Pest Control Market Growth and the Adhesives Used in Traps

According to Future Market Insights, the global pest control services market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5.4% through 2026. Let’s take a closer look at the causes for this growth and the adhesives used in pest control traps.

The pest control market encompasses a range of areas including:

  • Bedbug control
  • Mosquito and fly control
  • Rat and rodent control
  • Termite control

In recent years, this market has seen steady growth due to the following factors:

Increasing Pest Population

The pest population for rodents and mosquitoes in particular are rising due to environmental disruptions and consumer lifestyle shifts. As their populations rise, so does the demand for pest control.

  • Rodents

Warmer temperatures have increased rodents’ reproductive potential. Additionally, flash floods can displace rodents from their habitats, bringing them into closer contact with people.

Increasing construction projects means people will see more rodents near or in their homes as well. Furthermore, as consumer lifestyles shift, and we spend more time outside, rodent populations are likely to grow where discarded food is available.

  • Mosquitoes

Increased temperatures and water sources have enabled mosquito populations to flourish. Additionally, as consumer lifestyles shift and international travel and trade rise, the likelihood that mosquitoes will be transferred from one location to another increases as well.

Bedbug populations are also rising due to increasing urban populations.

Increasing Health, Safety and Environmental Concerns

Pests can bring various diseases in contact with the human population, which can have a negative impact on our health, safety and well-being. As people desire an improved standard of living and have an increase in per capita income, they are investing in pest control services.

Additionally, people are becoming more environmentally friendly. This means increased demand for new, green products that will help them maintain a pest-free home.
