Body Worn Insect Repellent Market: Sizeable Demand Expected with Rising Vehicle Production and Strengthening of the Economy

The rising prevalence of insect borne diseases across developing nations has led to a considerable increase in the demand for body worn insect repellents. These products have seen strong demand from the agricultural sector and oil and mining industries.


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/12/2017 -- The rising health awareness among consumers is a key factor fuelling demand from the market. Demand for insect repellent is high across developing countries such as India and Brazil as they witness a high prevalence of insect borne diseases such as dengue, malaria, and yellow fever. According to the WHO, over 3 million cases of dengue were reported across Western Pacific, Southeast Asia, and the Americas in 2013. This number is expected to increase further over the next few years, thus creating opportunities for the body worn insect repellent market.

Due to the relief they provide, body worn insect repellents are used by people working in industries such as agriculture and oil and mining. These repellents shield people against insect bites.
