Animal Repellant Chemicals Market: Snapshot
Some animals can be pests in agricultural fields, personal gardens, or yards. As these animals can lead to serious damage to the property and prove lethal to the overall produce by massively destroying it qualitatively and quantitatively, certain animal repellant products are employed on a regular basis to keep them away. A number of animal repellant chemicals also find extensive usage across a number of application areas, serving to keep pests at bay.
Rising demand across the globe and the resultant rise in the number of companies in the market has led to the development of a vast variety of animal repellant chemicals in the recent past. While some chemicals act as poisons for animals, some work by employing substances that create the scent of a material that is proven to lead to an animal’s natural aversion, such as the scent of the urine of a predatory animal. Animal repellant chemicals that smell like coyote urine, for instance, is commonly used to keep deer away from agricultural fields.
The global market for animal repellant chemicals has promising growth opportunities, especially across agrarian economies. However, some concerns regarding the safety and lethality of active ingredients in the chemical for pets and animals and the issue of the impact of remnants on soil and agricultural produce hinder the adoption of a number of animal repellant chemicals.
Animal repellent chemicals are chemical products that are used to control pests, typically in agricultural fields and gardens. Animal repellent chemicals generally work by taking advantage of an animal’s aversion to something. They mimic the naturally available substances that repel or deter animals. The ideal repellent is completely specific for the target animal. New animal repellent chemicals are regularly launched in the market; however, their efficacy varies. Some repellents may contain active ingredients at concentrations below the threshold levels. Efficacy of repellents may vary depending upon several factors, including availability of resources and seasonal changes in plant palatability. Some animal repellent chemicals are strong and smell similar to ammonia, while others work by imitating the scent of a predator. Animal repellent chemicals are generally applied as foliar sprays which have to be reapplied periodically.
Based on type, the global animal repellent chemicals market can be segmented into chemical type and natural type. The natural type segment has been expanding since the last few years due to its characteristic features. The animal repellent chemicals can also be categorized into systemic repellents, area repellents, and contact repellents. Systemic repellents are compounds absorbed and translocated by the plant, rendering the foliage less desirable. Area repellents are products that create a chemical barrier owing to which the animals do not cross into the area. These compel animals to avoid the particular area. Contact repellents are products that are attached directly to a plant. This is one of the most effective ways of application of animal repellent chemicals. Natural animal repellents are also effective, and can be used without any restrictions. Various methods of application of animal repellent chemicals include use of fear-inducing repellents, use of conditioned avoidance repellents, and induction of bad taste.
Increase in demand for fruits and vegetables is also driving the animal repellent chemicals market. The practice of gardening is another key factor that has to be taken into consideration. Animals that may seek shelter and nourishment can quickly destroy flowers and vegetables and landscaping plants. Increasing number of people across the globe are turning toward the application of animal repellent chemicals. The most effective animal repellent products can be applied by a licensed pest control professional and this is expected to be a restraint for the global animal repellent chemicals market. There is an increasing demand for animal repellent chemicals which are effective against possums, rabbits, hares, deers etc particularly around forestry, horticultural and life style blocks.
The global animal repellent chemicals market has expanded moderately in 2016. This trend is anticipated to continue during the forecast period. Asia Pacific is estimated to offer attractive growth opportunities for the animal repellent chemicals market owing to the expansion in the agriculture sector with rise in demand for these repellants in countries such as China and India.

Latin America is expected to offer attractive growth opportunities to the animal repellent chemicals market due to the presence of countries where agriculture is the primary sector. The animal repellent chemicals market in Middle East & Africa is likely to expand at moderate pace during the forecast period.
