Health consciousness is increasing amongst the urban population across the globe as awareness regarding safety against insects is increasing. Furthermore, the increasing literacy rate in developing countries is aiding the rural population to focus more on health & cleanliness. People are taking more precaution about their health and are becoming aware about the use of protective aids to prevent insect bites that may cause harm to the body especially during outdoor recreational activities.

The use of synthetic and natural insect repellents advertised in various pharmaceutical forms is rising due to the increasing occurrence of vector-borne viral diseases such as Zika, dengue, chikungunya, malaria, and yellow fever. There has been a change in consumer demographics shifting toward use of natural insect repellent products such as essential oils that have low toxicity and do not harm the environment rather than DEET based products that may cause health issues due to toxic chemicals.

Factors such as high levels of urbanization, favorable climate, and lack of awareness about basic sanitation plays a major role in insect breeding, providing potential opportunity for the insect repellent manufacturers.
