Factors such as the usage of natural raw materials in mosquito repellent candles such as citronella oil, eucalyptus oil and various others. The awareness for health and wellness among the consumers in Europe is increasing gradually due to which the manufacturers operating in the mosquito control market are focusing on introducing mosquito repellent candles. Compared to the other categories of mosquito repellent products such as coils and liquids, mosquito repellent candles are made with natural products such as citronella oil and eucalyptus oil. Thus, they are less harmful to human health and far more effective in repelling mosquitoes. In addition, the increasing incidence of tiger mosquitoes in Europe owing to the West Nile fever is another factor that is having a positive impact on the demand for mosquito repellent candles. Mosquito borne diseases such as dengue are on the rise in some parts of Europe due to the increasing establishment of tiger mosquitoes that carry deadly disease causing viruses with them. Moreover, rapid shift in the climatic conditions is another factor that is increasing the number of tiger mosquitoes on account of warmer and wetter conditions.

In addition, high carbon content in mosquito repellent candles is another factor that is inhibiting the growth of the market.

Moreover, burning of paraffin wax also produces soot, which when airborne is subject to inhalation and can have severe adverse effects on human health and the environment as well such as ozone layer depletion. Candles made with lead wick can affect the central nervous system of the human body that can result in hypertension, breathing problems, neurobehavioral changes and several others.
