DUBLIN, June 22, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The “Insect Repellent Active Ingredients Market by Type (DEET, Picaridin, IR 3535, P-Methane3,8 DIOL, DEPA), Concentration (Less than 10%, 10% to 50%, More Than 50%), Insect Type (Mosquitoes, Bugs), End Application and Region – Global Forecast to 2028” report has been added to  ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The insect repellent active ingredients market is projected to grow from USD 1.0 Billion in 2023 to USD 1.5 Billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 7.6% during the forecast period.

Governments and health organizations often issue guidelines and recommendations regarding the use of insect repellents, particularly in areas with a high prevalence of insect-borne diseases. Such regulations and recommendations can significantly impact the demand for insect repellent active ingredients, as they influence consumer behavior and product formulations.

The DEET segment is expected to account for the largest share in 2023.

Based on type, the DEET segment is projected to lead the insect-repellent active ingredients market during the forecast period. DEET has received regulatory approvals from health authorities, such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and similar agencies in other countries, which further endorse its safety and effectiveness. These approvals provide reassurance to consumers and contribute to the market dominance of DEET-based products.

The Aerosols segment is projected to dominate the market share in the End application segment during the forecast period.

Based on the End application segment, the aerosols segment is projected to dominate the market share during the forecast period. Aerosol repellents are portable and suitable for on-the-go use. Their compact size and convenient packaging make them travel-friendly, allowing individuals to carry them in bags, backpacks, or pockets easily. This portability makes aerosols a preferred choice for outdoor enthusiasts, travelers, and individuals engaged in activities where mosquito or insect exposure is expected.

Asia Pacific is expected to account for the largest market share in 2023.

The Insect repellent active ingredients market industry has been studied in North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Rest of the World. Asia Pacific accounted for the largest market share in 2023. Increased awareness about the risks of insect-borne diseases and improved education on preventive measures have contributed to the growing demand for insect repellents in Asia Pacific.

Health campaigns, government initiatives, and public health organizations promote the use of insect repellents as a preventive measure, further driving the market for active ingredients. The “”Fight the Bite”” campaign in Australia launched in 2015 and evaluated in 2017 aims to raise awareness about mosquito-borne diseases like dengue fever and promote the use of insect repellents. It includes television and radio advertisements, social media campaigns, and educational materials distributed through healthcare providers.
