“Pest control market projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.3% from 2016 to 2021”
The pest control market is projected to reach USD 22.04 billion by 2021 at a CAGR of 5.3% from 2016. The market is driven by factors such as easy availability of pest control service providers, climate changes, economic development, and increasing pest population. With the increase in disposable income, the demand for a hygienic environment increases, thus driving the demand for advancements in pest control techniques. Regulatory requirements such as environmental protection laws and changing government policies across diverse regions are restraining factors for pest control product manufacturers and service providers.
“Biological control to be the fastest-growing segment from 2016 to 2021.”
The biological control segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2021. Parasites, pathogens, and predators are the beneficial insects which play a vital role in biological control methods to manage pests and control damage. These are also known as natural enemies which is important for reducing the numbers of pest insects and mites.
“Termites segment will lead the market by 2021.”
Termites need moist conditions to breed and thrive. Drastic climatic changes have resulted in an increase in termite population, which will require more pest control solutions. Control methods of termites vary with the species to be controlled, hence driving the pest control market in the coming years. The termites segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
“Asia-Pacific market to grow at the highest CAGR between 2016 and 2021.”
The increase in awareness about modern pest control practices, food dependence on the agricultural sector in India and China, and demand for maintaining hygienic environmental conditions are expected to fuel the growth of the pest control market in the Asia-Pacific region. China and India are among the top five countries producing rice and wheat. As the production of these commodities is high, they need pest control products to avoid post-harvest losses.
