Short-term Effects of Sprays, Hazardous Residues of Products Affect Sales

The mosquito repellent market is expected to surpass an output of 16,06,087.3 thousand units by 2031. However, several disadvantages of mosquito repellents such as short-term effects of sprays, risk of hazardous chemicals, and breathing problems associated with coils are affecting product sales. Hence, apart from mosquito bednets, manufacturers are diversifying their production in creams, oils, and lotions to offer protection against mosquitos for longer hours.

Apart from essential oils and wipes, manufacturers are mainly focusing on insecticide-treated net (ITN) to provide safety alternatives to consumers. On the other hand, mosquito zappers are gaining popularity, since they do not emit smoke or residual hazards.
