The DEET segment is expected to hold the largest market share in 2023. DEET has proven to be highly effective in repelling a wide range of biting insects, including mosquitoes, ticks, flies, and fleas. It provides long-lasting protection, making it a preferred choice for individuals seeking reliable insect repellent solutions. DEET can be used in various formulations such as sprays, lotions, creams, and wipes, making it suitable for different user preferences and needs. It can be applied directly to the skin or clothing, making it versatile for both personal and outdoor use.

Among the various insect types, mosquitoes are expected to dominate the market in 2023. Mosquitoes are found in various regions worldwide, including tropical, subtropical, and temperate climates. They are a common nuisance and a persistent problem, particularly in areas with high mosquito populations. The widespread presence of mosquitoes contributes to the sustained demand for mosquito repellents and active ingredients to protect individuals from their bites. Mosquitoes are not only disease vectors but also cause significant annoyance and discomfort with their biting behavior. People seek effective mosquito repellents to prevent these bites and minimize the discomfort associated with mosquito infestations.

In terms of geographical regions, Asia Pacific is expected to account for the largest market share in 2023. The region has a high prevalence of insect-borne diseases such as malaria, dengue fever, chikungunya, Japanese encephalitis, and Zika virus. In 2021, India reported a Zika virus outbreak in Kerala, marking the first activity in the region of South-East Asia since the outbreak in Rajasthan in 2018. These diseases pose significant health risks to the population, leading to a greater demand for insect repellent products and active ingredients to protect against insect bites.
