A substance that protects human body from insect bites or which deters them from settling on human body is referred to as body worn insect repellent. Some of the insect bites may be harmful to human health causing various diseases such as Lyme disease, dengue, yellow fever, and others, which in turn increases the demand for body worn insect repellent products and fuel the market growth. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Lyme disease is the fastest growing vector-borne disease in the U.S. and it affects around 300,000 people every year, out of which 25% of the patients are children. Also, in 2015, around 2.35 million dengue fever cases were reported in America causing 1181 deaths and continues to affect several other regions such as Asia Pacific and Europe, as per the World Health Organization (WHO).
Furthermore, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) collaborated to promote awareness on insect repellents and recommends to use insect repellent products to avoid insect bites, burgeoning growth of the market.
However, stringent government regulations is one of the restraining factor for the market growth. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, insect repellent skin patches are to be registered under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) under minimum risk exemption regulations in 40 CFR 180.
