Additionally, frequent climate changes globally support the demand for pest regulator services. As per the World Health Organization (WHO), the recent warmer temperature can raise the fly insect’s populations by 244% by 2080, which may cause the concomitant increases in fly-borne diseases over the forecast period.

The outbreak COVID-19 shows a significant impact on the insect pest control market as well as considerably impacting the global economy due to the imposition of lockdowns across various regions for evading the spread of coronavirus. However, the government offers several subsidies to critical industry players, which supports the industry growth.

Moreover, companies that offer regulator services like purification and disinfection exhibit a rise in the business because of the growing inclination to disinfect houses. Also, there is a rise in dengue fever in South East Asia, along with the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has increased people's awareness and is likely to increase the pest regulator services to control the mosquito's growth which in turn is boosting the insect pest control market demand.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
The emergence of biological control solutions is propelling the industry demand. The continuous advancements in both ingredient and product levels create various opportunities for insect pest control market growth. For instance, the adoption of biological insecticides shows no or minor side effects on human health is, which is gaining huge traction among the population. In addition, it is projected that the utilization of chemicals for insect regulators will considerably decline by the consumers in the impending period as it is hazardous for both human health and the environment.

In addition, regulatory restructuring guidelines and resistance improvement among pest organisms are also boosting the industry demand. The forbid usage of neonicotinoid pesticides across Europe is the major example of biological regulator methods being highly adopted compared to chemicals pesticides.

Furthermore, the growing proliferation of machine learning-based technologies in pest regulators is also attributed to industry development. This will boost the effectiveness and competence of control by incorporating a wide range of tools like biological agents (microbial and predators), chemical pesticides, synthetic pheromones, and light traps.

The penetration of diverse, innovative technologies, like AI, has increased because of the low service cost, and it can easily be accessible in remote areas. Therefore, the rising inclination towards biological control solutions and technological advancements in control methods catalyzes global insect pest control industry development in the forecast period.

Insight by Type

The bed bugs insect segment is the leading segment in terms of revenue generation in 2021 and is projected to dominate the market over the forecast period. The rising number of bed bugs is causing some allergic problems, blood loss, or some infections among the population that may require some medical treatment which in turn is boosting the market demand.

As per the research done by the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), in 2018, across the U.S., 97% of the professionals have treated bed bugs, 84% of them noted being contacted to treat different types of problems only to discover bed bugs present instead. Also, 69% of professionals stated that the whole bed bug service was helpful, and 66% said that the demand for these services is rising.

Besides, 89% of professionals encounter bed bugs in apartments/condominiums, 45% in college dorms, 46% in office buildings, 68% in hotels/motels, 36% in hospitals, and 59% in nursing homes. Thus, these factors may lead the segment dominance globally, which stimulates the market demand. The termite segment is estimated to show the highest growth rate in the forecasting years. The termites can eat wood or wooden furniture and can agitate mold and mildew, which can cause spores to be released into the air.

Geographic Overview

Geographically, North America is the most significant contributor in terms of revenue and dominates the overall global market. The increasing number of residential and commercial spaces, as well as gradual economic development, have led to market demand. Moreover, as per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), above 640,000 cases of insect-borne diseases between 2004 and 2016 were accounted for across the U.S. Also, during that time, nine novel microbes were spread by infected mosquito bites, and ticks were discovered in the U.S.

In addition, Asia Pacific is projected to grow at the highest pace across the globe over the forecast period. The significant threats across the region are mosquitoes and termites; moreover, other pests such as flying insects, cockroaches, ants, and rodents are majorly present across the region.

Furthermore, the presence of a large food-associated market across the region contributes to market growth as several stringent regulatory policies are the frame for consumer health safety. Furthermore, several factors growing, such as emerging economies, increasing disposable income, and increasing responsiveness of pest regulator services, are fueling the market growth across the region.
