Insect Repellent Manufacturing
The Insect Repellent Manufacturing industry produces consumer products that deter insects from landing on a particular surface. Consumers purchase repellents to avoid insect bites and prevent insect-borne diseases, such as the West Nile virus, Zika, malaria and Lyme disease. Over the five years to 2017, quelled fears of disease transmission and the prevalence of low-cost imports have negatively affected the industry. At the same time, manufacturers are introducing plant-based repellents to attract eco-conscious consumers and appeal to shifting consumer tastes against potentially toxic chemical inputs. Nevertheless, industry revenue is expected to decrease over the five years to 2017. Over the next five years, industry operators are expected to invest in research and development to produce more plant-based natural repellents.
This industry manufactures insect repellent for consumer use, including skin applicants, sprays and liquids. Consumers typically use industry products during outdoor recreation or long exposure to nature.
