as well as widely accepted among consumers. Kao Corporation, a Tokyo-based chemical and cosmetics firm, is known for its low-viscosity silicone oil, which repels mosquitoes and has the ability to be used as an insect repellent product. Firms in the global insect repellent market are drawing inspiration from these innovations and increasing R&D in unique mosquito repellent technology that makes use of a hydrophobic oil surface. This surface is what mosquitoes dislike and it keeps them from remaining long enough to bite. With intensifying research and development activities the global insect repellent market is likely to observe considerable growth in the years to come.

Mosquitoes have been seen rubbing their legs together in an effort to remove the hydrophobic oil that has adhered to them. As a result, insect repellent manufacturers are producing products based on hydrophobic oil technology, which produces low-viscosity silicone oil. In food packaging, essential oils function as insect repellents. In order to secure produce, active food packaging is in high demand in the food industry at the moment. Such developments are serving as core factors in the global insect repellent market, leading to its expansion.
