Transfluthrin is a pyrethroid insecticide, which has very low persistence. It is extensively used to kill flies, mosquitoes, butterflies, and cockroaches. Transfluthrin is a highly volatile substance that acts as a contact and inhalation agent.
Global transfluthrin market is expected to exhibit significant growth over the forecast period, owing to increase in number of cases suffering from mosquito-borne diseases along with growing global warming which is facilitating breeding of mosquitoes and flies. Increasing health awareness, affordable cost of transfluthrin, and increase in government initiatives for control of insects are factors expected to aid in growth of the market.
According to the statistics provided by the World Health Organization (WHO), around 80% of the world population is at the risk of insects borne diseases. In 2017, globally over 700,000 deaths are being caused by insect-borne diseases each year. Therefore, various health organizations such as World Health Organization (WHO) and The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) are recommending the use of transfluthrin to reduce the risk of such diseases. However, the market is expected to face certain challenges if the product is being used without following the instructions. If the product is not being used appropriately, then it may result in symptoms of poisoning such as skin allergies, running nose, irritation, anxiety, and nervousness.
On the basis of application, the eliminate mosquitoes segment is expected to hold a dominant position in the global market over the forecast period, owing to an increase in number of diseases which are caused by mosquitoes such as dengue and malaria. Increasing instances of stagnant water are also leading to increase in the breeding of mosquitoes, thereby driving demand for transfluthrin for efficiently dealing with the mosqitoes.
Among all the regions, the Asia Pacific region is dominant in the global transfluthrin market in 2018 and is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. In the rural and urban areas of emerging economies such as India, the key market players, the local government, and the non-government organizations are focusing on increasing awareness about various diseases such as water- and air-borne diseases. Furthermore, introduction of different varieties in transfluthrin products, increasing adoption of the products by consumers due to growing awareness regarding the benefits, and rising insect-borne diseases are driving the Asia Pacific transfluthrin market growth.
