Insect Pest Control Market Trends

  • Adoption of Smart and Sustainable Pest Control Measures Will Bolster Growth.

The rise in the development of biocontrol agents that can be utilized to control the population of pests is emerging as a significant pest management method. As these biological agents are naturally existing living organisms they tend to be less toxic than some of the commonly used chemical pesticides. Hence their incorporation in the industry is gradually augmenting. Moreover, the development of software and its increasing adoption across several application areas is expected to act as a vital factor in boosting the market in the upcoming years. Pest control software such as PestPac, PestRoutes, SalesRabbit, and others are getting significant recognition among consumers due to their ability to collect and analyze pest data, along with providing suitable solutions.

Additionally, The increasing prevalence of life-threatening vector-borne diseases such as malaria, dengue, yellow fever, Zika virus fever, and others is raising great concern in society. According to the estimations of the World Health Organization (WHO), over 17% of all existing communicable diseases are vector-borne and are liable for more than 7,00,000 deaths annually. The increasing spread of diseases caused by pests is stressing the intensive utilization of pest control services to keep diseases caused by them at bay. Rising awareness about different pest control methods such as chemical, mechanical, and biological, and their increasing affordability is projected to further augment the market during the forecast period.

Insect Pest Control Market Segment Insights

Insect Pest Control Pest Type Insights

The  Insect Pest Control market segmentation, based on Pest Type, includes Insects, Termites, Rodents, and Others. Insects form a major part of pest types for which pest control is widely utilized. Insects are known to pose serious threats to agricultural as well as non-agricultural areas, hence requiring various products and services to control and eradicate them. Proliferating the population of insects such as mosquitoes and ants and their ability to exponentially increase their population is a major threat to human health. The demand for insect control products is anticipated to grow substantially in developing regions, especially where the climate is warm and humid, as climatic conditions are ideal for breeding several insects. The rapidly increasing population of rats and mice and the rise in awareness about diseases caused by them is projected to aid the rodent pests control market during the upcoming years.

Insect Pest Control Method Insights

Based on End-use, the  Insect Pest Control market segmentation includes Chemical, Mechanical, and Biological. At present, the chemical control method is the most widely accepted pest management method across the globe. The high efficiency of chemical pesticides to eradicate a huge number of pests is a significant reason for their widespread adoption. Moreover, the low cost of chemical pesticides, high stability, and easy availability in the market are other crucial factors that are responsible for the dominance of this segment. However, in the upcoming years, the demand for chemical pest management products is expected to witness a downfall due to the high toxicity threat associated with them, coupled with increasing government regulations on their use. The segment is anticipated to grow at the fastest pace owing to its less toxic nature as it is a modern technique to eliminate existing pests by using their natural enemy.

Insect Pest Control Application Insights

Based on Application, the  Insect Pest Control market segmentation includes Residential, Commercial, and Industrial. The commercial segment comprises hospitals, schools, offices, shopping malls, and other commercial buildings is projected to remain high. High health and economic risks associated with a pest infestation in public and commercial places is significantly driving the market. The high affordability of commercial pest management services along with governmental support in terms of various commercial pest management programs is expected to magnify the market size during the forecast period. The demand for pest management products and services across the residential segment will witness robust growth on account of an increasing number of houses, coupled with the rising prevalence of pest infestation by common pests such as cockroaches, rodents, ants, and others in houses.

Insect Pest Control Industry Developments

Jan 2022 Using CRISPR/Cas9 technology, biologists at the University of California, San Diego, have devised a mechanism for reversing pesticide resistance. According to Nature Communications, Tata Institute for Genetics and Society (TIGS), The genetic editing tool will be used by the researchers to replace an insecticide-resistant gene in fruit flies with the regular insecticide-susceptible variant. This breakthrough has the potential to considerably reduce the number of insecticides utilized. This method could also be used to improve the prevalence of a naturally occurring genetic mutation in mosquitos that makes them resistant to malaria parasite transmission.

Jan 2022 A pilot trial of an SIT campaign in a Havana neighborhood, supported by the IAEA's technical cooperation program and in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), reduced mosquito (Aedes aegypti) numbers by up to 90 percent last year, and early reports indicate that cases of mosquito-borne diseases were eliminated in the trial's final two months. The SIT is one of the most eco-friendly insect pest control technologies yet devised. Irradiation, such as gamma rays and X-rays, sterilizes mass-reared insects, preventing them from reproducing while remaining sexually competitive. Gato Armas has spent the last five years collaborating with IAEA and FAO experts to collect baseline data and create the pilot SIT experiment as an alternative to mosquito control measures that are losing efficacy and are harmful to the environment.
