The rise in the number of insect-borne diseases is driving the growth of the Insect Repellent Marketin Europe. In order to protect themselves from diseases caused by mosquitoes or ticks, consumers prefer different insect repellent products such as apparels, oils and creams, and stickers and patches among others. According to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, the changing climatic conditions would increase the habitation of tiger mosquitoes in the Northern part of Europe on account of warmer and wetter weather conditions. All these factors are likely to increase health awareness among European consumers, which in turn is expected to drive the usage of insect repellent products in Italy, France, Spain and other European countries during the forecast period.
In addition, insect repellents are marketed through strong distribution channels such as online stores, supermarkets, and convenience stores. Increasing availability of these products in stores and supermarkets are also promoting the growth of the insect repellent market in Europe. Moreover, manufacturers also sell insect repellent products through internet retailing. The collection, variety, discount, and price range of products available with internet retailers is diverse leading to increasing popularity of the channel. Many companies are entering into joint venture agreements with different online stores in order to market these products through their websites.
Key manufacturers operating in the insect repellent market are continuously focused on developing safe and innovative insect repellents. These products provide protection from critical insect-borne diseases such as malaria, dengue, Lyme disease, and yellow fever among others. With advancement in technology, insect repellents are being made from natural products such as lemongrass, citronella oil, and eucalyptus oil which produce less smoke and are comparatively safer.
However, stringent government regulations prevailing in Europe hinder the growth of the insect repellent market. Various organizations such as the European Environmental Agency and the European Medicines Agency have implemented different safety standards to conclude whether an insect repellent is harmless enough for its intended use, thereby maintaining consumer safety.
Increasing demand for new and innovative insect repellent products containing natural ingredients is likely to create significant opportunity for growth of the European insect repellant market in the future.
